Sometimes, muscle pain is the result of an injury to the muscle, such as a muscle pull, tear, or rupture. Other times, the tendon becomes strained in a specific injury or as a result of repetitive strain. Examples of repetitive strain to the muscle or tendon include prolonged and/or poor posture, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Most people do not realize that they have experienced muscle injury until they feel symptoms, and by then the surrounding joints and nerves may have become affected.

Chiropractic care is effective for treating muscle pain because it is comprehensive and addresses not only the muscles, but also the joints and their related spinal nerves. Chiropractors determine which muscles, joints, and nerves are involved via examination and also determine any underlying causes. Some combination of the following treatments may be recommended to decrease pain and speed healing: exercise, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and ice or heat may be used to help alleviate symptoms.
