How can chiropractic care help you?
Back and neck pain
Chiropractors specialize in the diagnoses and treatment of neck and back pain of any kind. Studies often show better results with higher patient satisfaction and lower risk than traditional treatment from an MD.
Conservative chiropractic care for disc conditions may involve the use of ice and electrical muscle stimulation or ultrasound to reduce any initial swelling and inflammation during the acute phase. Guarded streching of certain muscle groups and manipulation to restore lost joint integrity may also be started.
Shoulder and arm pain
Chiropractic is known for its ability to relieve hand, arm and shoulder issues. It does not simply treat the symptoms, as conventional medicine often does. Rather, it goes one step further by looking at overall health of each patient to get to the root of the problem and find a lasting cure.
Medical doctors often treat leg pain with pain killers, telling the patient that the condition may go away naturally. Patients’ liver, kidney, or stomach lining can be damaged by the long-term use of drugs. Your chiropractor will treat your leg pain by finding the location of nerve irritation, and working to relieve the pressure on the nerve, allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
Numbess and tingling
The primary concern of chiropractors is to remove nerve interference. We use specific means to remove nerve irritation without invasive drugs, shots, or surgery, and to stop numbness at its source.
While chiropractic care can not treat every kind of headache, it has a very high success rate for treating the most common tension headaches.
While traditional medical care treats the area where pain is evident, chiropractic looks at the whole body. This approach is especially useful with pinched nerves since the pain may stem from a back injury. Chiropractic care helps pinched nerves by reducing constriction of the nerve and relaxing tight muscles causing pain and inflammation.
Pregnancy and muscle aches
If you are concerned about possible negative effects of medications on your baby, chiropractic care is a safe, conservative treatment option.
Repetitive stress injuries
Repetitive Stress Injuries, or RSIs, can be treated through a combination of physical therapy and effective chiropractic manipution techniques.
Auto and work related injuries
Whiplash, sprain/strain, pulled muscles, bruising….these are the problems for which a chiropractor can help you the most. We strive to heal this kind of pain at the source rather than trying to treat the symptoms with pain medication.
The chiropractic treatment of athletic injuries can serve injured players with prompt treatment, resulting in obtaining recovery before irreparable damage is done.
