Common Conditions Treated by Chiropractors
By Sara Butler
Chiropractic care has been adopted by millions of people over the last several decades and is now easily available and accessible to many Americans. But chiropractors don’t just treat back pain. In fact, you may be surprised by these common conditions treated quite often by chiropractors. If you suffer from these afflictions, don’t delay in coming into The Joint to speak to one of our chiropractors about it!
There are many different types of headaches people can suffer from, and they can range from mild and annoying to debilitating. For every type of a headache, there is a solution. The first step is to figure out with the help of your chiropractor what kind of headaches you may be suffering from. Common types of headaches experienced by people include:
- Tension headaches
- Migraine headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Sinus headaches
The source of your headaches may not be in your head at all, but in your spine in the form of a vertebra out of alignment. In this case, a spinal adjustment can help to relieve a headache at its source and get you on the road to wellness.
Shoulder pain is a common affliction for many people. It can be caused by damage to the shoulder joint, misalignment of the shoulder joint, or even a misalignment in the spine. Whatever the cause of the shoulder pain, your chiropractor at The Joint can track down its source and start treating it. They can also help to increase the range of motion of the joint to help you feel better and increase your flexibility.
Low Back Pain
A whopping 80 percent of people have a chance of experiencing low back pain at some point in their lives. It’s one of the most common conditions in the public at large, and also one many chiropractors spend a lot of time treating. One of the most common causes of lower back pain is a misalignment of the spine that hasn’t been treated. Once you begin seeing a chiropractor, you'll get a full spinal assessment in order to target any misalignments so you can get things put back into place.
Once your spine is aligned, you may notice fewer incidences of back pain, shoulder pain, and headaches! So, no matter what condition you suffer from, don’t assume a chiropractor can’t help you with it. Come into The Joint today for an assessment and start on the road to improved health and wellness!
