5 Signs You Should See a Chiropractor
Updated: Jun 6, 2019
If you have never visited a chiropractor before, you might wonder why you should. The Source Specific provides five signs that you should see a chiropractor.
Headaches are caused by various reasons, one of the most common being a misalignment in the neck or spine.
An upper cervical chiropractor can help to relieve symptoms of headaches and improve blood flow which will increase the amount of oxygen that is supplied to the brain, and will ultimately reduce and prevent the possibility of headaches in the future.
2. Joint & Muscle Pain
Your pain could be due to a shift in musculoskeletal alignment.
A chiropractor is trained to make sure the body is functioning as optimally as possible by using spinal manipulations to relieve pain.
These spinal adjustments will increase blood flow and nerve conductivity to the joints and muscles that are experiencing pain.
3. Sitting for Long Periods of Time
If your job requires you to sit for long periods of time, especially an office or computer job, this could result in poor posture. Poor posture causes pressure on the upper back, neck, and shoulders. This pressure can cause a shift in alignment and create upper cervical pain.
An upper cervical chiropractor will relieve this pressure and make sure your spine is aligned correctly, so you do not run into any future upper cervical problems.
4. Chronic Back Pain
One of the most obvious signs that you are in need of a chiropractic visit is if you are experiencing chronic back pain. At the Source Specific, Dr. Nathan can provide you with pain relief through chiropractic manipulations and upper cervical techniques, without the need for invasive surgery or medications.
5. Limited Range of Motion
If you notice a change in your flexibility or feel as if movements of the neck, arms and legs are restricted, then your range of motion has become limited. This is another good indication that you need to see your chiropractor.
Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments realign the bones and joints, relieving pain and increasing the bodies range of motion. Having normal range of motion will help the body to function optimally.
