Chiropractors can treat numerous health conditions. However, some conditions are known to respond quickly to chiropractic care, but can easily worsen and even become debilitating without treatment. Here are a few times you should definitely check in with a chiropractor.
Chronic headaches: Headaches can have many different causes, but joint irritation and muscle tension are among the most common. A chiropractor can help reduce pressure along your spine that leads to headaches.
Poor ergonomics: Sitting and performing repetitive movements (such as using a computer) all day can lead to muscle imbalances, postural issues, and repetitive strain injuries. Regular chiropractic visits can “tune up” your body like a car, undoing the problems caused by poor ergonomics.
Persistent neck pain: If your neck feels stiff or sore, or you have trouble turning your head, home remedies such as ice packs and massage can help. If your issues persist, though, a chiropractor can ease your pain and stiffness.
Ongoing lower back pain: Lower back pain is incredibly common, and it often resolves on its own. If it persists for more than six weeks, though, visit the chiropractor. Life is too short to spend it in pain.
Chronic pain in muscles or joints: Joint and muscle pain can indicate anything from athletic overtraining to rheumatoid arthritis. If you have pain that does not go away with home treatments, see the chiropractor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
