Thanking your muscles for their hard work

Our body's muscles never sleep. The heart is a muscle that beats every second of our lives and begins pumping blood through our bodies before we are born. The intercostal muscles between our ribs work with the diaphragm muscle to keep us breathing while we sleep. We cannot focus or blink our eyes, say a word, take a step, or even sit up without using our muscles.

To maintain healthy muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints, it is very important to provide the essential macro- and micro-nutrients (healthy foods, vitamins, and minerals) as well as maintain adequate hydration (plenty of water). It is also vital to exercise regularly. Finally, we can care for our musculoskeletal system with massage and physiotherapy.


At Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture located in Park Slope, Brooklyn 11215, we use a variety of state-of-the-art devices to maximize soft tissue health and restoration. Ultra-sound, low-frequency electric stimulation, interferential electro-therapy as well as TRACTION, massage rollers, and hot packs are available for patient care.

Physiotherapy is useful for recovery from a disc injury, sprain/strains, fractured bones, and pulled muscles. Injuries related to motor vehicle accidents, work, or personal injuries of the neck, back, arms, or legs are also successfully treated with physiotherapy.
