I have neck pain that only occurs when I lie down. What could be the reason?
There are many aspects to take into consideration for neck pain that happens when lying down. Such things like what position are you in when laying down, do you lay on pillows, if so how many, did you have any accidents or traumas that occurred when your pain first started, etc. Getting an initial chiropractic consultation allows the doctor to go through neurological and orthopedic testing with you to determine the root cause of your pain.

I am having knee pain after dancing in heels. What should I do?
Due to the angle of heels it will be hard for your body to get used to them when you are not used to them regularly. The angle of the ankle is changed which will in then change the angles and function of the knee and the hips all the way to the neck. Proper stretching after dancing may help to eliminate the knee pain. I suggested getting an exam with a chiropractor that does myofascial (muscle work) and that will perform a chiropractic manipulation. A manipulation of the fibular head, ankle, and the hips may be able to help. With out examining the knees i can not determine the real cause, which is why seeing a chiropractor will be very beneficial to you. READ MORE
I have swelling on my lower back that has come up all of a sudden. Should I be worried?
This will all depend on what the chiropractor finds during examination. You may be referred to another place for special imaging or to get a sample tested to determine what is causing the swelling. If the chiropractor determines that it is just inflammation and no other tests are need myofascial release will help to push out the swelling and allow new blood flow to enter the area. Tapping can also be performed to allow better circulation in the area. READ MORE
My husband has a bone growth in his ankle. What should we do?
I would recommend to go see a doctor whether a chiropractor or a medical doctor and have them perform xrays to determine what the growth is and where. If he is not in pain they may decide that it can be left alone. If the bone growth is severe and is causing pain the doctors may decide to refer you to a orthopedic surgeon to have a consult on the best way to treat this problem. READ MORE
My left shoulder is broader than the right. Is this a growth problem?
This is a hard question to answer without seeing you personally. I recommend that you go see a chiropractor or medical doctor and have them evaluate you. This could be genetic, a long-term injury, nerve dysfunction, or many other possibilities. READ MORE
