Here are some of the more common conditions we routinely help our patients with.
Low back pain
Low back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care. We can help alleviate common causes of low back pain such as tight muscles, restricted joints, muscle imbalances, facet syndrome, and underlying core weakness/dysfunction.
Mid Back Pain
Common causes of mid back pain that are easily treatable are poor posture, weak muscles, restricted spinal joints, irritated rib joints, repetitive strain injuries and sports injuries. In many instances mid back pain may actually be radiating from your neck, which is why a thorough examination is always needed.
Muscles in the neck are frequently overworked, becoming tight, stiff and painful. We can help loosen up tight muscles and implement an exercise routine and postural corrections to prevent symptoms from returning.
In many cases tension from the neck due to poor posture, tight muscles, and restricted joints can contribute to the pain of a headache. Addressing dysfunction of the neck can help decrease the frequency and intensity of most headaches.
Over the course of their lifetime, one in every three people will experience knee pain. This may be due to underlying dysfunction in the ankle, hip, or low back which causes the knee to become overworked. We can help to loosen the tight muscles and strenghten the weakened areas.
Pain may be caused by dysfunction in the shoulder, neck, or midback. We thoroughly address the dysfunctions using a combination of soft tissue therapies, corrective exercises, and postural correction. This comprehensive approach quickly resolves common shoulder complaints such as bursitis, tendonitis, rotator cuff issues and more.
If you have been diagnosed with bulging discs, herniated discs, or disc degeneration we can help. Having good posture and properly functioning joints will help reduce unneccesary strain on your discs.
There are many different causes of sciatica. Effective treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis. Once the exact cause is determined, we can work with your body to alleviate your symptoms.
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Syndome
In many circumstances the pain pathways can become extra sensitive leading to chronic pain. We can help your body achieve the right balance of strength and flexibility, reducing overall stress on your body and nerves.
Wrist Pain and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
If you are experiencing numbness or tingling in the hands, we can help determine if it is coming from the wrist or originating in another part of the body. Once the origin of the problem is determined, we can help alleviate your symptoms by working on specific muscles, joints, and nerves.
Foot and ankle pain including plantar fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis occurs when the fibrous band on the underside of the foot gets overworked. Abnormal biomechanics of the foot, ankle, calf, and hamstring can lead to the development of plantar fasciitis. We can help to correct any movement dysfunctions, allowing the plantar fascia to heal.
Pregnancy Related Pain
With all the changes happening to your body during pregnancy, it is no suprise that aches and pains are common. We can help to safely and naturally reduce your pain with gentle movements, exercises, and stretches. Don't let pain ruin the joys of pregnancy.
