Conditions We Treat

Neck Pain

While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury

You might find that the range of movement in your neck is limited due to irritation and stiffness in your neck and shoulders, in some cases you may experience arm discomfort, pins & needles and numbness.

Associated conditions include:
• Whiplash associated disorders
• Shoulder, elbow, wrist pain
• Headaches including migraines
• Jaw (TMJ)
• Cervicogenic/BPPV dizziness
• Disc herniation

Back Pain

Your spine will support the majority of your body’s weight and it is integral to motion and efficient function. The discs, joints, muscles and nerves work together to absorb stress and maintain the body’s strength and power.

People who experience pain in their lower and mid back will notice discomfort when sitting, standing and getting in and out of seated positions, stiffness and tension when the body is at ‘rest’ (morning/evening), pain at certain ranges of movement and/or leg pain, pins & needles and numbness

Associated conditions include:
• Pelvic pain/dysfunction
• Knee, ankle and foot pain
• Disc herniations

Posture

Posture is the way that the body supports muscle tension against gravity

Dysfunctional movement and compensation patterns are common with poor posture and can contribute to back pain, spinal dysfunction, joint degeneration, rounded shoulders and a potbelly.

Associates conditions include:
• Forward head posture
• Hump at the base of the neck (dowager’s hump)
• Rounded shoulders
• Increased mid back curve (hyperkyphosis)
• Tilted pelvis (forward/backward relative to spine)
• General pain
