What Conditions Does Chiropractic Help With?

August 26, 2015, 5:39 pm

Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Many people come to see us because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments.  Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic:

Headaches                               Chronic Fatigue Syndromeadjhands

Back and neck pain                   Fibromyalgia

Auto injuries/whiplash               Hormone Imbalances

Sports Injuries                          Digestive issues

Depression                               Allergies

Arthritis

The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals.  If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other treatment, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, chiropractic can help you on the road back to better health!

Don’t Take Arthritis Lying Down!

August 1, 2015, 7:03 pm

Years ago, doctors hardly ever told arthritis patients to “go take a hike” or “go for a swim.” Arthritis was considered an inherent part of the aging process and a signal to a patient that it’s time to slow down. But not so anymore, recent research and clinical findings show that there is much more to life for arthritis patients than the traditional recommendation of bed rest and drug therapy.

It helps maintain healthy and strong muscles, joint mobility, flexibility, endurance, and helps control weight.  Rest, on the other hand, helps to decrease active joint inflammation, pain, and fatigue. For best results, arthritis patients need a good balance between the two: more rest during the active phase of arthritis, and more exercise during remission.  During acute systematic flares or local joint flares, patients should put joints gently through their full range of motion once a day, with periods of rest.  To see how much rest is best during flares, patients should talk to their health care providers.
