If you suffer from any of the following conditions, chiropractic care can help detect the cause of your pain and release pressure on the affected nerve(s) to eliminate the pain and restore joint function.
- Neck and back pain
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Muscle spasms
- Restricted motion
- Scoliosis and other congenital spine disorders
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Other joint pain
When combined with other treatments such as physical therapy, massage therapy, or acupuncture, chiropractic care is even more effective.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Nerves from the spinal cord transport nerve impulses throughout your body. These nerves can become pinched due to misalignments of the spinal vertebrae or damage to the surrounding tissue. When this happens, your body does not function as efficiently and optimally as it should, and your overall health suffers.
Our doctors correct these misalignments by gently adjusting the position of the vertebrae of the spine, which relieves pressure on the nerve (nerve impingement), restores the nerve’s ability to transmit signals to the brain more freely, and enables your body to function at its highest level possible. Adjustment and treatment procedures are customized to fit the patient’s needs.
Active Release Technique
Chiropractor Active Release Technique or ART is the gold standard of soft tissue treatment for sports injuries. Injured muscles, ligament, fascia, tendons and nerves all respond extremely well with Active Release Technique treatment.
We also utilize the Graston Technique, an innovative treatment originally developed by athletes to effectively detect and treat acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. A chiropractor specially trained in this technique uses instruments designed to break up scar tissue and tensions in the fascia. Our patients have found it to speed the healing of injuries and reduce or eliminate pain. We are a preferred provider of the Graston Technique. Relieve your back or neck pain and get back to doing the things you love to do. Call us today at (216) 378-9390 or request an appointment online.
