Lower back pain can come from wear and tear to joints, disc irritation or pelvic joint sprain. Compression of the sciatic nerve can cause pain to travel down the leg. Chiropractic treatment can effectively help with reducing symptoms and preventing further episodes of lower back pain.
Neck/cervical spine pain can be caused by tightness in the upper back musculature. Postural weakness is also another cause of neck pain, which can also cause headaches. Headaches can present in many forms, such as migraines, tension-type headaches and cervicogenic headaches. Tailored treatment is provided for each type of condition, with muscle strengthening and lengthening used as a part of chiropractic treatment.
Rotator cuff injuries are some of the most common presentations we see at our South Windsor clinic. Not all shoulder injuries are sports related, they can also present due to underuse/under activity of the muscles. Rehabilitation is a big component in treatment of shoulder conditions, which our chiropractors are highly skilled in.
Postural instability is a common concern for those that work in office spaces and in physical jobs. Repetitive movements and keeping your body in certain positions for long periods of time will cause certain muscles to 'switch off' and other muscles to work harder. This causes imbalances in the way joints and muscles work together. Chiropractic care can help with strengthening the correct postural muscles, and providing exercises to maintain good posture.
Some of the most common forms of knee pain are arthritis, wear and tear of the joint, sporting injuries including sprain and strain and muscle imbalance in the upper leg. Knee pain can also be a precursor to hip and ankle pain, due to many of the anatomical structures being shared between these joints. A combination of muscle work, manual adjustments and exercises is provided by the chiropractor at our South Windsor clinic.
From dancers and football players, to your regular gym goers, ankle pain is a common concern due to the number of joints, ligaments and tendons that are involved. Ankle sprains commonly present in clinic, for which rehabilitation is used to strengthen the muscles surrounding the ankle. Dry needling and sports taping are also used by the chiropractors at Healthy Backs Chiropractic Clinic.
Tennis/golfers elbow are overuse injuries in the elbow for strain or sprain of the ligaments. They typically present with localised sharp pain over the inner or outer aspect of the elbow, with tightness of the muscles in the forearm. Grip strength can be affected, as well as neurological pain into the forearm. Chiropractic treatment can help with mobilising the joint, and improving movement.
Very common in desk workers, carpal tunnel is compression of the structures passing through the wrist, causing increased pressure on your median nerve.
