Chiropractic Treatment for Muscle Strain

Muscle strains can affect people from all walks of life. While it’s never any fun to deal with, it’s a common issue that can be resolved with attentive and gentle care.

A muscle strain is an irritation of the fibers in the muscles. It can feel like soreness, tension, or inflammation, and may cause limited mobility or a nagging ache that can be quite distracting.

You don’t need to be an athlete to feel the effects of a muscle strain—believe it or not, emotional and physical stress are common causes. If you have a high-stress occupation or lifestyle, you may find you are prone to this type of condition.

The Source of Muscle Strains

It is all about alignment and energy. The nervous system carries the energy that powers and controls how well our muscles work. Misalignments in the joints, especially in the spine, cause energy to flow imbalanced. Imbalanced energy flow results in imbalanced muscle function.

Our muscles work hard and are under a lot of stress. So when they are imbalanced, they are unable to work in a smooth and balanced manner. Over time, this condition causes things to deteriorate and cause muscles to be more susceptible to strains and injuries, as opposed to muscles that are receiving a good flow of energy and are properly aligned and balanced. Dr. Freedman has specialized expertise in evaluating not only your spine and possible misalignments, but the joints in your entire body.

Taking only medications and physical therapy for muscle strain may prevent you from feeling the pain, but these things do not fix the misalignments that are responsible for most cases of muscle strain. In fact, taking drugs or using P.T. without chiropractic care can cause muscle strain to worsen by deferring proper treatment.

What to Expect During Treatment

Dr. Freedman and his staff strive to provide patients with a calm, healing start to their care. The warm, caring staff and amenities provide an atmosphere designed to make each visit a highlight of your day. All adjusting rooms are fully enclosed for complete privacy.

Once you are settled into one of our adjusting rooms, Dr. Freedman has a variety of treatment methods and therapeutic resources he uses to help alleviate your discomfort, including:

  • Full Spine Diversified Adjusting Technique
  • Extremity Adjusting
  • Gonstead Adjusting Technique
  • Upper Cervical Specific Technique (No “twisting or popping of the spine”)
  • Thompson Drop Table Adjusting Technique (No “twisting or popping of the spine”)
  • Instrument Adjusting Technique (No “twisting or popping of the spine”)
  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Custom Made Foot Orthotics, Guaranteed Or Your Money Back
  • Personalized Rehabilitative Exercise Programs

He also pays special attention to your feet. There are 26 bones in the foot, so it’s very easy for one or more of these bones to be displaced and the feet to become misaligned. If the bones of the foot—the foundation of your body—are out of alignment, then your entire body will be misaligned and it cannot achieve optimal function.

Dr. Freedman will check your feet for any alignment problems and adjust them accordingly, as well as the other weight bearing joints, like your knees, hips, and shoulders. In certain instances, the finest custom orthotics can be made to balance the feet, improve alignment, and permit better muscle and joint function at all times. These orthotics come with a money-back patient satisfaction guarantee.
