Chiropractic Care for Muscle Aches and Pains

Muscle aches and pains can be difficult symptoms to manage. If you’re dealing with muscle aches, it may be time to consider chiropractic care. Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders and the effects of these disorders on general health. Let’s take a look at how chiropractic care can provide treatment for general muscle aches and pains.

Chiropractic Adjustment

The most common form of chiropractic treatment is chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation. This is a manual procedure that involves applying controlled force to your joints in order to restore proper motion or alignment of your spine and other joints in your body. A chiropractor will use their hands to apply pressure on specific areas in order to realign the spine or joint. This helps reduce pain, improve range of motion, reduce inflammation, and increase flexibility.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Chiropractors may also use soft tissue techniques such as massage or trigger point to help treat muscle aches and pains. Massage can help relax tight muscles that are causing pain while trigger point focuses on releasing tension from “knots” in the muscle that causes pain when pressed upon. Both treatments work together to help promote healing by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and decreasing muscle tension throughout the body. 

Rehabilitation Exercises

Another way chiropractors can help treat muscle aches is by recommending rehabilitation exercises designed to strengthen weak muscles and promote overall wellness. Rehabilitation exercises not only target specific muscles but can also be used to improve posture and balance which helps reduce stress on your joints that could be contributing to your pain. Chiropractors may also recommend lifestyle changes such as stretching or strengthening exercises or ergonomic modifications at work in order to further reduce stress on your body which will ultimately reduce pain levels over time. 

Get Good Professional Advice

Chiropractors are highly trained professionals who specialize in treating musculoskeletal issues such as muscle aches and pains without drugs or surgery. If you’re dealing with any type of muscular issue, don’t hesitate—to contact a chiropractor today! With their specialized knowledge and techniques, they can get you back on the road to feeling better quickly so you can get back to doing what you love.
