tension muscle

Your Chi­ro­prac­tor may use a num­ber of tech­niques to treat your aches and pains includ­ing Ten­sion, Mus­cle Spasms and Cramp. Some­times the mus­cle spasms asso­ci­ated with, for exam­ple, back and neck pain require spinal manip­u­la­tion, deep tis­sue mas­sage or trig­ger point ther­apy to help reduce the lim­ited mobil­ity you may be experiencing.

On other occa­sions the ten­sion asso­ci­ated with phys­i­cal or emo­tional stress may have an influ­ence on your con­di­tion. Your Chi­ro­prac­tor will advise you on ways to reduce your mus­cle ten­sion by way of improv­ing your pos­ture, ergonom­ics and exer­cise rou­tine. Where appro­pri­ate and with your per­mis­sion, your Chi­ro­prac­tor will liaise with other health pro­fes­sion­als in the man­age­ment of more gen­er­alised emo­tional tension.
