A trigger point is a knotted area in a muscle. In many animals, diagnostic tests cannot find the cause of their chronic pain or lameness. These animals will have trigger points. For such cases only specific trigger point treatment will help.
Dogs with chronic back pain may also have trigger points which increase their discomfort.
At Asia Paws we treat trigger points with a combination of a a hand held TENS pen (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) and stretching.
