Trigger Point Therapy For Low Back Pain

Previously, lower back pain was considered a standalone ailment. Ater a number of research trials, physicians now understand that low back discomfort can be caused by a number of different disorders. It can be misleading when the same term is used to accurately make a diagnosis and effectively treating the issue.

There have been some very promising discoveries related to treat:

Pain in the Lumbar Paraspinal region

While many of those suffering from back soreness believe their discomfort is attributed tocks. Referred pain from trigger points nestled in the pelvic muscles is usually the culprit responsible for soreness in this lumbar region.

Pain In And Around The Sacro-Iliac Joint

Sacroiliac joint pain is another category of common back pain. While this joint is actually found in the pelvis, pain can be felt in the lower back as a direct result of sacroiliac issues. Discomfort can also be blamed on trigger points which also contribute to achieve full relief.

Pain Across The Beltline

Another area where patients experience back pain is the beltline area. Discomfort may present on one or both sides. Soreness here is mainly a direct result of referred pain from points located in neighboring muscle tissues. The discomfort that’s isolated to by trigger points referring pain signals from the abdominal area.

Pain In The Gluteal Or Buttock Region

Pain in the Gluteal or Buttocks and cause further discomfort.

Pain Down The Back Or Side Of The Leg

There can be numerous sources for pain traveling from the lower back down one or both of the legs. A leading cause of soreness that runs down the legs is a disc problem, like a herniated disc. This condition essentially pinches nerves or their roots against the disc causing loss of sensation, tingling feelings, pain that shoots down the legs, and motor problems in the affected leg. Pain from disc issues is generally persistent and severe.

How Does Trigger Point Therapy Work?

Trigger point therapy is a very successful method for treating varying degrees pain throughout the patient’s body. Trigger point therapy for low back pain is minimally invasive and highly effective. A trained physician or therapist will be able to achieve full relief from trigger point therapy, though some may see results after the first session. Full participation in the aftercare program of trigger point therapy is essential for success.

There are several different reasons for what might seem to normal.

Clinical research performed for more than ten years has shown that trigger point therapy is a highly effective method of treating many types of lower back muscle disorders and relieving major discomfort. New information gathered from data collected during the research is allowing doctoms, see your physician without delay. The sooner you receive trigger point therapy for your muscle issues, the better your changes of fully recovering from your painful condition.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
