Lower Back Pain
Do you have poor posture? Are you sedentary? Or, do you exercise too much? In your work, do you habitually sit in one position? Is your lifestyle stressful? Answering “yes” to any of these questions makes you a prime candidate for low back problems. Pinched nerves can result, causing symptoms, and if left untreated, serious disability can occur.
Spinal discs, though blamed with causing a long list of physical ailments, do provide essential benefits to your health. These vital inter-vertebral “pads” allow you to move about with the ease and flexibility. They are the spine’s shock absorbers. Discs have few nerves, causing no true symptoms on their own. It is only when they bulge or “slip” due to weakness or wedging, along with misalignment of the vertebrae above and below them, that they press upon the spinal cord or nerves, thus producing symptoms.
Chiropractic treatment of arthritis has been proven remarkably effective in treating various types of joint pain and the symptoms that arise from the condition. Arthritis manifests itself in many forms but regardless of the type of arthritis you have, it’s usually both painful and debilitating. Whether cartilage around the joint wears out, or it’s an autoimmune disorder of the joints, arthritis in any form comprises of more than 100 diseases and conditions. Trusted Fort Worth chiropractors at Atlas Medical Center see many patients with arthritic-like conditions and we treat them with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and pain management.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel is a debilitating joint disorder similar to arthritis, which limits many people from using their hands on a daily basis. Performing simple tasks like typing, playing the piano, turning a door knob, or swinging a golf club, can become increasingly difficult and very painful. If your sleep is being interrupted at night by pain and aching in your wrists, this can lead to other health issues that limit your ability to function properly during working hours, please contact us immediately to seek help before your pain gets worse.
Migraine & Headaches
Recurring headaches that strike without warning (migraines) affect more than 15 million Americans today, prompting sufferers to spend $300 million dollars each year for temporary remedies. The tension headache and the migraine headache are the two major types of chronic headaches, with the migraine being the most common. For the past 65 years, migraine victims have found significant help from chiropractors. We know that migraine headaches result primarily from stretching the arteries and nerves of the head. This causes headaches of varying severity, lasting from several hours to several days. The syndrome’s most notable feature: symptoms usually start on one side, spreading to the entire head as the migraine develops.
One of the greatest dangers of recurring headaches is that they something to be ignored, assuming they will go away. What patients forget is that a headache is a symptom, and it is one of the most potent warning signs used by the human body. Popping pills may help temporarily, but, unfortunately, that only provides false sense of security. Often there are simple explanations: you may have eaten too much, drunk too much, or been irregular in your habits. The return to normal, desirable habits could stop the nagging headaches.
Many patients who come to our clinic experience sciatic nerve pain. If you haven’t, count yourself lucky, because the pain you experience from this pinched nerve can be excruciating. Sciatic pain can be sharp, tingling and cause numbness to your lower back and leg. We successfully treat many patients for this problem, and the good news is that it doesn’t require surgery.
Hip & Leg Pain
Legs “work” from the hips and provide our main means of locomotion. They permit us to participate actively in work, sports, leisure time activities, etc. What directs our legs to do all of these things and more? Nerve impulses emanating from our brains are the keys.
Arm & Shoulder Pain
Are you suffering needlessly from shoulder and arm symptoms? Shoulder and arm symptoms can have a number of contributing causes, but the highest percentage of cases are caused by misalignment of one or more spinal segments (vertebrae and the discs between them) due to injury to the spine, curvatures, occupational stresses, or even improper posture. All can result in a pinched nerve, which causes radiating symptoms to the shoulder and arm.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is an excellent means of helping the body heal, when combined with chiropractic therapy. Atlas Medical Center offers this therapy, along with spinal adjustments therapy. Muscle stimulation is accomplished by attaching an electrode to the affected area and then sending a small electrical current into the soft tissue injury or knotted muscle. The stimulation utilizes this current, promoting a reduction in swelling and releasing trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body release natural endorphins that help reduce pain.
