Conditions We Treat

Persistent pain, in whichever part of the body it may be occurring, can have a serious impact on your everyday life and without the proper treatment, symptoms can often get worse. At Northside Chiropractic we use a combination of physical techniques to alleviate the pain caused by a number of common conditions. 

We are specialists in whole-body health, with particular emphasis on the spine, nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Through detailed analysis of your most pressing issues, health history and injury history we will provide you with an accurate diagnosis and determine the root cause of your pain. Below are the common conditions we treat.

Neck pain can be caused by a number of factors ranging from nerve compression and spinal cord damage to trauma and fractures. Using a combination of chiropractic techniques such as spinal manipulation and manual therapy, we can help alleviate any pain and stiffness you might be experiencing. 

Back pain is one of the most common conditions that lead people to seek professional healthcare. It can considerably disrupt your everyday life and if left untreated, can lead to the development of depression and anxiety as a result of the sedentary lifestyle. Don’t let your daily activities, family life, work, recreation or social activities be ruined by persistent back pain.

Poor posture can have a knock-on effect and lead to many other issues including back and neck pain, spinal dysfunction, joint degeneration, rounded shoulders and a potbelly. If you don’t maintain good posture, it can not only lead to these other physical problems, but it can also affect your self-confidence and sensitivity to pain.

Whiplash is caused by a sudden and vigorous movement of the head. It’s often associated with motor vehicle accidents, but it can also arise from an impact trauma like concussion or sports/activity accidents, physical abuse and fall trauma. Treatment can help reduce pain and improve mobility with a series of chiropractic techniques. 

Even though they’re one of the most common conditions suffered by people, severe headaches can be debilitating and significantly disrupt your everyday life. Diagnosing headaches involves differentiating and determining the root cause of the problem. We work together with you to determine the root of the issue and provide a treatment plan to help you to return to carrying out your normal daily activities.

By addressing and assessing the relationship between the spine, shoulder and elbow, a chiropractor can determine the cause and help alleviate shoulder pain. Manual adjustments, activator methods, soft tissue therapy, strength and conditioning along and posture advice will all help any pain you’re feeling in your shoulder. 

Jaw pain and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, if left untreated can lead to significant health problems, including chronic pain and inflammation. Chiropractors help relieve the pressure on the jaw’s muscles with a range of treatments including muscle therapy, jaw gapping, and activator adjustments.

Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate a specific type of vertigo called cervical vertigo. Certain techniques can help return the upper cervical spine to proper alignment and also help reposition the neck and back to the optimal position, putting a stop to dizziness.

Spinal correction is a chiropractic technique used to reduce pain by releasing any pressure in the spinal joints. It can also help increase your mobility by ridding you of pain and stiffness, allowing you to use your joints to their full capacity. On top of that, a spinal correction can also help reduce inflammation and improve certain neurological symptoms by increasing the blood flow to the brain.
