Left untreated, conditions such as injuries, accidents, over-use syndrome, etc.,causing pain, may worsen over time and put the body at risk for future injuries and additional pain. Marla Kaplan-Pelle and her staff of Licensed Massage Therapists have had great success treating patients with Trigger Point Therapy, and advanced medical massage therapy technique.
Trigger Point Therapy will often help headaches, neck stiffness, carpal tunnel type symptoms, frozen shoulder, back pain, low back stiffness, shin splints and more. Trigger points are accumulations of waste products around a nerve receptor. Trigger points form in muscles which have been overused or injured due to an accident or surgery. "Trigger Points can present themselves as sharp pain, dull ache, tingling, pins and needles, etc., " states Ms. Kaplan. She also strongly encourages anyone with pain to seek out a proper diagnosis and corrective care.
Active trigger points are those which cause discomfort. Latent trigger points wait silently in the muscle for a future stress to activate them. It is common to attribute this discomfort to other conditions, instead of our tight muscles which harbor trigger points.
Trigger points are not visible with traditional medical testing such as MRI or X-ray. When trigger points are not treated, they will create satellite trigger points in the affected area. For instance, a trigger point in the trapezius may cause a trigger point to appear in the temple. The trigger point in the temple then may cause a trigger point to appear in the jaw. And, voilà! - a case of TMJ.
Trigger point massage is not a relaxing, "fluff and buff" technique. It requires the participation of the client to communicate the presence and intensity of pain and discomfort. The therapist and client work together as a team to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment.
It is common to find great improvement after one treatment. Repeated treatment may be necessary for those with chronic trigger points. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy and Wellness Day Spa is proud to offer this advanced massage therapy technique.
