Our daily lifestyles do not favor our bodies. Due to the thousands of hours per year that we spend in front of technology to earn our livings and have a social life, our bodies have undergone a multitude of changes. The first problem to develop is of course in our lower backs and in our postures. If you’ve ever sat in a chair for multiple hours in a stretch working with computers, you would make your muscles tense and with multiple waves of abuse even develop into chronic pain and inflammations.
This is where the Chiropractor comes in. These are medical professionals who specialize in correcting your posture and dealing with neuromuscular disorders. These are medical professionals who would work with your muscles to release the tension and free your body up so, that you can function optimally for a long time. One of the new methods that have been developed is that of ART. A certified Active Release Technique (ART) chiropractor evaluates your muscle structure and the stresses that might be exuberating your pain and releases it through an active series of stretches. Here are a few more reasons why you see a chiropractor to improve your physical health.
- They can assess your physical condition
Chiropractors are medical professionals. They will check your body to find out the parts which are more tense and are under immense pressure. The entire bodily evaluation is performed by checking out your muscles and the places where your locomotion and posture is affected. This is why chiropractor sessions are tailored individually. The process tests your movements and the problems that you have with how you stand and how you carry yourself. Long-term posture problems can create chronic pain and other issues. Long term use also creates scar tissue under some layers of muscles. These are tissues that are being overused and are stressed.
2. Dealing with scar tissue
Overused scar tissue is a problem. If you continue using some parts of your body continuously for long hours every single day (imagine sitting in a constant posture for hours at an end), it can lead to problems that develop over years. It causes your body to tense up and causes long-term health problems. Not only does it change the very nature of your muscles, but it has also been researched that it can affect the oxygen supply to the muscle area. When scar tissue is thus developed, it can create a huge long term problem that is only affected by long term use. The process that the chiropractor uses gives these muscles relief by increasing blood flow and bringing them back to their native states. Overall this has a profound effect on how you carry yourself and creates a space where you can perform optimally.
3. Blood circulations
Our muscle fibers are intricately arranged. However, they’re not suited to multiple hours of use without any respite. This cuts off the circulation to some areas of muscles because of constant pressure. The lack of supply of energy combined with overuse causes fatigue in the muscles and makes performing simple tasks difficult. Just like long hours of dancing have to be followed up by routine stretches so that you don’t end up with muscular injuries.
Yet, when we work day from the day we don’t deal with these injuries regularly at all. In fact, we ignore small pains and other problems in order to keep working. This causes more problems as we go along and creates a space where we can’t function.
This is where the chiropractors come in. They specifically target groups of overworked muscles and stretch your body so that these muscles are open to more blood circulation. Improved circulation returns oxygen to these muscles and creates a space where they can function optimally.
