Dr. Davis Gives us 5 Reasons to See the Chiropractor (other than for back pain)
Most of us probably think of back pain when the chiropractor comes to mind but that doesn't always have to be the case. In fact, there's quite a few (important) reasons to get in and get adjusted for reasons other than back pain. Dr. Davis with Chiropractic First of Iowa gives us some insight on when you should be seen by a chiropractor.

This is a repetitive stress on a part of the body that causes inflammation and pain. Dr. Davis can check out the area causing trouble and the surrounding joints to get them realigned. By realigning the joint, the overuse injury can heal twice as fast than it would with just letting the inflammation go down by itself with rest and/or over the counter pain relief medicines.
2. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Over 3 million people are diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome each year. There's more and more people working from computers today, causing an increase in cases. But...just because it is quite common does not mean you should have to live with it. It can be very simple and easy to treat. Dr. Davis takes a look at three specific bones in the hand and can adjust them to relieve compression on the medial nerve.
3. Neck pain and headaches
Dr. Davis sees many patients for neck pain and headaches, often caused by tension. We tend to hold a lot of stress in our head and neck, causing tension headaches. Tension headaches can also trigger other types of headaches by tensing up surrounding muscles so it's important to be prompt when it comes to treating them.
4. Joint Pain
Joints can be....well, a pain. We have so many joints and there are so many kinds of joint pain that it can get overwhelming. Dr. Davis likes to keep it simple so you don't have to stay off your feet for long. Often, a simple manipulation of the joint and some rest allows the joint to heal on it's own twice as fast as not doing anything.
5. Debating spine surgery
Last, but certainly not least; If you're debating a spinal surgery, Dr. Davis always recommends receiving a second opinion. He is more than happy to sit down with anyone to discuss their particular case and come up with a plan of action for treatment that doesn't involve going under the knife.
So, as you can see, there are a multitude of reasons to see a chiropractor for issues other than back pain. Dr. Davis' goal is to find the root of the issue. When the root of problem is found, Dr. Davis can begin to help the whole body feel better so you can live a happier, healthier, fuller life with as little as possible medications, surgeries, and other medical interventions. If you're having any of the above symptoms or you're debating spine surgery, book an appointment today. Don't wait -- start on the track to feeling better, today.
