What Can Chiropractors Treat
December 12, 2018

80% of American adults report experiencing lower back pain at some point in their lifetimes. Whether you’ve got a hurting back (or neck or shoulder or hand or foot), living with pain can be physically and emotionally debilitating.

But what can chiropractors treat when it comes to such pain conditions? Let’s get into it.

Back Pain

As mentioned, back pain is an incredibly common phenomenon. It can come suddenly (via an accident or injury) or can seemingly arrive out of nowhere. The symptoms can vary between shooting and stabbing pains to an inability to turn or twist.

Severe back pain can make it impossible for people to complete daily tasks, including chores, walking, and work.

What can chiropractors treat when it comes to back pain? First, they diagnose the injury. From there, they use non-invasive treatments by applying gentle spin pressure to reduce joint restrictions or misalignment issues.

This process helps to reduce the inflammation and ideally reduce the level of pain.


Were you in a severe car accident? Whiplash occurs when your neck jerks back and forth involuntarily very quickly.

When it happens, it bends your spine past its standard range of motion, and it can injure your cervical spine’s vertebrae. Thus, it can also impact the supporting ligaments and muscles within your neck.

Most whiplash incidents occur from car accidents, but they can also happen on roller coast rides or while playing contact sports.

A chiropractor can perform non-invasive adjustments with gentle pressure to improve the movement and neck range of motion.


They’re painful, they’re frustrating, and they can keep you in bed- with the lights off- for several days.

Migraines are intense headaches that can also include nausea and dizziness. The pain ranges from moderate to severe, but most people report migraines interfering with their quality of life.

Chiropractors can treat and reduce spinal misalignment and improve your nervous system function. With a customized treatment plan, you should expect a reduction in your migraines.

Nerve Damage

Pinched nerves can create inexplicable pain. They can also cause tingling, numbness, and weakness.

They happen when your nerve’s functioning becomes interfered, and they can occur anywhere on your body. Common causes include having injury, stress, poor posture or repetitive movements.

Chiropractors identify the source of your pinched nerve. They can then perform non-invasive adjustments to reduce pressure on the compressed nerve.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis refers to the inflammation on the bottom of the foot’s sole. It can be incredibly painful for walking and long periods of standing. It’s common in runners, people who are overweight, and individuals who wear poor-fitting shoes without arch support.

Chiropractors perform non-invasive treatment with minimal pressure to remove stress and release the tense ligaments.
