Spine Problems Can Be Fixed By a Chiropractor

We regularly hear people say that their doctor told them not to see a chiropractor because they have spinal arthritis or bulging/herniated discs. It saddens us to hear this because Chiropractic is likely exactly what they need. Back problems are a major cause of suffering, disability and poor health worldwide. Multitudes of studies in respected peer-reviewed journals from all over the world over the last couple of decades have proven chiropractic is highly effective for back pain caused by spinal osteoarthritis and disc degeneration. We are thrilled to be part of the Singapore community and to help you cope with osteoarthritic spines and degenerative discs without the need for risky medication and surgery.

What You Need to Know

Spinal Osteoarthritis can lead to nerve impingement. Pinched nerves are terrible to live with. A impinged or compressed nerve can cause pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arm or leg (Mayo Clinic). It is debilitating! When your spinal nerves are leaving your vertebral column, they have very little protection. A disc, ligament, or bone spur can get close to a nerve…ouch! The pain starts from there and travel through the entire length of that nerve. This results in pain that radiates down to your arms and legs. Let’s just say that your nerves don’t appreciate being pushed around.

The good news is that you can experience a lot of relief by taking the pressure off of the nerves. Research has shown that chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the pinching or compression on those delicate nerves roots (American Chiropractic Association). And with less pressure on the nerve, you can finally find relief.

  • Your nerves communicate with every organ, tissue, and cell in your body (Live Science)
  • Bone spurs, ligament overgrowth, or disc problems can cause pressure on these nerves
  • Adjustments gently open the holes, or canals, of your spine, thereby decreasing the pressure on the nerves to help you function and feel better!

Take a look around and do some “people watching” today. You will see that many people walk crooked or bent over towards one side (Live Strong). Sometimes this is the result of a pinched nerve (Medical News Today). They are trying to lean away from the pain and open up those nerve channels. But, by staying active, maintaining a full range of motion, and getting periodic chiropractic care – you can count on standing tall for years to come!
