Treatment Of Common Musculoskeletal Conditions

Chiropractic treatment has been a lifesaver for many who had been suffering from back and neck pain. The relief provided due to this therapy is long-lasting with better results and no side effects. Chiropractic treatment does not tend only to back and neck ailments but also various other musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic treatments are preferred by athletes as they help them cure knee, ankle, carpal tunnel syndrome, or elbow problems in an effective and natural manner without the use of any medicines that might hinder their performance. All sorts of pain can be treated using chiropractic care irrespective of the region or the intensity of the damage. Severe cases can take time, but a complete cure is guaranteed. If the condition cannot be cured by means of chiropractic treatment alone, then a referral will be made to your general physician regarding the appropriate medical treatment. However, it is best recommended to get treated using the chiropractic method rather than medical treatment. The following conditions can be cured using the chiropractic method,

  • Stiffness in the back, back pain
  • Neck, upper back stiffness
  • Weakness in the legs, tingling, numbing sensations
  • Weakness in the arms, tingling, numbing
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Extreme joint pain and dysfunction
  • Treatment of Common Injuries

Chiropractic practice is not related only to spine and neck pain but also treats any sort of pain that arises in the body. The specialty of chiropractors is that they are able to identify whatever sort of pain despite its origin. Auto injuries usually have a delayed onset of symptoms that begin to show only after weeks of experiencing an accident. In such cases, the actual injury is looked beyond and more importance is given to the setup of the equipment and proper work techniques to assure the patient has a comfortable experience while getting treated for their injury. In case of injuries that arise due to sports activity the first thing the chiropractor looks for is imbalances in the muscles and the biochemicals, and the treatment is planned accordingly. In addition to treating the condition, optimizing the person’s health is also the prime responsibility of a chiropractor.

Common injuries like an automobile accident, injuries sustained during lifting, athletic or sports injuries, injuries due to falls, and other chronic injuries are all part of the treatment.

Treatment Of Non-Musculoskeletal Conditions

Apart from spinal treatments, Chiropractors have also shown their expertise in treating other medical conditions such as chronic ear infections in both children and adults, menstrual pains, menstrual irregularities in women, and treating arthritis in the elderly. There is no specific form of chiropractic treatment for such conditions, however, research has shown that such medical conditions also arise due to the aggravated irritation that arises in the nervous system in the spinal region as the spinal nerve roots share an intimate relationship with the spinal structure. Restoring the proper function of the nervous system by altering the spinal structure can provide relief automatically to the aforementioned conditions.

The following Non-Musculoskeletal conditions can be treated using Chiropractic,

  • Dizziness
  • Asthma
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Infantile colic
  • Low Energy Levels
  • Otitis Media
  • Ulcers
  • Dysmenorrhea
