We use state-of-the-art chiropractic care services to help you get to the bottom of your pain and dysfunction and find meaningful relief from whatever ails you—like these common conditions below.
Neck pain is a common cause of disability. Conditions affecting the cervical spine include whiplash, tech neck, and cervical radiculopathy. Whiplash happens when the neck is forcefully bent forward and back (often during a car accident). Tech neck causes neck strain and soreness due to prolonged flexed posture over a smartphone or computer. Radiculopathy refers to compression of a nerve root—when this happens in the neck, arm pain, numbness, and tingling can develop.
Low back pain affects about 7 out of 10 of us at least once. It's so common because so much of our modern world (e.g., chairs, heavy bags, high-stress lifestyles, sugar-laden foods, and sedentary behaviors and occupations) can strain our lumbar tissues and misalign lumbar joints. Both genetics and environment can lead to the development of common conditions such as degenerative disc disease, stenosis, osteoarthritis, spondylolisthesis, and muscle spasms. Even "non-spine related" conditions like fibromyalgia and depression can present with low back pain.
If you sustain an auto accident injury, sports injury, workplace injury, or other type of personal injury (like slip and fall), soft tissue damage is often present. Our patients often complain of muscle strains, ligament sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, runner's knee, golfer's elbow, tennis elbow, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis. Our treatment goals change depending on the stage of injury: control inflammation and reduce swelling in the early stages; accelerate tissue healing in the subacute stages, and prevent recurring problems through strengthening in later stages.
Poor posture and stress are often the cause of tension headaches, which leave people feeling like they have a tight band wrapped around their head. Migraines (believed to have a genetic basis) are severe throbbing headaches which often present with visual disturbances and nausea. Chiropractic care services, like those offered at our facility, have been shown to reduce the severity and frequency of headaches.
