Conditions Treated With Our Ann Arbor Chiropractor Team
Chiropractic care has been around for nearly 130 years. Thanks to recent advancements in holistic medicine and non-invasive modalities, our Ann Arbor chiropractor team at First Choice Chiropractic can naturally treat a wide range of conditions. Whether you're dealing with acute or chronic pain, we encourage you to schedule a consultation and see how chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and other pain relief services can help.
Your spinal discs naturally have limited blood supply, so they are subject to wear and tear with age, repetitive movement, awkward posture, heavy lifting, or trauma. Common disc injuries include herniated discs (where a disc tears and its inner core leaks out), bulging discs (the disc protrudes out of place), and degenerative disc disease.
Among our other therapies, non-invasive spinal decompression can help realign and heal injured discs.
Chronic pain (lasting longer than 3 months) affects millions of Americans. Through comprehensive physical examinations, including postural screens and diagnostic imaging, we can diagnose your underlying cause of pain and help you find lasting relief. Common chronic pain conditions include:
- Osteoarthritis: joint inflammation and loss of inner joint cartilage
- Fibromyalgia: heightened sensations of widespread pain
- Spinal stenosis: narrowing of bony canals in the spine
- Sciatica: compression of the sciatic nerve, causing leg pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness
Sports Injury, Work Injury, or Personal Injury
Most people spend a lot of their time at work or participating in sports and leisure activities. Common risk factors for injuries on the job, on the athletic field, in the gym, or even out and about in the community include repetitive movement, frequent sitting, heavy lifting, poor body mechanics, improper hydration, nutrition, rest, slips, falls, and other types of accidents.
These factors often contribute to injuries such as tendonitis, muscle strains, ligament sprains, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, joint dislocations, and golfer's elbow/tennis elbow. Corrective exercises, chiropractic adjustments, and pulsed electro-magnetic field therapy (PEMF) can accelerate tissue healing, reduce inflammation, provide pain relief, minimize scarring, and enhance tissue strength and endurance.
Whiplash and Other Types of Auto Accident Injury
Auto accidents occur thousands of times every day. Whiplash and joint subluxations are among the common after-effects of an accident. Seeking treatment ASAP following a car crash is essential for avoiding long-term complications.
