Your back and spinal column are extremely important to your overall health. They not only help you stand up straight, but they also contain the spinal cord, the main pathway of nerves that connects your brain to the rest of your body. If your spinal column is misaligned, it may exacerbate other conditions all over your body. Conversely, putting your spinal column back into alignment can contribute to the improvement of your overall health.
We at Vantage Integrative Health + Wellness offer many services that promote wellness, including chiropractic treatments, at our clinic in Calgary. Here are just a few of the conditions that chiropractic treatment may help relieve in conjunction with other medical treatments: Vertigo Vertigo is a condition that makes you feel chronically dizzy. Different kinds of vertigo can be caused by problems in the inner ear, neck or brain. Realigning the spinal column with chiropractic treatment has been known to help relieve the symptoms of some kinds of vertigo. Anxiety We’re constantly learning more about how stress and anxiety take a toll on the body. Symptoms can even include headaches and back pain. Getting chiropractic treatment, however, can help you maintain your overall health and wellbeing, alleviating physical and mental symptoms of anxiety. Kidney Stones Mineral and salt deposits that build up in your kidneys, also known as “stones,” can be an extremely painful experience—and that pain often manifests as back pain. With chiropractic treatment, however, some of that back pain can be relieved in some cases, making passing or otherwise treating your kidney stones much easier. Eczema The itchy, red skin caused by eczema is typically treated with a simple topical cream. For people who have more severe cases, however, it can be very painful. Many people report stress as a primary trigger for outbreaks of eczema. With the help of chiropractic treatments, these outbreaks can be more easily controlled. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) brings with it symptoms that include abdominal pain, diarrhea and excess gas. Like eczema, one important factor that contributes to attacks of IBS is stress. With a properly aligned spine, you won’t have the added burden of back pain that simply contributes to your overall stress level.
