Jacobson Sports Chiropractic - Conditions Treated
The human body is – or should be – flexible and strong. Unfortunately, injuries, poor posture, and age can take a toll, leaving you with symptoms such as sciatica, back pain, and headaches. Or you might suffer from a condition like scoliosis or temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ). All of these conditions are likely to respond to chiropractic care. At Jacobson Sports Chiropractic in Lakeway, we offer solutions to these problems and more.
Your body is an engineering marvel, with complex joints supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments that allow you to walk, run or perform many daily tasks. However, inflammation or irritation of nerves and other structures can result in pain. As you change your gait or body mechanics to compensate for the pain, it puts stress on other areas. You might have a genetic problem like scoliosis or have inherited a tendency to migraine headaches. Technology, such as the use of cell phones or computers, can create postural problems or make them worse. You can also develop secondary symptoms that contribute to high blood pressure, a rapid pulse or digestive difficulties.
Conditions Treated by Chiropractic
Some of the common reasons why people seek chiropractic care – and for which Jacobson Sports Chiropractic can offer relief – include the following:
Sciatica – pain radiating down the leg, often in combination with low back pain and numbness or tingling.
Scoliosis – although not necessarily painful, scoliosis can affect the flexibility of the spine and cause gait changes.
Back pain – any area of the spine can become painful from injury or chronic poor posture.
Headaches and migraines – headaches can result from misalignment in the neck. Migraines are a neurological problem that may respond to spinal adjustment or to lifestyle changes recommended by your chiropractor.
TMJ – this jaw condition causes popping, cracking, chewing difficulties and headaches. The chiropractor can adjust the joint to resolve the problem.
Since all the nerves that control the body run off the spinal cord, a spinal misalignment may cause or contribute to other problems. For example, misalignment in the upper thoracic spine can cause elevated blood pressure or an irregular pulse. TMJ and upper cervical spinal misalignment can cause balance problems and dizziness. Spinal misalignment can even contribute to other conditions you wouldn’t expect, like allergies, sleep disturbances and digestive problems. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor might recommend lifestyle and dietary changes or suggest supplements to improve your overall nutrition.
