Back Pain

Back Pain

Back pain affects 80% of Americans at some time in their lives. Back pain can also come in many forms. Whether you are affected by upper back pain, lower back pain or middle back pain, it can be anywhere from annoying to debilitating and should be take serious.

Pain is a signal that something is not right in your body.

Some people choose to mask or cover up the symptoms with medications or pills.  That’s like covering your eyes so you don’t see something you dislike.  But it doesn’t make the problem go away.

Two Common Causes

The facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone is a very nerve sensitive are and are a common cause of back pain. When the facet joints don’t move correctly they can cause back pain.

Your spinal discs can also be part of the problem causing your back pain.  This can range from degeneration, herniation, bulging and rupture of the spinal disc.  This can in turn cause irritation and inflammation to the nerves that cause you back pain.

Your Choices

We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, other choices include:
Ignore it (Spinal problems may worsen.)
Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)
Therapy (Stresses malfunctioning joints.)
Medicine (Numbs the body.)
Surgery (The most serious last resort.)

The Chiropractic Approach

Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease and better stability can return.

Headaches

Headache Doctor Atlanta

A headache is pain anywhere in the head or neck region.  Headaches may seem normal, but they are far from it.  This pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong.

One of the most common causes of headaches is irritation of the nerves in the neck.  This may sound odd at first, but these delicate nerves run throughout the head and neck.  When you have an underlying issue in your neck, it can cause headaches.

While the TV ads will show you how the newest headache miracle pill will eliminate your headache, the pill will do nothing more than numb your body into believing the pain is gone.

The primary objective in our office is to find the cause of your headache and eliminate it with a more natural approach.  Not only do we want to eliminate the problem, we want to help you keep it from returning.

The next step is to call our office for a consultation and thorough examination to identify the cause of your headaches. When we are able to locate the cause, it makes it easier to correct rather than just cover it up with medication.

Give us a call. Let’s sit down and discuss your unique situation.

Neck Pain

Atlanta Chiropractor For Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population having neck pain at some point in their lives.

Neck pain is most often caused by spinal problems.  This can often come in conjunction with muscle tightness, inflammation and nerve irritation.

The head (roughly the weight of a bowling ball) is supported by the lower neck and upper back, and it is these areas that commonly cause neck pain. The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of your neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for your head to sit on. If this support system is affected adversely, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain.

Minor and Major

Generally, we see two types of neck pain cases. Minor neck and shoulder pain involve sensations of discomfort, stiffness or soreness. If these symptoms last for more than a day or so, occur frequently or were preceded by an accident or some type of injury, we consider it major.

Response to Stress

We often feel like pain comes only from physical problems.  Emotional and chemical stress can often (and generally the most common causes) cause neck and shoulder pain.  This is where many people “carry their stress.”  It’s also a very overlooked evil-doer.

As always, pills and medications simply mask the pain and don’t treat the underlying cause!

We see this sort of thing all the time. It’s almost routine. Chiropractic care has a history of producing excellent results with those suffering from neck pain. And we do it naturally, without drugs or surgery.
