While we recommend seeing a chiropractor after a car accident, the most important way to…
When your back hurts, it’s likely that one of the first solutions you think of is to see a chiropractor. Getting a back adjustment is growing more and more common, and it provides relief for millions of people. However, what most people don’t know is that a chiropractor can help with other types of pain as well. If you’re unsure of what other symptoms your chiropractor can help with, we’ve put together 4 reasons to see a chiropractor besides back pain.
Many people suffer from knee pain at some point in their life. This can lead to reduced mobility, inflammation, and poor posture. A chiropractor can help align your joints, including your knees, and relieve the stress. Your back alignment is highly impacted by your hips, knees, and ankles. Everything is connected, so starting with alignment from the bottom up is often a solution that can bring great results to your overall health. Seeking relief from knee pain will also help relieve pain elsewhere in the body.
Neck pain is increasingly common. Whether it be from whiplash, sleeping in an odd position, or “text neck”, it’s easy to feel stiff. A chiropractor can help relieve the tension in your neck and shoulders by adjusting your neck. Even if the issue is the muscles in your neck, a chiropractor works to relieve any stress on the muscles due to pulling ligaments and misaligned spines. This can improve your life by reducing headaches, stress, and overall discomfort.
As we mentioned above, hip alignment is essential for your overall posture and physical health. Misalignment is an issue common among athletes with high-impact sports, and with chiropractic care, it doesn’t have to slow them down. It can also occur in less active individuals, where a sedentary lifestyle can relax your body too much and cause weak muscles and misaligned hips. Keeping your bones aligned can also help your muscles around them relax and work in the right way, so that you can strengthen your glutes and quads to help keep you aligned naturally.

Following an accident, your body has most likely just absorbed a large impact. This can mean misalignment and pain in multiple areas of your body, and lead to bigger issues down the road.
