4 Conditions That Chiropractic Can Effectively Address

Dr. Kelch and our team want to help you put pain in your past and experience an improvement in function and health in your present and future.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common conditions we treat and how our approach can bring hope and relief to our patients.

Relieving Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a common condition many experience at some point in their lives. Our approach to treating low back pain focuses on relieving the pressure on the nerve causing the pain. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we also provide recommendations for lifestyle changes and homework exercises to complement the treatment.

We believe in empowering our patients to participate in their recovery actively. Initially, when the pain is acute, we advise patients to use ice and heat therapy and gradually introduce stretching exercises later in their care. By providing them with home stretches and strengthening exercises, we work together as a team, ensuring that patients are involved in their own healing process.

Every patient is unique, and we understand that different techniques may be required to address their specific needs and comfort levels. We utilize various techniques tailored to each patient, including tools such as the Arthrostim, a vibration tool that aids in adjustments, and Thompson drop tables to reduce force. We also employ the Diversified Technique based on the patient’s requirements, always prioritizing their comfort throughout the process.

Improving Digestive Functionality Through Chiropractic Care

Many patients visit us with digestive issues, often unaware of the connection between their gut health and the spine.

Patients may experience chronic constipation or diarrhea without any back pain. By relieving pressure on the nerves that control the gut through chiropractic adjustments, we can improve the functionality of the organs and tissues in that area.

Also, posture and spinal alignment are crucial to maintaining a healthy digestive system. Our sedentary lifestyles and poor posture can lead to a reduced lumbar curve, which puts pressure on the nerves affecting the gut. Regular movement, such as walking, helps stimulate peristalsis (food movement through the digestive system).

Addressing Headaches: Restoring Proper Curvature

The combination of mental stress and poor posture from sitting in front of screens for extended periods can contribute to tension headaches and migraines. One of our chiropractic care objectives is restoring proper lower back and neck curvature.

With the prevalence of technology use, we often see misalignments in the vertebrae, particularly in the C1 and C2 areas at the base of the skull. By utilizing various techniques such as manual adjustments, adjustment tables, or tools like the Arthrostim, we can effectively target these problem areas.

Unlike medications that may only mask symptoms, chiropractic care offers a drug-free and natural approach to managing chronic headaches. We aim to address the underlying issues causing the headaches, significantly improving our patients’ conditions by eliminating misalignments and working with soft tissues.

Treating Sciatica: Targeting Specific Nerves

Sciatica is characterized by pain, numbness, and tingling. At Absolute Wellness, we specialize in identifying and targeting the specific nerves responsible for these issues, whether it’s in the lower back (L2, L3, L4, L5) or the pelvis.

Early sciatica signs often include generalized lower back pain, not just pain radiating down the leg. It’s important to pay attention to any tingling sensations or muscle weakness to seek timely treatment.

Our clinic utilizes a range of chiropractic techniques to treat sciatica, including low back adjustments and the use of tools like drop tables and decompression therapy if necessary. We also recommend specific exercises and stretches that complement chiropractic treatment for sciatica, enhancing effectiveness. These include hamstring stretches, lower back rotational movements, and the piriformis stretch, which targets the muscles in the buttocks that can contribute to sciatic nerve compression.
