How Does Muscle Manipulation Work?
Chiropractors, osteopathic doctors, and physical therapists are certified professionals with the ability to manipulate muscles and soft tissues to manage and alleviate pain. Through the treatment, either done by hand or with tools, our medical professionals can improve a patient’s range of motion.
Muscle manipulation can be either osteopathic or chiropractic. Both variations are effective in treating:
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Sports-related injuries
The treatment is safe, with any resulting soreness typically subsiding within two days.
Chiropractic adjustment and spinal manipulations are ideal treatments for lower back and neck pain. Our professionals realign joints using low- and high-velocity adjustments. Low-velocity adjustments approach treatment by slowly manipulating your muscles with stretching, pulling, or pushing. High-velocity adjustments involve firm pressure and precise, quick thrusts to increase mobility. The practitioner will usually move the joint through its range of motion.
Osteopathic manipulation is effective in treating musculoskeletal disorders and easing pain in the body. It typically utilizes a few key techniques, including:
- Counter-strain, which can treat muscle spasms and pain
- Muscle energy, which addresses pain by moving against a force applied by our doctors
- Soft tissue, which stretches the muscles near the spine
- Thrust, which can improve a joint’s motion
Though highly effective for some patients, it is not an ideal treatment for those with bone cancer, osteoporosis, or who have had a spinal fusion. Our team of medical professionals will identify whether you are an ideal candidate for treatment.
