While everyone who visits a chiropractor has a personal reason for doing so, treatments will always involve the musculoskeletal system. Some people choose to visit a chiropractor, like Dr. Lynelle McSweeney here in Reno, for relief from tension headaches, hip pain, shoulder pain, limited range of motion, and many other conditions that extend far beyond a sore back. Here, we’re covering some of the conditions your Reno chiropractor can treat.
WHAT DOES A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT MANAGE?
The list of ways a chiropractor can offer assistance is lengthy. Dr. McSweeney and Dr. Allen see patients for conditions like:
- joint pain
- lower back pain
- neck pain
- stiff muscles
- healing after an injury
Treatments are designed to ensure joints are moving properly, and that the surrounding muscles are also functioning optimally. But here at Dr. McSweeney’s practice, personalized care means more than adjustments. Dr. McSweeney and Dr. Allen combine massage therapy, stretches, nutrition recommendations, laser treatments, and other forms of treatment to ensure that the root of your condition is being managed—not just the symptoms. In the process, this holistic approach to chiropractic care helps relieve aches and pains, muscles stiffness, and chronic conditions.
Other benefits of this kind of multifaceted chiropractic care include restoring range of motion, improving posture, and alleviating and minimizing headaches. Remember, the goal of chiropractic is whole health over the long term, instead of simple symptom relief in the short term. That means Dr. McSweeney and Dr. Allen may offer recommendations you can apply at home or at work, such as addressing how you sit and stand, exercises and stretches you should prioritize, icing and heat therapy, nutrition recommendations, stress management tips, and methods of relaxing the muscles.
