Types of Therapy

A small muscular nod, or specifically a trigger point, can be responsible for pain in parts of the body that are quite some distance from where the nodule is itself. It is common for a trigger point in the low to mid back to radiate pain and discomfort-into the shoulders and neck. This neck and shoulder pain is likely to cause pain in the head that can be a dull ache or a sharp, intense pain.


UNDERSTANDING TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

This particular kind of therapy is designed to work on the nodule directly. There is specific, controlled pressure that is applied to the trigger point. After a few seconds of pressure, it is released. During this type of massage, the patient participates and communicates by identified areas of discomfort as well as having controlled deep breathing.

By relieving the trigger points in a muscle, it is allowing the muscle knot to loosen. Patients often experience immediate relief following one treatment. Regularly scheduled trigger point therapy can give you the benefits of pain management from stress, injury, etc.

Active Release is a non-invasive, hands-on treatment is that works to correct soft tissue restrictions that cause pain and mobility issues. The goal is to relax musculature as well as break down scar tissue and adhesions in order to optimize function in the body.

Active release is a soft tissue manipulation of muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons, nerve, or joint capsules. The affected structure is manually held with constant tension in a shortened position, the structure is then lengthened through a full, comfortable range of active motion, thereby relaxing or lengthening the affected area.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility treatment, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. It can be used for the treatment of pain as well and also serves as a tool to enhance athletic performance.

PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.

PNF stretching is also the fastest way known to increase flexibility. PNF is an acronym for proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. PNF was initially developed as a method of rehabilitating stroke victims.

BodyPure PNF stretching techniques employ isometric and resisted contraction followed by relaxation and active stretching of effected areas. This unique technique often results in immediate increased range and function as well as decreased pain

Graston Technique® is a form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). This is a process in which the clinician uses a set of handheld instruments to break down the scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves).

This technique has been found to provide patients with quicker and improved outcomes in decreased pain, Increased range of motion, and improved overall function
