Chiropractic: Symptoms & Conditions

Chiropractor for Back - Get Rid of Back Pain!

As you go through life, a slight loss of proper movement of the bones/joints can interfere with the healthy working of your spine and the nerves that pass through it. This can lead to pain! Almost everyone gets back pain at some time, but staying active, with the help of chiropractic treatment, may well be the best solution.

Common Causes Requiring a Back Chiropractor Include:

Poor posture may lead to back pain, particularly if you:

  • Spend hours a day sitting at a desk or a computer
  • Slouch in front of the TV
  • Sleep in a bed that is too hard or too soft
  • Find yourself hunching your back or shoulders in stressful situations
  • Daily activities, such as bending, lifting and twisting

Traumas such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Falls
  • Sporting injuries
  • Lifting heavy weights

As specialists in back chiropractic, we base our treatment on an accurate diagnosis of your back pain. We evaluate your medical history, including ongoing medical conditions, current medications, traumatic/surgical history, and lifestyle factors.  We set goals for the back chiropractic treatment by interpreting the patient’s pain and disability issues and activity intolerance. Patient education with the guidance of the chiropractor is important to reduce anxiety levels that often accompany intense low back pain.

Chiropractic for Neck – Don’t Settle for Neck Pain!

Today’s modern living often entails hours of driving or hunching over workstations, which plays havoc with our necks. So it is not surprising that neck pain is the second most common condition that chiropractors treat.

Typical symptoms of neck problems are caused by misalignments of the spinal segments in the upper back and neck. The neck, or cervical spine, is comprised of seven vertebrae surrounded by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. If the vertebrae is pushed out of place by poor posture, accidents or falls, or overuse, the muscles and tendons will be forced to stretch too far, causing pain and discomfort. Until the spine and connective tissues are helped back into their normal positions, the pain usually does not go away.

Get an initial consultation for our Chiropractor Neck service!

As part of your initial consultation, we will conduct a physical examination along with spinal x-rays.  This will help us fully understand the cause of your problem so the most effective and efficient chiropractic treatment, together with physical therapy, can be given.

Whether you are experiencing neck pain from normal daily life, or sustained an injury to the neck from a car accident, sporting injury, or accident at work, you would be wise to schedule an appointment for a thorough chiropractic examination.
