Conditions We Treat
We treat a variety of conditions at our office in Vancouver. Some conditions we treat are neck and back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, headaches and migraines, auto-related injuries, herniated disc, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more.
Neck and back pain is mainly caused by personal injuries. These injuries can happen during an auto accident, at work or at home. Neck and back pain can be slight or severe pain in the back, and up and down the spine to the lower back area.
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes pinched, causing pain to radiate down the lower back, buttocks, legs, and feet. It is the largest nerve in the body and can become pinched due to a variety of causes, including injuries and illnesses.
Fibromyalgia affects the musculoskeletal system in adults. There is no known cause of fibromyalgia, so the condition is diagnosed through a series of specific symptoms. Fatigue, loss of energy, depression, and pain felt throughout the entire body are some symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Headaches and migraines can be mild to severe. Migraine symptoms can last a few hours, impacting the day to day life of a patient. Nerve cells in the brain and blood vessels changing are the main causes of these conditions.
Types of Chiropractic Care We Provide
We offer a variety of chiropractic care techniques, based on your diagnosis. Chiropractic adjustments, where the neck and spine are realigned, can bring relief for many of these conditions. When the neck and spine are properly aligned, the pressure is taken off of muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue; pain relief will occur.
Massage Therapy can also bring relief to those who suffer chronic pain from any of the above conditions. Massage therapists use long, circular strokes and pressure on muscles all over the body.
