Most people think Chiropractors are doctors you visit only when you have a back problem, however, this is a huge myth that folks have concocted over the last several decades. Actually, chiropractic care covers much more than back pain and we’ve listed just a few of the larger issues that a chiropractor can bring back to good health:
Pain from Arthritis comes from joint and/or spine dislocations. If a Chiropractor corrects these dislocations in your body, it can help relieve you from arthritic pain. Chiropractic adjustments can also help increase range of motion as well as reduce fluid that is inside the joint.
Spinal adjustments can also effectively treat chronic headaches that stem from the neck. Tension in your neck muscles can be the primary cause of migraines or headaches, and tend to occur in individuals who have sedentary lifestyles.
Foot & Ankle Disorders
Sprains and injuries that do not heal well can cause issues within your feet and ankles. Chiropractic care can help with certain foot and ankle problems such as Morton’s neuroma, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar fasciitis, and Metatarsalgia.
Asthma and Allergies
Any misalignment of your vertebrae can irritate other organs and nerves in your body, including your lungs. Many patients will report an improvement in their general respiratory health after a chiropractic treatment because there are specific nerves that extend to the lungs from the upper back.
