Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is a non-invasive program for the release and control of acute and chronic pain, and limited range of motion caused by myofascial trigger points.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists do not use drugs or injections, but a variety of skills including active/passive stretch, stretch-and-spray, and manual techniques.

This therapy was developed by Janet Travell, MD and David Simons, MD in the late 1960's.

It effectively interrupts the pain-spasm-pain cycle by inactivating trigger points in muscles.

A Stretch Rehabilitation Program

A Stretch Rehabilitation Program specifically designed for the patient's individual needs is given. Following this program as directed retrains the muscles to stay at their normal resting length in a pain-free state.

The Stretch Rehabilitation Program is KEY to maintaining pain relief.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy emphasizes patient self-sufficiency. Family members and friends can be taught this program to support the patient's home practice.
