Using hands-on, natural methods, chiropractic centers on treating the cause of physical pain rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic works to improve the function of your musculoskeletal and nervous system. It can improve movement in your neck, back, arms, legs, and other joints. Chiropractic services can also improve your posture, and provide relief from migraines and headaches. It is a safe, holistic, and non-invasive treatment for numerous ailments plaguing people today.
Chiropractic and Physical Therapy
Physical therapy and chiropractic are similar in that they target each individual’s specific needs through comprehensive care and natural approaches. Physical therapy, on the other hand, may be the solution for pain relief after an injury or an accident. This type of therapy specifically helps individuals maintain, restore, and improve movement, activity, and functioning. Physical therapists typically design a program that combines exercise and manual therapies with other forms of treatment. The primary focus is on long-term recovery, strength, and flexibility.
Headache and Migraine Chiropractic
Did you know that 90% of Americans suffer from headaches? Luckily, there are treatment options available besides taking medication. Chiropractic treatment can serve as a good preventive treatment for chronic migraines and headaches that originate in the neck. The majority of headaches are associated with muscle tension in the neck. Routine chiropractic adjustments of the neck, upper and lower back, can improve spinal function and alleviate the tension on the body.
Neck Pain Chiropractic
The neck houses numerous structures such as vertebrae, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and glands that are susceptible to injury and pain through repetitive movement, accidents, arthritis, stress, aging, and more. Chiropractors will often perform exams and run tests to diagnose your condition. Adjustments may be applied to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion and optimal nerve function. In the long run, you will likely notice a reduction of pain and stiffness and may experience an overall sense of health and wellbeing. In addition to manipulation, your course of treatment may include mobilization, massage, or rehabilitative exercises.
Back Pain Chiropractic
Lower back pain is a common affliction. Eight out of ten adults have experienced it at one point or another. Back pain or sciatica is commonly the result of muscle strain from lifting a heavy object, and problems with back structures, such as a disc, muscle, or ligament injuries. When the spine is misaligned, it can cause pain, difficulty moving, or impaired nerve function. Chiropractic services are one of the few noninvasive ways to restore nerve function and is the safest and most effective courses of treatment for lower back pain. Adjustments can restore function and flexibility, prevent further injury, and relieve pain.
Chiropractic medicine may be your solution for arthritis and painful joints. By gently manipulating your soft tissue to stop muscle spasms and relieve tenderness, a chiropractor can ease pain and reduce inflammation. The doctor may also implement active exercises or traction to slowly stretch your joints and increase your range of motion. Ultimately, chiropractic can aid in maximizing the function of an arthritic joint without invasive surgery or pills.
After sustaining a personal injury accident, visiting a chiropractor can reduce your pain, improve joint mobility and decrease the chance of suffering from arthritis or long-term soft tissue damage. Chiropractors treat 33% of all accident victims, including workplace incidents, car accidents, and slip and fall accidents. Whiplash is a common issue we treat. After an injury occurs, the most commonly affected areas of the body are the neck and spine. That being the case, seeking treatment through chiropractic can restore your mobility, strengthen and stabilize your muscles, and treat pain.
Sports Injuries Chiropractic
It is estimated that 90% of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to treat and prevent injuries and increase their physical performance. As athletes train, take impacts and push their bodies to the limit, they are susceptible to spinal misalignments and imperfections that can hinder their mobility and neurological functions. Chiropractic adjustments can help injured and non-injured athletes by improving flexibility, increasing blood flow and neurological activity, and reducing joint stress and the risk of further injury. For athletes and those who exercise at a high intensity, the healing time from minor injuries can be shortened, thus improving overall performance.
