As far as it goes, low back pain is typically best treated conservatively with an emphasis on active care. It's also so common that 1 in 3 of us have it at some point. Be it chronic or a new development, we have the treatments and skill to get you back on track. There is a wealth of evidence that supports conservative treatments like spinal manipulative therapy as a first line treatment for low back pain. After all, it's what chiropractors are best known for.
Upper Back Pain
This is another really common problem that often goes hand in hand with neck problems. We treat people with upper back and mid back pain on a daily basis with a lot of success. There are a lot of things that can cause this type of pain including chronic postural syndrome, bulging discs, and rib pain.
Shoulder pain can come from an injury or more chronic problems like rotator cuff tendinopathies or postural / scapular dysfunction. It is important to know that in most cases there are also neck issues instigating the pain. Very few cases require surgery and most respond very well to passive and active treatments.
Sciatica & Pinched Nerve
Sciatica or pain radiating down the leg is usually related to spine issues but it can come from the hip or be a completely separate condition. A detailed exam will help Dr Malone discern the difference and the most appropriate treatment.
Leg & Foot Pain
Just like arm pain, the causes and locations vary in typical patterns that an exam can highlight. Depending on the diagnosis, we can get you started on some active care and use therapies for pain relief. There are certain types of neuropathy that are resistant to physical medicine and we typically refer out. However, plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinosis are very common and best treated conservatively.
Neck pain can come from many sources, is very common and usually easy to diagnose. Be it a crick/catch, chronic postural syndrome or even bulging and degenerative discs, we have the treatments and know how to get your neck pain under control fast. The neck can be a sensitive area and Chiropractic remains one of the safest prescription treatments around.
This one comes up daily and often people had no idea that we could help. There are 18 or more distinct types of headache and an exam can shed some light on which type and if we can help. Most of the time the answer is yes. There are a lot of headache triggers and one of the biggest is the upper neck and scalp. We have great success with headaches with these kind of triggers.
This one is almost as common as low back pain is. There are a lot of different causes of hip pain. A lot of the time it is related to the low back but it can also have to do with the joint itself or an imbalance in the muscles / fascia. Either way, conservative care is typically all that is needed for great results.
Arm & Hand Pain
Arm pain comes in a lot of varieties and affects different locations. Most are easily treated. Hand pain is another one of those that has a lot of origins. The most common is carpal tunnel syndrome. The standard of care just like in other parts of the body is conservative first.
TMJ, Pregnancy, & Other MSK Pain
TMJ is often present with headaches but it doesn't have to. We often have success with soft tissue techniques around the jaw and upper cervical adjusting. We treat all the varied conditions that accompany the dramatic changes that accompany pregnancy. We also can help with conditions like fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome.
