Are you living with pain, discomfort, or loss of mobility? Every symptom tells a unique story, and at Gremmels Chiropractic Center, we are here to listen to your body and help it heal. Our comprehensive chiropractic care in Birmingham is different for each patient, but we offer a variety of all-natural services and treatment techniques to fit all your wellness needs.
Pain is always a symptom of a larger problem within your body, and our goal is to eliminate it by tackling the source of your symptom. We offer massage therapy to reduce tightness in your muscles and pressure on your nerves, chiropractic adjustments to correct posture and provide everyday pain relief, and nutritional/lifestyle advice to keep your spinal tissue hydrated, your back muscles strong, and your weight and diet healthy.
If you suffer from any of the following conditions, our chiropractic team will help customize a pain management plan for you. Whether your pain is sudden or acute, moderate or severe, your chiropractor will work with you to find an all-natural, non-invasive path toward long-term pain relief.
After a sudden or repetitive injury, ongoing pain is a sign that your body is not healing properly. Inflammation and stiffness are very common side effects of musculoskeletal injuries, but unfortunately, they can also cause debilitating pain and prevent healthy cells from regenerating at the right rate. If you are struggling to recover from an injury, consider some of our chiropractic treatments for injuries in Birmingham.
Sports Injury Treatments – We help athletes manage pain and avoid further injury after musculoskeletal damage, including sprains and strains that leave the muscle tissue too inflamed to heal properly. If your body still needs time to heal after an athletic injury, seek treatment before you do further damage to your muscles and joints. We treat sports-related conditions such as ACL tears, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis.
Auto Accident Treatments – Muscle pain and stiffness are common after auto accidents, even if the collision seems minor, and symptoms often get worse over time. Seek chiropractic care right away to treat injuries like whiplash before they cause long-term disc or tissue damage.
Workplace Injury Treatments – On the job injuries can range from repetitive, gradual muscle damage (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome and back strain) to sprains, fractures, and herniated discs due to sudden workplace accidents. Our goal is to speed up the healing process and help you get back to work.
Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to health care, which means every treatment takes the whole body into consideration. Instead of settling for short-term solutions that relieve isolated symptoms, our Birmingham chiropractor always tries to get a complete picture of your physical and mental condition, including your symptoms and any lifestyle factors that may affect your ability to heal.
Once your chiropractor has a firm grasp on the root cause of your symptoms, our team gets to work on a treatment plan that's right for you. Some patients benefit from manual spinal adjustments that correct posture and release tension; others supplement their chiropractic care with massage therapy or nutritional counseling. Here are some of the techniques and treatment methods we use at Gremmels Chiropractic Center:
Spinal Decompression – If your back pain is caused by bulging or degenerating discs, you may benefit from this traction therapy technique, which lowers spinal pressure and slightly repositions the disc material with the use of isolated force.
Activator Method – Many chiropractic adjustments are manual, but some incorporate the use of instruments like the Activator, a spring-loaded handheld device that allows your chiropractor to deliver quick, localized impulses without bending or moving the joints.
Graston Technique – If scar tissue is restricting your muscle or ligament movements, your soft tissue may respond to the Graston tools we use to stimulate blood flow, stretch restricted tissue, and promote healing.
