Cramping of the muscles can very painful, and it can also lead to restricted movement and overtightening. Muscle cramping can be caused by many issues, such as vitamin deficiency or dehydration, or it can be part of a bigger issue. While drinking more water or taking vitamins can help to reduce the frequency of muscle cramps, chiropractic can be a great way to treat more serious and frequent muscle cramping.

How Can I Treat Muscle Cramps?

Some types of cramps are simple to treat. It could be as easy as applying ice, heat, or a topical cream to alleviate muscle cramps. However, muscle cramping that happens more frequently, might not respond to more simple methods of treatment. This is where chiropractic care comes in. A chiropractor can help alleviate frequent muscle cramps.

How Can Chiropractic Help?

According to case studies, muscle cramping might be caused by subluxations of the spine. A chiropractor, will determine where misalignments are located along the spine and perform a gentle adjustment to correct the misalignment. Joint and muscle movement may also be explored in order to pinpoint what is causing muscle cramping. Chiropractic seeks to treat the root of the problem and not just mask the problem, and proper alignment of the spine increases movement and muscle tone and decreases muscle cramping. Chiropractic adjustments, along with focusing on the dynamics of movement, can prevent muscle cramps from occurring so you can feel relief.
