Are you wondering if visiting our chiropractor in Santa Clara can help you? Each year 35 million individuals are treated by chiropractors in the United States. Of your 35 million, 77 percent report chiropractic care as being effective in controlling pain and treating certain types of injuries, especially back pain and neck pain. For individuals who seek care from our chiropractor, many do so for the following five reasons.
1. To Alleviate Acute and Chronic Back Pain
The majority of individuals who walk through our chiropractor’s office doors do so because they are experiencing moderate to severe back pain. Back pain is often caused by herniated discs, spinal stenosis, sprains and strains, overuse, arthritis, and joint degeneration. These conditions can irritate nerves and irritate and inflame the soft tissues in the back, resulting in limited movement, the need to take over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription pain medications, and anti-inflammatories. Chiropractic care, including manual and instrument adjustments, and KST chiropractic can help alleviate pain or discomfort naturally.
2. To Reduce Neck Pain
Neck pain is another common reason individuals seek care from our chiropractor in Santa Clara. Neck pain can be caused by whiplash, a herniated disc, pinched nerve, poor posture, and text neck, which is caused by looking down at digital devices, like cell phones and tablets. Receiving chiropractic adjustments can help “unpinch” nerves, lower inflammation, promote healing, and reduce neck pain without the use of pain-numbing medications. It is then easier to improve your posture by maintaining proper ergonomics while sitting and standing.
3. For Car Crash Injury Recovery
Car crashes are notorious for causing hidden injuries, which are injuries that do not have any immediate visible signs, like bruising, swelling, or pain. The most common hidden car accident injury is whiplash, which is a severe sprain and strain of the neck that occurs when the head is jerked back and forth from the headrest to its maximum forward position.
Most individuals don’t notice any symptoms for the first 24 hours after their car accidents. Soon after, patients will begin to notice neck stiffness and headaches. In severe cases, whiplash can result in the upper back and arm pain. The good news is that chiropractic care is extremely effective at treating musculoskeletal injuries, including herniated discs, sprains and strains and neck, and back pain, all possible results of a car crash.
Treatment options from our chiropractor, Dr. Hoewisch, who has been serving the Santa Clara area since 1984, include manual and instrument adjustments, KST chiropractic a more in-depth chiropractic adjustment modality that involves testing and checking muscles for imbalances before performing adjustments, and the Gonstead technique. We also offer auto accident injury, and sports rehabilitation, which helps improve range of motion, endurance, and muscle strength.
4. To Enhance Wellness And Relaxation
If you frequently find yourself stressed, anxious, or experiencing frequent tension headaches, chiropractic care can help you. Experiencing high levels of stress regularly can negatively affect your sleep, make it hard for you to concentrate, and cause an increase in tension headaches and migraines. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments has been known to improve sleep, lower levels of stress, and even reduce the frequency of tension headaches and migraines. Individuals also report feeling more relaxed, having less severe allergy symptoms, and experiencing fewer viral infections, like colds and the flu.
5. To Improve Physical Performance
