Neck pain may begin suddenly with an auto accident or slowly with years of cumulative stresses like computer work. As it worsens, the pain may radiate into the arms or cause numbness. By gently freeing up fixated bones in the neck, we can restore normal pain-free movement in the neck and take pressure off pinched nerves.
Low back pain can stem from the discs, joints, muscles of that area or all three. The optimal management of low back pain will address the proper functioning of the low back as a whole. Sciatic pain results from pinching of the sciatic nerves which run down both legs. Gentle traction of the low back combined with chiropractic can remove pressure from the nerves and allow the area to heal.
The midback and the adjacent rib joints can be a significant source of pain. Often worse with prolonged bending forward or with deep breaths, they respond well to gentle realigning of those joints. By restoring normal position and motion, those joints can stabilize and heal.
Auto Accidents are an all too common source of chronic pain. Studies show that early treatment can relieve pain and help prevent long term chronic pain. As with any new injury, gentle treatment is essential to restore proper motion and alignment of the injured joints to allow the best healing to occur. We can bill treatment to the appropriate insurance. If the pain has become chronic, chiropractic can still help break up fibrous adhesions within the joints to relieve pain and restore lost function.
Headaches are a common source of daily pain for many. They very often stem from chronic tension due to misalignments in the head, neck and upper back that affect the muscles near and around the head. After confirming that the headaches are musculoskeletal in origin, they can be addressed by gently removing joint fixations and improving the joint mechanics in order to relieve muscle tension.
Evaluating and correcting distortions in one’s posture is an integral part of stabilizing the spine long-term. The common Forward Head Posture which tends to become more prevalent as one gets older puts additional stresses on the joints of the neck, upper back and ultimately the entire spine. By mobilizing and realigning the appropriate vertebrae and by prescribing specific home stretches and exercises, dramatic improvements can occur in both appearance and symptoms.
