We offer a customized approach through exams, x-rays, adjustments and therapy so your specific needs are met.
Chiropractic care involves the study, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of certain musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders and subluxations. Here at Healthy Habits Wellness Clinic, our Meridian chiropractor utilizes a number of traditional chiropractic techniques to help patients with healing and pain management, as well as prevent the onset of future disorders, injuries and symptoms.
Often, our patients who visit us for pain management and treatment for conditions causing other uncomfortable symptoms are suffering from an underlying injury. An injury can occur from falling, car accident injury, participating in a sport or any other event that causes physical impact. When an injury dislocated the discs that separate the vertebrae in the spine, they may place pressure on the sciatic nerve. This can produce a number of symptoms that are collaboratively known as sciatica. Typically, sciatica causes pain in the lower back, thighs, buttocks and hips.
Occasionally, the pain our patients are experiencing is not the result of an injury or poor posture, but instead is the result of a health condition known as fibromyalgia. The disease affects more than 12 million people in the U.S., most of whom are women. Our chiropractor may diagnose fibromyalgia if your neck or back pain presents itself as tender points throughout the body. Fibromyalgia pain is chronic and may be accompanied by extreme fatigue, depression or anxiety.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain and Neck Pain Management
Here at Healthy Habits Wellness Clinic, we use a whole body approach to treating injuries, sciatica and fibromyalgia. To start, we conduct a full consultation and examination to determine the underlying cause of symptoms. We then develop a customized treatment and prevention plan that usually involves regular manual adjustments of the spine and neck. After just a few sessions, our patients report feeling less neck and back pain, as well as fewer headaches and migraines.
In addition to chiropractic treatment, Dr. Lundahl may recommend implementing other forms of natural therapies to help with pain management and accelerate the healing process. For example, our office often recommends massage therapy to help loosen tight muscles that may be resistant to adjustments and release toxins that may cause muscle soreness.In the same way that you visit a dentist for twice a year check-ups and cleanings and you go to your physician for regular wellcare visits, chiropractic should be a part of a health and wellness plan. Even if you are experiencing few or no symptoms, regular visits to our Meridian chiropractor helps ensure your spine is healthy, which can prevent future injury and help boost your immune system.
By combining the care of a chiropractor with a healthy lifestyle, we believe you can live without pain, headaches and migraines. That is why we also offer nutritional coaching to help you live healthier, build stronger bones and maintain a healthy weight that promotes good posture.
