Our Hollywood chiropractor treats a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions in Hollywood, Florida so that you can feel better faster and get back to your favorite activities.
Car accidents and personal injuries can cause a variety of injuries, including whiplash, sprains, strains, tendonitis, shoulder, wrist and ankle injuries and neck and back injuries. In severe instances, you may even experience a herniated disc. Symptoms of car accidents and personal injuries include pain, inflammation, swelling and loss of range of motion. You may also notice an increase in headaches and experience periods of blurry vision or sensitivity to light and/or sound.
Herniated discs can occur during a car accident, a hard fall or as the result of age-related wear and tear on the back. When an individual receives the diagnosis or a herniated disc, it means that a portion of the disc as slipped or bulged out of place or the inner disc material has slipped through the outer disc material. Common symptoms include loss of range of motion and intermittent or chronic pain. If the disc material is putting pressure on a nerve, it can result in numbness or tingling in the extremities.
Lower back pain is extremely common in adults. Weak core and back muscles, overuse, herniated discs and sprains, and strains can all cause lower back pain. You may also be more at risk of developing lower back pain if you are overweight because the increased fat in the stomach can put extra pressure on the lumbar region of the spine.
Neck pain can occur due to a variety of conditions and injuries. Common causes of neck pain include whiplash, misalignments in the cervical vertebrae, degenerative disc diseases, tension and stress, poor posture and text neck. In addition to neck pain, you may also have difficulty moving your neck, an increase in headaches, difficulty sleeping, and shoulder pain.
Sciatica is a term that refers to any compression or injury of the sciatic nerve, which starts in the lower back, branches in the buttocks and travels down both legs. The most common cause of sciatic nerve pain is a herniated disc, but it can also occur due to degenerative disc disease, piriformis syndrome (extremely tight buttock muscles), spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. Symptoms of sciatica include moderate to severe lower back pain and numbness and/or weakness in the legs.
When you have an injury or condition, it’s important to schedule an appointment right away with our chiropractor at Back to Mind Chiropractic in Hollywood, FL.
