Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy is done by gently pressing on the surface of the skin and observing the texture of the underlying muscle. This method reduces the pain that results from hypersensitive muscles by having a chiropractor identify your muscle knots. 

This muscle knot is made up of lactic acid, a normal byproduct of muscle activity, which sometimes gets trapped in the muscle due to physical, chemical or emotional stress. Some patients find such knots irritating or even excruciating because it could even lead to muscle cramping.

Dr Luke Ho can help you to apply varying levels pressure, with a thumb, elbow or instrument which releases the muscle and helps flush out blood and accumulated toxins. This technique is a basic yet sophisticated way to relax your muscles and revitalize your entire wellbeing.
