Michael Westgate employs a combination of two advanced therapeutic techniques to relieve muscle and connective tissue pain.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY (St. John Method)
Based on the lifelong research of medical pioneers, Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simons, Trigger Point Therapy aims to target chronic pain at its source. Trigger points are highly irritable spots on a muscle, often contributing to pain and dysfunction.
Through applying the correct pressure, muscles can be "detrigged," bringing relief from a wide variety of conditions and a swift return to the activities you love.
Do you ever feel you've been granted a temporary relief from pain, only to have it return the following week?
When we experience an injury, our brains create new motor programs that trigger other muscles to compensate. After healing, these programs are still stored within our Motor Memories, resulting in persistent tension, decreased range of motion, weakness, and pain.
Neuromuscular Re-Programming utilizes the brain's natural neurological processes to regain muscle activity, overwriting patterns of injury and putting you back on the path to long-term health.
