Back Pain

One of the most common concerns causing individuals to seek out chiropractic care, back pain can be either acute or chronic, and can occur in different areas of the back in one place or multiple areas simultaneously.

Acute back pain often originates from an injury or accident, manifesting suddenly and typically rating as moderate to severe on a Likert pain scale. Chronic back pain persists over longer periods of time (usually several months or more) and often rates lower in regard to pain levels (mild to moderate). Chronic pain often seems to never heal on its own, and may have originating factors that need to be addressed before the body can recover.

Back pain occurs in either the lower back, or mid to upper back.

Neck Pain

Neck pain occurs for a variety of reasons. Neck pain can originate from postural concerns—the habitual use of mobile phones frequently contributes to forward-head posture and “text-neck”—but can also be created by environments with poor ergonomics, such as in the workplace, the office, and even during sleep.

Neck pain can also be the result of previous injuries or degeneration over time, as the result of arthritis, slipped discs, or a repeated mechanical movement. Neck pain can be sharp, aching, temperature-related (feels cold or hot), numb and tingling, or stabbing. Because of chiropractic care’s emphasis on neuromusculoskeletal disorders, chiropractic is particularly effective in the treatment of neck symptoms.

Headaches

Chronic headaches are often a condition that people feel obligated to live with, but fortunately, this is not the case. Chiropractic care is very effective for headache treatment, and allows the flow of nerve energy which is often constricted or trapped in the neck, shoulders, and back to be restored.

Chiropractic care has a dual function in the treatment of headaches, both reducing tension and strain (which often serves as a contributing factor) and facilitating improved circulation and detoxification. In addition to addressing the nervous system, muscular system, and skeletal system, chiropractic care also boosts the function of the immune system, the circulatory system, and the respiratory system. The enhanced function of these symptoms often helps to provide immediate and long-lasting headache relief.

Migraines

While migraines remain largely a mystery with regard to their exact cause, chiropractic care has shown to be a very effective migraine treatment. Migraines often originate from a series of individualized triggers that differ for each person, and once a migraine begins (usually a 24-36 hour cycle), it can be difficult to stop the symptoms or reduce the pain with traditional medical interventions.

Many individuals feel compelled to control their migraines with over-the-counter and prescription medications, but this isn’t the only option available. Regular chiropractic care can allow the body to rebalance itself, and most clients feel significant migraine relief as a result of their regular care.

Joint Pain

Joint pain can be felt in any area of the body where there are joints—this includes the body’s limbs, fingers, toes, and spine. Joint pain can manifest as a feeling of aching pain, cold-temperature pain, a feeling of “grating,” burning, or stiffness.

Joint pain is often caused by wear-and-tear, which can be the result of certain repetitive physical activities or varying forms of arthritis, which causes degeneration of the joints. Irrespective of the cause, chiropractic care can provide relief for joint pain through a variety of different modalities. At minimum, chiropractic care can aid in decreasing inflammation and realigning joints that have moved out of place, which in and of itself can provide substantial relief.

Sciatica

Sciatica is the name for the nerve pain that is most commonly felt in the posterior and back of the legs. Sciatic pain typically occurs as a shooting pain accompanied by sudden weakness in the legs and glutes. While sciatica may be felt on only one side of the body, it can also appear on both sides.

Sciatic nerve pain occurs when misaligned bone and joints, slipped or herniated discs, or bone spurs press against the sciatic nerve in the lower part of the back. The result of this pressure is the classic radiating sciatic pain and weakness in the lower limbs, which may only occur momentarily or may persist for longer periods of time.

Poor Posture

Poor posture is often thought to be a cause of its own, and in some cases can be—but most commonly, poor posture is the result of other factors that are either lifestyle or anatomy related.

Working in an environment without proper ergonomic support, engaging in regular repetitive movements that require slouching, bending, or hunching, or a lack of muscle tone can contribute to the development of poor posture. Nevertheless, poor posture may still be present when all of these factors are absent, due to a genetic predisposition, pre-existing misalignment originating in childhood, or injuries or weakness in the musculature of the body.

Fatigue

Generalized fatigue can be difficult to treat with traditional medicine, particularly if there are no biological markers that indicate the underlying cause. Without a diagnosis, people can be forced to live in frustration, unable to understand why they are constantly exhausted and depleted of energy.

In chiropractic care, it is thought that inhibited nerve flow can contribute to fatigue and exhaustion. As such, chiropractic interventions are often utilized to treat fatigue, with quantifiable and noticeable results. Chiropractic care can regulate most of the body’s systems, simultaneously unblocking pathways in the body which were unable to be reached by blood, oxygen, nutrients, and cerebrospinal fluid circulation. An improvement in circulation of nerve energy, blood, lymphatic fluid, and other important bodily substances can immediately contribute to enhanced energy and drastically reduce fatigue.

Scoliosis

2 – 3 of every 100 people have scoliosis, making it a much more common condition than is widely realized. Most people with scoliosis (barring extreme cases) are unaware that they even have the condition. Outside of subtle exterior markers, it can be hard to notice—until it begins to cause pain and discomfort.

Scoliosis is often thought to be treated exclusively through surgery, but fortunately, this is not the case. Chiropractic care for scoliosis is very effective, particularly with the use of Chiropractic BioPhysics®, which is a branch of chiropractic science devoted to moving bones and joints long-term. If you suspect or know you have scoliosis, chiropractic care may be exactly the solution you have been looking for.

Injuries & Accidents

The effects of injuries and accidents can be difficult to quantify, especially directly following the event. An injury or accident may appear benign or healed at first, but leave lingering effects that never seem to resolve or abate. This is where expert chiropractic care comes in—if you’ve been injured or experienced an accident that has left residual effects, chiropractic care can help to rebalance your body’s systems and accelerate your healing and recovery process.

With intentional, individualized chiropractic care, your body can achieve its best healing outcomes, helping to restore your mobility, flexibility, and vitality.
