Trigger points are hyperirritable spots in tight bands of muscles, often felt as knots, which cause discomfort and referred or radiating pain, while restricting movement and causing muscle weakness. Many ailments are associated with trigger points, including tension headaches, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ), and low back pain.
Safely Treat Knee and Back Pain
At Hill Country Physical Medicine, back surgery is not considered a reasonable option, because of the possibility of failed back surgery syndrome. Fortunately, a solution that doesn’t carry the complications and risks of back surgery is the wearing of a knee or spinal brace. Bracing recommendations are offered for a variety of ailments. A knee brace might be prescribed for a patient with an ACL tear, or to reduce the pain and disabling effects of osteoarthritis. A spinal brace can be used to reduce movement, provide extra support, keep the spine in a fixed position, and even treat particular types of spinal deformity. Spinal bracing can be used to treat a chronic disease or condition such as arthritis or an injury, such as whiplash. It can also promote proper and safe healing after an accident or surgery, by providing back support.

Effective Back Pain Relief
Your spine plays an important role in your body, housing nerves that transmit information to and from the brain. When the spinal column or discs experience injury or other health conditions, the end result is intense pain—sometimes in other parts of the body (such as the arms and legs). To treat the underlying condition responsible for your discomfort, our healthcare specialist will perform a complete evaluation and diagnostic assessment to identify your particular medical issue. We treat a number of common spine and disc concerns, including:
herniated or bulging discs, disc degeneration, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, sciatica, arthritis, sprains, fractured vertebrae and scoliosis
Also known as disc decompression, spinal decompression is a non-invasive, drug-free practice that is known to be effective in the management of chronic back pain. Our highly trained staff uses a specialized table for this therapy, providing gently motorized traction as the patient lies on it, to stretch and realign the spine. During this treatment, the doctor is able to isolate the damaged area of the spine, in order to provide precise relief for disc herniation or bulging discs. We offer disc decompression, as it is extremely effective in allowing delivery of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to the disc, promoting healing and relieving pain.
