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 Myra on Nov 08
Very thorough with her evaluation, treatment, and recommendations for self-care at home!
by Anonymous on Nov 01
Very professional and knowledgeable, she will describe your muscle system easily in a way that explains why the pain is one location and why it is referenced in other areas, and then moves through the rehab process. Recommended.

Her knowledge and expertise is stellar.

I love that after explaining my pain and discomfort to Jen, she always knows what muscles to treat and alleviate my pain. After a session with her I leave feeling better and with my body relaxed. She also explains how I should treat my trigger points at home and what tools to use. Without Jen's treatment I wouldn't be able to continue exercising and live the active lifestyle I have.

I have had 3 sessions with Jennifer now, and one to go before the marathon. I am simply stunned by the difference in my body, and the level of pain I am experiencing in my hips, pelvis and lower back. For the first time in over a decade, I was walking around pain-free yesterday... giving Jen and Trigger Point my highest recommendation.

Jen is so nice and easy to talk to. She is also very knowledgable and knows exactly how to treat the pain you might be experiencing. I totally recommend her!

Very thorough and professional. Knows her stuff. Most importantly, has really helped my pain.

I dislike that it hurts, but that's what the treatment is about--getting rid of blocks. Jen does a terrific job.
