Combat Muscle Loss with Chiropractic

Our body is only able to move when it has strong muscles. Most of the body’s weight is made up of the three types of muscle which are the skeletal, smooth and cardiac. All activities such as walking, running and jumping are all driven by the largest single muscle in the body. The largest muscle in the human body is the gluteus maximus which is located in the buttock. The smallest muscle is located inside of the ear and it is called the stapedius. This muscle helps in reducing the vibrations of sounds that are very noisy. Each muscle only has the ability to pull which enables the body to produce a variety of movements. When there are limitations involving force and motion, it is indication that there could be a problem in the musculoskeletal system.

Do You Have Sore Muscles?

Sore muscles most times indicate that the muscles are getting stronger. There is oftentimes pain and discomfort that occurs as the muscles are strengthening. Sometimes, only stretching is needed to ease the muscle pain. Yet, there are times when other treatments are needed as well. Soft-tissue massage is a chiropractic healing technique that is great to prevent muscle spasms from happening. It is also a good way to relax the body relieve a lot of the tension and stress which come from activities that are strenuous. Delaware Injury Care chiropractors have been trained in a variety of healing methods, including post isometric relaxation (PIR), myofascial release therapy, trigger point therapy and more.

Musculoskeletal Disorders

Studies show that the musculoskeletal disorders are the second leading cause of disability in the world. The musculoskeletal disorders that get diagnosed are carpel tunnel, bone fractures, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. All of these disorders can be developed as a person ages. Early prevention methods such as chiropractic evaluation and care are needed. Symptoms of stiff joints, inflammation and acute pain can be treated early on with chiropractic care. There is also a lower risk involved for developing these disorders by getting chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic helps to ensure that each patient is informed about their physical health. Chiropractors do more than just treat the spine. They help each patient develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle for strong muscles.
