Conditions That Our Chiropractor Treat Effectively
Chiropractic treatment is available for a wide array of physical conditions and injuries. Instead of just prescribing pain and anti-inflammatory medication, our chiropractor will get to the source of your pain or immobility to correct the problem. We will also help you with any lifestyle changes you may need in order to improve your overall wellness. The staff at the Teasel Chiropractic Clinic in Brecksville, OH are well-equipped to enhance your life and improve your health.
Chiropractic Treatment of Whiplash
Whiplash is an injury often suffered in a car accident, but it can also happen while playing a contact sport. Your head is forced in one direction and then suddenly forced in the opposite direction. The force overextends your neck's muscles and connective tissues. It can also affect the alignment of the vertebrae in your neck.
- Sharp pain in the neck
- Stiffness in the neck
- Pain that radiates to the upper back, shoulders, and arms
- Loss of motion in the neck
- Headaches that start at the base of the skull
Our chiropractor will check and correct the alignment of your neck, making sure it is sitting correctly on your spine. Massage and ultrasound therapies can help to alleviate any swelling, thus reducing pain and enhancing your mobility.
Chiropractic Treatment of Low Back Pain
Your lower back pain can be spine-related, nerve-related, muscle-related, or a combination of all three. A vertebra out of alignment can push against a nerve or put unnatural pressure against your muscles. By doing a full inspection of your spine, our chiropractor can determine if a vertebra is out of alignment which may be the cause of your low back pain. By manually nudging the vertebra back into its proper position, pressure can be relieved from an affected nerve. Muscles can also relax since proper pressure will again be applied to them.
Your sciatic nerve exits your spine in your lower back. Any pressure placed on it can cause you excruciating pain. A vertebra that is out of alignment, a swelling caused by an injury, or even a lesion growing on your spine can irritate your sciatic nerve. A medical doctor will have to treat the lesion, but our chiropractor can care for the other medical conditions.
Readjusting a vertebra or herniated disc may relieve the pressure on your sciatic nerve. Massage and ultrasound therapies can reduce the swelling around the nerve, allowing it to relax and work normally.
Chiropractic Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The median nerve travels from your forearm, through the wrist, into your hand. The narrow passageway in the wrist is called the "carpal tunnel". Any swelling or injury in the wrist can cause the median nerve to be pressed against the carpal bones located in the carpal tunnel. This pressure on the median nerve will cause you great pain, numbness in your hand, and weakness in your grip.
Through various treatment methods, our chiropractor will work to reduce the swelling in your wrist. This will allow the nerve to follow its normal path through the wrist. We will help you with exercises to strengthen your wrist and forearm.
