What We Treat
Responsive patients won't want to wait for an area of their body to be exacerbated with pain due to physical demands, stress and improper diet. Pain is the last symptom of something being wrong for a period of time, so health maintenance is the key to avoiding it. Wellness Care is a proactive approach to your health.
One of the more common diagnosis of back pain is strain to the muscles or sprain of the tendons and ligaments to this area. The symptoms remain local and do not travel. They are usually due to improper posture, unsuitable repetition, stress and inadequate diet. Back pain can be treated by adjusting, corrective exercises/stretching, improved diet and stress relief.
One of the most common diagnosis of neck pain is strain to the muscles or sprain of the tendons and ligaments to this area. The symptoms remain local and do not travel. They are usually caused by improper posture, unsuitable repetition, stress, and inadequate diet. Neck pain can be treated by adjusting, corrective exercise/stretching, stress relief, and improved nutrition.
Headache / Migraine
Contributing factors for headaches include: improper posture, stress, diet and sedentary lifestyle. One of the more common types of headaches is Cervicogenic/Tension, meaning pain originates in the neck and drives into the skull. If this muscle is strained due to improper posture, stress, and inadequate diet, it will pull on your nervous system, causing multiple issues like restrictions. Migraines are another type of headache which can be treated with adjusting to correct restrictions.
Improper posture while working, studying, watching tv are the foundations for this problem. When you are hunched over a computer or phone, certain muscles are being overused and strained, while other muscles are inhibited, which is creating an imbalance in the body. This imbalance sets the foundation for dysfunction. This condition can be treated via Chiropractic adjusting, corrective exercising/stretching, adequate diet, and stress relief.
Pediatrics / Geriatrics
Children’s bodies are in a constant state of change, which makes them more susceptible to subluxation. Chiropractic work can remove these interferences to guide ideal performance of a child’s nervous system.
As we get into our older years, the body starts to degenerate. With this, we encounter a number of problems, which include joint subluxation. These can be corrected via light manual adjusting, activator, and drop table.
