ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has a profound effect on the lives of an increasing number of children and their families in Fairview. This chronic condition begins in childhood and often continues to impact a person throughout their adult years. The constant inability of a person suffering from ADHD to pay attention and control their impulses can be incredibly distressing and disruptive.  Many people have found improvement with ADHD utilizing chiropractic care.

Back Pain

Pain along the spinal column in your back is usually caused by subluxations, or misalignments of your vertebrae. A small misalignment can cause pain by causing pressure on nerves. Left untreated, these subluxations can cause muscle spasms and increasing pain. Chiropractic adjustments properly align your spine so that pressure on joints and nerves is released. It is a direct treatment for the cause of the pain, not a temporary relief like pain relievers or massage. If you are experiencing back pain visit us today. 

Carpal Tunnel

This condition is most commonly associated with people who are constantly using a computer. Typing is a motion that, when performed repetitively and with poor posture, can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Symptoms include pain, numbness, weakness, or a burning sensation. The nerves in the fingertips travel through the wrist, up the arm, and into the neck. The spine is the center of the nervous system, and the pain in your hands and wrists can be relieved by your chiropractor with concentrated spinal and joint adjustments. 

Concussion/TBI

A concussion is a blow or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Also called a mild traumatic brain injury, a concussion can result from a car wreck, sports injury, or from a fall.

Disc Injuries

Intervertebral discs are positioned between the vertebrae in the spine. The outside of a disc is made from cartilage, and in the center is a jelly like solution. These discs serve many purposes, including allowing movement of the spine, creating space between the vertebrae, and acting as shock absorbers. The gelatinous middle allows the disc to compress and expand based on impact and movement. Trauma to the spine can cause the discs to herniated, bulge, become displaced (slipped disc), or even rupture. Trauma or direct injury to the area is not the only cause, however. As we get older, the discs can begin to weaken and dehydrate. These conditions can put pressure on the nerves around the spine and cause pain. 

Foot Pain

Did you know that your foot is composed of 26 bones that form two crossing arches of the foot. The ankles of your foot are formed by the interaction of the foot and your lower leg. The bones of your foot are held together with ligaments. The foot muscles along with a tissue known as plantar fascia provide secondary support. There are also fat pads in the foot to help with weight-bearing and absorbing impact. When you experience discomfort or pain, that’s an indication that something is wrong. How and when that occurs, can often help in determining the cause and severity of the condition.

Headaches

Many people believe that headaches are caused by loud noise, being tired, or being stressed. While these are all factors that can lead to headaches, the direct cause is tightness in the neck and shoulders. The tightness can cause misalignments in the vertebrae of your neck, resulting in pain. 80% of all headaches originate from the neck. With a typical cervicogenic (neck origin) headache, a person usually feels pain starting at the base of the skull which radiates into the temples, eyeballs, and forehead. Massage of the neck and shoulder muscles can release tension, and a chiropractic adjustment can realign the vertebrae in your neck. Chiropractic can help eliminate the cause of your headaches rather than offering a temporary relief from the symptoms. 

Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common and often debilitating discomfort that can result from various causes, including injuries, overuse, or underlying medical conditions. It can significantly impact one’s mobility and quality of life, making it essential to seek timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment to address the root cause and alleviate the pain. Management strategies may range from rest and physical therapy to more advanced interventions like surgery, depending on the severity and nature of the knee pain.

Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a condition in which the nerves of the extremities become damaged. According to John Hopkins Medical, there are over 100 types of neuropathy with a variety of symptoms and causes. Different types affect different nerves, including motor nerves, sensory nerves, and autonomic nerves. Each type causes a different presentation of symptoms.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition that results when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated. Bulging discs, spinal subluxations, and muscle spasms can all cause increased pressure on the sciatic nerve. When this happens it causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the lower back and leg. To properly treat sciatica the cause of the condition needs to be diagnosed and properly treated. Your chiropractor can help you do this.

Scoliosis

The issue of scoliosis involves a disrupted curvature of the spine. The spine is built up of intervertebral discs, which are positioned between the vertebrae. The outside of a disc is made from cartilage, and in the center is a jelly like solution. These discs serve many purposes, including allowing movement of the spine, creating space between the vertebrae, and acting as shock absorbers. The gelatinous middle allows the disc to compress and expand based on impact and movement. Trauma to the spine can cause the discs to herniated, bulge, become displaced (slipped disc), or even rupture. Trauma or direct injury to the area is not the only cause, however. As we get older, the discs can begin to weaken and dehydrate. These conditions can put pressure on the nerves around the spine and cause pain, and can therefore lead to scoliosis.

Shoulder Pain

Pain within the shoulders is usually caused by subluxations, or misalignments of your vertebrae. A small misalignment can cause pain by causing pressure on nerves. Left untreated, these subluxations can cause muscle spasms and increasing pain. Chiropractic adjustments properly align your spine so that pressure on joints and nerves is released. It is a direct treatment for the cause of the pain, not a temporary relief like pain relievers or massage.
