Is Chiropractic Care a Solution for Muscle Cramps?
Many of us know that feeling when we are going along, feeling just fine, and all of the sudden, we stop in pain as a muscle cramp comes on in full force. That split-second instance of muscle cramp pain can bring us screeching to a halt. If you know this feeling, then you are not alone. Approximately 95% of people will experience muscle cramping in their lives, but it doesn’t have to slow you down. With the help of a Rochester Hills chiropractor, you can find relief from frustrating and painful muscle cramps.
Managing Muscle Cramping
What do you do when the muscle cramps hit? Some people may need to drink more water as this can be one reason for muscle cramping. Others might be suffering from a vitamin deficiency. While it can be simple to apply heat or ice or even reach for over-the-counter treatment options such as topical cream, these are not long-term, permanent solutions to get rid of muscle cramps once and for all. Chronic muscle cramping may require a visit to a doctor to seek more intensive options, or you may even want to consider chiropractic care as an option for ending muscle cramping. Dr. Thomas Madigan and Dr. Brendan Shanahan of Vitality Precision Chiropractic can help!
What Is Causing My Muscle Cramping?
At the root of chronic muscle cramps may lie an even larger issue. When stretching, resting, hydrating, and all the other methods for relieving muscle cramps fail, it’s time to take a look elsewhere. What you may not realize is that the spine plays a crucial role in the overall function of the body. Any vertebrae that are out of place, known as spinal misalignments, can cause dysfunction. Spinal misalignments can lead to muscle tightness or even nerve interference that is at the root of chronic muscle cramping pain.
What Can I Do for Muscle Cramps?
Regular chiropractic care from a Rochester Hills chiropractor may be just what you need. Gentle spinal adjustments will restore proper alignment of the spine and will also restore nerve communication. This then will relieve muscle tightness. All of these things can contribute to and be at the core of muscle cramps. Not only does proper spinal alignment relieve muscle cramping, but it also has numerous other benefits such as improved blood flow, increased muscle movement, and improved musculoskeletal function, all of which help to diminish instances of muscle cramping so that your body can feel at its very best.
