Experiencing pain in your back, neck, shoulders and other parts of your body can significantly limit your activities and lower your quality of life. A chiropractor is able to identify which areas of your body are suffering and use chiropractic adjustments along with other techniques to relieve discomfort. This can have a profound effect on how you’re feeling on a daily basis.

If you are suffering from pain and discomfort and wondering if you should seek help, below we have listed some of the most common reasons for visiting a chiropractor.

Headaches & Migraines

A popular reason for people to visit a chiropractor is that they are suffering from headaches or migraines which can sometimes occur because of restricted vertebrae, leading to straining the neck and headaches. A chiropractor is able to help restore the function of the spine, easing the pain and reducing the frequency of the headaches.

Back, Neck & Shoulder Pain

It doesn’t matter if you live an active or sedentary lifestyle, issues can arise and you can still experience pain in the back, neck and shoulders. This can restrict your range of motion and prevent you from being able to comfortably make movements such as bending down and turning your head. If it is likely you’ll continue to live a similar lifestyle then regular chiropractic adjustments can be beneficial alongside better self-management.

Sitting Down All Day

Sitting down for long periods of time is one of the most common causes of back pain. If you spend most of the day sitting down at a desk or driving a motor vehicle, followed by sitting around at home, you might begin to develop bad posture and experience some physical problems, including pain, making it uncomfortable to either sit or stand. A chiropractor can help provide relief from back pain caused by sitting down all day.

A Sports Injury

If you have suffered from a sports injury or have been in any type of accident, you should consider visiting a chiropractor. Once you have recovered from the initial injury, and even if you weren’t hurt initially, you may still suffer from issues caused by stiffness, dysfunction or a limited range of motion. Injury can also occur from overusing certain muscles or parts of the body, leading to pain and stiffness. It is easier to treat the problem sooner rather than later.
