Optimal Spine Chiropractic, serving Aberdeen, MD, and the nearby region, offers treatment for a variety of chronic and acute conditions. We help manage or stop the pain and optimize function. Before scheduling an appointment at our office, it helps to know some of the injuries and conditions we help with. Keep in mind this list covers only some of what we treat.
Degenerative Disc Disease
The discs in your back gradually lose their elasticity and hydration. As discs go through these changes, you may suffer from a great deal of pain. But, a chiropractor from our practice can help ease your suffering by reducing pressure on the discs.
A herniated disc has lost its flexibility over time. An injury or other stress to the disc will cause a tear in its outer shell of it. Sometimes, you won't even know what triggered the shell to tear. As a result, the contents will seep out and place pressure on the nearby nerves and soft tissue.
Sciatica isn't a condition, per se. Instead, it's a word that describes one or more symptoms from either compression on the sciatic nerve or damage to it. It may include back pain, tingling, numbness, weakness, or burning.
Some people experience it from a bone spur. Others have it as a result of diabetes. On the other hand, pregnant women may have it either in the first trimester due to hormonal changes or the unborn baby pressing on the nerve in the final trimester.
Neuropathy is another issue we can manage. Some cases are only temporary and will resolve over time, but in the meantime, you can ease your symptoms. Other times, the condition is chronic. With this particular issue, you have damage to your nerves. You may then experience numbness, weakness, and tingling. One of the more common reasons for neuropathy is diabetes. In this case, you'll have chronic pain and other lasting symptoms that won't resolve, so the goal of treatment is reducing the symptoms.
Plantar Fasciitis and Other Feet Pain
Plantar fasciitis causes foot pain, and other feet problems can lead to pain as well. We can help stop it in either case.
Whiplash and Other Neck Pain
Whiplash is a sprain in the neck that can limit your range of motion and cause pain. We can decrease your initial symptoms and promote healing.
