Why you should avoid random treatment of trigger points (part 1).
By Warren Hammer, MS, DC, DABCO
An orthopedic friend recently saw a patient of mine. He felt an injection of a trigger point (TP) at the upper trapezius and surrounding areas was necessary, since that was the patient's area of chief complaint and there was a tender, radiating nodule. I told him I hoped the injection would help, but I did not feel random treatment of a local area of pain would necessarily treat the cause of the problem.

You may never see a particular set of patients in your office – the ones who are either afraid of neck adjustments or have had a bad experience. A vast majority of those who had a bad experience did not have a life-threatening vascular event. They just got hurt; maybe it was mild or maybe it was significant.

A common component of low back pain is sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Signs of SIJ dysfunction can include fixation with reduced range of motion, and localized pain or joint laxity and inflammation. Restoration of SIJ mobility frequently abates pain and restores range of motion and activity.

"If most doctors are like me, [they are] isolated physically and professionally. I do not make the time to connect with other doctors and also a lot of doctors do not want to be connected for a lot of reasons. Dynamic Chiropractic keeps me grounded and connected.
