Contract. Relax. This is the basic mechanism of muscular action. Problems develop when there's too much of one or the other. In most cases, too much contraction is the culprit.
Persistent muscular contraction in the lower back or neck, for example, leads to a cascade of troublesome effects. Toxic metabolic end-products - including lactic acid - accumulate. These small molecules irritate local nerve endings and cause ongoing pain. Muscle spasm results which narrows local blood vessels. Too little blood reaching the area deprives tissues of oxygen and other important nutrients. Cellular damage results with further build-up of noxious metabolites.
Chiropractic treatment encourages a return to normal sinusoidal balance by restoring normal spinal alignment. Spasmodic muscles are enabled to relax. Blood vessels can now supply appropriate amounts of oxygen and nutrients. Metabolic waste is removed. Vitality is restored and pain resolves. Spinal muscles and spinal joints return to operating in a natural ebb-and-flow rhythm.
MOSKOWITZ CHIROPRACTIC will be CLOSED on MONDAY- MAY 28, 2018 for the Memorial Day Holiday.
"I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Mike for about 5 years now when I come to Bethesda. I have used many other chiropractors and he is the best ever! I always tell him he is the Michael Jordan of Chiropractic. He is a very friendly and honest guy. I would recommend him to anyone of all ages. He is by far the best in the area. Oh and the staff in the front is very friendly!"
