Our Chiropractic office in Carrollton is available for corrective treatment.
Spinal problems can make life miserable in more ways than one. Worse than just a pain in the neck, an unhealthy spine can greatly diminish your quality of life. Fortunately, corrective treatment helps restore function at Hands on Health Wellness Center.
What Is Corrective Treatment?
Corrective Treatment is the segment of chiropractic medicine that addresses abnormalities in the spine. Because your spine is vital to how your body functions and operates, a healthy spine is imperative. Low back pain, neck pain and headache are common reasons why people seek chiropractic adjustment. At Hands on Health, we are experts at treating these ailments. Chiropractic adjustments are proven to increase spinal motion, release tension, decrease inflammation and improve physical function. However there is much more to chiropractic adjustment as it relates to the body’s overall wellness. Your nervous system is the communication center of your body, sending messages from your brain to every cell, organ, gland, muscle and system.Through gentle manipulation, exercises, massage, and more, Dr. Scott can adjust and repair issues that negatively impact your spinal health.
What Are the Symptoms of Spinal Problems?
Your nervous system must be working well in order for your body to work well. Keeping the vertebrae centered, level, and with the correct spinal curvature creates an optimal environment for a vital nervous system. When the nervous system is at its best, the body is able to function highly, eliminating disease and toxicity. Your spine is a column of disc-like bones called vertebrae that begin at the base of your skull and end at your pelvis. This column of bone supports the structure of your upper body. When something goes wrong within your spinal column, you may experience a range of painful symptoms, including:
- Chronic Headaches
- Pain in the knees, neck, and hips
- Unusual fatigue
- Tingling in the feet and hands
Corrective treatment, when performed by Dr. Scott, can alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by spinal problems.
What Causes Issues With the Spine?
Many factors may contribute to spinal problems, including:
- Medical conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis
- Normal aging
- Vitamin deficiency
When problems occur, you may experience degeneration of the spine. Degeneration happens in three phases that start out mild and progress to severe. Left untreated, spinal degeneration may result in serious declines in quality of life. The stages of degeneration are best described in this way:
In phase one, a misalignment or malfunction occurs. Surprisingly, this phase may have no symptoms at all. You may not realize you have a problem at this point.
Phase two involves the narrowing of your spinal column. Discs and vertebrae become compressed. At this point, you may begin to suffer aches, pains, and fatigue. During this phase, your posture may change and you may develop painful bone spurs.
Phase three causes major life changes. As bone becomes deformed, you may experience mobility issues, immobilization of joints, and nerve atrophy. It may be difficult to stand, walk, or lift.
