When are chiropractic services necessary?
Chiropractic services can be beneficial at MANY points in life. Maybe you’re simply looking for a more natural method of treating your health concerns. Or maybe other treatment options didn’t work for you. A chiropractor, who attains a doctorate-level degree in their field, can provide services and solutions that can result in effective and gentle treatment.
Chronic/ Recurring Back Pain
Chiropractic services can be a great idea if you suffer from persistent back pain. Bad posture, over-activity, and hyper-repetitiveness in your work (i.e. typing all day!) can result in recurring back pain. Your chiropractic doctor can help realign damage to the spine caused by practicing too many activities consistently, as we often do in our day-to-day lives. If your job involves heavy lifting, prolonged hours sitting at a desk, or too much time on your feet, a chiropractor can utilize adjustments and their skilled experience to help alleviate back pain. They can also recommend exercises and tools to help minimize your discomfort during everyday activity.
Bad posture, over-activity, and your work may cause recurring back pain. Your chiropractor should help with pain in your neck or back caused by practicing too many extracurricular activities, e.g., intense exercises, sports, or excessive yard work.
An Accident or Other Injuries
Chiropractors like ours at BC + PT can be seen for trauma of the back or neck due to a car accident. Neck injuries can cause damage in other areas of the body, including nerve and brain trauma. Even if it’s just a slight fender bender, it’s important to consult a physician or chiropractor to get checked out!
Another injury popular among our patients is a sports injury, which becomes more prevalent as we age. If you’re regularly involved in physical exercise or sports, routine spinal adjustments can ease pain and improve your overall performance. Visiting a chiropractor when you have a sports-related injury can help regulate pain and potentially reduce the long-term impact of leaving that injury untreated.
Tingling or Numbness in Your Legs
Chiropractic services are commonly employed to address tingling or numbness in your legs. Spinal problems may be the culprit in triggering uncomfortable pain and tingling throughout your body. Your spine connects to everything as it’s the center of your body. If your spine gets out of alignment, you could feel the aftereffects in your limbs. A pinched nerve/ slipped disc might also lead to leg numbness or pain. Spinal adjustments, stretches, and massages can often relax your muscles and help alleviate leg discomfort.
So, if you have tingling, numbness, or sharp pain in your legs, there’s a possibility that something is misaligned in your spine. Your chiropractor can help! They’re trained to provide relief from this numb or tingling sensation, and you may be able to skip the over-the-counter pain relievers by visiting a chiropractor first.
Regardless of your reason or situation, chiropractic services may be essential to your continued good health. Chiropractic services offer numerous advantages, and although you might only wish to treat a specific body area, you may experience the benefits all over! Our doctors at BC + PT are trained in many chiropractic modalities, from a classic adjustment to e-stimulation and more!
