The back is made up of the spine and an impressive array of connective soft tissues that help us balance and move. When out of alignment or otherwise injured, flexibility, range of motion, and many of our everyday movements are jeopardized and we don’t work efficiently.
Whether your back pain is due to a work injury, car accident, poor posture, or anything in between, chiropractic can safely alleviate your discomforts and help prevent re-injury.
The cervical spine is the portion of the spine in the neck and has a significant range of motion and flexibility. When in pain, the neck may stop supporting us fully, which can lead to headaches and stress and radiating pain into the shoulders and back.
From car accidents to whiplash to work injuries to handheld devices to streaming services to gaming consoles, the soft tissues and cervical spine take on many demands they didn’t once need to. Some are due to overuse, some to improper posture, some due to injury.
By getting a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, with chiropractic care, stretching, and exercising, along with guidance regarding posture and workstation setup, you can get and keep a strong, healthy neck that’s free from pain.
The spine is made up of vertebrae (bones) stacked on top of one another with a disc between each. The disc has a circular outer ring of tough fibrous tissue called an annulus that seals inside a soft, gel-like center called a nucleus. Disc herniation occurs when the disc’s center pushes through its hard casing and hits the surrounding nerve.
Disc herniation occurs when the outer annulus has a tear or defect, and the nucleus pushes through the tear deforming the shape of the disc. This disc can then press on other structures such as the spinal cord or spinal nerves.
Headaches and head injuries, such as concussions, can cause many challenges physically and mentally. Chronic headaches due to spinal imbalances are widespread and can lead to significant stress and discomfort.
Our St. Paul headache chiropractor will provide the support that effectively reduces the frequency and severity of numerous kinds of headaches. We’ll happily partner with other healthcare providers to ensure you get the best support possible for a quicker, more reliable healing process that lasts.
The sciatic nerve is the largest in the body, running from the lower back into each buttock and down each leg. It provides us with sensory and motor functions and is invaluable to some of our everyday movements. When impaired, you may feel pain and loss of range of motion anywhere along the sciatic nerve; this is called sciatica.
In many cases, sciatica is due to the misalignment of the spine or a herniated disc. Chiropractic is a responsible way to get your body properly functioning so you can move in comfort.
We can help heal the body using safe, natural, non-invasive techniques that restore the body for optimized recovery. After a traumatic event, avoiding aggressive treatment can help you find balance, comfort, and strength faster than relying on pain medication and surgery, which brings significant downtime.
