Do I Need A ?
Headaches & Migraines:
Quite often, headaches and migraines don’t originate from the head, but from a problem in the spine or neck. If you regularly reach for over-the-counter pain medication, you are only masking the symptoms and not addressing the root cause of the problems you are experiencing. A Chiropractic can appropriately diagnose and treat the cause of your headaches and migraines
Chiropractic care is completely natural and does not rely on drugs or pain medication to get you well. Chiropractic treats the source of what is troubling you. If you take pain medication just to be able to function over the course of a day, you should see a Chiropractor for relief.
If you’ve recently been in a car accident, even a minor fender-bender, you should see a Chiropractor as soon as possible. Any injury that may have happened during an accident may not show up for several days afterward and will only worsen the longer you wait to address it. Even if you’re not in pain, your Chiropractor can ensure that everything is still aligned properly.
Your Job Requires You To Sit for Long Periods of Time:
If your job requires you to sit for most of the workday, especially slouched over a keyboard, it is very common to wind up with poor posture. Poor posture will put unwanted pressure on the upper back, neck, and shoulders. This pressure can cause the discs and bones to shift enough to cause things like a slipped or herniated disc. A Chiropractor will make sure your spine is aligned correctly so you can avoid these problems down the road.
Wear on the Sole of Your Shoes:
Take a look at the bottom of your favorite shoes. What do the wear patterns look like? Do they match or is one different than the other? If your shoes wear in different places, then it may mean you’re out of alignment somewhere and you are overcompensating for it. A Chiropractor can pinpoint the spot of misalignment and correct your spine.
Sharp, Shooting Pain and/or Numbness and Tingling In Your Legs:
If you are experiencing a shooting pain or tingling in your leg, you could be suffering from a pinched nerve or slipped disc. A Chiropractor will diagnose the cause of pain in your leg and will alleviate the unwanted pressure that is being placed on your nerve(s) and causing you pain.
You don’t just need a Chiropractor when you are in pain or sense something isn’t right, you should see one all the time. Our goal as Chiropractors is to get you well AND keep you there.
