If you are dealing with muscle spasms, scheduling a visit to Kentucky Pain Institute and Spurlock Chiropractic Centre in Morehead, Kentucky is an excellent step toward relief from this challenging pain. There are many skeletal issues that can trigger a muscle spasm and receiving an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your pain is essential to finding a muscle spasm treatment.

As a patient, you do not have to decide which type of provider you need to see. Because we have both medical and chiropractic providers on staff at Kentucky Pain Institute and Spurlock Chiropractic Centre, you will receive a diagnosis and the most effective treatment in our facility. Rather than wonder which type of treatment will work for you, we will do that analysis for you and provide treatment onsite.
It is nearly impossible to function when experiencing a muscle spasm. Its breathtaking pain blocks out your ability to think about much of anything other than how much pain you are in. At Kentucky Pain Institute and Spurlock Chiropractic Centre, it is our goal to figure out what is causing your muscle spasm and treat it so that you can return to your routine activities of daily living. Muscle spasms, occurring when a skeletal muscle contracts and does not relax, are forceful and involuntary. A spasm can occur when a muscle is overused or overstretched. Chronic leg and neck pain can lead to recurrent muscle spasms. Some muscle spasms are a result of arthritic changes in the spine.
Our providers are trained to perform a full assessment of your muscle spasm in order to confirm the source of your pain, which then determines the most appropriate treatment for your muscle spasms. There are a number of injections that can bring rapid relief to our patients. Often a knot has developed in the muscle that is spasming, causing a trigger point. A trigger point injection will take only a few minutes to complete. The injected fluid is an anesthetic and it causes the trigger point to relax. If the trigger point doesn’t fully relax, you may receive another injection. The ability of trigger point injections to directly target the source of muscle pain makes this treatment of muscle spasms the most suitable treatment option for most muscle spasms.
