When to See Our Team for Chiropractic Care?
At Capitol Rehab of Crofton, we are dedicated to providing professional and exceptional chiropractic care to our patients. We promote natural healing and pain management for back and neck health, as well as various other conditions. The body is a complex structure. Often, an injury in one area can affect different regions unknown to the patient. We are committed to helping patients by detecting the cause of the pain and treating the source. Our chiropractic care uses a natural approach to healing the body without using invasive procedures or medicine.
Understanding the Spinal Column
The spinal column is made up of bones (vertebrae) surrounded by several nerves, muscles, ligaments, and various other fibers. If the spinal column becomes misaligned, the surrounding tissues can be affected at varying degrees. The pain can range from mild backache to debilitating pain that can leave you on bed rest for several days or weeks. Misalignment can place pressure on the surrounding muscles or nerves. When pressure is placed on nerves, pain messages can be transmitted to other regions in the body.
Types of Injuries Treated by Our Chiropractors
It’s commonly known that chiropractors can provide immediate relief for back and neck pain through spinal adjustment. This is performed when the vertebrae become misaligned. Misalignment can happen as the result of an auto accident, sports injury, slip and fall, or through poor posture or bad ergonomics. We also treat patients suffering from headaches, sleep apnea, tendonitis, hip and knee pain, and plantar fasciitis.
When to See a Chiropractor
Chiropractic care is ideal for general wellness, maintaining spinal health and alignment. If you’re suffering from back or neck pain that doesn’t resolve itself with a few days, it may be time to see our chiropractors. We treat acute pain caused by traumatic events such as car accidents, falls, or sports injuries.
The treatment we provide will depend on your pain or discomfort. We use spinal decompression, a gentle, manual manipulation of the bones in the spinal column. Massage therapy is also a large part of our chiropractic treatment. Massage therapy loosens the fascia and improves blood circulation, releasing pressure to affected areas. Acupuncture is another form of chiropractic treatment that we use to relieve pain in different areas of the body.
