Neck Pain/Headache Relief with Chiropractic Care
Most people associate Chiropractors with LowBack Pain; however, Neck Pain and Headaches/Migraines are also frequently treated in our office. Tension in the muscles of the neck is often
caused by Subluxation, which is a slight misalignment of the vertebrae of the spine. When a Vertebra of the Neck is Subluxated, it can put pressure on the Nerves and Blood Vessels of the Head and Neck that exit the small Foramina(holes) in the Neck Joints.
Pressure on the Nerves or Blood Vessels can lead to symptoms of Muscle Tension, Headaches, Fatigue, Pulsation, Hand Numbness/Tingling and more. A Series of Chiropractic Treatments can correct the Subluxation and Relieve the Pressure on the Nerves/Vessels.

Shoulder/Rotator Cuff Injuries and Chiropractic
Rotator Cuff/Shoulder injuries are rapidly becoming one of the most frequent conditions treated by Chiropractors. As we as a Society have become more Technological, we have developed a tendency to slump forward and roll our shoulders toward the front to accomodate many devices(Laptops, Smartphones, Tablets, E-Readers).
Forward rotation of the shoulder joint makes the shoulder more susceptible to pinching under the acromion(tip of the shoulder) and straining of the shoulder musculature/ligaments due to abnormal forces on the joint. Chiropractic treatments can restore proper alignment of the shoulder joint and relieve the stress on the surrounding tissues.
Patellar MisAlignment and its Role in Knee Pain
Even the most physically fit athletes are susceptible to Knee Pain. This joint experiences a tremendous amount of stress from even the most mundane of tasks(Walking Downhill, Climbing Stairs). Even a slight misalignment of the Patella(Kneecap) can have serious consequences.
The most common complaint is pain just below the kneecap, or a feeling of pressure behind the knee. If left untreated, this misalignment will wear out the cartilage of the knee and potentially lead to Meniscus/Ligament tears. Chiropractic care can help restore proper alignment and prevent/treat even the most serious of Knee Conditions.
Carpal Tunnel, Sciatica and other Neuropathies
Treat the Problem at the Source! Treatment for many Neurological Disorders such as Carpal Tunnel and Sciatica often involves removing essential ligaments and bone to relieve pressure on the Nerves causing the pain. However, the problem is more commonly what Chiropractors call a "Double Crush" Syndrome.
"Double Crush" Syndrome is when a nerve is pinched in the joints of the spine, which weakens the signal of the Nerve and its ability to withstand pressure further down. When the Nerve passes through another area of tension, such as a wrist in a patient that types all day, it cannot overcome this small level of stress and produces pain.
Surgery often corrects only one of the trouble spots, leaving the patient susceptible to future recurrance. Chiropractic can safely treat all areas of Restriction/Pinching at once and provide long-lasting relief of pain.
