Headaches, neuritis and radiculitis are the most commonly treated neurological conditions in the chiropractic profession.
Headaches: Headaches can be caused by a wide variety of problems, including neurological, vascular, and muscular causes. Chiropractic treatment is effective for kinds of headaches, including chronic, tension and migraine headaches, and those caused by disorders of the neck.
Neuritis: Neuritis is the inflammation of any part of a nerve, other than the nerve root. With neuritis, patients sometimes experience sensations called paresthesias (feelings of tingling, hot spots, cold spots, crawling sensations, stinging, and burning).
Radiculitis: Radiculitis is the inflammation of a nerve root as it exits the spine. Radiculitis is a common source of shoulder, arm and hand pain.
Loss of equilibrium/vertigo is another condition sometimes treated by our office.
Depending on the underlying cause the disorder, chiropractic treatment can be effective for treating these problems, either alone or in conjunction with other therapies. Because neurological problems can be extremely serious and even life-threatening, these situations often call for a referral to or co-management by other healthcare professionals.
