Chiropractic maintenance care — focused on improving range of motion, strengthening muscular strength and improving posture — offers many health benefits, according to Dr. Brandon Siwy, a chiropractor with Muller Chiropractic, located at 3083 William St. in Cheektowaga.
“Many jobs require repetitive movements that can lead to tightened bands of skeletal muscle fascia known as trigger points, as well as bad posture habits such as rounding the shoulders too far forward and other cervical skeletal muscle issues,” said Dr. Siwy. “Additionally, sitting too long is putting tension and shortening major muscles such as our hamstrings, erector spinae and iliopsoas. Consistent chiropractic adjustments can provide motion to these stiff joints and help keep you free from pain.”
There are several techniques utilized in maintenance care at Muller Chiropractic to help individuals lead a healthier lifestyle. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a method that allows you to stretch, relax and contract against resistance to further achieve maximum flexibility. The Myofascial Release Technique (MRT) is a way to relax and heal damaged soft tissue and restricted muscles. Muscle adhesions are broken up with constant controlled pressure and movement. Lastly, the Active Release Technique (ART) is a manual, hands-on approach that relieves soft tissue tension by removing adhesions and therefore promotes blood flow and healing.
