Chronic Pain Problem

Trigger points cause chronic pain

Trigger points, or knots, are extremely tight, irritated spots in the muscles and connective tissue.

Many common situations cause trigger points to form.

  • Repetitive motion injury

  • Heavy lifting, pulling or pushing that over stresses muscles

  • Emotional stress that causes muscles to tense up

  • Injuries like car accidents, sports injuries or falls

  • Poor posture

  • Inactivity

  • Poor sleeping habits

Most people have multiple trigger points

Active trigger points hurt and may cause pain in other muscles, too.

Latent trigger points don’t hurt until you press on them or they become activated. Both active and latent trigger points cause muscle stiffness, weakness, restricted movement and, if left untreated, even more trigger points.

Chronic Pain Solution

Trigger point therapy treats the source of the pain

Trigger points often cause pain in other muscles.

Myofascial trigger point therapy was pioneered by Dr. Janet Travell (President Kennedy’s personal physician) and Dr. David Simons (an aerospace physician). They mapped trigger points and their referred pain patterns over the whole body. A trained therapist can identify both active and latent trigger points and release them with therapeutic trigger point massage.

  • By far, the most masterful and generous massage technicians I have ever experienced. I just got my massage, and now feel like my body has been given new life… They are incredible because they effectively restore the mind and body. Top recommendations for PalmLeaf!

    - David V., Yelp Review

  • I came to PalmLeaf Massage Clinic for back and hip pain. The session is customized for my needs. I could feel my whole body releasing the tight muscle knots from spot to spot. I literally felt like I could melt because I was so relaxed and fluid. The hip pain and lower back pain I had been experiencing was gone! I would highly suggest their services to anyone as I know the healing they provide. I cannot wait for my next massage!

    – Katie S., Yelp Review

  • This place is amazing and I tell all my friends to go. Every single therapist knows exactly what they are doing and listen to any issues you may have. I strained my back and was limping for almost two weeks. I went once to PalmLeaf Massage and I never had that issue again. I follow up with maintenance as needed. All of the therapists are all well trained. They all listened to all the issues I had and got all of the knots out of my shoulders. I will continue to go back. Wonderful place!

    – Keshia R., Yelp Review

  • I had a 90-minute massage session at PalmLeaf and it was fantastic, the best I've ever had. I can only describe the massage session as a customized fusion approach based on the different styles I've had over the years. I had a problem with "frozen" neck and shoulders two years ago that rehab sessions with a bone and joint specialist didn't quite address. Will definitely be back at PalmLeaf Massage Clinic. Trigger Point Therapy massage making more of a difference!
