Advantage Chiropractic Sport and  Spine Rehab A Natural Way to Better Health and WellnessChiropractic has provided effective relief to millions of individuals suffering from back and neck ailments. Chiropractic has also provided relief from many other musculoskeletal complaints ranging from knee and ankle problems to carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. In fact, musculoskeletal pain or discomfort in any area of the spine or extremity is a candidate for safe, natural, noninvasive chiropractic care. If a condition exists which is better suited for treatment by a medical specialist, chiropractors are fully trained to identify such conditions and make the appropriate referral. However, most patients suffering from musculoskeletal complaints can and are successfully treated with chiropractic every single day.

Common musculoskeletal conditions treated

  • low back pain
  • neck pain and whiplash injury
  • sciatica and disc herniation
  • headaches and migraines
  • work, auto, and sport injuries
  • sprains and strains
  • arthritis
  • carpal tunnel syndrome

Common Injuries Treated

Chiropractors commonly treat all types of injuries and recognize the unique findings associated with each. For example, it’s important to understand that auto injuries often involve a delayed onset of symptoms which commonly surface weeks and even months post-accident. In work injuries, chiropractors routinely look beyond the actual injury and address such things as work station setup, ergonomically correct equipment, and proper work techniques. For sports injuries, chiropractors often check for biomechanical and muscle imbalances as a routine part of the treatment plan. Treating the whole person and optimizing health is what chiropractic is all about.

What is Naprapathy?

Naprapathic treatment utilizes specialized soft tissue techniques to restore resiliency to abnormally tensed muscles, their fascia and shortened connective tissues. When these tissues become tensed, chronic pain may ensue and normal body functions can become impaired. It is essential to address this soft tissue component to balance and stabilize joint surface relationships, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of manipulative therapy.

Non-Musculoskeletal Conditions Treated

In addition to musculoskeletal problems like carpal tunnel, sciatica and whiplash, chiropractic treatments have also been shown to benefit many individuals suffering from “medical” ailments such as chronic ear infections in children, menstrual pain and irregularities in women, and arthritis in the elderly. Although chiropractic care is not a specific form of treatment for such conditions, research has shown that many “medical” conditions can be caused or aggravated by irritation to spinal nerve roots which share an intimate relationship with the spinal structures. By restoring proper nerve functioning by normalizing spinal structure and function, we believe some individuals suffering from these “medical” ailments can obtain partial and in some cases, full relief.
