Normally functioning muscle and tissue are not only arranged in a very organized and parallel manner, but if you were to look at them on edge, they are flat and smooth, like a piece of paper. Once muscle or tissue is injured (stretched, pulled, torn, etc.), the microscopic fibers become disrupted and disorganized. Instead of fibers running parallel to each other in an organized fashion with their normal degree of elasticity/flexibility, the fibers now run every possible direction and have an extremely diminished amount of organization and elasticity. When this occurs, you will begin to experience a reduction of joint motion, which is then followed by a symptom with which many are familiar – pain. Without treatment from a chiropractor, this pain is followed by joint degeneration.
Results Chiropractic utilizes a number of different techniques to break apart the disorganized tissue in order to allow it to heal in an organized pattern.
