Symptoms Treated
Low Back Pain

It's estimated that eight out of 10 people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. A recent study on the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders in the U.S. estimated that 40 million Americans aged 20-64 will experience "frequent" low back pain (LBP), with 15% suffering from LBP lasting up to two weeks at a time!

There's no clear-cut way to resolve back pain, but chiropractic offers the most promise. Witness the results of a recent study comparing one-month outcomes for 93 chiropractic patients and 45 medical patients with chronic, recurrent LBP. Chiropractic care included spinal manipulation and various forms of physiotherapy, averaging four patient visits. Medical care averaged one visit and frequently included the prescription of anti-inflammatory drugs.

Patients treated by chiropractors showed better overall improvement and satisfaction after one month than patients treated by family physicians. Chiropractic patients showed substantial decreases in pain severity, functional disability, and pain quality, while medical patients showed only minimal improvements with regard to the first two measures, and deterioration in the third.

If you're suffering from low back pain, the road to recovery may not be an easy one, but it begins with chiropractic! Schedule a consultation with the doctors at Spinal Rehab and Wellness Center today.

Headaches

When it comes to common health issues, there is perhaps no more frustrating ailment than migraines. Migraines seem to always happen when you are most stressed and come not only with severe and debilitating head pain, but sensitivity to sound and light, dizziness and often nausea as well. No matter how hard you try it seems as though the only thing you can do to endure the pain of a migraine is to wait it out until it is over and try to manage the symptoms to the best of your ability. However, there is good news for those who suffer from migraines. Chiropractic care can help reduce the frequency and the severity of your migraines, meaning less time cooped up in bed and more time living your life.

 

Chiropractic adjustments are not only great for helping reduce the severity of migraines, but regular chiropractic care can also help reduce the frequency of these migraines as well. What many people don’t realize is that their poor posture can actually contribute to their migraines. When you spend the whole day hunched over a phone, tablet or computer screen, you start putting some serious strain on your neck and back muscles, which can increase chances of getting subluxations and a migraine.

 
Neck Pain

If you haven’t heard about Text Neck yet, this has become a new buzzword in the health industry to describe a very common issue that impacts people today. Text neck is a condition that formed when you overuse your neck, back and shoulder muscles by keeping yourself in a hunched over position, typically the position that occurs when you spend a lot of time looking down and forward, such as you would when looking on a mobile device. When you keep yourself in this position, it can cause serious strain on the spine. Text Neck is more than just a cautionary tale that parents can use to keep their kids off their phones, it is a real issue and something that can cause daily pain and discomfort as well as life-long damage to your spine. While Text Neck is a real and serious issue, the good news is it is also one that can be improved with chiropractic care, if you take the time to visit your chiropractor and get the assistance that you need.

 

Text Neck is a serious issue and one of the first things that you can do to start combating the signs of Text Neck is to start improving your posture. Work on keeping your back straight, your shoulders back and try to maintain a neutral spine when using technology. This not only applies to mobile devices, but e-readers, tablets, laptops and computers as well. Remember, when you visit your chiropractor and they tell you that you have damage from your posture, or Text Neck, it won’t necessarily be a quick fix to restore the curve in your neck and get you to be pain free. The damage you have done has been from hundreds of hours of keeping your head in this position. A problem that has been building this long, won’t be fixed in a matter of minutes. However, if you are willing to put the time into visiting your chiropractor on your recommended healthcare plan, you can get the assistance you need to restore your neck and start living the pain-free life you deserve.

 
Whiplash

Whiplash refers to injury to the neck resulting from an unrestrained, rapid forward and backward movement of the head. The sudden force can cause damage to the bone structure of the neck, and stretch and tear the muscles and tendons in your neck, causing soft tissue damage. The most common cause of whiplash is due to car accidents, often when the occupants of one vehicle are struck from behind by another vehicle. Athletes involved in contact sports, such as football, can also suffer from whiplash.

 

Whiplash injures can be quite complex, and even debilitating. Sometimes symptoms are immediate, and other times it may take hours or days for symptoms to present themselves. Common symptoms of whiplash can include: Neck pain and stiffness, Increased pain with neck movement, Headaches starting from the base of the skull, Decreased range of motion in the neck, Pain or tenderness in the shoulders, upper back, or arms or Fatigue Dizziness.

Treatment for whiplash ranges from traditional medicine and chiropractic care to massage and physical therapy. Depending on the severity of your whiplash, treatment options may include rest, ice and heat, medication, stretching and specific exercises, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), ultrasound, and foam collars. Chiropractic care is a very effective treatment method for those who suffer from whiplash. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment option, or in conjunction with other treatments. At Spinal Rehab and Wellness Center our Naperville and Aurora chiropractic clinic specializes in treating symptoms of whiplash. Chiropractic adjustments for whiplash involving joint dysfunction may involve the chiropractor gently moving the affected joint in the direction it is restricted. This and other spinal manipulation techniques can help relieve neck pain and restore alignment of vertebrae in the neck that may be contributing to whiplash symptoms.
