Hey, it’s Dr. Troy.
Here’s another question related to muscle in the neck or back, whatever.
So, somebody says, “You know Dr. Troy, I was rubbing my friends back and there’s a bulge here I think it’s a muscle spasm. So I rub that and it you know really didn’t go away. Can chiropractic help with that? When you make an adjustment does that create relaxation?”
The answer is yes. When you move the bone off of a nerve and gap the joint you’re naturally going to create a reflex relaxation mechanism in the muscle. So if there’s scar tissue, yeah you get in there and work on that, you stretch the muscle. But if there’s joint misalignment that muscle is going to spasm to protect that joint dysfunction.
So you can rub that all you want but if the dysfunction is still there that muscle is still gonna be tender. You may release a little bit but with the adjustment that helps the joint restore function, the brain can tell the muscle it’s ok to relax now everything’s good, all as well.
So that’s why these things work great together, to help reduce the muscle spasm and tension. Ultimately get the joint functioning maximally which is what chiropractic is all about, naturally.
