Chiropractic care treats mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularity the spine and joints. Chiropractic care is based on the idea that your body can heal itself with the help of hands-on adjustments and other treatment modalities. Many people believe they only need to see a chiropractor after an accident or an injury. Although chiropractic care can help after an accident, there are other benefits to receiving regular chiropractic care. Dr. La Ruffa at La Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab in Jupiter, FL can improve your quality of life through chiropractic care.
Treating Chronic Neck Pain
Chronic neck pain is a common issue if you have poor posture, bend your neck to hold the phone or sit for most of the day. Chronic neck pain can make it difficult and painful to move your head. Chiropractic care can help the pain by realigning your spine and reducing the tension in your muscles.
Treating Back Pain
Acute and chronic back pain can make certain movements and daily activities difficult. Back pain is often treated with injections, which are short-term treatments. Opioid medication is also used, which can be highly addictive. Back pain is also treated with invasive procedures like surgery. Chiropractic care provides pain relief without having to rely on medication or surgery to produce results.
Easing Headache Symptoms
Chronic headaches, such as tension headaches, can be very painful. Migraine headaches are very painful and can cause sensitivity to light and sound. Many people also suffer from nausea and vomiting when it comes to migraines. Spinal manipulation can be used to treat headaches and migraines. Studies have shown that six to eight sessions of upper thoracic spinal manipulation and cervical spine manipulation are very effective in treating headaches and migraines.
Preventing Opioid Dependence
Opioid medication is commonly prescribed for chronic pain. Unfortunately, these medications are also highly addictive. Approximately 21 to 29 percent of people that are prescribed opioids will misuse them. Chiropractic care reduces the need for opioid medication, and there is no possibility of opioid dependence. Dr. La Ruffa uses natural treatment methods to provide pain relief and support the body’s healing process.
