What are Some of the Conditions a Chiropractor Can Treat?

Everyone knows one person who goes to a chiropractor or who has gone to a chiropractor. What everyone talks about is how great the feeling is of having the bones and joints cracked or popped or being stretched properly. While yes, most people enjoy the experience, they don’t just go to get a nice back cracking, although, we are sure there are a few people here and there who do that. If you have never been to a chiropractor and are looking into it, then you may be wondering what kind of conditions and pain they can even treat. There are two answers to this question, the short answer, and the long answer. The short answer is that chiropractors can treat anything that is influenced or caused by the spine. But for the more specific answer, you are going to have to continue reading below. But whatever your condition is or wherever your pain is, you can rest assured that you are in good hands at South Florida Spine and Joint Center.

Migraine Headaches

This one may come as a shock to some. With chiropractors being predominantly known for the back and body, it may be surprising to hear that they can also treat parts of the body above the shoulders, namely the head. This is because migraines are oftentimes caused by spinal issues. This may come as an even bigger shock as many people assume their migraine is a temporary problem caused by loud noises or dehydration. However, with a chiropractor adjustment, you can find some relief. The adjustment will relieve some of the built-up pressure that is being placed on the nervous system, making the spinal health improved in general, thus improving the parts of the body that are affected such as the head.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is by far one of the worst problems to deal with. It’s persistent and frustrating. You may feel as if you have tried everything but trust us when we say you haven’t truly tried everything for it until you see a chiropractor. This is because chronic pain is a nervous system problem. Sure, it may not be fully cured or stopped after one appointment, or even several appointments. But, the point is that you will feel much better and be relieved from a lot of the pain. We even offer treatments through hand movements that can result in better circulation. Another key to relieving chronic pain for many patients.

Sciatica

Sciatica is not the most common kind of pain; however, to those, it affects it is very real to them. This pain is one that starts in the buttocks or legs and shoots up. Not only is sitting painful but also normal activities such as standing or walking. It truly can make daily life more difficult for many. The thing about this condition is that it isn’t even the pain that makes it difficult, but the constant numbness and weakness in the legs that patients feel. While the pain does travel throughout the body, it can be fixed with one body part being approach: the spine. With as simple realignment the patient can feel a lot of relief and resume daily activities with significantly less pain. Once the spinal pressure is relieved the body will be less tense and see a reduction in pain. This treatment has also been known to help patients with other symptoms such as anxiety.
