Improperly working muscles are a common source of pain in the body.  The pain usually comes from the muscle being torn (a strain), the muscle being in a state of spasm (involuntary constant contraction), or a “knot” in a portion of the muscle (often referred to as a Trigger Point).  Trigger points are very tender when touched and often refer pain and/or tingling sensations to other parts of the body.  This often leads to concerns of nerves being pinched or some more serious disease being present.  Trigger points can usually be resolved with massage, stretching, and chiropractic adjustments.  Acupuncture is also very effective at eradicating pesky trigger points, especially in the larger muscles.  For all of your massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture needs please call Marcum Chiropractic at 503-235-7130.
