Trigger points are hypersensitive, tightened areas, which can occur in any muscle.
(Trigger points cause pain, tingling, burning, weakness and other symptoms. They have a special property called referred pain. This means that they cause pain right where they are - AND pain in other areas).
Myofascial therapy is any physical, bio mechanical, biochemical, psychological or spiritual treatment that can relieve patients of myofascial pain and dysfunction.
The modalities that I deploy are physical, psychological and spiritual, encompassing the mind, the body and the spirit.Treatment will involve trigger point therapy and yoga therapy. Within the therapy session, psychological and/or spiritual triggers may surface.
These triggers are your action, reaction and emotion within the physical therapy process. As these triggers arise, they are addressed through a process known as cognitive therapy.
Cognitive Therapy seeks to help the client overcome difficulties by identifying and changing dysfunctional thinking, behavior, and emotional responses.This involves helping clients develop skills for modifying beliefs, identifying distorted thinking, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.Treatment is based on collaboration between client and therapist and on testing beliefs.
