All About Chiropractic Care From Our Lubbock Chiropractor
Chiropractic care techniques utilize non-invasive, drug-free, and natural methods to help balance your body, relieve ongoing symptoms, and improve your overall health and wellness. What many people don't realize is just how linked your spinal health can be to the rest of your body—particularly when it comes to the central nervous system and the neurological system. As a result, when your spinal health is in balance, you feel more energized, healthy, and ready to take on the world.
Furthermore, unlike other treatment options, you don't have to worry about the risk of common side effects, complications, and risks with chiropractic care. Since the treatments are non-invasive and don't involve experimenting with prescription medications to control your symptoms, you can enjoy added peace of mind. Plus, chiropractic care focuses on treating the cause of your symptoms—not just the symptoms themselves.
Injuries & Conditions Treated Through Lubbock Chiropractic Care
There are countless injuries and health conditions that chiropractic care can effectively treat. For instance, many patients seek chiropractic care following an auto accident, where injuries sustained can include anything from whiplash to strains, sprains, and herniated/bulging discs. Whiplash is by far the most common spinal injury and occurs when the head, neck, and spine are suddenly thrust forward, usually into a seatbelt when a vehicle impacts another car or object. When this happens, the ligaments, tendons, and muscles surrounding the spine can become torn and damaged, resulting in severe back pain, neck pain, and even migraines or headaches.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is another medical condition that may be treated with chiropractic care; this condition occurs when the main nerve in the wrist becomes pinched, leading to pain and numbness in the affected hand and/or arm. Chiropractic care, when combined with physical therapy, can treat carpal tunnel syndrome without the need for surgery or other invasive methods.
Many sports injuries, such as tennis elbow and knee problems, can also be treated using chiropractic care. Some other examples of common conditions we treat through Lubbock TX chiropractic care include:
- headaches and migraines
- shoulder pain
- workplace injuries
- degenerative disc disease
Lubbock Chiropractic Treatment Techniques
So, which chiropractic treatments do we specifically use in our office to provide patients with symptom relief and treat the problems at the source?
- spinal decompression - this technique decompresses the vertebrae along the spine, which is effective in treating herniated/bulging discs and relieving back and neck pain; it can also be used to treat sciatica by relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve.
- myofascial release therapy - effective in treating anything from headaches and TMJ to fatigue and back/neck pain, this method focuses on relieving tension in the body's connective tissue and improving movement and range of motion.
- SGP nerve block - works to relieve chronic headaches through stimulating the cluster of facial nerves within the face.
Other chiropractic services we provide in our office include:
- at-home corrective exercises
- general lifestyle advice
- nutritional counseling
- spinal and postural screenings
To determine the best course of action and treatment for your symptoms, we recommend an evaluation and consultation with a chiropractor. This will allow us to come up with a treatment plan that's suited to meet your needs and lifestyle.
