Are everyday aches and pains slowing you down? If so, you may benefit from seeing a chiropractor.
A chiropractor is a healthcare professional who focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. The body is controlled by the nervous system, and it’s well-documented that spinal joint dysfunction can irritate or affect the nervous system negatively. Chiropractic care is the science of locating these areas of spinal dysfunction and the art of correcting them.
We are proud to offer chiropractic services at HonorHealth Orthopedics – Shea, which is part of HonorHealth’s comprehensive Orthopedics program.
Treatment for a wide range of issues
Chiropractic treatment is most commonly associated with problems of the neck and back. However, if you have shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, foot or ankle problems, you may also respond well to chiropractic care.
At HonorHealth, we offer:
- Chiropractic care for both the spine and the extremity joints.
- Relief from back, neck, muscle and joint pain, stiffness, headaches, nerve pain and peripheral neuropathy, degenerative arthritis, shoulder pain and rotator cuff injuries, hip and knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and carpal tunnel.
- Treatment for people who have experienced sports, work and auto accident-related injuries.
- Management of side effects during and following cancer treatments including chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy, nausea, low energy and headaches.
At HonorHealth Orthopedics – Shea, we treat patients with manual adjustment techniques, rehabilitative exercises, acupuncture and Class IV laser therapy. The laser is a painless, non-invasive therapy that can relieve pain, reduce swelling and increase range of motion. We also use an Impulse IQ, which is an instrument that makes gentle adjustments on people who may be more sensitive, especially effective and popular with older patients. Stretching and strengthening exercises are prescribed to patients so they can increase their flexibility and muscle health. In terms of preventive care, we offer counseling on posture management, including best practices for reading, computer use and sleeping positions.
Care that complements traditional medicine
Chiropractic treatment is complementary to other medical care, including surgical treatments. For example, chiropractic services can help provide relief if you are struggling with issues before or after an operation to repair joint issues.
At its core, chiropractic care helps your body self-heal and self-regulate, and enhances the effectiveness of other treatments, so you can get back to doing what you love – without the pain.
