Approximately 22 million Americans seek chiropractic care each year, primarily for pain in the head, neck, back, arms, or legs. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, caused by an injury or an illness, and moderate or severe, we can help. Here are some common conditions that chiropractors can treat.
Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents can be tough on the body. Even if you don’t immediately feel pain, there can be short-term or long-term damage to your musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors offer a drug-free, safe, and effective way to manage the pain of a car accident.
Like car accidents, sports injuries can exert a tremendous amount of force on the body, damaging the muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons. Chiropractor care can relieve the pain inflicted by a sports injury.
Neck pain is one of the most common reasons to seek chiropractic help. Whether your pain stems from a repetitive strain injury such as “text neck,” physical deterioration in your cervical spine, or a traumatic injury, we can help.
Back pain is another common reason for people to seek chiropractic care. We can alleviate pain in the upper, middle, or lower back regardless of its cause.
Herniated, bulging, or slipped discs can cause excruciating pain. We use gentle manipulations to relax the disc back into its proper position. Many patients are able to avoid surgery with our help. If you do need surgery, regular chiropractic care afterwards can help reduce the risk of reinjury.
Subluxation is the partial dislocation of a joint. Spinal subluxation is generally the result of a traumatic injury. It can be extremely painful and life-limiting. Chiropractic manipulation can realign the spine, removing the subluxation and relieving the pain.
Severe pain, nausea, and extreme sensitivity to external stimuli are hallmarks of migraines that can last for hours or even days at a time. Depending on their severity, migraines can be debilitating. Chiropractic treatment can reduce the frequency of migraines as well as their severity.
Sciatica is persistent pain that begins in the lower back or buttock and runs down the leg. It is caused by compression of the sciatic nerve. A chiropractor can relieve this nerve compression, reducing or eliminating the pain.
The musculoskeletal system is filled with nerves. When these nerves are compressed, they send pain signals to the brain. Regular chiropractic care can reduce the compression, allowing the nerves to heal.
