The Pleasant Chiropractor FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
Can chiropractic care help with headaches?
It’s critical to have a chiropractic examination to determine the best course of action for reducing the frequency of these headaches and eliminating them completely.
Why am I getting Headaches after an Auto Accident?
Headaches and migraines are common symptoms of whiplash injuries or any other type of motor vehicle accident. When specific vertebrae in the neck are restricted and out of position as a result of an accident, headaches can develop. Neck muscles that have been strained can cause pain to radiate to the head. Headaches and migraines can be caused by any type of head injury or trauma. If you are suffering from headaches as a result of an auto accident, you should seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid the pain becoming permanent.
At The Pleasant Chiropractor, we specialize in treating whiplash injuries so you can return to your normal life.
Can Chiropractic Care Help with My Neck Pain?
The majority of patients do not want to simply take medication to mask their pain. Unfortunately, most doctors only provide that. We treat neck pain at The Pleasant Chiropractor with advanced techniques that focus on improving nervous and musculoskeletal system function. This is the most effective method for reducing pain and resuming normal function.
Why do I get neck pain following an auto accident?
After an auto accident, a proper evaluation is necessary to determine how you can feel better without the use of medication, which is designed to mask the pain rather than treat the cause of the pain. At The Pleasant Chiropractor, we specialize in assisting people who have been injured in an automobile accident.
Can Chiropractic Help with Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain is frequently accompanied by neck and back pain. When the shoulder hurts, the body may react negatively, such as with poor posture or limited range of motion, resulting in poor biomechanics elsewhere. As a result, it’s critical for a chiropractor to accurately diagnose the problem before beginning treatment. Shoulder problems are difficult to diagnose because they are often multifaceted and necessitate examining the entire shoulder girdle, not just the shoulder joint itself.
If you have any doubts about your diagnosis or the severity of your condition, seek medical advice before starting any treatment.
What if my symptoms did not begin immediately?
Can Chiropractic Care Help with Carpal Tunnel?
A misalignment in one or more joints in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist can cause a wrist problem. The same chiropractic techniques that work so well on the spine can be used on other joints throughout the body. Fixations and malfunctions affect nearly every joint, limiting function and range of motion. Trauma, microtraumas, vibrations, and repetitive motions are all common causes of pain.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common diagnosis for wrist pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness. Wrist pain is frequently caused by a problem in the neck. It’s critical to get a thorough chiropractic examination to determine the best course of action for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome pain relief.
Can Chiropractic Help with Elbow Discomfort?
Your chiropractor will assess your condition and correctly pinpoint the source of your discomfort. A chiropractor can also determine whether the issue is caused by bursitis, radial or ulnar nerve entrapment, or another condition.
Once I go to the Chiropractor, will I have to go forever?
Our goal at The Pleasant Chiropractor is to correct and stabilize your spinal condition so that you can feel better faster.
Can Chiropractic help with lower back pain?
Chiropractors are experts at treating low back pain and can pinpoint the source of your problem so you can get back to feeling better.
The majority of patients do not want to simply take medication to mask their pain. Regrettably, that is what the majority of doctors provide. At The Pleasant Chiropractor, we treat back pain using cutting-edge techniques that focus on restoring the nervous system and musculoskeletal system function. This is the most effective method for reducing pain and resuming normal function.
I was in an auto accident, could that have an impact on experiencing sciatica?
What is sciatica and can chiropractic care help alleviate some of the symptoms?
Don’t use medication to put a band-aid on your sciatic pain. By getting an evaluation and addressing the underlying cause of sciatica, you can eliminate it. Check to see if chiropractic care can help you right now.
Can chiropractic care help with dizziness and vertigo?
If vertigo is caused by upper-neck involvement, there is no drug or pill that can help. To see if chiropractic care can help with your vertigo or dizziness, seek professional advice.
Can chiropractic care help with hip pain?
Hip pain can be caused by changes in walking (gait) caused by a biomechanical injury such as an ankle sprain or knee strain. A change in your job, a change in the way you sit, a new sport or activity, or if you start driving for long periods of time on a regular basis can all cause your gait to change. The point is that anything that causes asymmetry or imbalance while moving can lead to painful hip problems. Hip pain is frequently linked to lower back pain.
Many of these issues can be addressed by a chiropractor. They will also provide appropriate progressive rehabilitative exercises, such as stretching and strengthening muscles.

Why does sciatica hurt worse at night? What makes sciatic nerve pain worse in bed?
