When you are experiencing back pain, it is recommended that you talk to a chiropractor about it … especially for recurring back pain. Relief from back pain is just one of the many benefits of chiropractic care. Small misalignments in the spine are a very common cause of back pain and nerve pain that is felt in other parts of the body. Only doctors of chiropractic are trained to identify and treat these small issues that can cause big problems.

Becoming pain free is an outcome that everyone desires. That is why we make sure that all the treatment options available at our chiropractic care clinic in Austin, TX are aimed at offering some immediate relief from back pain along with working toward long term correction. While at the clinic, you will receive patient centered and results driven care that aims to ease away the pain so you can get back to moving more effectively and pain-free.

The doctor will first do a thorough orthopedic and neurological examination of you and then determine a specific diagnosis of what is causing your problem. He will then work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan aimed at achieving the goals that mater to you. We know that relief can start with that very first visit with Dr. Henry who was named the 2014 Young Chiropractor of the Year by the Texas Chiropractic Association.

Chiropractic Care Includes Cervical Manipulation to Treat Neck Disc Pain - Austin, TX

TexStar Chiropractic - Cervical Manipulation to treat neck pain, Austin, TX

The part of the neck which begins at the base of the skull and contains the smallest vertebrae is also called the cervical spine. The benefits of chiropractic include solutions that end neck disc pain.

The cervical spine is the part of the neck that holds the entire weight of the head and provides all of the structure and stability of the neck. A head is an average of about 12 pounds so you can just imagine the negative impact of this weight on your neck when you do not maintain good posture while sitting, standing, and walking. The neck also moves your head in nearly every direction which is an amazing and unique feature of this part of the spine. The problem is that this flexibility makes your neck very susceptible to pain and injury. Our chiropractic care clinic in Austin, TX offers treatment for those who experience problems in their cervical spine such as neck disc pain or related pain in the upper back or arms.

Neck disc pain can be very bothersome. Chiropractors ensure that the small vertebrae in your cervical spine are in good condition and properly aligned by performing cervical manipulation when indicated. This is a very precise procedure performed on the neck which improves the mobility of the spine, restores range of motion, and treats neck disc pain.

Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments for Radiating Pain in Arms or Legs - Austin TX

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 02, 2016

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is how we describe the symptoms coming from damage to or disease of the nerves. These symptoms are most commonly pain or numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, legs, or feet. Neuropathy can also show up as impairments in balance or muscle weakness.

There are many different causes for neuropathy including diabetes, medication, vitamin deficiency, and nerve compression but they all cause nerve damage. The good news is that something can be done.

The first step in treatment is determining the type of neuropathy you have.

Ischemic Neuropathy

The nerves rely on tiny blood vessels to bring them highly oxygenated blood. All cells in our body, including nerves, need oxygen to stay healthy and stay alive. The blood sugar spikes associated with diabetes causes damage to the blood vessels starting with the smallest ones which feed oxygen and nutrients to your nerves. Some pharmaceuticals as well as vitamin deficiencies can also contribute to collapse of the blood vessels. When cells do not get the oxygen they need from the blood and start to die, this is called ischemia.

By better controlling your blood sugar, using nutrition to support healthy blood vessels, and combining other therapies which promote cell repair, you can improve your body’s ability to stop and heal the damage to the nerves and blood vessels that are causing your problem.

Mechanical Neuropathy

Some common causes of mechanical compression of a nerve are: a bulged/herniated disc in the lower back, muscle spasm in the buttocks, or legs, or a direct trauma to a nerve. This is called a radiculopathy. When there is compression on a nerve, the signal that carries information from the cells in your body to your brain cannot be transmitted correctly. This can appear as pain, numbness, or tingling as well as issues with balance and muscle weakness.

With this kind of neuropathy we focus on removing the cause of the problem, which is the compression or irritation of the nerve root. We do this by using treatments like spinal manipulation, non-surgical decompression, MLS cold laser therapy, and other physio therapy approaches.

We do a thorough orthopedic and neurological evaluation to determine the type and severity of your neuropathy and then develop a custom treatment plan specific to your condition.
