I enjoy working with our patients to get them on a pain-free path as quickly as possible. I will often start patients on a short treatment plan to help them get out of pain, followed by a re-assessment. Incorporated into care are home stretching and strengthening techniques. Treatment is essentially painless and most of the time feels sort of like a “good sore” when we do trigger point therapy to surrounding and supporting soft tissues of the spine.
If there is an acute injury, there is importance to providing some mobility during the healing phase in order to maintain proper joint function. Tissue restrictions and scar tissue can settle in and potentially create a longer term problem if left untreated.
