Corrective Chiropractic Care for Long-Term Pain and Injury Relief
Many cases of neck pain, back pain, headaches and other health problems stem from long-term poor posture. Even weeks and months of adopting a posture that overcompensates for an injury can wreak as much havoc on the body as the initial injury. San Diego chiropractor Dr. Herfindahl uses corrective chiropractic care techniques to help patients’ bodies re-learn correct posture, leading to natural, long-term relief.
San Diego Chiropractor Provides Corrective Treatment for Pain Relief
Corrective chiropractic care is a whole-patient treatment system our San Diego chiropractor uses to re-train the spine and its supporting soft tissues, from top to bottom. It is extremely effective for hunched or slouched spinal curvatures like “upper cross syndrome”; symptoms include tight, painful shoulders and back of the neck, as well as weak chest muscles.
Upper cross syndrome is extremely common. It can happen over years as a person hunches over their computer desk. It can also happen after a person suffers a case of whiplash and gradually adapts his or her posture to avoid feeling pain.
Corrective chiropractic care helps almost any injury, including sports injuries, car accident injuries and work injuries—particularly injuries that were never fully resolved.
How Does Corrective Chiropractic Care Work?
Our chiropractor gives you a thorough examination and investigates deeply into your health and injury history. He’ll ask about lifestyle factors that may also impact your posture. If you are a good candidate for corrective chiropractic care, then the collaborative process of healing begins:
- Chiropractic adjustments – Our chiropractor can gently realign the neck vertebrae to release pinched nerves causing the headaches, often leading to immediate relief while preventing future attacks too.
- Massage therapy – Improves circulation, reduces musculoskeletal tension and helps your body adapt to the corrective adjustments.
- Therapeutic exercise – We show you specific exercises you need to do regularly to improve your muscles’ ability to maintain correct posture.
- Lifestyle adjustments – Our chiropractor will show you how to adapt your workouts, work station, and home habits to help you prevent future pain.
If your condition indicates, Dr. Herfindahl may also recommend techniques such as spinal decompression (particularly for helping bulging and herniated discs) or cold laser therapy (very effective for soft tissue injuries and osteoarthritis).
