You may have experienced the aches and pains that muscle tension causes, but do you know what is making your muscles tense in the first place? By understanding the root issues that lead to muscle tension, we can treat them and bring you relief from your pain and discomfort.
Muscle tension describes a condition when the muscles remain contracted for a long period of time without releasing. This dull cramping restricts blood flow, keeps nutrients from reaching tissues and keeps waste from being carried away.
Common causes of muscle tension include:
- Underlying Structural Problems
- Musculoskeletal Injuries
- Spinal Misalignment
Once we have isolated the cause of your tension, we are able to treat it naturally with chiropractic adjustments, lifestyle advice, therapeutic massage, heat therapy and electrical stimulation.
By ignoring the pain, or masking it with pain killers, your symptoms will become progressively worse and will impact your ability to work comfortably and enjoy doing the things you love.
If you are experiencing these warning signs, schedule an appointment with Chiropractic Healing Center right away:
- Tightness in the neck, shoulders, back or abdomen
- Muscles that are tender to the touch
- Frequent headaches
- Undue feels of stress or anxiety
- Muscle spasms
- Pain and soreness
Taking prescription muscle relaxers without treating the source will only mask the problem. Chiropractic care can eliminate your muscle tension and help you achieve total body wellness. Schedule your appointment today.
