Acupuncture can help musculoskeletal conditions including neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, headaches, muscle aches and spasms, sprains and strains and a variety of other conditions.
Misalignments of the vertebra or bones in your spine can occur with normal activities of daily living. When experiencing pain, this is your body’s warning signal going off that it is in distress.
Pregnancy and Chiropractic with Webster Technique
From ICPA About the Webster Technique
Chiropractic care benefits all aspects of your body’s ability to be healthy. This is accomplished by working with the nervous system—the communication system between your brain and body. Doctors of Chiropractic work to correct spinal, pelvic and cranial misalignments (subluxations). When misaligned, these structures create an imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments. Additionally, the resulting nerve system stress may affect the body’s ability to function optimally
What injuries occur depends on which direction you get hit. Some patients are aware of the impact, while others are not. After a motor vehicle collision, you have a great release of endorphins, which can block the signal of pain. That’s why you may not feel as bad as you really are. About two days after you’ve been involved in a collision, the pain is usually at its worst. At that point, you’ll find a lot of patients who will just take ibuprofen and think the pain will eventually just go away.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Lumbar decompression relieves the pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing areas of herniated disc back into place. Decompression achieves this by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intra-discal pressure. This essentially creates a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieves pressure.
KIDS AND CHIROPRACTIC
Children experience more slips, falls, hits, accidents, bruises, running, jumping, and activities in one week than adults experience in one year! The problem is, we leave all the damage that they do to the body, day after day, totally untreated.
