Chiropractic and Trigger Point Therapies

Chiropractic care focuses on the health of the spinal column in order to improve pain and dysfunction. Arthritic patients always have secondary chronic spinal trauma due to compensation for their arthritic joint pain. Both should be treated. As should the myofascial disease (trigger point pain) that develops in muscles from inappropriate use during compensation. Good lameness management involves joint, spinal, and muscle pain management, and is so much more than drugs alone.
