Book a Trigger Point Therapy Appointment with Dr. Perry

What to expect as Dr. Perry's Patient

Dr. Perry practices a system of clinical bodywork called Clinical Trigger Point Therapy. The essence of the system is to allow the patient's pain to direct the treatment. In this manner, each clinical session is customized to the individual patient. This is achieved by constant interaction and feedback between the Dr. Perry and the patient. A typical clinical treatment consists of the following components:

  • A brief history (or update) of the patient's pain is discussed.

  • Based on this information, Dr. Perry will begin examining the patient for common trigger points.

  • During this process, the patient is asked to give constant feedback as to the location and severity of their pain. This will aid Dr. Perry in quickly finding the responsible trigger points.

  • This process is not a test of the patient's pain tolerance, the patient is is control of the pain's intensity at all times. Dr. Perry will elicit only enough pain to guide the treatment.

 

General Treatment Information

  • Dr. Perry provides all clinical services.

  • A clinical session generally lasts from 25-40 minutes.

  • Trigger Point Therapy consists of hands-on "pressure point" type of massage and specialized stretching techniques.

  • The joint manipulation component of the treatment is either traditional Chiropractic manipulation or a Soft tissue release type of manipulation for those patients who would prefer not to receive traditional Chiropractic manipulation.

  • All work is done with the patient's clothes on.

  • Most acute pain disorders typically take 2-3 treatments to achieve lasting pain relief. If the pain is a chronic condition, it may take 4-8 treatments to achieve lasting pain relief.

  • After a session you should expect to feel looser and more relaxed (reduced muscle tension). Though it is likely that your pain will be significantly reduced after a session, in some acute pain situations it may take several hours for the involved muscles to relax and provide significant pain relief.
