Common Chiropractic Conditions

Whiplash, a common car collision injury, results from the neck’s violent snapping motion, causing overextension of muscles and ligaments, and potentially leading to structural damage like misaligned vertebrae or nerve damage. Chiropractic treatment can address both soft tissue injuries and structural damage. By realigning the spine, it relieves pressure on discs and nerves, and chiropractic massage can alleviate pain from soft tissue injuries. Consider chiropractic care before opting for pain medications or surgery post-accident.


Arthritis, caused by the wearing down of cartilage between joints, can lead to pain and functional impairment in areas like knees, hips, back, neck, and hands/wrist. Misalignment due to arthritis in one area can cause problems in another. Chiropractic treatment can alleviate arthritis pain by aligning the spine to release pressure on the nervous system and restoring proper joint movement, preventing further injury. This holistic approach aims to enhance overall well-being, offering a long-term solution compared to temporary relief from painkillers.


Joint dysfunction, often resulting from injury, poor posture, or overuse/underuse of joints, restricts movement and causes pain in the affected area and surrounding muscles. One common type, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, located at the spine's base, can be misdiagnosed as sciatica or a herniated disc, leading to low back pain and limited mobility. A chiropractor can accurately diagnose and treat joint dysfunction through targeted adjustments, restoring mobility and alleviating pain for relief.

Joint Dysfunction

Pain along the spinal column in your neck or back is usually caused by subluxations, or misalignments of your vertebrae. A small misalignment can cause pain by causing pressure on nerves. Left untreated, these subluxations can cause muscle spasms and increasing pain. Chiropractic adjustments properly align your spine so that pressure on joints and nerves is released. It is a direct treatment for the cause of the pain, not a temporary relief like pain relievers or massage. If you are experiencing back or neck pain visit us today.

Neck/Back Pain

Many people believe that headaches are caused by loud noise, being tired, or being stressed. While these are all leading factors that to headaches, the direct cause is tightness in the neck and shoulders. The tightness can cause misalignments of your neck, resulting in pain. With a typical cervicogenic (neck origin) headache, a person usually feels pain starting at the base of the skull which radiates into the temples, eyeballs, and forehead. Massage of the neck and shoulder muscles can release tension, and a chiropractic adjustment can realign the vertebrae in your neck. Chiropractic can help eliminate the cause of your headaches rather than offering temporary relief from symptoms.


Sciatica is a condition that results when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated. Bulging discs, spinal subluxations, and muscle spasms can all cause increased pressure on the sciatic nerve. When this happens, it causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the lower back and leg. To properly treat sciatica, the cause of the condition needs to be diagnosed and properly treated. Your chiropractor can help you do this.


When a nerve is squeezed or compressed it is called a "pinched nerve". This can be caused by spinal misalignments, bulging or herniated discs, or other factors. The increased pressure on the nerve causes inflammation, pain, and sometimes muscle spasms. The pressure on the nerve must be relieved in order to alleviate the pain. An examination can reveal the cause of the pain, and an adjustment can relieve the pain by properly aligning the spine and addressing the cause of the pain.

Pinched Nerve

This condition is most commonly associated with people who are constantly using a computer. Typing is a motion that, when performed repetitively and with poor posture, can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Symptoms include pain, numbness, weakness, or a burning sensation. The nerves in the fingertips travel through the wrist, up the arm, and into the neck. The spine is the center of the nervous system, and the pain in your hands and wrists can be relieved by your chiropractor with concentrated spinal and joint adjustments.

Carpal Tunnel

Fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by chronic, varied pain throughout the body and associated with factors like poor sleep, headaches, depression, and anxiety, lacks a specific known cause or cure. Chiropractic treatment offers relief by addressing potential physical, mental, or emotional triggers through examination, adjustments, and massage, promoting improved energy, circulation, and immune function to combat the effects of fibromyalgia. If experiencing symptoms, a consultation with us can establish a personalized recovery plan.


We have discussed many conditions that can be relieved through chiropractic. The best way to treat these conditions is to prevent them before they even start. Regular chiropractic visits can help to prevent physical problems and injuries from occurring. Other potential benefits of regular chiropractic visits are increased flexibility and mobility, higher level of energy, improved posture, more effective immune system, better circulation, and an overall better feeling of well-being.

Intervertebral discs, the cartilage structures acting as shock absorbers in the spine, can herniate or bulge due to trauma or age-related weakening. These conditions can pressure surrounding nerves, causing pain. Chiropractic treatment, a non-surgical alternative, can alleviate this discomfort by properly aligning the spine to relieve pressure on the nerves and discs, potentially restoring a normal lifestyle.

Disc Problems

Chiropractic treatment can help mitigate allergy symptoms by enhancing your body’s ability to combat allergies, rather than acting as a direct, short-term solution like an anti-histamine. Misalignment of the spine can stress the nervous system, which in turn impacts the immune system’s functionality. By aligning the spine, chiropractors relieve nerve stress, enabling the immune system to better recognize and react to allergens. If you’re struggling with allergies, consider scheduling a chiropractic appointment
