Sometimes physical pain is a temporary condition, caused by a mild strain or staying in one position for too long. This type of pain typically goes away on its own after a relatively short period of time, provided that whatever activity has caused the pain is no longer an issue.
But if your pain is chronic (persistent), and lasts for a long period of time, it may be time to consider chiropractic adjustments for relief. This is particularly true if you’ve been involved in a car accident or sustained a recent injury.
Here are a few examples of conditions that may be relieved by chiropractic adjustments:
- Limited range of motion
When you can’t turn your head or arms very far in either direction, chiropractic adjustments can help to restore mobility and relieve your pain by realigning bones and joints into proper position, allowing for restoration of optimal physical movement.
- Joint or muscle pain
Misalignment of the joints or over/underuse of the muscles can lead to pain and muscle spasms. Chiropractic adjustment can realign joints and relieve chronic pain caused by these conditions.
- Chronic headaches
When vertebrae are misaligned or blood flow is impeded, migraines, cluster or tension headaches can occur. Chiropractic adjustment can realign the vertebrae and restore proper oxygen flow to help relieve pain and decrease the frequency of these types of headaches.
- Lower back pain
Chronic back pain is one of the most common reasons patients consult with a chiropractor. Realignment of the vertebrae is known to alleviate many painful issues, such as muscle tightness and spasm, limited range of motion and sciatica.
- Shooting pain, tingling or weakness that radiates down the legs
These types of pain may be the result of herniated (or slipped) disc or a pinched nerve. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, professional chiropractic consultation is recommended, as these may also be indicative of a more serious underlying condition.
There are many other chronic pain conditions that can be relieved by chiropractic adjustment. This non-invasive holistic treatment option has been proven effective for improving mobility and blood flow, as well as reducing pain, inflammation and muscle spasm.
When you’re experiencing chronic pain symptoms, it’s best not to guess whether or not you should seek chiropractic care. A simple initial consultation with a chiropractic care specialist can address any questions you may have about your condition.
