If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, chiropractic treatments can offer instant and lasting relief. Pain is caused by a number of factors, but our Calgary chiropractors use a holistic treatment approach to dramatically improve your quality of life.
Some of the most common types of chronic pain are listed below:
As people age, the discs that provide cushioning in between the spine’s vertebrae naturally deteriorate. The body also produces less joint (synovial) fluid that lubricates between bones. With less cushioning, the bones are free to move out of place, resulting in muscle pain.
Conditions like scoliosis, arthritis, and fibromyalgia are common causes of joint, muscle, and back pain. With proper chiropractic treatment, pain is considerably reduced without the risk of side effects from medication or surgery.
Sprains, fractures, ruptured discs, torn ligaments, and pulled muscles can all cause considerable pain, compounded by misuse. Chiropractic therapy combines proper alignment with muscle strength training to eliminate pain.
During pregnancy, the body releases a hormone called relaxin, which loosens the joints and makes childbirth possible. However, this hormone may cause bones, especially the pelvis, to become misaligned. Regular chiropractic treatment during pregnancy can greatly reduce pain and discomfort during the gestational period.
By receiving treatment from a certified Calgary chiropractor, you can experience significant benefits beyond pain relief alone. Medical research shows patients who get chiropractic adjustments experience increased range of motion and muscle strength, reduced muscle spasms, and decreased nerve irritation.
