Back and Spine Pain
Back and spinal pain have been linked to heavy carrying, sports injuries, slips and falls, prolong sitting, and even pregnancy.
Whatever the cause may be, most can be traced back to a compromise spinal alignment causing stress and irritation of surrounding muscles, joints, and nerves.
- persistent or reoccurring pain
- muscle stiffness
- restrictive motion
Spondylosis, Slipped Disc, Sciatica
Spondylosis is the result of chronic spinal issues and misalignments left uncorrected.
Over time, these injuries causes mechanical stress to the disc, vertebrae, nerve of the affected area and leads to pre-mature degeneration.
This weakens the spine and causes disc to “slip” and bone spurs to form.
- back pain
- shooting pain down the leg
Knee and Joint Pain
Joint injuries (including the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, or ankle) can follow sports injuries, a repetitive motion injury, or a slip and fall.
Through time, if not corrected properly, it can cause misalignment and damages to adjacent joints as you try to compensate for the injured area.
- pain with activity
- weakness in joint
- restrictive range of motion
- joint clicking
Sports injuries can occur due to trauma or poor biomechanics leading to degenerative changes.
Many world-class athletes utilise Chiropractic care, not only to recover from injuries, but also to improve their biomechanics and help them achieve higher performance.
- non-resolving injuries
- decreasing sports performance
- asymmetric motion
Neck and Shoulder Ache
Neck and shoulder aches is typically the result of chronic poor posture or whiplash injury.
This can cause the bones of the neck to misalign, stressing the disc, nerve, and muscles of the neck.
If allowed to progress, it can lead to numbness and tingling to the arms and hands and also headaches.
- constant shoulder tension
- frequent stiff neck
- limited neck motion
Headaches and Migraine
Headaches are common, but they are certainly not normal.
They are usually caused by nerve compression at the neck or irritation of certain muscles in the neck causing referral pain.
Medication provides temporary relief but does not correct the underlying cause of the problem.
- triggered by stress
- accompanies neck and shoulder tension
Numbness and Tingling
Numbness of the hands and feet typically results from conditions that affect the nerves that supplies the area.
It is often associated with nerves being “pinched” in the spine due to a misalign vertebrae, slipped disc, or spinal degeneration.
Urgent care is important to prevent long term nerve damage.
- pins and needles
- burning sensation
- muscle wasting
Scoliosis and Postural Distortion
Scoliosis is a misalignment of the spine where it curves side to side.
Due to the progressive nature of the condition, it is crucial that it is detected and treated at an early age.
With early Chiropractic intervention, most progression can be stopped, and hard bracing and surgery can be avoided.
- uneven shoulders
- head/body lean
- rib humping
- breathing difficulties
- persistent spinal pain
There is NO REASON to endure ongoing aches and pain… Come feel the Chiropractic difference today!
Chiropractic has been shown to:
- Relieve pain without the use of drugs or surgery
- Remove nerve interference and restore normal nerve flow
- Keep arthritic joints mobile and slow down further degeneration
- Improve overall biomechanics and athletic performance
It is also suitable and safe for every one of all ages.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the treatment going to hurt?
No. On the contrary, most people feel significant improvements within the first week of treatment; less pain and stiffness, improved joint motion, more restful sleep at night, and more energy during the day.
Can a person who had back surgery see a Chiropractor?
Yes. It’s an unfortunate fact that up to half of those who had spinal surgery discover a return of their original symptoms months or years later. Chiropractic may help prevent repeated back surgeries, and in fact, if it was utilized initially, back surgeries can often be avoided in the first place.
