In fact, if one muscle is impaired, its changed movement can affect how surrounding muscles move and function. It can also affect the alignment of bones and decrease the strength and function of connective tissue. Visiting a chiropractor to adjust a muscle can help solve a lot of problems, including symptoms such as pain, decreased range of motion, and even balance issues. Absolutely.
