If you have been in an automobile accident, slipped and fell on the ice or lifted the groceries wrong, you understand what back pain feels like. When the muscles in your back have tensed up or have been strained, movement can be difficult. With shooting pains down the back of your legs, numbness or tingling in your hands, everything takes extra effort. A physician may prescribe pain pills or muscle relaxants, but if you have to drive, concentrate while you work on the computer, or need to take care of small children, those medications can make you sleepy, foggy and can slow down your reaction times. Now is the time you need to see a Chiropractor Colorado Springs. With the first adjustment, you may feel incredible relief.
Many insurance companies accept Chiropractic care, and will pay a portion of the visits. If you are going for your first consultation, an experienced chiropractor like Brian C. Helland D.C, will want your medical history before he treats you. After you have filled out the information sheet and given him your insurance information he will meet with you, to discuss your current condition. X-rays may be necessary to determine the course of treatment. Most Chiropractors will treat you fully dressed, and laying face first on an adjustment table, or on your side. Through a series of massage techniques and manipulation, he will have your spine back in alignment before you know it. It may be recommended that you take it easy after the treatment. A game of tennis or football would not be recommended.
If you are looking for an alternative method to heal your back, alleviate asthma symptoms or help your baby get over colic, without the use of medications, a chiropractic adjustment could be the answer you are looking for. At www.drbrianhelland.net, he explains some of the methods he uses to release the tension from your muscles and how he adjusts your back. If you suffer from migraines, chronic headaches, allergies and respiratory problems, an adjustment can lessen your symptoms. When your back is out of alignment, it puts stress on the surrounding muscles, which in turn put added strain on the organs the muscles support. As a result, that part of the body becomes weak and more vulnerable to illness and pain. Chiropractic care is a holistic method of healing that can relieve you of our pain, without medications.
