Whether you have recently been in a car accident, suffered a sports injury, or are experiencing pain for an unknown reason, there is a high possibility that you will benefit from chiropractic services! Such injuries often cause significant misalignment in your spine and musculoskeletal structure. Moreover, such misalignment can cause numerous symptoms that otherwise seem to appear out of nowhere. At Sunshine State Medical, our board-certified chiropractors have tremendous skill and expertise in providing chiropractic care for numerous injuries, conditions, and symptoms. As such, we would be delighted to provide you with chiropractic care if you think it could help you!
What is chiropractic care?
The practice of chiropractic care focuses on how your spine and joints interact with your body’s central nervous system. Specifically, chiropractors are concerned with how misalignment in the body’s musculoskeletal structure, specifically within the spine, can be a root cause of several different conditions and illnesses. As such, chiropractic care primarily involves manual spinal manipulation techniques to help provide proper alignment in patients’ musculoskeletal structure, whether that consists of the spine or other joints in your body. In this way, chiropractic services are an excellent alternative to surgery or long-term pain medication.
What symptoms does a chiropractor treat?
Since the spine and nervous system interact with the entire body, the pain symptoms that a chiropractor is qualified to treat are diverse and far-reaching! Whether it is your head, shoulders, knees, or toes that are bothering you, a chiropractor will most likely be able to provide excellent treatment. The following is a list of symptoms and conditions that chiropractors commonly treat:
- Ankle pain
- Arthritis related conditions
- Chest pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Hip pain
- Joint pain or stiffness
- Knee pain
- Migraine headaches
- Myofascial pain
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Numbness or tingling in a particular area
- Pain in your extremities, such as your arms, legs, hands, or feet
- Shoulder pain
- Sports injuries
- Upper, middle, or lower back pain
How often should you see a chiropractor?
Depending on the type and degree of the symptoms you are experiencing, the frequency with which you should see a chiropractor will vary. While some individuals may only require one chiropractic session for symptom relief, most patients require multiple appointments before they experience proper alignment and relief from their pain. Moreover, regular appointments to see a chiropractor can help you maintain correct musculoskeletal alignment for long-term relief from pain symptoms. For some, weekly treatment sessions might provide the greatest benefits. On the other hand, other patients may only need monthly appointments to experience satisfactory relief.
