Things to Know Before Pulling the Trigger on Trigger Point Injections

Chances are, you’ve experienced muscle pain at some point or another. All too often, strained, overused muscles lend themselves to inflammation and achiness.

Three Most Common Car Accident Injuries Sustained In Collisions

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that more than three million people are injured every year in car accidents, and the variety of injuries sustained depends on a number of factors.

Pain Delay? Why Soft Tissue Injuries After Car Accidents Aren’t Immediately Obvious

The forces involved in an auto collision can place a tremendous amount of strain on the body, but many car accident injuries aren’t obvious, like a cut or a bruise. Combined with the body’s release of endorphins and stress hormones like adrenaline following such a traumatic event, soft tissue injuries after a car accident might not immediately surface, and your injuries may be far worse than you think. What causes this delay, and what should you do about it?
