Medical Studies Show Chiropractic Effective for Many Conditions

Chiropractic Helps more Than Back Pain

Chiropractic is about more than just back pain relief. It’s the natural, whole body approach to wellness. Medical studies show that chiropractic is effective for the following conditions:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Neck Pain
  • Auto Injuries
  • Tinnitus
  • Jaw Disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Shoulder Pain

Patients suffering from the conditions above have found relief with chiropractic.

Chiropractic Helps Conditions Linked to Aging

Chiropractic can also be beneficial for conditions associated with aging, like the following:

  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal Degeneration
  • Osteoarthritis
    • Knees
    • Hips
    • Hands

Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Help Nerve Pain

By using pressure on irritated nerves, chiropractic adjustments can alleviate nerve impingement, radicular pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica.

Relief from Pregnancy Discomfort with Chiropractic

Chiropractic care can also help with pregnancy related pain and discomfort, in addition to correcting dysfunctions in the sacroiliac joint and pelvis.

Chiropractic Can Improve Overall Health

While chiropractic can relieve a number of pain conditions, it can also improve your overall health. Research shows that spinal adjustments can reduce blood pressure, soothe stress hormones, and boost immunity.
