Chiropractic Care for Muscle Tension

Many people assume chiropractors only deal with matters of the spine. While chiropractors do treat spine injuries and ailments, spinal health is not the only focus for chiropractic health practitioners. Our chiropractor treats ailments and injuries throughout the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system is made up of the body's tendons, ligaments, muscle bone, and spinal tissue. If you have any type of muscle injury or pain, our chiropractor will work with you to relieve the symptoms by tackling the root cause. If you live in the Boca Raton area, contact our professional staff at Boca Health & Wellness Center for chiropractic care and muscle tension relief.

What Is Muscle Tension, and How Does It Occur? 

Muscle tension is sometimes referred to as muscle stiffness. The symptoms of muscle tension are extensive. However, the primary symptom is tightness in the muscles, making it hard to move and causing pain and discomfort in the afflicted area.

Muscle tension typically occurs after an exercise or sprain. The immediate systems may be sharp pain, swelling, redness, or other signs of inflammation. Severe muscle tension will not easily go away on its own and should be cared for by our professional staff. Neglecting to treat muscle tension can lead to long-term pain.

Chiropractic Care for Muscle Tension 

If you are experiencing pain from muscle tension, seeking help from our chiropractor can help you restore your body and relieve pain without painkillers or invasive procedures. Our chiropractor uses non-invasive methods to restore the body to its natural and proper alignment completely.

Our chiropractor may have to use several treatments to relieve muscle tension. The type of treatment used depends on the severity of your muscle injury. We often use chiropractic massage therapy for patients suffering from muscle tension. Chiropractic massage is a specialized treatment meant to treat muscle or tissue injuries in different parts of the body.
