There's a Trigger Point for That!

Being a trigger point therapist is kind of like being a private investigator, digging for clues to reveal the underlying causes of pain.  I will ask my client questions about their symptoms and their daily activities to pick out the prime suspects. I follow that up with a posture analysis and orthepedic testing, and finally compress the muscles to see if the muscle's refer pain pattern is evident.

Being a trigger point therapist is kind of like being a private investigator, digging for clues to reveal the underlying causes of pain.  I will ask my client questions about their symptoms and their daily activities to pick out the prime suspects. I follow that up with a posture analysis and orthepedic testing, and finally compress the muscles to see if the muscle's refer pain pattern is evident.

Patients will often mention other issues they don't think are related to their muscles, to which I will usually respond, "there's a trigger point for that!" 

Trigger point therapy not only relieves pain, but a host of other symptoms. In my practice, in addition to chronic pain, I've successfully treated neuropathy, heart arrhythmia, heartburn, carpal tunnel syndrome, urinary frequency or incontinence, breathing difficulties, vertigo, head fog, watery eyes, bags under the eyes, bunions, gout, nausea, tinnitus, and bursitis just to name a few.

So don't hold back, you might be pleasantly surprised to find there's a trigger point solution to more than just your pain!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Mary Jo on Feb 08
If you have body pain and want to be understood this is the place for you.
by Pete on Nov 23
Jen is incredibly attentive and knowledgeable in myofascial release. After visiting countless chiro's and massage therapists Jen is a breath of fresh air - she truly listens to your ideas/issues and works to correct and resolve pain from it's root cause. She has an excellent understanding of posture and body mechanics and has been greatly available when I reach out to her with questions via email. I would recommend her services to anyone!

I felt so happy that I found someone who gets what I’m talking about, and my spots of pain.

Jennifer was amazing! She listened to the issue so that she was able to treat it accordingly. Within 2 days I was walking normally again after a week of pain. She also gave me manageable exercises to use to prevent the issue from arising again. Thank you!!
