    One common problem of swapping leads and difficulty maintaining one is a spasm in the posterior pectoral muscle. That would not be a chiropractic issue, but a muscular one. A body worker who does...

    It's also important to combine the chiropractic adjustment with muscular release. Because if there are muscle spasms that are consistently tight, they will undo the adjustment. Does that make sense?...
