What conditions benefit from chiropractic care? Although chiropractic is used most frequently to relieve low back pain, studies have found it to be effective for a variety of conditions, such as migraine headaches, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and infantile colic. CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP MY "Slipped Disc" "Slipped disc" or actually "bulging disc" has become a common saying, as if we were talking about a stack of slippery poker chips. Discs are actually the fluid-filled cushions that act as shock absorbers between the dense bones of the spine. These discs allow the spine to support normal body movement and keep the vertebrae from grinding against each other causing back pain. As long as the spine is lined up properly, the discs can do their job. When the spine experiences a continuing misalignment due to stress, accident or slight dislocation a disc may bulge out between the edges of the spinal bones and eventually lose its cushioning fluid and the ability to regain more fluid. This results in vertebrae grinding against each other. Sound painful? In many cases this condition leads to severe pain. In the past, many patients looked to surgery for a reduction of this severe pain. New government healthcare guidelines do not readily endorse surgery because of the variety of complications that can occur as a result of the surgery itself. Surgery also does not attempt to correct the cause of the symptoms. Chiropractic care is a more conservative treatment approach. Your chiropractor can be very effective at correcting the spinal misalignments that created the bulging disc in the first place. Your chiropractor will work to gently realign the spinal bones. This realignment will allow the disc to regain the lost fluid that has reduced the shock absorbing function of the disc which will in turn reduce or eliminate the discomfort. © Tri-County Chiropractic 2011.
