Lower back pain is a common complaint we hear from our patients, and is important that it is addressed as soon as possible. Pain in the lower part of your back may be caused by such things as:
- Degeneration of the discs between the vertebrae in your lower back.
- Slipped discs pressing on nerves.
- Accidents or other trauma that apply pressure on nerves, or muscles that have been strained, pulling the back out of alignment.
- Poor posture – for example sitting at a computer for many hours – creating stress on the nerves of your lower back.
- Conditions such as scoliosis, which is a sideways curvature of the spine, placing stress on the vertebrae, muscles and nerves in your back.
Chiropractic care is a proven and natural way to manage and relieve swelling and pain caused by low back pain. Seeing the chiropractor on a regular basis provides patients with low back pain treatment that’s a safe, non-invasive, alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pain medications. Under the care of our experienced chiropractic team, we offer all-natural relief from back pains.
Here’s what some of your neighbors said about their experience: “I had lower back pain that lasted for months. Massages didn’t work, and I wasn’t about to take painkillers. After Dr Smith took the time to explain what was going on and my options, we started a course of treatment. Almost immediately, I felt a release of pressure and lower back pain and my back is getting better daily with no medication.”
If you are suffering from pain in your lower back, call our friendly staff today and we’ll get you on your way to relief from low back pain.
Migraines and frequent headaches can cause head or neck pain and is something you’ll want to take care of before it affects your health and lifestyle. Headaches are a very common symptom experienced by the majority of Americans. Headaches can come from subluxations (misalignments) in the cervical (neck) spine. As common as migraines and headaches are, they are a symptom of a problem with pressure on the nerves in the neck.
When our patients come in to get treated for a migraine or persistent headache, we notice several causes, such as:
- Poor posture while standing or sitting at a desk or computer
- Excessive texting or playing handheld video games
- Not drinking enough water
- Poor nutrition from eating a lot of processed foods, including sugars, sodas, white flour, and fried foods.
- Medications and drugs
- Hormonal changes
At Revvl Health & Chiropractic, we get great results for our patients suffering from headaches and migraines. The first step will be to identify the root cause of your pain and then work to correct the underlying cause using proven natural and safe treatments. If you do not find and correct the source of your headaches or migraines, they will continue and may even get worse.
Neck pain usually occurs when the joints and muscles in the neck become irritated or inflamed. The pain can be minor and easily ignored, or it may be so severe, it’s debilitating. Common symptoms of neck pain include:
- Stiff neck with limited range of motion.
- Concentrated sharp or stabbing pain in the neck.
- General soreness or tightness of your neck muscles.
- Radiating pain from the neck to shoulders, arms, fingers and head.
Common causes of neck pain include:
- Sleeping in an odd position
- Poor sitting posture
- Sporting injuries
- Whiplash from an auto accident
At Revvl Health & Chiropractic, our goal is to find out what’s causing your neck pain. By correcting your problem through gentle adjustments to the spine, we can eliminate your pain and suffering. An additional benefit is helping to restore normal function to the nervous system, and increase your range of motion.
Numbness and tingling in arms, hands, fingers, legs and feet are abnormal sensations that may be caused by:
- Remaining in the same seated or standing position for a long period of time.
- Injury to a nerve, such as a neck injury may cause you to feel numbness anywhere along your arm or hand.
- A low back injury can cause numbness or tingling down the back of your leg.
- Pressure on the spinal nerves, such as from a herniated disk.
- Pressure on peripheral nerves from enlarged blood vessels, tumors, or infection.
- Lack of blood supply to an area caused by cholesterol build up from atherosclerosis in the legs.
- Frostbite reducing blood supply.
- Pressure on a nerve in the wrist.
Because numbness and tingling is so often associated with nerve issues, it makes sense to turn to a qualified chiropractor if you’re dealing with any of these issues. Spine misalignments can cause a variety of health issues, including pinched nerves, or even carpal tunnel syndrome, all of which may be contributing to your numbness or tingling sensations. Misalignments of the spine can cause nerve interference which can affect proper blood flow and the communication between the brain and the rest of the body.
Depending on your situation, our doctors will perform gentle adjustments that will remove misalignments and nerve interference. This opens up blood flow and corrects the associated health concerns, so your body can once again function as it should. Numbness and tingling can be corrected with regular chiropractic care.
Sports injuries are not just limited to professional athletes. Due to the nature of high impact and contact sports, injuries are quite common even for the amateur athlete. That is why we believe that chiropractic treatment in sports is now a necessity.
Many of our patients come in to see us because of injuries from sports such as:
- Ankle strains.
- Back pain caused by subluxations, herniated discs, or fractures.
- Neck pain caused by harsh impacts.
- Shin splints.
- Torn ACL injuries.
- Tennis elbow.
- Runner’s knee.
- Heel spurs (plantar fasciitis).
There are many ways you can get a sports injury. Not warming up properly, high impact workouts, or just by making repetitive motions, can lead to a sports injury. If you suffered a sports injury and the symptoms persist despite icing and resting, you should call Revvl Health & Chiropractic to come in and see one of our doctors for a complete check up.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder which ravages its sufferers with widespread sensitivity and sometimes debilitating pain across the entire body. Fatigue and disturbed sleep typically accompany Fibromyalgia, along with mood inconsistencies and cognitive problems.
While medication and treatment are often used for fibromyalgia sufferers, none of them seek to relieve the cause of the pain and discomfort, rather only cover up the symptoms.
Symptoms associated with fibromyalgia can be linked to nerve interference in the central nervous system. With appropriate chiropractic care, spinal misalignments are removed and nerve interference is eliminated. When the root cause of the fibromyalgia pain is dealt with, symptoms will not return once eradicated, provided that spinal health remains a priority.
While the above is a general statement, if you suffer from Fibromyalgia, you should come into our office for a thorough check up before we can suggest a course of treatment as all patients require a custom treatment plan.
If you or a loved one suffers from fibromyalgia pain, rest assured that the pain does not have to continue to disrupt your life. Contact Revvll Health & Chiropractic and set up a consultation today to get you on a better path to a pain-free life.
