What came first the chicken or the egg??? This is what we must decide when treating muscle tension or spasm conditions.
What came first the muscle tension or the spinal dysfunction?
In almost all cases muscle spasm will create joint dysfunction due to the constant tension and pulling muscle leading to misaligned and stiff vertebrae.
On the other hand misalignment and poor motion of the spine can cause muscle tension and spasm.
This is a condition that can be treated by adjustments to align the spine and manual therapy techniques to reduce muscle spasm and muscle tension and to stretch tight muscles.
Ultrasound and Interferential current treatments are also effective in offering muscle relief.
