Chiropractic Treatment in York, PA
Chiropractic treatment is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach. Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the patient is even aware they exist.
Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain
Lower Back Pain is the most common ailment we treat. If you suffer from lower back pain, you are not alone. Nearly everyone at some point has experienced back pain that interferes with work, routine daily activities, or recreation. Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on lower back pain, the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work. Back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the United States — only headaches are more common.
85% – 90% of those seeking back pain relief through chiropractic find this mode of therapy very effective and reasonable in cost.
Muscle spasms, inflammation, abnormal joint motion, nerve interference and swelling are all effectively relieved with chiropractic care. Disc injuries are one of the more severe causes of back pain, and 85% of those injuries can be treated without surgery. We use state-of-the-art chiropractic treatment methods to ensure you regain your health and function in as little time as possible.
Spinal traction for decompression of the lower back is used in conjunction with physiotherapy, laser therapy and gentle adjustment treatment. Exercise and strengthening are important for full recoveries in most cases. We will help you regain your health.
Chiropractic Treatment for Neck Pain & Headaches
Neck pain and headaches are the second most common reasons patients seek care at our office. Neck pain is just that, – a pain in the neck. Pain can be localized to the cervical spine or may radiate down one or both arms (radiculopathy). All age groups are at risk of developing neck pain. People who sit in one location staring at computer screens for long periods of time may be at an increased risk. Multiple studies have found that workers in sedentary, computer-intensive jobs have a higher incidence of neck pain compared with many other jobs. About 10% of the population has an episode of neck pain each year, and occurs slightly more frequently in women than men. Given that 60% of the population have occupations that require sitting, it is essential that we make an effort to get up and move to offset the sitting.
“Sitting is to the spine what sugar is to the teeth.” This is not good. To express health to our greatest potential, we need to move. Chiropractic treatment procedures are geared to reduce pain and restore motion to the spinal joints and surrounding soft tissues. Each and every member of our team wants your experience at Harcourt Chiropractic Office to be positive. Don’t suffer with pain hoping that, “Maybe it will go away”.
Chiropractic Treatment for Automotive Accidents
Automobile accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury claims. On average, 3 million people are injured each year in automobile accidents at a cost of over 230 billion dollars. Initially, an auto accident may seem to cause minor injuries. Some symptoms may not appear until weeks or months after the accident. Injuries that seemed minor can become progressively more serious over time, causing lifelong pain and disability. We have had cases where patients have suffered for months or years before seeking care for their neck and back pain. It doesn’t have to be this way. Most of these patients recover fully with proper chiropractic treatment. Some of the most common types of injuries related to a motor vehicle accident are:
- Head Trauma
- Ligament Damage
- Back Pain
- Emotional Trauma
- Broken Bones
- Swelling and Inflammation
Chiropractic treatment provides a variety of services with one goal in mind, to help you get the RECOVERY YOU DESERVE. We are available 24 Hours a day/7 Days a week for emergency Same-Day, Appointments, including Saturdays and Sundays.
