Finding Advanced Solutions for Pain Relief
Muscle pain can come from a variety of symptoms, infections, autoimmune disorders, and much more. It is one of the most common types of pain with more than 80% of U.S. adults experiencing some form of acute muscle pain sometime in their lives. In fact, the second most common reason people visit their doctor is for lower back pain.
A common cause of muscle pain is from overusing a group of muscles. Many people get muscle pain by overstretching or overusing muscles in the back.

Treating Muscle Pain
Trigger point therapy is a recommended and offered treatment here at our practice and is one of the most popular forms of treating muscle pain. Tripper point therapy eliminates "knots" in the muscles or areas that contain trigger points underneath the skin. Generally, they cause irritation and inflammation around the nerves.
Our main goal is to provide patients with options to prevent disability and immobility. After conducting a thorough examination and recommending various educational outlets to practice better living habits, we will give additional medication for pain relief such as steroids, injections, prescription anti-inflammatories, and acetaminophen.
