When Do You Need a Chiropractor?
By Sara Butler
If you were to ask the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic when you need a chiropractor, then their answer would be all the time! But if you're new to the world of chiropractic, then you may be wondering what types of symptoms warrant a visit. Here's a list of symptoms that you can work with your chiropractor at The Joint to treat.
Back pain symptoms can vary widely from person to person, but it's important to understand that pain is your body's way of sending you a signal something isn't right. Don't ignore it! 35 million people in the United States visit the chiropractor each year according to the American Chiropractic Association. Many of those people end up in the chiropractor's office due to back pain -- it's simply that common.
Car accidents are traumatic events for your car and your body. It's easy to spot the damage to your vehicle, but not so easy to spot the damage to your body. In fact, most injuries that occur during even low-speed automobile accidents may not show up right away. That's why the chiropractors at The Joint suggest that you see a chiropractor after any type of fender bender to ensure that everything is with your neck and spine.
If you suffer from headaches on a regular basis, the pain may not be the result of something going on in your head. Many types of headaches can be the result of things such as poor posture, muscle tension, joint dysfunction or restriction, and spinal issues. When you see a chiropractor at The Joint for your headaches, they can work with you to find the root cause of your headaches and treat it, not just your symptoms.
Pain in the Knee
Knee pain is commonly caused by tight muscles in the legs, such as the hamstring, as well as damage to ligaments of the knee, biomechanical problems, or joint dysfunctions that may be the result of dysfunction in the lower back and hips. If you are having issues with knee pain, see the chiropractor to help you determine the cause.
Neck pain can occur for a myriad of reasons, one of which is joint restriction or dysfunctions that can be addressed by the chiropractor. The nerve interference must be relieved and issue fixed with hands-on chiropractic adjustments if you hope to find relief.
