Chiropractic Alignments Provided an Arlington, TX Chiropractor
The standard treatment for conditions that cause pain is typically an analgesic, whether it's narcotic or nonnarcotic. Either kind has the possibility of side effects. Use of pain reliever leads to damage to the internal organs, however, chiropractic alignments from Strasser Dynamic Chiropractic, serving Arlington, TX and the surrounding region, are a nonsurgical method to reduce your pain and treat your condition.
Definition of Chiropractic Adjustments
A chiropractic alignment is a treatment provided by a chiropractor that corrects misalignment in the spine. During the treatment, our chiropractor moves the spine, so both the vertebrae and discs align with one another. This alleviates pressure on the nearby nerves and soft tissue. It may reduce tension on your upper shoulders and neck, relieving headache pain. It's doesn't have the potential for addiction, and it doesn't cause the harmful side effects that medications do. It also targets underlying causes of pain, rather than just covering them up. Sometimes, we use adjustments as a sole treatment for a condition while some cases require us to utilize other treatments in addition to alignments.
Musculoskeletal Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
An adjustment can reduce general back pain. It eases pressure on the muscles and other soft tissue. It takes pressure off the nerves that can lead to pain. Numbness, weakness, tingling, or burning. It does the same for the neck if you have an adjustment on the upper region of your back and lower portion of your neck.
We use adjustments to treat a wide variety of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. For instance, an alignment can help patients who have age-related changes in their spine like degenerative disc disease. This particular issue occurs when the discs in your back begin to wear out from age. You experience pain and are at a greater risk of injury. An alignment takes pressure off the discs in your back. It can also help if you have an injury to the sciatic nerve in your back. By taking alleviating pressure on your sciatic nerve, you won't have as much pain. It also helps reduce other symptoms like tingling and numbness. Additionally, an alignment assists in reducing pain from spinal stenosis, a condition that occurs when your spine narrows and places pressure on the nerves. Other musculoskeletal issues benefited by spinal alignments include herniated discs, bulging discs, poor posture, and arthritis.
If you have frequent headaches or migraines, a spinal alignment reduces pressure on your neck and upper back, both of which are sometimes causes of headaches. Not to mention, a spinal adjustment optimizes blood flow to your brain, which can help you receive an adequate amount of nutrients.
