What We Can Help
Studies show that 70% to 85% of people have and will suffer from back pain in their life. In fact, back pain is the third most expensive disease after heart disease and cancer. About 22 million Americans visit chiropractors annually. Of these, 7.7 million, or 35%, are seeking relief from back pain from various causes.
Many daily activities cause neck pain; carrying a purse or heavy backpack on one shoulder, cradling your cell phone between your shoulder and neck, sleeping in an awkward position, stress, auto injuries, poor posture or arthritis. You can tell you have neck pain if you feel a knot, stiffness or severe pain.
The severity of headache or migraine pain can go from mild and intermittent to episodes of exhausting throbbing, brutal agony. Recent studies have shown that patients suffering from chronic headaches and migraines may benefit more from long-term chiropractic care rather than drug therapy alone.
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint that is the most movable joint in the body. Such a mobile joint tends to be more susceptible to injury. Some common shoulder injuries include; impingements, bursitis (inflammation of a fluid-filled sac, or bursa), frozen shoulder syndrome, rotator cuff tears, and tendonitis.
The knee is one of the most commonly injured joints in the body. Whether it be a sports injury, overuse or instability symptom, Chiropractic care can greatly help. Some common knee injuries include; arthritis, bursitis, ligament tear or strain (ACL, PCL, MCL or LCL), iliotibial band syndrome, meniscal tears or strains and hyperextensions.
Chiropractic Sports Physicians are to athletes, as Cardiologists are to those with heart disease. They are specifically trained to evaluate, treat and prevent injuries and ailments that athletes often face. An athlete can be more effectively treated by a trained Chiropractic Sports Physician which is why every professional sports organization has them on their medical staff.
