The goal of a chiropractor is to relieve pain and improve function by making adjustments to the spine or other parts of the body without the use of drugs. While most of us feel pain from time to time, there are certain conditions that can benefit from regular visits to the chiropractor.
- Lower Back and Neck Pain. Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons for a visit to the chiropractor, and the treatment is often more effective than a visit to the family doctor. If you are experiencing neck pain that is not due to injury, a chiropractor can often treat the pain with neck adjustments and exercises rather than medication.
- Headaches. Stress and bad posture can lead to pain in the back of your head and neck. A chiropractor may be able to achieve relief by doing adjustments to your neck and asking you to do stretching exercises.
- Whiplash. If you have been in a car accident and are experiencing pain and stiffness in your neck, including pain when you turn your head, dizziness, or nausea, a chiropractic adjustment may help when combined with exercises and stretching.
- Shoulder Pain. If you are feeling pain and stiffness in your shoulder, or frozen shoulder syndrome, a chiropractor can stretch the muscles surrounding your shoulder and show you what stretches to perform at home.
