5 Signs It's Time to See a Chiropractor
How many times have you sat in pain thinking, "should I see a chiropractor?" It's probably been more than you can count. The fact is, you don't have to live in pain. Here are 5 signs that it may be ready to schedule an appointment with a chiropractor.
1. You experience sudden or chronic headaches
Do you get headaches often? While they can come in many forms and intensities, headaches can throw a wrench into your day. Whether they are a dull nuisance or a blinding migraine, if you have headaches often, it's worth understanding the cause behind them. Spinal manipulation can be a great alternative to medication when it comes to migraines, and chiropractic adjustments can assist in relieving tension headaches. Other types of headaches like cluster and sinus headaches can also be relieved through chiropractic care.
2. You have been diagnosed with or suspect that you may have fibromyalgia or sciatica
If you have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia or sciatica, or suspect that you may have one of these painful conditions, it may be time to seek chiropractic care. Do chiropractors really help with conditions like fibromyalgia? Yes! Chiropractic care can include the release of pressure points, neck or back pain management, headache relief, and musculoskeletal and shoulder pain relief. Chiropractic treatment for sciatica can involve spinal adjustments, or spinal decompression therapy, but treatments are personalized for each patient.
3. You were recently involved in an accident (ie. a car accident)
Were you recently involved in a car accident and are now feeling pain? Soreness in the neck and back are common injuries from vehicular accidents which chiropractic care can help relieve. Headaches after an accident are also common. Book a consultation so your chiropractor can get to the root of the problem in your particular case, and suggest the best approach to treatment.
4. You have a sedentary job that requires many hours of sitting
Do you work in an office or at home where you spend hours at a desk in front of your computer? People that have sedentary jobs need to be conscious of their posture and incorporating movement into their days, as sitting and slouching for hours on end can lead to neck and back pain.
5. You regularly participate in physically strenuous activities or sports
If you are an athlete or your job requires you to regularly perform physically strenuous activities, you may have experienced injuries or strains in the past. Regular visits to a chiropractor can help your body recover from any injuries, as well as prevent the risk of future injuries. General spine alignment is often the chiropractic treatment recommended for people who regularly participate in physically strenuous activities or sports as it can increase the range of motion possible while focusing on allowing your entire body to function at its best.
