For many people, the term “chiropractic care” is associated with the relief of back pain. While back pain is surely one of the most common ailments that chiropractors treat, chiropractic care can treat much more than that and some urgent care facilities provide this type of care. As such, here are a few more ailments a Paine Field, Everett walk-in clinic chiropractor can treat:
According to a report from Chiropractic Economics Magazine, chiropractic care is providing many people with relief from all types of ailments.
The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) has endorsed the conclusion of a recent report, titled “Adding chiropractic manipulative therapy to standard medical care for patients with acute low back pain: results of a pragmatic randomized comparative effectiveness study”.
The study found that for patients with low-back pain, the addition of chiropractic care to standard medical care (SMC) offered greater than a four-fold increase in patients whose pain and disability was “completely gone, much better or moderately better.”
“The inclusion of chiropractic care in this study setting demonstrated that chiropractic can promote cost-effective and clinically efficient outcomes for musculoskeletal conditions,” said Gerard Clum, DC, spokesperson, F4CP, who points out that the evidence-based care also ranks highly in terms of patient satisfaction.
Below is a list of ailments that can be relieved through chiropractic care:
If you feel an intense pain traveling down either one or both of your legs, you may be suffering from sciatica. The pain is the result of soft tissues in your legs becoming inflamed, which irritates your sciatic nerves in your leg. Chiropractic care can ease the inflammation of the soft tissue in the legs through spinal manipulation.
For those that do repetitive motions with their hands and fingers every day, developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an ever-present risk. The condition is caused by an irritation of the median nerve in your wrists and people who suffer from it may experience weakness or pain in their hand or fingers.
Chiropractic care can be a great way to relieve pain caused by injuries sustained from automobile accidents to sports-related injuries. In addition, chiropractic adjustment after a physical therapy session is a great way to relieve the stress a recovering body part accumulates.
These are only a few of the ailments that chiropractic care from a reputable Paine Field, Everett urgent care center, such as U.S. HealthWorks, can manage. If you are unsure if chiropractic care can help you with your aches and pains, don’t hesitate to call and ask.
