Conditions Treated With Chiropractic Care
Research shows chiropractic care in Grand Rapids MI and Lake Odessa MI is an effective, non-invasive solution for acute and chronic health conditions. At Simple Truth Chiropractic, Dr. Alexander Le Bon and Dr. Kristin Satterly, works with people of all ages who need help rediscovering their body's innate healing capability.
We frequently diagnose, treat, and prevent the following conditions using our holistic services.
Headaches and Migraines
Most of us experience headaches from time to time. But for some people, tension headaches or migraines (more intense headaches that often include additional symptoms like nausea and light sensitivity) become a frequent and disabling occurrence. Chiropractic care can reduce the frequency, duration, and intensity of headaches or migraines by addressing underlying triggers, improving neck and spinal alignment, and reducing inflammation and tension in the body.
Neck Pain and Back Pain
The majority of people will have an episode of neck pain or back pain at least once. This is likely because the major risk factors are so common, such as poor posture, physical trauma, stress, repetitive movement, sedentary activity, pregnancy, poor sleeping position, obesity, and more.
Sometimes, there is no clear cause of your neck or back pain—although even these "idiopathic" cases can respond well to chiropractic care. Our Grand Rapids chiropractic staff also diagnoses underlying conditions like muscle spasms or strains, joint misaligments or subluxations, ligament sprains, disc injury (e.g., disc bulge, disc herniation, or degenerative disc disease), osteoarthritis, and spinal stenosis. We will use specific treatments (like massage therapy) to naturally alleviate your neck or back pain, reduce stiffness and other symptoms, and prevent recurrence by addressing underlying risk factors.
Sciatica and Other Types of Nerve Impingement
Sciatica happens when one or both of the sciatic nerves in your lower back becomes compressed or pinched, usually by an injured or misaligned disc, narrowed joint, or bony cyst. This can cause pain and numbness that radiates down into one leg, or even weakness and altered reflexes in that leg or foot.
Impingement of spinal nerve roots where they exit the spinal cord can also occur in other places in the neck or back. Our chiropractors can alleviate pressure on irritated nerves through chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression for more effective relief.
Auto Accident Injury
Common types of auto accident injuries we treat include concussion, whiplash, and joint dislocations. We encourage you to see our Grand Rapids chiropractic team for relief from work injury and sports injury, as well. Chiropractic care can even enhance athletic performance naturally!
