How treatment from our Richmond office can help you feel better

Are you experiencing negative health symptoms like neck pain or headaches? Visiting a chiropractor may be able to help you overcome these issues. Led by Dr. Scott Shaw, Shaw Chiropractic Center (located in Richmond, VA) offers a full range of chiropractic services—read Chiropractor Procedureon to find out what a chiropractor can do for you!


1. Migraines/Headaches

Many Americans suffer from headaches. Taking pain medication and hoping your headache disappears is one option, but there is a better one. Studies have shown that spinal manipulation is an effective way to counter migraines and headaches, with immediate relief sometimes as a result.


2. Stress/Anxiety

Stress is how your brain and body responds to exhausting demands such as school, work, or any major life changes. Some stress can be good for you, as it produces a boost that provides the drive to help people achieve their goals. Too much of it, though, can have health consequences and take a severe toll on your mental health. Chiropractors work primarily with the spine and can help the body manage and process stress in a healthier way.


3. Blood Pressure

Hypertension (i.e. high blood pressure) occurs when blood pressure is higher than normal, and if left untreated, it can lead to a range of health problems, including stroke and heart disease. A recent study showed that spinal manipulation could give people suffering from high blood pressure the same effect as taking certain high blood pressure medications, with positive effects lasting for several months after the adjustment.


4. Chronic Pain

Research shows that both spinal manipulation and therapeutic ultrasound can help with chronic neck and back pain. Ultrasound is used to provide deep heating to the tissues in the body in order to help reduce your pain and speed up the healing process. Many chiropractors also offer electrotherapy treatments to their patients. This treatment works by sending out electrical impulses to charge block pain signals and reduce the pain you feel.


5. Reduce Inflammation

Inflammation is one of the top causes of pain, joint problems, and tension. Chronic inflammation has also been linked to a number of conditions such as chronic pain, heart disease, and cancer. Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce inflammation, which can lead to a number of positive benefits, including reduced muscle tension and pain relief. Reduced inflammation can also help lower your risk of developing diseases that are linked to high inflammation.
