Do you have back and/or neck pain on a regular basis? The problem could lie with a misalignment of your spine. Your spine, back and neck are all connected. A problem with one could cause many problems with the others. In many cases, the delicate nerves along your spine are compressed or injured, causing you chronic pain, neuropathy issues and more. However, chiropractic care can help you with your spine or neck disorder, injury or even disease. Find out how a few simple adjustments can have you feeling like new again!
The body should follow a straight line. Your skeleton is designed in a way that all the bones should fit together smoothly in a straight line. You have 33 vertebrae bones in your body. These are the jagged-looking bones that make up your spinal column. They are very thick in order to protect your central nervous system, which is the spinal cord and brain. Those vertebrae are able to move and pivot because of the joints and cartilage between them.
Over time with physical activity, wear and tear from age, and injuries, those vertebrae can go out of alignment. Sometimes the problem lies with the vertebrae themselves, or a nerve or disc pokes out of its usual alignment. This can create intense pressure and pain in patients. The body was meant to align in a specific way to make movement possible and pain-free. Pain, swelling, inflammation, an inability to move, muscle atrophy and more can happen when the spine and back go out of alignment.
We can provide patients with proper alignment to their bodies through manipulating the back and spine through gentle movements. Chiropractic physicians diagnose and treat patients that have health problems associated with the body’s muscular, nervous and skeletal systems. Many of those problems stem from the body’s misalignment. Nerve problems may simply be caused by a vertebrae putting too much pressure on a nerve. That can be fixed through spinal re-adjustments.
There are countless spine and neck disorders that happen to patients because of misalignment and injury. Here are a few of the most common ones:
These spine and neck disorders can be completely debilitating to many patients. However, they can be treated with proper chiropractic care through professionals trained in chiropractic medicine. Many chiropractic centers offer the hands-on method of chiropractic care, which can be very effective for correcting spine and neck disorders. However, some patients don’t like the cracking or popping noises that can happen with spinal readjustment. That is why our center offers other options such as:
Many people think surgery is the only way to fix back or spine and neck disorders. However, chiropractic care is incredibly effective for resolving spine and neck disorders without anything invasive. Patients often feel much better with their first adjustment. If you don’t believe it, try it for yourself! We recommend that patients always opt for non-invasive treatments for spine and neck disorders before they resort to very expensive surgeries.
