Effective treatment for general muscle aches

There are many causes of general muscle aches

General muscle ache can be caused by a variety of factors, including physical overuse and stress. When muscles are overused, such as during a particularly strenuous workout session or laborious task, they can become sore and tender to the touch. Additionally, stress can cause the muscles to tense up in a non-productive manner necessitating rest to release the tension. Mental stress or emotional fatigue may also trigger an increase in hormones that can cause widespread increased muscle tension. Similarly, simultaneous strain in multiple muscle groups has been shown to lead to pain and stiffness. Treating general muscle ache requires recognizing the root cause and then implementing appropriate solutions, such as resting the exhausted or strained muscles or engaging in relaxation techniques.

General muscle aches can range from a dull, annoying discomfort to an excruciating amount of pain and stiffness. Muscle aches and pains can manifest due to different types of muscular issues, such as over-exertion or injury. To provide relief, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and massage therapists can be consulted for treatments specific to your individual needs. Manual manipulation of the affected area helps reduce general muscle aches through relieving tension in the area. In addition, patient education plays an important role in helping understand how to manage everyday activities without causing further harm or damage to the nerves and muscles in the affected areas.

There are multiple physical symptoms that can accompany general muscle ache, and most of them vary by severity. Perhaps the most common symptom is a dull, almost constant pain in the affected area, which may be exacerbated after physical activity. Additionally, swollen joints, restricted motion range in the shoulder or hip area, and outright stiffness in muscles can all indicate the presence of a muscle ache. Occasional swelling and tenderness to the touch can also be associated with general muscle aches and pains. If you find yourself experiencing any combination of these issues, it is important to speak with your doctor promptly for diagnosis and treatment.

For a general muscle ache, chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments are common solutions. Chiropractors provide care for musculoskeletal problems and injuries, such as subluxations of joints and nerve impingements that can lead to pain in muscles. Physiotherapy uses exercises, stretches and targeted treatment of aches and pains to reduce strain on the body’s muscles, bones and joints. In addition to chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments, massage therapy provides deep tissue manipulation that stimulates circulation in the affected area to relieve pain. With successful treatment from chiropractor, physio or massage therapist; general muscle aches can find their way out of your life.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
