Chiropractic Care in Crestwood
Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Centers provide holistic treatment options for individuals with back and neck pain, headaches, sports injuries and musculoskeletal car accident injuries.
Chiropractic care is the foundation of our treatment options. It encompasses spinal and extremity joint adjustments and is used to help heal injuries and prevent future injuries. The adjustments ensure your vertebrae and extremity joints are properly aligned. This removes the stress from the surrounding ligaments and soft tissues, improves local circulation and reduces inflammation, which helps reduce recovery times and pain.
Massage therapy can help decrease recovery times, especially when it is combined with chiropractic care, corrective exercises and lifestyle adjustments. Massage helps decrease muscle and joint soreness, and it helps to increase flexibility and range of motion. It has also been known to lower the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is used to increase the spaces between the discs. This helps heal herniated and bulging discs and reduces the pain associated with pinched or compressed nerves. It works by using mechanical traction to gently stretch certain sections of your spine. Once the spaces are increased, your herniated or bulging discs will slowly start to retract and refill with fluid.
Corrective exercises are targeted exercises that are designed to strengthen injured or weak muscles. When you come into our office for a corrective exercise session, you will be instructed on how to perform the exercises and taken through a routine. We will also provide you with instruction sheets so that you can exercise at home. By performing the exercises both in our office and at home, we are giving you the best chance of making a speedy recovery.
Lifestyle & Nutrition
Our chiropractors understand that you have daily tasks that you must perform while you are healing. However, performing a task wrong could reinjure the area or cause additional injuries. Here at Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Centers, we can suggest alternative ways to perform your daily tasks that will reduce your risk of re-injury while you are healing and help prevent future injuries.
Posture and Spinal Screenings
Maintaining good posture can help prevent many back and neck injuries. Our chiropractor in Orland Park can evaluate your posture and spine and make recommendations that will improve your posture and reduce your back pain. Regular posture screenings can also help diagnose certain back ailments, like Scoliosis, before they become severe. We can also recommend ergonomic changes for your home and work offices.
If you suffer from back pain, one option you may consider is a Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can temporarily reduce inflammation around the irritated nerve
