I was referred into Dr. Saltman by a co-worker. I had been experiencing numbness and tingling down my right arm almost daily for about 4 years. The symptoms were worse when at work sitting at my desk working on a computer. I had already seen a physical therapist, tried acupuncture, and had tried yoga and other stretching exercises at home but none of them helped. Dr. Saltman found one muscle called the infraspinatus that he told me is one of the rotator cuff muscles, it was very tender when he palpated it. He told me there was a trigger point in the muscle meaning it had accumulated lactic acid and was causing the referred pain down my arm. After about 8 treatments in which he used soft tissue manipulation on the muscle and spinal manipulation to my neck and upper back my symptoms of 4 years were gone! I have more energy at the end of the day, I didn't realize how the pain was draining me each day!!
