Conditions We Treat

01

Back Pain

Lower back pain can be scary. It can range from being just a small nuisance, to something so debilitating you cannot perform daily activities. The worst is the nocturnal back pain that prevents you from sleeping. The first key in treating lower back pain is figuring out exactly what is going on. This is accomplished by taking a detailed history, performing a detailed physical examination and neurologic examination. There are many causes of low back pain including conditions that require an immediate referral, such as cancer, cauda equina syndrome, fractures, and more. Patients with lower back pain must have an accurate understanding of their condition for treatments to be most effective. That said, most causes of back pain are mechanical in nature. "When you hear footsteps in the woods, think horses not zebras" is a medical expression to say common things happen commonly. 

Chiropractic care aims to unlock the fixated joints that is causing you pain. Therapeutic massage/stretching is performed to reduce muscle guarding and splinting. This is also performed by our chiropractors, but massage can be beneficial if the muscles are extra tight. Acupuncture aims to reduce inflammation and get the muscle to release from the "inside" of the muscle belly, versus from the "outside" of the muscle when massage is performed. 

02

Neck Pain

Much like back pain, neck pain can be just "tightness" or it can be so painful you can't lift your head off the pillow, or turn your neck to drive. There are many causes of neck pain, some that are very serious and require immediate referrals. But most neck pain is postural, staring at a phone or computer all day, sleeping incorrectly, etc, or  a sprain/strain from a whiplash or even just turning your neck too aggressively. For acute neck pain, extra care is taken to make sure the minimum force is used to achieve results. Chiropractic care is fantastic for acute neck pain. The acute relief is often instantaneously. The acupuncture will help relieve the muscle tension from the inside of the muscle and reduce inflammation. Massage will be helpful to further reduce muscle tension. Chronic neck pain is generally treated more aggressively, of course, to the patient's tolerance. 

03

Extremity Pain

Extremity pain refers to hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists. Extremity pain can be a minor annoyance, to something debilitating and requiring surgery. We treat rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulders, bicep tendonitis, tennis elbow, ulnar neuritis, hip labral tears, hip arthritis, knee meniscus injuries, chronic ankle sprains, and more. We offer a full range of services for your extremity pain. From acupuncture to decrease swelling, massage to relax adjoining soft tissue, and chiropractic services with therapeutic exercises and neuromuscular rehabilitation to increase flexibility and strengthen ligament injuries. 

04

Headaches

More people complain about headaches than any other medical ailment. There are approximately 45 million Americans complaining of headaches each year. That is one in every six people or 16.54% of the population. Headaches are a common condition that is treated with chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage. Most headaches that come from the back of the neck, up the base of the skull, typically on one side, and radiate into the side or front of the head typically respond best to care. Patients also often have jaw pain or tightness on the side of the headache that is also relieved by chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage- or any combination thereof. 

05

Nerve Pain

We treat all sorts of nerve pain. Sciatica, Brachial Plexus Pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Piriformis Syndrome, and many others nerve disorders are caused by pressure or entrapment of a nerve. Most of these conditions are caused by inflammation of a nerve, either by compression in your wrist with carpal tunnel syndrome, a tight muscle around a nerve like Piriformis Syndrome or Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, or by a disc or surrounding structures compromising the nerve. These conditions can be treated and managed with chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage. Many conditions can be nerves that seem like muscles. For example, that pain you get when you sit for a long time in the back of your hamstring, usually on one side, when you drive for a long time. Nerve Pain. Sciatica actually. That mid scapular pain that won't go away no matter how much you massage it out...nerve pain, often part of cervical radiculopathy. Be treated by practitioners that understand your symptoms.
