When To See A Chiropractor
At Peterson Chiropractic, serving the Chino Hills area, we offer a variety of treatment options for everything from back pain to physical therapy following accidents. But one question our patients often come with is, “Do I actually need a chiropractor for this problem?” Chiropractic treatments can help with many different conditions! Here are the top signs that visiting a chiropractor can help your situation.
You Have Muscle Problems
Do you have a recurring knot or a pulled/torn muscle? Chiropractors can help you create a plan of treatment including physical therapy, stretches, massage, and other techniques to help you recover and restore full mobility.
You Have Joint Problems
People suffering from torn ligaments or tendons, joint inflammation, and other joint problems can see a chiropractor to help diagnose the extent of the injury and find treatments that will work. In these cases, it’s often important to immobilize the joint while it starts healing, and then find the right physical therapy program to restore mobility afterward. A professional opinion on when and how these treatments should be done is very important.
You Suffered a Sports-Related or Car Accident Injury
Chiropractors frequently see people with sports and accident injuries, including whiplash, the aftermath of dislocations, and similar injuries. In these cases, people should visit a doctor for a professional examination of any injuries. However, when discussing treatment options for less serious injuries, visiting a chiropractor for more targeted advice can be beneficial. A chiropractor can provide massage therapy, acupuncture, and other treatments to relieve pain and create a plan for physical therapy at the right time – without risking recurring injuries and other problems.
You Suffer from Lower Back Pain
Do you have back pain you can’t quite narrow down? Does it keep coming back no matter what you do? A chiropractor can help pinpoint the pain and offer treatments like spinal manipulation and massage to treat it. You can also get advice on changes to your habits or diet to help make a difference!
