Do you suffer from tight muscles that prevent easy and painless motion? Then you might benefit from myofascial release. This pain relief treatment can loosen fascia that create stiffness and discomfort in the body. Fascia can be found wherever muscle tissue is present, and while it provides essential connective functions, it can also lead to body pain and rigidity. Depending on the location of your stiffness, you might suffer from restricted neck motion, back spasms, or arm and leg pain. Myofascial release can relieve the tension that leads to fascia tightness depending on where the problem resides. Fascia tightness can produce side effects beyond muscle pain; in some cases, it can bring on chronic head pain, making myofascial release an essential wellness treatment option.
Could you benefit from myofascial release? Back & Neck Pain Relief Center in Springfield can help you find the cause of your muscle tightness and provide swift treatment for it. To schedule a consultation with a chiropractor and talk about your health needs, call (215) 346-7156.

Consider how many times each day you turn your head in response to a voice or visual distraction. Your neck is responsible for not only holding up your head but also allowing it to move in a variety of directions and angles. Neck pain can put into sharp relief just how essential your neck is to your general wellbeing. When you suffer from a stiff, sore, or sensitive neck, it may require professional treatment before you regain your mobility and quality of life.
Conditions that Can Cause Neck Pain
A poor night of sleep can cause temporary neck pain that typically subsides after a day or two. However, some conditions can cause acute or lasting neck discomfort. Car accidents often result in whiplash that can bring on swelling, inflammation, and stiffness in the neck area. A slip and fall accident can also injure the structures in the neck and produce long-term pain. A herniated disc in the cervical region can make neck motion incredibly difficult as well.
Treatment Services that Can Alleviate Neck Pain
As severe as your neck pain may be, the remedy for it normally does not require invasive measures. Chiropractic treatment can address the reasons for your neck discomfort and provide you with immediate and lasting relief. A chiropractor can identify regions of inflammation or misalignment along the cervical spine and make the necessary adjustments to alleviate swelling, stiffness, and pain. An initial adjustment can instantly lessen your neck pain. Future alignments can prevent the recurrence of neck pain as well. Plus, because chiropractic care demands no invasive procedures, you can leave the office with no recovery time necessary.

You use your back for virtually every movement you make. If you suffer from back pain, it can make each day an uncomfortable series of events. From the moment you wake up to the moment you lie down to sleep, back pain can prevent you from enjoying daily life.
Discomfort as You Perform Domestic Tasks
Your home life presents a never-ending assortment of errands and chores. Vacuum the carpet. Launder the linens. Wash the dishes. Bathe the children. If you suffer from back pain, any one of these activities can prove extremely difficult if not impossible. You need your back when pushing a vacuum back and forth or when reaching into the dryer to pull out your sheets. If you cannot find pain relief, it can result in considerable stress at home.
Irritation When You Sit Down
If you are like millions of other American workers, you go to the office and sit at a desk for most of your workday. Hours may go by before you get up or switch your position. During this time, your back can experience considerable stress, as the muscles must hold the same position for an extended period of time. This can lead to back pain, which may prohibit you from being able to sit at all.
Disruption as You Try to Sleep
Your body requires adequate sleep to repair damaged cells and rejuvenate itself for a new day. When you have back pain, however, you may not get the sleep you need for good health. Back discomfort may prevent you from being able to relax and fall asleep. Alternately, it can suddenly wake you from your slumber if you move into a painful position while asleep. Over time, sleep deprivation can increase the risk of other medical conditions, including high blood pressure, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.

Serious injuries can occur after even minor auto accidents. Sometimes, you may not realize you’ve been injured until you return home. Unfortunately, the injuries that can occur with car crashes can turn into chronic pain that can significantly interfere with your quality of life for months or even years. This is one reason why it’s so critical to seek treatment, such as chiropractic care, right away. Chiropractors often work with individuals who sustain head and spinal injuries.
Your spine is a delicate structure. An auto accident can injure many different components of the spine, including the vertebrae, intervertebral discs, and the muscles that support the spine. A spinal injury can result in significant pain, partial or complete paralysis, and loss of sensation. One type of spinal injury that is particularly common after a car crash is whiplash. Whiplash involves the cervical, or neck, region of the spine. Whiplash occurs when the neck’s soft tissues are forced out of their normal range of motion, causing severe strain. The symptoms of whiplash, such as neck pain and headache, may not occur right away. If you experience whiplash, seek chiropractic care for pain relief.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
A TBI can occur if your head strikes the windshield or the dashboard when the vehicle abruptly stops. TBIs may cause temporary or permanent symptoms and complications that can range from mild to severe. Some initial symptoms of a TBI may include dizziness, headache, nausea, and loss of consciousness.
Broken bones often occur with car accidents. It’s particularly common to break a wrist, arm, leg, or rib. Fortunately, most broken bones are easily treatable with a cast, followed by physical therapy. However, in the event of an open fracture, you’ll likely require surgery.
Chiropractic care can give you pain relief and help restore your quality of life. If you’ve been the victim of a car accident, schedule an appointment at the chiropractic practice of Dr. Schneider. You can call Back & Neck Pain Relief Center of Springfield, PA at (215) 346-7156 for more information.
