During an initial consultation for chiropractic adjustment Rockville, MD patients trust at the Pain & Arthritis Relief Center, we may talk with you about the many ways that you could benefit from our care. Unfortunately, in many cases patients do not walk through our doors until they are in a great amount of pain and discomfort, and then it will take even more treatments in order to start unravelling the cause of the problem. That is why we have written this article here, to provide current and prospective patients with signs that it is time to book an appointment with a chiropractor at our clinic.

Frequent and Intense Headaches

A headache can result due to a number of factors, such as oxygen deprivation, malnutrition, dehydration, or a spinal misalignment. A chiropractor can help relieve the intensity and frequency of your headaches through spinal adjustments and other treatment approaches, to improve blood flow and increase oxygen to the brain. We may also suggest making certain changes to your diet so that you can enhance your overall health. Foods that are especially beneficial in combating headaches include: 

  • Low Fat milk
  • Cantaloupe
  • Potatoes
  • Cherries
  • Cranberries
  • Water
  • Navy Beans
  • Fatty Fish
  • Brown Rice
  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Summer Squash

Joint and Muscle Pain

Those who are dealing with pain of their muscles or joints may immediately reach for an over-the-counter pain reliever medication in their bathroom cabinet. However, this pain could be stemming from a misalignment of the musculoskeletal system and medicine may only temporarily blanket the issue. A doctor for chiropractic Rockville, MD patients trust can ensure that your body functions optimally by using spinal manipulations. Spinal adjustments result in better conductivity of nerves to muscles and joints that are experiencing pain. 

Soles Of Each Shoe Wear Differently

If you have observed that the soles of your shoes wear at different rates, this is a strong indication that your body is not in alignment and must be adjusted. Shoes that are unevenly worn is a sign that you have spinal subluxation and require chiropractic care promptly. Our chiropractor can gently coax your spine and joints into the resting position they are supposed to be in, and then suggest how often you should come back for more sessions depending on the severity of the misalignment. One session may not be enough to fix a subluxation problem that has worsened over a long period of time.
