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.
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. Most are easily treated. The most common I see in practice is arm pain originating from the neck or shoulder. 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, in most cases, conservative first.
