The human spine is made up of small bony structures called vertebrae; soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and muscles; as well as the nervous system. The vertebrae protect the spinal cord, which transmits nerve impulses to the muscles and brain.
For many different reasons the nerves can become pinched, the muscles can become inflamed, or the vertebrae can become misaligned, which causes pain. This pain can become incapacitating, making it difficult to move.
A trained chiropractor can determine the source of your pain by doing a thorough examination of your spine. The chiropractor will be able to understand exactly how the pain impacts your life.
It may be necessary to do additional testing like an X-ray or MRI of your spine to look for abnormalities. The following is a list of common conditions chiropractors can help improve.
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Arthritis pain
- Facet joint syndrome
- Pinched nerves
- Work injuries
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) pain
Many different conditions can cause pain in our bodies that stem from a misalignment in the spine, abnormality, or injury to the spine. The chiropractors at Lynx Healthcare are highly trained and skilled in diagnosing your specific condition.
