Chiropractic: It's not just about back pain

When you think of a chiropractor, what is your first thought? Back pain, right? While it is true that spinal manipulations can ease any discomfort you feel in your upper or lower spine, there are actually many more reasons that drive patients through the doors of our Henderson chiropractic office, and here are just a few of them:

If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, chiropractic intervention may be just what you need. Sometimes there are issues with the cervical area of your spine (your neck) that can create this type of consistent pain, so seeking treatments that resolve the root cause is necessary if you want long-term relief.

Leg Pain. Leg pain can be caused by issues that originate in your spine and vertebrae or discs that impinge on your sciatic nerve can often be treated with chiropractic care. The number one priority is to relieve the pressure on the nerve, which can often be accomplished with spinal manipulation and other chiropractic treatment therapies.

Hip and Joint Pain. Pain in your hip and joints can make it extremely difficult to walk, sit, and otherwise move. This discomfort can often be alleviated with chiropractic care, allowing you to move about more freely.

Several studies have found that chiropractic care can help ease this chronic pain condition, making a visit to our Henderson chiropractic office the first step on your road to recovery if you suffer from fibromyalgia.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This particular repetitive strain injury is often thought to require surgery in order to improve. However, chiropractic is a non-invasive alternative that can often relieve this type of pain without having to “go under the knife.”

Yes, chiropractic helps many patients overcome chronic pain. But did you know chiropractic can offer additional health benefits? Studies show that chiropractic can reduce blood pressure as well as levels of the stress hormone cortisol. It can also boost the production of antibodies and other disease-fighting mechanisms in your body. That's why many patients see a chiropractor as part of routine preventive care.

These are just a couple of things that a visit or two to our Henderson chiropractic office can do for you. Call Advanced Spine & Rehabilitation today and schedule your appointment!
