A chiropractic alignment is the traditional treatment people think of when they talk about going to a chiropractor. As the most common chiropractic treatment performed, this particular maneuver consists of the chiropractor moving the vertebrae in the back, so they align with the discs. This has the potential to relieve stress on the back and alleviate pain and discomfort caused by misaligned portions of the spine irritating the surrounding tissue and nerves. For this reason, it also has the ability to alleviate a headache and migraine pain. An alignment has the potential to enhance blood flow throughout the spine, which brings additional nutrients to the area that have the potential to enhance healing.
Spinal decompression is a chiropractic treatment that utilizes traction to stretch the spine. The chiropractor hooks you up to a device comprised of a motor, pulleys, and ropes. The motor in the machine will gently pull your spine, taking pressure off of the sensitive discs in between the vertebrae. If you have a pinched nerve, it takes pressure off of the nerve. Spinal decompression increases the speed of your recovery since it takes pressure off of the discs, so they can heal. Spinal decompression treats a variety of conditions including sciatica and a herniated disc.
Nutritional and Lifestyle Recommendations
At our chiropractic clinic, we believe taking a multifaceted approach to healing your pain is the best course of action. By changing your diet, you can increase the amount of nutrients that flow throughout your body. This speeds up your recovery time. Certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies are the cause of your pain in some cases. For instances, a vitamin B deficiency is notorious for contributing to headaches. Sometimes, your lifestyle is the culprit of your pain. If you have a job where you work at the computer for prolonged periods of time, you could have back pain as a result of poor posture. Our chiropractor will identify your risk factors and educate you on ways to target the root of your problem.
Visiting our clinic for a chiropractic massage means you'll have less pain and swelling. The massage differs from a standard massage because it stimulates the tissue deep within your body. It enhances blood flow while loosening tight muscles.
At our chiropractic clinic, we might recommend exercise therapy. The practitioner guides you through exercises that increase your range of motion and flexibility at a rate that's comfortable for you. By stretching the tissue, more blood flows to the area. Not to mention, it reduces your pain.
