Chiropractic has been around for over 100 years, offering pain relief to generations. This form of healthcare treats disorders of the musculoskeletal system surrounding the spine as well as the nervous system that runs through it. It can be used to help in a variety of conditions, such as neck pain, back pain, headaches or joint pain anywhere in the body.
Our Lithia Spring Chiropractors integrate multiple medical disciplines to provide comprehensive care for all of our patients. Many of our patients seek out our care due to a recent motor vehicle accident, a slip and fall, a work injury or simple neck and back pain. We treat all symptoms of these traumas, starting from the head down.
80 percent of all headaches are considered carcinogenic, meaning “coming from the cervical spine” also known as your neck. Whether this pain was caused by a car crash or a less traumatic situation, It is very common to alleviate headaches from a simple chiropractic adjustment because the cervical spine is unique when compared to any other bones in your spine.
The cervical spine not only holds the brain stem, spinal cord and nerves that flow into your head, but it also contains the vertebral artery which supplies 60 perfect of the blood flow to the back of your head. When these bones that make up the cervical spine are shifted out of place, they directly pinch off the neurological and blood flow to your head, resulting in what is commonly known as a “headache.”
Neck pain can also be caused by a variety of reasons. When evaluating this area from a chiropractic perspective, each and every bone has a perfect position in reference to the bones above and below. The chiropractors at AICA Lithia Springs will provide adjustments to restore proper positioning which decreases any pressure on the nerves or rubbing together of the bones, which left untreated could cause arthritis in the future.
Neck pain can also be combined with symptoms that radiate down your arms and other upper extremities. This is easily explained when the bones of your neck pinch off the nerves that go into your arms, which is how these symptoms are produced. When these spinal bones are put back into place, the pain will subside.
Lower back pain and pain that radiates into your legs, like sciatica, is another common problem solved by chiropractic care. This discomfort can be caused by the bones of the lumbar spine pushing on the nerves that run down your lower extremities or the combination of the spinal vertebrates being out of place and pressure on the spinal discs. Expert care from a chiropractor can not only alleviate this pain but improve your posture and quality of life.
All of this issues can be corrected and helped by the experts at AICA Lithia Springboard-certified chiropractors are part of an extensive team that treats injuries on a whole, rather than focusing on a single piece of the pain puzzle.
