Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments, or spinal manipulation, involves the process of removing spinal misalignment. With careful manipulation, chiropractic adjustments can address the root of many problems. It’s important to take care of any minor pain or discomfort as soon as possible so it doesn’t lead to major health conditions in the future. The chiropractors at our South Austin clinic are willing to help. Call us to set up a consultation today.

Sports Injury Treatment

At Absolute Wellness, we treat a variety of sports-related injuries. They include sprained ankles, pulled muscles in the neck, back, hamstring, and groin, tennis elbow, knee injuries, and shoulder or arm pain. It’s best to treat all sports injuries to prevent further damage. Our South Austin clinic has skilled sports chiropractors and sports massage therapists. Our chiropractors can perform adjustments and speed up the recovery process for highly active and athletic individuals. In addition, we offer sports massages to increase blood flow to the muscles and assist in full-body recovery.

Car Accident Injury

Car accidents can take a toll on our bodies; the most common injuries are soft tissue injuries, whiplash, and injuries to the arms, legs, and hips. Soft tissue injuries occur in muscles, ligaments, and tendons. These injuries can show up as cuts, bruises, or heavy tissue damage. Neck and back injuries are also common because of whiplash. Chest injuries as well as arm, leg, and hip injuries can happen from the impact of an accident. If you have been involved in an accident, make an appointment for a consultation at our South Austin clinic.

Whiplash Treatment

Whiplash is most commonly associated with car accidents. When your neck snaps back and forth or side to side, it can eventually lead to neck pain. Even if the pain doesn’t show up immediately, it’s essential to visit a chiropractor for treatment. If left untreated, whiplash may turn into long-term discomfort or become a chronic condition.

Neck Pain

Up to 70% of adults suffer from neck pain at some point in their lives. Thankfully, there are many chiropractic treatments that can reduce neck pain. Some treatments are chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, posture correction exercises, and exercises that you can do on your own. For any neck pain, making an appointment at Absolute Wellness in South Austin will help you be on your way to a more fulfilling, pain-free life.

Lower Back Pain

Having lower back pain is a condition that can truly affect your day-to-day life. Even mundane activities become difficult with back pain. Causes of lower back pain are soft tissue damage, improper alignment, and pulled muscles. Herniated discs occur because of trauma and can create to excruciating pain. Sciatica is also very painful and occurs when a disk places pressure on the sciatic nerve. Having lower back pain can lead to more serious conditions over time, so it’s vital to treat pain early on.

Upper and Mid-Back Pain

Upper- and mid-back pain begins with poor posture, herniated disc trauma, or overusing muscles. Many office employees who have sedentary lifestyles are prone to upper- and mid-back pain in addition to lower back pain. It’s important to receive chiropractic treatment to relieve pain and relax muscles. Make an appointment at our South Austin location to receive a consultation and treatment.
