Darin Stokke's Expert Contributions
Some chiropractors do offer free consultations which usually include talking with the doctor about your health concerns to see if chiropractic would be a good fit. It also allows you to get to meet the doctor and staff and see the facility. At our office, we always offer free consultations for those very reasons. READ MORE
Absolutely! Migraine headaches are what got me into chiropractic as a career. I suffered severe migraines weekly and chiropractic corrected the issue and I've been migraine free for years! READ MORE
It sounds like a condition we refer to as torticollis which is easily treated with chiropractic spinal adjustments. When deciding on who to consult with first, always consider the least invasive treatment options first and go from there. Spinal manipulation is non-invasive and will help correct the issue not just cover up the pain. READ MORE
No, it shouldn't be. However, if you don't address the underlying cause and only treat the pain symptoms it can be. READ MORE
It depends on what is causing the limping. In many cases, joint alignment and muscle activation and inactivation are the cause of improper movement and motion. Doing a functional movement evaluation can help determine if chiropractic may hold the key in your case. READ MORE
It's always impossible to say for certain what may be causing a condition such as this without an examination. However, it does sound from your description that it may be caused from a condition such as Parkinson's Syndrome as this syndrome can cause intention tremors and shaking. READ MORE
If you are waking up with pain the cause is likely your sleeping posture or position or sleeping on the wrong type of pillow for your body type. READ MORE
"Frozen Shoulder" syndrome is really a complex disorder affecting the entire shoulder complex as well as the spine and rib cage. There is no quick fix but there is hope. The technical term is called "Adhesive Capsulitis" and occurs following long term shoulder dysfunction that was untreated or not treated properly. Deep tissue laser, kinseio taping, movement based rehabilitation, spinal and shoulder manipulation and alignment, IASTM soft tissue treatments, and muscle energy technique manual therapy all have been helpful in treating frozen shoulder. The key is getting to the cause rather than relying on injections and pills to get by. READ MORE
Anterior tibial pain is better known as "shin splints" and causes pain with standing, balancing and with locomotion. There's always a cause as the anterior tibial tendinitis is not the problem, only the symptom. Always look above and below that area at the joints to see if there is a dysfunctional movement pattern or alignment issue. A simple set of orthotics for the shoes may help. Also soft tissue IASTM treatments, laser therapy, kinesio tape and movement retraining of the joints often helps quickly and easily. READ MORE
It's difficult to determine the exact cause without a complete examination and a movement analysis. Ribs don't necessarily "slip" but they do become misaligned for various reasons. Ribs have muscles, fascia and cartilage attached to them and articulate both in the front at the sternum and in the back at the spinal vertebrae. Most often it is due to alignment issues at either location as well as muscular imbalances in the area. READ MORE
