At Fargo Chiropractic Center, we pride ourselves with quality chiropractic treatment to get your life back in tip-top shape with greatly reduced pain and greatly increased function and confidence. There are many conditions which can cause pain in an individual, and luckily, there are many conditions treatable by our specialized staff at Fargo Chiropractic Center here in Fargo, North Dakota.
The following is an informative on the conditions that cause individuals inconvenient pain which can be treated with chiropractic adjustments.
First and foremost, what is arthritis?
Arthritis is not actually one common or singular disease. Rather, arthritis is a colloquialism for a series of joint pain or joint diseases that follow similar characteristics. There are actually over 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Arthritis affects people of all sexes, races, and ages, and is the leading cause of disability in the United States.
For arthritis, treatment is rather simple. Arthritis is characterized by pain and inflammation in the joints, which field chiropractors specialize in remedying. By providing adjustments to the joints, as well as enacting exercises, pain and inflammation can be greatly reduced. Our chiropractors are ready to help you through any cases involving arthritis pains and inflammation — without the need for prescriptions or invasive surgeries.
Many are affected by sciatica. Sciatica is pain that radiates and meanders through the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve extends throughout the lower back, into the buttocks, and down the legs. The pain can be found typically on one side, but it can also be found on both sides of the body. The pain is commonly caused by a herniated disk or a protruding bone spur that press on and irate the sciatic nerve. While medication can help, chiropractic treatments can relieve the pain.
Treatment may include adjustments, or ultrasound therapy, which applies subtle heat to improve circulation. Spinal decompression (stretching that tight back that has been compressing for years) may also be used to relieve some potentially herniated disks. Our staff is ready to help you.
Nearly everyone has succumbed to the nauseating and frustrating experience that is a migraine headache at one time or another. Migraines are headaches of varying intensity, which can be caused by a wide array of events, often exercise and stress. For the latter, there are treatments provided that can reduce the frequency or intensity of a migraine headache.
With adjustments and chiropractic massages, pain can be reduced. Sometimes pain can add to our daily stressors, and heightened stressful situations only increase the pain already experienced and further migraine responses. Adjustments not only help alleviate pain in joints, but they can also improve circulation greatly, which allows your body to flow freely and efficiently. Having better circulation can improve cognitive health and how your body responds to stressful hormones and situations.
Neck and back pain are incredibly common and caused by a vast number of situations and circumstances. Pain can be caused from sleeping poorly, in improper positions, falling, physical trauma, overexertion, and a wide array of other causes. When people have been in accidents, they find themselves with herniating disks, or experiencing whiplash, which is a blunt and sudden shock that can cause lots of misalignments. Overexertion can fatigue joints, and falling can place you out of alignment, if you have experienced an intense hit.
Fortunately, these are all easily treatable through adjustments and exercises. Neck adjustments, which are similar in popularity as spinal adjustments, are common for automotive accident victims. The same goes for those who have experienced physical joint trauma due to overexertion, or any force that may have hit joints. Even for those who have slept poorly, adjustments and proper routine stretches go a long way to remedy pain, misalignment, and prevention to repeat misalignments.
Pregnancy is one of the surprisingly treatable phenomena by means of chiropractic adjustments, though it is not incredibly surprising. The reason why pregnant women see chiropractors is because carrying a child applies a lot of stress to the body, especially for first-time pregnancies. The body needs to adjust to a new distribution of weight, and joints can get sore or misaligned from movement and sleep while pregnant. Approximately 50 percent of women will experience back pain while pregnant. With good sense, it is wise to alleviate any aching joints through chiropractic treatment.
By using adjustments (much like for other joint trauma related pain), circulation and proper alignment can be achieved. Our chiropractors are trained professionals and specialize in helping pregnant women achieve proper alignment not only through adjustments, but also through preventative exercises, as well.
