You may head straight to the chiropractor to help you with pain in your back, neck, hips or pelvis, but that’s not all the chiropractor can do. As more people begin seeking treatment options that address the problem itself instead of simply medicating the symptoms, here are eight reasons to see the chiropractor.
- Restless sleep habits
Chiropractic care can improve the quality of your sleep by increasing the body’s production of melatonin.
- Nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting)
Removing spinal subluxations to address what’s called the phrenic reflex can often induce instant results in children who are wetting the bed. Speak to Dr. McSweeney here in Reno for recommendations and treatment suggestions.
- Sports injuries
If your performance is suffering from overuse or aches and pains resulting from your sport of choice, Dr. McSweeney can recommend treatment that may help.
While asthma cannot be cured, it can be improved. A clinical study with asthma patients showed improvement in their symptoms after chiropractic care.
Most headaches are the result of stress on the body. Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on the body, which means fewer headaches.
Soft-tissue techniques can offer relief from the pain and inflammation associated with osteoporosis.
- Autoimmune disorders
Consistent chiropractic care can have a surprising impact on disorders like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and even muscular sclerosis.
- Tennis elbow
Chiropractors work on all of the body’s joints, making them a natural choice for this painful condition.
Many conditions lack a one-size-fits-all treatment approach. If you’re struggling with chronic aches and pains, fatigue, headaches, or any of the symptoms listed above, a chiropractor may be able to help. Here’s what to expect at your first chiropractic visit with Dr. McSweeney.
