Signs It's Time to Go to a Chiropractor

Signs It’s Time to See a Mobile Chiropractor

Did you know that there are tens of millions of Americans that seek chiropractic care? This is because of the many benefits a chiropractor offers! Without further ado, these are the signs it’s time to go to a chiropractor.

 

Unexplained Pain

Do you suddenly feel pain in your neck or back and it doesn’t resolve itself? Or do you find it challenging to sit in place, stand, or bend?

These are signs that it’s time to visit your chiropractor, then! Chiropractic treatment helps treat muscle-related and unexplained back pain, stiff neck, and other body pain.

If you feel a sudden, sharp, and shooting pain in your legs that causes tingling and weakness, book a session with a chiropractor. They can help diagnose and treat such pain, which usually comes from a slipped disc or pinched nerve.

 

Frequent Headaches

There are a ton of reasons why you would experience headaches, including poor nutrition and stress from work.

Other times, frequent headaches come from spine misalignment. Professional chiropractors can help relieve headaches caused by this reason, so you experience fewer headaches and less intense pain. That’s because improving your spine alignment can aid in blood and oxygen flow to the brain!

 

Poor Posture

Most people work in jobs that require them to sit for hours at a time in front of their computers. Unfortunately, we aren’t always aware of the way we sit or stand while working. Usually, we would be hunched over with our shoulders tense without realizing it. Or when we’re slouching while standing and walking.

While poor posture doesn’t sound like a serious health risk, it’s silently affecting our health negatively. By the time we start becoming aware of our posture and proactively improve it, the damage is done.

This is where a chiropractor comes along, as they can help realign the spine and alleviate pressure on the discs before it becomes a serious issue.

 

Limited Range of Motion

Decreased flexibility may be age-related, but it can also be caused by spine misalignment. So, if you begin experiencing joint stiffness and loss of elasticity in the muscles or tendons, we recommend having it checked by a reputable chiropractor.

Chronic Pain

You can describe pain by its duration, acute or chronic. This can help you find out if you need to see a chiropractor.

Acute pain is pain lasting for 3-6 months, while chronic pain lasts over six months and becomes worse or outlasts the healing process (if caused by an injury).

Examples of chronic pain include arthritis, lower back pain, and headaches. Fortunately, you can head back to a pain-free life through a trained chiropractor. Not only can they provide appropriate treatments, but they also design a daily strategy to help prevent injury while maintaining optimum spinal health.

 

Sedentary Lifestyle

Did you know that the average American spends over eight hours of their day seated? This ties back to poor posture.

Moreover, sitting for a long time can cause tight hips and leg weakness. And because the pelvis is the foundation of our spines, this can cause issues with our alignment.

Going back to poor posture, it can cause unnecessary pressure on the spine and shoulders. This can cause pain, swelling, and misalignments. Before it worsens, you’ll want to get it checked by a chiropractor to remove some of the tension to prevent severe issues.

 

Shoes Wear Unevenly

You probably don’t pay attention to the soles of your shoes. But try to do so now!

Do you feel that one shoe loses bounce and traction before the other side? This is uneven wear, which can be caused by how you are aligned (or misaligned). That means one side of the body receives even more pressure compared to the other. As a result, you experience uneven weight distribution.

Chiropractors can help even out that pressure, so you feel better, and your shoes won’t be mismatched in the long run!

 

You Had an Accident

Car accidents can cause a ton of damage to our bodies without us realizing it until later on. While you think you escaped from the accident unscathed, your spine might not be as good as it was before.

After experiencing major physical stress like car accidents, your spine may come across various issues. Whether you experience pain or not, it’s always worth having yourself checked by your doctor and chiropractor. They can tell if your body is in excellent condition or if there are small issues to remedy before they worsen.

The same will go for those who engage in physical sports and activities daily, as you are putting your body under physical stress daily.

With all these signs in mind, it’s also important to have yourself checked with your doctor to rule out any serious conditions or illnesses causing some of the symptoms mentioned above. Moreover, you’ll want to ask if a chiropractor is the best decision based on your family history and individual conditions.
