Although chiropractic treatment is most often associated with back pain and injuries, a chiropractor can help to ease symptoms and restore or improve mobility from a number of orthopedic, traumatic, or sports related injuries. The chiropractors at King Chiropractic Institute, which has offices in Urbana, Potomac, Clarksburg and Gaithersburg, MD, offer treatment for trauma or overuse injuries sustained through car accidents, falls or workplace injuries.
What Conditions and Injuries do Chiropractors Treat?
A chiropractor can provide pain relief and rehabilitation for a number of musculoskeletal and spinal conditions such as:
- Herniated disc
- Pinched nerves
- Dislocations (subluxation)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Neck, arm, and back pain
- Tennis elbow
- Shoulder tendonitis
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Low back pain
Who Should See a Chiropractor?
Chiropractic treatment can be used for both rehabilitative and preventive purposes. Everyone's body responds differently to strains, trauma and inactivity. One of the most common reasons to see a chiropractor is for chronic back or joint pain and stiffness. Other scenarios where a chiropractor may be able to help you include:
- You are physically active/play sports/prone to injury
- Suffer from chronic tension headaches and migraines
- Lead a sedentary lifestyle
- Perform repetitive physical tasks
- Have had limited success/relief with other forms of treatment
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
An adjustment or chiropractic manipulation is performed to relieve pain and stiffness from a slipped or dislocated disc or vertebrae. The goal is to stabilize the affected vertebrae in order to reduce symptoms and help improve range of motion.
Are Adjustments Painful?
Some people may experience some initial discomfort, but the goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to relieve pain. Consult with your doctor and chiropractor about the treatment option that is best for you.
