Muscle Adjustment Q & A
Why do my muscles need adjustment?
Muscles are constantly flexing and releasing, working together in a variety of ways to help support bones, joints, and organs. When a muscle injury occurs, muscle movement is compromised and the result is usually pain and the loss or reduction of motion. In fact, if one muscle is impaired, its changed movement can affect how surrounding muscles move and function. It can also affect the alignment of bones and decrease the strength and function of connective tissue. Visiting a chiropractor to adjust a muscle can help solve a lot of problems, including symptoms such as pain, decreased range of motion, and even balance issues.
Can muscle adjustment help with chronic headaches?
Absolutely. Tension headaches and migraines are often caused by muscle tension. Once the tension in the muscles of the neck, shoulders, back, or face is released, the muscles relax and the headache is gone. There are a variety of treatments for soft tissue therapy that help reduce headaches and even migraines.
Is muscle release therapy painful?
Usually, muscle release therapy is not significantly painful. If you are experiencing significant pain because of muscle issues, the process for correcting that involves a series of treatments–each with the goal of decreasing your pain. Other types of treatments may also help reduce pain so that muscle adjustment can be completed quickly. These can include acupressure, Kinesio Taping, heat treatment, and even trigger point treatments. At Gateway Chiropractic, the goal is always to keep you pain-free. Dr. Sas works to achieve that goal on two levels. The first level is immediate relief from pain and the second level is the prolonged release from pain through preventative care. Dr. Sas not only wants you to have pain relief today but throughout the rest of your life, so that the quality of your life is improved. Dr. Sas works to improve holistic health and wellbeing by offering comprehensive care and by approaching symptoms from a whole-patient perspective.
Words From Happy Gateway Chiropractic Patients
I have seen many chiropractors since college in effort to fix a few different issues, and Dr Sas is the ONLY one who sat down and created a full treatment plan AND TOLD ME ABOUT IT. Personally, I like to know what’s going on when a Dr is treating me, and he has always been very transparent in my care plan. After 6 years I can finally cross my legs sitting down again, and it keeps getting better.
I had A LOT of irrational anxiety about getting chiropractic work done. But Dr. Sas was very down-to-earth and didn’t feed me any b.s. He understood my anxiety, but made sure that I understood he was in this with me and for me. After 4 months, he is now one of my most favorite humans and I look forward to our visits. Oh, and I guess it’s probably important to note that his treatments are actually helping me. So, there’s that.
Dr Sas is amazing!! I went from having back pain daily to being symptom free after about a month in his care. I have seen other chiropractors before and I can’t say enough about how great Dr Sas is compared to the competition. His office staff is incredibly nice and knows everyone by name. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone and everyone to go see Dr Sas at Gateway Chiropractic!
