ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a condition that is normally noticed in children. Some symptoms of ADHD are impulsive behavior, difficulty concentrating, inattention, and hyperactivity. It is also a very common disorder, effecting 3-5 percent of children. That’s two million children in America! Studies have shown this disorder can be caused by an overactive nervous system, added to a decrease in the brain’s inability to filter different sights, sounds, thoughts and emotions. Chiropractic care can’t treat ADHD, but can help with the stress on the child’s nervous system. Chiropractic care can, however, remove spinal subluxations that irritate the nervous system, suggest dietary changes and appropriate changes at home to reduce susceptibility to toxic chemicals, as well as test for allergies that may be negatively affecting the immune system. The most common treatment for ADHD is Retalin. It is known to be a stimulant drug but actually has the opposite effect, and calms the mind of an ADHD patient. The issue with this, is it only masks the symptoms of the disorder, and can have detrimental effects on the brain. For a healthier, natural way to help with the symptoms of ADHD, call our chiropractors today.
Respiratory and immune system hypersensitivity is the most common cause of allergies. When the normal communication from the brain the spinal cord is interrupted, they do not function properly. Many allergy sufferers have been involved in head injuries, auto accidents, which in turn have injured their upper cervical spines. We offer upper cervical examinations to see if Chiropractic care would be a viable option to reduce your allergic reactions.
Asthma is a very common symptom treated by chiropractic. These allergic reactions to the body can be caused by the immune system or respiratory system being overly sensitive. In order for your system to work correctly, it relies on normal communication from the brain and spinal cord. So, if your neck is askew, it can create an improper balance in your system function. The great news is that we can execute an upper cervical examination to conclude if Chiropractic care can severely decrease your asthmatic responses.
Whiplash injuries caused by a car accident can be very severe and should be taken with much seriousness. Because symptoms may not show up right away, you may not realize you are as injured as you actually are. Usually, auto accident victims do not reach out for treatment because they don’t feel the symptoms immediately. One of the most common injuries to the neck is a whiplash injury. When your head is forced to suddenly move (in any direction) it can cause severe damage to the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues in the neck and the upper back.
The longer you go without seeking treatment, the more complications may arise, and the more likely they may become permanent injuries. In fact, many whiplash victims who have already settled their insurance claims after an accident, state they still suffer from the symptoms of the auto accident. So, even though you may not be in pain right now, it is better to be safe than sorry.

These symptoms are slow onset, usually starting to show in early adult years. It is a chronic condition that may last a very longtime, if not forever. Chiropractic can be considered one of best ways of treating this disorder. Fibromyalgia causes the muscles to be very tight and Chiropractic care can help prevent that as well as keeping the muscles from losing movement, and decreasing pain in the muscles.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis in the knee and hip area can include a shooting pain in the hip, groin, and thigh area. This can also lead to pain in the knee joints. Normally, the pain starts in the knees and patients do not feel the pain in their hips until later. Symptoms of Osteoarthritis usually peak when the weather is colder or when patients engage in physical activities.

Osteoporosis is a metabolic disease which causes the loss of bone tissue as well as the deterioration of bone structure. It mainly affects the bones bearing the most weight (pelvis, femur, and lumbar vertebras). When bone loss happens, it directly results in fractures of the hip and lumbar spine. Chiropractors say that Osteoporosis is most commonly developed because of lack of exercise. Consistent weight-bearing exercises helps prevent this loss of bone mass. Other Chiropractic care, such as correcting spinal misalignments and optimizing nerve system functioning, will allow your body to use proper nutrition and exercise to benefit your body, keeping your bones strong and healthy.
“Pinched Nerve" is a term used to describe a nerve that has become inflamed or irritated due to bones, joints, or muscles being in the wrong position.

Plantar Fascia is the thick band that attaches the toes to the heel bone. It runs across the bottom of your foot. If you are feeling heel pain, it could because of Plantar Fasciitis. It is most often seen in runners, pregnant women, people who wear shoes that do not support their feet, and overweight individuals. Normally, it is only a stabbing pain that happens in the heel of the foot at the beginning of the day, with the first few steps you take. Then, the pain eventually fades as you continue walking. The pain is also only, usually, felt in one foot, but it is not impossible to feel the pain in both feet.

Anything from a car accident, or a chronic problem like arthritis, can cause shoulder pain. Symptoms of shoulder pain include shoulder pain that persists (even while you are at rest), pain that lasts more than one or two days, twinges or aches in the shoulder and shoulder area, and decreased functioning of the arm. Chiropractors will usually examine the patient’s neck area because this could be what is causing the shoulder pain. It can normally be treated with non-invasive, natural healing methods like gentle manipulations, stretching and strengthening exercises.
Although it is called “Tennis Elbow", any occupation, sport, or household activity that repeatedly uses the forearm and wrist, can lead to this condition. It is most common in adults 30-50 years old, but it is not impossible to happen to people of any and all ages. People who have Tennis Elbow experience pain in starting from the outer elbow area, shooting into their forearm and wrist. They also experience weakness in their arm so it becomes difficult to hold things, turn doorknobs, and even shake hands. Chiropractic Care can help determine if a misalignment in the spine, neck, or shoulders may be causing Tennis Elbow. Chiropractors can start you on a physical therapy plan to help stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons in your arm.
Because your neck is responsible for constantly supporting and moving your head (which can be about 14-16 pounds), it often can get injured. The spinal cords in the vertebrae send nerve impulses to all areas of the body. These large bundle of nerves will run down your arms and upper back. So unfortunately, if your arm is hurting, it could be directly correlated to a problem in the neck. Some common symptoms in the arms are numbness, tingling, coldness, and achiness. Most common neck and upper back pain is caused by poor posture, stress, disc problems, and chiropractic subluxations. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or pain, call us so we can help alleviate the pain.
Because approximately 80% of people have been recorded with back pain at one time or another, it is considered the second most common reason people choose to visit the doctor’s office. Because the lower back is such an unstable part of the spine, it means it is much more susceptible to injury and pain. Sprained ligaments, ruptured disks, strained muscles, poor posture, stress, and obesity can cause pain in your lower back. In order to properly heal your back, chiropractors may simply adjust your lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis. Other treatments (muscle relaxants, pain killers, etc.) only treat the symptoms of your problems, while Chiropractic actually focuses on the problem itself! Studies have even shown that Chiropractic care is not only more effective, but also much less expensive.

Every client’s case can be different, but a Chiropractic adjustment and manipulation of the upper two cervical vertebrae can be extremely helpful!

Back and neck injuries account for almost 90% of injuries happening in the work place. The goal is to heal the injured worker, that way they can go back to their daily activities in a safest manner possible.
Many work related injuries are caused by regular, everyday activities on the job. Most occupations require a worker to do the same movements with their body, day in and day out. These repetitive motions, over time, cause the body trauma. Repetitive stress injuries (like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) are some of the most common work related injuries we deal with. These injuries are hard to indicate right away because the onset is very gradual.

Slipped Discs are used to describe discs that become herniated or bulge out between the bones. When this tear happens, it releases irritating substances, which then effect and swell this tear when it touches the nerve. Poor disc health can be related to many things such as poor posture, smoking, lack of exercise, and inadequate nutrition. Mild Slipped Disc cases may be treated by simple stretching and therapy through exercise. Advanced cases may require the same, with added mechanical or traction decompression. In rare cases, the slipped disc may be severe enough for surgery, but this is considered a last resort. Come see our Chiropractor today to talk about your options.
With a delayed onset, whiplash may not seem very severe. But it can manifest itself in a number of ways. It can create low back pain, neck pain, dizziness, headaches, upper back and shoulder pain, fatigue, and cognitive problems. Although many whiplash injuries can heal within a couple of months, more than 20% of whiplash victims continue to suffer with some level of disability or pain for many years after.

Stiffness and pain in the back created when the spine curves in an unnatural position is considered to be scoliosis. We do not know what causes this disease but it is very common in women and can begin as early as childhood. If Scoliosis is detected early, it can be prevented from worsening. In fact, only 2% of our population is directly affected. By checking your overall health and lifestyle, Chiropractors can identify some of the problems and help with spinal re-alignment. Although this may not completely cure Scoliosis, it can help, overtime, with the pain and stiffness. Come see our Chiropractor in order to help with the pain.
