ChiropracticDoctors of Chiropractic are spinal health experts. When the world thinks of chiropractic it thinks of the spine, low back pain, neck pain, headaches and other spine related disorders. Since the early 1990’s the research and the evidence-based clinical guidelines have increasingly supported the chiropractic approach to non-surgical spine care.

Chiropractic is a 100 year old science, art and philosophy that focus on restoring spinal structure and function. The spine supports the body’s weight and protects the spinal cord, which is the central highway of the nervous system. When everything is working / functioning well your spine is strong and flexible. Abnormal spinal function, an unhealthy spine, leads to pain syndromes, diminished capacity in the activities of daily living and pathology.

Common signs and symptoms of an unhealthy spine:

  • Back pain or stiffness with or without leg pain
  • Spine pain or stiffness in the morning that decreases once you have moved around
  • Difficulty standing up after sitting for any period of time
  • Increased back pain with standing, sitting, lifting or sleeping
  • Inability to twist or bend to each side equally and comfortably
  • Pain in you hip, buttock, thigh, knee or foot
  • Back or leg pain with coughing or sneezing
  • Leg pain with or without numbness
  • Unbalanced posture. Your shoulder or hip may be higher on one side than the other
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, nausea, visual disturbances
  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Arm pain with numbness, tingling or weakness
  • Pain which disturbs your sleep
  • Spine pain that persists or worsens after 48 hours
  • Fatigue or irritability

The presence of these signs and symptoms suggest the spine is functioning poorly. Restoring spinal function with chiropractic care does more than helping to reduce spinal pain. An optimally functioning spine helps you be your best – wellness.

Over the last century chiropractic has evolved to include the diagnosis and treatment for dysfunction and pain syndromes of the extremities.

Common signs and symptoms of unhealthy extremities:

  • Jaw pain and stiffness
  • Shoulder pain, stiffness and weakness
  • Elbow pain, stiffness and weakness
  • Hand / wrist pain, stiffness and weakness
  • Knee pain, stiffness and weakness
  • Foot / ankle pain, stiffness and weakness
