Testimonials
I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

SOME CONDITIONS WE TREAT: Print E-mail

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME (CTS):

CTS is a condition that causes pressure on the median nerve - the nerve in the wrist that gives feeling, power, and movement to the hand.  The symptoms are numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness in the hand or wrist.  The problem is common in people who do "repetitive motion" tasks such as computer workers, factory workers, mail sorters, or painters. A classic sign is an increase in symptoms at night.  The key to properly treating CTS is finding exactly WHERE the pressure on the nerve is stemming from.  In many instances the wrist/hand symptoms can be caused by nerve pressure in the wrist, elbow or neck, such as in the "double crush" phenomenon.  This is why many times surgical intervention will fail to alleviate the problem.  Our office takes a multi faceted approach to these problems by using gentle adjusting techniques, soft tissue procedures, and the gentle C-Trac stretching device to relieve pressure in the tunnel.  Of course our main weapon is the DEEP TISSUE LASER which has proven quite effective in relieving the symptoms of CTS without the need for an invasive procedure.

LOW BACK PAIN - SCIATICA - DISC PROBLEMS:

The causes of low back or leg pain can be varied; including a sprain/strain,degenerative arthritis, a slipped or herniated disc, spinal bone misalignment, and other serious conditions such as infection or pathology.  A proper diagnosis is critical.  Once the diagnosis is established, a comprehensive treatment approach can be taken to address each individual situation.  Our office employs the Kennedy Decompression System, Cox Distraction treatment, gentle adjustments, EMS, deep tissue laser, and a host of other techniques to properly treat the condition. We also utilize a special blend of vitamins, herbs, and special supplements to target inflammation and hasten healing. Remeber that these conditions can take time to fix...typically from several weeks to several months.  Our goal is to achieve correction of the condition, not just cover up the pain as is done with drugs.

MIGRAINE/TENSION HEADACHES/NECK PAIN:

The mechanical causes of headache and neck pain are also varied; ranging from arthritis to misalignment, and a host of other conditions including the often overlooked "Cervicogenic" headache.  We realize that persistent migraine, cluster, or tension headaches can make life miserable sometimes.  Numerous research studies such as the Duke headache project and the Nelson Migraine study have repeatedly shown the effectiveness of Chiropractic care in managing these conditions.  In addition to our gentle techniques, we also employ the DEEP TISSUE LASER at certain accupuncture points to effectively manage and many times eliminate headaches and neck pain.

NUMBNESS/TINGLING OF THE ARMS/HANDS/ LEGS:

The most common cause of tingling, numbness, or "pins and needles" in the arms, hands, or legs is from nerve pressure or irritation somewhere along the nerve pathway. Other causes could be a change in the circulatory dynamics in the area or diabetic neuropathy.  At our office we are specialists in determining the CAUSE of these issues, and if appropriate, designing a treatment plan to relieve the symptoms.

OTHER CONDITIONS TREATED: AUTO INJURIES, WHIPLASH, SHOULDER PROBLEMS, ARTHRITIS, NECK STIFFNESS, NUMBNESS AND TINGLING, SCOLIOSIS, HIP PROBLEMS, PLANTAR FASCITIS, AND MID BACK PAIN.
