Athletic/Sports Injuries

Chiropractors treat and helps prevent injuries of the body. They’re very skilled in adjusting the spine, making sure that all the bones are lined up properly and balanced. If you’re an athlete, you know how important it is for your body to function correctly that’s why chiropractors are the best choice for you. Athletes are prone to injuries because they tend to force themselves without warming up properly. Commonly, sports injuries happen when there’s a traumatic force to the joint that causes it. That’s when chiropractors come in. They can help relieve the pain and help them heal faster after an injury. It’s also suggested to visit your chiropractors regularly for quicker recovery and better overall performance.

 

Back Pain

Back pain has many causes. Fortunately, chiropractors are trained to diagnose and properly manage back pains. As always, chiropractors need to conduct a full examination to determine the right treatment that’s appropriate for you. If you feel the stiffness, cramping or pain after prolonged inactivity; those are only a few of the symptoms of back pain so it’ll be best to consult a chiropractor already to get you checked as soon as possible. The treatment may involve one or more adjustments depending on the case. The chiropractor will manipulate the joints, using a controlled force to treat the pain and allow the affected area to heal itself naturally.

 

Hip Pain

Patients usually visit a chiropractor because of hip pain. This can be due to injuries, arthritis or conditions that develop such as strains and osteoarthritis. Before treating the concern, the chiropractor will have to conduct a careful physical examination first. Then they’ll have to create a personalized treatment plan depending on the severity of your case. Once the cause is already determined, chiropractic adjustments could help. By treating the pain naturally, patients don’t have to go through medications or surgery.

 

Knee Pain

Knee pain can be very difficult. You use your knees to climb up the stairs, walk from one place to another or even just to get up from bed so knee pain has a negative impact on your ability to function normally. Just because you’re in pain doesn’t mean you have to take in addictive pain medications already. Most people prefer treating this kind of pain naturally by visiting their chiropractor. Chiropractors will handle the problem depending on each patient and their specific conditions. So the type of treatment that’s appropriate for one person doesn’t mean it’ll work for the other patient as well that’s why complete examination should be conducted first to figure out the cause and provide the right resolution.

 

Migraine/Headache

Headaches, especially migraines can be draining. The severe pain may result to nausea, and extreme sensitivity to light/sound that may last for hours. This usually affects only one side of your head/eye. Before you decide to take pain medications, it’ll be best to contact a chiropractor. Chiropractic doesn’t require any medications or surgery to treat a patient. Studies have found that most migraines are caused by a small misalignment in the spine which will cause the nerves and muscles to become inflamed which is why chiropractors are the best people to visit when this happens. Once they fixed the misalignment, the pain should go away.

 

Osteoarthritis

This is the most common form of arthritis. This is basically the normal wearing and tearing of the body’s joints which results to mild to severe pain. It usually affects the weight-bearing joints like the spine, hips, knees and ankles. It won’t be something that you’ll get right away; you won’t even feel the pain as well. But eventually you will and don’t wait for that to happen before you visit the chiropractor. Chiropractors are good at both manipulating and massaging the joint and catching the early signs of a possible joint damage that may lead to osteoarthritis. Once it’s determined, you may contact a physician which will most likely refer you to an Orthopedist. This is very important in order for the specialists to be able to give you the proper treatment.

 

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is not arthritis by feels very similar. Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the joint while osteoporosis is the loss of bone mass which increases the risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is a painless condition which becomes painful if one encountered a fracture or a broken bone. Chiropractic care prevents osteoporosis to happen and if it does, it can relieve the pain generated by osteoporosis which may also protect the clients from possible fractures by improving balance, muscle tone, range of motion and joint mobility. Just make sure to inform your doctor first before you consult a chiropractor.

 

Pinched Nerves

Chiropractic therapy is very helpful when it comes to treating pinched nerves. A pinched nerve on the neck may radiate down the arm; pinched nerve on the lower back may radiate to the leg. Chiropractors job helps relieve the pain by realigning the bones, relaxing the muscles and lessening the pressure on the nerves. So when rest is not helping a pinched nerve anymore, it’ll be best to consult a chiropractor which will perform a full examination to determine what the cause of the pain is. Once it’s already diagnosed, the chiropractor will discuss the treatment with you and will recommend exercises and practices that will not only solve the problem but prevent it from happening again.

 

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Sacroiliac joint is the large, boomerang shaped joint found in the pelvis. If you feel a sharp, knifelike pain in the low back or pain that is reduced if you walk but hurts even more while you’re sitting, you might already have sacroiliac joint injury. Chiropractors will treat the injury through the use of spinal adjusting to reposition the joint to its right position in order for the healing process to start and work properly.

 

Shin Splints

If you run regularly, you might have experienced this painful condition in the lower leg. If that happens, you might have to walk around in crutches to avoid triggering the pain even more but in most cases, it’s just really a bother. This is usually experienced by athletes, dancers or even anyone who just enjoys staying active. Overuse of the muscles in the shin area is what usually causes this to happen. Chiropractic care can both help it heal and relieve the pain as well. But as always, treatment varies from patient to patient but will often include chiropractic adjustments.

 

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is one of the very common complaints in chiropractic practice as there are many causes of the problem. So if the pain is recurring, you’re unable to raise your arm without it hurting or the pain is already causing a fever, then you definitely will have to consult a chiropractor so we can diagnose the problem for you. Proper diagnosis will be able to determine the correct treatment as well so it’s important that you contact a chiropractor that you trust. Avoid taking painkillers right away, if the issue can be resolved as natural as possible, it’s best to take that route so give your chiropractor a call first so they can help you figure out the solution.

 

Whiplash

A whiplash refers to the damage done to the neck as the result of sudden force and movements. It can cause neck pain as well as limited movement in your neck. As always, the chiropractor will examine your entire spine to make sure that none of the other regions are affected. Chiropractors use gentle adjustments to restore spinal function followed by an exercise program to guarantee that you will recover naturally.
