Chiropractic care may be famous for neck and back pain, but you will be surprised to find out chiropractors treat many other conditions. At Renton Center Chiropractic, we have invested in technology and training to ensure we provide chiropractic care treatments that suit our patients’ needs in Renton, WA, and the surrounding regions.
There are several causes of back pain. Injuries, including falls, slips, car accidents, and sports accidents, can injure structures in your back, causing pain. Medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and osteoporosis may compromise the structures in your back, causing pain. Poor posture, obesity, and smoking can also put you at risk of back pain.
Spinal adjustment is the first line of treatment for back pain. Chiropractic adjustments align your misaligned spinal joints, reducing pressure on your spinal nerves. Other treatments we use for back pain include massage therapy, rehabilitation exercises, and myofascial release.
Injuries are the most common cause of knee pain. Car accidents, awkward twists, and slips can injure your knees’ ligaments and tendons, resulting in pain and limited mobility. If you don’t have any apparent injury, the other common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis. Whatever the cause, we can help reduce pain and restore mobility. Knee manipulations, stretching exercises, and massage therapy can help with knee pain management.
We treat common work injuries using spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and stretching exercises. Even better, you can use your employer’s workers' comp insurance to seek chiropractic treatment from our clinic.
Auto Accident Injuries
If you have neck pain after a car accident, you may be suffering from whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head snaps back and forth, causing micro-tears in your neck’s tendons and ligaments. If untreated, whiplash results in many symptoms, including dizziness, headaches, and neck pain. Other common auto injuries we treat include:
- Herniated discs: Aging and injuries may cause your spinal discs to lose shape, resulting in pain, tingling, and numbness when nearby nerves are pinched.
- Sciatica: When the sciatic nerve is pinched, you may experience pain that travels from your back down to your legs.
- Pinched nerves: Compression or irritation of the nerves may cause pain and other discomforts.
