Are you suffering from the sharp, shooting leg pain of sciatica?

Put down the Tylenol! A sciatica chiropractor can provide lasting relief.

 

Sciatica is—quite literally—a pain in the butt.

But rather than visiting your primary care physician (or, worse yet, suffering through it), seeking chiropractic treatment can not only alleviate your symptoms but also treat the underlying cause of your sciatica.

Unlike traditional medicine, chiropractic treatments encourage the body to heal itself. Chiropractors often use a combination of chiropractic adjustments and medical massage to effectively heal most sciatica patients without the use of drugs or surgery.

Chiropractors can be essential for relieving pain.

But how often should you get a chiropractic adjustment to get the most out of their services?

 

Millions of Americans receive chiropractic care in this country each year. This includes everything from neck adjustments to medical massages. Even if you’ve never been to see a chiropractor before, you probably have at least a concept of what to expect. But even those receiving treatment might be asking how often should you get a chiropractic adjustment?

Before we can begin to answer that question, we have to cover the basics.

Curious about chiropractic? You’re probably wondering…

“Does Medicare cover chiropractic care? Do chiropractors take insurance?”

 

If you suffer from back pain, achy joints, sciatica, or another painful condition, you’re not alone. Chiropractors treat nearly 27 million patients a year. With the prevalence of joint-related issues, you might be asking yourself, “Does my insurance cover chiropractic treatment?

But—as with most questions involving doctors and insurance plans—the answer isn’t always cut-and-dry.

Fortunately, there are many occasions when your insurance does offer coverage for chiropractic services. Let’s dig a little deeper to see when you may or may not be covered.

Holistic care is a term that most people have heard of but probably don’t have a great understanding of what exactly it is. So what is holistic care?

Many people think of holistic care as a type of pseudo-medicine. Maybe even a rejection of modern medicine.

Holistic care is neither of those things.

At its core, holistic care is about treating all aspects of the individual, not just the parts that are hurting or injured. Those who practice holistic care believe that only by focusing on and healing all aspects of an individual—their body, mind, and soul—can you truly be happy and healthy.

How does a holistic approach work in the practice of chiropractic care? Let’s take a look.

“My spine is the reason my hand hurts?”

Learn more about referred pain and how chiropractic adjustments can help.

 

People are often surprised when they hear that chiropractors can treat more than just back pain. And while there is a lot more to adjustments than just “cracking backs,” chiropractors do put a lot of focus into the spine.

Your child shouldn’t have the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Here are some tips for selecting and wearing a kid’s backpack to prevent injury.

 

“Did you remember your math book? And your science book? What about your literature book? Your notebook? What about your pencils?”

If you’re a parent, these questions probably feature prominently in your morning routine before your child leaves for school.

All of those books and school supplies might be necessary for them to get through their day, but have you ever stopped to think about what all that weight could be doing to your child’s back?
