Equilibrium Spinal Care Offers Chiropractic Services in Oakland, CA
A number of musculoskeletal conditions can cause pain and problems with normal mobility. Sometimes, these problems result from injuries or overuse. At other times, underlying disease may be at fault. Chiropractic care offers effective help for these conditions, with non-invasive, drug-free techniques. At Equilibrium Spinal Care in Oakland, CA, we offer a broad range of services to improve our patients’ comfort and function.
Chiropractic care uses manual adjustments as one of its most fundamental techniques to correct misalignments of the spine that can lead to dysfunctional movement. Your chiropractor’s careful manipulation of your spinal structures can help to re-align your spine for better movement throughout your body.
Soft Tissue Techniques
Another important part of chiropractic care is the manipulation of soft tissues. A number of techniques are used to break up scar tissue, relieve pain at trigger points, and to increase blood flow to sore and injured muscles. These techniques can be used to improve the condition of fibrous connective tissue in the body, as well as tendons, ligaments, and nerves.
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) has developed specific techniques for the upper spine that can effectively aid a number of spine-related problems. The technique involves slow, gentle manipulation of the initial bones of the upper spine. Careful adjustment of this area of the spine can be helpful in treating headaches, vertigo, dizziness, neuropathy, and other problems. The technique is used on a case-by-case basis, and your chiropractor will determine if the method is right for your needs.
Your chiropractor can also recommend specific exercises that will help to strengthen supporting muscles to help your body move more efficiently. When done regularly, these exercises can help to reduce painful symptoms and improve body movement for everyday tasks.
Lifestyle and Ergonomic Advice
Your chiropractor can also provide advice on how to arrange your work and home spaces to reduce the risk of re-injuring affected areas of your body. Learning how to prevent strain and overuse can help to avoid pain and problems with poor function.
