The Top 10 Reasons to Seek Chiropractic Services

The Top 10 Reasons to Seek Chiropractic Services

The number of people turning to chiropractic services has been increasing steadily over the years, and for good reason. With a chiropractic adjustment, patients can significantly alleviate everyday MSK (musculoskeletal) pain. Chiropractic spinal manipulation involves a precise movement of the spinal joints to relieve discomfort, improve muscle function and restore range of motion. Chiropractic services might just be the perfect solution for people who have tried other treatment options with limited success. Contact us to learn more about the services we offer and how they can fit into your treatment plan.

Here are 10 reasons to consider seeking chiropractic services.

1. Back Pain

Chiropractic treatment is particularly effective for back pain. The most common cause of back pain is repetitive poor posture. A chiropractor can often treat the source of your back pain with a single adjustment of your spine. In cases of recurring or chronic pain, you can usually benefit from regular visits for chiropractic services.

2. Neck Pain

Though there are many reasons for neck pain, it is often caused by poor posture. Your chiropractor will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and make an appropriate treatment plan. 

3. Pain and Tingling in the Wrists

Pain, numbness and tingling in the wrists often occurs in people who perform repetitive tasks in their daily routine. This is caused by compression of the carpal nerves within the wrist. Making chiropractic services part of your regular life can help decompress these nerves and alleviate uncomfortable symptoms.

4. Headaches

Headaches can often be reduced by treating the shoulders and the neck. There are a range of effective chiropractic treatment options for tension, migraine and cervicogenic (neck related) headaches.

5. Fatigue

The feeling of fatigue and tiredness is most likely to set in when your body hurts. Patients who have used chiropractic services report feeling energized and reinvigorated after treatment.

6. Stress

Today’s fast-paced world can leave us feeling stressed, which manifests physically in the body. Even without pain, our chiropractic services can help you reduce tension and stress in the body, making you feel better emotionally.

7. Poor Sleep Quality

Musculoskeletal body pain can make you suffer from poor sleep quality. Chiropractic therapy can alleviate pain and stress so that you can relax and get a good sleep.

8. Car Accident Injuries

In Alberta, chiropractic treatment is automatically covered by your auto insurance if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA). Chiropractic is an effective treatment for whiplash associated disorders, headaches and back pain from motor vehicle collisions.

9. Hip, Buttock and Sacroiliac (SI) Pain

Chiropractic treatment realigns the back and hips to reduce pain that occurs when your pelvis is slightly twisted. This can help increase hip mobility, normalize gait and reduce buttock pain.

10. Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic services can be effective for shoulder pain. Chiropractic shoulder treatments include joint manipulation, shockwave therapy, active muscle release, postural education and exercise therapy.
