CONDITIONS YOU MAY NOT THINK OF GOING TO THE CHIROPRACTOR FOR:
Carpal Tunnel: yes we can treat this condition with manipulation of the small bones of the wrist and hand. Modalities such as ultrasound, laser, taping, splints, B 6 supplementation and exercise all can help resolve the numbness and tingling.
Tennis/Golfer’s elbow: This is caused most of the time by over use. The attachments of the muscles of the forearm become inflamed. Cross friction rub, taping, ultrasound, laser, electrical stimulation, and exercise can help speed up recovery.
Knee pain: Most knee pain is due to strains/sprains or meniscus tears, or other ligaments. If after performing an orthopedic exam we determine conservative care may benefit we may use manipulation, ultrasound, laser, electrical stimulation, and exercise.
Shoulder pain: There can be many reasons for shoulder pain. After performing a few orthopedic tests we can get a better understanding of what we can and cannot do for your condition. I personally have 3 tears in my rotator cuff tendons and was told I needed surgery, but with diligence in rehab exercises and modalities I am able to function without going through surgery.
Plantar Fascitis: Laser therapy has been shown to be very effective for this condition. Ultrasound can as well. Taping has benefits and exercise. Manipulation of the joints of the foot and ankle can help as well.
