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.

If you suffer from chronic pain due to myofascial trigger points, contact the Monmouth County physical therapists at ProFysio Physical Therapy today. Our fellowship-trained Doctors of Physical Therapy can help pinpoint the physiological causes of your symptoms and craft a custom-tailored treatment plan that best fits your individual needs.

We accept most insurance plans and proudly offer free consultations to all who approach us for help.

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:

  • Shoulders
  • Glutes
  • Calves
  • Quads
  • Temples
  • Neck
  • Wrists
  • Jaw
  • Hip

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.
