What is the best way to prevent back pain?

There is no ‘silver bullet’ that can eliminate back pain.  Every person has their own circumstances.  Some of the most important factors include getting regular exercise, avoiding accidents, lifting properly and staying close to your ideal weight.  Getting enough sleep, eating nutritious food, reducing stress, not smoking and other life style choices also can impact spinal health.  If you make good life style choices and still have back pain a chiropractor can often make more specific recommendations to alleviate your pain and help reduce the likelihood of future problems.

 

Can Chiropractic care help me with my headaches?

DukeUniversityresearchers came to the conclusion that ‘Spinal Adjustment is Effective for Headaches’.  Chiropractic spinal adjustments are often an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.  Based on a literature review of several headache treatment options, a panel of 25 multidisciplinary experts concluded that spinal adjustments resulted in almost immediate improvement for cervicogenic headaches, or those that originate in the neck.  If your headaches are the tension type or come from your neck chiropractic may be effective for you.

 

What types of conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors treat a wide variety of physical complaints.  Back and neck conditions are by far the most common ailments seen by chiropractors but treatment of extremity conditions (shoulder, hip, wrist, etc.) are also common.  It also isn’t too uncommon for back or neck conditions to cause pain in other areas.  Neck problems often cause headaches or arm symptoms and back problems often cause hip or leg symptoms.  If you have questions regarding chiropractic care call us to schedule a complementary consultation.
