Do you have back pain that interferes with your ability to get through your day? That pain can be especially difficult to deal with if you have children, a full work schedule or even if you want to get out of bed. When back pain is not treated, it can worsen to the point where you can’t perform daily tasks or movements. That is definitely a point at which you want to seek chiropractic help. However, you actually want to seek chiropractic help way before your condition is that chronic. For athletes, pregnant women, those who exercise or patients that even want to relieve stress, chiropractic care can decrease pressure in the body and provide quicker healing to muscles and tissues.
Back pain is one of the most chronic form of pain that people experience in the U.S. The American Chiropractic Association reports that back pain is the leading cause of disability, especially among workers. It’s the most common reason for missed work and an estimated 80% of people will struggle with it at some point. More than 30 million Americans have chronic back pain that can make it difficult to perform even daily tasks.
Seeking chiropractic help for these issues can not only help you avoid surgery, but it can help you live a better life. Many people find benefits such as:
Chiropractors provide natural, drugless, non-surgical health treatments and rely on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities. Many medical professionals will recommend surgery or narcotic painkillers, both of which bring troubles of their own. Surgery can lead to nerve damage, climbing medical bills, months of recovery and more. Narcotics can lead to addiction, even with the first use. We skip those go-to methods that tend to mask pain or that don’t really treat the underlying issue.
When you have back pain, neuropathy symptoms, joint issues and more, we can use natural adjustments and soothing therapies to treat the real cause of your problems. A healthy spine should follow a straight line. However, many people have their spines and backs out of alignment. This places pressure on the joints, herniates and bulges discs, causes wear and tear, trigger points and more. When we decompress the spine through spinal decompression and provide spinal adjustments, you can feel relief during your chiropractic care.
Restoring natural alignment often relieves the pain and other symptoms that resisted more conventional treatments. The chiropractor applies a small amount of focused pressure to move vertebrae and to loosen joints that have become frozen in an incorrect position. Once the spine is aligned, it’s easier to access damaged nerves and to relieve muscle tension that is contributing to your discomfort. Many patients can correct their problems and keep them controlled with this treatment instead of investing costly procedures or addictive painkillers.
Anyone can receive chiropractic adjustments. Even infants and children can receive these adjustments if they are needed. The elderly and pregnant women can also receive chiropractic adjustments. The elderly often deal with arthritic pain in the joints and other conditions that limit range-of-motion. Improper alignment of the spine can make those issues worse. When we provide chiropractic adjustments, the spine and joints are realigned, relieve that extra pressure that contributes to deteriorating joints.
Pregnant women can find rapid relief from back or pelvic pain with chiropractic help. As the pregnancy progresses, the weight of a growing baby and the changing hip and pelvic bones can lead to daily, chronic pain. Realigning joints as the body grows can provide relief whenever an expectant mother is in pain. For babies in the womb that are breach, these adjustments can even help turn a baby the right direction for birth. If you struggle with pregnancy back pain, definitely seek chiropractic help for this problem.
You don’t have to be injured to receive chiropractic adjustments. Over time, the body gets out of alignment from daily activities, sports, exercise, training and from simply bending over. We work with athletes to keep their bodies aligned so that training can go smoothly without injuries. Consistent readjustments will help improve performance and will diminish pain or injury symptoms that can happen.
The time to seek chiropractic help is not when you have been in chronic pain for years. Yes, chiropractic adjustments can certainly help relieve your pain and issues, but you want to seek that help early-on. The time to go is when you have aches and pains here and there that may be a nuisance to you. Certainly you should seek chiropractic help if you have pain, loss of range-of-motion, neuropathy symptoms and other back-related issues that are starting to become an everyday thing.
The best way to get ahead of a health problem is to treat it when it starts instead of when it is very chronic.
