Relieve Severe Muscle Spasms & Trigger Points

muscle spasm

Muscles spasms and trigger points are very common and are often caused by:

  • Overuse
  • Dehydration
  • Electrolyte abnormalities
  • Poor posture

The spasm/trigger point can occur abruptly or over a period of time.

Mild muscle spasms can be treated with gentle stretching.  

Severe muscles spasms & trigger points however,  are painful and do not resolve easily.  In these cases, we use the below combination of treatments to relieve severe muscles spasms & trigger points.  

1:   Warm the area (either heat or gentle massage)

2:   Chiropractic adjustment to associated area

3: Dry needling to the specific muscle(s) & associated area

4: Cold pack to the treatment site

This 4 step combination has proven to have the greatest results in our office for relieving severe muscles spasms.
