Sciatica is a pain in the sciatic nerve, which runs from your lower back down through each leg. It’s often caused by a herniated disk, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis, resulting in sharp, shooting pain, tingling, or numbness. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive approach to managing sciatica. Our chiropractors employ spinal adjustments to correct misalignments, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve. These adjustments can enhance mobility, reduce inflammation, and promote natural healing.

While chiropractic care isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, many individuals find relief and improved functionality through this holistic approach. It’s like giving your spine a tune-up, helping you get back to enjoying life without the nagging discomfort of sciatica.

Back Pain and Headaches

Back pain and headaches are common ailments that can disrupt daily life. While various factors contribute to these issues, chiropractic care offers a holistic approach that alleviates discomfort. Our chiropractors focus on the spine, as misalignments can lead to nerve interference, causing pain. Through gentle adjustments, they will realign the spine, promoting proper nerve function and restoring balance.

In the case of back pain, chiropractic adjustments enhance joint mobility and reduce muscle tension. This not only alleviates immediate pain but also addresses the root cause for long-term relief. Similarly, headaches often stem from tension or misalignments in the neck and spine. Chiropractic care can effectively relieve this tension, reducing the frequency and intensity of headaches.

Neuropathy, a condition causing nerve damage, often leads to pain, tingling, and numbness. While traditional medical approaches focus on symptom management, chiropractic care offers a holistic alternative. Our chiropractors believe that misalignments in the spine can contribute to nerve interference, exacerbating neuropathic symptoms. Through targeted adjustments, our chiropractic care aims to restore proper spinal alignment, potentially alleviating pressure on affected nerves.

These adjustments may also enhance nerve function and communication throughout the body, providing relief for neuropathic discomfort.

Auto accidents can wreak havoc on the body, leaving victims with more than just dented fenders. Beyond the visible injuries, the sudden impact can cause musculoskeletal issues that may not be immediately apparent. Chiropractic care emerges as a valuable ally in the aftermath of such collisions.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays have revolutionized diagnostic imaging in the field of chiropractic care, offering a clearer picture of the spine’s structure and function. These advanced images enable our chiropractors to precisely assess misalignments and target specific areas for adjustment. The digital format not only reduces radiation exposure but also allows for quick analysis and easy sharing of results.

Our chiropractic work complements digital X-rays by addressing musculoskeletal issues identified in the images. Through precise adjustments, our chiropractors can realign the spine, alleviate nerve pressure, and promote overall well-being. This targeted approach enhances the effectiveness of treatment plans, fostering a more personalized and efficient path to pain relief and improved mobility.

Chiropractic FAQs

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a natural way of caring for your health that focuses on addressing the root causes of physical issues rather than just alleviating symptoms. It’s based on a simple but powerful principle: when your spine and nervous system are functioning optimally, your body has a better chance of healing itself because the spine houses the control center for your nervous system, governing movement, sensation, and all functions throughout your body.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic adjustments aim to restore your body’s innate ability to be healthy. When your nervous system is functioning optimally, every cell, tissue, and organ in your body is designed to resist disease and maintain good health. Chiropractors work to identify and remove any interference, often caused by misaligned vertebrae (subluxations), in your nervous system. By improving spinal function, you enhance nervous system function. The goal is to eliminate any barriers hindering your body’s natural healing process through specific chiropractic adjustments. A healthy spine combined with a balanced lifestyle are the keys to achieving optimal health!

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

Absolutely! Chiropractic has an outstanding safety record. It adopts a conservative and natural approach to health, steering clear of invasive procedures or addictive medications. Proven safe from birth all the way through late adulthood. You can see this in the stark contrast in malpractice rates between chiropractors and other healthcare professionals. Chiropractors’ malpractice premiums are a mere fraction of those for medical doctors.

Do all patients get the same treatment?

No, each patient is unique. The doctor assesses each individual’s specific spinal issue and tailors a personalized course of care. Every chiropractic adjustment builds upon the previous one. The recommendations are based on years of training and experience, ensuring that each patient’s care plan is distinctly tailored to their needs.

Can I adjust myself?

It’s highly advised against. Chiropractic adjustments involve a precise force applied in a specific direction to a particular joint. This makes it nearly impossible to self-adjust safely, accurately, and effectively. While it’s possible to maneuver in certain ways to create a “popping” sound, it’s usually counterproductive and can even be risky. Adjusting the spine is best left to the professionals!

Why do chiropractors take x-rays?

X-rays help reveal the internal structure and alignment of the spine. They also help identify any underlying disease processes or disorders, such as spinal deterioration, arthritis, abnormal development, bone spurs, disc issues, tumors, or spinal curvature. X-rays serve as a blueprint for correcting the spine back to optimal health and alignment.

What causes the sound during an adjustment?

Adjustments don’t always produce a sound, but when they do, it’s often described as a spinal “release” or “popping” sound. This sound occurs when gas rushes in to fill the partial vacuum created as joints are slightly separated. It’s painless and completely harmless.

What insurance do you accept?

We’re partnered with various providers, including United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Medicare, and others too. Since specifics can vary, we verify your insurance during your initial visit. This way, you’ll have a clear understanding of what your insurance covers and any potential out-of-pocket costs before starting care.

Can a person who had back surgery see a chiropractor?

Absolutely. Unfortunately, many individuals who undergo spinal surgery find their original symptoms return months or even years later. This is known as “failed back surgery syndrome.” Chiropractic care may help prevent the need for additional surgeries. In fact, if chiropractic care is sought initially, back surgery can often be avoided altogether.

Does chiropractic work for all types of health problems?

While chiropractic care may not address every health issue, it has shown success in treating a wide range of health problems beyond just back-related concerns. This is because of its positive impact on nerve system function. When your nerve supply is functioning optimally, your body’s natural healing capacity can improve a variety of health issues.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical intervention designed to address hormonal imbalances that often occur during certain life stages, such as menopause or age-related declines in testosterone.

For women experiencing menopause, the decline in estrogen and progesterone can lead to disruptive symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings. HRT steps in by providing a carefully calibrated dosage of these hormones, effectively alleviating these distressing symptoms and restoring a more balanced hormonal environment.

Similarly, men grappling with low testosterone levels may encounter issues like fatigue, reduced libido, and mood changes. HRT for men involves replenishing testosterone, addressing these concerns, and often leading to improved energy levels, increased muscle mass, and a restoration of overall vitality.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy utilizes the regenerative properties of platelets to accelerate healing and tissue repair. The process involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, typically from the arm, and then centrifuging it to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components.

Platelets help in the body’s natural healing process as they contain growth factors and proteins that promote cell regeneration and tissue repair. In PRP Therapy, the concentrated plasma is carefully injected into the targeted area, such as joints, tendons, or muscles, where it can enhance the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

This innovative therapy has shown promise in treating a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, osteoarthritis, and even hair loss. Athletes have found PRP Therapy extremely useful in helping speed up recovery from sports injuries, as it can reduce inflammation and stimulate tissue regeneration. Additionally, PRP is a non-surgical option with minimal side effects, making it an attractive alternative to more invasive treatments.
