Common Conditions Treated by the Chiropractor at Injury 2 Health Chiropractic in Lawrenceville, GA
Subluxation – When some type of force causes one or more vertebrae to become misaligned in relation to the next, it is called a subluxation. Just as there are different causes of subluxation, there are also many potential symptoms. A misalignment can cause emotional problems, physical symptoms including pain, soreness, and headaches. The condition also affects your range of motion and mobility. Chiropractic manipulation realigns the affected vertebra and improves the related symptoms.
Herniated Disc – A vertebral disc is a rubbery, cushion-like disc that sits between the bones in the vertebrae to protect them from pressure. When the disc ruptures and allows some of the jelly-like fluid in the center to leak out, it is called a herniated, ruptured, or slipped disc. Sometimes, the herniated disc irritates nearby nerves, causing pain, weakness, or numbness in one of the limbs.
Back Pain – More than one-third of all patients who visit our chiropractor are seeking relief from back pain, most often in the lower back. Car accident injuries, sports injuries, and muscles sprains are just some of the causes of back pain. The chiropractor might use a variety of treatment types, depending on the cause of the back pain. Spinal manipulation is the basis of most chiropractic treatment, but other types of treatment might be applied as well.
Sciatica – Sciatica is the pain caused when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed in the lower back. Subluxation, herniated discs, sitting on a wallet in one’s back pocket, pregnancy, and some health conditions like diabetes are some of the causes sciatica. The pain caused by sciatica varies greatly in type and intensity. Chiropractic treatment frees restricted movement and restores alignment to the vertebrae.
Migraine and Other Headaches – A misalignment of the spine can affect the nerves that run to the head. A proper adjustment can help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines and other types of headaches.
