There is a type of care for pain relief that is growing in popularity. The reason is that it does not rely on medication that might be addictive. Also, it does not use invasive procedures, surgery for example. Those suffering, who live in the area, turn to a Dallas GA Chiropractic Clinic for pain alleviation.
There are diseases and conditions that are not responsive to chiropractic methods. That will be noted during the intensive evaluation that is done prior to any care being recommended. Those who will not benefit from chiropractic care are referred to the appropriate health care provider.
The first appointment is spent doing a thorough evaluation of your spine and extremities. For example, the pain in your lower back that radiates down one leg might be sciatica, caused by compression on the sciatic nerve. The pressure is often the result of a spinal subluxation, which is the chiropractic term for a misalignment.
Headache pain is often caused by pressure on one or more of the cervical vertebrae, those located in the neck. The pain may affect the shoulder and radiate down the arm. The chiropractor knows which of the thirty-three small hollow bones that make up the spine, is responsible for pain in each part of your body.
Back pain is the complaint heard most often. It can be temporarily disabling. You can help in the evaluation by describing the onset, frequency and intensity of the hurt you are experiencing. Your back will be examined and range of motion testing done. An x-ray is usually taken. In most cases spinal adjustments are the recommended care.
A series of office visits will be scheduled at a time convenient for you. Your age and general overall health will determine how quickly you will respond to the adjustments. Over time you can expect your pain to be alleviated. A return to work may be possible. Your good quality of life will return, enabling you to take part in recreational activities you enjoyed before the back pain started.
