If you are experiencing headaches, back pain, digestion issues, or other joint pain, you may be an ideal candidate for chiropractic care. Many patients who have had these issues for years have not yet considered visiting a chiropractor to review their case.
Your back, neck, and spine are responsible for maintaining our overall posture. Besides bad posture, poor spine health also has the potential to cause problems that may not seem directly related to the spinal column.
The cause of both tension and migraine headaches can often be traced to the muscles in your back being injured or strained. When this type of pain occurs, many patients suggest taking pain medication to manage the immediate discomfort. However, if these headaches are caused by muscle strain related to issues with your spine, a chiropractic adjustment can help. An adjustment works to relieve muscle tension and could reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches. Headaches associated with back pain are one of the most common reasons that people visit a chiropractor.
Patients who have experienced severe or moderate back pain are typically open to a wide range of options to help reduce their discomfort. It should be no surprise that as medications or other therapies fall short of their expectations, a consultation with a surgeon is often the next step.
Reviewing your case with a chiropractor can postpone or even prevent the need for surgery. This often improves their overall quality of life since their body does not need to recover from an invasive procedure.
If you are experiencing any of the problems listed above, a chiropractic adjustment should be a consideration for your treatment. While multiple visits may be required, the health benefits and often immediate pain relief of chiropractic adjustments are definitely worth it. Please consult with your chiropractor to review your case and discuss your treatment options.
