Pain Neutralization Technique
Are you living with pain that you’re looking to relieve? If so, the pain neutralization technique may work for you. This is a natural, non-invasive, and manual technique that does not use the assistance of instruments. Instead, it uses gentle touch to find pressure points in the affected area(s) of the body and manipulate damaged tissues.
The pain neutralization technique has been proven to work with a vast range of conditions, especially chronic conditions. The gentle manipulation focuses on trigger points that lead to muscle pain, in order to essentially reverse the painful reactions of these nerves.
This specific technique is comfortable, easy, and effective. If you have been living with pain, Physiomed can help. Contact our Vancouver physiotherapy practice today to schedule a consultation and find out how the pain neutralization technique can benefit you.
How does the pain neutralization technique work?
Many other forms of treatment that focus on trigger points use large amounts of manual pressure, such as a deep tissue massage. The pain neutralization technique, on the other hand, simply uses the light pressure of fingertips on the trigger points in the affected area(s). In fact, the process is so gentle, that you may feel little to no sensation. You may even fall asleep!
What is a trigger point?
So, what exactly is a trigger point? Trigger points are basically small knots that form in the muscles when they become damaged, injured, or overworked. They can be very painful, especially when pressed. However, our Vancouver chiropractors, massage therapists and physiotherapists are highly trained and experienced in targeting exactly the right area of the trigger point(s) so you will not feel any pain.
Everyone’s body has a specific reflex that is known as the Clasp Knife Reflex or the Golgi Tendon Organ Reflex. This reflex is one of the body’s many defense mechanisms that protects muscles from injury. The pain neutralization technique works to activate this reflex by using light pressure, targeted stimulation, and accurate positioning. This helps the muscles to relax and relieve the trigger points that have been causing you pain. In many cases, the pain neutralization technique has even been known to resolve chronic, persistently painful conditions.
