There can be, they are very unlikely. There is no guarantee in any form of health care. READ MORE
Possibly. I would consult the urgent care first to ensure it is not something more serious. READ MORE
It can be, however that would be an unusual side effect. I would call the Chiropractor you saw to consult with him about it. READ MORE
Could be what is called a Baker's Cyst. However that would be an interesting time for the symptoms to produce/onset. I would consult your primary care physician first to rule out a cyst, first. READ MORE
Keep up on water and consult a medical professional. READ MORE
There are many things that can cause hip symptoms. They range from a simple mechanical misalignment in the pelvis and/or hip, to things like hip displasia or avascular necrosis. Without knowing anything about you, there is no way I can rightfully give you any advice other than to seek a chiropractor who can examine you. READ MORE

As we age, posture, or lack there of, take a toll on our bodies. I am assuming that a chiropractor would not be able to help with the hunching of her back. However, one could assist in any unwanted symptoms that may be arising due to the hunching as well as help to deter any increased hunching of her back. READ MORE
There is definitely a connection between the two. Working on stress relief exercises will help with the back symptoms. READ MORE
It could range from a cyst to simple inflammation. It would be best to consult a chiropractor or your primary care physician about this. READ MORE

Keep up on your water intake and heat is a good remedy for muscle aches. READ MORE
The short answer is yes. It sounds like you injured your back sometime in the last week. This could have been just from sleeping. The way you sleep obviously is not helping. I would look up some ergonomics on sleep posture and make an appointment with a chiropractor, as they should be able to assist you with the discomfort. READ MORE
There could still be swelling in the ankle due to scar tissue that remains and gets in the way of the mechanical motion of the ankle. Doing exercises to regain as much of the range of motion as you can should help with that. READ MORE
Yes, of course it can. I would recommend a chiropractor for that. READ MORE
I am having a lot of hip pain that doctors say is due to spinal degeneration. Can a chiropractor help?
The short answer is yes, however it depends on the severity of your degeneration. I would bring any imaging studies you have had taken of your back to a chiropractor for a consult. READ MORE
It can be, however it depends on the severity and the cause. Imaging and consults with a chiropractor would be the best first step to take. READ MORE
The short answer is yes. There are many causes for migraines. The best way to see if they can is to go and see one. READ MORE

More than likely, yes. I would recommend you consult with a chiropractor about your symptoms. READ MORE
It would be to your best interest to go and consult with a chiropractor for your back symptoms. READ MORE

A lower back lumbar support could be something you could try. There are also different clothing materials you can wear under your normal clothes that can help with posture. Also, getting up regularly to take a quick walk is something you should be doing as well. READ MORE
It could be caused from your pillow. I would recommend consulting with a chiropractor and explaining your symptoms. READ MORE
The short answer is yes. However, you will want to work on losing the weight as that will start to hinder other things with your body. READ MORE

The answer is yes, however you will want to change your diet/lifestyle as continued weight gain will only result in more problems and most likely more serious problems. READ MORE
That really depends on the cause of the symptoms which sounds like it's probably due to the running itself. Someone would have to physically see where the symptoms are and also ask a few more questions from you to get an accurate idea. I would think a Chiropractor would be a great first step towards remedying your symptoms, yes. READ MORE
One would have to ask you more than a few other questions, but the simple answer is yes. To the extent of the aligning, that would depend on exactly what you would be entering their office with. READ MORE
That could be a number of things either related to you sitting or to you eating. Go in to see your Primary Physician as they will be able to check the digestive part of the issue first. READ MORE

Absolutely. The joints in your neck are the same type that are in your hands. Having them adjusted usually will relieve a lot of the tension that comes with those kinds of neck symptoms. READ MORE
Massage therapy would probably be the first place you would want to go for calf symptoms like those. READ MORE
Unless you have any open wounds, or metal inside that part of the body the risk is very low. The therapy involves putting electrical current through the body between the pads. It is beneficial for 3 reasons. 2. it will stimulate the muscles to contract so they will fatigue, 2. will help pump out inflammation from the area, and 3. the frequency that the current runs at will stimulate the body to produce endorphins in the area which will make it feel better. READ MORE
Given that there is no guarantee's in any form of healthcare, that question cannot be fully answered. Rather, I can give you the mechanisms for how sciatica(given you have a disc herniation) heals. If indeed the sciatica is due to a disc herniation, having the traction done will create a negative pressure in the disc space between the vertebrae, this will act to "suction" the disc back into it's original position. However, the body still needs to heal this as it is an injury, and you need to make sure not to get overzealous with any lifting or movements for awhile until the body does heal the damaged tissue.
