Dizziness subsides with chiropractic

Dizziness subsides with chiropractic

 
dizziness and chiropracticA 2011 case study suggests that chiropractic adjustments may alleviate chronic dizziness associated with neck pain.

A 29 year old man had been suffering from cervicogenic dizziness for 10 years. His dizziness developed in his 20s after a lifetime of neck and back pain as a result of an auto accident he'd been in as child. The man had tried a slew of both medical and alternative treatments but nothing seemed to work. That's when he began receiving chiropractic adjustments as part of a case study on chiropractic treatment for dizziness.
The man immediately felt less dizzy after just one adjustment, and continued to improve from there.

After just 2 months of treatment, the young man had substantially less dizziness and pain, better neck range of motion, and an improved quality of life. Since there were no serious side effects, researchers concluded that chiropractic adjustments were a safe, effective treatment for this patient's pain.

Although this was just a case study, it verifies research from another study in which chiropractic care combined with other approaches reduced dizziness in 80% of patients.2

Why Chiropractic is the Best Solution for Sciatica Pain


Sciatica and chiropracticSciatica and chiropractic
Sciatica pain is often so debilitating that it forces people to miss work and other normal activities.  Of all patients with low-back pain, sciatica patients have the highest level of disability (1).  In fact, patients with sciatica are disabled for an average of 72 days according to Norwegian public-health records.
Fortunately, a recent study offers hope to sciatica patients: chiropractic care can speed the recovery from sciatica flare ups and allow patients to return to work sooner (2).

The study evaluated 44 Norwegian workers after they came to the hospital with severe sciatica pain. Most of those patients had been experiencing pain for three or more weeks prior to their hospital visit.
The hospital chiropractor examined each patient to evaluate his/her posture and gait, range of motion, and palpation of the lumbar spine.

The chiropractic then performed various joint adjustments to the spine and other limbs that had been injured through patients compensating for pain. Ice treatment was also used to relieve soft tissue soreness.Patients were treated daily in the hospital and later three times a week for the first two weeks. Some patients needed additional follow-up treatment but typically did not exceed 14 treatments.

In matter of 21 days, 91% of patients returned to work full-time. Two patients returned to work part time. Researchers concluded this study demonstrates the potent benefits of collaboration between chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons. Chiropractic care can put an end to your sciatica pain so you can begin living your life fully again.
