Trigger Point Therapy with Aligned Modern Health
Saturday, February 2nd
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Lakeview Lifestyle Center, Free

 

-        Do you know that trigger points (muscle knots) in your back that can lead to headaches, muscle tightness, soreness, and symptoms that mimic carpel tunnel syndrome?

-        Do you know that a White House Physician concluded that the effects from trigger points may cause some 93% of pain seen in pain clinics?

-        Do you want to learn techniques that you can do on your own to address many of the trigger points common among office-based workers?

 

aligned MODERN HEALTH developed a 1-hour workshop presented by its medical staff that helps address the muscle and joint problems commonly developed by people who sit at a desk for most of the workday.  This workshop reviews common trigger points and their related symptoms and teaches participants quick and easy techniques they can perform on their own to help relieve these symptoms and address the underlying problems.

 

Our medical staff developed this program after seeing countless patients complain of the same symptoms and seeing trigger points and other muscle/joint issues that were common among office-based and other workers.  Past participants tell us that using these exercises helps improve their concentration and reduce distractions caused by discomfort.

 

Participants leave with a complimentary tennis ball and tube sock, the key tools that we’ll show you how to use to treat common trigger points.
