Why You Need A Raleigh Chiropractor
When you have low back pain, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, stress, asthma, allergies, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, menstrual cramping, muscle pain, injuries, etc. What do you usually do? Is it Advil, Aleve, Tylenol, Ibuprophen or prescription pain killers that you reach for? Most of us usually pop the pill for a temporary relief, until the next time. And most of the time, there usually is a next time. Right? But wouldn’t it be great to actually find out what’s causing the problem to begin with, and then fix that?
Symptoms are the result of having an underlying problem. By masking the symptoms with pills, this allows the problem to continue and get worse in the long run. Let’s not ignore that pills have side effects too, damaging other parts of our bodies.
Chiropractic is a highly specialized form of treatment. If you need an expert chiropractor in Raleigh, NC, give us a call today!
Chiropractic Treatments In Raleigh, NC
The chiropractic or spinal manipulation (adjustment) by our Raleigh chiropractor has proved to be a non-medicated and non-surgical alternative for treating injuries, and damages to tissues, ligaments, bones and tendons. This method triggers a self healing process within the body by re-aligning the spine.
Chiropractic adjustments are often used where patients seek to improve their range of motion otherwise restricted by severe discomfort that may be caused by the subluxation (an altered or stressed positioning of the vertebra).
Our concern is your comfort. Not everyone prefers the same technique or approach. We understand this and welcome feedback and can offer a variety of alternative methods such as the following.
- Activator(low force)
- Cox Flexion-Distraction
- Trigger point therapy
- Thompson Drop Table
Electric Muscle Stimulation
This technique uses low intensity electrical pulses to stimulate the muscles of the affected area. It makes the muscles contract, warms them up, and improves the circulation of blood to them. Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is ideal for patients with:
- Chronic back problems
- Constant headaches
- Muscle stiffness
- Numbness in limbs
- Nervous system disorders
Using high-frequency sound waves, the ultrasound technique allows the stimulation of local body tissues. These tissues, when stimulated, heat up and cause the local blood flow to improve and the muscles to relax, relieving pain. Our ultrasound treatments are good for people suffering from:
- Shoulder pain
Some of the more sensitive cases that can handle your typical chiropractor treatments require special care and attention. Massage therapy is an effective remedy for improving the immune function, increasing the circulation of blood and, at the same time, dealing with the pain from accidents, repetitive strain, injuries, and/or surgeries. Our chiropractor in Raleigh, NC offers the following.
- Pregnancy massage
- Deep tissue massage
- Medical massage
- TMJ (Internal Jaw) massage
- Craniosacral massage
- Therapeutic massage
Lastly, and perhaps most important to you, this type of therapy can often help us with our psychological well being by reducing stress, which in turn will reduce or eliminate the production of stress hormones and chemicals that can be harmful to your body. It can help slow a busy, overworked mind and center a person. Give our Raleigh chiropractor today.
You may have had an accident, but you ‘feel fine’. Each jolt and trauma – major and minor – is recorded in the spinal joints. Days, months, or even years later it can produce a symptom. It’s very important to receive chiropractic treatment immediately. Call our office at 919-872-1050 to set up an appointment.
Stress is one of the most common causes of disease. Stress is an attack on your body of mental or physical means. For instance – job, work, marriage, or finance related stress, junk food, alcohol, prescription medications, sugar and caffeine overuse all take a toll on your body. They show up as mild symptoms, which get ignored until it’s too late.
Work & Routine
Your job could also be taxing your spine. Sitting at a bad workstation for years, constantly reaching for the mouse can result in carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain and headaches. Bad lifting techniques create low and mid back pain. Continual driving creates neck and low back pain.
Children can have spinal problems too, just look at all the falls they take, not to mention those backpacks weighing more that the actual child. Children are now more frequently seen for more problems developed by wearing weighty backpacks than ever before. Really look at your child’s posture. Do they have trouble sitting up straight? Is one shoulder higher than the other? There is no such thing as growing pains, otherwise everyone would have them. We all grow!
