One of the primary treatments for joint pain is chiropractic care. By evaluating the joint position and correcting joints that are not aligned they can help to reduce or alleviate pain. Sometimes the joint is not the only issue, and they offer soft tissue treatment that helps reduce trigger points or muscle groups that stick together. Muscles that do not slide or move correctly can pull joints out of alignment. In addition to correcting muscle knots, Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport offers corrective rehab which helps patients build stronger muscles that help to support the joints. By correcting posture issues, too, joints have less stress. By treating the entire problem, the Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport help people become pain-free, stronger, and more mobile.
Trigger points are small knots that occur when two sets of muscle become bound together. Muscles can also adhere to the skin. When this happens, it prevents the freedom of movement, and our body begins to compensate. That compensation can lead to joint problems and symptoms of pain. Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport offers soft tissue therapy that helps locate and remove trigger points. The service is a little different from massage, and it is an excellent tool for ensuring that muscles move as designed.
