Back Pain  Maple Grove, MN

Back Pain

Since back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, it is vital to know how to prevent the cause of back pain. By maintaining a healthy diet and weight, remaining active and avoiding prolonged inactivity or bed rest are all important ways to avoid back pain. Before doing exercises or any physical activity, it is recommended to warm up and/or stretch.

What Are the Common Causes of Lower Back Pain?

If you feel a constant ache or pain that seems to radiate in the lower half of your back, you are probably wondering what is causing your body this stress. More often than not, Dr. Tieri finds that the root cause of this discomfort comes from a muscle or ligament strain or sprain. Twisting, lifting heavy objects, and sudden shar movements can tear these muscles, which is like a domino effect that leads to lower back pain.

A herniated disc is another common cause of lower back pain, which can also cause sciatica. Essentially, when this happens, nerve roots in your lower spine become compressed, causing a pain and numbness to travel through that part of the back. Prolonged sitting can worsen the situation, which is why there are so many office workers who suffer from pain in their lower back.

When is Chiropractic Treatment Needed?

Fortunately, chiropractic treatment can provide you with a non-invasive solution to your lower back problems. If you suffer from limited mobility, have constant pain, and/or periods of severe muscle spasms, you could benefit from Dr. Tieri’s professional chiropractic services.

What Will My Treatment Plan Consists Of?

Spinal manipulation, or spinal adjustment, aims to correct the position of your spine so that the irritability or surrounding nerves is reduced. By relieving the nerves of your lower back from this pressure, you may find that your pain is reduced and your mobility is restored. Massage therapy, neuromuscular re-education, rehabilitative therapy, intersegmental traction and at home stretching and strengthening programs are often also incorporated into treatment protocol to provide a holistic approach to healing.

neck pain  Maple Grove, MN

Neck Pain

The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

Why Does Neck Pain Occur?

The neck is comprised of a series of nerves, joints, and muscles, and it provides the stability to support your head as well as strength, as an integral part of the spinal structure. Everything from bad posture to car accidents and even the way you sleep can cause neck pain. Anything that places stress on the spine and nervous system can magnify the pain you feel and worsen your symptoms.

Essentially, when your spine is misaligned, the nerves in the surrounding areas can become irritated. This can cause tension and pain. Dr. Tieri is able to offer various treatment options to address this occurence and help relieve you of your neck pain.

How Serious is My Neck Pain?

When you’ve had neck pain for an extended period of time, it can be difficult to determine the severity of your injuries. Some days may be better than others, but no neck pain should be ignored. Neck pain can also be accompanied by radiating pain into other areas of your body, such as your shoulders, arms and even hands. These radiating symptoms can also be a good indicator into the severity of your condition.

If you’ve suffered from an accident where your neck or spine was injured, or you have had chronic neck pain consistently, there is a great possiblity that you could benefit from visiting Dr. Tieri. Neck pain can be debilitating, and injuries can be permanent, but the aches can be calmed through proper pain management.

What Can Chiropractic Care Do For Me?

Since the root cause of neck pain is often a misalignment in the spine, the appropriate treatment should aim to correct this issue. Spinal aligment is essentially when your chiropractor, Dr. Tieri, applies pressure to the appropriate area of your spinal column, encouraging your joints to move back into their rightful position. Onces your bones are realigned, the nerves in the surrounding area will no longer be under pressure, allowing your body to function and feel the way it was designed.

If you suffer from chronic or acute neck pain, contact Total Spine Health and Injury Center to discover how chiropractic care can help you.

headaches migraines  Maple Grove, MN

Headaches/ Migraines

Nine out of ten Americans say that they suffer from headaches. Some of these people experience headaches frequently. Some experience constant headaches that are very painful. These can even make a person nauseous. Ninety-five percent of headaches are tension, migraine, or cluster headaches. These types of headaches are not caused from a disease, but from something in your body that is not sitting correctly.

Which Symptoms are Related to a Migraine?

If you suffer from migraines, which are essentially extreme headaches that occur on a regular basis, you are probably well aware of the radiating head pain that comes as a direct result of this condition. However, Dr. Tieri has witnessed that suffres can also experience nausea, dizziness, fatigue, body numbness, sensitivity to light or noise, neck pain and much more.

What Causes Migraines and Headaches?

Sometimes, environmental conditions or liestyle choices can bring about a headache, but migraines can often be sourced back to a misalignment of the spine. Due to repetitive stress, an injury, or even developmental issues, the spine can move out of place and put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When these nerves become irritated, they send confused messages to the muscles in your neck and jaw telling them to tense up, which can resut in a headache or migraine.

What’s even worse is that over time, this tightness can actually cause the misalignment in your body’s structure to worsen. The more your spine’s position moves, the more frequent migraines can become, ultimately making symptoms even more intense and sometimes unbearable. Fortunately, with proper chiropractic care from Dr. Tieri, these issues can often be corrected.

How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help?

Due to the nature of what can cause migraines and headaches, chiropractic treatment can be quite beneficial to those who suffer from such a condition. By eliminating possible causes of your head and neck pain, your chiropractor will begin to work towards a treatment plan that aims to correct the root of the problem. With a series of gentle yet effective adjustments, Dr. Tieri can help reduce stress on your nervous system, which can ultimately reduce your pain.

By contacting Total Spine Health and Injury Center, you can find out more about how you can rid yourself of migraines and headaches.

Sciatica  Maple Grove, MN

Sciatica

Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down one or both legs. The pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, like “pins and needles” or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations.

What are the Symptoms of Sciatica?

Aside from the obvious pain that occurs in the lower back with this condition, there are also other symptoms that can result due to sciatica. Oftentimes, those that have an irritated sciatic nerve will also experience pain or numbness in the buttocks and one or both of the legs. The pain can even radiate all the way down to the feet and toes.

Degenerative Disc Disease  Maple Grove, MN

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is when natural changes in the discs of your spine cause pain. The discs between vertebrae act as shock absorbers for your spine, and as you age, they begin to lose flexibility. While this is a normal part of aging, it should not cause pain. If you experience pain due to this, it is classified as degenerative disc disease.

Each disc is composed of a sturdy outer wall and a soft, gel-like inner core. When we are born, these discs are primarily composed of water, but as age advances, the discs lose some of this water content and begin to get thinner. As you might imagine, this means each disc doesn’t absorb the shocks of everyday life as well.
