Does Chiropractic Care Only Treat Back Pain

Does Chiropractic Care Only Treat Back Pain?

Chiropractors have a reputation for fixing backaches and spine-related problems. But they can help you with so much more. Chiropractic care deals with neuromuscular disorders. This method of treatment is built on the belief that the body can heal itself when placed under the right conditions.

Therefore, chiropractors can deal with many more problems than you think. Here are some issues they are trained to deal with:

Migraines and tension headaches

 

Headaches are a common occurrence in most of our lives. 1 in 20 adults experiences a headache every day! What’s more, there are over 150 kinds of headaches.

With the amount of screen time we get, due to our jobs or because of social media, we’re bound to suffer from some kind of headache or the other.

Migraines are one of the most severe headaches and over 38 million Americans suffer from them. When experiencing a migraine, patients often feel nauseous, are sensitive to light, experience blurry vision, and get an upset stomach.

Tension headaches, on the other hand, are more moderate on the pain scale. They occur for a couple of hours and are felt from the neck to the head and the back of the eyes. Tension headaches are triggered by stress, loud noises, and bright lights.

Since most headaches stem from tension in the neck, chiropractors have become quite popular for helping patients deal with them. Professional chiropractors perform spinal manipulation with the help of specialized equipment to improve a patient’s posture. This helps recalibrate the pressure on a person’s frame and alleviates stress on your back and neck.

Chiropractors also provide clients with valuable nutritional advice for healing. They often recommend vitamin and mineral rich foods to improve the functioning of your nervous system.

They also dish out valuable advice on posture, giving you exercises to reduce strain on your joints. Those living sedentary lifestyles due to desk jobs will especially benefit from their quick tips on wellbeing.

Stress

Stress - shelby county chiropractic

We feel stressed by many external forces, like relationships, our career, our health, and other circumstances out of our control. Stress can lead to anxiety, depression, fatigue, and ill-health, leading to a constant battle to feel better.

Chiropractors work mainly on the spine and nervous system of a patient. Regulating the flow of nerve impulses within the body can help manage stress in a healthier way.

The release of tension from the muscles regulates the pressure in the body. This allows a patient to feel more relaxed and stress-free. A professional will also recommend relaxation techniques and other methods to help you deal with chronic stress.
