Here Are a Few Ways Your Chiropractor Can Help

Colorado often flirts with the title of ‘most active’ state, and anyone who has gone to hike Mt. Bierstadt can confirm that there’s some credence to these surveys. Many times, an active lifestyle is considered to mean engaging in vigorous exercise at least three times per week, and that means that there’s a lot of activity all the time. With all that comes a whole host of injuries ranging from strains, joint pain, muscle pain, and more. So we buy braces, see doctors, and spend too much time shopping the supplement section of the grocery store but all to often we overlook the benefit of going to the chiropractor. Here’s a few injuries you may not realize that the chiropractor can help with.

Rotator Cuff Injuries


These injuries can occur during any athletic activity, and while you should still see your doctor, you may just want to supplement the care with chiropractic treatment. Stretching, strengthening, and mobilization could help expedite your recovery and get you back on the links.

Lower Back Strain


Proper adjustment can increase your range of motion, that helps reduce pain and help you heal faster.

Neck Pain


Like a lower back strain, a chiropractor can make adjustments and suggest exercises to help you recover.

Herniated Discs


Studies have shown that chiropractic care is an effective and safe way to manage disc problems. Often times, significant improvements can be felt within the first few months of treatment.

Hamstring Strain


Among the most common sports injuries, hamstring strain treatment can include adjustments to address tightness, the break up of scar tissue, and stretching to improve flexibility. The chiropractor can also check to see if patients have imbalances that could be the cause of recurring injury.
