Corrective Treatment

Spinal problems can make life miserable in more ways than one. Worse than just a pain in the neck, an unhealthy spine can greatly diminish your quality of life. Fortunately, corrective treatment helps restore function.

What Is Corrective Treatment?

Corrective Treatment is the segment of chiropractic therapy that addresses abnormalities in the spine. Because your spine is vital to how your body functions and operates, a healthy spine is imperative. Through gentle manipulation, exercises,  and more, our doctors can adjust and repair issues that negatively impact your spinal health. 

What Are the Symptoms of Spinal Problems?

Your spine is a column of disc-like bones called vertebrae that begin at the base of your skull and end at your pelvis. This column of bone supports the structure of your upper body. When something goes wrong within your spinal column, you may experience a range of painful symptoms, including:

  • Chronic Headaches
  • Backaches
  • Pain in the knees, neck, and hips
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Tingling in the feet and hands

Corrective treatment, when performed by The Accident and Injury Team, can alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by spinal problems. 

What Causes Issues With the Spine?

Many factors may contribute to spinal problems, including:

  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Medical conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis
  • Normal aging
  • Vitamin deficiency

When problems occur, you may experience degeneration of the spine. Degeneration happens in three phases that start out mild and progress to severe. Left untreated, spinal degeneration may result in serious declines in quality of life. The stages of degeneration are best described in this way:

Phase One

In phase one, a misalignment or malfunction occurs. Surprisingly, this phase may have no symptoms at all. You may not realize you have a problem at this point. 

Phase Two

Phase two involves the narrowing of your spinal column. Discs and vertebrae become compressed. At this point, you may begin to suffer aches, pains, and fatigue. During this phase, your posture may change and you may develop painful bone spurs. 

Phase Three

Phase three causes major life changes. As bone becomes deformed, you may experience mobility issues, immobilization of joints, and nerve atrophy. It may be difficult to stand, walk, or lift. 

When You Need Corrective Care

Our doctors are the best people to help you decide whether corrective treatment is right for you. This form of therapy not only works to alleviate the pain associated with spinal problems, but it attempts to correct the problem at the source. This gives you a greater range of motion, stronger posture, and a healthier spine.
