How did I get muscle pain and tension?

The most common causes of muscle pain are;

  • The stresses of life – rushing around, poor sleep and recovery, no time to condition your body and poor nutrition
  • Overuse of certain body parts for long periods – lots of sitting using a computer, repetitive tasks and time spent driving
  • Injuries from sport and high activity
  • General deconditioning with time as our life phases alter our physical state
  • New physical activity or an old activity you haven’t done for a while such as gardening

Less common causes include;

  • Chronic Fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Medications including statins
  • Influenza
  • Hypothyroidism

How can muscle pain and tension present?

The pain can range from dull to sharp and be intermittent or constant. Most muscle pains are self-limiting but if they persist then they need to be examined and an appropriate course of action planned.

How Chiropractic and Myotherapy can help you

  1. Examination

    The first and most important step is to evaluate if we can help you. We are well trained to conduct a thorough history followed by an orthopaedic, neurological and physical examination.

    If you have any imagery studies already performed these are valuable. If you don’t these may be requested if the history and examination deems this important to your case.

  2. Provide a diagnosis

    At the end of our examination we will be able to provide you with an accurate diagnosis of what the problem is.

  3. Plan a Course of Action

    If after the examination we determine that we can help you we will plan a Course of Action to get you back to where you want to be. We will be able to give you

    a) A timeline of how long the process will take
    b) The techniques we recommend
    c) What you need to modify at home and work
    d) Give you any necessary exercises and advice that assist recovery
