Chiropractic conditions covers a multiplicity of options to your health problems.
At this page we will attempt to cover a great many of the common pain syndromes that may afflict a joint, ligament, capsule, and the nerves and muscles in the body.
Well almost; it remains controversial just how much chiropractic can help conditions such as multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy. There were many, many syndromes which formerly we thought our profession could play no roll. Science has proved otherwise.
Like spinal stenosis for example.
Now we understand that the conditions chiropractic can successfully treat is far broader than we first realised. Ever thought of taking your tiny baby to your local DC? Is that quite mad? Science proves that infantile colic responds well to our care.
At Chiropractic Conditions we try to give you oodles of information so that you can make more right choices.
Whilst labeling patients is very useful in terms of deciding on treatment protocols, it is also fraught with errors. If your gut feel is that your chiropractor has made the wrong diagnosis, it's very important to discuss it with him or her; if only for your peace of mind.
Tingling in arms and hands is one of the most common chiropractic conditions examined and treated at the coalface.
Arm pain is certainly one of the most frequent complaints at the Chiropractic Coalface. There are many causes, from trauma, perhaps a long forgotten fall that injured the AcromioClavicular Joint on the tip of the shoulder.
Or perhaps a spurt of spring cleaning.
But most commonly is an old injury to the neck. Or first rib. By irritating the nerve roots that supply the arm, the muscles become weaker and vulnerable to injury, such as a rotator cuff syndrome.
Tingling in the arms and hands is a frequent result. Waking up in the early hours with tingling and pain in your hands?
The Upper Limb Tension Test is a simple procedure that you can perform at home to test for a pinched or irritated nerve in the neck.
There are numerous sites in the arm where the nerve can be irritated...
Lower back and leg pain is probably one of the most common chiropractic conditions treated at the coalface.
Chiropractic conditions is a navigation page to the complaints commonly treated; it is obviously not all inclusive.
Find a good chiropractor is no different to locating a medical doctor, or architect for that matter, with whom you click; and also whether he is skillful in regard to your particular chiropractic condition.
It never does any harm to go for a consultation with no treatment; let him or her examine you, take a history, and then you go away and thinking about whether they have been thorough and are knowledgeable about your problem. Not every DC may be skilled in the management of sports injuries, or infantile colic, or vertigo for example.
When is changing chiropractors a good idea?
Infertility, shingles, facial pain, infantile colic, trigeminal neuralgia ... COMMON MEDICAL CONDITIONS ...
It goes without saying that having a full grasp of a wide range of conditions such as that listed above, demands a relatively long and arduous chiropractic education.
