Many people assume chiropractors only deal with spinal issues. While our chiropractors can treat spine injuries and ailments, we also help patients suffering from muscle tension. Muscle tension is hard to live with. It can impact everything from how well you sleep to how productive you can be at work. Fortunately, chiropractic care can make a huge difference. If you are experiencing any type of muscle injury or pain, our team at Discover Integrated Health LLC will work with you to relieve the symptoms by tackling the root cause.
Causes of Muscle Tension
The muscles, bones, joints, and ligaments are all part of keeping your spine, back, and neck healthy. When one of these is not functioning properly, it can cause the others to overcompensate or lead to serious pain or discomfort. Often, muscles attempt to make up for an improper function in the rest of the spinal system, leading to tension. For example, if the spine is misaligned, the muscles work harder to help your body working as well as it should. As a result, the muscles end up overworked and tense.
Muscle tension can also come from a variety of other issues, including:
- Sitting at a desk for long periods
- Repetitive activities
- Lack of restful sleep
- Poor posture
Chiropractic Techniques for Muscle Tension Relief
No matter the cause behind the muscle tension, there is a chiropractic treatment that can help. Spinal adjustments or manipulations can help to move the spine back into its proper alignment. When the spine is aligned correctly, the muscles do not have to overcompensate.
Depending on the cause of your muscle tension, our chiropractors might also suggest some changes in your daily life. For example, if the cause is poor posture, we can teach you exercises to help improve posture and tips to ensure you are standing and sitting correctly. Our team can also teach you stress relief techniques and ways to prevent muscle tension from occurring in the future.
