|Chiropractic Care and Trigger Points
Trigger points associated with lower back and leg pain are commonly found the iliotibial band (near the upper thigh), as well as in muscles near the hip and buttocks, including the psoas, gluteus maximus, and piriformis. Trigger points associated with neck, upper back, and arm pain are commonly found muscles near the upper back and neck such as the the shawl portion of the trapezius muscle, the rhomboid muscles, and the levator scapulae.
These chronic, persistent, localized muscle spasms are caused by postural inefficiencies, biomechanical faults, and stress. Any or all of these factors may be involved. Stress may be ongoing, depending on the person's circumstances, but posture and biomechanics can definitely be addressed and improved with chiropractic care.
Your chiropractor will analyze and identify biomechanical issues, particularly those involving spinal misalignments. A chiropractor will design treatment specifically tailored for your individual needs and, if needed, will help educate you regarding good postural habits and exercises that will be beneficial for many years to come.

I am pleased to tell the fantastic recovery I experienced while under Dr. Scott's care. I had twisted stuff in my leg as a result of tripping over a threshold. I had major pain and major weakness in that leg. Dr. Scott found the right combination of adjustments to get me on the right road to recovery. It took a couple of months but it kept improving. Now 6 months out from my last appt. (Oct 2011). I have not had set backs. Strength has maintained. I can't express enough how well I've been. Thank God and Dr. Scott!!!
