and we tend to hold our bodies in tense, misaligned positions. Here’s what could be happening in your body when you sit or stand with improper alignment:
- Your intestines (viscera) can be compressed into a smaller space and become less efficient.
- Your circulation may be decreased due to reduced blood flow.
- Your chest muscles can tighten inward and cause pain in your neck, shoulder, and back.
- You may have weakened arches in your feet, causing overpronation, which can lead to other issues in your musculoskeletal system.
- Your hip flexors can tighten and cause lower back pain.
- Your neck muscles can tighten and cause pain.
- All of these issues can cause a chain reaction of other events in your body.
- Reduced range of motion
Muscle pain can be relieved by locating and treating trigger points. Trigger points are small knots that form in the myofascial tissue that covers your muscles, and they can cause high levels of pain. Our physiatrists (physicians specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation) will work with you to identify any muscle injuries and start healing your pain.
- Spinal decompression is a noninvasive, effective treatment that allows your spinal discs to heal naturally.
- The damage to your spinal disc heals without surgical intervention, which can cause further trauma and pain and involve huge expenses and long recovery times.
- Rather than removing parts of the spine to create space for the discs to heal, spinal decompression uses a negative intradiscal pressure.
- Our medical professionals have the experience and training to offer you this innovative method of treating back and neck pain.
