Carpal Tunnel

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hand due to pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. This nerve runs from your forearm through a passageway in your wrist called the carpal tunnel to your hand. It's often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself. Common causes include repetitive hand motions, wrist position, anatomy of your wrist, or health conditions.

Pain from carpal tunnel syndrome is typically felt in the hand and wrist, but it can also radiate up the forearm. The discomfort is often most pronounced in the thumb, index, middle, and part of the ring fingers. It's common for individuals to experience numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation in these areas, especially at night or early in the morning. Some people may also feel a sense of weakness in their hand or have difficulty holding objects.

We can treat carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) using a variety of non-surgical methods aimed at reducing pressure on the median nerve and improving wrist and hand function.

Disc Problems - Herniated, Bulging & Degenerated Discs

Having herniated or bulging discs refers to a condition where the discs, which are the cushioning pads between the vertebrae of the spine, start to protrude out of their normal boundary (bulging) or break open (herniated). This can occur due to age-related wear and tear, injury, or strain. When these discs herniate or bulge, they can put pressure on the nearby spinal nerve roots, leading to pain, numbness, or weakness in the areas of the body that the affected nerves serve. Common symptoms include sciatica, back pain, and changes in sensation or muscle strength in the limbs.

Herniated or bulging discs can be caused by several factors:

✅ Age-related wear and tear: As you age, your spinal discs lose some of their water content, making them less flexible and more prone to tearing or rupturing with even a minor strain or twist.

✅ Physical strain or injury: Lifting heavy objects improperly, sudden movements, or physical trauma can cause the discs to bulge or herniate.

✅ Repetitive activities: Engaging in repetitive movements, especially those involving twisting or bending of the spine, can stress the discs and lead to bulging or herniation.

✅ Poor posture and body mechanics: Poor posture or sitting for extended periods, especially with incorrect spinal alignment, can increase pressure on the spinal discs and contribute to their deterioration.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of the body and is often caused by a herniated disc, bone spur on the spine, or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis) pressing on the nerve.

The pain associated with sciatica can vary widely, from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating discomfort. It may be accompanied by symptoms like numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness in the affected leg and foot.

Kidney Problems

Kidney disease. It is has increased by 16% in the last decade, one in three Americans are at risk of developing kidney disease, As many as 2 million Americans may have some form of undiagnosed chronic kidney disease, and 1 in 3 people are at an increased risk of getting it in the future. 80-90% of cases of chronic kidney disease may go unrecognized.Kidney disease is an umbrella term used for any condition involving the kidneys that causes damage and reduced kidney function. This diminished kidney function is also called diminished kidney reserve, kidney insufficiency, or kidney failure (which technically is end-stage kidney disease).The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that are situated towards the back of the abdominal cavity, just above your waist.

The key role of the kidneys is to filter the blood by recognizing (through special sensors) imbalances within the blood and determining what stays and what does not.Chiropractors treat patients after diagnosis to help relieve joint pain, stiffness,  muscle spasms as well as reducing subluxations associated with organ dysfunction. Chiropractors have a great deal to offer ill patients by helping to restore and normalize nerve function and thereby facilitating the healing process.

Whiplash

Whiplash is most commonly received from riding in a car that is struck from behind or that collides with another vehicle or object. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments that support the spine and head can be overstretched or torn. The soft, pulpy discs between spinal bones can bulge, tear or rupture. Vertebrae can be forced out of their normal position, reducing range of motion.

The spinal cord and nerve roots in the neck can get stretched and irritated. While occupants can suffer considerable soft tissue injury, the car may only be slightly damaged.The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can cause headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulder, arms and hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, and even low back problems. As the body attempts to adapt, symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months later.

The chiropractic approach to these types of injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments to help return spinal function. After a thorough examination and case history, the doctor will recommend a series of visits to help restore proper motion and position of the spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue can often be minimized.

Allergies & Colds

Millions of people who suffer from a wide variety of conditions, such as allergies, colds, and decreased immune system function, have benefited from chiropractic care.

Why you ask?

Because chiropractic is a method of healthcare that permits your body to function at its best. That is especially important if you suffer from these ailments.Your immune system keeps you 100% natural, organic, and pure! It recognizes and destroys anything that is not supposed to be in you: bacteria, viruses, pollutants, dust, pollen, drugs, tumors, dead pieces of your own skin cells, and even artificial hearts and donor organs (Metal and plastic, however, do not trigger an immune reaction.) A healthy immune system means having a high resistance to disease and infection, gives you a better ability to deal with stress, and blesses you with greater health and well-being.

By releasing stress on the nervous system, chiropractic permits the immune system to function more effectively-something all allergy and cold sufferers need. A nervous system without stress functions more efficiently. Recent understandings in psychoneuroimmunology reveal that when the nervous system functions better the immune system benefits.Chiropractors correct the basic cause of body malfunction to improve the function of your immune system. Please note that the chiropractic approach is to remove vertebral subluxations, a common spinal distortion that puts stress on your nervous system. When your nervous system is free of stress, your body will work more effectively to neutralize the allergy causing chemicals in your environment as well as boost your immune system’s overall function.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a condition characterized by the gradual breakdown of joint cartilage, most common in the weight bearing joints of the body such as the knees, hips, and back. It is also common in the neck and hands.As the joint is broken down it can lead to joint stiffness and increased strain on the muscles in that area. Additionally, as joint function changes it can lead to movement compensations and place strain on other areas of the body.Although degenerative changes are common with age they do not automatically result in pain.

Research now shows that it is not the degeneration of the joint that is responsible for pain, but the effects the degeneration has on how the joint is functioning.We focus on restoration and maintenance of function by emphasizing joint movement and increasing the ability of the muscles to support and stabilize the affected joints. In addition, we assess how the body as a whole if functioning to uncover any other movement abnormalities that may be affecting the degenerated area.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia 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 will help to determine the exact causes of your symptoms and develop 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. 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. However, if after examination we conclude that your case cannot be helped with conservative care, a prompt referral will be made.

Headaches

80% of headaches originate from the neck. Usually an increased amount of stress and tension held in the shoulders causes contractions of all of the surrounding neck muscles.When these muscles contract, vertebrae can become misaligned causing pressure on spinal nerves, and ultimately 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.There may be several other causes of headaches, so a proper examination is needed to determine the actual cause.

Eczema

Eczema is also known as dermatitis, or an inflammation of the skin. It is characterized by itching, blisters, red bumps, swelling, oozing, scaling, and crusting. Though eczema is not life threatening, it can be uncomfortable and impact the eczema sufferer and those around the eczema sufferer.

Eczema occurs more often in people with families’ histories of hay fever, allergies, asthma. In other cases, eczema may be situational.

Choosing Chiropractic care is one way to remain proactive without subjecting the body continually to steroid (hydrocortisone) creams to relieve the itching and antihistamine drugs. Chiropractic Care may help relieve eczema symptoms and improve overall health. Most importantly, it balances the adrenals, which may be overworked for eczema sufferers.Here are some ways that Chiropractic care can benefit eczema sufferers:

Balances Hormone levels

AdrenalsIncreased Immunity

Improves Allergies

Improves Gastrointestinal problems

Hearing Loss

Chiropractic has long been associated with hearing. The first Chiropractic adjustment given in 1895 was reported to have cured deafness.This study examined the effects of a single, initial chiropractic visit on the central nervous system by documenting clinical changes of audiometry in patients after chiropractic care. The broad category of hearing loss is the third most prevalent chronic condition in older Americans, following hypertension and arthritis. Between 25% and 40% of the population aged 65 years or older is hearing impaired.Hearing impairment refers to limitation of function or raised hearing threshold (inability to hear tones at a normal level) and this implies a total or partial loss of the ability to perceive acoustic information.

The impairment may affect the full range of hearing or be limited to parts of the auditory spectrum. This impairment is expressed as decibels of hearing loss relative to the hearing of a normal population.Clinical progress suggests that manipulation delivered to the neuromusculoskeletal system may create central plastic changes in the auditory system. 

Chiropractic care may benefit hearing loss and that chiropractic adjustments to various areas of the spinal column may have an effect on central auditory processing. Cases provide support indicating that, when hearing is tested immediately after a single chiropractic adjusting visit, hearing may be improved in both ears.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system.

Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort.

You may hear a noise that sounds like you’re cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
