FAQ: What Common Conditions do Chiropractors Treat?
The most common conditions that our Chiropractors treat are sports injuries, work-related injuries, and auto accident injuries. Our non-invasive treatment can help prevent long-term suffering. Treatment often prevents re-injury of the neck, back, shoulder, knee, ankle and various other joints.
Many sports-related injuries leave athletes with tears, sprains, and tension all over their body. Our chiropractors can change that with our specialized treatments. Our staff is skilled in manual adjustment of the spine. In doing this, the bones align and balance, which relieves pressure in the body. Consequentially, this helps athletes to feel looser as they run, jump, or do any other movement that can be strenuous on their spine. It is our goal to restore or improve joint function and reduce any joint inflammation and pain.
If you’re sitting at a desk or on your feet all day for work, you could easily injure yourself. Contrary to common belief, strenuous activity such as lifting heavy objects is not the only way to injure yourself at work. For instance, sitting all day can cause you to slouch, leaving you with back and shoulder pain. If you are stressed, you could begin experiencing tense muscles. Our chiropractors use treatments such as spinal manipulation to treat those who are experiencing work-related back and neck pain. Additionally, studies have shown that those who complete chiropractic treatment will begin to feel the results shortly after their first treatment and long after. Therefore, resulting in most patients not having to miss any more days of work for their pain.
Chiropractic treatment is the most effective and non-invasive alternative to surgery or medication. Many patients who have been in an auto accident experience symptoms of whiplash and/or inflammation in ligaments and muscles. With chiropractic treatment, our experts use spinal manipulation since it releases an anti-inflammatory to reduce the inflammation and pain symptoms. After some time, patients who have been in an auto accident may also develop scar tissue, which can cause stiffness. Our doctors will target these areas with chiropractic treatment to break up the scar tissue to get the patient feeling better and heal at a faster rate than not receiving treatment. Additionally, treatment courses can be adjusted accordingly for each patient and the pain they are experiencing.
