Disc Pain

Chiropractic East Providence RI Disc Pain Help

Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they also depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily.

Migraine Headaches

Chiropractic East Providence RI Migraines and Headaches

Headaches are often caused when spinal nerves and the surrounding tissues become irritated or stretched. Initially, these nerves and blood vessels may become affected if the bones of the spine become misaligned or lose motion. Aspirin and other medications are available to dull headache pain, but they do not remedy the underlying cause - often spinal bones in the upper back and neck.

Neck Pain

Chiropractic East Providence RI Neck Pain

It's believed that imbalances in the spinal structure often result from prolonged muscle strain, causing continuous tension on the discs, ligaments, muscles, and bones. This tension is problematic, as it makes the neck more susceptible to injury or re-injury. In general, any injuries to the spine may lead to various forms of neck and back pain.

Muscles, tendons, and ligaments depend upon proper joint movement for peak performance. Injuries to these tissues can reduce the range of motion, decrease blood supply, and literally “take you out of the game.”
