Handling The Cause Of Pain At Principled Healthcare Solutions
Many patients are surprised to discover that Chiropractic doctors do not treat symptoms. This is very different from traditional medical approaches.
Chiropractic treatment releases the stress points that result in non-optimum body conditions.
These deadly stress points are called subluxations.
What Is A “Subluxation”?
Simply stated, a subluxation is a misalignment of the bones in your spine which may cause pressure, soreness or pinching of the nerves. Subluxations cause nerve interference which can result in many non-optimum conditions of the body. They can also cause problems with the spinal discs in your back and can lead to inflammatory or arthritic conditions.
A subluxation often starts as a painless, tiny misalignment, but as it continues it can affect your overall health and vitality. And can become a source of intense pain and discomfort.
Chiropractors have specialized training that makes them able to analyze your body for subluxations. Using special Chiropractic adjustment techniques, your Chiropractor safely, gently and painlessly corrects them, helping you to regain more optimum health.
Neck And Back Pain
Handling pain, and specifically neck and back pain, is the most frequent reason people seek out Chiropractic care. They want a rapid, natural, drug-free and surgery-free resolution of their pain.
Neck Pain (Including Whiplash)
Some of the reasons for neck pain are:
- Poor Sleeping Positions
- Poor Posture at the Computer
- Injury or Accidents
If you’ve been suffering from neck pain for more than 12 weeks,
you have chronic neck pain. Going to a Chiropractor can help to
relieve even chronic neck pain.
Back Pain, Lower Back Pain And Sciatica
Back pain, particularly in the lower back, is the second most frequent reason why people seek Chiropractic health care. Anything from an injury to obesity to serious degenerative conditions can cause chronic lower back pain.
Severe lower back pain has been most frequently linked to hyper-mobility, which simply means that your lower back area moves in a contradictory way to the rest of your spine. This causes your lower back to compensate for this movement in an effort to stabilize the area.
Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain, numbness or weakness in the lower extremities. Sciatica is usually caused by a misaligned lower spine or a slipped disc. However, any degeneration as a result of long-term stress can lead to sciatica as well.
If you suspect you may be suffering from sciatica, the biggest mistake you can make is waiting until the pain becomes unbearable before you contact a Chiropractor. Waiting can cause long-term damage to your sciatic nerve, so it’s essential to see a Chiropractor when you first experience any pain.
Automobile Or Work Accidents
Unfortunately, accidents are a way of life in the modern world.
If you’ve been in a car accident, or an accident at work, we strongly suggest that you come in for a Chiropractic evaluation as soon as you’re able to – especially if you’re experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Muscle Spasms
We invite you to come in to Principled Healthcare Solutions for a full examination and consultation. Our integrated approach means you will receive a personal program just for you that may include Chiropractic adjustments, Medical care, back and joint support and/or braces, muscle stretching, nutritional testing and Massage Therapy.
This program will handle both the subluxations themselves and correct the results of their damaging stress on the body.
