Believe it or not, being able to experience pain is a good thing. It’s how your body alerts you that something is wrong and needs to be fixed. However, sometimes pain seems to come out of nowhere and lingers for an undetermined amount of time. Sometimes when this occurs, it may be the result of our lifestyle and is our body’s way of telling us to alter those habits because those habits are not good for our health. Pain is a natural and beneficial occurrence of life, but it doesn’t need to be choric, constant, and never-ending. The best way to deal with chronic pain is holistically through proper body posture, regular exercise, and healing hands from the chiropractic team at Total Wellness Solutions in Sandy Spring Ga.
There is an extremely long list of obscure conditions that range from injury to illness that can contribute to tight and stiff muscles; however, in a majority of cases people experience muscle pain and discomfort for many of the same reasons. One of the most common causes of chronic muscle pain is from living a sedentary lifestyle. Working jobs that require long periods of inactivity can weaken the muscles and make them more susceptible to injury. If you work a job that doesn’t require a lot of movement, it is important to take frequent stretch breaks and schedule time throughout your week to work out. If muscle discomfort is reduced by working out and stretching, then the pain is likely due to lifestyle choices. When adding exercise to your routine, especially after long periods of inactivity, it is important to go slow so as to not risk serious injury.
Life is full of all types of stressors that present themselves in the form of slips, falls, repetitive activities (sitting too long, incorrect posture, etc.) and impact us in different ways. One very common way our body absorbs stress is at the spine in the form of subluxations. Subluxations are misalignments in the spinal cord that shift the vertebrae away from their optimal positions. These shifts can compress the nerves, resulting in reduced neural activity, a burdened communication network, and chronic pain. Subluxations are a weak point in the spine but are also extremely common and simple to relieve. Regular chiropractic care can adjust them as soon as they form. However, leaving them untreated creates a source of constant pain and an area susceptible to injury.
Soft Tissue Manipulation
Soft tissue manipulation can help improve blood flow and circulation to tight muscle groups with restricted movement. The circulation of fresh blood pulls much-needed oxygen to the area to help the healing process. The goal of soft tissue manipulation is to bring movement to the muscles, reduce stiffness, and benefit the muscles overall health. One very popular form of soft tissue manipulation is massage therapy. A skilled massage therapist can reduce muscle pain and tension, and help you live a more pain-free lifestyle.
Chiropractic adjustments are done by trained professionals who use manual manipulations to target specific areas of the spine in an attempt to relieve pressure off the neural pathways. This relieves subluxations and allows easier communication between the nerves. The goal of chiropractic adjustments is to create a better communication network between the brain, spinal cord, and other organs of the body. When the nerves are unburdened, and the body’s communication system is clear, your body is free to perform at a much higher level and you experience less pain and discomfort. The goal of regular chiropractic adjustments is to get the body performing at its most efficient level.
