Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a chronic condition that affects the fascia (connective tissue that covers the muscles). Patients with MPS often describe a deep, aching pain in their muscles, including areas that seem unrelated to their initial injury.
Understanding and treating this web of pain is complex, but upper cervical chiropractic care might just hold the key to unlocking relief. Dr. Joey Kramer at Hope Chiropractic in Southlake, Texas, specializes in treating myofascial pain through precise upper cervical adjustments.
The Web of Myofascial Pain and Its Reach
Myofascial pain can extend far beyond the site of the original trigger point, causing a cascade of discomfort and reduced mobility.
- Trigger Points: Small, tight knots in muscles that can cause pain elsewhere in the body.
- Referred Pain: Pain that is felt in a location different from where it originates, a hallmark of MPS.
- Compounded Impact: How untreated myofascial pain can lead to a range of symptoms, from headaches to numbness.
Upper Cervical Care: A Potential Key to Myofascial Pain Relief
Upper cervical chiropractic care can be a vital treatment modality for those suffering from myofascial pain by addressing the body’s alignment from the top down.
- Alignment and Relief: The connection between proper cervical alignment and relief from myofascial pain.
- Restoring Balance: How upper cervical care helps restore the natural balance of the body, potentially easing myofascial trigger points.
- Holistic Approach: Considering the patient’s overall posture, muscle balance, and spinal health in upper cervical chiropractic care.
Integrating Upper Cervical Chiropractic into a Multi-Modal Treatment Plan
Dr. Joey Kramer believes in a comprehensive treatment plan that may include upper cervical care as a cornerstone for managing myofascial pain.
- Comprehensive Assessment: Tailoring a treatment plan after a thorough evaluation of the patient’s condition.
- Collaborative Care: Working alongside physical therapists, massage therapists, and other specialists to provide a cohesive treatment experience.
