Chiropractic Louisville KY Chiropractic Care

Louisville KY Chiropractic care seeks to address disorders caused within the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Around 35 million Americans visit chiropractors annually, seeking treatment for problems such as stiff necks, backaches, whiplashes, and slipped discs to name a few. Here are 3 conditions you (probably) didn't know could be treated by chiropractic care:

Anxiety and Stress in Louisville KY

We feel stress from three primary sources.

  • The Environment: This includes time pressure, weather, physical threats, and job pressure
  • Bodily Stress: This includes organ malfunction, poor sleep, and nutrition.
  • Emotional Stress: Our reactions to the environmental and bodily stresses in both emotion, and thought Global warming, deteriorating health standards in cities, and increasing worries and troubles brought to our attention by the media all contribute toward increasing all three types of stress in our body, which in turn, can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, muscle tissue damage, a breakdown of the immune system and slow recovery.

Chiropractors work mainly on the spine, which is the root of the nervous system. The adjustments help release muscle tension, causing the body to become relaxed. It also helps relieve spinal nerve irritation resulting in an improved blood circulation.


Among the many things we take for granted during our younger years is our wide range of flexibility and motion. As we age, health conditions coupled with years of wear and tear decreases our body's flexibility. Without the regular exercise, the joints and muscles stiffen, and the possibility of scar tissue increases while overall mobility is reduced.

Chiropractors use spinal manipulations and adjustments on different parts to realign the joints and bones. This helps restore the range of motion, reduce pain and improve flexibility. Certain exercises are also recommended to be done at home to increase your flexibility and body strength which aid and complement the chiropractic adjustments.

Regular chiropractic treatment can greatly reduce or eliminate sources of joint and back pain, allowing you greater flexibility even in your later years.

Migraines and Headaches

In the U.S., 9 out of 10 people suffer from some form of a headache. Some of which are dull while others can cause nausea and debilitating pain. While most resort to taking painkillers, chiropractors offer a more natural and effective solution.

Most headaches are found to be linked to muscle tension in the neck. This is a common condition found among Americans who spend a great deal of time in the same posture or position (mainly in front of a television or computer).

This leads to joint tension and irritation in the scalp and upper back which causes headaches. Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation or adjustments to improve the spinal function and reduce stress. They also provide nutritional advice along with suitable relaxation techniques and exercises.

An efficient and effective treatment is possible in the hands of a qualified chiropractor with years of experience coupled with vast expertise. Thankfully, our chiropractor in Louisville KY fits just that description. Contact (502) 489-8480 to book an appointment with Dr. Martin (DC, BS, FASA).
