Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
EPAT Treatment in Monmouth County – (732) 333-6360
Myofascial trigger points, also known as simply trigger points, are hyper-sensitive
spots of muscle and connective tissue which can develop in multiple areas
of the body from muscle injury or repetitive strain. When stressed or
injured, these points contract and cause pain, tightness, migraines, and
other debilitating symptoms. Fortunately, once identified, myofascial
trigger points can be treated through a combination of
physical therapy exercises and
extracorporeal pulse activation technology (EPAT) treatment.

Treating Myofascial Pain with EPAT Therapy
While many physical therapy treatments involve exercises meant to strengthen
muscles and tendons, since myofascial points are already contracted, special
alternative methods are required to help relax the affected areas and
unlock the contraction mechanism. Along with manual therapy and stretching,
many myofascial trigger points can be treated through the use of EPAT
therapy. EPAT therapy is a non-invasive and safe procedure performed at
weekly intervals which involves exposing the specific trigger points to
controlled pressure waves, stimulating metabolism blood circulation, and healing.
Our doctors can use EPAT therapy to treat trigger points on all areas of
the body, including:
Once the various trigger points are softened and released, our doctors
can help craft a personalized exercise regimen to help you retrain your
muscles and prevent the affected areas from locking up again. Many patients
experience relief in as little as one treatment, allowing them to return
to normal activities without discomfort.
