Conditions Treated by Our Chiropractors in Calgary
When you are experiencing pain and other unpleasant symptoms, seek the medical expertise of a chiropractor. Chiropractic care uses natural techniques that target the root of the problem instead of merely masking the symptoms as pain medications do. At Douglasdale Family Chiropractic in Calgary, we offer chiropractic care, acupuncture, and other natural techniques to address a variety of health issues.
Sciatica is a group of symptoms that affect your lower back, hips, buttocks, and your legs. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body and connects these areas of the body. When you damage or compress this nerve, you may experience symptoms like numbness, weakness, tingling, or burning that extends throughout this entire area or just through a portion.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is a condition that occurs when one or more of the discs in your spine wear down over time. You might experience pain that worsens when you sit down, especially for prolonged periods. The pain could also worsen when you bend or twist. With degenerative disc disease, numbness and tingling sensations in your extremities are possible as well.
Arthritis can affect any joint in your body, depending on the type. Arthritis causes a great deal of pain. Sometimes, the pain is worse with certain types of arthritis when you wake up. Over time, arthritis can limit your range of motion in that particular joint.
Spinal stenosis occurs when your spine narrows. As it does so, it places pressure on the nerves. With this condition, you may experience numbness, weakness, or tingling in various parts of your spine.
Whiplash occurs when you damage the nerves or soft tissue in your neck. It happens when a force propels your head and neck in one direction and then suddenly in another. It can cause a limited range of motion in your neck as well as significant amounts of pain. Some people experience neurological symptoms as well, such as mood changes and sleep pattern disruptions.
Disc Herniation or Bulging Discs
A disc herniation occurs when you have a tear in a spinal disc and the contents leak out. A bulging disc, on the other hand, occurs when the contents of the disc push up against the weak wall of a disc but do not leak out of the disc.
Sprains or Strains
Besides chronic conditions, our chiropractic care also includes treatment for acute conditions like sprains and strains. A sprain occurs when you overextend the portion of soft tissue that connects your bones or cartilage. A strain occurs when you overstretch or tear a muscle or tendons.
