Back Pain

The body can sustain a spinal injury from one big trauma (such as an auto accident) or by the buildup of many small traumas (such as long term unbalanced posture from working on a computer, lifting, or other activity).
Restoring normal motion and allowing the body to first heal, and then move differently, is the most effective treatment.

Neck Pain

Long term overload of the balancing muscles of the neck and back causes chronic tight muscles, as well as pulling against vertebra of the neck causing nerve irritation, headaches, and other painful stress related symptoms.
If your neck and shoulders are constantly tight, chiropractic can help. Chiropractic helps reduce and relieve stress caused by poor posture, continuous standing or sitting, repetitive motion injuries, or muscle tension from mental exertion.

Back Spasms

Just like a fever is the result of an infection and not the cause of the illness, back spasms are a symptom, not the cause of a back problem.
The spasm is caused by irritation of nerves controlling the spinal joints and discs. These are the same nerves which control muscle contraction in the back. If the nerves are irritated, they produce pain and reflex spasm. A spasm is the body's way of stopping motion to protect an injured joint.

Sciatica

Sciatica is pain in the back which runs down the back of the leg. It is caused from irritation of the sciatic nerve itself or from pinching of the spinal nerves which form the sciatic nerve.
Chiropractic care is a logical conservative approach to this condition. Reducing the irritation of the nerve by realigning the vertebrae helps many sciatic patients. Surgery is recommended when necessary, but can usually be prevented.

Whiplash

If you are involved in an auto accident you should be evaluated to determine if there is a soft tissue injury. Because the symptoms from a soft tissue injury may not show up until 3-7 days after the trauma, a thorough chiropractic examination is very important.Pain changes how a body moves, therefore after the initial pain improves, the body may adapt to moving differently. Pain medication and muscle relaxers can mask the pain, but unless normal motion is restored, body motion will be unbalanced. Left untreated, the body adapts to the unbalanced pattern of motion, creating a chronic problem.

Hand Pain

Neck problems are a common cause of pain radiating to the upper extremity (arm, wrist, and hand). The nerves which control the upper extremities begin in the neck. Structural distortions in the neck caused by chronic poor posture or prior trauma can cause a spinal distortion in the neck and compress the nerves traveling to the hand. Hand and wrist pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness of grip can result.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) usually begins with occasional hand and wrist numbness. Most people ignore CTS when it is in its early stages. Over time, the numbness persists and turns into pain and hand weakness.
People at risk for CTS include computer operators and anyone who performs a repetitive hand motion frequently. Early detection and treatment is important. Since different people have different pain thresholds, it’s best to be screened by a trained professional.
A doctor of chiropractic can help determine if a problem is on its way to CTS, or a temporary, mild ache from overuse.

DJD/ Degenerative Joint Disease

DJD (degenerative joint disease), or Osteoarthritis, is a mechanical irritation of the joint, usually due to unbalanced motion. The joint responds to the unbalanced and stressed motion with formation of bone spurs on the edges of the bone.
Maintaining proper motion through a joint can reduce this mechanical damage.
Osteoarthritis is different than rheumatoid arthritis, which is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that attacks the synovium of the joint.

Automobile Accident

If you are involved in an auto accident it is important to be evaluated to determine if there is a soft tissue injury. Symptoms of a soft tissue injury may not show up until 3-7 days after the trauma.
Chiropractors focus on proper function of posture and the spine, nerves, muscles and ligaments, so the first thing evaluated is evidence of serious trauma such as fractures, etc.
Pain changes how a body moves, therefore after the initial pain improves, the body may adapt to moving differently. Pain medication and muscle relaxers can mask the pain, but unless normal motion is restored, body motion will be unbalanced. Left untreated, the body adapts to the unbalanced pattern of motion, creating a chronic problem.
