Muscle Tightness & Tension

Muscle tightness and tension can become very painful and debilitating. It may be difficult to perform your everyday activity when dealing with muscle pain. A wide variety of factors can lead to muscle pain. At Maple Grove Family Chiropractic in Maple Grove, MN, our experts diagnose and treat muscle tightness and tension, along with a variety of other conditions. We offer natural treatment techniques.


Causes of Muscle Tightness

Stress is one of the most common causes of muscle tension. This tension is often found in the shoulders, neck, and back. However, muscles in any area of the body can become tight. Other causes of muscle tension include injuries, overuse, improper exercising, accidents, and more.

If muscle tightness is not properly treated, it likely will not go away on its own. It can also lead to other health complications. Tight muscles can lead to pulled muscles, muscle strains, knots, and other issues. If you are experiencing persistent symptoms, visit our chiropractor for treatment as soon as possible.

How We Can Help

When you visit our chiropractor for muscle pain, we will conduct a physical exam to determine where your pain is coming from. We look for any underlying issues to get to the root cause of your pain. After a diagnosis, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you. We may use a variety of chiropractic care techniques.

One of the most common techniques we use is chiropractic adjustments. When the spine is misaligned, it can cause pain in many areas of the body, including the muscles. By manipulating and realigning the spine, we can relieve pressure and tension in the back and ensure that no nerves are being pressed on.

We also offer massage therapy for muscle pain. This method relieves inflammation, improves blood flow, and promotes natural healing in the body. Our experts can find areas of tension or knots in the muscles and massage them out.

Our chiropractor might also suggest electrical stimulation. This sends pulses throughout the body and works to relax your muscles and stop spasms. It will alleviate pain and improve your range of motion.

We can also give you stretching and strengthening exercises. These methods will help your recovery process by strengthening the muscles and connective tissues, keeping them loose, and restoring them to the optimal range of motion. You can often perform these exercises in the comfort of your own home. These exercises will also help to prevent future injuries and pain.

  • "I visited Dr. Laura after having tension headaches for several months. After the first adjustment, I had instant relief! I have since visited her practice for acupuncture and had the best massage I've ever experienced from Sarah. Dr. Laura is exceptionally knowledgeable in her field, and I highly recommend her!"

  • "Dr. Laura Zaker has helped me realize that the spine is movable. I'm in my early sixties and was skeptical that my persistent back pain could be addressed. After years of sharp pain, within two months, I am amazed that I no longer have the pain. The muscles in my back and neck are no longer feeling strained. I am writing this since I was fortunate to have received this unexpected physical improvement; I am a fan of Dr. Laura Zaker."
