Do you suffer from stress or pain? Many people believe that chiropractic benefits relate only to back pain or minor aches. However, chiropractors do so much more than alignments. Complete chiropractic care can help relieve stress, boost your immune system, and improve your nervous system function. You may benefit from a chiropractor and not know it. Peoria’s Senara wants to help you recognize the signs that point to needing chiropractic care.

Shoulder and Mid-back Pain

If you suffer from pain between your shoulders or your mid-back area, the culprit is likely your posture. Often, people who sit a lot have this problem. If you spend most of your day hunched over a computer or scrolling through your phone with little movement, you are at greater risk for thoracic pain. When your pain becomes too much to bear, a trip to the chiropractor may help.

Headaches or Migraines

Frequent and recurring headaches are not normal. There may be an underlying cause for headaches and migraines, but more often than not, headaches form due to stress or misalignment in the neck. Over-the-counter pain remedies may provide temporary relief, but there may be many chiropractic benefits that can help sufferers achieve long-lasting natural relief.

Lower Back or Shooting Leg Pain

Pain in the lower back can be excruciating. When lower back pain becomes sciatica, the pain is often debilitating. A combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy work together to take pressure off the discs and nerves in the lumbar region. This natural pain relief is preferable to invasive steroid shots and surgery.

Pregnancy causes strain and pressure on the back that many women find difficult. The farther along you are in the pregnancy, the more trouble you are bound to have. Getting comfortable is nearly impossible and lying down does little to relieve back pain. Women can find many chiropractic benefits when they seek treatment. A chiropractor helps ensure that the pelvis and spine maintain their proper form and function.
