3 Common Conditions Pittsburgh Chiropractors Help
Pittsburgh chiropractors are capable of treating all types of injuries and more importantly, they recognize and respect the unique situation that each case presents. Chiropractors recognize that car accident injuries may result in symptoms suffered weeks (or even months) after your accident, and that work injuries demand a thorough examination of work station setup or ergonomically appropriate equipment. For any injury sustained, the holistic core of chiropractors lies in treating the whole person.
Here are 3 common conditions chiropractors can help with:
More than 80% of men and women will suffer from lower back pain. Chiropractors are highly skilled and successful in the treatment and management of all back conditions. Many differing tissues can generate lower back pain, but research has shown that the exact tissues causing back pain cannot be specifically identified in up to 80% of individuals and many family doctors lack sufficient adequate training in back pain.
The cost of lower back pain through medical care and lost productivity is astronomical. It is the number one cause for disability and workers' compensation claims ($50 billion) annually in North America. Chiropractors can potentially resolve a lot of this back pain with proper rehabilitation and a multi-faceted plan.
Neck pain is also a severe affliction for many people in Pittsburgh. The neck is a delicate structure containing myriad pain sensitive areas that are easily damaged. It’s hard to maintain proper posture in today’s workplace; prolonged sitting and a lack of monitored and controlled stretching can lead to severe neck issues. A qualified Chiropractor can assess and treat neck problems you may have and help get you back on track.
In regards to sports injuries chiropractic care is second to none. If you’ve ever had a sports injury you know the majority are soft tissue related accidents or body mechanics related. Chiropractors are the go to doctors if you are a weekend warrior quarterback or a professional athlete.
Chiropractors believe that it’s not only about pain relief, it’s about the underlying causes which may include:
- Muscular imbalances
- Biomechanical deficiencies
- Improper techniques
- Improper conditioning
