There are many reasons why patients come to our doctors in order to receive chiropractic care. According to the American Chiropractic Association, lower back pain is the most common reason why people seek chiropractic treatments. When it comes to lower back pain, chiropractic is often the primary type of treatment that you may receive. You may also consider chiropractic care for neck or shoulder pain, a pinched nerve, numbness or tingling after an auto accident or to treat frequent headaches caused by stress and misalignment of your spine.
How a Chiropractic Adjustment Works
To perform a chiropractic adjustment on your spine, our doctors may use a variety of techniques. The hands-on techniques are some of the most common ways to perform a chiropractic adjustment. Our chiropractors use hands-on techniques such as pressure of their hands at a particular point along or near one of your vertebrae. The pressure or sudden push can help to realign a vertebral disk. Our doctors also use deep tissue massage as a way to help get your spine back into alignment and relieve pressure that is irritating a nerve.
When to Consider Chiropractic Care
You may consider chiropractic care from our doctors any time that you have an acute or chronic pain anywhere in your back or neck. Our doctors can see you as often as needed for a chiropractic adjustment. If you are under a lot of stress and are experiencing tension headaches and tightness in your neck and shoulder areas, our chiropractors can perform an adjustment that will help to loosen the tight muscles and get your spine back in its proper position. You may also consider chiropractic care if you experience whiplash after an auto accident. An injury from a slip and fall or a pinched nerve in your neck are also common reasons to come to our chiropractors for care.
Benefits of Receiving Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care has no side effects and can be performed along with medical treatments such as anti-inflammatory medications to help control your pain. The chiropractic care provided by our doctors also helps to promote your body’s own ability to heal itself after an injury. Chiropractic care also provides you with benefits including easing pain in your neck, shoulders and back after injuries.
