Far too often, people associate a chiropractor with merely treating back problems. However, the scope of any chiropractor's practice extends beyond back pain. In fact, at ShoreLife Chiropractic & Wellness, serving Brick, NJ and the nearby region, we do help people who have sciatica, low back pain, and other back issues. However, at our family chiropractic care center, we also help those find pain relief treatment for neck pain, headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, joint pain, and various musculoskeletal issues.
We treat a variety of causes of both upper and low back pain. For instance, we help individuals who have injured discs in their back including both herniated and bulging disc. A herniated disc occurs when you have a crack in the outer shell of a disc. The contents of the disc begin to seep through the shell. On the other hand, a bulging disc occurs when the outer shell weakens, and it pushes on that weakened shell. Some patients suffer from back pain as a result of sciatica, which is a nerve-related issue that causes pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness. We also treat patients who suffer from spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease.
Neck pain is another issue our chiropractor can treat. We have patients who suffer from neck pain as a result of poor posture as well as individuals who sustained a personal injury. For example, we provide treatment to patients who have whiplash as a result of an automobile accident.
Headaches and Migraines
Headaches and migraines can stem from issues with the soft tissue in your neck. It's possible for frequent headaches to occur from irritation in these areas. Therefore, we may use an alignment for pain relief. In some cases, headaches and migraines occur as the result of a nutrient deficiency. Therefore, it's often beneficial to a patient to receive nutritional counseling.
Arthritis and Other Causes of Joint Pain
Through exercise therapy and other pain relief techniques, our chiropractor can assist people who have arthritis, bursitis, and other causes of joint pain. In some cases, we fit a patient with a brace to support the area.
Other Causes of Pain
Some of our patients have fibromyalgia. This particular condition can cause widespread pain throughout a person's body. While the exact cause of fibromyalgia isn't known, we use natural techniques like alignments to manage the pain. We help individuals who sustain an injury that affects an area of the musculoskeletal system. For instance, we treat patients who have a strain or a sprain as the result of a personal injury. Sometimes, our patients come to us when they have pain due to the aging process.
