Do You Need Chiropractic Care?

Everyone thinks of a chiropractic doctor when they have back or neck pain, but not many people think of them when they are suffering from allergies, disc problems, headaches, or fibromyalgia. Our chiropractic team at Array Medical Center Surprise is here to help you recover quickly. By offering patients multiple options we can provide the highest quality care.

Unlike an antihistamine, chiropractic care gives the body strength to fight allergies. An allergy occurs when the body detects foreign substances and perceives them as harmful such as dust, pollen, animal dander, etc. Your immune system reacts to these foreign substances by causing sneezing, congestion, rashes, hives, and coughing with the goal to expel them from the body. In severe cases, an allergen can cause seizures or even anaphylactic shock. This occurs due to histamines created by the immune system to protect your body.

What Can Chiropractic Care Help Within Surprise?

So, what conditions can chiropractic care help? Well, your spine is what protects your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is how your body communicates between the brain and every system. If there is a vertebra that is misaligned, it may be impinging on a nerve. This is important because it is being found that the nervous system plays a key role in how your immune system functions. Therefore, if your nervous system is being compromised, your immune system may be compromised and malfunctioning. A chiropractor is a specially trained doctor that treats and protects the nervous system by relieving pressure off the nerves. By doing this, you are allowing your body to function at its max potential and not overreact to allergens, fight infections quicker as well as decrease the likelihood of contracting illnesses such as colds and cases of the flu.

There are marshmallow-like pads between your vertebrae called intervertebral discs. These discs house nerves inside a jelly-like solution, surrounded by cartilage. They are very important for numerous reasons. These discs proved movement in the spine. When these discs start to degenerate, a spine will become less mobile and may start to fuse together. Intervertebral discs are also creating space between the vertebrae. This is important because nerves pass through these spaces and if the space becomes compromised then the nerve may be pinched or killed off. They also act as shock absorbers. When movement occurs, the jelly solution gives the disc the ability to expand and compress. If a spine becomes misaligned, a disc can become herniated, bulged, slipped, or if it’s bad enough it might even rupture. A misalignment is not the only cause for these conditions. Age can cause the disc to become weak and dehydrate. Not only will these conditions put pressure on the nerves, but they will also cause pain.

If you are suffering from these conditions call Array Medical Center Surprise for a no obligation consultation. Surgery is expensive, risky, time consuming, and has side effects. The majority of people heal naturally through chiropractic adjustments, and you can too. Reduce your pain and improve your quality of life by giving us a call.

Automobile Accidents

Following an automobile accident, whiplash is the most common injury. After being struck by another object from the rear or the side, the neck will thrash back and forth quickly and violently. When this occurs, the muscles in the neck will become hyperextended and may be strained or torn. This kind of soft tissue injury will lead to stiffness and soreness in the neck and/or upper back. The quick snapping movements that occur during whiplash will also likely lead to structural damage. These misalignments can also create associated herniate or bulging discs. In severe cases, a disc may rupture or cause nerve damage.

Chiropractic is proven to help both soft tissue and structural injuries caused by whiplash. There is specific, low-force manual adjustments that we perform at Array Medical Center Surprise for those that suffer from whiplash and other injuries due to a car accident It’s very important to make sure that pressure is removed off the nerves and motion is restored. Call us today to begin your healing and put this accident behind you.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the joints gets worn down. The likelihood of developing osteoarthritis increases if you have suffered an injury in joints like the hips, knees, wrist, hands, ankles, feet, neck, or back. This condition can be very painful and make daily life a struggle. It also can have an effect on the rest of your body. This happens due to compensation. If a person has pain in one knee, then they are going to put extra weight on the opposite knee. This not only affects the knee you are putting more weight on, but it also affects your ankles, feet, hips, pelvis and low back. Pain killers can provide relief until it wears off and it’s time to take another pill. Chiropractic can help the pain by taking pressure off nerves and joints due to compensation. Chiropractic adjustments also help restore proper movement in joints in the affected and unaffected areas. This is important because at Array Medical Center Surprise we are concerned with treating your entire body.

The condition of joint dysfunction can be described as joints that become stiff and full movement is restricted. There are many different causes of this condition including, but not limited to, muscle imbalance, injury, or poor posture. Compensation is a common cause of additional pain, just like with arthritis. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is the most treated joint dysfunction. The sacroiliac joint is where the sacrum (tailbone) joins with the pelvis. The joint dysfunction can create pain in the low back and limit movement. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is often misdiagnosed for sciatica or a herniated disc. Call Array Medical Center Surprise today to be properly diagnosed. At Array Medical Center Surprise, we will perform a thorough exam and specific adjustments to restore movement and give you relief.

Neck and Back Pain

It is common to experience neck or back discomfort at some point in the day. Poor posture, a life of micro traumas, toxins, and much more will create subluxations within the spinal. These subluxations will lead to pain because of the compressed nerves and discs. If these aches and pains are left untreated, muscle spasms and increasing pain may occur. If left untreated for a long enough time, nerves can eventually die. This may lead to more serious consequences. At Array Medical Center Surprise, we are here to rid your body of these subluxations and relieve your pain.

Headaches

Headaches are considered to be a normal way of life for people. What people don’t know is that more than three headaches a year is not normal. Many factors that can lead to headaches, such as loud noises, stress, or hunger, but it may not be the underlying cause. The most common cause of headaches is muscular tension in the neck and shoulders. These tight muscles can cause stress on the surrounding vertebrae which can lead to pain and headaches. Studies have found that 85% of all headaches can be traced back to the neck. A headache that originates from the neck is known as a cervicogenic headache. A person that experiences cervicogenic headaches is likely to feel throbbing, aching pain at the base of the head. The pain usually radiates into the forehead and temples with pain behind the eyes. A combination of massage and chiropractic adjustments can relieve muscular tightness and restore structure to the neck. Regular chiropractic care can relieve and prevent headaches. Come to Array Medical Center Surprise and just ask our patients!

Sciatica

One of the most common conditions suffered by middle age to elderly citizens is known as sciatica. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs through the sacrum (tailbone) and down the back of the legs. Sciatica can be caused by a misalignment or to a muscular problem. If a person has a disc issue or experiences muscles spasms in the low back, their pain may be worse due to the increased pressure. Many people believe that their hip(s) may be the cause of this pain because of where the pain originates. The pain in the glute region is the sacroiliac joint, where the sacrum meets the pelvis. Those suffering from sciatica experience shooting, sharp, burning pains down the back of their leg. It is not very common to experience this pain in both legs simultaneously. At Array Medical Center Surprise, we will properly treat this problem without surgery. We will also resolve the issue rather than mask the pain with medication.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a very common condition, especially for people that use computers a significant amount. This occurs due to repetitive movements combined with poor posture. This combination of physical stress creates stress along with wear and tear. All nerves start in the spine, including the nerves that run into your fingertips. Chiropractic adjustments and proper posture can help relieve the stress and pressure on your nerves and joints.

Fibromyalgia

,Fibromyalgia is defined as chronic, widespread pain and affects almost 6 million Americans. Today there is not a lot of knowledge as to what causes it, but the symptoms include pain throughout the body, especially the joints. People suffering from fibromyalgia describe the pain as mild or severe burning, aching, sharp, shooting, and radiating. Because of this widespread chronic pain, it is common for the condition to bring on headaches, depression, and/or anxiety. Today there is not a known cure, but research is showing that chiropractic adjustments have provided relief for those suffering from fibromyalgia. At Array Medical Center Surprise, we perform a thorough exam and provide care and strength to the entire body by relieving stress on the nervous system.

Pinched Nerves

Pinched nerves are the culprit behind many different conditions from headaches to heart attacks, from infertility to widespread pain. This happens because there are structural misalignments that compress the nerves that extend off the spinal cord. This compression not only affects the direct area, but it can extend further than thought. A misalignment in the pelvis can create migraines. That is why at Array Medical Center Surprise we perform a full body examination. We do not do just the minimum when your health is in our hands.
