Conditions & Symptoms Treated at Our Columbus Chiropractic Clinic
At Midwest Chiropractic Center, our Columbus chiropractor, Dr. Peter Manz, treats a variety of common pain symptoms, as well as chronic fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Whether you suffer from back and neck pain, foot pain, leg pain, headaches and migraines, or general fatigue, our treatments can help manage these symptoms without the need for medication. Chiropractic adjustments address the underlying cause for pain symptoms, restoring spinal alignment and supporting whole body health.
Acute and Chronic Pain Relief for a Variety of Common Symptoms
Back pain is one of our patients’ most common complaints. Everything from poor posture to a slip and fall can cause a misalignment in the lumbar or thoracic spine.
Sciatica is also a symptom of a spinal misalignment. Radiating and numbing pain the lower back, along with buttock pain and leg pain, indicates that a herniated disc is compressing the sciatic nerve.
Chiropractic adjustments are the most effective technique for treating sciatica and relieving pain the lower, middle or upper back. These adjustments restore proper alignment to the spine, which relieves pressure on the nerves and reduces pain.
Car Accident/Whiplash Injury
An untreated whiplash injury is frequently responsible for neck pain, headaches and migraines. Whiplash can cause a misalignment in the cervical spine, which ultimately can trigger neck pain. If the misalignment places pressure on the RCPM muscle, the muscle can spasm and cause recurring headaches and migraines. Chiropractic adjustments are the best way to treat these pain symptoms. Just like with back pain, as long as a misalignment in the spine persists, so too will the pain. By correcting the underlying subluxation, Dr. Manz provides long-lasting pain relief without the need for medication.
Foot & Leg Pain
Foot and leg problems can be extremely painful, especially if the ability to move naturally is compromised. Foot pain is frequently caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition characterized by the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue in the feet that supports the arches. Plantar fasciitis make it difficult for the foot to properly support a patient’s body and weight. This lack of support can trigger leg pain, knee pain and hip pain. Correcting this imbalance in the feet is essential to managing pain symptoms. Chiropractic care can help, as can stabilizing orthotics. These treatments help relieve inflammation and bring balance back to the feet, creating a strong foundation for the body.
Patients who suffer from fibromyalgia or other chronic pain conditions can also benefit from chiropractic care. While spinal adjustments cannot “cure” these conditions, regular adjustments can help better manage pain symptoms, including tenderness and fatigue. A spinal misalignment can affect communication between the central nervous system and the brain. Recent research indicates that this misalignment may be affect how the brain processes pain signals, amplifying certain signals associated with tender points along the body. Regular adjustments help maintain proper alignment, which helps to reduce chronic pain and also to improve energy levels.
