If you have back pain, you know how much it can interfere with living how you want. You may struggle to walk, lift, sit, or even lay because of the discomfort. While pain medications can reduce your pain, even over-the-counter ones have their share of drawbacks. An option that may help you is trigger point therapy at Signature Health Clinic.

What You Should Know About Trigger Point Therapy 

Trigger point therapy is a specialized type of massage therapy that targets your trigger points -- the locations of the origin of your pain. For instance, you may have lower back pain as a result of an issue with your legs. Therefore, the massage focuses on your legs.  

Dr. Tuttle massages the center around your triggers point to ease the pressure. The entire concept of trigger point therapy revolves around the fact that waste products build around your nerve clusters and stimulate nerve pain and other nerve-related symptoms. Sometimes, these symptoms spread beyond the initial site of the pain because the waste can cause bands or nodules that press on your soft tissue. The massage breaks up the clusters to ease your symptoms.

What to Expect During a Trigger Point Therapy Session 

During your initial appointment, Dr. Tuttle will ask you to fill out a medical history report. From this information, Dr. Tuttle determines if trigger point therapy is safe for you based on your current and previous medical conditions. 

At Signature Health Clinic your treatment starts on a sterilized table. You may go through breathing exercises first. Next, your therapist identifies the root of your problem based on your Dr. Tuttle evaluation. Through your trigger point therapy, your massage therapist performs techniques that deeply stimulate the muscles around your trigger points. 

After the procedure, you should have minimal discomfort from the treatment itself; however, you may need several sessions to feel the full benefits of trigger point therapy. 

Trigger point therapy helps with back and other neuromuscular pain and other symptoms. The procedure is safe for most, and the entire treatment process caters to your particular needs.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I've been seeing Dr. Tuttle for over 6 months, and he's been a huge help. Dr. Tuttle goes over and above - where other doctors only saw the alleviation of pain and swelling, Dr. Tuttle has helped me with my posture, core strength, breathing, and stress. I recommend him whole heartedly.

    Best of best! I had car accident last March, and I had been treated Dr. Tuttle. He was very caring and his treatment was very effective. My Shoulder pain improved dramatically and back pain is completely gone! I recommend him to everyone especially to who experience motor vehicle accident.

    I love Chiropractic Center of Raleigh Hills. I have been going there for over 4 years. It's awesome the staff is knowledgeable and accessible. Dr. Tuttle has rehabbed me through many an injury and also helped me to avoid surgery on my knee. If you are an athlete or just looking for some relief from daily aches and pains people with Dr. Tuttle's skill set are invaluable. Also, it is super convenient because they also have a sports rehab center next door and a massage therapist as well.
