Do you have chronic headaches? Are you suffering from back, should, hip or neck pain? Does your back pain make you tired? Answering yes to any of these questions mean it’s a good time to seek chiropractic care. Pain in the body is caused by irritation of a nerve or a muscle that’s been overworked or damaged. A chiropractor can return someone’s body back to a healthy condition. Taking pain medication and muscle relaxers is not going to correct the problem that is causing the pain. In fact, failing to correct the condition causing pain and discomfort could lead to more damage to the body.
Injuries can occur due to automobile accidents, sports, work and many other activities. Correcting the condition and allowing the body to heal is a better solution than masking the pain with medication. Chiropractic care in Fort Collins CO can involve various treatments such as therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, Kinesio taping, decompression of the spine, traction or massage therapy. Once a chiropractor performs a thorough examination they can determine which treatment will work for your condition. Individuals that suffer from bulging discs can find a great deal of relief through spinal decompression. This treatment gently separates the vertebra and remove the pressure from the discs and vertebrae. For some patients, the disc will return to its normal position and will no longer irritate nerves in the back.
Kinesio taping offers support and improves the body’s natural healing process. It can also give stability to joints and muscles that are injured. The tape does not restrict an individual’s movement and lifts the skin to improve circulation and reduce inflammation and pain. In addition to these treatments, a chiropractor will recommend the patient receive manual manipulation of the spine or neck. This will align the spinal column back into position. Misalignment of the spine can cause severe pain, muscle spasms, difficulty walking and many other problems.
