General Aches & Pains

Sitting too much, sleeping the wrong way, a body can get kinked up by just living life. All the types of treatment we discussed for other injuries work very well for body pain you just can’t categorize.

LOWER BACK PAIN

Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons why patients seek help from a chiropractor.  Low back pain effects up to 56% of the population and is the most common cause of disability in US adults.

Lower Back Pain Causes

Frequently, lower back injuries are caused by a misalignment of the facet joints in the low back.  This results in muscle spasms and movement dysfunction which then results in significant pain and discomfort.

Lower back disc injuries are, unfortunately, becoming increasingly common. Most of us spend a considerable time sitting which causes viscoelastic creep (stretching out) of the posterior aspect of our disc.  This weakens the structure. When we go from prolonged sitting to movement without proper stretching and warming up, our nucleus pulposa (the center of your disc) pushes into this weakened structure causing a disc injury.  This is why most disc injuries come from relatively small things (i.e. I bent down to pick up my suitcase after my flight to Hawaii and I now I have excruciating low back pain).

Lower Back Pain Treatment: Research Proves Chiropractic Care is the Best

Recent research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that chiropractic manipulation was more effective then medication in reducing low back pain and increasing function in day to day activities. Research has also indicated that chiropractic care and functional rehabilitation, over a five month span has proven to be as successful as microdiscectomy in the management of most disc injuries.

NECK PAIN

What causes neck pain? Neck pain is very common in today’s society.  Most neck pain is caused by tight muscles due to poor posture.

Most of us sit at a desk all day without correct sitting mechanics or a properly designed work station.  As a result we get tight, achy muscles in our upper back and necks which can cause a misalignment along the facet joints of the spine.  This misalignment can cause muscles to spasm and guard in the neck, making the pain even worse.  Poor posture is one of the many causes of neck pain, but there is a way to get relief.

How to get Neck Pain Relief

Only by combining gentle chiropractic care with soft tissue mobilization and stretching and strengthening the neck and thoracic spine will your pain go away and stay away. At Head 2 Toe Spine & Sports Therapy, we will also teach you how to sit properly and how to transition from sitting all day to working out.  We will also help you design your workstation so that you can stay healthy.

HEADACHES

Causes of Muscle Tension Headaches

Misalignment of the facet joints in the cervical spine and tight muscles from emotional stress or poor posture interfere with the sensitive nerve fibers at the base of the scull.  This causes both a vascular response and a pain response, contributing to migraine and tension headaches.

Chiropractic and Soft Tissue Mobilization for Headaches

Chiropractic care is effective in relieving muscle tension and migraine headaches by treating the source of the problem. Gentle chiropractic manipulation and soft tissue therapy reduces the body’s pain signals and not only relieves the headache, but is preventative for future headaches.

Unfortunately, many people are not aware that gentle chiropractic care and soft tissue mobilization are successful and effective ways to make the pain go away.  Remember, not all chiropractic treatment involves ‘cracking your neck’. People will avoid chiropractors because they are scared of this protocol. There are more gentle ways of resolving spinal misalignment that are very successful, especially in combination with soft tissue therapy.

Get relief and make your appointment today.  We want to get to the root of your headaches and migraines.
