Finding Out if Chiropractic Care Is Right for You
Many people are looking for an alternative for pain relief other than taking medications or surgery. Chiropractors are the right professionals to tell you whether chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition. At Vida Integrated Health , we use treatments such as rehabilitation exercises, physical therapy modalities, joint manipulation, soft tissue manipulation, and manual therapy to address each patient’s unique condition. Here are signs that chiropractic care is right for you.
You Experience Symptoms That Indicate Poor Spinal Health
If you suffer from pain that will not go away or completely subside, it could indicate spinal trouble. When you struggle to perform simple activities like wearing shoes, putting on a seatbelt, picking up items from the floor, arrange for a chiropractic visit.
Poor spinal health can cause many unwanted symptoms, including headaches, insomnia, fatigue, difficulty moving, clouded memory, and joint pain.
If you experience three or more of these symptoms, consider visiting a chiropractor at Vida Integrated Health. We will assess your condition and identify the best therapies and treatments to get your life back on track.
You Are Experiencing Chronic Back Pain
Chronic back pain is the most common sign that you need to arrange a chiropractic visit. Multiple factors can lead to back pain, like standing on your feet for too long every day, posture, and the kind of work you do.
People often ignore back pain and hope it will go away with time. However, consider chiropractic care if back pain hinders your ability to perform your favorite activities or get through the day.
Chiropractors at Vida Integrated Health have vast expertise in treating back pain, especially in the lower back area. They are trained to identify the cause and perform medical-free and non-surgical therapies.
Many of our chiropractors use soft tissue therapy to tighten and relax sore muscles and muscle therapy to regain motion in a joint that is not moving.
You Suffer From Headaches
Tension headaches are the most common cause of pain behind the neck or head. Bad posture and stress can result in tension headaches.
To relieve this kind of pain, your chiropractor may suggest stretching exercises to adjust your neck. They will also advise you on healthy ways to relieve your headaches and stress, including proper body and posture mechanics.
If you suffer from migraine headaches, they will use chiropractic spinal manipulations to reduce pain and decrease migraine frequency. Some food can also trigger migraines like cultured dairy products, chocolate, baked goods with yeast, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, etc. Our chiropractors may also recommend nutritional changes to your diet to treat migraines.
You Have Neck Pain
Sitting for too long at your desk or dealing with a whiplash injury from a car accident can cause stiffness and neck pain. The pain can be worse when you attempt to turn your head. Your chiropractor will also check if other regions have been affected, including the lower back (lumbar) and mid-back (thoracic).
Before deciding on the most appropriate approach to treat the pain, they will conduct a thorough examination to know the specific cause. Your chiropractor may have to order an X-ray or MRI to know the exact cause of the pain. Chiropractic treatments that can help eliminate neck pain include manual therapy, spinal manipulation, and options like inferential electrical stimulation.
You Have Muscle Pain
Muscle pain and muscle knots can cause joint restrictions and dysfunction. If the pain results from problems with the spine or joints, a chiropractor would be of great help. They will use hands-on chiropractic manipulation techniques to remove restrictions and dysfunction in the body.
Once the chiropractor deals with these issues, they will then start working on the knots through muscle therapy techniques. Muscle therapy involves different treatments to manipulate soft tissues and muscles to relieve pain. Chiropractic adjustments reduce nerve pressure that causes tingling sensation and pain.
If You Have Limited Range of Motion
Your body requires full range of motion for proper movement. Limited range of motion can result in discomfort or pain, making it hard to effortlessly move some of your body parts.
A medical condition, injury, or trauma can inhibit the range of motion. For example, if you suffer from shoulder or back pain, you may feel sore, tight, and stiff in those areas.
Chiropractic stretches and manipulations help realign your body to move as it should. Your selected chiropractor at Vida Integrated Helath may also recommend stretches and exercises to mobilize limited joints.
