Musculoskeletal Conditions 

Chiropractic and Physical Therapy has provided effective relief to millions of individuals suffering from back and neck ailments. Chiropractic and Physical Therapy 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 care. If a condition exists which is better suited for treatment by a medical specialist, chiropractors and physical therapist 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 and physical therapy every single day.

Common Injuries Treated

We 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, we routinely look beyond the actual injury and address such things as work station setup, ergonomically correct equipment, and proper work techniques. For sports injuries, we 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 and physical therapy is all about.

Common injuries treated:

  • Automobile accident and whiplash injuries

  • On-the-job and lifting injuries

  • Sports/athletic injuries

  • Slip and fall injuries

  • Chronic injuries

Conditions we can help with

In addition to musculoskeletal problems, 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.

Non-musculoskeletal conditions which studies have shown benefit from chiropractic:


  • Asthma

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

  • Dizziness and disequilibrium

  • Dysmenorrhea

  • Infantile colic

  • Low energy levels

  • Otitis media (ear infection)

  • Fibromyalgia
