When you consider that the main components necessary for upright standing are your skeleton, ligaments and muscles, it is important that all three structures are all well looked after.
It is well understood that poor posture and subsequent skeletal alignment will lead to abnormal changes to the soft tissue design of ligaments and muscles. Ligaments are like cables that keep bones attached to one another and limit range of motion whilst muscles move bones and keep the skeleton unified. With poor skeletal alignment or repetitive use of certain body parts from exercise or work can cause muscles to behave erratically leading to hypersensitivity to the “power points” of muscles known as trigger points. In addition, abnormal skeletal alignment may lead to the power of nerves to work below par and not function properly leading to Cannons Law of Denervation of muscle irritability. If this irritability is left unchecked, the area of irritable muscle trigger points will very often distribute into a larger area leading its own independent muscle memory. The most effective manner to reconnect this independent muscle memory with the body is to perform clinical massage therapy to the hypersensitive, independently functioning muscles of the body.
It is important to note that if the skeleton and ligaments are not normally aligned, massage performed in isolation will not be long lasting as the nerve feedback loops that triggered the tight muscles will reoccur. However, if the alignment is normalized very often muscles that have been infiltrated with hypersensitive fibrous scar tissue will still need clinical massage to restore muscular normality.
Another way of describing poor muscle health that is infused with fibrous scar tissue is as “tough meat.” If you are to eat tough meat you must first use a tenderizing hammer to soften the meat. Because a tenderizing hammer cannot be used on live animals as it would be considered as a criminal assault, clinical massage is the tenderizing solution.
At Epstein Chiropractors, Mr Andrew Sale who holds a Diploma in Remedial Massage with 23 years experience is very well qualified to perform all aspects of human tenderizing. With access to all diagnostic information available at Epstein Chiropractors, understanding your musculoskeletal complaint will be much better understood.

Consistently stretching your neck ligaments for as little as 20 minutes a day in the wrong direction may cause spinal deformity leading to neck pain, headaches, tight shoulders and hunch back (Thoracic Hyperkyphosis).
