What Does a Chiropractor In Hazeldean Do?

Chiropractors worldwide and Chiropractor In Hazeldean are qualified medical physicians. Chiros specialise in treating health conditions related to the nervous system, the musculoskeletal system and general health concerns.

Since they are doctors, they can use tools and machinery to help diagnose conditions in patients and work with the patient to find a more natural solution to recovery or healing.

In chiropractic, there’s minimum use of over the counter medication. Most of what chiropractors do follows a non-invasive approach when dealing with patients.

Chiros often make spinal adjustments and stretches for the patient or use an sEMG (Static and Dynamic Surface Electromyography). The sEMG machine can determine whether or not the muscles are overworked, “hypertonic” or “hypotonic” underworked, and weak.

Chiropractor In Hazeldean also use specific stretches and exercises to help release tension, reducing pain.

#1 Chronic tension headaches and cervicogenic headaches

Both tension and cervicogenic headaches are manageable through chiropractic care. This is especially because these headaches can result and progress due to bad posture in patients. Chiropractor In Hazeldean may use the following techniques to help their patients with headaches:

  • Ear wax drainage in babies
  • Implement lifestyle changes
  • Arthritis pain treatment through spinal and joint massage and manipulation
  • Neck pain treatment.

#2 Back and neck pain
Back and neck pain is rated as some of the highest types of pain affecting people’s ability to function daily. Some statistics suggest that 60% to 80% of adults experience back pain, and 20% to 70% may experience neck pain.

#3 Myofascial pain
Myofascial pain is often related to soft tissue, and it occurs due to muscle overuse or previous muscle injury. Still, the pain may occur in other body parts that are not related to the injured part.

#4 Arthritis and joint conditions
Chronic and degenerative conditions like arthritis can lead to severe pain in the joints and reduced functionality. The Chiropractor In Hazeldean may introduce soft muscle and tissue manipulation to reduce the spasms that occur within the muscles which affect the areas around joints.

With arthritic chiropractic treatment, the chiro may also recommend and help the patient to do stretches or active exercise to manage the condition.

#5 Colic in babies
Colic is common, and many parents have experienced their babies crying non-stop for prolonged hours. This happens when the baby is experiencing gas or indigestion. Gentle chiropractic adjustments may reduce the discomfort and may even help the baby sleep better.

What are the Benefits of Visiting a Chiropractor In Hazeldean?

    1. Chiropractors don’t prescribe pain medication and resort to natural healing methods
    2. Chiropractic treatment is non-invasive
    3. The treatment is gentle enough for adults, children and babies, even seniors
    4. Chiropractic care can help improve your posture and ensure your hips are aligned
    5. It is affordable medical care and safer than surgery or OTC (over the counter) medication.

Will it Hurt When the Chiropractor In Hazeldean Adjust My Back?

No. It shouldn’t hurt when a chiropractor adjusts your back. These spinal adjustments are gentle and release air tension within the joints. Sometimes this is what’s needed to help you feel better.

You will probably hear cracking or popping sounds as your back is adjusted, but this is normal. It is the sounds of the air being released after having built up over time.

Do I Need A Chiropractor In Hazeldean?
Even if there aren’t obvious triggers signalling an issue, seeing a Chiropractor In Hazeldean is still beneficial. The chiropractor will be able to look for specific identifiers that could become problematic in the long run.

But, before problems set in, the fantastic thing about checking in with a chiro even when you’re not a regular patient is that they can “catch and fix” the issue before it becomes worse or becomes a degenerating issue.

Take, for example, working long hours at a desk in front of the computer. The hours in that seated position can wreak havoc on your posture, neck and spine. Long-term bad posture like this can also result in frequent headaches due to tension surrounding the upper back and neck muscles.
