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!

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!!

Jen is so professional and knowledgeable and can fix problems that stump doctors. I highly recommend Jen for treatment. She is so friendly and easy to talk to. It is amazing what it feels like to have relaxed pain free muscles.

I have fibromyalgia, so I've got that widespread pain going for me. And for a long, long time, I've had the worst pain and numbness from my shoulders down to my fingers. It's gotten so bad, it affects everything I do — driving, typing, cleaning, even drying my hair. So I went to Jen in desperation. After a very thorough analysis, she zeroed in on some muscles in my neck. My neck! Who knew? After just two sessions, I would say the pain and numbness is 30% of what it was. I have great hope that with a few more, it'll be all but gone. I will say, these muscles in particular aren't the most fun to have deeply massaged. But it's SO worth it. She's fun and funny, and she takes your mind off of what's going on. I love that her goal isn't to make you reliant on her. She gives you the gear and homework to get the job done on your own. Basically, Jen is a magician and a genius, and I'd recommend her to anyone with vexing issues. I'm just upset that I lived with this for so long.
