The chiropractors at YourChiro pride themselves in taking an approach to healthcare that is natural and drug-free. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to get affordable, quality chiropractic care and are working to make it available to as many as possible. Listed below are a just a few of the many areas in which chiropractic care can help an individual.
In the human spine, the neck is the most vulnerable section. It consists of 7 small, interlocking spinal vertebrae/bones, making up the cervical vertebrae. This delicate structure is designed to support the head, which weighs 8 to 12 pounds. Any change in the way the bones and joints of the cervical vertebrae are positioned can result in a change of structure, loss of motion, and often discomfort or pain. Simple and gentle chiropractic adjustments can restore proper joint mobility and structure to the neck, thereby alleviating pain.
Sciatica is a mild to severe pain that originates in the lower back and radiates down one or both legs. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body and the term “sciatica” refers to the painful condition that results from impingement somewhere along the nerve pathway. The cause of sciatica can be a bulging or herniated disc, piriformis syndrome (a spasm of the piriformis muscle, causing pressure on the sciatic nerve), or postural imbalance. This condition can be accompanied by numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the legs. The chiropractors at YourChiro are uniquely skilled to evaluate and reduce the most common causes of sciatica.
Stress and Tension
Regular chiropractic visits at YourChiro can help to reduce stress levels. Chronic stress is linked to many health problems including heart disease, headaches, anxiety, neck pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal dysfunction and more. Chronic stress creates muscle tension and contraction which can lead to subluxations, which are spinal vertebra that become misaligned and put pressure on nerves. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce stress and tension by allowing the joints and muscles of the body to move freely, increasing blood flow and reducing irritation and inflammation.
Pain is the last symptom to appear and the first to go away when dealing with problems in the neuromuscular system. In most cases, the initial problem is still there and the pain will return. At YourChiro we want to alleviate your pain as quickly as possible, but it is important to continue care until the problem is completely healed. Furthermore, a patient will benefit the most from chiropractic care by getting treatments before they begin experiencing pain. By incorporating chiropractic care into your healthcare routine regularly, you can help your body to sustain optimal nerve health.
Increase Athletic Performance
Chiropractic care can help to enhance your athletic performance and reach your physical goals, regardless of your fitness level. At YourChiro, we always try to remind our clients that structure affects function. The musculoskeletal system is the foundation of your body’s structure and if that structure is out of alignment or imbalanced you will not be able to perform to your fullest potential. For this reason, regular chiropractic visits are recommended to ensure that your spine is aligned. YourChiro has affordable, monthly plans to help make going to the chiropractor as easy on your wallet as possible.
