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.

You may have noticed that chiropractic care is very efficient. Because chiropractic care directly addresses spinal health and the health
of your nerve system, many of your body's other systems are also affected, indirectly.

Your central nerve system - your brain and spinal cord - is your body's master system. Every other organ, tissue, and cell receives
instructions on when and how to do its job from the nerve system, via spinal nerves and smaller nerve branches. Simply put, when
your nerve system is not functioning properly your body as a whole will not function properly. You may have pain. You may have
symptoms of specific diseases. It is important to address these symptoms. Also, it is critically important to address possible causes
which lie within the nerve system.

Using gentle correction of spinal misalignments, chiropractic care helps optimize the functioning of your nerve system. A healthy nerve
system helps ensure good health in your gastrointestinal, cardiopulmonary, and endocrine systems, and other systems as well.

based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell,
tissue, organ, and system of your body.

    While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is
    more vulnerable, covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When
    these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can
    irritate the nervous system. This disrupts the function of
    the tissues or organs the nerves control, and is called the
    Vertebral Subluxation Complex or Subluxation Syndrome.

    Today’s Doctor of Chiropractic takes four years of post-
    graduate college education to master the adjusting “art” of

In addition to the science and art, Chiropractic philosophy recognizes that only the power
that created the body can heal the body—if there isn’t any interference.

Instead of covering up your symptoms with drugs, chiropractic looks to correct the
underlying cause(s).

    Chiropractic is the science of locating these areas of spinal
    joint dysfunction, the art of correcting them, and the
    philosophy of things natural.

    The Art: After a thorough examination and a review of your
    health history, your chiropractic doctor will recommend a
    specific care program. If yours is a chiropractic case, this
    will include specific spinal adjustments.

    The words “chiropractic adjustment” describes ways using
    a carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore
    spinal bones to a more normal position or motion. When
    spinal function is improved, nervous system function
    (health) can improve too.

After years of training, chiropractic doctors become experts at using the right amount of
force in the right direction. This may require a quick movement or in other instances a slow
and constant pressure. The chiropractic adjustment is truly an art.

The Philosophy: Your chiropractor will focus on reducing or removing any interferences to
your own inborn healing abilities.

Your nervous system controls everything.

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function
of virtually every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Your nervous system
consists of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body.

Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy that concerns itself with the relationship
between the nervous system and the function (health) of the body.


Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective
tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of this
musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good health. Ask
your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may include
specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other
conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition and
