UNDERSTANDING MUSCULAR IMBALANCE
When you suffer from an imbalance of your muscles, the joints and muscles in your body are not working together in the way that they should. When everything is working properly, opposing muscles apply an equal amount of tension and you have seamless movement of your joints. However, your body is a delicate, intricate system. It’s easy to throw off the balance of your muscles, whether you have actually had an injury or you move in a certain way, causing strain on your muscles. Over time, this can cause injury and impact your mobility. When you have muscular damage, your body needs to heal. Your San Diego chiropractor can help you to accelerate the process, restoring your muscular health and balance in the process.
HOW MUSCLES HEAL
When you have muscular imbalance, you may experience inflammation, tears, and strain on your muscles. The only way that they can truly heal is to avoid movements that could cause more damage. They also need time to allow collagen production to stimulate new growth in the damaged area. If you continue to do the same thing you have always done, you can expect your muscle imbalance to persist. The end result can be pain and loss of flexibility that is truly aggravating. However, if your body is allowed to heal, it will naturally begin the process of rejuvenation. Muscles will begin to repair themselves as collagen goes to work. Scar tissue is a part of the process and the muscles will need to be moved in the proper direction in order to avoid tightness and pain. Chiropractic services are helpful in improving the healing process.
