By visiting our chiropractic clinic, you can live a life that is free from pain. We treat patients on a regular basis that come to us in so much pain that they can hardly move and simply sitting can create major back pain and headaches. When the spine is out of alignment or there has been a trauma, this level of pain can be fairly common. Many people try to treat it by taking pain pills and other medication, but this only treats the symptoms and won’t do anything to prevent the pain from coming back. Taking too many pain pills can be incredibly bad for your liver and other organs so we recommend that you only use pain medication in an emergency and for short periods of time.
Instead of popping pain medication, you can address the issue that is causing the pain in the first place. When you schedule an appointment we will examine your spine to determine where it is out of alignment. This happens more frequently than you may think, and a spine that is misaligned can create a variety of other health issues in addition to causing pain. Playground injuries, which can go unnoticed, can cause mechanical stress that may only cause mild to no symptoms will also benefit from chiropractic care.
When you schedule an appointment with our chiropractic clinic, you can rest assured that we will conduct a thorough examination in order to determine exactly what is wrong with your spine and how it may be impacting the rest of your body and causing pain. Once we know what the issue is, we will adjust your spine and move it into alignment so that you can start to feel better. If you haven’t been in before, or it has been awhile, it may take several visits to move your spine into place and train it to stay that way. Immediately, your muscles will start to feel better, and things like headaches and back pain will go away. How long your spine stays in alignment is based on your body and what activities you like to be involved in since more active people have a risk of moving their spine again.
Sometimes, the spine will come out of place and become misaligned on its own, without an injury or aggressive activity making it go out. When this is the case, it shows how important it is to keep visiting our family chiropractic clinic because it tells us that your back needs to be strengthened. If your spine is strong, it will be better for your body overall since a strong spine will typically remain in place unless it experiences a trauma. We will show you how to do some simple exercises to straighten your back and prevent further injury.
We believe that chiropractic care is an important part of keeping the body healthy. We are happy to answer your questions in detail and explain further how visiting our family chiropractic clinic can help you to stay free from pain.
