Have you been struggling with pain on all or most days of the week for at least three months? If so, you're in the company of about 1 in 5 Americans who are currently affected by chronic pain. Given the current epidemic of opioid addiction in this country, it's no wonder why so many health experts are advising people to explore drug-free options for pain relief. Our chiropractor at Premier Alternative Health Center treats several different chronic and acute pain conditions in Colorado Springs.
Back Pain and Neck Pain
Chiropractic care is proven effective for many common conditions that cause back pain and neck pain. These conditions include disc herniation, disc bulge, degenerative disc disease, whiplash, scoliosis, stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica, spondylosis, facet joint locking, and spinal muscle spasms. These issues can arise due to a variety of factors, such as a sports injury, auto accident injury, work injury, or simply the cumulative effect of many risk factors like sedentary behavior, slips and falls, smoking, and obesity.
Our Colorado Springs chiropractor can help you address your individual risk factors, improve your spinal alignment, and heal your spinal tissues for long-lasting drug-free relief. Techniques such as spinal adjustments also act on the central nervous system to promote relaxation and a natural analgesic effect.
Migraines and Tension Headaches
If you've ever had a migraine, then you know how they can literally knock you off your feet. Migraines tend to occur with severe throbbing head pain, vision changes, and nausea. But even chronic tension headaches, which are usually less severe, can still disrupt your daily life. Our chiropractor uses techniques like spinal adjustments, postural re-training, and acupuncture that are proven to reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches and migraines to give you more pain-free days.
Our chiropractor does far more than just heal the spine. He also uses natural solutions such as corrective exercises and lifestyle counseling to address conditions affecting the arms and legs. Some of the more common conditions we treat include the following:
- Shoulder dislocation
- Labrum tears
- Muscle strains and tendon tears (e.g., rotator cuff, quadriceps, hamstring, Achilles)
- Golfer's elbow and tennis elbow (medial and lateral epicondylitis)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Ligament sprains, especially in the knee and ankle
- Shin splints
- Plantar fasciitis
