We get it. We have the same conversations all the time too. We’ll be at a barbeque, and someone will ask, “So what can a chiropractor do for me?” People have health issues but are not sure who they should see, in order to get the best treatment for their particular concern.
That’s part of the reason we decided to write this article. We wanted to share with you 5 common signs that it might just be time to see a chiropractor. In all of these circumstances, treatment from a chiropractor may help.
You are suffering regular headaches – If you are suffering from headaches regularly, a chiropractor may assist in relieving this pain. Through manual therapy, the symptoms of a number of types of headaches can be alleviated. Regular treatment can work toward reducing the intensity and frequency of headaches and migraines. Furthermore, this can also lessen the requirement for sufferers to take over the counter medications.
You have a limited range of motion – Patients often come and see a chiropractor when they have a limited range of motion, and issues with function of certain limbs or body parts – e.g. raising arms, bending or turning. Chiropractors can assist in improving range of motion with spinal adjustments, as well as working on the muscles and joints surrounding the bones.
You are experiencing frequent back or neck pain – If you are experiencing frequent back pain or neck pain, pain that you are often treating with over-the-counter medications, this is another sign that you should make an appointment to see a chiropractor. Furthermore, going to see a chiropractor early can identify problems and help you to avoid permanent damage in the future.
You have a sedentary job – If you have a sedentary job, it might be worth seeing a chiropractor early, and taking a more proactive approach to your health. A sedentary lifestyle and a sedentary job can have a massive impact on your body. You may not be feeling it now, but you might end up with lower back pain and other issues in the future. If you are trying to mask pain with painkillers, it’s better to take a more proactive approach to ensure your body remains in alignment and the possibility of suffering pain is avoided.
You participate in regular strenuous exercise or sporting activities – If you play competitive sport, you should consider regularly seeing a chiropractor. There are a number of benefits you may likely see. First, you may see an improvement in performance with an increased range of movement. Secondly, proactive chiropractic treatment may assist with injury prevention.
