Trigger Point Therapy
At AFC, trigger point therapy often includes two widely-recognized treatment options: therapeutic massage and trigger point injections. Depending on the location and severity of a patient’s trigger points, one or both therapies may be used to ensure optimal pain relief. The first remedy is therapeutic massage, and this highly effective treatment option uses manual pressure to eradicate stubborn trigger points and stimulate healing. The practitioners at AFC offer complimentary massage workshops to help patients experience relief at home. Trigger point injections are the second treatment option, and these injections contain either a steroid (cortisone) or plant-based medicine (Sarapin) to loosen the trigger point and reduce pain.
