Treat Your Muscle Spasms With Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

For some people, muscle spasms are nothing but a small, uncomfortable annoyance. For others, muscle spasms are the worst pain they have ever had to deal with. And then there are the rest, those who experience a mixture of the two. If your spasms are frequent in nature or severe in intensity, come on in to The Joint Chiropractic for relief. No matter where you are on the muscle spasm spectrum, your local chiropractors will be able to help.

What Causes Muscle Spasms

When a muscle involuntarily, uncontrollably, and forcibly contracts, so much that it can't relax, you know there is an underlying problem. But finding that problem can be difficult because there are so many reasons that could be causing your muscle to behave like that. Take a look at just a few of them below.  

  • Injury and nerve damage
  • Repetitive motions or overuse
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Inadequate stretching
  • Poor posture
  • Alignment issues
  • Inflammation
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Medical conditions

Chiropractic Care for Muscle Spasms

It's easy to see that a muscle spasm is generally a sign that something else is going on in the body, and that is why you should visit your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. Your chiropractor will identify the root cause of the problem and target it with gentle, yet precise, adjustments. Here's how regular chiropractic adjustments can help maintain optimal health and function of your muscles.

  • Eases muscle tension and strain
  • Corrects alignment issues and joint dysfunction
  • Minimizes stress and anxiety
  • Improves posture
  • Reduces inflammation

Reducing Your Risk

In addition to the adjustments you will receive, your chiropractor may also offer helpful advice on how to reduce the risk of spasms from occurring in the first place. Try to implement some of their favorite suggestions from their list below into your life as soon as you can.

  • Exercise regularly - Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day and try to strength train a couple of times each week
  • Rest - If your spasms are caused by overuse, take a break and give your muscles time to relax
  • Heat and ice - Alternating between heat, ice, and rest can help relieve the pain and tension associated with muscle spasms
