Canine trigger point therapy

Trigger Points?

Trigger points are involuntary, tight, tender spots in a contracted muscle detected as a small nodule or taut band.  These areas develop when individual muscle fibers are  unable to release their contracted state. 


Activities that overwork, strain or injure the dog's body can result in muscle dysfunction and limited range of motion.  Upon compression to a specific muscular area, if your dog reacts with a twitch or pain response it is possible that a trigger point has developed.  Trigger points typically do not go away on their own, they can be latent or active.


Our goal is to get your dog 'back on his paws' by performing therapeutic trigger point protocols.
