Most people are aware that chiropractors help alleviate spine related pains, but are unaware of the full range of benefits associated with chiropractic care. Spine and Sport Chiropractic in Tuscaloosa has been helping patients find relief since the early 2000s using various chiropractic and physical therapy treatment modalities. Through chiropractic treatment, we can reduce your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
For injury prevention, we encourage our patients to seek nutritional counseling and lifestyle management counseling. These are areas that our staff specializes in. With individualized counseling, we have helped many of our patients achieve and maintain optimal health. We also offer posture and spinal screenings to help patients understand their spinal health. Screenings can help detect issues that could lead to future health problems.
It is known that chiropractors treat pain related to neuromuscular disorders and musculoskeletal pain. It is not as widely known that many maladies stem from problems in the spinal column. The spinal column is surrounded by a network of nerves that send messages throughout the human body. Injury to the spinal column can affect the nerves and the messages being sent out to the body, causing many types of pain. Nerve damage or disease is known as neuropathy.
- Symptoms: Symptoms of neuropathy vary from person to person. The most common symptoms of neuropathy include numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands, feet, arms, and legs as well as tremors and weakness. Pain and inflammation in the feet, ankles, hands, and wrists can lead to an impaired range of motion. Less common symptoms include headaches, fatigue, and neck stiffness.
- Causes: The cause of your neuropathy must be determined before treatment can be administered. Neuropathy can be caused by traumatic injuries such as car accidents, sports injuries, and postural weakness. It can also be caused by infection, malnourishment, exposure to toxins, alcoholism, or disease.
- Treatment: Treatment for neuropathy will depend on the cause. Chiropractic treatment is an effective non-pharmaceutical remedy. Massage, physical therapy, and spinal manipulation offer relief from neuropathy pain.
