These are just a few of the type of complaints we help with:
Pregnancy Pain/Breech Babies
Chiropractic care during pregnancy can provide benefits for women who are pregnant. Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
• Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
• Controlling symptoms of nausea
• Reducing the time of labor and delivery
• Relieving back, neck or joint pain
• Preventing a potential cesarean delivery
With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth, and the crisis and worry associated with breech and posterior presentations may be avoided altogether.
Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) and, therefore, results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby. The technique is known as the Webster Technique.
Chiropractors provide safe and effective treatment for conditions that are related to problems with muscles, tension, and nerves within the neck. There are seven cervical vertebrae in the spine. One or more of these vertebrae can become misaligned due to injury, excessive physical force or exertion, and sometimes even from stress. Once a misalignment occurs, an irritation of the nerve roots in the neck can sometimes cause a constriction in some of the blood vessels that supply the brain, commonly resulting in a tension headache.
Having neck pain can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. You forget how important your neck health is until you begin having neck pain. Your neck, also called the cervical spine, supports the full weight of your head. The average weight of someone’s head is twelve pounds, making the neck very susceptible to pain. Neck pain can be caused by many things, including sitting for long periods of time, repetitive moments, automotive accidents, and even falling.
Chronic back pain is one of the biggest problems Americans face today and affects eight out of ten people at some point in their lives. Even though back pain is common, the level of severity varies. A variety of different conditions are responsible for discomfort in different regions of your back. These include sprained ligaments, strained muscles, trigger points, arthritis, ruptured disks, inflamed joints, sport injuries, and many more. We will locate the source and can ease the uncomfortable pain you may be experiencing.
Shoulder pain is quite common and affects almost half of the U.S. population at some point in their lives. The large shoulder joint is one of the easiest to become misaligned from a fall or a weight lifting accident. Even carrying backpacks or heavy bags or pushing heavy objects may be enough to initiate shoulder pain. Although the causes may be different, many of the treatment options are similar.
Our hips are such an important part of our body. They ensure that we stand up straight, control the entire bottom half of us, and allow us to walk, run, kick, and play. Hip pain can be caused by arthritis, inflammation, trama, sciaticia,or simply just overuse. There is no reason to live in pain when there is treatment options available.
Most people experience some sort of knee pain during their lives. Whether you are growing or starting to age and get older, your knees do a lot for you every single day. Knee pain will have a negative impact on your day-to-day functions, and that is why it is so important to try to address pain as soon as it begins. Chiropractic adjustments can help sore knees and are most effective when combined with complementary corrective exercise. Knee pain is commonly caused by muscle imbalances and structural misalignment around the hip, knee, and ankle joints brought on by poor posture, overuse & repetitive stress, and physical trauma.
Other conditions also treated:
Bursitis, Tendonitis, Sprains, Strains, Muscle Spasms, Sciatica, Auto Injuries, Erectile Dysfunction, Pain During Intercourse, Incontinence and many more.
