The pelvis is the centre point that gives stability to the body when we walk and the part on which we sit. Often subject to mechanical alterations, the pelvis with prolonged dysfunction causes diverse discopathies, frombulging to protrusion, up to herniated disc. Additionally, pelvic elevation in the skeletons of children andadolescents can cause episodes of scoliosis.
Kyphosis is a pronounced forward curvature, or “hump,” of the spine. In most cases, it can be prevented or corrected to varying degrees in children and adolescents. In adults, its progression can be counteracted andprevented from causing pain.
Coccygodynia presents with coccyx pain that usually increases when sitting and can affect sexual and urinaryfunction. It is a problem of mechanical origin often localised in the coccyx area.
In pregnant women, pelvic pain often occurs in the anterior part of the pelvis. As the baby grows, more load is put in the pelvic area, which can be debilitating during pregnancy and labour. Restoring the correct position of the pelvis and pelvic symphysis gives excellent relief.
These are problems in the ribs and the muscles around them, which could spread to the chest, belly, andstomach.
Back pain is pain in the back, often aggravated by repeated incorrect positions or movements. Usually found in people who work on computers, it is one of the most commonly treated problems in chiropractic.
Disc herniation is the last stage of intervertebral disc degeneration; the disc undergoes a displacement that can irritate nearby nerves, resulting in back pain and sciatica. The chiropractic adjustment restores thecorrect joint movement, decreasing the irritation to the nerves and, therefore, the relative symptoms.
Whatever the pathology, postural analysis is one of the ﬁrst tests that the Chiropractor performs. Abnormal curvature of the spine may be due to various joint dysfunctions. Congenital conditions or acquired curvesare often irreversible, but chiropractic can intervene to avoid the pathology’s progression.
This is a problem in spinal mechanics, a speciality of chiropractors.
Identifying the causes and removing them safely and effectively is the speciality of chiropractic—thesepresent pathologies of pain in the back, pelvis, and, sometimes, the legs. From the ﬁrst visit, the Chiropractorcan identify even the rare cases requiring other particular interventions.
The normal curvature in the neck and lumbar area can be excessive or reduced due to congenital or traumatic causes. Chiropractors are spine specialists, so they can intervene to bring the spine to its properfunction.
Osteoporosis is a condition that requires us to treat patients with gentle but very effective techniques. The best way to prevent or slow osteoporosis is movement, and ﬁxing it is the Chiropractor’s speciality.
Pubalgia is a pain in the pubis. Often hard to correct with traditional methods, chiropractic can resolve groin pain by analysing posture, walking, joint mobility, and muscle function.
If due to a compressed or traction nerve, paraesthesia can be successfully resolved through chiropractic.
It is an incorrect curvature of the spine. In many cases, it can be prevented or resolved; in other subjects, itcan be reduced. In adults, it is often superimposed on a postural twist that worsens it, but the Chiropractorcan eliminate it.
Rather a common problem with symptoms similar to those of sciatica.
Caused by disc problems or not, at the base of this pathology, there is a neuro-postural alteration that iscorrected with great success with chiropractic.
