Can chiropractic help with my back and neck pain?

According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), “80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office.” At The Joints in Tempe, AZ, we believe back and neck pain is very treatable without having to use drugs or surgery through chiropractic care. There are tons of new studies and research that show chiropractic gives wonderful results for back and neck pain. There are some major cases where surgery is necessary, but for the majority of people, people whose pain is caused by stress, inactivity, lifting heavy objects, desk jobs, etc, chiropractic is the alternative route to go.

Here are some tips by the ACA on how to prevent back pain:

  • Don’t lift by bending over. Instead, bend your hips and knees and then squat to pick up the object. Keep your back straight, and hold the object close to your body.
  • Don’t twist your body while lifting.
  • Push, rather than pull, when you must move heavy objects.
  • If you must sit for long periods, take frequent breaks and stretch.
  • Wear flat shoes or shoes with low heels.
  • Exercise regularly. An inactive lifestyle contributes to lower-back pain.

Many people describe chiropractors as “back doctors.” While that’s partly true because chiropractors do help people with lower, mid and upper back issues, chiropractors are actually experts on the entire nervous and musculoskeletal system.

If you’re looking for a back doctor in Tempe, please consider visiting a The Joint location nearest you. Our Doctors of Chiropractic are skilled and friendly and can help explain the pain or issues you’re experiencing. Don’t let fear of knowing what’s going on hinder you from living the quality of life you deserve. And, don’t let the cost of care be the reason either.

Chiropractic For Kids in Tempe, AZ

The chiropractors at The Joint in Tempe know that you may have some questions and concerns about having your children adjusted. As parents, it’s in our nature to want to protect our children and keep them as healthy as possible. Did you know that chiropractic adjustments are safe and effective for even the youngest of children? Receiving regular adjustments may help improve a child’s sleep cycles, decrease the symptoms of colic, and even help with bed wetting which can all be results of subluxations that can occur during childbirth, along with an array of many other ailments. Here are the top questions parents have for us regarding chiropractic care for kids.

Why should my child receive chiropractic care?

Children play hard. Their spine takes as much if not more abuse then an adult on any given day. Because of this, children can benefit from a regular adjustment just like adults. In fact, many studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments can be helpful in the treatment of colic, ear infections, allergies, ADD/ADHD, bed-wetting and more.

I’m afraid the chiropractor will hurt my child since they are used to adjusting adults and my child is so little.

Chiropractic adjustments for children are very gentle. The techniques used for adjusting children versus adults are quite different. Many chiropractors have adjusted children as young as a few days old.

I’m afraid of my child’s neck getting adjusted.

Again, the techniques used for adjusting children are different than that of adults. Children’s spines are also less rigid when they are young so the force needed to make the correction is much less.

My child’s bones are still growing, will chiropractic care affect their development?

Yes, but not in a negative way. Chiropractic care can keep children’s spines in proper alignment and allow their nervous system to function at its best. This can prevent your children from having their growth plates close up prematurely and can also prevent unnecessary spinal degeneration later in their lives.

If there is nothing physically wrong with my child, what is the point of having them adjusted?

Just because your child isn’t complaining, doesn’t mean their spine is properly aligned. Every time they jump off a couch, wrestle on the ground or fall on the playground, they can subluxate a bone. Keeping their spine properly aligned is the best way to ensure proper growth and prevent damage in the future.

Will my child become dependent on chiropractic care?

At The Joint…the chiropractic place, we encourage all our patients, young and old to receive regular chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments help realign children’s and adults spines ensuring proper function of the nervous system. It’s one of the best things anyone can do to live a happy, healthy life.

Headache Relief in Tempe, AZ

The Joint strives to offer affordable, safe and effective headache relief in Tempe, AZ.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, nine out of ten Americans experience regular headaches. Although headaches can range in severity from a dull throbbing to a debilitating migraine, there is natural and safe relief available. Chiropractic care may alleviate the painful symptoms of a headache and work to prevent future occurrences. Instead of turning to potentially harmful medications, chiropractic offers a natural solution to the unpleasant pain of headaches.

Researchers at Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center stated, “spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer lasting relief of a tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.” By receiving regular adjustments, you can not only address the pain but also work to prevent future headaches.

What a Chiropractor May do to Relieve Headaches

-Perform regular adjustments to the neck, which will improve spinal function and relieve tension
-Provide wellness and nutritional advice in order to avoid headache triggers and promote a healthy, headache free lifestyle
-Offer advice on proper ergonomics, posture, exercises, and relaxation techniques to help ensure proper nerve flow and avoid joint irritation that can lead to future headaches.

Migraine Relief in Tempe, AZ

For some migraine sufferers, chiropractic adjustments seem to help. In certain cases, the occipital muscles (muscles at the base of the skull at the back of the head) tighten and spasm, resulting in neck stiffness and possible triggering of migraines. This is especially true for tension and cluster migraine sufferers where adjusting the occiput may relieve the tension.

What is a Migraine?

A migraine is a severe type of recurring headache that can include symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, throbbing, and a sensitivity to light. Migraines can be debilitating and bring with them intense and frequent pain in one or both sides of the head.

Who is at Risk For Migraines?

Although all are at risk for migraines, they most often occur between the ages of 10 and 45. More women than men experience migraines, and they often times run in families. Although the exact pattern of events that lead to a migraine are undefined, most medical experts believe that they originate from abnormal brain activity, triggered by several factors.

Migraine Triggers

  • Changes in hormone levels
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Changes in caffeine consumption
  • Physical stress
  • Exposure to smoke
  • Specific food allergies

Migraine Symptoms

  • Eye pain
  • Headache pain localized to one side of the head
  • Tunnel vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Vision disturbances

Migraine Relief in Tempe, AZ

Although aspirin or other medications can sometimes work at treating a migraine, they can often increase symptoms if taken for multiple days in a row. Chiropractic is a safe and natural way that may not only alleviate migraine pain but also prevent them from recurring.

Sciatica Relief in Tempe, AZ

If you are suffering from sciatic pain, you may be asking yourself, can a chiropractor help bring me sciatica relief? It is important to understand that sciatica is a nerve issue. All of the nerves in the human body originate from the spinal column. The sciatic nerve is no different. So even though you may be suffering with leg, hip or even calf pain — chances are good that the nerve is actually compressed somewhere in the spinal column. Chiropractic can be great at relieving pressure on the spinal nerves including the sciatica nerve.

What is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is made up of the nerve roots that originate in the spinal cord and into the low back. It runs through the buttock and branches out to extend into the leg down to the foot. Sciatica is the pain, tingling, numbness caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is caused by nerve pain that originates in the back and can radiate down into the lower extremities. Sciatica can be dull and throbbing or can be severely debilitating. It also ranges in frequency to occasional symptoms to constant pain or numbness and tingling.

What Can Aggravate Sciatica Symptoms?

-Standing or sitting for prolonged periods of time
-Movements that cause the spine to flex
-Walking or running
-Lying down for long periods of time
-Movements that cause the spine to extend

For sciatica relief, visit The Joint in Tempe, AZ, and the skilled and professional chiropractors will help to restore your function and reduce your symptoms.

Shoulder Pain Relief in Tempe AZ

Can a chiropractor help with my shoulder pain?

Before seeking treatment for shoulder pain, it’s important a chiropractor understands why there is pain to being with. For example, treating shoulder arthritis is going to be different than treating a rotator cuff injury. A chiropractor will not only give a patient a range of motion test but will also dig deep into their daily habits, exercise and diet to understand the entire picture.

Chiropractors are specialist when it comes to the nervous system, muskuloskeletal system and joints. A chiropractor, once an examination has been performed, should make his or her recommendation on whether or not chiropractic care can help with a patient’s specific shoulder pain.

Types of shoulder pain*:

Bursitis: The most common diagnosis in patients with shoulder pain is bursitis or tendonitis of the rotator cuff. Bursitis is an inflammation of a fluid-filled sac, or bursa, that lies between tendon and skin or between tendon and bone. Normally a bursa protects the joint and helps make movement more fluid.

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis: Tendonitis is when tendons become compressed under the rigid bony arch of the shoulder. The compressed tendons become inflamed or damaged and cause pain. This can occur from general wear and tear, as you get older, an activity that requires constant shoulder use like baseball pitching, or an injury.

Arthritis: Shoulder arthritis is less common than knee and hip arthritis, but when severe may require a joint replacement surgery. Arthritis is a gradual narrowing of the joints and loss of protective cartilage in the joints about the shoulder.

Rotator Cuff Tear: A Rotator cuff tear occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff separate from the bone. Surgery is sometimes necessary for this condition.

Frozen Shoulder: Also called ‘adhesive capsuliitis,’ this is a common condition that leads to stiffness of the joint. Physical therapy and stretching are extremely important aspects for treatment.

Calcific Tendonitis: Calcific tendonitis is a condition of calcium deposits within a tendon — most commonly within the rotator cuff tendons. Treatment of calcific tendonitis depends on the extent of symptoms.

Labral Tear: A Bankart lesion is a type of labral tear most commonly due to dislocation of the joint. Bankart lesions cause problems of persistent instability.

Shoulder Instability: Instability is a problem that causes a loose joint. Instability can be caused by a traumatic injury (dislocation), or may be a developed condition.

Shoulder Dislocation: A dislocation is an injury that occurs when the top of the arm bone becomes disconnected from the scapula.

Shoulder Separation: Also called an AC separation, these injuries are the result of a disruption of the acromioclavicular joint. This is a very different injury from a dislocation!

SLAP Lesion: The SLAP lesion is also a type of labral tear. The most common cause is a fall onto an outstretched hand.

Biceps Tendon Rupture : A proximal biceps tendon rupture occurs when the tendon of the biceps muscle ruptures near the joint.

Where can I go to have my shoulder pain treated?

If you would like a Doctor of Chiropractic to examine your shoulder pain today, please use the special first visit offer found here for The Joints in Tempe, AZ. The Joint locations throughout the United States are open either 6 or 7 days a week and have evening hours during the weekday.
