Why Choose Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective method of overcoming many common health issues. It is best known as a noninvasive treatment for headaches, back pain and sciatica, but it is effective in correcting a far greater range of issues than these. The following are examples of the conditions that chiropractic treats.
What Conditions Can Chiropractic Treat?
Approximately one out of 25 American schoolchildren have ADHD, which can hinder a healthy childhood. Although the exact cause of ADHD is unknown, there are a number of ways chiropractic can help eliminate stresses on your child’s nervous system.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist, typically as the result of repetitive use or prolonged computer activity. Chiropractic treatment, in conjunction with other therapies, can in most cases effectively alleviate and eventually eliminate the symptoms of CTS.
Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are abruptly thrown forward then backward. This results in damage to muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues. If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, a thorough chiropractic exam and treatment plan should be performed to avoid long-term complications.
Back and Neck Pain
Because of their delicate structure, the neck and back are particularly prone to injury, yet symptoms may not manifest themselves in their place of origin. Major studies have shown that chiropractic care for back and neck pain is more effective, less expensive and has better long-term outcomes than any other treatment.
An ear infection is usually caused when bacteria or viruses enter the inner ear. Rather than treatment that tries to stop the infection, a noninvasive chiropractic approach addresses the problem by restoring normal ear function, letting the body correct itself naturally.
Fibromyalgia causes muscles to lose natural pliability, resulting in a loss of movement in the spine, which in turn further tightens muscles in a painful, vicious cycle. Because fibromyalgia can reduce muscles’ healing ability, gentler methods of treatment are preferable. Regular weekly chiropractic adjustments serve to effectively maintain muscle mobility and relaxation.
Headaches can result from a wide variety of causes, but the majority of recurrent headaches are either tension or migraine headaches. Chiropractic care is highly effective at treating headaches by adjusting the cervical spine to correct misalignments and relieve muscle tension.
The shift in center of gravity and added weight during pregnancy place a lot of stress on a woman’s body. These problems may be further exacerbated by a preexisting condition. Chiropractic care can relieve and even prevent the pain and discomfort frequently experienced throughout pregnancy, and creates an environment for safer, easier delivery.
