Common Conditions Treated
While chiropractors may be most often thought of for treating back and neck pain, research studies underscore the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for a wide variety of disorders. The chiropractic profession is recognized as a valid first-line treatment option for many health conditions. As chiropractors, we believe our job is to correct neurologic and musculoskeletal malfunction, to reduce and eliminate pain, and to promote wellness. Here are some common conditions treated by chiropractors:
Tennis elbow is a painful condition that develops from certain repetitive arm motions. As with other types of tendonitis, chiropractic treatment can alleviate the pain of tennis elbow and help prevent it from returning.
An injury to the structures of the wrist can have a disabling impact on daily life. Because chiropractors specialize in disorders of the musculoskeletal system, we can help diagnose and treat many types of wrist pain with noninvasive techniques.
Tech Neck/Text Neck
Heavy technology use can stress your muscles and spine, resulting in “tech neck” or “text neck.” This can result in headaches, stiffness, and even arthritis and breathing difficulties. Chiropractic can reduce your risk of tech neck and treat its effects.
Sprains And Strains
Sprains and strains are common injuries to the soft tissues in the body such as the ligaments, muscles and tendons. If you’re experiencing symptoms of a sprain or strain, we can help diagnose the condition and relieve symptoms.
Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the passage through which the spinal cord or nerves run. When there are symptoms, they can range from mild to debilitating—but chiropractic care can help you feel better and stand straighter.
Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tissue that attaches your muscles to your bones. Left untreated, tendonitis can lead to chronic pain and further injury, but chiropractic care can help you heal naturally.
When a nerve is pinched, you may feel pain, tingling, numbness or muscle weakness. Chiropractors aim to identify the source of the problem in order to provide treatment that can relieve pressure on nerves.
Chiropractic is an effective treatment for sciatica—pain due to a pinched sciatic nerve. Up to 40% of people suffer from this condition at some point, but chiropractic care can alleviate the pain and make you less prone to sciatica in the future.
Osteoarthritis Of the Spine (Spondylosis)
Over 80% percent of adults over the age of 40 show evidence of osteoarthritis, or degenerative changes to the spine, on X-rays. Osteoarthritis of the spine can't be reversed, but chiropractic care can slow down its progression.
Neck pain is second only to lower back pain as the reason for seeking chiropractic care. Unfortunately, the incredible flexibility of the neck that allows us to move our head freely also makes the neck more susceptible to injury.
Joint pain can keep you from enjoying many activities, but chiropractic treatment can provide relief and help you stay active. It may even slow the progression of joint damage.
Golf elbow, a form of tendonitis, can be painful and restrict range of motion. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help alleviate symptoms—and the sooner you are treated, the better your chances of a full recovery.
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue that supports the heel and foot. It can be intensely painful and may cause difficulty standing or walking. The good news is that plantar fasciitis often responds well to chiropractic treatment
Introduction to Common Conditions Treated
Chiropractors focus on how disorders of the spine, muscles and nerves affect overall health. Many people are surprised by the wide variety of conditions that chiropractors treat.
Posture problems such as swayback, hunchback, flatback syndrome and forward head posture can result in pain, loss of function and injury. Chiropractors treat conditions caused by poor posture and help you maintain better posture and a healthier spine over the long term.
Forward Head Posture
When you habitually carry your head forward, it can stress your bones, muscles and ligaments, triggering headaches and limiting mobility. Take a simple test to see if you have forward head posture and check out these exercises to correct it.
Lower Back Pain
Low back pain is the number one reason people seek chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatment can help back pain sufferers return to normal function while avoiding potentially dangerous pain medication.
Pitcher's elbow is a common overuse injury that can result from repeated overhand pitching. It causes pain, swelling and reduced range of motion, but chiropractors can treat pitcher’s elbow using safe, noninvasive techniques.
Hip pain prompts many people to visit the chiropractor. Chiropractic care has been found to be effective for helping alleviate hip pain due to restricted joint motion, arthritis, sports injuries and other causes.
Chiropractors are trained in safe and noninvasive methods to treat a variety of conditions related to knee pain. Our goal is to get to the root of the problem while alleviating pain in the knee itself.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition of the wrist and hand caused by repetitive motion. It leads to more missed workdays than any other work-related injury—but chiropractic treatment can often help.
If you suffer from frequent headaches, here’s good news: Chiropractic treatments have been shown to be effective in relieving pain and other symptoms from migraines and other types of headache.
Chiropractors are extensively trained in the complex relationship between structures of the back and how they can affect the rest of your body. We can help restore your back to health and keep your spine functioning smoothly.
Bulging & Herniated Discs
Bulging and herniated discs can be very painful. Chiropractors can help diagnose disc conditions and create a treatment plan to decrease your discomfort and improve the health of your spine and related nerves.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degeneration of the spine can start in our 30s, and by age 60, 90% of us have it. Chiropractors can help relieve pain from degenerative disc disease, detect it before it shows symptoms, and help reduce its progression.
