In many cases, the only time someone considers visiting a chiropractor is after a specific negative event like an accident or sudden pain. In essence, many assume that chiropractic care is a cure for something that’s wrong – and not as a prevention method.
At Apollo Chiropractic, we’re here to tell you that this is not the case. Our chiropractic services are indeed perfect for anyone suffering from pain from a recent trauma, but they’re also perfect for several other chronic issues and basic comfort elements. Let’s look at some of the signs that you could benefit from our chiropractic treatments.
Instead of running straight to the medicine cabinet, try chiropractic care for your chronic pain issues. Much chronic pain in joints and muscles ties directly back to issues with musculoskeletal alignment, exactly the sort of thing we can help with. We’ll help get all systems back into play – they’re meant to work together as one big engine, and chiropractic treatments can help make this happen.
If you notice a sharp pain down the leg or any tingling or weakness in the leg, this could be a sign of a pinched nerve or a slipped disc. Again, while pain medications might help here, chiropractic treatments are some of the best ways to permanently solve the problem rather than placing a temporary Band-Aid over it. Spinal adjustments can relieve major pressure being placed on nerves and discs, and can often solve these problems.
Headaches and Migraines
There are many causes for headaches, but one of the most common is general misalignments in the neck and upper back. If you can’t seem to find an answer for your frequent headaches, a simple adjustment might do more than you had ever expected. Migraine sufferers often find similar results, particularly in the reduction in intensity and frequency of migraines.
Activity and Inactivity
Both ends of this spectrum can potentially benefit from chiropractic services. For people who sit for long periods of time, perhaps for a job, posture and pressure on the neck and back can be major concerns that lead to significant pain – but chiropractic adjustments can help. The same can go for extremely active people, who put their bodies through more wear and tear than the average person and can always benefit from general adjustments to areas that become out of whack.
