How Chiropractic Can Help Extend Your Range Of Motion

How Chiropractic Can Help Extend Your Range Of Motion

Chiropractic care can help in managing and alleviating many pains and aches that we experience in our daily lives. In fact, at Healing Hands Chiropractic, we have seen many patients walk into our clinic for various conditions, including lower back pain treatments and knee pain treatments.

However, do you know that chiropractors do more than treat pains and aches? One of the most common issues we have seen is a limited range of motion, which can impact our daily lives adversely.

Discover what the issue is all about and how chiropractic care can boost mobility, preventing unnecessary injuries.

What is the range of motion?

A healthy range of motion is vital for our body to move properly and correctly. A restricted range of motion can lead to discomfort, pain, or difficulty in moving certain parts of our body the way we used to.

The range of motion of a specific body part or joint is usually measured in degrees and measures the movement in that area. Range of motion refers to our degree of flexibility and determines our ability to move certain parts of our body without any discomfort or pain.

Our range of motion can be severely inhibited by past medical conditions, trauma, or injury. For example, when individuals have experienced an accident, injuring their shoulder, neck, and back, they may experience soreness, tightness, and even stiffness in those areas.

Such signs make it harder for them to carry on with their usual activities. In some cases, certain compensation patterns develop, leading to the development of severe dysfunction.

Fortunately, chiropractic care can often relieve these conditions before reaching the tipping point, promoting injury prevention down the road.

The chiropractic solution

With chiropractic stretches and manipulations, you can extend your range of motion, regaining original movements and making limited flexibility a thing of the past. More often than not, your inhibited range of motion in your shoulders, neck, or back is caused by a misalignment in your body structure.

Our muscles, joints, and spine are designed to function together in a specific manner. However, poor posture, wear and tear, and injuries can cause our body structure to fall out of alignment, limiting our mobility. Chiropractic manipulations help to put our body back into the right alignment so that it can move the way it was meant to.

Inflamed and tight muscles can also result in an inhibited range of motion. When you strain your muscles, you limit your range of motion. It is made worse as you attempt to use them. Chiropractic stretches help to soften the impacted region by loosening it up, improving blood circulation. Once those tight and stiff muscles disappear, you will experience relief, feeling looser and limber.

In addition to chiropractic stretches and manipulations, your chiropractor will also provide advice on how to mobilize your limited joints through prescribing exercises according to your condition.

Conclusion

You do not have to suffer from a limited range of motion any more than you should. With proper and timely chiropractic care, your pains and aches can be improved and you should have a greater quality of life instead of being hindered by your restricted motion.
