Trigger Point Therapy in NYC

Trigger points are painful knots that develop in certain parts of the body, such as the neck, shoulders, arms, back, and legs. Trigger points can be a major contributing factor to a persons pain and discomfort. Trigger points form when the particular body part is either injured or overused. A trigger point can be produced after a single event like a car or sports accident, or it can form when muscles are strained through improper posture or repetitive movements, such as in ergonomically-incorrect work posture, or in sports.


Our NYC Chiropractor will determine if you have any trigger points during the evaluation of your muscles. When a trigger point is found the first step is applying pressure on the area. The doctor will utilize their thumbs or fingers to do this. The duration of pressure depends upon the muscle’s response; once the trigger points disappear, the patient will end treatment with a deep tissue massage.
