Chiropractic Adjustments Relax Tense Muscles

Chiropractic Adjustments Relax Tense Muscles

Most of us know the discomfort of tense, “knotted” muscles.  But you may not know that you don’t have to live with this pain.  Dr. Smith wants you to know how chiropractic can help.

Tight muscles come about by a variety of avenues.  While acute cases of muscle soreness may result from a recent injury, long-term trigger points evolve from inadequate healing of a past injury, repetitive activities, desk or computer work, sports, emotional stress, lack of sleep and dehydration.

Muscle tension is also nearly always tied with poor posture and a misaligned spine.

Chiropractic is a unique approach to healing because doctors of chiropractic know that the body functions as a whole rather than a set of isolated parts.  When caring for patients with muscle pain, doctors of chiropractic don’t just focus on the site of pain.  Rather, chiropractors search for the underlying cause of discomfort.  In the case of muscle pain, that cause often resides in the spine in the form of vertebral subluxations.
