Edmond Chiropractor: More reasons an athlete should seek regular chiropractic care

The Edmond chiropractor is back with a few more reasons why athletes should consider seeing a chiropractor regularly. Previously, we’ve gone over how seeing a chiropractor can reduce pain from regular play, keep you in your top performing shape, and undo much of the wear and tear from regular play. But there are also a few more reasons to consider, especially in regards to injury rehabilitation and treatment.

Non-Invasive/Drug free treatment: Small injuries are common in sports, especially sports like football and rugby were full contact happens often. If your looking for a drug-free, non-invasive way to treat many of these injuries chiropractors may have a solutions. There are many procedures a chiropractor can perform that are non-invasive and require no drugs. Some of these include electrical stimulation to help relieve tension towards the surface of the muscle. Active release techniques combine massage and stretching with movement to help relieve tension and pain in affected joints while also restoring range of motion. Functional dry needling focuses on stimulating deep trigger points to help release tension built up in muscles and keep them relaxed. Finally, they’re is the Graston Technique that can help break down scar tissue through the use of stainless steel tools.

Other injuries: It’s not just skeletal and nerve pain and injuries that a chiropractor can help treat. Shoulder injuries can also be effectively managed by proper chiropractic care, reducing pain in the shoulders. Headaches originating in the neck can also be alleviated by a spinal adjustment from a trained chiropractor. Ankle sprains can also be treated by chiropractors, resulting in the restoration of the range of motion and pain relief.

Edmond Chiropractors: Relieving headaches

Edmond Chiropractors talks about relieving headaches

According to the American Chiropractic Association, nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Here with the Edmond Chiropractors we’ve seen multiple patients that have suffered from Chronic or very common headaches. Headaches feel like pain, dull or sharp. Specifically, they can be in any region of the head on one or both sides.

Like we said, a headache pain can take many forms. The pain can be sharp or dull, throbbing or constant. We’ve had patients say the headaches can seem to come on slowly while other times it can come all at once. Here’s the thing though, a headache is not actually about pain in your brain. Rather, it’s your brain’s way to tell you another part of your body hurts, a part that can’t feel pain itself. This pain manifests in your brain.

In truth, most headaches occur in the nerves, muscles, and blood vessels that cover most of your head and neck. Our Edmond Chiropractors have seen patients who say their headaches last for several hours while others have said they could last for several days. Like most pain, the go-to “quick fix” for most is to reach for a bottle of aspirin or some other pain relief medication.

The thing about trying to cover up this pain with medication is that your headaches will eventually just come back because you’re not treating the causes of the pain. Eventually, one or two pills won’t take care the pain anymore. Eventually, you may find yourself taking more and more medication to help keep the pain at bay. What if there was a better way? Often times, our patients feel instant relief from just getting a spinal adjustment by our Edmond Chiropractors.

Our Edmond chiropractors love to see people walk away with a feeling of improved well-being. If you could stop having ongoing headaches, would you do it? If you would like to know more or want to schedule your appointment please give us a call @ 405-285-7325.

Edmond Chiropractors Talk About Headaches

Headache Relief & Edmond Chiropractors

The American Chiropractic Association has provided data revealing that nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Our Edmond chiropractors have seen multiple patients that have suffered from chronic headaches or even just headaches that occur on a seldom basis. Headaches just feel like such a pain. More specifically, they can be in any region of the head and sometimes on only one side of the head.

A headache may be a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation or a dull ache. Sometimes patients tell our Edmond chiropractors that their headaches can seem to come on slowly and other times they are suddenly there. Here’s the interesting part: Although it may feel like it, a headache is not actually a pain in your brain. It’s actually the brain’s way to tell you when other parts of your body hurt, but it can’t feel pain by itself.

The truth is that most headaches happen in the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles that cover a person’s head and neck. Our Edmond chiropractors have seen patients who have headaches that may last less than an hour or some that have lasted for several days. Just like with any pain, the common “quick fix” for most Americans is to grab the bottle of Aspirin or other pain relief medication.

The problem with taking medication like that to cover up your problem is that the headaches will just come back and eventually one or two pills doesn’t do the trick anymore. Before you know it, you may be seeing yourself take an increased dosage of pain medication. Want to know a better way? Often times, patients feel instant relief just from getting a spinal adjustment from one of our Edmond chiropractors.
