Top Health Issues

We help people with many different health issues. Here are some of the most common complaints that patients have when they come into our office.

Whiplash

id-10076578
One area of focus in our practice is the evaluation and treatment of whiplash injuries, or more precisely Whiplash-Associated Disorder (WAD).

This type of injury results from acceleration/deceleration forces to the spine and is generally associated with car accidents. Whiplash can also be sustained however from a wide variety of falls or other trauma such as sports or work-related events where the person’s head, neck and spine was jerked forcefully.

Symptoms arising from injury to the ligaments, discs, muscles, tendons, nerves and related spinal structures may include neck pain, back pain, headaches, numbness/tingling/weakness in arms or legs, cognitive difficulties, shoulder pain, loss of mobility and even TMJ.

Heel Spurs


Foot
Plantar
 (sole of the foot) Fasciitis (inflammation of tendon and muscle lining) is the most common cause of heel pain in adults. The condition is generally due to tearing of the tendon and muscle linings in the bottom of the foot from the heel bone. The symptoms often begin gradually and usually do not involve any specific injury, although repetitive strain (walking on concrete floors, etc.) is often associated. In more severe or chronic cases, the injured/inflamed fascia may become calcified, resulting in a “heel spur”.

Acid RefluxOne of the many conditions besides neck pain or back pain that responds very well to chiropractic treatment, and one that many people would not immediately associate as benefitting from chiropractic care, is acid-reflux.


While a small percentage of cases may be due to things such as tumor or birth defect, which may require surgery to correct, the most common cause of Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), is mechanical malfunction of the digestive mechanism at the Hiatal region.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the most common compression neuropathy of the upper extremity. It is caused by compression of the Median nerve as it passes through the middle of the front of the wrist and into the palm and fingers. 
Patients typically report an aching that radiates into the base of the thumb, the front of the forearm, and occasionally up into the neck and shoulder. The pain can be associated with pins-and-needles (paresthesia) as well as numbness in the thumb, middle and index fingers.
