Dr. Donald John Riepenhoff DC's Expert Contributions
It is safe for someone with arthritis to go to a chiropractor. In fact, it is one of the best things that you can do. After doing a detailed history and examination, the chiropractor would more than likely get a set of X-rays to determine the severity of arthritis. This will allow them to determine if there is any contraindications, and it will help them to determine the best treatment plan in your case. READ MORE
Absolutely, both can! As long as there are no contraindications, chiropractic can help a lot. In fact, the reason I became a chiropractor is that one helped me with my migraines. READ MORE

This individual should take a DETAILED case history to help determine the cause of your headaches. They should also perform an extensive chiropractic examination INCLUDING X-rays. They would perform a Nutrition Response Testing examination to determine if something else is possibly causing your headaches. READ MORE
For some people, they have pain and/or swelling in the ankle joint. There may be restricted range of motion. It may feel like the ankle is jammed or locked up. Some people experience pain in different parts of the body - the knee, hip, lower back, etc. Whenever a joint is restricted in movement, other areas have to compensate and work harder. That is where some people would feel pain and not the restricted joint itself. READ MORE
It is not recommended due to the potential of damaging ligaments and tendons. READ MORE
Depending on the specific cause, it is possible. I had flat feet that were corrected by adjustments of the bones in the feet and strengthening exercises for the muscles of the lower leg. READ MORE
