Therapeutic ExerciseFibromyalgia is a controversial and complicated condition to understand. For proper diagnosis and treatment, a wide variety of factors need to be considered including “head-to-toe” joint and muscle function, nutrition, and lifestyle issues. A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurological testing, as well as other specialized tests, will help to determine the exact causes of your symptoms and your individualized treatment plan. Very often, a comprehensive treatment program addressing all of these issues leads to significant improvement. Joint and soft tissue manipulation is often very helpful in relieving the aches and pains of fibromyalgia and related conditions. Other treatment options may include therapeutic exercises, and massage therapy. These procedures, combined with nutritional and herbal medicine, and/or homeopathy constitute a comprehensive, holistic approach. Although researchers are still a long way from finding a “cure” for fibromyalgia, chiropractic care is usually very successful in the effective management of this condition.

Disc Herniation TreatmentThe disc is a small cartilage pad that is situated between spinal bones. The soft jelly like center is contained by layers of fibrous tissues. Each disc serves as a connector, spacer, and shock absorber for the spine. When healthy, discs allow normal bending and turning. Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily. This is how many disc problems begin. Because of the way each disc is attached to the vertebra above and below it, a disc cannot slip as commonly thought. However, the disc can bulge, herniate, or worse, rupture. This can be quite painful, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots, interfering with their function. Many patients have avoided needless surgery or a dependency on pain pills, by choosing conservative chiropractic care.
Chiropractic AdjustmentsJoints of the body need to move. When this movement becomes restricted and normal motion is altered several problems arise. Most commonly joint dysfunction results in pain, stiffness, muscle tightness, cartilage breakdown/degeneration, and movement compensation leading to undue stress on other areas of the body. Joint dysfunction are common in the spine and the extremities and can commonly occur with injury, poor posture, muscles tightness, scar tissue, or muscles imbalance. The doctor will assess movement of the joints to feel for areas of altered or restricted movements. Once identified, the abnormal movement can be restored with chiropractic adjustments. Whenever possible simple home exercises are demonstrated to facilitate and maintain proper motion in key areas. Underlying factors such as poor posture and muscle imbalance often need to be addressed in cases of chronic or recurrent joint dysfunction.
Nutritional ConsultationOur nutritional counseling is second to none with practical advise whether you are looking to lose weight or manage diabetes, cancer, or hypertension.
SubluxationSubluxation is a misaligned spineÂ bone (vertebrae) which causes compression, tension, irritation, and damage to the Central Nervous System. The Central Nervous System is made up of the Brain, Spinal Cord, and Spinal Nerves. The Central Nervous System totally controls all functions and healing in the human body.
Spinal DecompressionDecompression therapy is primarily used to relieve pressure on a herniated or slipped disc. Patients often complain that they have radiating pain from the lower back. After one therapy with decompression many symptoms are almost completely resolved.
