Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that involves assessment, diagnosis and treatment of various musculoskeletal problems. Chiropractic care is a widely utilized and popular form of treatment for many physical conditions, such as
- Neck Pain
- Knee Pain
- Back Pain
- Numbness and Tingling
- Hip Pain
If you are in pain and trying to decide what avenue to take, here are five warning signs that you should see a Chiropractor immediately:
- Persistent Headaches: Frequent headaches are a warning sign that something is wrong in the body. A Chiropractor can diagnose the cause of your headaches and work with you on a treatment plan to make them stop.
- Recent Accident: Trauma from a Car Accident, Sports Injury, or a Slip and Fall can cause severe injuries even if the injury is not visible.
- Chronic Pain: Constant, chronic pain in your joints or muscles is a strong indication to see a Chiropractor. They can help to relieve pain throughout your body without resorting to the use of prescription drugs or surgery.
- Rely On Pain Medication: Chiropractic Care can work without pain medication. If you find yourself reaching for a bottle of pain pills it may be time to treat the cause of your problem instead of masking your symptoms with medication.
- Limited Range Of Motion: If you are having difficulty turning your neck as far as you used to, or your arms and legs are not as flexible, you should consider seeing a Chiropractor to regain your range of motion.
