Chiropractors are known and recognized for treating back pain, neck pain and sciatica pain. Lots of other problems can be alleviated, treated, or improved with chiropractic. In this list, how many did you know? PT treatment is essential there.
Vertigo and dizziness
Certain types of dizziness and lightheadedness can be improved by the care and advice of a chiropractor. Dizziness is sometimes triggered by a discrepancy between the different spatial positioning signals sent to the brain by the ears, eyes and muscle receptors in particular. The chiropractic adjustment of the cervical vertebrae allows normalization of the nervous system, which has an impact on these different signals. In addition, the chiropractor is able to perform various maneuvers to dislodge the otoliths, small pebbles stuck in a portion of the inner ear which are the source of much dizziness. The chiropractor can also advise you on other exercises to perform and on healthy habits to adopt to relieve symptoms and avoid recurrences.
Jaw disorders and pain
The jaw is a joint, and chiropractors love the joints. Disorders of the temporomandibular joint or jaw can quickly become invasive and cause various other problems: teeth grinding (bruxism), jaw pain, crackling joints, inability to open or close the mouth properly, neck pain, headache, pain when chewing, toothache and even eye movement problems. The temporomandibular joint is relatively complex and the chiropractor is able to restore normal function through chiropractic adjustments, muscle therapy and other advice such as wearing a mouth guard or prescribing exercises.
There is one type of tinnitus, cervicogenic somatic tinnitus, for which your chiropractor can help. The hypothesis is that tinnitus is caused or aggravated by a stimulus of cervical origin. This type of tinnitus is often associated with neck pain, but can also be triggered by a neck or head trauma. The people who respond best to the suggested treatment joint manipulations, muscle therapy and exercises have tinnitus which is either:
- Aggravated by inadequate postures.
- Linked to neck pain.
- Whose sound is serious?
Carpal tunnel syndrome and other numbness
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a neurological, musculoskeletal and even systemic problem inflammatory process. The chiropractor has all the skills and knowledge to diagnose and treat carpal tunnel syndrome. His global approach makes him a leading choice for the treatment of this type of problem since he will carry out a physical and neurological examination of the upper limb, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, fingers certainly, but also an examination vertebral. The chiropractor could also help you when you suffer from numbness in the feet, arms, or legs. By consulting a chiropractor, you will quickly discover the cause of your numbness and the solutions available to you.
Headaches and migraines
Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective in relieving many types of headaches and migraines. In addition to the chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor often uses muscle therapy and exercise prescription to help relieve and treat headaches. He can also advise you on lifestyle habits to adopt or ban to promote optimal healing and avoid recurrences.
Balance problems and frequent falls
Balance is the optimal adaptation of the body to its environment. The brain receives various information, stimuli, from the eyes, ears and mechanical receptors of the muscles. Based on this information, an image of reality is constructed it is about perception. When these signals are scrambled, among other things by vertebral subluxation, the brain is no longer able to respond adequately to these stimuli and it may result in loss of balance or dizziness.
