Trigger Point release THERAPY Edmonton
Do you know what trigger point therapy is all about? We provide this form of therapy to help release pain!
A trigger point release is a form of manual therapy that can be performed by applying gentle, light pressure from the hand to specific body spots, usually referred to as trigger or pressure points.
At Family Physiotherapy, this therapy is provided by trained and licensed practitioners specializing in pressure point release. This pressure from the hands helps to relax and normalize trigger points within a widespread, sheath-like, fibrous tissue found within the musculoskeletal structures known as fascia. The fascia is flexible and helps to protect ligaments, tendons, nerves, muscles, and bone and allows coordinated movement within them. However, when injury, improper loading, stress, sustained posture or repetitive movement, poor nutrition, or hydration is imposed on the body, the fascia becomes stiff and inelastic, which makes normal movements to be limited around the connective tissues causing immobility, pain, as well as the high tendency of injury.
The benefits of trigger point release help release the stress and tension in the fascia and other affected parts of the body to ease pain, improve movement in the musculoskeletal system, and lower the possibility of tissue damage sooner or later.

What does a trigger point release session look like?
Trigger point release therapy has been very effective in treating various conditions including myofascial pain. During your first appointment, your massage therapist or physiotherapist will perform a complete assessment. The session includes a physical examination, previous health history, health limitations, and experiencing symptoms. You will be encouraged to ask questions to help your therapist understand your condition and make assessment outcomes more responsive during this process.
Once every piece of information is gathered, your practitioner, who can provide a treatment plan that will abate your pain will determine whether your condition can be cured by trigger point release therapy or not. However, we always advise patients to be well-hydrated. And it has also been observed that when drinking an adequate amount of fluids, it can make both active and passive therapeutic services effective. On a regular day, it is advisable to consume at least one-third to one-half of your body weight in fluid ounces per day, and during exercise or energy-consuming activities, more fluid intake is required.
