Chiropractic care is not limited to treating bones of the spine. It can be extremely helpful for the whole musculoskeletal system as well as helping with chronic conditions or conditions like allergies, stress, fatigue etc... Adjusting also boosts the immune system through a positive input to the nervous system, thus helping the body to stay in optimal health.
So if you have muscle injury or any issues, definitely contact your chiropractor to get evaluated and chances are you will get great relief from muscle work, adjustments and stretching/ exercises your chiropractor will prescribe for you to do at home.
Hope this helps and wishing you a speedy recovery.

I hope my answer will help you with your question ! have a great day !
As a Chiropractor, my job is to help restore as much structural balance and strength as possible which subsequently relieves muscle pain in the majority of cases, especially physical injuries.
If the muscle is torn we usually recommend more diagnostics such as a CT or MRI to name two.

Muscle pain or Nociception, can be shortly inhibited by activation C-fibers for a short time will inhibit the type 4 nociceptors. so will a tens unit.
Cupping, cross tissue massage, Graston Technique, Active release technique, etc are designed to help repair muscle tissue faster after injury. Manipulation to keep joints mobile and joint fluids hydrated due to lack of blood vessel all improve time of healing.
In short, a Chiropractor is taught how to improve the quality of muscle tissue and healing. This should improve the pain both directly and indirectly.

Yes, chiropractic care can help with all muscular skeletal pain, care is not just limited to the bones and muscles associated with the spine. What type of injury are you healing from?
Pei Vuong, D.C.
There are a couple of ways this happens, first is when someone receives a chiropractic adjustment/mobilization. The human body releases hormones called endorphin and encephalin. These hormones are our bodies pain reducing hormones. Once you receive an adjustment, there is a neurological reflex to the muscles that are in spasm and the muscle will then start to relax.
There are also many different modalities that can be used to help reduce muscle pain such as electric stimulation, ultrasound and cryotherapy (ice). All therapy is dependent on what muscles are involved and what exactly is the cause of your muscle pain. This will be assessed during an office visit examination. I hope this answered your question.
The challenge is to understand why. Because chiropractors are working on pain, they are working on the condition that causes that pain: Subluxation!
This is misalignment in the spine that cause nerve pressure and the body can't heal properly and recreate. So decrease of pain is a positive side effect of restoration of the body: proper healing and function capacity.
