Muscles don’t get sore without a good reason! When there are misalignments of the vertebrae the body tries to correct them. The muscles in the area contract to try to pull the bones back into their correct alignment. When the muscles are unable to do this they stay contracted.
A contracted, or working muscle produces a waste product which is mostly lactic acid and it builds up causing congestion in the muscle. This congestion is what is generally called ‘Muscle Pain’. The longer the misalignment is left untreated the larger the area of soreness becomes.
Don’t be put off by someone telling you ‘Its only muscle pain’.
You have either hurt the muscle or it is trying to pull the bones back into their correct alignment. If it is just getting progressively sorer then it is almost always trying to correct a misalignment. Come and get it treated.
There is usually relief from the first session and it usually takes a few sessions for the body to heal itself fully.
