Often, when undergoing treatment for an injury, pain can be severe and continue for an extended period of time, which makes things very uncomfortable for a patient. We know that many injuries cause a lot of pain while the body is healing and receiving treatments and therapies. Luckily, Align Chiropractic and Medical also focuses on pain management in Surprise, AZ. That’s why apart from the therapies used to heal the body, we have other treatments specifically to help ease your pain and make the recovery treatments more effective.
We have several techniques we use for pain management to make your treatment more comfortable. Your treatment program will be customized to your pain, injury and/or condition. At the end of the day, we want to get to the root of the problem so that you can make a full recovery and not be susceptible to similar injuries and pains.
Trigger point therapy can be better understood by firstly understanding, what a trigger point is and it’s symptoms. A trigger point is a tender, painful area of muscle; a knot in layman’s terms. Trigger points may also manifest as tension headaches, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain, lower back pain, and decreased range of motion in legs.
The process itself is an outpatient appointment, so you can be in and out in no time. And we use numbing medications or steroid medications and apply it directly into the trigger point. These shots help the muscle and joint related injury pain. Chronic pains such as fibromyalgia can also be treated by this type of treatment for your pain management in Surprise, AZ.
