Arthrogenic Inhibition: A Chiropractic Approach to Healing


Addressing arthrogenic muscle inhibition

This is a neuromuscular condition in which the joint provides the brain with information by way of sensory nerves and the spinal cord. As the inputs from the joint are changed because of injury, the change in activity of signalling between joint and brain cause inhibition in the muscles. Therefore, the main problem with arthrogenic muscle inhibition is its subsequent effect on range of movement. Because the muscles cannot activate fully, a common result is muscle wasting and inequality in strength between the two joints.

At Barton Chiropractic Clinic, we focus on mitigating the symptoms of arthrogenic muscle inhibition by improving joint mobility through targeted adjustments. We focus on improving neurological function between muscle and brain to allow for the proper activation and sustained contraction of muscles surround the joint, allowing strength to be retained and rehabilitation to go faster. If you are interested in finding out more about how we can contribute to the rehabilitation of your joint injury, give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
