Frequently Asked Questions About Chiropractic Care
What Causes Spinal Problems?
Chiropractic treatment helps those who experience pain, limited range of motion, stiffness, and muscle tension from the following:
slip / fall
repetitive motion injury
advancement of age
The doctors at our Hiram chiropractic office can treat back, neck, or shoulder pain related to poor posture, overuse injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, and other conditions.
There are many health conditions that can be caused when the spine becomes misaligned, because your muscles and joints become tight and stiff. This causes pain, and may limit your range of motion. A misaligned spine may also press on your nerves, triggering or increasing pain.
Chiropractic treatments are designed to realign the spine, ease stiffness, relieve pressure on nerves, decrease inflammation, and improve range of motion.
