When to See a Chiropractor

There are numerous signs that you should see a chiropractor sooner rather than later. Many people think of chiropractors specifically for back problems, but chiropractic adjustments do much more for the entire body, both physically and mentally.

A neurologically focused, chiropractor can help identify and remove stress stuck in the nervous system which contributes to pain and dysfunction in other organs and parts of the body. Proper nervous system function is essential to your well-being because it controls how your brain communicates with the rest of your organs, muscles, and movement of your limbs.

Seeing a holistic chiropractor for chiropractic adjustments can prove to be just what the doctor ordered when resolving physical, emotional, behavioral or spinal issues. The Mayo Clinic states that chiropractic adjustments are a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The doctors at Restore Chiropractic utilize an instrument to make specific adjustments, however the intent is to make neurological changes first, which leads to spinal (or structural) changes as a result of the neuro-motor system functioning better.

Below, the experienced experts at Restore Chiropractic will list a few signs that it's time to finally see a chiropractor for chiropractic adjustments to improve your health concerns.

You Have Consistent Muscle and Joint Pain

One sign that you should start seeing a chiropractor is when you have muscle and joint pain that won't go away. This can often indicate that there is nerve interference within the central nervous system that causes dysfunction in your body.

It is essential not to ignore the pain because, odds are, it will start to increase over time. We recommend that you see a chiropractor to remove subluxation and improve the communication pathways in your nervous system. With each neurological adjustment, your body can improve in  blood circulation, as well as optimizing the nerves of your muscles and joints.

You Experience Back Pain Throughout the Day

If you are experiencing intense back pain, seeing a chiropractor can help improve the overall management of discomfort and symptoms. Back pain can result from your work, posture, exercise, or just about any activity you perform daily. You should consider consulting a chiropractor if you have recently experienced an injury like a car accident.

You Have Frequent Headaches

Headaches may seem unrelated to your spine, but they're often a sign that you should see a chiropractor. This is because spine issues may disturb blood flow to your brain. It is essential to see a holistic chiropractor to help improve the supply of oxygen and blood to your brain, which can reduce your chance of headaches. Torque Release Technique adjustments are recommended for any patients trying to better manage episodic or chronic migraines.

Your Limbs Are Stiff

Any experiences of stiffness in your legs, arm, or neck is another sign that it's probably a good idea to see a chiropractor. If you notice decreased mobility and flexibility, you may be at risk of jeopardizing the activities or hobbies that define your lifestyle.

Seeing a chiropractor has been known to improve overall range of motion and relieve aches and pains associated with joint stiffness.

Your Posture is Poor

Poor posture is another sign that it is time to see a chiropractor, and it is a sign that you should never ignore. This is because poor posture that goes untreated can often lead to instability in the joints of the spine, or “slipped” spinal discs if things get worse. More importantly, poor posture causes stress on the central nervous system and can lead to other health concerns such as headaches, poor mobility, sciatic pain, and forward head posture.

A chiropractor can identify the root cause of your poor posture and create an individualized care plan to resolve your postural concerns. Additional approaches like posture correctors, standing desks, or ergonomic chairs may also be helpful, but these lifestyle or workplace changes don’t always provide long term correction like chiropractic adjustment can. An optimally functioning nervous system, leading to the proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
