Trigger-Point Therapy

Trigger-points are small, irritated, constricted areas in muscles which can cause pain throughout the body. Janet Travell, M.D., President John F. Kennedy’s physician, was at the forefront in developing trigger-point therapy.

Diagnosis of trigger-points is gentle and non-invasive. With over 30 years of chiropractic orthopedic and neurologic experience Dr. Lux is able to diagnosis whether the cause of your pain stems from nervous systems conditions, other health issues, or trigger-points in the muscles.

Common causes of trigger-points are spinal misalignments, muscle imbalances, lack of exercise, poor posture, repetitive stress activity, incorrect sleeping positions, emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies, improper lifting, auto accidents, sports injuries, falls, and smoking.

Common trigger-point symptoms are arm, neck, low back, hip, or leg pain, dizziness, headaches, numbness, tingling, muscle spasms, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
