Headaches and Migraines
Headaches can be caused by a variety of issues. Tension headaches, for example, are often brought on by a combination of poor posture and stress. They can feel like a tight band around the head and lead to dull pain.
Migraines tend to feel much more severe and throbbing than "regular" headaches, and may be preceded by warning signals like vision changes and nausea.
Whiplash is often called an acceleration/deceleration injury. It happens when the neck is forced to snap like a whip. We usually see this in our patients who have experienced a car crash or a slip and fall. Symptoms include neck pain and stiffness, numbness, and tingling in the arm, headaches, jaw pain, ringing in the ears, and difficulty sleeping.
Low Back Pain
8 out of 10 people will have low back pain at least once. It's so common because the leading risk factors, like poor body mechanics and posture, accidents, excessive sitting, and being overweight, affect many of us.
Low back pain responds very well to chiropractic care. Our Buffalo chiropractic staff uses tests and medical history intakes to identify the underlying cause of your stiff and sore lower back. We often find issues like herniated discs, arthritis, joint subluxations or misalignments, and muscle strains.
Sciatica is a syndrome that can cause intense shooting pain in the buttocks, groin, and leg. Additional symptoms may include leg and foot numbness and leg weakness. It happens when something, usually a disc, narrowed joint, or bone cyst, compresses the sciatic nerve where it exits the spine in the lower back.
Auto Accident Injury, Work Injury, and Sports Injury
Many of the above conditions occur due to an auto accident, workplace injury, or athletic injury. Additional issues we see include shoulder dislocations, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and tendonitis. All can benefit from chiropractic treatment.
