Chiropractors treat conditions that relate to a body’s structure. The focus of chiropractic care is to relieve pain and improve overall body function through adjustments of the body. By restoring your body’s natural alignment, our chiropractor can relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself. At Allegheny Physical Medicine, we have shared the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Bethel Park and South Hills, PA for many years. Read on to learn more about the conditions treated by our chiropractor.
Chiropractors often treat neck pain with spinal adjustments. These neck adjustments are usually coupled with exercises and may work better for neck pain than pain medications.
Lower back pain is the most common reason people seek treatment from a chiropractor. Those with low back pain recall receiving better relief from going to a chiropractor over their family doctor. Sacroiliac (SI) joint problems may be felt in the buttock or back of the thigh. During a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor not only fixes these problems but also teaches how to avoid straining the SI joint with core strengthening exercises.
Headaches & Migraines
Adjusting the neck can relieve headaches and migraines. Tension headaches are common headaches that cause pain in the back of the head and neck caused by stress and bad posture. Proper neck adjustment and stretching exercises, coupled with proper posture and body mechanics are key to this treatment. Research has shown that chiropractic spinal manipulations can decrease both the frequency and intensity of migraines.
Knee Pain and Sports Injuries
Most often, wear and tear of the knee joint causes knee pain. Those treated with chiropractic adjustment have less pain and better overall movement after just a few weeks of treatment. Chiropractic care will both relieve your pain and reduce your chances of being injured again in the future.
Whiplash Related to Auto Injury
Whiplash is a neck injury that is often caused by car accidents. Whiplash induces pain and stiffness in the neck area. Pain may worsen when the head is turned, as well as dizziness or a sick feeling in the stomach. If left untreated, whiplash can lead to long-term pain and immobility.
