LifeClinic of Ardmore, PA, offers chiropractic care and rehabilitation services in treating different musculoskeletal conditions. Below are some of the many conditions we can address:
Arthritis is the swelling of one’s joints. It decreases your range of motion, making everyday activities more difficult. It is a rheumatic condition that becomes more common the older you get. Medical professionals suggest various treatments with the general goal of reducing symptoms to improve the quality of life. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Extremities are the limbs or appendages of the body. Your upper extremities, including the arms, shoulders, and neck, experience pain due to wear and tear. On the other hand, pain in the lower extremities like the legs, feet, and ankle area is due to poor posture or trauma.
Scoliosis is defined as the sideways curvature of the spine. It commonly occurs just before puberty. Diagnosing scoliosis is easy because there are evident visual signs such as uneven shoulders, waist, and a more prominent shoulder blade. While most scoliosis cases are mild, some develop to become more disabling such as hindering proper breathing.
Lower Back Pain
The lumbar spine or lower back is located just below the ribcage. It is a structure of bones, muscles, and nerves that work together to provide you with the support and flexibility you need. Lower back pains cause a stabbing or shooting sensation, making it harder to move or stand upright. While most lower back pains often heal naturally, some cases may require the help of a doctor.
Upper Back Pain
The upper back portion of your body can be found from the base of your neck down to the bottom of the ribcage. The twelve bones that make up the upper back can be the location of your pain. It is often caused by poor posture, an injury, or the overuse of a muscle.
Dizziness & Vertigo
These two conditions often come together. Dizziness affects your eyes and ears and causes a lightheadedness feeling, wooziness, and imbalance. In addition to these, vertigo brings a spinning sensation as if your surroundings are moving, making you lose your balance.
