Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy

At Urban Chiropractic, situated in the heart of Jersey City, we provide a non-invasive therapeutic approach known as Trigger Point Therapy. This form of treatment is known for its efficacy in relieving muscular tension and discomfort. 

At Urban Chiropractic, we are trained in identifying and treating myofascial trigger points – tight knots of muscle fibers causing localized or referred pain. We deploy an array of specialized techniques, primarily involving manipulation through pressure and stretching, to effectively target trigger points. 

The crux of the treatment lies in the application of sustained pressure to the trigger point. This method, also known as Ischemic Compression, enables the chiropractor to stimulate the affected muscle fibers. The pressure applied is measured and gradual, beginning lightly and slowly increasing, thereby preventing any undue discomfort. 

The beauty of this manipulation is its ability to encourage the trigger point to relax and elongate. This releases the muscle knot, alleviating the tension and pain that was previously associated with it. Furthermore, it also promotes increased circulation to the area, facilitating a faster healing process. 

Following the application of pressure, we then apply a series of strategic stretching techniques to the now-relaxed muscle. These stretches further help to increase flexibility, reduce muscle stiffness, and promote a greater range of motion. 

In addition to direct treatment, we also provide guidance on exercises and stretches that can be performed at home. This allows our clients to continue the therapeutic effects of the trigger point therapy between sessions, thereby expediting their recovery process. 

We are known for our holistic approach, ensuring that our treatment goes beyond just addressing the symptoms. We seek to identify and treat the underlying cause of the problem, ultimately aiming for long-term relief and prevention of reoccurrence. 

Our expertise in Trigger Point Therapy, combined with our commitment to patient wellbeing, makes Urban Chiropractic a preferred choice for those seeking a natural, non-invasive method of pain relief in Jersey City. The therapy, carried out by using skilled manipulation, pressure and stretching techniques, offers a compelling solution to muscle tension and discomfort, contributing to an overall better quality of life for our clients.
