Management of pain services in Lincoln

Trigger points are hyper-irritable spots in the tough tissue (called “fascia”) surrounding muscles, as well as within the muscles.
An irritated trigger point can create “referred pain”, which means the migraine and headache tension you’ve been struggling with may actually be caused by an irritated trigger point in your neck or shoulder. Upper or lower back pain and sciatica pain or joint pain may come from trigger points in the hips or abdomen.

The trigger points themselves are not always painful so it is often difficult for medical practitioners or therapists to find the true source of the pain you are experiencing.

Trigger Point Release Therapy, located in Lincoln, NE, provides pain relief for back pain, shoulder or neck pain, headaches, sciatica or joint pain. Using a combination of skilled pressure release and stretches, this therapy program will reduce or remove pain, then retrain and lengthen the muscles involved to keep the pain from returning.

Make an appointment at our Lincoln office where we will evaluate your pain and address the trigger point source, then relieve the pain, retrain your muscles to prevent relapses and provide you with an assessment of activities that may cause trigger point irritation.
