October is National Chiropractic Health Month
This month is a great time to reflect on the many reasons you should visit a chiropractor and an opportunity to spread awareness about this safe, non-drug-based resource for pain relief.
Back pain is a common complaint that people use to visit a chiropractor. The treatment of nervous system disorders and musculoskeletal problems is the main focus of chiropractic offices. Regular adjustments can be beneficial for your overall health.
Chiropractors can also treat neck pain and pain in the arms or legs. Chiropractors can also help with headaches, which are often caused by muscle tension, athletic injuries, injuries from accidents, or muscle strains. A chiropractor can be visited for many reasons. Regular visits can improve joint mobility and decrease pain. For osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia, you may also visit a chiropractor. Chiropractic medicine can help you find relief from acute and chronic pain.
Chiropractic care can treat sciatica, another common condition. Sciatica can cause pain, tingling or burning in the buttocks or to the foot. This is often an indication of a bigger problem. Although some doctors may believe that ibuprofen is the best treatment for sciatica pain and inflammation, adjustments are more effective. Sciatica can be caused many different ways. Once you understand the root cause, you will find the best treatment.
These are just some of the many ways that chiropractic medicine can help you. Celebrate this month by scheduling an appointment and spreading the word!
