About Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic services help with disorders and injuries within the musculoskeletal system, as well as the nervous system. Often, a chiropractor assists patients who have pain in their back, neck, or extremities. Modalities that a chiropractor uses may include chiropractic adjustments, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, and exercise therapy.
Issues Treated by a Chiropractor
A chiropractor treats back pain from an injury or chronic condition. For instance, you may visit a chiropractor's office if you have a herniated disc or one that's degenerative. Chiropractic care can target pain from arthritis or the nerve-related symptoms from sciatica. Additionally, a chiropractor helps with neck injuries and issues affecting the neck, including whiplash. Patients come to our office for relief of pain induced by a personal, work, or sports-related injury. We treat issues associated with car accident injuries, as well.
Sometimes, patients experience pain in other areas of the body like the extremities. This could be caused by an issue like tendonitis or bursitis, both of which can cause pain and limit your mobility. Often, they're caused by overusing that body part.
If you have headaches or migraines, the problem isn't always a result of stress or an issue with your brain. Misalignments in your spine can irritate your surrounding nerves and tissue and stimulate a headache or migraine.
Chiropractic Services We Offer
We tailor a plan specific to your health needs and condition. It may incorporate giving you chiropractic alignments, which consist of a chiropractor manipulating the vertebrae in your back. When they're realigned, it reduces pressure on the discs. This may help them heal as it reduces pressure on them. This also assists if you have nerve-related symptoms from a misaligned disc irritating a nerve.
Our chiropractor may utilize spinal decompression -- a treatment where a chiropractor positions you on a table with a rigging system. The device stretches your spine to alleviate pressure on the discs. This can promote healing by encouraging nutrient-rich blood to flow to the area. It also relieves pressure on the injured disc to allow it to heal.
