Why Do People Go To Chiropractors?
People go to chiropractors for many reasons from severe pain to wanting to perform better in sports or even as a way to maintain better health. The most common reasons people discover chiropractic are low back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Low Back Pain
Low back pain can be debilitating. Sometimes the pain radiates into the buttocks, thigh, leg, and foot. At times, it can be soo bad that there is numbness on the skin and the muscles can be weaker than normal. Chiropractic can often be used alone. At times, the chiropractor may choose to coordinate care with an orthopedic physician, neurologist, physical therapist, or other health care professional.
Like low back pain, pain from the neck can also radiate into the the arms and hands, upper back, and even mimic pains that could be mistaken for a heart attack! Often times people who go to the ER are eventually redirected to the chiropractor. Chiropractors see patients everyday for these same symptoms.
There are many kinds of headaches. The most common headaches, tension and migraines, seem to respond quite well to chiropractic treatments. These types of headaches are often caused by stress and tension. Chiropractic treatments improve spinal function by removing tension and stress in the spine.
