Neck pain can be caused by a fall, a car accident, sleeping wrong or from poor posture, especially if you sit a lot at home, work or school. Chiropractic offers a drug-free approach to alleviate your neck pain. If you have been injured, proper rehabilitation is essential to a full recovery and to prevent or reduce the risk of chronic neck pain.
Low back pain has many causes including trauma. Many patients injure themselves while lifting improperly or lifting something too heavy. Others have had a fall of some kind. Posture is always a concern with low back pain. Most patients have very weak core muscles which lead to inefficient mechanics causing your muscles to have to work harder leading to strain, sprain, bulging or herniated discs.
Sciatica or leg pain usually in the back and/or side of the thigh and calf can be caused by muscle spasm, a disc or joint irritation. These can cause irritation to the sciatic nerve. Buttock pain is usually present as well as low back pain.
Subluxation pain can occur in the neck, low back, sciatica and/or mid back. It can be initiated in many different ways, but all are accompanied by a poor mechanical and structural relationship between vertebral segments in the spine. Chiropractic adjustments correct these mechanical and structural faults allowing the body to heal and return to a normal state, which is full and pain-free movement.
Shoulder pain can be from a rotator cuff injury, spasm, strain, sprain, trigger points, tendinitis or bursitis. Gentle mobilization of the involved joint along with therapy modalities help promote healing and a return to a normal full and pain-free range of motion. Exercise and stretching are always part of the recommended rehabilitation.
