The 5 most common reasons to visit a chiropractor
Perhaps you spent the weekend helping a friend move, or maybe your job requires frequent heavy lifting, either way the result can be the same; low back pain. According to the Clinic, low back pain is one of the most common reasons that people go to the doctor. If you go to a medical doctor to deal with your pain, they may just send you home to rest with ice packs and medication.
Your chiropractor will give you an adjustment, which will help align your whole spine, and relieve the pressure of anything that is out of place. Additionally, studies have found that 86% of low back chiropractic patients were happier with the outcomes than those who did not see a chiropractor.
2. Neck pain
Neck pain can come from many things, such as: muscle strains, worn joints, nerve compression, injuries(i.e. Auto, sports, work), torticollis, and certain diseases. Often times it is found that the cause of neck pain is simply muscle strain, and your medical doctor will prescribe you some pain killers or muscle relaxers, but for those who do not want to deal with the side effects of those medications, chiropractic can offer drug free relief. Your chiropractor can adjust your neck in such a way that tension and pain can be reduced.
There is no cure for migraines that has been found, only ways to manage symptoms. Typically, your medical doctor will prescribe various medications which may help to prevent the migraine, or which may help to relive symptoms once the migraine has started. People who visit their chiropractor for migraines know that chiropractic can help prevent migraines, and migraine symptoms, without the use of drugs and their accompanying side effects.
For example, in one randomized controlled trial of chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy for migraine, it was found that of 127 participants, 22% of participants reported more than a 90% reduction of migraines as a consequence of the 2 months of SMT. Approximately 50% more participants reported significant improvement in the morbidity of each episode.
Back pain is a common complaint in pregnancy; pregnant women often find relief from their chiropractor that is drug-free and safe for their baby. Not only can your chiropractor help with the various aches and pains of pregnancy, but your chiropractor can also help to turn your babyinto the optimal position for birth.
“A survey in the US reported a high rate of success (82%) in relieving the musculoskeletal causes of intrauterine constraint using the Webster Technique. Although the sample size was small (112), the results suggest that it may be beneficial to perform the Webster Technique in month 8 of pregnancy, when breech presentation is unlikely to spontaneously convert to cephalic presentation and when external cephalic version is not an effective technique. When successful, the Webster Technique avoids the costs and/or risks of external cephalic version, cesarean section, or vaginal trial of breech. In view of these findings, the Webster Technique deserves serious consideration in the health care management of expectant mothers exhibiting adverse fetal presentation.” 1
