Contract. Relax. This is the basic mechanism of muscular action. Problems develop when there's too much of one or the other. In most cases, too much contraction is the culprit.
Persistent muscular contraction in the lower back or neck, for example, leads to a cascade of troublesome effects. Toxic metabolic end-products - including lactic acid - accumulate. These small molecules irritate local nerve endings and cause ongoing pain. Muscle spasm results which narrows local blood vessels. Too little blood reaching the area deprives tissues of oxygen and other important nutrients. Cellular damage results with further build-up of noxious metabolites.
Chiropractic treatment encourages a return to normal sinusoidal balance by restoring normal spinal alignment. Spasmodic muscles are enabled to relax. Blood vessels can now supply appropriate amounts of oxygen and nutrients. Metabolic waste is removed. Vitality is restored and pain resolves. Spinal muscles and spinal joints return to operating in a natural ebb-and-flow rhythm.
There is a feeling of hoplessness after a car accident like mine. I was sitting at home just taking medication waiting to get better. I felt depressed and useless. The more I waited the worse I felt. It seemed like my doctors were beginning to not believe that I was still hurting and I felt limited. The first thing Dr. Klinger wanted me to do was to walk and become active again. With adjustments I was able to move better with less pain and heal well. I can't thank you and your office enough for all the help I got and all the benefit I received. I hope nobody has to go through this but if it happens go see Dr. K.
