Whether you need relief from sore muscles due to a tough workout or long hours at the office, chiropractic treatments can benefit you.

The Chiropractic Approach

For decades, chiropractic was often regarded as an alternative approach to healthcare without much popularity. More recently, chiropractors are becoming more mainstream and are the third-largest group of healthcare providers, right after physicians and dentists.

The chiropractic approach focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It addresses the hard tissues in the body including the spine and joints. As chiropractors, we opt for a natural approach to treating the underlying issues in the body, not just treating the symptoms. This means a hands-on, non-invasive, non-addictive form of therapy that includes examination, diagnosis, and treatment. Our years of experience and training give us the knowledge to recommend rehabilitative and therapeutic exercises in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments that can provide muscle pain relief, along with discomfort in the joints.

Chiropractic Techniques

Most commonly, chiropractors use treatments called spinal manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. We will manually apply controlled force to the joints that have become restricted in their range of motion to restore joint mobility. Chiropractic adjustments also remove subluxations and misalignments in the spine. When these subluxations are removed, the central nervous system is better able to function, improving communication between the brain and the body. When that communication is restored, the body can heal itself more efficiently, meaning muscle soreness from overuse injuries and will feel better faster.
