Trigger points are muscle spasms that result from nerve irritation near the muscles involved. They may feel like hard knots within taut bands of muscle fibers. Common trigger points are located along the spine in the neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, gluteals, and even the temporomandibular joint. Trigger point therapy is a form of massage that holds pressure over the small area of muscle for 15-20 seconds to reduce the local constriction.

Bio of Dr. Grandfield
Dr. Grandfield offers gentle and unique Chiropractic care with a focus on correcting the cause rather than the symptom. Dr. Grandfield utilizes NUCCA, a specialized adjusting technique, to correct misalignments. This focused adjustment is very light and effective to restore normal body balance and function. No cracking, popping or twisting kind of adjustments. With precision and specificity, NUCCA adjustments last longer which result in fewer visits to correct the problem.
