    I have just went through a very bad bout with my mid shoulder area, the chiro could help but it would not last so I went to see my Dr. I was even blaming the chiro when she said it was no wonder it was so bad and the muscles were so tight it was hard to see which ones were causing the problems.

    Her RX were trigger point injections of lidocaine and then the chiro the next week, I am to keep this up for a few weeks. With the help of both of them I am getting some neede relief.....I cannot take muscle relaxers so I use heat and ice alternating them for 10 min a couple of times a day.

    It had become so bad both hands and forearms were numb and I was dropping things. Much better.....not perfect but better.
