What conditions do chiropractors treat?


Our patients seek chiropractic treatment for a variety of conditions, such as:

Back Pain: Most adults have experienced some form of back pain or strain. This is one of the primary reasons that make people decide to visit a chiropractor. Back pain can be caused by a variety of reasons. Spinal misalignments can be caused by everyday activities, sitting in an awkward position, improper spinal posture, improper lifting, or through an automobile accident or sports injury. Any of these scenarios can cause physical injury that can cause pain and discomfort.

Sciatica: One of the longest nerves in your body is the sciatic nerve. A compressed or irritated sciatic nerve can cause this disorder. Symptoms include moderate to low sharp pain starting in the lower back and moving through your hips and even below the knee into your feet. Individuals suffering from this disorder often compare the pain with that felt when an-electric shock travels through the body.

Whiplash: Whiplash is most commonly experienced when you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, and your car has been rear-ended. This hyperextension/ hyperflexion injury emanates from a rapidly whipped neck and head. The rapid forward and backward (or hyperflexion and hyperextension) movement can result in a severely strained/ sprained neck.

Degenerative Disc Disease: The aging population often becomes the victim of this disorder because as you grow older, your intervertebral discs slowly break down (degenerate) due to strain or misuse. This problem is often accumulated over the years. The discs eventually lose elasticity and flexibility, failing to cushion the vertebrae and to perform the function of shock absorption. With time, they become dehydrated and grow thinner.

Fibromyalgia: This disorder primarily affects women, constituting about 85% of the entire fibromyalgia patient population. Fibromyalgia results in chronic pain, especially in ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Sleeping and concentration difficulties often follow the physical pains, which can go to the extremes of hindering a patient from performing routine tasks. There are several, often misdiagnosed symptoms, including loss of memory, restricted range of motion, swelling, tingling or numbness, headaches and muscle spasms among others.

What does a chiropractor do?


Our chiropractic doctors offer a variety of treatments and procedures, including but not limited to:

Re-alignment: Chiropractic services consist of targeted, manual manipulation of the body that helps alleviate pain from problems of the musculoskeletal system. By restoring muscles and bones to proper alignment, a health and wellness chiropractor can provide immediate relief for many patients.

Therapeutic Exercises: Therapeutic exercise is particularly helpful for those whose pain has arisen due to an accident or a sports injury. The right kinds of exercise will improve flexibility and strength. This not only helps with pain, but can support the body in delivering complete recovery.

Neuromuscular Re-education: This advanced treatment protocol is a form of orthopedic therapy. It focuses on special manual techniques that facilitate the operation of the muscles. Within a short time, it is possible to improve sensation and responsiveness of the muscles during accident recovery.

Electric Stimulation: Direct electrical stimulation of the muscles is most commonly used when pain is directly related to muscle tension. Many people carry excess tension in the muscles that can be burdensome. With an appropriate level of stimulation, the muscles can be inspired to release tension more fully.

Ultrasound: Ultrasound is very well known as a diagnostic tool, but it can also be used directly to address pain. It uses targeted sound waves to lessen pain for a variety of chronic pain conditions. It also promotes tissue healing and can be used as an adjunct to athletic injury recovery.
