Low Back Pain. SI joint pain, or low back pain, can have a number of causes. The sacroiliac joint, or SI joint, is located at the base of the spine where the sacrum and pelvis connect to one another. Leg length discrepancies, pain or altered function of the hip, leg, and knee, and pregnancy are all common causes of low back pain.In a new study, the patients - all experiencing low back pain - reported immediate relief and experienced significant reduction of pain after chiropractic care both 48 hours and one month later. This is just one more study that has found that chiropractic is a powerful, drug-free way to treat musculoskeletal pain.
Neck pain. Whilst neck pain is less common than low back pain, millions of people experience neck pain and related arm pain at some stage in their lives and therefore seek chiropractic care. The early signs of having a problem might only present as a slight stiffness and tiredness in the shoulders. Having pain is not normal even though it is common. Neck pain can be a result of trauma, wear and tear, overuse, poor posture, or poor sleep position. A chiropractor can help eliminate the cause of the neck pain, and give you your life back!
Headaches and Migraines. Chiropractic combined with other natural therapies can provide safe, effective treatment for headaches and migraines, without the adverse effects of drugs.
Everyone gets the occasional headache, but some headaches get so bad they won’t go away. While drugs treat the symptoms, they often ignore the underlying cause of the problem. The worst headaches can be slow to respond to the intended effect of the medications. The stronger medications can have negative and long-lasting effects to the rest of your body when used for extended periods. They is why many people decide to look to other, more natural (and safer) solutions for their problem such as chiropractic.

We are asked all the time "What is Chiropractic?"
Simply put, chiropractic is the science that allows your nervous system to function at its highest potential. Yes, we said "nervous system". Not spine, not backbone, but nervous system.
A Doctor of Chiropractic gently corrects any misalignments of the bones of your spine so that your nervous system can function properly.
It is amazing what healing can take place when the correct messages are sent between your brain and the rest of your body!
Your brain is the master control of your entire body. Your brain comnmunicates to all parts of your body through the nervous system. The spinal cord, which is the "telephone wires" from the brain, is encased inside the spine. The bones of the spine can become misplaced or misaligned through various traumas in our lives, not the least of which is birth! The misaligned spinal bone, or vertebra, can press on the nerves and interfere with the signals traveling through it to and from the brain. This can result in many conditions and symptoms.
The chiropractor uses gentle pressure - gentle enough for a newborn - to help the bones of the spine align correctly and get rid of the interference on the nerves. When the "telephone lines" are open, the correct messages get through and healing and health happen!
Immunity, posture, attitude, body chemicals, and pain, can all be improved when the right messages are getting through.
