It is well known that chiropractic is commonly used to treat neck and back pain. Yet, what is less known is that chiropractic can be used to treat a large number of ailments including headaches, shoulder, elbow and wrist conditions, hip and knee pain, ankle and foot injuries. At Chalmers Wellness we treat patients with a wide range of pain.
When addressing many ailments in the body, whether it is a joint or an illness, the chiropractic outlook is often different than other forms of care. This means that if you have had an issue for a while you might get a different treatment that could give you more relief. Quite often the area of pain is not the only part of your body that needs help. For instance your elbow very often will hurt and need the wrist, elbow, radial head, and bicep muscle treated to completely fix the elbow. In this way chiropractic can address moving a joint, then teach the exercises to strengthen the joint, and show ways to reduce strain on posture. This will significantly reduce problems in the future.
Many of the current pain management techniques used today only treat the symptoms of a problem and not the cause. Chalmers Wellness aims to find the source of the issue and treat it effectively. This is in contrast to traditional medicines but offers reliable results. As a result, chiropractic is highly effective in preventing future issues from presenting themselves.
Chiropractic is non-invasive (i.e. no drugs and no surgery), therefore there are much fewer risks taken with the procedures that are performed. Using your body’s own natural healing, Chiropractic helps manage pain and other problems. More often than not patients who see chiropractors not only report a decrease in pain but also an improvement in their general wellness.
