Back & Spinal Pain
The care that you give your spine directly effects your overall health. We use modern chiropractic technology and exercises to remove subluxations causing any form of back pain. When people visit chiropractors for back pain they can avoid undergoing back surgery and taking medication. Both of these treatments for back pain are risky and costly to the individual and insurance providers alike.
Headaches & Migraines
Even small chiropractic adjustments can help regulate blood flow to the brain. Decreased blood flow to the brain often results in headaches or even migraines. Simple adjustments can often eliminate this. Research shows that spinal manipulation – the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.
A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.
With age we lose motion in our hips. This leads to pain and discomfort. Our treatment is designed to restore motion which will alleviate the problem. Leg and Hip pain are most commonly caused by subluxation of the spine. This can irritate the nerves causing pain and muscle spasms. Your hips and legs support the entire body and give you strength, stability, flexibility, and mobility. For this reason there is a high amount of stress put on these body parts. Hip pain can sometimes be confused with back ache because of where the spine connects with the pelvis.
Neck & Shoulder Pain
Small adjustments in your neck can have a large impact on the tension in your neck and upper back muscles reducing and eliminating pain and discomfort. There can be many contributing factors to neck pain, such as:
- Wear and Tear
- Poor Posture
They can ultimately lead to pain due to injury of the structures of and surrounding the spine, such as muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, discs blood vessles and nerves.
Aside from physical adjustments we recognize and focus on areas in your life where stress is coming in. Once we have identified the sources, we approach each one to eliminate the factor.Chiropractic care and stress management care present procedures that are conservative and effective in disease prevention and holistic care. Both of these health systems do not use drugs or surgery. This reason alone has caused the increased popularity of these systems. In addition, Chiropractic and Stress Management care emphasize more responsibility in the healing process on the part of the patient.
Sports injuries, today are not just limited to professional athletes or boys who participate in school sports programs. Today, a large number of people of both sexes and all ages are regularly participating in sports and fitness activities. There are women playing traditionally men’s sports such as soccer, basketball, and kick-boxing. The vast majority of both sexes play golf, tennis, basketball, and/or participate in aerobic activities like running. Regrettably, risk of injury is always a possibility with any sports activity. In the fast paced world of sports mechanical breakdowns of the body are more and more common. Whether it is muscles, ligaments or tendons, we pride ourselves in providing solutions quickly to get you back out on the playing field.
Vertigo & Dizziness
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Kenneth Stillwell has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special “blueprint” exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Kenneth Stillwell can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Auto Accident Injury
If you have been involved in a car accident, even the smallest amount of whiplash can impact your overall spinal health. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits your specific needs. You need a doctor who focuses in the treatment and diagnosis of auto accident injuries. Usually hospitals will check vital signs, make sure there are no life-threatening conditions and release the patient with pain relief medication. They normally do not treat the underlying improper musculoskeletal biomechanics that can and often do lead to future pain. If you are still having problems, you should get a second opinion.
If your M.D. has given you pills, you must understand that pills do not correct structural or soft tissue damage. There are special therapies designed for that, and we offer these modalities at our office.
