Live and Work Without Headaches, Low Back and Neck Pain
Lower Back Pain
Chiropractic care and therapeutic exercise is an effective treatment for low back pain. While you concentrate on your recovery, regular adjustments can alleviate pain and ensure that everything heals correctly. Specific spinal care can restore comfort, movement, balance to the nervous system and provide pain relief to function toward healing.
After neck pain, headaches are the second most common complaint from those suffering from whiplash injury. While some headaches are actually the result of direct brain injury, most are related to injury of the muscles, ligaments and facet joints of the cervical spine, which refer pain to the head.
Shoulder and Neck Pain
This complex center of nerves fees every part of your arms from the shoulder through your fingertips. If it becomes injured, pinching pain, numbness, weakness and other sensations may clue you into the fact that misalignment has taken place. Chiropractic care, along with massage, myofascial therapy and other forms of therapy can relieve the nerves of their stress.
Has Your Child Been Diagnosed with Scoliosis?
Dr. Tim Ciolkosz was trained to understand every aspect of how scoliosis affects the body. While scoliosis is a disease of the spine, it can also affect the heart, lungs, posture, physical functioning, and balance. Scoliosis is not caused by muscle tension. Studies have found that tension in the muscles arises as a consequence of scoliosis, after it has progressed to a certain point. Scoliosis is a complex three dimensional condition that causes twisting of the rib cage as well as flattening of normal curves. You can expect to be treated as a whole person – not a condition.
