Back pain, neck pain and the occasional adjustment are commonly what brings people in to see a chiropractor, but did you know that there are a slew of other issues you could be experiencing that can be treated with regular chiropractic care? There are many reasons you may want to find a chiropractor and these five signs are your indication it’s time to make an appointment:

  • You are experiencing chronic headaches, neck pain or lower back pain
  • You have been in a car accident or sustained another injury
  • You constantly try to correct poor posture
  • You are experiencing back pain due to a compressed spine
  • You have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep

If you haven’t visited a chiropractor before now, you might be surprised to learn about the various treatments they can offer for obvious and not-so-obvious injuries alike.

Chronic Pain – Headaches, Neck Pain, and Lower Back Pain

Nagging pain that just doesn’t subside is a burden no one should have to deal with. If you’ve been frustrated with your body and wondering why over the counter pain medication isn’t working anymore, it’s time to find out how a chiropractor can help reduce or diminish your pain.

Post-Accident: Car Accidents Or Other Traumatic Injury

If you’ve been in a car accident or have experienced whiplash from another traumatic injury, you are a prime candidate for chiropractic care. Inflammation often occurs after car accidents and other serious injuries. The combination of inflammation and pain is likely responsible for the loss of mobility in your back, and around your neck and shoulders. Chiropractic adjustments release anti-inflammatory chemicals to help reduce swelling and contribute to healing.

Poor Posture

Poor posture could just be a bad habit you’ve been trying to kick on your own, but you’ve probably found it impossible to correct. If you’ve been trying to remind yourself to stand up straighter and not to slouch, you would benefit from chiropractic care. Change won’t happen overnight, but with regular adjustments, your shoulders and spine will begin to loosen up and respond to care directed at your posture.

5 Signs It’s Time To See A Chiropractor

Back Pain Caused By A Compressed Spine

There are many things that can contribute to a compressed spine including how much time you spend sitting in a day, whether you take time to stretch and exercise, and generally how much pressure is being put on your spine on a regular basis. A chiropractor will help ease any pain you experience by using spinal decompression therapy to stretch the spine and take pressure off of its discs and nerves. This treatment is not painful and it should provide some relief even as soon as after the first session.

Poor Sleep

A night (or dozens) of restlessness can make anyone crankier than they would otherwise want to be. Whether your issue is due to a lack of sleep or a low quality of sleep, chiropractic care can help mitigate the problems you’re experiencing and set you on a road to better sleep success. Chiropractic care for sleep focuses on relaxing your body by easing muscle tension, relieving pain, stimulating blood flow and improving your central nervous system’s function. When all of these are in working order, sound sleep will be just around the corner.
