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.

are being caressed with every step.Thanks Jim
