At Chicago Center for Myofascial Pain Relief, we provide exceptional, hands-on treatment for people experiencing muscle pain and dysfunction. Our treatments are designed with one objective in mind: to get each of our clients pain free and back to participating in all daily activities. We use myofascial trigger point therapy, a different therapy than myofascial release, but we feel our direct affect on the muscular AND fascial system is far more effective in making lasting changes in pain relief and in function and strength.
For those who are sports and fitness focused, we work to ensure they are at their optimum performance level, with the freedom to pursue their future athletic endeavors pain-free.
Our Sports Division; Trigger Point Sports Performance has seen Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Fire, and many other sports-focused athletes.

What is Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy?
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is a full and complete manual therapy protocol designed to eliminate pain and restore full pain-free strength and motion in muscles and fascia.
This protocol is based on the work of Dr. Janet G Travell and David G Simons, as well as by the manual applied techniques developed by Bonnie Prudden, Leon Chaitow, Judith DeLaney and countless other dedicated professionals who have made this work their own.
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists work to support medical practitioners and specific condition-based outcomes in at least three ways:
By being a good resource for the drug-free, least invasive and least expensive option. We look for the possibility of soft tissue/trigger points being a source or contributor to the patient’s pain or dysfunction. If it is found that the treatment at our clinic can or does eliminate the pain or symptoms, then no further surgical or testing measures need to be taken. We can help with many conditions including; lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, headaches, ITband syndrome, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, neck pain, stiff neck, carpal tunnel type pain and much more.
If surgical/procedural intervention was deemed necessary, the manual trigger point therapy can be a post –operative support to help achieve post-op healing and fascial health along with full range of motion and strength.
Into the future, regular myofascial therapy treatments can help the patient retain a high level of pain-free function, even into a high level of exercise or sports participation.
