Parkway Foot & Back Clinic is a full-service pain management facility. We are here to help you live a healthy lifestyle.
A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine. Adjustment helps to relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body - so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.
Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe therapeutic exercise, provide nutritional counselling and recommend rehabilitation and athletic or other injury prevention strategies.
Chiropractors focus on the relationship between the nervous system and spine, and hold true the following beliefs:
• Biomechanical and structural derangement of the spine can affect the nervous system
• For many conditions, chiropractic treatment can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.
The treatment concept of chiropractic care is to re-establish normal spinal mobility, which in turn alleviates the irritation to the spinal nerve and/or re-establishes altered reflexes.
A pinched nerve can happen if there is excessive pressure applied to a nerve by surrounding bones, bones, cartilage, muscles or tendons. This pressure causes problems in the nerve function often causing pain, tingling, numbness or weakness.
In the case of the back, a herniated disk in your lower spine, for example, may put pressure on a nerve root, causing pain that radiates down the back of your leg. This is often referred to as sciatica.
With rest, chiropractic or physiotherapy, most people recover from a pinched nerve within a few days or weeks. In some cases, the herniated disc cause perpetual pain in the nerves and surgery could be an option. Before you consider surgery, less invasive options should be considered.
