Chiropractic/Spine Q & A

What conditions does a chiropractor treat?

The Superior Performance Center team has expert chiropractors that treat painful conditions like whiplash, back problems, musculoskeletal injuries, and headaches.

Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs due to a rapid motion of the head back and forth. It typically occurs after a rear-end collision but can also happen in contact sports, physical assault, or a traumatic fall.

The symptoms of whiplash are quick to appear and develop within 24 hours of the trauma. The symptoms include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Limitation of neck movements
  • Headache and dizziness
  • Numbness in your arms

The Superior Performance Center team can promptly diagnose whiplash by conducting a clinical evaluation and in-house X-rays. After diagnosis, they get you started on an individualized treatment plan so that you can make a successful recovery.

Back Problems

Patients frequently seek treatment from the chiropractor for back problems. The causes of back problems vary and consist of bad posture, localized pain, chronic musculoskeletal issues, or fibromyalgia.

Your chiropractor at Superior Performance Center typically begins by going over your medical history and then forming a treatment plan that suits your needs. By developing a treatment plan specific to you, it increases your chances of a fast recovery.

Headache

Many people frequently visit the chiropractor to get relief from headaches. Tight neck and back muscles and poor posture typically cause headaches. Skilled chiropractors can apply pressure at the right points to reduce pain from headaches.

Muscoskeletal (MSK) injuries

Your chiropractor adjusts your overall alignment to treat numerous MSK injuries like dislocation or osteoarthritis. Sometimes the treatment is effective alone, or it can compliment orthopedic treatment, surgery, or other therapies.

What is spinal manipulation?

This is one of the most common chiropractic treatments. Spinal manipulation involves applying controlled pressure with both hands over the spine until a popping sound is heard. The treatment restores mobility, improves posture, and relieves pain.

Is chiropractic treatment safe?

Chiropractic therapies have little risk associated with them. Sometimes patients may experience mild soreness after chiropractic therapies, but it’s minimal and fades.
