Injury Medical Chiropractic Decompression Clinic focuses on the whole body, realigns the bones and joints, and helps strengthen the muscles. This helps prevent pain and injury and maintains spinal stability. Strong back muscles can help promote correct posture and keep the spine free from restriction. A stable spine is achieved when the back muscles can support and balance the everyday forces and stress of rigorous physical activity. Strengthening the back muscles can be done through yoga, weightlifting, and other recommended chiropractic exercises.

The primary muscles in the back include:
- Latissimus dorsi/lats) are in the area below the armpits and down the sides of the back
- Rhomboids are in the mid-upper back
- Trapezius/traps run from the neck to the mid-back
- Erector spinae run along the spine
Major Core Muscles
- The transverse abdominis
- Internal and external obliques
- Erector spinae
- Pelvic floor muscles
- The rectus abdominis/abs
Minor Core Muscles
The core is a crucial area of the body. The body utilizes the core for all movements and as a stabilization unit. Lack of strength places unwanted tension and pressure on the spine. Chiropractic ensures all the joints function correctly and enhances the core to brace more effectively and efficiently.
Adjustments and decompression realign the muscles into the proper position and help lubricate the muscles to help ease the stabilizer muscles that could be tight or tense. Treatments used can include:
- Spinal manual and motorized decompression
- Extremity adjustments
- Myofascial release
- Active Release Technique
- Trigger point therapy
- Natural pain relief
- Injury prevention
- Enhanced muscle performance
- Expedited recovery
- Increased endurance
- Mobility enhancement
- Increased strength
Core strength and stability play a huge factor in everyday life and functions. Maintaining health results requires attention to detail. Injury Medical Decompression Clinic will create a personalized optimal health treatment plan that focuses on whole-body realignment, simple lifestyle adjustments, health coaching/nutrition, and strength training to improve balance, strength, and core stability.
