From time to time we all experience some levels of pain, discomfort, or mobility issues that could use some help from a chiropractic professional. Oftentimes, individuals considering a visit to the chiropractor may not be fully aware of all of the issues and ailments that a chiropractic adjustment can address. Most people automatically connect chiropractors to issues such as neck and back pain that may arise from an accident or injury. While a chiropractor is an excellent choice for helping patients with these common issues, it is important to also know there are a number of different ailments and conditions flying under the radar that can also greatly improve as a result of regular chiropractic adjustments.
What is a Chiropractor?
In order to see how a chiropractor can help to improve your quality of life, it is important to understand exactly what a chiropractor is and does. A chiropractor is a healthcare professional who uses a variety of techniques and methods including the manipulation and adjustment of your spine and joints to address concerns such as pain, mobility issues, and discomfort. The non-invasive adjustment and manipulation techniques used by chiropractors are considered safe and effective treatments for a number of health conditions which can affect both children and adults.
How Can Smerglia Chiropractic Help You?
Chiropractors address a number of issues affecting individuals both directly and indirectly. Our patients are often pleasantly surprised when an adjustment or treatment leads to resolution of symptoms that they believed to be unrelated to their targeted areas of concern. Whether it is following an accident resulting in injury, overuse from training or work, or issues with posture or sleeping positions, a consultation with a chiropractor can help you get the relief you need. Following your evaluation with a chiropractor, we can discuss areas of concern that may be contributing to your day-to-day pain.
Chiropractic Solutions for A Variety of Issues
- Musculoskeletal Disorders — This category of conditions is the most well-known area of treatment by chiropractors including issues such as strains, sprains, tendinitis, carpal tunnel, herniation, and chronic pain stemming from injuries whether accidental, through sport, or underlying conditions.
- Central Nervous System — Your body is connected through a complex system of nerves, your brain, and the spinal cord. When you are experiencing issues throughout your body these issues oftentimes are indirectly affected by the state of your central nervous system. Through adjustments and manipulations, chiropractors can help optimize your body and improve function and mobility throughout various areas of your body including your digestive system.
- Functionality of Joints & Extremities — Whether through sport, work, or everyday routine, our joints and extremities are under immense pressure and strain. This can lead to misalignments, pain, and discomfort in joints such as the ankles, wrists, knees, and shoulders which can be targeted through specific chiropractic treatment.
- Headaches & Migraines — Chiropractic treatment is a popular and effective option for individuals that suffer from chronic headaches and migraines that originate from a problem in the neck or back such as cervicogenic headaches.
