Conditions that benefit from chiropractic adjustments
An auto accident can cause a lot of damage to the body that isn't visible. The snapping motion that occurs on impact can cause damage to your shoulder under the seatbelt and the neck often incurs whiplash, even though you may not feel any pain in the immediate aftermath. The quicker you get in to see the chiropractor, the sooner you can make sure you don't have a serious misalignment.
Getting a chiropractic adjustment before you take part in your favorite sport can help reduce the occurrence of sports injuries. If you do get injured, chiropractic adjustments can get you back to participating as quickly as possible. Especially in contact sports, misalignment is common.
Back pain is one of the most common types of pain and interferes with sufferers' ability to perform their normal daily activities. The back is complex, and the pain can be caused by many things, but chiropractic adjustments can help with most of them. It can get the vertebrae back where they belong, and this relieves pressure on the surrounding soft tissues and the nerves leading to the rest of the body.
Sciatica is a condition that results from pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve. It sends pain from the lower back down through the legs. It can make doing everyday activities difficult. When the vertebrae are out of alignment, they can place stress on the nerves and trigger pain.
Additional treatments offered
Massage therapy not only feels great, but it also serves a very important function in chiropractic care. When muscles are relaxed, other procedures that your chiropractor wishes to use are more effective. It is a complementary therapy that enhances the whole treatment experience.
Spinal decompression is a therapy that stretches the spine to help the spaces between the vertebrae to open up and allow the discs to pop back into the place where they belong. Once they are back in place, back pain will frequently disappear.
