Common Muscle Injuries
A muscle strain is an injury caused by the tearing of the muscle fibers. Strains occur as a result of excess mechanical stress. They can be mild, moderate, or severe. Areas susceptible to muscle strains include the neck, lower back, hamstring, and shoulder.
Muscle cramps refer to sudden and involuntary muscle contractions. Although they resolve on their own and don't cause any damage, these cramps can cause excruciating pain. Muscle cramps usually occur during exercise.
Muscle soreness often occurs after exercise. They mostly affect people who engage in strenuous physical activities. The soreness mostly affects a person 24 to 72 hours after exercising and disappears after around seven days.
Muscle contusions are also referred to as muscle bruises and happen when a person collides with an object or another person. The collision causes damage to muscles and even bleeding. Muscle contusions are very common in people who play football, hockey, or rugby.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Pain and Recovery After Exercise
Chiropractic care is very effective in providing muscle pain relief. Chiropractors have several options of doing so, according to the specific condition affecting a person. They use techniques such as cold and heat therapy, trigger point therapy, and spinal manipulation. They always start by performing tests to identify the problem and tailor-make a treatment plan. Apart from treating these conditions, a chiropractor can also align the body to prevent future injuries.
Chiropractic care is very safe when conducted by a professional chiropractor. It's also non-invasive and doesn't cause adverse side effects. There is no recovery period following a chiropractic adjustment. Regular adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your mobility, and enhance your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
