Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic Adjustments or manipulation is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. This is needed so chiropractors can realign the vertebrae that have moved out of its place. So is it your first time to visit a chiropractor? Then you might be missing out! The best thing about chiropractic care is it’s drug-free and surgery-free as well so you don’t have to go under the knife to be healed.

 

Common Reasons Why People Seek Chiropractic Adjustments

  • Misalignment of vertebra because of an accident

  • Misalignment because of poor posture

  • Join swelling

  • Inflammatory response caused by poor diet or stress

  • Osteoporosis or progressive changes of the spine

  • Trigger points and tight back muscles that caused the vertebrae to be out of place

 

Chiropractors adjust subluxations. So if you currently just got in an accident and you feel like a part of your body might be misaligned, it’ll be best to contact a good chiropractor to fix the issue for you before it gets worse.

 

Cold Laser Therapy: Cold Laser Therapy is a newer procedure that has its pros and cons. It is mainly used for tissue repair and relief from pain or inflammation. You don’t need to go under medication as well and it’s completely painless. Those are the main reasons why people prefer this treatment than any other procedure. It doesn’t have any serious side effects especially if it’s used properly by a doctor so it’s guaranteed to be safe.

 

Few Common Uses for Cold Laser Therapy

  • Minor injuries or sprains

  • Inflammation

  • Aches and Pains etc.,

 

Cold Laser Therapy is definitely a good treatment to go for but it has its disadvantages. One main disadvantage of this procedure is it’s not an instant cure. The first treatment won’t fix your problem right away. It takes a series of treatments, usually around 8 to 30 treatments, depending on the severity of your case.

 

Custom Foot Orthotics: Orthotics help with issues related to walking and alignment. It realigns the bones in the foot and ankle which in the end will take pressure to other parts of your body as well. So when appropriately prescribed, orthotics can decrease pain, not only in the foot, but in other parts of your body as well like the knee, hip and even your lower back. It can be used as often as wanted to take further stress of the body.

 

Few Common Symptoms That May Indicate Misalignment of the Feet

  • Flatfeet

  • Frequent ankle sprains

  • Shin pain

  • Chronic heel

  • Abnormal shoe wear etc.,

 

Naturally, the feet shouldn’t be in pain and if it is, that only means that there’s something wrong with it. If the pain is not properly and immediately treated, there’s a possibility that it might get worse. So contact us today for a consultation!

 

X-Ray: Not to know is to guess and Dr. Gray will never guess at his patient's health.  At our Clinic, we take only the X-rays we need so that we can see what is actually going on with our patient's spine.  I know that everyone is concerned about radiation exposure but by using the latest X-ray equipment, our X-rays will typically give less radiation to your body than a bad sunburn does.

 

Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy is a procedure that uses low temperatures to treat a variety of tissue damage. A few of its goal is to increase cellular survival and to decrease pain and inflammation. They use the cold temperature for its health benefits.

 

Some of the Many Benefits of Cryotherapy

  • Heal injuries

  • Improve joint function

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Relieves chronic pain and fatigue

  • Increase Metabolism

  • Increase performance level

  • Improve circulation etc.,

 

Not everyone is going to be willing to be in temperatures as low as negative 250 degrees Fahrenheit. But something as effective as Cryotherapy, that endorses several health benefits without breaking the bank, you might have to make an exception. It only has a couple of known minor side effects like numbness or tingling, sometimes redness and irritation of the skin as well but these are only temporary.

 

Interferential Electro-Therapy: Interferential Electro-Therapy, also known as interferential therapy, is a treatment used for patients suffering from painful soft tissue conditions like spasms and strains. This works by sending low-frequency electrical pulses to the damaged tissue. Many prefer this treatment as an alternative to pain medication. The therapy also makes most patient feel comfortable during the procedure. It’s definitely a painless treatment for pain.

Workers’ Compensation: Were you in a recent accident at work but doesn’t want to take pain pills and go through surgery to fix it? Then it may be the best time to try the benefits of chiropractic. There are issues that medical doctors may have missed so it’s best to locate the cause of the issue first then find the right resolution for it.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a single treatment or several procedures, we at Gray Chiropractic Clinic of Mahomet, IL strives to help you reach your body’s best performance level without the pain and the addictive medications.

 

Car Accident: No one wants to be in a car accident. It will not only ruin your car, but will also put your life, both physically and emotionally at risk. The effect on your car is nothing compared to the pain it can cause you depending on the impact of the accident. So before you decide to go back to normal after you already recovered from the accident, it’ll be best to visit a chiropractor to make sure that your body is ready to start functioning again.

 

There are cases where in medical doctors missed something that’s essential to be looked at for your full recovery. It doesn’t matter if it’s just a minor stiff neck, traumas from accidents like this is always suggested to be checked thoroughly before you make sudden actions. So make sure to see your chiropractor to get a full examination.

 

Sports Injury: Athletes tend to push their body to its limits. With all the preparations and rough trainings to be able to successfully finish every obstacle that they have to go through to get that shining reward; they usually end up with a beaten, tired and worn out body caused by a long days’ work. And that’s when chiropractors come to play. Chiropractors have specific training in determining and treating injuries of athletes. They can even treat athletes much better than a medical doctor; teaching them on how to prevent future injuries. Medical doctors do not treat the body as a unified system; they treat each injury separately causing these athletes to either be frequently on the sidelines or constantly requiring ice packs and pain medications at the end of the day.

 

Chiropractors make sure that all pieces of the athletes’ body will work as one. They focuses more on the muscles, spines, joints, nerves and tendons which helps their body to work in its full potential in the healthiest way possible. So if you are an athlete, make sure to make it a habit to visit a chiropractor. Let us help you reach your dreams without breaking yourself in the process.
