Chiropractic Care for Golf Related Pain from a Chiropractor in Norwalk CT
Dec 11, 2017

If you are new to golf or an old pro, you can experience back pain associated with your golf swing. Those new to the sport or who haven't played in a while tend to overdo it. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the excruciating pain of your golf injury.

Some Causes of Golf-related Back Injuries

Poor technique can pull muscles and even damage your spine. If you already have a condition that prevents any of the vertebrae in your back from flexing, rotating or moving freely, you may need to work out a modified golf swing that avoid further damage. If you decide to just go for it all on a long drive and you already have back issues, you could do serious and even permanent damage to your spinal cord. To decrease the likelihood of pain and pinched nerves, consult with your chiropractor regarding any limitations you may need to address prior to your first tee off.

Warm Up Properly

There are a few warmup exercises that can help loosen up your muscles to help prevent injury. Run in place or do some jumping jacks until your face feels hot and you begin to sweat. To work on the core, try plank to prepare for your game. Walking lunges get the muscles moving in your legs and buttocks. Finally, rotate your spine without moving your hips. You can do most of this in the locker room, out of sight of your golf buddies.

Try Making a Chiropractic Appointment Before Your Golf Game

Sometimes, it's better to think ahead. Preventing injury starts with careful planning, so make an appointment with your chiropractor before the game. This visit can help increase your range of motion and provides valuable insight into how your swing impacts your back. Case in point, Tiger Woods has a personal chiropractor to help him get and stay limber during the pro season.

Do you know if your swing could injure your back? Let your chiropractor guide you through the body mechanics so that you can play at your top level without hurting your back. If possible, bring your golf club when you come for a chiropractic consultation. It can help the staff to understand you swing and habits to a better outcome.

Spinal Adjustments

If you already hurt your back, your chiropractor can help your body begin to head by adjusting your spine. There are other treatments available that can help you heal without the use of surgery or medication. Partner with your chiropractor to improve your swing without hurting your back.

How A Chiropractor Can Help Relieve Muscle Spasms with a Chiropractor in Norwalk CT
Dec 11, 2017

Muscle spasms, especially chronic spasms, detract from the quality of life of many individuals. They are painful and, if truly chronic, interrupt the daily life of patients in a negative way.

Muscle spasms have several different causes. Chiropractors have many ways to begin to start the healing process and help you to find relief.

Muscle Spasms Causes

There are many factors, which contribute to the development of muscle spasms or cramps. They include inappropriate stretching, vitamin deficiencies, aggravated nerves, dehydration, poor stretching techniques and fatigue, among others. 

Muscle Cramp Symptoms

A muscle spasm is difficult to miss. The muscle will suddenly contract causing extreme pain in the area of the spasm, overwhelming discomfort and the ability to visibly see how your muscle has tightened unwillingly. An individual experiencing a muscle spasm has no ability to release the painful condition.

Theoretically, a muscle spasm can happen to any muscle, but muscle spasms happen most frequently with the thigh muscle, the calf, the foot or the back.

As a general rule, muscle spasms subside in a short amount of time and release on their own. When the muscle cramps chronically or the spasms last for a long time, it is time to discuss your spasm complications with a chiropractor.

How A Chiropractor can Help

Routine spinal adjustments (and other chiropractic techniques) offer relief and a way in which to prevent future muscle spasms. The treatments are typically hands-on techniques that are used to re-align the body. This ultimately removes pressure from the nerves that cause the discomfort and the spasm.  These adjustments modify the number and severity of the nerve signals your brain receives.

Chiropractors often suggest the use of the massage therapy in conjunction with their chiropractic care. Massage therapy reduces inflammations and relaxes the muscles prone to spasm. It also is great for one's overall spirit.

It is unusual to witness someone experiencing a significant amount of spasms without needing to be analyzed by a professional chiropractor. Remember, it is not normal to experience muscle spasms frequently.

Chiropractic Care for Bursitis from a Chiropractor in Norwalk CT
Oct 29, 2017

Bursitis occurs when the bursae (tiny sacs of fluid that cushion the joints) become inflamed.  Bursae prevent excessive friction between muscles and bones.  Rheumatic conditions, repetitive motions, injuries, and the aging process can cause these protective elements to become compressed, resulting in pain.  Bursitis frequently develops in the knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, heels, and ankles, but it can appear in other areas of the body, too.  Fortunately, chiropractic can alleviate the pain and swelling associated with the condition.

If inflammation is recurrent or the patient has been experiencing it for a long time, it can be detected through X-rays.  When bursitis is in its early stages, a chiropractor may use ultrasound to reduce the swelling.  This modality may be paired with massage therapy.

Once the condition is stabilized, joint manipulations may be the next step in a patient's chiropractic care plan.  While many people associate manipulations with the spine, they can be applied to the extremities as well.  Adjusting the joints loosens stiff soft tissues, improves nervous system functioning, and relieves pressure on the bursae.

Physiotherapy strengthens affected musculoskeletal structures, making them less susceptible to injury.  Damaged soft tissues tend not to be used because of the pain, leading to muscle atrophy.  To augment the benefits of therapeutic manipulations, patients are usually given exercises to do at home between appointments.  Movement boosts circulation, delivering nutrients to soft tissues while removing waste.  Physical therapy not only builds stamina, but also increases flexibility and range of motion.  Exercise routines are customized to meet the unique needs of each patient.

In some instances, a chiropractor may suggest dietary modifications or supplementation to improve joint health.  Patients can undergo testing to see if they are lacking in vital nutrients.  Getting adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals can accelerate recovery and help patients maintain better overall health.
