Chiropractic treatments are designed to address tissue damage, joint misalignment, muscle disorders and problems with the spine. In addition to treating multiple conditions, this therapy can correct bad posture and localized joint issues, which can have a positive impact on your overall health.

Chiropractic care provides holistic healing and enables patients to improve their bodily functions and lifestyle. Here are some conditions that can easily be treated by chiropractic.

Back Pain

Back pain is a common problem faced by millions of people around the world. Chiropractic therapy can be used to treat general discomfort, localized pain, postural issues, and other musculoskeletal problems.

Chiropractors mobilize, adjust and use traction to realign your spine. This relieves back pain and improves mobility.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a condition that affects the joints. Swelling and inflammation in the joint tissue limits mobility and makes routine work quite painful and difficult. There are two types of arthritis—Rheumatoid arthritis that results from malfunctioning of the immune system; osteoarthritis that results from tissue degradation, hormonal imbalance, or vitamin deficiencies.

PRP Therapy

Chiropractors use trigger point therapy, joint manipulation, and cold laser therapy to relieve swelling and stiffness.

Neck pain

Neck pain occurs due to an issue in the cervical spine. Bad posture, sedentary lifestyle, injury and other medical conditions can cause tightness, swelling, and immobility of the neck. Chiropractors use soft tissue massage therapy, electrical stimulations, and trigger point therapy to treat this part of the spine.

Traumatic injuries

Muscles and tissues need to be rehabilitated after suffering from a traumatic injury. Chiropractic is a great way to restore mobility after car accidents, sports injury or slip and fall incidents. The chiropractor will develop a comprehensive treatment plan that includes therapy, exercise and dietary requirements for fast recovery.

Musculoskeletal Conditions

Chiropractors can adjust and realign the body’s joint and correct the alignment of your spine. Many people suffer from musculoskeletal problems like,

  • Whiplash
  • Tendinitis
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Myelopathy
  • Ligament injuries
  • Fractures
  • Epicondylitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

With help of ultrasound and x-rays, your practitioner will diagnose your condition and provide a comprehensive treatment plan. If a condition can’t be treated with therapy alone, he/she will devise a plan in conjunction with an invasive procedure like surgery.

Chiropractic care can improve your health and enhance your mobility. Don’t delay or neglect your muscular pain and swellings and head over to the nearest Divergent Health Group in Calgary.

In addition to chiropractic care, the multidisciplinary clinic offers PRP Therapy, Spinal Decompression, and other massage and pain-relieving therapies. Call 4039098111 to book an appointment.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
