Chiropractic Care Provides Sore Muscle Relief in Anchorage, AK
Spring is finally here and many of our patients are becoming active outdoors with sports and projects around the house. While this kind of activity is good for the health, it can also result in tight muscles and pain. Knowing how to relieve muscle pain can improve your quality of life and help you become more active this spring.
Methods for Relieving Muscle Pain
At True Life Chiropractic, we recommend the following methods to treat muscle soreness:
- Heat and ice. Ice can be used to reduce inflammation if the body is injured, while applying heat to the affected area can loosen the muscles and reduce tightness.
- Light workouts. Engaging in light workouts between more intense physical activity can help your body adjust to hard work and play.
- Stretching. Stretching your muscles before and after a workout can loosen your muscles, thus preventing soreness.
- Chiropractic care. Chiropractors use a variety of methods to relieve patients of their sore muscles. Spinal adjustments, deep tissue massage, therapeutic stretches and chiropractor-recommended exercise can all help prevent the pain and muscle tightness that results from physical activity. In addition, many chiropractors also help their patients by giving lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling that can make increased physical activity easier to endure.
