We've seen success helping the following conditions:
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care helps maintain a balanced spine and pelvis, along with an optimally functioning reproductive system, both of which are key in a healthy pregnancy and delivery. The technique is safe, effective and designed for pregnant women to keep them pain-free.
An infant’s spine can experience stressors during birth that interfere with their nervous system function and cause health issues. Regular, gentle adjustment during childhood can help your child to grow and develop to their full physical, academic and social potential.
Subluxation occurs when the spinal bones move out of their normal position and the joints in the spine have limited range of motion. This misalignment of the vertebrae can end up being the cause of many other health problems.
Bursitis and Tendonitis are both forms of inflammation. Bursitis is inflammation or irritation to the bursa, which are small sacs between bones and other moving parts, such as skin, muscles and tendons. Tendonitis is when inflammation or irritation occurs in the tendon, which are thick fibrous cords connecting muscles to bone.
Degenerative Joint Disease
Degenerative joint disease impacts more than 20 million people and is more common in women than in men. Formally known as Osteoarthritis, this disease affects the cartilage, which is the tissue on the ends of bones that meet in a joint.
Chronic headaches are a sign of an imbalance somewhere else in the body. While over the counter medications can provide short term symptom relief, they do not address the source of the issue. Uncovering the root cause of headaches is the best way to stop them from recurring.
Back pain is commonly attributed to “slipped” or “torn” discs. However, disc problems constitute only a small portion of the causes of back pain and there are plenty of non-surgical options for pain relief.
Low Back Pain
Pain in the lower back is commonly caused by problems with the disc, which is the fibrous cushion between each vertebrae. A bulging or ruptured disc can trigger pain that radiates from the low back area, down one or both legs, and sometimes into the feet.
Neck pain or discomfort is actually extremely common. The bones, ligaments, muscles and cervical discs of the neck support the head and allow for motion. Any abnormalities, inflammation, or injury can cause neck pain or stiffness.
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. It occurs when there is inflammation to the thick band of tissue running across the bottom of the foot that connects the heel bone to the toes.
Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs due to rapid, back and forth motion of the neck. This sudden force is most commonly associated with car accidents, and causes stretching and tears to the muscles and tendons in the beck.
While all spines have a normal front and back curve to them that helps distribute the body’s weight evenly, abnormal curvature of the spine is known as Scoliosis. It is a progressive, sideways curving of the spine and resembles the shape of the letters “S” or “C.”
Neck, Shoulder, Arm & Hand Pain
The most common causes of neck, shoulder, arm and hand pain are sprains and strains from sports, overexertion, or incorrect posture. Bursitis, a pinched nerve, whiplash, tendinitis, a herniated disc and carpal tunnel are also likely contributors.
Many of the injuries that occur in a contact sport, such as football or hockey, are similar to those caused by an auto accident (whiplash and concussion). When the body experiences forceful impact, the vertebrae and soft tissues can be strained and damaged.
Temporomandibular disorders, commonly called “TMJ,” are conditions that cause pain at the joint where your skull and lower jaw meet. Jaw clicking, pain, stiffness and locked jaw are all common symptoms.
Spinal Stenosis is created by the narrowing of the spinal canal and can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine. It is most common in aging spines and can result in low back pain, limping and numbness – although some cases are symptom free.
