Symptoms and Chiropractic Care from a Chiropractor
Chiropractic care can treat much more than just back pain. At Meek Integrative Health Center, in Springfield, MO, we can treat a wide variety of issues, including chronic pain and injuries.
Back pain is the most common condition we see in our office. In fact, most people will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
When back pain comes on suddenly, this is known as acute back pain. This type is usually caused by an injury to the spine or soft tissue in the back, like a sprain or strain.
Chronic back pain is pain that lasts for a long time. It often begins gradually and gets worse over time. Arthritis, bulging or herniated discs, spinal misalignment, and myofascial pain can cause, or make worse, this type of pain.
A chiropractor on our team can help relieve both types of back pain using spinal manipulation and other techniques.
Your neck and back are closely connected. In fact, the neck is known as the cervical spine. Your spinal column starts in your neck and runs down the length of your back.
Neck pain can be caused or made worse by cervical misalignment, muscle strains, and accident injuries. In addition to pain, you may also notice stiffness or difficulty moving your neck.
Headaches are another common complaint treated by chiropractors. Headaches can have different causes or contributing factors, including muscle tension and spinal misalignment.
A chiropractor on our team can help treat headaches and migraines effectively by addressing the underlying cause. Chiropractic adjustment and massage therapy are treatments a member of our team can use for headaches. We may also recommend that you make changes to your diet or lifestyle to avoid common headache triggers.
Joint pain can be caused or made worse by arthritis or other inflammatory conditions, injuries, and misalignment. You may have knee pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, or foot pain.
You may be surprised to learn that a chiropractor on our chiropractic care team can adjust the joints in your body other than your spine. A chiropractor on our team may also recommend therapeutic exercises. These exercises can help strengthen the joint and surrounding muscles, reduce inflammation, and increase blood flow, which can help relieve pain in the knees and other joints.
