How Our Chiropractor Can Relieve Muscle Tension

muscle tension

To relieve muscle tension, you must ensure that the muscles can move quickly and that there is no nervous system interference. However, most people don't know how to deal with extreme muscle tension. At Multicare Health Clinic, we can help you deal with muscle tension using the following strategies.

Back Discomfort

Many people don’t realize that there are different types of back pain. While our chiropractor can help treat most pain, other pains may require unique treatments. For example, partial dislocations sometimes cause back pain when a vertebra in the spine becomes misaligned and puts pressure on the surrounding nerves. This pressure can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the extremities.

Knee Strain

Knee muscle pain is common, especially among athletes. The knee is a weight-bearing joint, and it’s easy to injure the muscles, tendons, or ligaments around it. There are several types of knee pain, but one of the most common is patellar tendonitis, which is inflammation of the tendon that connects the kneecap to the shinbone. Our chiropractor in SIOUX, IA, can help deal with this pain by realigning the kneecap and relieving pressure on the surrounding muscles and tendons.

Neck Pain

Muscles around the neck can become tense and painful for various reasons, including poor posture, stress, and injuries. This pain can be debilitating and make it difficult to perform everyday tasks. A chiropractor can help alleviate this pain by gently manipulating the spine and neck to release muscle tension. Our chiropractor in SIOUX, IA, will ensure your neck pain is dealt with safely and effectively.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is fundamental in dealing with muscle tension. A physical therapist can help design a program of stretching and exercises to improve flexibility and range of motion. This program will help prevent injuries and relieve muscle pain. A physical therapist can also teach you how to properly use heat and cold therapy to reduce inflammation and pain.
