Low Back Pain
Low back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek treatment from a chiropractor.
Research on spinal manipulation often focuses on low back pain. Some people with low back pain benefit from going to a chiropractor, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. Some research suggested people with low back pain got better relief from going to a chiropractor than from going to their family doctor.
Chiropractors often treat neck pain with neck manipulations. These are also called adjustments. In some cases, these neck adjustments—along with exercises—may work better for neck pain than pain medications. You may want to try a chiropractor if you have had neck pain for a long time that is not due to an injury. This type of neck pain may respond to chiropractic care.
You probably think about back and neck pain when you think about chiropractic care. However, a chiropractor might also be able to help you if you have a stiff or painful shoulder. Combined with laser therapy, people may have less pain and more movement after chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will stretch the muscles surrounding your shoulder and show you how to perform more stretches at home.
Everyone goes through stress. Although normal, stress can carry both physical and mental
health. Chiropractic can help. You begin to get less sleep and lose the ability to focus because your body is now in pain. A chiropractor can help loosen the tension you are feeling. With adjustments to the spine, your chiropractor restores your body to its natural balance.In addition, regular chiropractic adjustments can soothe the nervous system, and lessen the flight or fight response most people experience when stressed.
Research has shown that chiropractic spinal manipulations can decrease migraine frequency, decrease pain, and reduce the need for migraine medication. How this occurs is not known. The authors of the study suggest that chiropractic care reduces overall stress, which may, in turn reduce the effect of migraines. Triggers for migraine headaches may include certain foods. Your chiropractor can also give you advice on nutrition and some changes in your diet to help treat migraines and other types of headaches.
Most often, wear and tear on the knee joint causes osteoarthritis. This is a very common but very painful condition. Sports injury or accident is another cause of severe knee pain. Chiropractic care might help. It will definitely work better than knee exercises alone. Some people treated with chiropractic adjustment have less pain and better movement after a few weeks of treatment. Combined with laser therapy, great strides can be made.
