  • My ankle hurts even after I walk a mile. What could be the reason for this?

    There could be several issues in regards to the ankle. It could be a repetitive motion injury, misalignment leading to lack of mobility or range of motion. More severe in nature could be vascular, based on age could also be a compromise in the blood flow or venous return. Need to check that out for sure. READ MORE

  • Can a chiropractor help me with my lower back pain?

    Absolutely, based on examination, a chiropractic adjustment can help as well as posture reeducation to prevent from happening again. READ MORE

  • Can an X-ray diagnose a spinal deformity?

    X-rays can help the chiropractor identify problems the patient is dealing with and ultimately come to an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan. One benefit to using X-rays is if a suspected deformity is found, we usually find another to compensate for that deformity. READ MORE

  • I have undergone about 5 X-rays in the last 2 months for my spinal problem. Are there any risks?

    I would ask first, why were there 5 x-rays performed and the radiation is minimal for each x-ray. I would also ask what the diagnosis is based on why the doctor needed 5 x-rays. READ MORE

  • Can excess weight cause spine problems?

    Excessive weight can cause multiple issues: physically and internally. Physically additional weight puts additional stress on the spine and can alter your posture or biomechanics, which can produce pain and easier injuries. Internally adds additional stress to your organs and pathways that can also refer to the lower back or cause additional problems that may be addressed. READ MORE

  • Very tight neck

    Absolutely, having a so called "tight" neck can be a problem posturally, and regular chiropractic adjustments can eliminate any stress from the spine. Also look into soft tissue release to address muscular or tendinous structures, following an exam of course. READ MORE

  • My father is suffering from severe back pain. Can it be treated with manual adjustment of the spine?

    Severe back pain can be caused by many things. With the age considered would also need to include furth testing like x-rays or possible lab tests to rule out things like fracture or prostate involvement. With those considered and not the cause then based on diagnosis adjustments and even soft tissue work can help. Based on cofactors like arthritis or stenosis may require a longer treatment plan. READ MORE

  • Why does my back crack so much during an adjustment?

    The noise you hear is gas leaving the joint itself and sometimes, when we adjust the spine, we are looking for the most restricted or causing issue. But each vertebrae have several joints, in between, above and below the next level in the spine. So it sounds like multiple levels or even multiple joints at same level. READ MORE

  • Back exercises after adjustments?

    This will depend on what the actual diagnosis is. Certain general stretches, but as there is a specific diagnosis, we can isolate those particular areas. For example, if there is a spondylolithesis, we would not want to add additional flexion to that joint. READ MORE

  • My mother has developed a problem of shaking hands. What could be the reason behind it?

    If the shaking is involuntary, then based on examination, there is most an underlying neurological disorder. This also may require further evaluation or even imaging to make sure, nothing is missed. READ MORE

  • My left shoulder is broader than the right. Is this a growth problem?

    As we grow, no one is the same and usually arm or feet are slightly different. If there is a restriction within the shoulder girdle, this can be corrected and most often can be a postural issue, unless noted as a deformity. READ MORE

  • Experiencing numbness and pain after elbow fracture treatment. Why is this happening?

    As the area continues to heal, inflammation can still be present causing other irritation. Also as the elbow heals, muscles and tendons can be overactive causing impingement on the ulnar nerve. This can be corrected with soft tissue release and other therapies. READ MORE

  • Do chiropractors typically take x-rays?

    It is common for chiropractors to take x-rays. I do not order x-rays for everyone, but based on extensive history of complaint, or nature of an injury, and examination findings, an x-ray may be relevant or not. Usually, will take an x-ray for common ground if I know I would like other imaging to be done. READ MORE

  • My back hurts when I sit down. Why?

    When you attempt to sit down you are flexing the spine and putting pressure on the abdominal muscles. This in turn can alter your posture and find the underlying issue with muscle compensation. Also with any movements of the rib cage and diaphragm can add additional pressure or pain. Several issues this can cause and safe to say get an examination to find where problem is. READ MORE

  • Can't turn head right after alignment

    I would go back and let the doctor know that new symptoms began and may need to have a further examination to see what is going on. After an accident, problems can persist if not corrected or not finishing a rehabilitation program. READ MORE

  • Pain years after spinal fusion surgery

    Many spinal surgeries have complications later on even after successful rehab. What can happen is any stability from the levels involved, our bodies with compensate to the surgery and may lead to early arthritis or degenerative changes in other levels. Also with the fusion, this may lead to altered movement patterns leading to compensatory range of motion and that can also lead to pain. Even after surgery, based on examination can still be treated. READ MORE

  • Sharp, shooting pain in my right leg

    Pain shooting down the back of the leg is known as sciatica. Sciatica can be caused by different things like disc or nerve irritation from the lumbar spine or different entrapments, where muscles are overactive and putting pressure where the sciatic nerve travels. Examination can tell what it is caused by and either way can be addressed in the office. READ MORE

  • Is scoliosis preventable?

    There are several types of scoliosis, including functional and non-functional. It is more common in children and the best way to stay preventative is regular adjustments every 3 to 6 months as they are under 10. After they cross 10 years, as they enter puberty and begin to grow, based on what is found on examination, they may require more treatments, but include exercises for home to decrease any further progression, if scoliosis is found. READ MORE

  • Do chiropractors offer free consultations?

    Absolutely, consultations are always free and I am also willing to look at paperwork, imaging, and even laboratory results. READ MORE

  • I had back surgery. Should I see a chiropractor or avoid it?

    There would need to be a consultant with the nature of surgery and possibly imaging to see results. I have given treatment many after surgeries to make sure the body is stabilized and moving properly despite going through rehabilitation. Most often, I co-manage my patients after surgery. READ MORE

  • Can a chiropractor relieve muscle pain?

    After examination, we can see what muscles are causing the pain or see what function is lost. There are many techniques to relieve muscle pain, and depending on injury, almost always will have some rehabilitation with treatment. READ MORE
