Neck Pain

Instead of masking neck pain Chiropractic reduces the symptoms of neck pain by correcting the cause. Your neck has two important functions: to allow normal movement of your head and to balance and support your head (which may way as much as a 10-13lb bowling ball!)

Mid Back Pain

Mid back pain is often the tragic result of uncorrected trauma.Mid back pain is one of the most common complaints that patients report when they first visit the office of a chiropractor.

Lower Back Pain

A common pain-sensing nerve of the spine is located in the facet joints, two interlocking joints at each disc level that are located to the left and right behind the disc.

Whiplash

Whiplash type injuries may occur with car accidents, but may also occur with sports injuries to the head and neck and even with slips and falls.

Rehabilitiation

Your overall health is always impacted when muscles, tendons, or ligaments of the spine are damaged, whether through work injuries, automobile collisions, overexertion, repetitive motion, or because of prolonged inactivity.

Reduction of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue occur with joint injury whether spinal or extremity. Joint injury can by caused by repetitive motions, improper sitting, and overexertion in addition to traumatic reasons such as slips, falls, and accidents.

Sports Injuries
