Everybody in the DFW region understands the connection between back pain and chiropractic care. When you hear chiropractor, you think of loud pops and cracks in a patient’s neck and back.
In reality, most of the conditions we treat at Peralta Chiropractic do suffer from some form of neck or back pain. However, neck and back discomfort are only a small percentage of the conditions that we have the capacity to treat. Utilizing our extensive knowledge of anatomy and physical medicine, we can apply chiropractic principles of adjustments and manipulations to improve numerous conditions.
If you aren’t happy with the progress you’ve experienced through previous treatments, consider what chiropractic care can do for your overall health and wellbeing. Give the experts at Peralta Chiropractic a call at (214) 942-3700 to see what our Dallas chiropractic team can do for you.
While pinpointing the cause for your migraine symptoms can be difficult, general stress and physiological release has shown to shorten migraine pain and reduce patient discomfort. Through manipulation of the soft tissue around the neck and head, chiropractors can help eliminate the tension that may be causing your symptoms.
#2 High Blood Pressure
Just as chiropractic adjustments work to realign vertebrae in the spine and broken bones, they too can be effective in promoting proper alignment/bloodflow for arteries. For patients with high blood pressure (hypertension), certain chiropractic specialists have the ability to manipulate the upper (cervical) spine to reduce blockages that are reducing bloodflow in key arteries found at the back of the skull. This increase in bloodflow will help reduce high blood pressure.
#3 Ear Disorders (Hearing Loss & Tinnitus)
If you are experiencing an ear disorder with an un-identifiable cause, you may have a problem with your central nervous system (CNS). As the spine is the pathway for all nerve activity within your body, any excess pressure or damage placed on the spinal cord could lead to a number of disorders. Chiropractic treatments can alleviate spinal cord pressure and improve CNS function.
Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinus tract along the cheeks, nose and inner eyebrows. This inflammation can cause swelling, congestions, pain, headaches and a number of uncomfortable symptoms. Through chiropractic manipulation therapy, chiropractors can shift the soft tissue and bones in the head to reduce swelling and inflammation and clear your sinus system.
As medical specialists, chiropractors have a great grasp of overall health best practices that reach beyond simply back and neck pain. This includes general health and wellness advice, especially for diet and exercise. As weight factors into joint and overall health, chiropractors frequently advise patients on how they can improve their movement and eat a more balanced diet.
Another way in which patients can lose weight from chiropractic care is the improvement they experience to their overall strength and mobility, especially following an injury. By taking an active treatment approach like chiropractic adjustments, you ensure that you are able to return to exercise as soon as possible and avoid long stints of inactivity that can lead to weight gain.
While your chiropractor is certainly not a psychiatrist, it doesn’t mean that she can’t improve your mental state with productive chiropractic care. Pain, especially chronic pain, can be debilitating and life-altering. If you only manage your pain with pain pills, you can easily sink into a depressive state. In fact, patients with chronic pain are 3 times more likely to develop signs of depression or anxiety (source).
Thus, successful chiropractic care on conditions that have seen little improvement from other medical treatments, can provide a substantial boost to the patient’s psyche.
#7 Inflammatory Bowel Disorder
When you experience chronic inflammation around the bowel tissue you likely have Crohn’s Disease. While the direct cause of Crohn’s Disease is uncertain, there are treatments that can provide the general relief and overall improvement to your immune, nerve and digestive health that can relieve inflammatory bowel disorder symptoms. Using regular spinal manipulation therapy, chiropractors can relieve tension, inflammation and nerve pressure that may be contributing to your Crohn’s symptoms.
