How Chiropractic Care in Iowa City Works

When it comes to chiropractic system, the keyword is “straight”. Your spine needs to be in a straight alignment in order to unblock nerve energy and allow such energy to flow better throughout the entire body. With repeated visits and adjustments of spine at particular pressure points, your spine is properly realigned leading eventually to an optimized overall health.

Homeostasis

Your body functioning can be negatively affected when structures in the body are not properly aligned. The same result happens when there are interferences to the working of your body systems, which are designed to work together harmoniously. This natural tendency for the body to seek a proper balance is known as homeostasis, a cornerstone philosophy in chiropractic treatment.

Trigger Point Therapy Alternative Treatment to Body Pain

To an untrained person, the feeling of unexplained pain which may trigger local twitch response is likely to be readily regarded as muscle spasm. But upon closer look, especially if it involves hyperirritable spots in your skeletal muscle, it is possible that such is a trigger site aka trigger point aka muscle knot.

Pain radiates from your so-called trigger points due to a host of possible factors, such as:
— disease
— chronic muscle overload
— psychological distress
— homeostatic imbalances
— trauma to the region
— collision trauma
— infections
— health issues caused by unhealthy lifestyle like smoking
— activation by other trigger points

The trigger points affect not only the muscle where they are located, but as well as causing “referred pain” in tissues supplied by nerves. Hence, applying a variety of proven techniques can enable release of triggers that caused referred pain.

At Washington Street Wellness Center in Iowa City, IA, the trained and skilled therapists will diagnose your trigger points  by examining symptoms and pain patterns associated with the felt trigger sites. Once you undergo a session for trigger point therapy, the therapists will apply focused pressure on the trigger sites to relieve the body pain, stress, and ailment you might have.
