In many studies, chiropractic care has been found to be an effective alternative healing method for low back pain. The methods help to improve common strains and sprains of the lower back that individuals experience from work tasks, athletic activities and home projects.
Neck pain is a common problem that can be caused by tasks that involve working overhead, by holding the head in the same position. “Text neck” is a condition that is becoming common, which involves strain on muscles and vertebrae from looking down at cell phones for long periods. These problems can often be resolved with adjustment of the cervical area of the spine and massage to relieve discomfort on neck muscles.
Headaches & Migraines
Frequent headaches can be improved by manual adjustment of the upper spine and massage to improve circulation. Migraine headaches, which can be either seasonal or very frequent, often respond well to adjustment and corrective exercises for the neck.
Sciatica is a condition that involves the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower spine, through the pelvis and down the backs of the legs. Chiropractic treatment of the lower spine can relieve pressure on this nerve, to relieve pain, numbness, and weakness that often occur with the condition.
Pinched nerves can occur in the shoulder, neck, arm that can lead to chronic discomfort, weakness, and numbness in affected areas. A combination of spinal manipulation and massage therapy, to relieve pressure on nerves and improve circulation to the area, can often provide an improvement in nerve function.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help These Conditions
Spinal manipulation by a professional chiropractor re-aligns the vertebrae of the spine, to restore normal function. The methods can relieve pressure on muscles and nerves, return spinal discs to their normal position and improve flexibility and range of motion. Corrective exercise helps to strengthen supporting muscles and improve mobility. Massage therapy can be used along with chiropractic techniques to speed healing of soft tissues, by improving circulation and the production of natural healing chemicals.
