Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy in Hood River, OR
Thomas J. Van Hee, DC, PC


Trigger Point Therapy in Hood River, OR: A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain. It may cause pain at the area directly or in other parts of the body. The pain can range from a shooting pain or a dull, aching pain.

Trigger Point Therapy reduces muscle pain and relaxes the nervous system:

Pain and tightness is usually result of overused muscles, which contribute to scar tissue formation, tears, pulls, strains and inflammation. This natural treatment targets connective tissues, major muscle groups, tendons and ligaments through cycles of isolated pressure and release. It naturally restores normal mobility between muscular tissue and nerves. This treatment can also help push joint fluid throughout the body and stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps lower inflammation.

Some of the problems most commonly relieved through Trigger Point Therapy include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Shin splints
  • Plantar fascittis
  • Tension headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder strains, including frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sciatic nerve pain/sciatica

Decrease joint stress and muscle tension:

Many patients begin to feel relief just after a few sessions, as the inflammation and tension in the body begins to decrease. Relieving tight muscles and trigger points can help in reducing joint stress and improve your overall quality of life. It can help activate muscles that have been turned off due to injury and decrease muscular pain. It is a great treatment option for many joint and muscle injuries.
