Musculoskeletal pain can be caused by a number of reasons. A lot of people hurt their back while trying to lift heavy objects, while a number of other people suffer from musculoskeletal disorders as they grow old and their bones become more brittle for which they need treatment like Mechanical Motion Therapy. Prolonged immobilization, especially among patients of debilitating diseases that force them to be bedridden, can also cause the joints to stiffen, causing pain.

In any case, every day wear and tear due to daily activities can lead to irreparable damage of the muscle tissue. Apart from immense pain, other symptoms of musculoskeletal pain include fatigue and lack of sleep due to tiredness.  Musculoskeletal pain can be treated through a variety of ways:

  • Injections with anesthesia or other anti-inflammatory medicines in or around the site of pain
  • Exercise that includes stretching of muscles
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Acupressure and acupuncture
  • Chiropractic Care

So far, it is generally agreed upon that chiropractic care, that uses spinal manipulation, is the best and safest way to relieve pain that forgoes the patient’s threshold of pain. Chiropractic care restores mobility to patients without surgery or non-invasive treatments. Not only does chiropractic care relieve tension of the muscles, tissues and joints that cause pain in the limbs, but it is also known as an effective treatment to tackle headaches, recurrent or otherwise, in people especially prone to migraines. Other benefits of chiropractic care are that it is constantly being upgraded through research and practice. For example, Mechanical Motion Therapy or MMT has been established as a new and revolutionary treatment method that has garnered support from chiropractors all over the world. Its legitimacy has been strengthened by patient feedback.
