Chiropractic care is one of the most effective ways to treat back pain, neck pain, and other issues. When you have a problem with your spine or nervous system, it causes all sorts of problems in your body. Even if you don't have any pain yet, seeing a chiropractor for regular check-ups prevents future problems down the road. Here are some common signs that indicate it's time for an adjustment:

Frequent Headaches

If you’re experiencing frequent headaches, it’s probably a sign that something is out of alignment in your body. Chiropractors are trained to identify and correct the underlying causes of chronic pain and discomfort by removing pressure on nerves caused by misalignment.

Chiropractic treatment helps relieve tension in the neck, back, shoulders, and other areas of the body that contribute to headaches. By restoring proper spinal positioning through gentle adjustments over time, patients may experience less frequent or even no headache symptoms at all!

Persistent Allergies

Allergies are pesky and persistent, and they are caused by a number of things. That’s why it’s important to get regular chiropractic care.

Chiropractors do this by releasing pressure on the nervous system that has accumulated over time because of poor posture, stress, or even a previous accident. This leads to inflammation in the body which causes swelling in the sinuses and mucous membranes of the nose (and elsewhere). This swelling makes it difficult for airways to stay open meaning they become inflamed too! Chiropractic adjustments help reduce these imbalances so you breathe easier.

Frequent Digestive Issues

If your digestive system is feeling off, this is a sign of a serious problem. If you're experiencing bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea on a regular basis, it may be time to visit a chiropractor.

Most people don't realize that their gut is actually the largest endocrine organ in the body and impacts every aspect of their health from their mood to their energy levels. When you're constantly experiencing digestive issues and other symptoms like headaches or fatigue, it could actually be some deeper problems with your gut health.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a condition that lasts longer than three months. It is caused by an injury or disease, but it's also common for people to experience chronic pain without any underlying cause. Whether you're dealing with long-term discomfort or acute symptoms that won't go away, chronic pain has a negative impact on your mental health and quality of life.

Chiropractic care helps to relieve chronic pain in many cases. Chiropractic adjustments restore the normal function of joints and the nervous system, reducing your level of discomfort and allowing you to be more active overall. If you think you may need regular chiropractic care for relief from debilitating symptoms like back pain or migraines, talk to your doctor about visiting a chiropractor in your area today!

Muscle and Joint Pains

If you are experiencing muscle and joint pains, it is probably from overuse, which happens when an activity is repeated too much. This happens in the office or at home while working on the computer or simply doing your daily routine. 

Another possible cause is related to sleeping positions that aren't ideal for your body type. You should also consider whether your environment has changed recently; did something happen recently that caused such issues? For example: moving from one house/apartment into another one with different temperatures might make existing aches worse if they weren't noticed until then! Visiting a chiropractor regularly can help relieve this type of pain.

Healing from a Recent Accident 

If you have recently been injured in an accident, it is important to seek treatment from a professional chiropractor. The healing process is slow and painful, but having the chiropractic care that you need helps speed up your recovery time.

Numbness and Tingling in your Arms or Legs

A common cause of numbness and tingling in the arms or legs is carpal tunnel syndrome, a nerve disorder caused by pressure on the median nerve as it passes through the wrist.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is also caused by diabetes or thyroid disease. If you don't have any of these conditions and are experiencing symptoms like numbness or tingling, it's worth talking to your doctor about getting checked out by a chiropractor. 

Numbness in your extremities indicates a more serious issue like a pinched nerve or muscular dystrophy. It’s also a sign that you've experienced an injury to those areas (even something seemingly minor) so talk to us about what may have happened recently. This will assist our team at Marshall Chiropractic to develop the right treatment for you!

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to visit a chiropractor. While there are many other health conditions that may cause similar signs and symptoms, it is best to get checked out by a doctor and visit a chiropractor. A trained chiropractor will be able to determine whether or not your condition requires medical attention or is treated through gentle adjustments.
