5 Muscle Issues That Benefit from Chiropractic Treatment
Muscle issues can range in severity, from a minor nuisance to something that makes it impossible for you to function. One of the most effective treatments for muscle issues is chiropractic treatment. Here is how seeing a chiropractor can help you with a variety of muscle issues:
Rotator cuff issues
The tiny muscles in your shoulder are part of what is known as the rotator cuff. When the bones and tissue in your shoulder are out of alignment, your rotator cuff becomes venerable to damage; in many cases, this damage is caused by the bones pinching or scraping up against soft tissue. With a professional chiropractic treatment series, a rotator cuff can be put back in alignment, alleviating current issues and preventing future ones.
Lower back pain
An estimated 8 in 10 people suffer from lower back pain on a regular basis; this makes it one of the most pandemic muscle issues on the planet. The severity and effects of lower back pain are wide ranging. Not only can lower back pain make it difficult or even impossible to stand or walk, but it can make sitting and lying down extremely painful. In many cases, lower back pain is caused by an improper alignment of the spine and hips; this puts a great deal of stress on your lower back muscles as they try to compensate. This is what causes the soreness to radiate throughout your entire lower back to points well beyond your vertebrae. When you get chiropractic treatment, your spine is put pack into alignment; this reduces the amount of stress placed on your lower back muscles by allowing them to sit the way they are supposed to.
When your body is not properly aligned, your muscles have to bear the brunt of this by working to maintain your body's structural integrity. The difficulties caused by muscle strains are exacerbated when your strained muscles are being forced to work harder than necessary just to keep everything in place. Chiropractic treatment is designed to gently realign your skeleton, so that all of your muscles, including strained ones, are not being overworked.
Improper posture, sleeping the wrong way and other activities that are a part of people's daily routines will cause the neck to contort in awkward ways. When this occurs, the muscles in your neck have to work overtime to keep everything together. This extra stress will cause pain from the top of your shoulders through your neck. Sometimes the pain can even manifest itself as headaches. When your neck is realigned by a chiropractic treatment, your muscles can rest the way that they're supposed to.
The trauma caused by a bulging disc will throw your entire spine out of alignment. Just like with any other alignment issue, this will cause your muscles to strain themselves to hold everything together. A chiropractic treatment will reduce the alignment issues that a bulging disc has caused you. This, in turn, will mitigate your muscle pain.
