Back and Neck Pain
Back and neck pain can be caused by misalignments in the spine, muscle pulls and overuse. Rest, chiropractic adjustments, hot and cold therapy and hydro massage can effectively reduce back and neck pain and decrease healing times.
Concussions cause headaches, dizziness and upper back pain. They can occur anytime the head experiences a blunt force trauma. Chiropractic adjustments are effective at treating misalignments of the cervical vertebrae, reducing pain and decreasing the severity of your headaches.
Plantar fasciitis is an injury to the ligament that runs from the heel to the toes. It causes moderate to severe heal pain. Plantar fasciitis most commonly occurs in individuals whose feet roll excessively while walking, in individuals with flat feet or overly high arches and in individuals who run long distances.
Shin splints are caused by overuse of the muscles, stress fractures in the shin bone, flat feet and muscle weakness in the core muscles and hips. They are most common in runners and individuals that lift weights. Our chiropractor treats shin splints with ice and heat therapy, physiotherapy and sports taping.
Strains and Sprains
Sprains are injuries to the ligaments. They occur when the joint is overextended or twisted. Common strains include ankle and wrist sprains. A strain is an injury to the ligaments and muscles. Strains most commonly occur in the back and hamstrings. Chiropractic adjustments, hydro-massage and physiotherapy are effective at treating sprains and strains.
Tendonitis is a repetitive motion injury. Tendonitis occurs when the joint repeatedly overused. This injury typically causes tiny tears in the ligaments, pain and inflammation. Common tendonitis injuries include runner’s knee, tennis and golfers elbow, plantar fasciitis and frozen shoulder.
