Hands-on Muscle Therapy

Chronic headaches, numbness or tingling down the arms and lower back pain are common mild complaints that people live with. If dangerous conditions are not the cause there is little family doctors can do besides prescribing pain medication.

For many of these concerns, tight or spasmic muscles can be the cause of or a major contributor. Postural muscles in the neck, shoulders and back are working all day long keeping people upright during work and play. These muscles can pull on or squeeze bones and nerves to cause severe pain. Relaxing these muscles and then strengthening them is vital to prevent the pain from coming back.

There are many methods to relax tight muscles: dry needling acupuncture, cupping, ISTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) and assisted stretching are all part of muscle therapy. See which method works best for you.
