What can be the cause?
Muscle pain can occur due to a sudden fall or slip, being overworked, poor stretching, fatigue. Dehydration, poor circulation or poor mechanics also affect the muscles ability to contract and lengthen properly.
What do you feel?
Symptoms include achiness, tightness or spontaneous spasms. Over time, if left untreated, it can lead to a tightening of the tendon which attaches the muscle to the bone, resulting in a tendinopathy. Tendinopathies are most commonly experienced in the hamstrings, quads or achilles which “feels like it’s going to go”. They can also occur in the biceps or forearm muscles resulting in tennis/golfers elbow.
What to do?
If you are suffering from muscle soreness, it is worth having a consult with us to establish its cause. If your pain is beyond the scope of Chiropractic or Osteopathy, you will be referred and advised accordingly for the appropriate therapy/investigations.
If it is within our scope, we can work with you to help restore your body to its natural mechanics and relieve the tightness enabling the body to self-heal and regulate; as well as discuss the best way to prevent re-occurrence.
What would it be like to be pain free, functioning and enjoying ‘normal’ again?
