When a herniated disc is out of alignment with the spine, the disc may put pressure on nearby nerves. This can lead to intense back pain. If the herniated disc occurs in the lower back, the disc may put pressure on the sciatic nerve. This causes radiating pain and numbness in the legs, buttocks, and lower back, which is a condition known as sciatica. While painkillers can temporarily relieve sciatica, medication cannot correct spinal alignment and return a herniated disc to its proper position in the spine.
At Ivey-O'Sullivan Health Care Services, our chiropractors can use a safe, non-invasive treatment known as spinal decompression. Decompression creates a vacuum in the back that helps return a herniated disc to its proper placement. By restoring alignment, the disc no longer puts pressure on nearby nerves, relieving pain, and preventing future problems.
Thanks to long hours hunched over computer screens, carpal tunnel syndrome is quickly becoming a leading personal injury affecting Spartanburg adults. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve. Before entering the hand, this nerve passes through a narrow channel in the wrist. Repetitive motions, like typing, can lead to swelling, which causes the wrist channel to narrow and put pressure on the median nerve, causing pain. Gentle chiropractic adjustment and manipulation of the wrist is an effective treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome - and much safer than invasive wrist surgery. Stretching and strengthening exercises can also help.
In addition to chiropractic care, complementary therapies, including physical therapy and trigger point therapy, can speed the healing process. Following a personal injury, our muscles and joints become stiff, weak, and tight. We may also adjust our natural body movements to compensate for injury pain, which causes further musculoskeletal alignment problems.
Physical therapy exercises can help restore a full range of movement and motion to our bodies. Additionally, trigger point therapy is a specialized treatment that can relieve the tiny contractions in our muscles and tissues, which are directly responsible for pain. Our chiropractors have used trigger point therapy successfully on hundreds of patients as a natural complement to chiropractic treatments.
Personal injuries can have a serious impact on your life. Don't let back pain, headaches, or neck pain slow you down. Spinal decompression, trigger point therapy, and care from a chiropractor are safe, non-invasive treatments that naturally relieve personal injury pain.
