  • I have neck pain that only occurs when I lie down. What could be the reason?

    There are many reasons why this might be happening. If you are sleeping on your back your neck might be not have enough support which will put pressure on the joints in the back of the neck called Facet joints. The spinal nerves are located near these joints and if the joints are inflamed the extra pressure will irritate the nerves in the area. READ MORE

  • I am having knee pain after dancing in heels. What should I do?

    Dancing in heels can cause stress on different parts of the knee than your body is used to. There are a lot of different possibilities when it comes to what part of the knee is injured or inflamed. Generally using a cream like biofreeze can help or simply massaging the knee and surrounding muscles. You can ice the knee within the first 24 hours of injury as well. The best advice is to get the knee examined to determine the exact injury and best course of treatment. READ MORE

  • How is back soreness treated?

    Typically back soreness occurs when the muscles are working too hard. This could be an imbalance of the surrounding muscles or it could be joints in the low back that aren't working as well as they should be which causes inflammation and pain. It could also be a disc that has started to bulge and cause pressure in the area. The best course would be to get an exam so a proper treatment plan can be set up to ensure the best results.

  • I have swelling on my lower back that has come up all of a sudden. Should I be worried?

    This is something I deal with every day. There are many reasons for potential swelling in the low back. Chiropractic exams help to find the cause of the swelling and Chiropractic treatment helps to eliminate the cause. READ MORE

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

    This could be as simple as the difference between your dominant hand and your non dominant hand, or it could be as complex as nerve damage in the neck causing muscle weakness and wasting. In order to know the exact cause an exam would need to be done. Either way I work to correct the cause of the issue and have treated patients with this issue in the past. READ MORE
