Many people will avoid going to the doctor at all costs, even when they’re in pain. Back pain can be pretty severe. Oftentimes, however, it’s hard to distinguish between pain that should be left alone, verses pain that needs to be treated with chiropractic care. One thing is for certain, leaving back problems unattended will only worsen the situation, causing more damage in the long run. There are always clear indications that your back pain needs immediate attention from a chiropractor in Stamford CT. Here are 5 of them to look out for.
Every instance of achy joints is not always an indication that you need to go in for a chiropractor visit. For example, maybe you recently returned to the gym after a long hiatus, and you’re now feeling sore because you’re working muscles you haven’t worked for a while, or not at all. That’s normal. However, if you’ve been getting persistent back pain, to the point where it inhibits your quality of life, then you need to book an appointment for chiropractic care immediately.
If you’re someone who suffers from headaches often, it could be an indication that your body is severely out of alignment, but more specifically the back and neck may be out of alignment. Research has shown that people who suffer from migraines report a reduction in the frequency in which they get them, as well the intensity, with the use of regular chiropractic care. If your doctor hasn’t been able to find a solution, consider visiting a chiropractor.
Athletes, dancers and people who are heavily into fitness tend to push their bodies to its limits. While working out can be beneficial to your cardiovascular health, your body can really take a beating when intense activity occurs for long periods of time, day in and day out. Eventually, all of the pressure, jarring and straining can cause our bodies to get out of alignment, resulting in pinched nerves, slipped discs and a host of other back problems.
Whenever we experience pain in one part of the body, it is often the result of something that’s occurring in another part. If you’re experiencing weakness in the leg, tingling or any other sharp pains down the leg, it is likely the result of back problems such as a slipped disc or pinched nerve. A skilled chiropractor can examine your entire body and figure out what’s causing the pain, as well as provide the right treatment.
Perhaps you recently got in a car accident, but you didn’t feel back pain at the time. Sometimes, you may not know there’s a problem until days later. For example, whiplash is something that doesn’t usually show itself until much later. If your back was injured, be sure to make an appointment for chiropractic care immediately. Even if you don’t think it’s a big deal, if you ignore it, your back problem could get worse.
Your body is your temple. Don’t put off the urgent care you need because you’re scared to go to the doctor. A skilled chiropractor can give you the care you need in a gentle, yet effective manner.
