HOW DOES IT WORK?
Trigger Point Therapy (TPT) is a technique we use to rehabilitate muscular tightness or ‘knots’, as they are sometimes referred to. This technique is a tolerable pin pointed pressure on an area of hyper-irritability for a period of up to 30 seconds (sometimes longer).
You will find a reduction in stiffness and pain in this area immediately and the ‘knot’ that you had previously will no longer be palpable. The physiology at play is very similar to how Myofascial Dry Needling works. But, it doesn’t involve penetration of the skin and is sometimes more preferable to some clients.
We will use TPT often throughout a treatment in conjunction with other treatment techniques to provide relief for the patient.
