Chiropractic care and pain relief are synonymous. Through chiropractic adjustment and other similar techniques, our practitioner can provide pain relief and ease other unpleasant musculoskeletal symptoms. At Athena Chiropractic, we have provided residents of Wilmington, DE, with natural and effective chiropractic care for many years.
Types of Services We Provide
One of the most common services we provide is chiropractic adjustments. We utilize this treatment for several acute and chronic conditions. During the adjustment, you may lie on a table face down. Our chiropractor then manually manipulates the vertebrae in the spine. This optimizes your nervous system function, which can improve your mobility and flexion while reducing pain. It's beneficial for both neck and back relief. Spinal adjustments may even ease your headache pain or reduce the number of headaches you have.
Cold laser therapy works for both healing and pain relief. It's particularly beneficial to people who have swelling and experience unpleasant muscle spasms. It speeds up the recovery process while reducing pain.
Our chiropractor can advise you on proper nutrition. Your diet affects a variety of aspects of your health. Poor eating habits can cause you to lack energy. If you're overweight, you're placing excessive pressure on your lower back when you sit down. This can not only exasperate pain but can lead to it as well. Walking with excess weight puts pressure on your weight-bearing joints, particularly your knees. It doesn't help that knee problems can cause a domino effect in your musculoskeletal system.
Proper nutrition is also required for healing. Your body needs minerals and vitamins to encourage your soft tissue to repair itself after an injury. Certain nutrients are also required for musculoskeletal and nervous system function. For instance, B-complex vitamins are needed for nervous system function. When you're not receiving adequate nutrition, it's difficult for your body to function properly.
What Chiropractic Care Treats
You may visit our chiropractor after you sustain an injury from a car accident, sports injury, or another personal injury. We help patients who experience issues from repetitive stress on their joints and soft tissue, such as that from playing sports or just daily life.
