Chiropractic care isn’t just for back pain. It can also be used to cure issues with the head and neck. Chronic headaches or migraines are often the result of, or at least exacerbated by, consistent tension in the neck and shoulders. Other issues, like concussions and whiplash, can be caused by sudden trauma to the area.
This tension or trauma often results in a misalignment of the spine. Correcting the misalignment relieves the tension caused by the injury or strain, allowing the head and neck to sit properly. Through spinal manipulation, soft tissue massage, or even Cold Laser Therapy, Dr. Phil can free you of the burden caused by chronic head pain.
The health of your hands and feet are vital to your daily life. Issues such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Plantar Fasciitis can significantly inhibit your ability to perform essential tasks, from typing, grasping, or carrying to walking and standing.
The pain resulting from these issues can be effectively managed through chiropractic care. With spinal manipulations as well as corrections in alignment and posture, you can regain your mobility and independence. In more serious cases, Dr. Phil may also recommend the introduction of orthotics to offer additional support.
Many things can cause disc herniation, from sudden traumatic injuries, like those suffered in a car accident, to long-standing degeneration – possibly due to poor posture or being overweight. When cracks occur in the tough outer layer of the intervertebral disc, the soft, gelatin-like material inside begins to push outward, causing a bulge or herniation.
While severe cases of herniated disc may require surgery, many can benefit from non-invasive chiropractic treatment like spinal manipulation, disc decompression, and therapeutic exercises. Dr. Phil will customize a treatment plan tailored specifically to you, your lifestyle, and your level of physical activity.
