To help all of our patients, we treat the following conditions:
Headaches can range in severity from dull to downright debilitating and affect as much as 90% of the American population. Unfortunately, headaches and migraines can be somewhat elusive because there are several different kinds, as well as numerous triggers that vary from person to person. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one way to manage not only the symptoms but the source of some headaches.
The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.
Also known as a neck sprain or neck strain, whiplash is a soft-tissue neck injury that happens when your head is suddenly and forcefully thrown backward then forward. By experiencing such unexpected force, whiplash can harm the muscles, nerves, ligaments, vertebrae, and disks in the neck and spine. Whiplash often occurs during rear-end car accidents, sports accidents, or other trauma, and is characterized by a number of symptoms that either develop immediately or shortly after the initial injury or impact.
Shoulder pain is a very common condition and affects almost half of the U.S. Most patients feel some sort of pain, limited range of motion, an inability to engage in activities of daily living (ADL) or something more serious as a permanent disability.
Pain in any area of your spine is considered back pain. The spine consists of a column of bones or vertebrae held together by muscles, tendons and ligaments separated by shock absorbing disks. Chiropractic care is beneficial for many different conditions, not just back pain. However, many patients initially visit chiropractors seeking relief from back pain. It is reported 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time.
TMJ is an abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint which connects the mandibular, or your lower jaw, to the temporal bones of the skull. The TMJ is one of the more unique joints within your body as it allows you to move your jaw forward, backward, and side to side so that you can chew, talk, sing, yawn, and more. This joint can be found just in front of your ears on both sides of your head.
Knee pain is increasingly becoming a more common problem in society. It is a complaint we see frequently. The most common complaint associated with knee pain is considered the normal “wear and tear.” Another ailment that affects the knee is osteoarthritis. The symptoms and progression of osteoarthritis and knee pain can be reduced through our individualized approach to chiropractic care.
CTS is a problem of the median nerve which runs from the forearm into the hand. When there is excessive pressure in the wrist, it causes swelling of the median nerve. This small area called the carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel at the wrist made up of bones, soft tissues, nerves, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. When the median nerve which runs through this tunnel gets compressed it causes pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the hand and wrist which radiates into the forearm. The carpal tunnel is the most common area that gets compressed in both the hands and feet.
Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down one or both legs. The pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, like “pins and needles” or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity from mild to severe, and frequency may range from occasional to constant.
