Your chiropractor in Overland Park can treat a number of pain conditions and health issues with gentle chiropractic adjustments and other chiropractic modalities.
Here are some of the most common conditions we treat at Adjust Your Health Chiropractic & Acupuncture:
Allergies: Seasonal and year-round allergies often cause sinus pressure, itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, and coughing, all of which can affect a person’s daily living. Chiropractic care relieves stress on the nervous system, improving the immune system, allowing it to function properly and fight off allergy-causing chemicals in the air.
Neck Pain and Stiffness: Neck pain affects millions everyday and is attributed to a number of causes, including injury, poor posture, aging, and degenerative disc disease. Chiropractic adjustments in the cervical spine relieves pressure, improves mobility, and restores range of motion.
Back Pain: Back pain is also caused by a number issues, yet chiropractic care can release stress from the spine to decrease pain, increase mobility, and improve function.
Sciatica and Leg Pain: Sciatica causes mild to excruciating pain as a result of inflammation and pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve which starts in the lower back and runs down through the hip, into the glutes, and down the back of the leg. Chiropractic treatments can relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve to reduce pain, decrease numbness and tingling, and improve function.
Scoliosis: Scoliosis is a condition that begins in children between the ages of 10 and 12 and develops with age. Scoliosis may manifest in varying degrees of severity. Because chiropractic care provides pain relief for back pain, this is an effective treatment for managing pain associated with scoliosis.
Migraines and Other Headaches: Whether migraines are hereditary or the result of an injury, those who suffer from migraines and other headaches will find relief from chiropractic treatments. Neck adjustments of the bones and joints in combination with muscle work and stress management can significantly relieve the symptoms associated with migraines. Gentle chiropractic and massage therapy release pressure and tension in the neck joints and muscles which often contribute to headaches and migraines that begin at the base of the skull.
Fibromyalgia: Chiropractic is an effective treatment for managing the pain associated with this condition that typically manifests after a physical or emotional trauma and may worsen with age.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome presents as a result of overuse and/or repetitive use of the hand and wrist, and from awkward postures. Through manual adjustments and muscle work in the wrists, chiropractic care effectively treats this condition, providing lasting, drug-free relief.
