Running is considered to be one of the most popular forms of physical activity. This activity is not limited by location and because of its many benefits, such as building the muscles of the lower body and the burning of calories, its no wonder running is a preferred choice of exercise among many individuals. However, the constant and repetitive overuse of the feet against hard surfaces can frequently result in damage or injury to the hips, knees, and ankles.

Running injuries can occur unexpectedly over a variety of reasons and situations. Once you’ve suffered an injury as a result of running, time and patience will be a key element towards recovery and it’s important to give your body the proper time to heal. Using over-the-counter medication for the symptoms of pain and cold therapy to reduce the inflammation around the injury, are all temporary ways to relieve an individual’s injury or condition. But, ultimately, chiropractic care can be a great treatment option for runners. Chiropractic treatment focuses on musculoskeletal injuries, or soft tissue injuries, which can help heal many types of injuries, symptoms and conditions as well. Runners can greatly benefit from chiropractic care.

Many individuals believe that chiropractors only treat neck and back injuries but the entire human body can benefit from chiropractic adjustments and manual manipulations. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) indicated that knee pain is the most commonly diagnosed running injury. A chiropractor will gradually work with an individual’s injured knee according to their specific type of injury or condition by using specific chiropractic adjustment and manipulation techniques on areas of limited mobility of the surrounding joints of the knee, in order to increase movement, improve function, and reduce pain. Running injuries can cause pain, discomfort, and other symptoms, which can greatly alter an individual’s lifestyle. Chiropractic can help reduce an individual’s level of pain and shorten the amount of time they experience the pain and symptoms. Chiropractic care helps manage an individual’s symptoms naturally without needing the use of medications.

Occasionally, chiropractic care may follow with a set of personalized exercises to improve an individual’s strength, endurance, and stability, as well as to prevent future injuries. Running injuries most commonly occur due to overuse and/or an improper running form or gait. By maintaining the body’s correct alignment and its proper function, a chiropractor can help restore a runner’s health and allow them to return to their sport or physical activity. Sprains, strains, and other forms of trauma to the joints of the body can also be treated by a chiropractor.

Chiropractic treatment also promotes faster healing for injuries because it allows the body to heal itself. Chiropractic adjustments and manual manipulations work to increase the blood flow around the area of the injury as well as improve an individual’s restricted mobility resulting from the injury. Chiropractors may also use adjustments and manipulations on other areas of the body to stimulate healing of the affected region.

Running is a great form of exercise that many people can enjoy without injury if the proper precautions are taken. From using proper footwear, stretching and warming up, to avoiding overexertion, it’s important to follow these steps to minimize injuries. However, if an injury does occur, chiropractic treatment may be a great treatment option for many individuals to decrease the symptoms, improve healing time, and maintain the body’s overall health.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
