Chiropractor Q & A

What types of pain can my chiropractor treat?

Dr. Reichardt, DC, treats many different types of pain using noninvasive methods. Some of the pain problems that commonly lead patients to Center for Health include:

Pinched nerve

A pinched nerve occurs when a nerve root gets trapped between the vertebrae in your spine. Pinched nerves can occur anywhere in the spine, including the neck (cervical spine), the upper back (the thoracic spine), and the lower back (lumbar spine). A pinched nerve can be quite painful.

Disc injuries

Disc injuries occur when one of the rubbery discs between your spinal vertebrae gets damaged. Discs can herniate, which means that the exterior disc shell develops a small tear and the disc starts leaking its contents. Another disc injury is bulging disc, in which the disc contents push their way into its outer shell. Disc injuries can happen anywhere in your spine, with the neck and lower back being the most common areas.

Disc degeneration

Disc degeneration occurs because of wear-and-tear over the years. Discs can shrink over time, leaving less cushion between vertebrae. This may cause pain, numbness, and other symptoms. You can develop disc degeneration in any part of your spine.

Sports injuries

Sports injuries can cause pain and leave you sidelined permanently if you don’t heal and rehabilitate properly. Dr. Reichardt, DC, treats a wide variety of sports injuries, like sprains and strains, using spine balancing techniques and soft tissue manipulation.

If an injury or chronic pain condition is keeping you from living life to the fullest, Dr. Reichardt, DC, can help.
