Like eating a healthy diet and exercise, chiropractic is preventative treatment for the long-term health of your body. Some people only need to visit a chiropractor every few months. Others are recovering from an injury and need an adjustment each week. Whatever your situation may be, a trained chiropractor can help develop a plan that helps you live a pain-free life while doing the activities that you love.
What Chiropractic Treats
Stiff Range of Motion
Your range of motion normally declines with age but structural issues can also impact the flexibility in your joints. Chiropractic adjustments can help increase your range of motion. If you do not address the issue, your misaligned joint can impact the nervous system. This may occur with a herniated back.
We all get headaches. Sometimes it is from stress or sickness. Other times, our headaches are a result of a misaligned spine. If you are taking pain killers every day for your pain relief, it is time to look at other options. Pain relievers can be addicting and bad for your internal organs. A chiropractor can take the pressure off your nerves that may be causing the headaches.
Low Back Pain and Neck Pain
Many of us sit at computers all day for work. This modern lifestyle can create low back and neck pain. As long as you are sitting for hours at a time, you are going to suffer from back and neck pain. We suggest a stand-up desk, as well as chiropractic adjustments to prevent the pain. A stand up desk forces your body to have good posture and maintain alignment of your spine.
Sciatica stems from nerves that are compressed from a herniated disc. As long as your discs are herniated, you are going to feel sciatic pain, travelling from the lower back to the buttocks to the leg. Sciatica can prevent you from doing the activities that you love. Very few techniques treat sciatica. Some medical professionals recommend surgery. That should be your last resort. Regular chiropractic visits can re-align the spine, taking the pressure off the sciatic nerve for pain relief.
There are many other chiropractic treatments, including:
- Colic, Acid Reflux and Ear Infections in Children
- Neurological Conditions
- Blood Pressure
- Frozen Shoulder
The misalignments within your body will not be gone overnight. However, most feel relief on the first visit. Regular chiropractic adjustments provide maintenance to your lifestyle.
