Conditions Treated by Your Imperial Chiropractor
Chiropractors specialize in correcting musculoskeletal disorders attributed to inflammation, injury and nervous system dysfunction using drug-free, nonsurgical methods like adjustments, spinal decompression, therapeutic/sports massage and cold laser therapy. In addition, your chiropractor in Imperial also provides guidance on nutrition, lifestyle choices and exercises that help promote healing, increase the range of motion and reduce your risk of suffering repeated soft tissue damage and inflammation.
Common sports injuries include tennis/golfer's elbow, runner's knee, rotator cuff injuries, concussions, bursitis and plantar fasciitis. Receiving chiropractic treatment as soon as possible for these injuries not only prevents worsening of the condition but accelerates healing by increasing blood flow to damaged soft tissues.
Auto Accident Injuries
Whiplash and seatbelt injuries affecting your ribs, shoulders, abdomen and chest area can be extremely painful and difficult to heal. Your chiropractor in Imperial applies spinal adjustments, cold laser therapy, and rehabilitative exercises to reduce pain and contribute to strengthening sprained or torn muscles and ligaments.
Chiropractors address the many symptoms of fibromyalgia by focusing on improving the functioning of the central nervous system. Systemic pain produced by fibromyalgia may arise from a misaligned spine and vertebrae pressing against nerves extending from the spine into the body.
Headaches and Migraines
Recurring headaches and migraines may also be attributed to nerve compression and inflammation leading to constriction of blood vessels surrounding the skull. Spinal adjustments provided by your chiropractor in Imperial offers relief from chronic head pain by removing pressure off nerve endings and eliminating inflammation.
Causes of neck and shoulder pain range from simple strain and overuse to tendonitis, arthritis, rotator cuff injury or whiplash. To effectively treat neck and shoulder pain, your Imperial chiropractor urges you to schedule an appointment to receive an accurate diagnosis involving physical examinations, postural screenings, spinal x-rays and symptom evaluation. The sooner chiropractor treatment is initiated, the sooner you enjoy pain relief with relying on surgery or prescription medications.
Back pain sends more people to their chiropractor than any other pain condition. Reasons for upper, middle or lower back pain include bulging/herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and sciatica. Depending on the cause of your back pain, your chiropractor will use spinal decompression, adjustments, cold laser therapy and other holistic treatments to relieve back pain while preventing worsening of the condition.
