Auto Injury/Soft Tissue:
Have you been to the ER and been told no bones are broken? That's not good enough. The spinal joints and nerve roots can get stretched and irritated. Soft tissues around these areas can also be damaged. Neck ache, headache, dizziness, blurred vision, memory loss, pain in the shoulders, arms, legs, hands and lower back are a few of the problems that can occur. Also a person can experience a reduced ability to turn and bend. All of these problems/symptoms respond very well to chiropractic care. After a thorough case history and examination, the doctor will determine if your condition will respond to chiropractic management. If so, the doctor will recommend a series of visits to help restore proper motion and position of the spinal structures. Should you be involved in an auto accident, please do not delay in consulting with your chiropractic doctor.
Low Back Pain
Low back pain results in millions of dollars of lost work and untold suffering. Eight out of ten adults suffer with low back pain by age forty-five. There can be many causes: Improper sitting, lifting, over-exertion, trauma or inherited spinal abnormalities. The chiropractic approach to healing is to help restore a more normal motion and position of affected spinal structures. This is done by chiropractic manipulation, there by correcting the underlying structural cause of the problem and not just treat the symptoms with pain pills, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Sciatica is a severe pain in the leg caused from compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerves are the largest nerves in the body, and about the size of your thumb. They are found down the back of each leg. These nerves can become irritated or can be affected by inflammation of nearby soft tissues. When this occurs, doctors call the condition sciatica. The bulging or herniation of the soft discs which separate each spinal bone can cause this problem as well. Injury to the sciatic nerve and its branches result in pain that may extend from the buttock down the back of the leg. Other symptoms may include foot drop, (the inability to flex the foot), loss of sensation over the leg and foot, bladder dysfunction, impotence and loss of bowel control.
The chiropractic approach is to use carefully directed and controlled pressure to remove the interference from spinal structures. This procedure is called an "Adjustment" or "manipulation". Sciatica, like other health problems that can be traced to the spine, and more often than not, respond favorably to chiropractic care.
Sports Related Injuries:
Many sports-related injuries involve the spine and the soft tissues surrounding it. Spinal injuries can restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes, shorten endurance and decrease performance. Chiropractic care helps restore normal function to spinal joints that are fixated and not moving properly. Pain relief and restoration of joint mobility needed for good performance can be achieved through quality chiropractic care. Remember --- sports injuries among youngsters are often ignored as "growing pains". Regular chiropractic checkups can help avoid problems seen late in adults. Whether you golf, play tennis, bicycle, or bowl; the best treatment for sports injuries is prevention and spinal balance. We also treat injuries to wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, and ankles.
