Millions of people experience back and neck pain at some stage in their lives and therefore seek chiropractic care. Many research projects show conservative chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than back surgery. During your initial visit with us, you will receive a thorough examination to determine if you are a chiropractic candidate. If we determine you are not, you will be referred to an appropriate specialist.
Low back pain results in millions of dollars of lost work and countless suffering every day. Sometimes when a nerve is pinched in the neck it can cause aches, stiffness, weakness and even shooting pain that spreads down the arm and into the fingertips. There are many factors which can be responsible for or contribute to low back pain including improper sitting or lifting, overexertion, trauma or genetic spinal abnormalities. Chiropractic treatment has helped millions of people with low back problems by using specific chiropractic adjustments to help improve spinal function thus freeing up the nervous system and allowing your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic’s drugless approach to better health is to detect, reduce and prevent nervous system dysfunction (subluxations).
If you experience neck pain, difficulty turning your head in certain positions or a grinding sound when you turn your head, you may be a chiropractic candidate. Studies show that those patients who received chiropractic care for neck pain and other neck abnormalities reported improvement to their neck function and a reduction in their neck pain.
People commonly take pain medication to cover up these problems but chiropractic will get to your pain’s underlying cause and help ‘fix’ the problem. This oftentimes saves people from unnecessary drugs and surgery.
