Sports InjuriesSports injuries can occur at any age, and many athletes allow their love of the game to interfere with proper treatment and rehabilitation. Repetitive injuries can take a toll, leaving people in chronic debilitating conditions as they live beyond their ability to compete. When people do not allow themself time to heal properly and completely, they risk re-injury and/or prolonged healing. Re-injury or delayed treatment can lead to permanent damage, but proper treatment can lead to overall well-being and a long athletic career. Learn More . . .

There are several different treatments that can alleviate the pain of arthritis, as well as slow down tissue damage. Read More . . .

SciaticaSciatica is pain, tingling, or numbness produced by an irritation of the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is formed by the nerve roots coming out of the spinal cord into the lower back. Branches of the sciatic nerve extend through the buttocks and down the back of each leg to the ankle and foot. The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging or ruptured disc (herniated disc) in the spine pressing against the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve, and extended periods of sitting and standing may worsen symptoms.

Auto Accident InjuriesAuto accidents are one of the leading causes of musculoskeletal pain, where muscle tissue can be damaged by trauma. Symptoms include pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbances.

Work InjuriesMost job-related injuries are caused by falls, repetitive movements, awkward postures, reaching, bending over, lifting heavy objects, applying pressure or force, or working with vibrating tools. Manipulation therapies, such as chiropractic or osteopathic treatments, usually involve a trained practitioner performing twisting, pulling, or pushing movements to realign joints and bones. In addition to treatment, the use of ergonomic techniques can help you be more comfortable at work while reducing stress and injury caused by awkward positions and repetitive tasks. Read More . . .
