Conditions Treated by Your Chiropractor in Coon Rapids
While most people are familiar with chiropractic care for the treatment of things like back and neck pain, there are a number of other issues that the best chiropractor in Coon Rapids can help with. These include:
Auto Accident & Personal Injuries
Many patients come to us following auto accidents. Chiropractic care can help improve mobility, relieve tension and lessen the pain that often accompanies car accidents. Accident victims often find that chiropractic care can help them heal more quickly and without the need for surgery or prescription medications.
Back pain is often caused by misalignment of the vertebrae, which puts pressure on the nerves in the spine and causes nerve pain, muscle spasms and other health issues. Back pain may also be related to disc issues, such as a bulging or herniated disc. Back pain treatment can include manual adjustments and spinal decompression to realign your vertebrae and relieve pressure on the nerves that are causing your back pain.
Neck Pain & Whiplash
The neck, or cervical spine, is quite complex and easily injured. Car accidents, sports accidents, work accidents or even sleeping the wrong way can cause neck pain. Through chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, massage and other treatments, we can return your neck to proper alignment, relieve tension and take pressure off of nerves. Chiropractic care at our office in Coon Rapids can help with all types of neck injuries, including whiplash.
A pinched nerve can be quite painful, causing numbness, tingling, loss of function, shooting pains and general discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments are excellent for relieving pressure on the nerves in your spine, which can stop the symptoms you are experiencing from your pinched nerve.
Chronic Headaches & Migraine Relief
A large majority of the headaches that most people suffer from are related to tension – usually tension in the back and/or neck as a result of joint stiffness of the neck. For tension headaches, we can offer chiropractic adjustments and massage to realign your spine, reduce pressure on nerves, relax muscle spasms and relieve the tension that is causing your chronic headaches.
For migraine relief, we find that there is often pinching of the top bone of the neck that is pinching on the brain stem which causes the nerves to the brain to inflame. In addition to adjustments to relieve this pressure, we can advise you on lifestyle changes and dietary changes that may help to lessen the severity and frequency of your migraines.
The nerves of the lower lumbar spine form the sciatic nerves which run down both legs. When misalignment of vertebrae or disc issues puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause significant discomfort, numbness, tingling, shooting pain and even loss of mobility. We use manual adjustments and spinal decompression to alleviate the pressure on your sciatic nerve so you can get some relief from your symptoms.
The discs in your spine are supposed to cushion your vertebrae, but they can be damaged through misaligned vertebrae putting undo pressure, injury, old age, degenerative diseases and other causes. Chiropractic care is very effective for the treatment of herniated discs, bulging discs and other “slipped disc” type issues. Through adjustments, spinal decompression, massage and other therapies we can encourage healing, remove pressure from the pinched nerves and lessen the symptoms you are experiencing from your disc issues.
With 1 in 12 people suffering from asthma, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, the need for effective asthma treatments is obvious. While many people manage the symptoms with inhalers and other prescriptions (which studies show cause more emergency visits due to adverse reactions than the actual asthma), chiropractic adjustments may offer another solution. By restoring normal function to your nerves through manual adjustments, we can help your lungs work as effectively as possible.
Carpal tunnel conditions respond very well to Chiropractic treatment. Carpal tunnel and other repetitive motion injuries can be painful and debilitating to most people. We can provide you with treatments that will reduce inflammation and pain, while also showing you healthier movements and improved ergonomics to avoid similar injuries in the future.
Sufferers of digestive issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s are often surprised to discover that chiropractic care can provide some relief. When the nerves to all these organs are irritated by bones out of place in the spinal column, these problems can arise. Through realignment of the spine, nutritional coaching and other treatments we can lessen inflammation and often ease your symptoms.
Tingling, numbness, shooting pains and other discomforts of the extremities (arm, hand, legs & feet) are often due to pinched nerves and spinal issues. We can help to realign not only your spine, but your extremities as well – lessening pressure on your nerves and alleviating your symptoms. Dr Ruf’s special expertise in adjusting extremities will help to restore normal movement and give you relief that you have never felt before.
Plantar Fasciitis & Other Foot Pain
Irritation and inflammation of the tendons and soft tissues in your feet can be extremely uncomfortable, making it difficult to walk and go about your day to day life. Through chiropractic adjustments of the arches of the feet, scanning and fitting you for orthotics for your shoes, and massage, we can reduce your inflammation, encourage healing and help you recover from your foot condition. Come take advantage of Dr Ruf’s specialized training in adjusting feet and feel relief like you have never felt before.
As the most flexible joint in the human body, the shoulder is prone to injury and soreness from overuse. The many tendons and ligaments holding the shoulder in place can be damaged through accident or repetitive motions, leading to discomfort, loss of mobility and even frozen shoulder. The treatment options we offer, including manual adjustments of the shoulder and spine, to free up the upper rib cage which will reduce postural tension in the shoulder and can help to lower inflammation and return range of motion.
We encourage all our patients to lead an active lifestyle for optimal health. Of course, if you are active, sometimes you will sustain injuries. Our team is experienced in the treatment of a variety of sports injuries having been athletes ourselves. We can help you get relief from pain, encourage faster healing and get you back to doing what you love to do as quickly as possible. We can also advise you on healthier body mechanics to avoid further injury.
