Most of the time, back injury can be easily linked to one single event – lifting something that’s too heavy, moving the wrong way, or sitting too long on an airplane.

One of the most common accident sites of herniated or bulging disks is, unsurprisingly, the gym.

If you’ve ever been in an auto accident you know that the whiplash is something that may be harder to deal with than expected.

Restorative Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care should be more than just spinal adjustments. Your chiropractor should be able to provide you with truthful, high-quality insight into your body’s mechanics and send you off with the tools to properly maintain your body’s movement, balance and strength. Powers Chiropractic Clinic does just that. By sharing our insight with our clients, we are able to create long-term relationships that let the client take the driver’s seat to their healing and experience the transformative changes with first-hand knowledge.

What Can A Chiropractor Treat?

While there is a host of benefits ascribed to regular visits to the chiropractor, the focus at Powers Chiropractic Clinic is to address the science-supported physiology and the musculoskeletal system.  We’re always happy to hear of benefits that are beyond what we intend to provide, but here are some areas we know we can help:

  • Spinal Misalignment
  • Muscle Tightness
  • Movement Patterns
  • Postural Dysfunction
  • Poor Exercise or Work Habits
  • Muscle Imbalances

Movement Patterns and Back Pain

The first step to improving your body’s functionality at any age, and in any physical shape, it to understand how it moves and just as importantly – how it rests.

At its core, biomechanics is how your body is structured and how it moves as a result of that structure. The way your feet are shaped, the level of inflexibility in your hamstrings, muscle imbalances – all of these things factor into how your body moves, and where in your body the force from movement ends up. For some people it’s their ankles, others it’s their knees and some people, it’s their back. Or it could be all of the above.

Just like everybody has biomechanics that are unique to them and their body, they also have an optimal way to move that’s unique to their body. The problem is, most people tend not to move in the way that’s best for their body, and end up injured.

Over time these faulty movement patterns build up, and when combined with the wrong kind of exercise, or other poor habits, can result in back pain becoming a daily problem of debilitating effect.

Whether you are pre or post injury, Powers Chiropractic Clinic can assess your body’s movement, and set it for success with a combination of corrective exercises, adjustments, and massage.


 

Herniated Disks

Ignoring the spinal cord and attached nerves, your spine is composed of two main parts – the stacked vertebrae and the malleable spinal disks that rest in between. A slipped disk, otherwise known as a herniated disk, is a painful condition where your spinal “disk” is ruptured, causing the inner fluid to leak onto nearby nerves.

The disks are ultimately what give your spine its strength as well as its flexibility to bend over, lean backward and twist. While the spine can handle a surprising amount of load under controlled conditions, it’s generally best to keep it straight (and let the muscles around it be flexible and strong).

Our chiropractic clinic can help those who may be experiencing the classic pre-cursors to disk herniation, or those who are recovering from it.
