Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
Chiropractor in Fair Lawn, NJ: Dr. John Cintineo
Academy Spine & Physical Therapy • Since 1987
With Myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points in your muscles or trigger points can cause pain in other parts of the body. Our medical professionals are experienced in alleviating this pain with specialized hands-on techniques.
Normal myofascia muscles should feel pliable and elastic. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a specific muscle has been contracted repetitively. This can be caused by repetitive motions used in jobs (and most daily jobs are repetitive), hobbies/sports or by stress-related muscle tension.
Symptoms of myofasical pain syndrome:
- Deep, aching pain in a muscle
- A tender knot in a muscle
- Back Pain and Neck Pain
- Sinus issues or allergies
- Immune system issues
- Numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities
Trigger point therapy for myofascial pain:
Dr. John Cintineo and his team will find and target the more rigid areas and the areas that are affected by this tightness and utilize hands-on manipulation to release the tension found in the body. We will work with you and help you manage and release the tension that has been building. This tension would normally seem unrelated to other ailments patients may be having, but this chronic pain disorder is due sensitivity and tightness in your certain tissues.
Acupressure therapy Fair Lawn, NJ
Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure in the pressure points and meridians much like acupuncture does with the use of needles. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body’s life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing.
When used properly acupressure helps in promoting the circulation of blood. When you apply pressure to certain points it helps in activating and opening up the flow of blood in the blood vessels present below the skin. This increase in blood flow helps almost all organs in the body regenerate and perform optimally. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, improve appearance, relieve tension in the back, and help heal emotional pain for greater health and beauty.
