Your spine must support and mobilize your entire body -- and a variety of disorders and injuries can interfere with those demanding functions, leaving you with pain and other disabling symptoms. The good news is that you can address many of these problems without risky major procedures such as back or neck surgery. Arlington Chiropractic Clinic can provide safe, conservative healing options to help you get your spine back in line.
The spine is more complex than many people realize. The core of the spine is the set of 33 vertebrae, cushioned by discs and articulated by facet joints that support your body and protect the spinal cord within. Large muscle groups and other tissues lend strength and flexibility to the spine, while nerve roots jut out from intervertebral spaces to relay signals to the rest of the body. Problems that affect this delicate balance include:
Spinal problems don't just cause localized pain and loss of function. They can also pinch nerves, referring pain, weakness, numbness, and other symptoms to any area of the body served by those nerves.
Spinal treatment begins with a spinal evaluation from one of our Arlington Chiropractic Clinic doctors. Once we've diagnosed your spinal condition, we focus on treating and correcting its underlying cause. A chiropractic adjustment is a tried-and-true method of restoring function and relieving pain in spinal segments that have fallen out of position or lost their normal motion. Shifting errant components away from nerve tissue, stretching soft tissues, and loosening tight joints all contribute to the relief that is experienced from spinal adjustments.
In some cases, orthotic footwear may be needed to correct a skeletal imbalance. Exercise therapy is used to reinforce the normal movement patterns of the spinal segments that are being adjusted. Additionally, techniques such as massage therapy and acupuncture may be incorporated to help aching tissues feel better and heal themselves more efficiently. Nutritional and lifestyle strategies such as weight loss can take pressure off your spinal column and muscles. Every treatment approach is customized to each individual patient’s condition and needs. Come and experience what our comprehensive care feels like.
