5 Signs That Indicate You Need To Visit A Chiropractor

5 Signs That Indicate You Need To Visit A Chiropractor | Orchard Health Clinic

 

Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Sometimes, homemade treatments can be sufficient to alleviate the pain. On the other hand, when the pain becomes unbearable, many may seek chiropractic care to help manage their conditions. So when should you opt for the latter approach? Well, let us share the top five signs that indicate you should visit our chiropractors at Orchard Health Clinic.

Sign #1: You experience chronic pain in your joints and muscles

You Experience Chronic Pain in Your Joints and Muscles | Signs that You Need Chiropractor

Do you wake up with chronic pain in your joints or muscles? It is possible that your mattress may need changing, or your pain could be due to issues with your musculoskeletal alignment. Our chiropractors can assess your condition and lifestyle to determine what is causing the pain before recommending a customised treatment plan to help manage the pain.

Treatments may include spinal manipulations to increase blood flow and nerve conductivity to the joints and muscles to help alleviate pain. Our chiropractors may also prescribe therapeutic exercises to build muscle strength and flexibility to reduce muscle fatigue, pain sensitivity, and inflammation.

Sign #2: You have a limited range of motion

There are various reasons for a person’s struggles with putting on their shoes or picking up a laundry basket. A common cause is a musculoskeletal issue that limits their range of motion. So if you have trouble performing these simple day-to-day activities, it may be wise to consult our chiropractors.

Our chiropractors can assess your condition and devise a treatment plan to help improve your range of motion. Whether it is a muscle-related or spinal-related issue, we will recommend the most suitable therapies and treatments to help you regain mobility and get back to enjoying life again!

Sign #3: You suffer from frequent headaches

You Suffer from Frequent Headaches | Signs that You Need a Chiropractor

Often, we turn to medication to help alleviate the pain when we experience a headache. However, this approach is not ideal for someone experiencing chronic headaches. So how do you know if you have chronic headaches? If your daily headaches happen at least 15 days a month and last for a period longer than 3 months, you may have chronic headaches.

The cause of your chronic headache could be due to a pinched nerve in your spine, tension in your muscles, or inflammation of your joints. Our headache specialists at Orchard Health Clinic can manipulate your spine or muscle to reduce the tension, thereby relieving your headache symptoms and improving blood flow to the brain. We may also recommend changes to your diet to improve your overall well-being, if necessary.

Sign #4: You experienced a traumatic injury recently

Do not underestimate the long-term effects of a traumatic injury. Many individuals often experience a limited range of motion, stiffness, and joint or soft tissue pain years after an incident. Even accidents that do not appear severe can continue causing problems years later, impacting your quality of life.

So we recommend visiting our chiropractors if you have suffered from a traumatic injury recently. Our chiropractic care can help reduce inflammation and promote healing, ensuring your injury heals correctly and you regain your mobility.

Sign #5: Your work confines you to a desk for hours daily

Your Work Confines You to a Desk for Hours Daily | Signs That You Need a Chiropractor

Are you spending most of your workday hunched over a computer? Well, this is definitely common for many Singaporeans working a desk or office job.  However, this working arrangement can cause poor posture, placing tremendous pressure on your spine and causing degeneration and alignment issues. You may also experience discomfort in your upper back, neck, and shoulders.

Our chiropractors can help you take pre-emptive measures to slow down and manage the side effects of sitting at your work desk all day. This includes prescribing exercises and stretches to improve your posture and relieve any pain or discomfort. We will also ensure your spine is aligned correctly to minimise your risks of encountering future musculoskeletal problems.

Does any of the signs we shared seem familiar? In that case, it is time to schedule a consultation with our chiropractic clinic in Singapore. Rest assured that our chiropractors are well-trained and have experience helping patients manage their musculoskeletal problems. Do not hesitate to contact us today to enquire about our available treatments.
