Muscle Pain

Almost everyone has faced achy sore and tight muscle pain or discomfort.  We also find that patients are very convinced that when these aches and pains return often without long term relief that it’s something they just have to deal with.  More often that not, even simple muscle pain is related to more complex underlying issues. This is why we offer comprehensive treatment and care at Botti Chiropractic & Wellness.

Causes Of Muscle Pain

Muscle pain is mostly caused by stress, minor injuries, overuse, poor posture, spinal issues and tension. In such cases, the pain experienced affects a small part of the body or a few muscles. There is a different muscle pain where the pain is systemic. The patient experiences pain in all the muscles of the body due to illness, an infection or medication side effects. Some of the common conditions that might lead to muscle pain include chronic fatigue syndrome, dystonia, fibromyalgia, claudication, hypothyroidism, lupus, muscle cramp, muscle pull, Lyme disease, myofascial pain syndrome, polymyositis, polymyalgia rheumatic, rocky mountain spotted fever, strain injuries and rheumatoid arthritis among many others.

When To See A Medical Specialist

Muscle pain is not something that should be ignored. Patient’s should not have routine or frequent pain.   If the pain is as a result of severe injuries or illness, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. If you are experiencing extreme weakness in your muscles, stiff neck, high fever, trouble breathing or dizziness, you might want to seek medical care. In case you have been bitten by a tick, have a rash, experiencing muscle pain after an exercise, or after taking certain medication, or have signs of infection, you should schedule a visit to a medical practitioner.
