If you are visiting this site because you are in pain then please read the following information. It may change your life!
What causes neck and back pain?
The majority of neck and back pain is caused by a neurospinal degenerative disease called Subluxation (Sub-lux-a-shun).
Subluxation is a mechanical misalignment and malfunction of your spine that abnormally stresses your nerves, joints and discs.
Overtime these stressfull forces damage your nerves, cartilage, ligaments, muscles and discs.
When a critical level of tissue damage has been reached your body will initiate the first stage of the healing process called inflammation.
Inflammatory chemicals will then stimulate your pain sensory nerves.
When the pain nerve signals sent to your brain exceedes your unique pain threshold you will begin to experience symptoms.
Mechanical misalignment and malfunction also stresses your motor nerves that control your muscles resulting in muscle guarding, tension, trigger points or spasm leading to the accumulation of lactic acid which generates an aching or burning sensation in your muscles.
Standard medical care consists of taking pain killers for the pain, muscle relaxers for the muscle tension and anti-inflammatories for the inflammation.
None of which address the underlying cause: the mechanical misalignment and malfunction called Subluxation.
YOU CANNOT FIX MECHANICAL PROBLEMS WITH CHEMICALS !
Common sense would dictate that you should detect and correct the underlying cause of your pain: the mechanical misalignment and malfunction, the Subluxation.
My chiropractic care is effective because instead of treating the effects, such as pain, inflammation and muscle spasm with drugs (chemicals), I address the underlying cause of your problem, the Subluxation.
Chiropractic is the ONLY profession whose primary goal is the prevention, early detection, correction or stabilization of Subluxation.
Physical therapists, medical doctors and spinal surgeons ONLY treat the effects of Subluxation and completely ignore the cause.
In my office you can choose to receive standard hands-on Chiropractic care utilizing the Palmer method or gentle adjustments utilizing an electronic adjusting instrument.
Both are very safe and effective!
Chiropractic, Cold Laser Therapy and the Pain Neutralization Technique: The Perfect Combination
While Chiropractic care works on correcting the underlying Subluxation, the Cold Laser accelerates the healing process and pain relief without any of the dangerous side effects of drugs. Top athletes utilize the benefits of cold laser therapy. For more info refer to the cold laser section.
The Pain Neutralization Technique utilizes gentle pressure on specific neurological reflexes to "turn off" painful myofascial trigger points. This technique works best with severe chronic pain.
This powerful combination of techniques is why people travel from all over the valley to our office.
What causes joint pain and arthritis?
Shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and foot pain is also caused by mechanical problems. These mechanical problems cause tissue damage resulting in pain and inflammation. If these mechanical problems are not corrected they will cause the joint to deteriorate or degenerate over time. A process we refer to as arthritis.
Chiropractic determines the nature of the mechanical joint problem and then works to correct it. This decreases tissue damage, inflammation, pain and stops or slows arthritis.
