Help from a Fallston MD Chiropractor to Ease…
Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is often the primary reason a person may be considering visiting a chiropractor. Many chiropractors use spinal manipulation to help alleviate lower back pain, but may suggest other treatments, depending on your unique situation.
Visiting a chiropractor because of neck pain, whether or not you have sustained an injury, can help you to find relief. Chiropractors will often use neck adjustments, also referred to as neck manipulations, to help with the pain and/or lack of mobility. Neck manipulation, along with exercise, can work over time to bring you back to your healthy normal.
Headaches and Migraines
If you have tension headaches or migraines, a chiropractic adjustment for your neck may provide relief for the pain and other associated symptoms. Tension headaches are those that cause aches and pains at the back of your neck and, of course, in your head. These headaches are often the result of bad posture and stress, but there could be other causes as well. A chiropractor can give you tips on how to make lifestyle changes that could help, exercises you can try, and other healthy switches.
Sacroiliac Pain and Sciatica
The joint at the bottom of your spine, the sacroiliac (SI) joint, create a different type of pain in your lower back. This lower back pain can cause pain in the back of your thigh or in your buttocks. A chiropractic adjustment can help get rid of the pain associated with this type of lower back pain.
Sciatica causes pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve that extends to your lower back hips, buttocks, and down the legs. In most cases, sciatica only affects one side of the body and is often the result of a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or a bone spur on the spine.
As you age, your knee joints will naturally wear and tear, which can lead to osteoarthritis. A chiropractor may be able to address this common issue by performing back adjustments, along with knee exercises.
