A Guide to Acupuncture Trigger Points January 21, 2019

A Guide to Acupuncture Trigger Points, North Hempstead, New York

Trigger points are sensitive points in the muscles and can lead to pain and discomfort. Those who suffered a previous muscle injury or experience frequent stress are more likely to develop these trigger points. If you are dealing with this issue, schedule a trigger point therapy appointment at an acupuncture clinic. Below is a detailed guide about this therapy.

How It Works

acupunctureDuring trigger point therapy at an acupuncture clinic, the acupuncturist will first touch your muscles to find where the pain is located. After the points are identified, they will use dry needling to reset the muscle. This technique involves inserting solid filament needles into the muscles to release pressure and pain. The needles are fine and short. While some patients may not feel anything at all during this therapy, others may experience mild discomfort. Some patients report feeling a cramping sensation.

Conditions It Treats

Trigger point therapy can help treat a wide variety of conditions, including headaches, low back pain, tinnitus, and sports injuries. If you have one of these conditions, and haven’t had luck with other treatments, this therapy may be worth trying. It’s non-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of any medications.

Side Effects

It’s common for patients to experience bruising, soreness, and minor bleeding after trigger point therapy. However, these side effects are only temporary. If you use over-the-counter pain relievers and apply ice packs to the area, you can significantly decrease discomfort.
