Common Areas for Treatment


There are several types of headaches; including tension, migraine and cervicogenic. Most people experience the tension headache, which includes moderate pain on both sides of the head. It is often described as a pressure that is squeezing your head causing the pain. Migraines are more severe and are usually described as a throbbing pain. Sometimes a migraine can cause nausea, loss of appetite, and in some cases vision difficulties. If you get migraine headaches regularly, keep a record of the foods you eat.


Concussions are brain injuries that can occur when someone sustains a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. These injuries trigger a pathological neurochemical reaction in the brain and a shearing/twisting of the neuronal pathways (think of these as brain communication highways that carry out all of the brain’s functions). This phenomenon then can cause symptoms that can range from mild to complete incapacitation. Symptoms can include headache/migraines, dizziness, fatigue, cognitive difficulties, vision problems (blurriness, double vision, reading problems), brain fog, light/sound sensitivity, mood disturbances depression, anxiety), nausea and sensory overload.

Auto Injury – Whiplash

The most common auto-related injury is Whiplash, or neck strain. Whiplash is an injury to the soft tissues of the neck. Sudden backward and forward movement usually causes whiplash injury and is often the result of rear-end car crashes. A severe whiplash injury can also include damage to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles and nerve roots.

Low Back Pain

Back ache is extremely common & most people will experience some form of it in their lifetime. The way in which you use your back can determine whether or not you will have to live with back pain. Experts believe that the more stationary people are the more likely they are to experience back pains. Sitting in a car on a long commute to work and then spending your day at a desk can increase the likelihood of having pains. Overly strenuous activities like gardening, bending, or heavy lifting can cause back ache as well. With the right approach, basic back ache can be avoided.


Sciatica is associated with pain, numbness, and muscle weakness in the hip, buttock, leg, calf, and foot. The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest of all the body’s nerves. It runs from the spinal column near the pelvis down each leg and can be as wide as your thumb. Each sciatic nerve is made up of five smaller nerves that branch into the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, and foot. Sciatica occurs when this nerve is compressed, irritated, or inflamed.

Work Injury

Most work injuries are caused by overuse and repetitive stress injuries. Overtime, small tasks done with poor posture can lead to acute and chronic pain, which can result in reduced worker productivity, lost time from work, disability, and an inability to perform job tasks.


There are many kinds of athletes from runners to swimmers, from tennis to golf, and from football to boxing. In any sport you twist, turn, bend, or fall and any of these actions can injure or strain your joints, tendons, bones, and muscles. This strain goes beyond just competition and into the training regimen used to prepare, resulting in a sports injury.

Carpal Tunnel

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be a very annoying condition and is often seen in the working population, especially in people using computers or keyboards. That means all of you using the internet, too. The problem is really quite simple. The canal in the wrist that houses several tendons and the nerve going to your fingers is too tight. There is frequently a delay in making a diagnosis as the presenting history.


The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment. First the doctor determines misalignment of the sacrum. A light force is applied to the sacrum for correction. The adjustment is gentle and effective in establishing pelvic alignment. Proper alignment of the pelvis allows for a safer and more comfortable birth for both mom and baby. Although chiropractors do not turn breech babies, proper alignment reestablishes normal physiological function and may allow the baby to find the best possible position for the birthing process.

Degenerative Discs

Although there is no evidence that chiropractic care can reverse the joint degeneration that causes osteoarthritis, some studies indicate that spinal manipulation may increase range of motion, restore normal movement of the spine, relax the muscles, improve joint coordination, and reduce pain. In fact, a comprehensive review of the scientific literature suggests that chiropractic care coupled with rehabilitative stretches and exercise is an effective supplemental treatment for osteoarthritis.


Spondylolisthesis is a specific spinal condition that leads to instability. Your vertebrae are supposed to provide you with some degree of flexibility. This allows you to bend backward, forward, and side to side. At the same time, there may be some situations where your vertebrae move too much. If one of your vertebrae slips out of place, as with spondylolisthesis, this could put pressure on a nerve. This can lead to significant pain. If your vertebral discs are irritating the nerves in your back, you may be diagnosed with spondylolisthesis. X-Rays help confirm the diagnosis in this condition.

Neck Pain

Neck pain can range from minor and easily ignored, to excruciating and debilitating. When combined with other symptoms it can also indicate immediate medical attention is needed. Common symptoms of neck pain include a stiff neck with limited range of motion, concentrated sharp or stabbing pain, general soreness or tenderness, or radiating pain from the neck to the shoulders, arms, fingers or head.

Chiropractors Often Utilize X-ray Studies

Based on the nature of your condition as well as a number of other factors, x-ray studies of your spine or injured body part may be indicated. Doctors of chiropractic receive over 300 hours of x-ray studies in college prior to graduating and thus are fully trained to take radiographs and identify subtle abnormalities of the spine as well as more serious pathologies.

X-rays Are Safe and Provide Valuable Information
X-rays are a relatively safe and cost effective way to view the structure and general condition of the spine. They can reveal spinal regions under high stress and expose areas of degenerative change. This can often provide essential additional information which correlates history and examination findings allowing for a more accurate spinal analysis and a more individualized and effective treatment plan. X-rays are also useful in assessing the appropriateness of chiropractic care as they can help to rule out the existence of more serious pathological processes such as spinal fractures, tumors and infections which require immediate emergency medical intervention.

Massage therapy is the systematic and scientific manipulation and treatment of the soft tissues of the body, by use of pressure, friction, stroking, percussion, kneading, vibration by manual or mechanical means, range of motion and nonspecific stretching. Massage therapy may include the use of oil, ice, hot packs and cold packs for the purpose of, but not limited to, maintaining good health and establishing and maintaining good physical and mental condition. Massage therapy promotes mental alertness, improves circulation, improves flexibility, relaxes tight muscles, eases aches, alleviates discomfort during pregnancy, promotes faster healing of strained muscles and sprained ligaments, increases metabolism, mobilizes joints and relieves stress. Types of massages include Swedish and Deep Tissue.
