The Importance of Seeing a Chiropractor in St. Petersburg, FL

Many people go their whole lives without ever seeing a chiropractor, because they don’t understand the importance of chiropractic care. In this case, we like to compare your spine to your teeth. Would you go your entire life without seeing a dentist? Probably not, because the consequences are more than unfavorable.

Your spine houses and protects your spinal cord, and if it is not lined up properly, it puts pressure on the spinal cord. When the spinal column remains out of proper alignment, pain and decreased range of motion present themselves. Prolonged decreased range of motion in the spine can lead to unpleasant conditions like arthritis and degenerative disc disease down the road.

Chiropractic adjustments help to restore alignment to your spine and prevent these conditions. As motion is induced/restored in the spine, it allows for increased blood flow, and restores the connection between the brain, nerves, and tissues so system in your body can function properly again.

  • The Benefits of Seeing a Chiropractor Extend Beyond Relief from Just Back and Neck Pain

    When you think of seeing a chiropractor, you may immediately think of back pain. While chiropractic adjustments do in fact treat back and neck pain, they also help patients find relief from a large range of other symptoms throughout the entire body, including:

    • Impaired range of motion
    • Respiratory/asthma symptoms
    • Joint pain
    • Shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, and foot pain
    • Headaches & migraines
    • TMJ & jaw pain
    • Vertigo
    • Wrist & carpal tunnel pain
    • Poor immune system function
Dr. Maltese was able--in one 30-minute session--to fix long-standing issues in my neck, back, and shoulders that other therapists and chiropractors had been unable to resolve for months. He's definitely more effective than a typical chiropractor, and he has a wide variety of techniques and instruments at his disposal. Highly recommended.

A Comprehensive Approach to Restored Function

At Primal Performance, we often use holistic therapies like cupping and scraping in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, because we believe in providing the most comprehensive care for your body as possible. Although your spine may need to be realigned, there may be underlying causes from injuries or overuse of muscles that are causing misalignment in your spine. Adhesions, or breakdown in the muscles, can cause pain, decrease mobility, and leave your joints unstable. Cupping and scraping help to break down these adhesions and work with your adjustment to relieve pain and restore stability to the joints.

Why continue to live with pain when there is a simple solution waiting for you?
