Body Pain – Richardson, TX
Say Goodbye to Chronic Body Pain
Did you know that we can treat more than just neck and back pain? Severe pain can pop up anywhere in the body when joints, muscles, and connective tissues aren’t functioning properly. Once we figure out the source and cause of your pain, we can create a personalized treatment plan to address it—often through spinal adjustments and effective exercises. You don’t have to live with pain—contact us and schedule an appointment with Dr. Z.
Do you experience pain on the inside of the front lower leg? Characterized by pain in this specific area, shin splints most often affect runners and others who are physically active. When the leg muscles aren’t given enough time to heal and rest, inflammation and swelling can occur in the muscles, tendons, or tissue. Although you can apply ice at home for short-term relief, Dr. Z can teach you rehabilitation and stretching exercises to repair these areas. As a result, you can continue to be active and have a healthy lifestyle free from pain.
When a patient complains about stabbing pain in the heel of the foot, particularly in the morning, it can most often be explained as plantar fasciitis, or inflammation near the plantar fascia bone. This condition is especially common in runners, those who are overweight or pregnant, and people who wear shoes that don’t provide proper support. From targeting the Achilles tendon in stretching exercises, Dr. Z can demonstrate proper physiotherapy techniques that promote healing in this area.
Even though osteoarthritis pain can manifest in the knee, it typically shows
up first in the hip area. The pain can then shoot into the groin, down the thighs in and into the knees. Osteoarthritis pain gets worse in colder weather or while the patient is participating in running or walking. To treat this, our chiropractor in Richardson can make subtle spinal adjustments to make sure everything is in proper alignment and to relieve some of the pain.
Knee pain can originate from several different causes, including arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and gout; injury to the ligament or tendons; or changes to the knee’s typical way of working. Depending on your needs, Dr. Z can work with you and your physician and customize chiropractic care to reestablish healthy alignment in the spine and joints and relax the muscles that surround the knee. Treatment with Dr. Z can also improve range of motion and reduce painful inflammation, giving you more function in your joints.
Throughout your body, nerves can become irritated, inflamed, and compressed, sending a sharp pain signal to the brain. In some cases, this nerve pain is the result of misalignment or improper motion in the joints and muscles along the spine. This is called a subluxation. Other times, muscle “knots” can form in areas that are damaged or overworked, causing a pinching or burning sensation. The good news is that these sources of pain tend to respond well to spinal adjustments and chiropractic care.
