Is the COVID-19 pandemic a (literal) pain in the neck? Don’t go to the hospital!

Here’s three reasons why chiropractors have been deemed an essential business.

Whether you’ve been treating your pain with medications or simply “powering through” it, you’re probably hesitant to do anything about it now.

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are at full capacity with patients who have been infected with COVID-19 and you’re trying to stay at home to help flatten the curve. You’d hate to increase the burden of doctors and nurses on the front lines or, worse yet, contract the disease yourself.

But musculoskeletal pain doesn’t schedule itself with global pandemics in mind. So what can you do about it?

The answer is simple: visit a chiropractor!

They may be small, but trigger points can cause a lot of pain.

Find out why and how trigger point massage can provide lasting relief.

You’re rubbing a sore muscle and suddenly flinch in pain. Ouch! Why does that one tiny spot hurt so much?

Chances are, you’ve developed a trigger point.

Trigger points and other myofascial pains are benign, but the pain they cause can be intense and debilitating. Luckily, trigger point massage is a simple, non-invasive way to release those tight spots and alleviate your pain. Let’s take a closer look at how trigger point massage works and what you can do to prevent trigger points from forming.

But first, let’s answer your most burning question, “What is a trigger point?”

Pain is pain, right? Does it matter who treats it?

Let’s compare a chiropractor vs. physical therapist to help you decide which is best for you.

 

That car accident did a number on your body. Sore back, whiplash, herniated discs…you’re in a lot of pain. So what can you do about it?

When it comes to healing from a car accident or sports injury, you have a few options. You can see a traditional doctor for a prescription (and risk any number of unpleasant side effects) or see a physical therapist.

Or would a chiropractor be better?

Is there really a difference? When it comes down to chiropractor vs. physical therapist, which one is the best choice to help you recover from your injuries?



Whiplash is a common car accident injury, but the pain can feel far from ordinary.

Get real, lasting relief with medical massage for whiplash and other accident injuries.

 

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries resulting from car accidents.

While your seat belt keeps your torso relatively stationary during an accident, your head and neck are not so protected. The sudden stop as you collide with another object “whips” your head and neck back and forth, stretching those muscles, tendons, and ligaments beyond what they are used to.

While the injury itself might be localized to the neck area, the pain of whiplash and other car accident injuries is certainly not confined to a single location. This can make it difficult to diagnose (and therefore, properly treat) your car accident injuries with traditional medicine.

That ache in your back is not going away, and it’s time to let a professional have at it. Time to call a masseuse…or is it “massage therapist”? Is there even a difference?

If you’ve been injured in a car accident or while playing sports, you want to find the best treatment available to address your underlying condition and provide real healing, not just “symptom relief.”

While massage can be a helpful tool in your recovery, it’s important to find the right kind of massage performed by the right person.

In this article, we’ll look at the difference between a masseuse vs. massage therapist as well as the many types of massages available to you.

We’ve all seen the havoc that a car accident can wreak on a vehicle. From chipped paint to complete destruction, car accidents can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. But what happens in a car accident…to your body?

You only get one body to use for your entire lifetime. In most cases, your body is able to heal itself when it gets injured. But for more serious injuries (like those sustained during a car accident), you might be left with a pain that you just can’t “walk off.”

This is because car accidents are unlike any other kind of accident you might experience. Here’s what happens in a car accident to your body and how you can start getting back to normal.

Are you suffering from the sharp, shooting leg pain of sciatica? Chiropractic treatment can help.

Put down the Tylenol! Here’s why you should see a chiropractor for sciatica 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.
