Chiropractors treat a broad range of spinal conditions that include nerve pain and musculoskeletal problems. As with other types of doctors, chiropractors does a physical and neurological examination as part of making a proper diagnosis similar to what they do with different types of doctors. Additionally, your physician might request X-rays or CT scan tests to confirm your diagnosis. This article discusses several spine-related issues that can be examined and addressed with chiropractic treatment.

Musculoskeletal and nerve pain can be caused by a variety of conditions that chiropractors are experts in treating.


Back Strains And Strains: are frequent among adults, and approximately three out of four sufferers. Sprains occur when ligaments (the tough tissues which connect bones) become stretched out or damaged which results in the bones becoming separated. Strains are injuries that result in injuries to a muscle or tendon. For example chronic back pain, or chronic back pain could result from lifting excessive weights, engage in an intense sport or even make a wrong turn or bend in your everyday activities. Stabbing, aching, searing or tingling or mild pain are possible sensations.


Cervicogenic Headaches: are caused by neck pain and can last several days. The majority of people feel pain at the back of their head, temples, or behind the eyes when they have the type of headache. Cervicogenic headaches may be as headaches that are cluster or migraines.


Coccydynia: is one of the forms of back pain which occurs in the tailbone. Coccydynia is a condition that can be caused by falling or riding a bicycle for a long time. It can become worse when sitting. It could be that pain is present without a reason determined in certain instances.


Degenerative disc Disease (DDD): is a common type of disc disease that is typically associated with aging. Because of decades of strain, excessive use and poor treatment the intervertebral discs - the pillow-like cushions that cushion your vertebrae -- can begin to degrade or break down as you age. As a result, the discs may lose flexibility, suppleness and shock absorption. They also become thinner due to dehydration.


Herniated Discs: can be typically found in the lower back and neck. Radiculopathy refers to a condition that occurs when the substance inside (nucleus or outer ring) of a herniated disc squeezes the nerve root nearby.


Myofascial Pain: is a chronic pain illness in which pressure on sensitive spots in your muscles (known as trigger points) can cause deep, excruciating pain in seemingly unrelated portions of your body, like your neck or back. Myofascial pain can feel like it's a "knot", and can occur when muscle activity has been repeated in rapid succession.


Piriformis Syndrome: occurs when the piriformis muscle (a small muscle located in the buttocks) compresses or irritates the sciatic nerve leading to discomfort and pain. One or both of the legs can become affected by pain or symptoms emanating out of the buttocks (tingling or the sensation of numbness).


Sciatica: is an indication that the sciatic nerve or a branch thereof, is compressed or inflamed. Sciatica can be described as moderate to severe pain below the knee on one leg. Patients suffering from sciatica can experience intense, shooting pains or other symptoms similar like an electric shock.


Leg Length Dispersion: Also called short leg or leg length discrepancy, is a condition in which one leg are shorter than the other (e.g. one leg is shorter than the other). This can be caused by various structural issues like congenital impairments, or postural problems (e.g. pelvic tilt).


Spondylosis: also known as facet joint pain is a condition that affects the spine as well as the other bones. The process of aging can be associated with arthritis in the knee.


Whiplash: is the injury to the hyperflexion/hyperextension joints of the neck and upper back that are common after a car is rear-ended. It is also possible to sustain serious neck strain when your neck or head is "whipped" suddenly and swiftly forward (hyperflexion) or in reverse (hyperextension).



Chiropractic care is the best option for the spinal as well as the nervous system. Because of their experience in treating back pain and pinched nerves, chiropractors are able to aid patients suffering from a wide range of health concerns. Chiropractic care is an excellent choice if you are looking to enhance your overall health.
