Chiropractic Services Offered At Western Trails Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Mitchell
Chiropractic care is focused on manipulating the spine and joints so that they are shifted into the optimal alignments. There are many benefits to this, including the reduction or elimination of headaches, back pain, joint pain, and the pain and dysfunction caused by sports injuries and accidents. Here are some of the ways we use chiropractic services at Western Trails Chiropractic & Acupuncture.
Back Pain Treatment
Since chiropractic care puts a high emphasis on spinal adjustments, it's no wonder that many people think of us when their backs hurt. We adjust the spine to eliminate points of irritation, imbalance, nerve impingement, and other painful back conditions. This is typically effective even if you don't have a major spine problem such as a herniated disc. Sprains and strains are caused by forces that are often strong enough to throw your spine out of alignment, and a misaligned spine cannot fully heal. Adjusting it will let your body focus on repairing the peripheral damage.
Auto Accidents and Sports Injuries
When the body is subjected to sudden and extreme forces, it is typical for strains, sprains, and misalignments of the bones to result. In auto accidents, whiplash is a common manifestation of this fact. In it, your neck is whipped back and forth, causing strains, sprains, and problems with your cervical spine. Realignment of the spine speeds healing and helps with your range of motion.
In sports, problems are more likely to develop in your lower back, hips, knees, and ankles. These parts are damaged by jumping, landing wrong, making sharp turns (especially while running), being tackled, stopping suddenly after running, and other common motions made on the field. When this happens, the joints often become misaligned. Chiropractic care helps get them lined up again so the injured areas can heal properly.
Injuries at work can come from accidents, but it is more common for them to result from improper ergonomics or repetitive motion. When they occur, you have the right to get treatment from the doctor of your choice – including a chiropractor. See us for help with spinal injuries, back pain, and repetitive motion damage.
There are many causes of headaches and migraines, including problems with your temporomandibular joint (the TMJ, or jaw joint), ear issues, cervical spine problems, and emotional tension. We can handle joint- and spine-related issues with ease, and chiropractic treatments can help you release emotional tension.
