Aches and pains from injuries and illnesses can cause more serious issues like chronic pain if left unaddressed. At Peterson Family Chiropractic, we have been providing residents of Chino Hills, CA with natural and effective chiropractic treatment for many years. Read on to learn more about the conditions commonly addressed by our chiropractor.
Common Conditions Treated
We treat a variety of conditions here at Peterson Family Chiropractic. Conditions we treat include:
- Back pain and posture issues
- Headaches and migraines
With many people working from home this past year, we are dealing with postural issues more frequently than ever. Adults forget that they need to sit appropriately at their desks and in their chairs to help support their neck, back, and other body parts while working.
Back pain is another common ailment we treat through chiropractic care. Chronic back pain can be caused by straining muscles while working throughout the day, the spine is misaligned, and a disk is ruptured or bulging. Everyone gets headaches every once in a while, but some can become so intense and chronic that they can negatively impact your day-to-day life. Several common types of headaches include:
- Tension headaches
- Cluster headaches
All of these involve pain to varying degrees around the head and eyes. Tight muscles cause tension headaches to arise, the most common of all headaches. Migraines are caused by how blood flows to the brain. This can lead to dizziness, sensitivity to lights and noise, and can last for days at a time.
Cluster headaches are very severe headaches that affect one side of the face. Getting more oxygen can help relieve pain from these types of headaches. Whiplash is usually the result of an auto accident and can lead to severe neck pain and immobility.
When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your pain and immobility. Once the source of your discomfort has been determined, we will create a chiropractic treatment plan tailored to your needs. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, restore your range of motion, and improve your body’s natural ability to repair itself. Exact adjustments performed will vary depending on the location and severity of your injury.
