Benefits of Going to a Chiropractor
September 21, 2023

There are a multitude of benefits in seeing a Chiropractor including some of the most common reasons as listed below.

  1. Chiropractors treat neck pain.

In today’s fast paced world, stress is a major health issue and long hours of sitting at the computer and ‘relaxing’ on the couch strain the neck and can produce ‘tension’ in the shoulders. At Cannington Chiro we can treat neck pain through various techniques that are safe, effective and can give instant relief.

  1. Chiropractors can help you save money and protect your health. Now days we don’t think twice about popping a tablet to get some short term pain relief – even though we know the side effects in the long term can be life threatening and expensive. Cannington Chiro can help, in most cases provide pain relief without the need for as much medication – helping avoid the possibility of developing a dependency on opioid pain relievers, stomach ulcers and increased blood pressure problems which may be associated with the family of medications called ‘NSAIDS’ which includes ibuprofen, celebrex and voltaren.
  2. Chiropractic may help with a Reduction of Osteoarthritis Symptoms

Arthritic pain results in part by the degeneration of joint cartilage resulting in the bones rubbing ‘bone on bone’ together. Some types of chiropractic treatment may help relieve ‘stuck’ joints and help align your joints helping reduce your pain. Cannington Chiro can also offer a choice regarding management of your pain and stress with a scientific, evidence-based approach.

  1. Chiropractors and Headaches

Have you ever had pain at the base of your skull, where the head and neck meet. This pain is medically known as sub occipital neuralgia and headaches that start at the base of the skull and tend to radiate to the side of the head are known as cervicogenic headaches. Cannington Chiropractic see patients with these types of headaches daily and it is highly likely we can help you suffer less headaches, less often and of less severity.

  1. Chiropractors and your Posture

Cannington Chiropractic through spinal mobilization techniques together with postural advice and a stretching and exercise program can assist in improving poor posture. During examination and screening we can access how we can help you and whether a referral to other health practitioners is advised.

  1. Eases Back pain

In today’s world more and more people are looking for a natural, drug free answer for the treatment of low back pain.

Chiropractic treatment has become increasingly popular and in the majority of cases may be an excellent alternative to more invasive options like surgery or injections for treating short-term or chronic back pain, being recognised for being safe, effective and evidence based.
