Vida Integrated Health’s Naturopathic Medicine program is the perfect blend of conventional and alternative medicine. Naturopathic physicians are trained to serve as primary care practitioners focusing on the prevention, diagnosis, management, and treatment of acute and chronic health conditions. This unique medicine combines the diagnostic skills of a primary care physician with a philosophy and treatment rooted in the healing power of nature. Here, the goal is not only to diagnose diseases, but also find and treat the underlying causes.

Trigger Point Injections
Trigger points are discrete, focal, hyperirritable spots located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. They produce pain locally and in a referred pattern and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders. Trigger points may also manifest as tension headache, tinnitus, temporomandibular joint pain, decreased range of motion in the legs, and low back pain. Various modalities, such as injection therapy, are used to inactivate trigger points. This has been shown to be one of the most effective treatment modalities to inactivate trigger points and provide prompt relief of symptoms.
