Neck Pain

Neck pain is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people. It can happen to anyone, at any time and it's often difficult for sufferers to find relief from their symptoms because many common treatments have side effects or don't work as well on necks which are particularly susceptible due the fact they contain more muscles than other areas in our body. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.

Low Back Pain

Living with lower back pain can be one of the most debilitating and frustrating experiences. It affects your ability to work, exercise, and enjoy life in general. You may feel like you’ll never be able to get things back on track again. Luckily there is a solution! Chiropractic care for low back pain has been shown to help people live their lives again by alleviating pain and increasing movement.

Headaches

It is estimated that around 31% of the U.S population suffers from some form of headache disorder, and about 10 million Americans each year seek medical care for chronic headaches. A chiropractor understands how spinal misalignment affects our neurological system so they work closely together through clinical care while also focusing on correcting any muscle imbalance present which causes turbulence along nerve endings leading up into your brain triggering all sorts of unwanted responses such discomfort associated w/neurontin placement cure headache.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition that affects the sciatic nerve and causes severe pain in your lower back and legs. It can be caused by a herniated disc or spinal stenosis, which are both conditions that affect the spine. The good news? We have helped many people recover from this debilitating condition with our chiropractic care services!

TMJ Symptoms

Anyone seeking chiropractic treatment for TMJ disorder is familiar with the painful and unpleasant symptoms that this disorder can cause. TMJ disorder is a common condition that can hinder day-to-day activities such as drinking and eating. The good thing is that people suffering from TMJ dysfunction rarely must consider extreme measures such as surgery to relieve pain and ease the symptoms. Joint disorders are among the many issues that a qualified chiropractor may be able to help.

Shoulder Conditions

If you experience pain when moving your shoulder, whether a tingling sensation or a dull ache, you should address the issue before it turns into a bigger problem. The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in your body. It is surrounded by tendons and nerves that, due to numerous factors, can get inflamed and cause chronic pain. Although shoulder pain affects millions of people worldwide, that doesn’t mean you have to live with it.

Pregnancy

Women go through emotional and physical changes during pregnancy. Among the physical effects, many suffer hip, neck, and lower back pain brought on by the increased pressure on muscles. Chiropractic care has proven to be an excellent way to ease pregnancy discomfort without the need for medications or invasive procedures. Chiropractic care decreases muscle tenderness and adjusts spinal misalignment to stimulate physical and emotional well-being.

Herniated Disc

Vertebral discs are tiny but essential parts of our spine. There are many reasons why the vertebral discs can herniate (push outside of their zone) and put pressure on spinal nerves, however they don't have to. Discs are full of nerves and disruptions in the tissue can cause severe pain. Instead of treating your condition with pain medications and home remedies or committing to painful surgery, consider the benefits of chiropractic treatment for a herniated disc
