Muscle Pain Treatment - Muscle Spasms


Muscle Pain Treatment and Chiropractic Care

Muscle pain (myofascial pain or fasciitis) is a chronic or abnormal shortening of the muscle tissue and fascia of the involved area. There are 600+ muscles in the human body; therefore, the muscle pain problem may develop in any area of the body. Muscle pain can result from a number of different cause; namely, chronic irritations from the nerves, repeated overuse of the involved area and stress or overstretching. Each of these conditions can cause muscle pain, inflammation and stiffness which make daily activities painful.

Chiropractic care involves correcting vertebral subluxations (bones out of position) using the spinal adjustment. The adjustment removes severe stress from the spine as well as related nerve and other tissues including the muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and other soft tissues. Muscle pain and muscle spasms are a direct result of stress on the body.

“My upper back muscles have been in and out of spasm mode after my car accident. The only relief came when Dr. Dow worked on my neck and the muscle pain stopped.” Craig H. - Huntington Station, NY

Muscle Spasm Pain - Treatment Relief

A muscle spasm (muscle cramp) is often accompanied by a sudden burst of pain; however, it is usually harmless and stops after a few minutes. Muscle spasms are known by the burst of energy that results in an involuntary contraction of the muscle. A muscle spasm may lead to strains or tears of tendons and ligaments, if the force of the muscle spasm exceeds the tensile strength of the underlying connective tissues. Chiropractic treatment and massage therapy are helpful in reducing the pain emanating from muscle spasms.

Trigger Point Treatment - Pain Relief

Trigger points can be identified by pain that results when pressure is applied to an area of a person's body. In the diagnosis of myofascial pain syndrome, four types of trigger points can be distinguished:

Active Trigger Point: an area of extreme tenderness that usually lies within the skeletal muscle and which is associated with a local or regional pain.
Latent Trigger Point: an inactive area that has potential to act like a trigger point.
Secondary Trigger Point: a highly irritable spot in a muscle that can become active due to a trigger point and muscular overload in another muscle.
Satellite Myofascial Point: a highly irritable spot in a muscle that becomes inactive because the muscle is in the region of another trigger pain.
