A headache is a very generalized term given to pain that is felt in the head or sometimes the neck. There are many different types of pain associated with headaches ranging from acute localized discomfort to a more generalized ache. Some headaches may appear suddenly and only last for a short period of time while others may build gradually and last for several hours.
Neck pain is a relatively common ailment, of which most of us will experience at least once in our lifetime. In most cases, neck pain will improve and disappear on its own, but if you frequently suffer from this problem, or find that conventional ways of relieving your pain are not working, you may want to consider chiropractic care.
Most chest pain isn’t a sign of anything serious and often isn’t caused by a heart problem. Nevertheless, it’s important to get it checked out. Heartburn, chest infections, muscle strain and anxiety can all cause chest pain. Some of these can be alleviated with chiropractic care. More serious causes of chest pain include angina, pericarditis and a heart attack. If you experience sudden chest pain that spreads to your arms, back, neck or jaw, causes you to feel short of breath, sweat or feel/be sick and lasts more than 15 minutes, it’s essential that you call 911 immediately as you could be having a heart attack.
The shoulder joint is one of the most complex joints of the human body. The shoulder depends on multiple systems of ligaments, muscles and tendons. These systems work together to stabilize the shoulder and provide functional movement along with allowing other supporting joints to do the same.
As people age, it is a common often belief that the pain and discomfort associated with our joints is a normal occurrence that we are forced to live with. While our joints can experience levels of degradation as we age, the pain and reduced mobility that is often associated with arthritis doesn’t have to be something that we suffer through. Instead, let's review some of the facts around chiropractic care and how it can be beneficial in treating the pain associated with arthritis.
As the professional community ages, the diagnoses of carpal tunnel syndrome continue to rise. Carpal tunnel syndrome is commonly associated with the repetitive movement related to typing on a keyboard with improper hand positioning. Carpal tunnel syndrome creates a burning, numbness, or tingling sensation in the hands or wrists and can occur on one or both sides.
Lower back pain is an exceptionally common complaint and it is estimated that 80% of Americans will suffer from it at some point during their lifetime. Lower back pain is also a leading cause of absence from work due to ill health, even though more than half of all cases are believed to be a direct result of the patient doing a job that involves continual sitting.
Hip pain can be temporary or chronic, and can be caused by a range of different factors, the most common of which is osteoarthritis. Patients with osteoarthritis experience inflammation of the tissues around the joint including damage to cartilage, and this can lead to pain, stiffness and mobility issues. Less commonly, hip pain can be caused by other issues with the musculoskeletal system such as problems with the shape of the bones, infections or fractures. The good news is hip pain can nearly always be improved using chiropractic treatment.
Knee pain is a very common issue, and in most cases, occurs as a result of an injury to the joint and surrounding soft tissue. This can be from an individual event or as a result of overuse, such as through playing sport. Stiffness and inflammation often accompany knee pain, and you may find it difficult to use the joint as you would normally. Chiropractic treatment is highly beneficial at treating knee pain and its associated effects, as well as the underlying cause.
Many people live with consistent and regular foot pain. While others may have pain that occurs only when they are engaged in certain activities. While orthotics may not be the right answer for everyone to help with this pain, it’s a good idea to consult with a professional to decide if orthotics are a good option for you.
