Seeing a chiropractor can yield many benefits that dramatically improve one’s physical and emotional well-being. Yet many people think to see a chiropractor only when something has gone wrong. Or when they can no longer tolerate their pain symptoms. A chiropractor can help prevent something from going wrong in the first place.
While most people know it is time to see a chiropractor if they are experiencing back pain, there are other clues to keep in mind. Here are some signs of when you should see a chiropractor:
Joint or Muscle Pain
If you are experiencing pain in your muscles and joints. Your pain could be due to problems with musculoskeletal alignment.
A chiropractor is trained to make sure your body is functioning as optimally as possible. They do this by using spinal manipulations to relieve pain in your joints and muscles. These spinal adjustments will increase blood flow and nerve conductivity to the joints and muscles that are experiencing pain.
Your Job Requires You to Sit for Long Periods of Time
If your job requires you to sit for long periods of time, it is not uncommon to end up with poor posture. Poor posture puts unwanted pressure on the upper back, neck, and shoulders. The pressure can cause the discs and bones to shift enough to cause problems such as a slipped or herniated disc. A chiropractor can make sure your spine is aligned correctly, so you do not run into any future problems.
Chronic Back Pain
One of the most obvious signs that a chiropractic visit is needed is if you are experiencing chronic back pain. There are multiple factors that can contribute to back pain, such as posture, how long you’re on your feet each day, and the type of work that you do. A chiropractic doctor can provide you with pain relief without the need for invasive surgery or narcotics.
You Were Involved in a Recent Accident
Being involved in an accident, such as a car accident, can cause serious injuries that only an experienced chiropractor can help heal. Many chiropractors specialize in car accident injuries, and are able to diagnose and properly treat a multitude of different injuries. After being involved in an accident, seeing a chiropractor should be a top priority.
Sharp, Shooting Pain in Your Legs
If you are experiencing a sharp, shooting pain in your legs, or tingling and weakness, this could be a sign that you are suffering from a pinched nerve or slipped disc.
A trained chiropractor can diagnose the cause of the pain in your leg and perform a spinal adjustment to alleviate the unwanted pressure that is being placed on the nerve and causing you pain.
