We manage a variety of conditions.
Degenerative or age related changes, trauma, whiplash, nerve root impingement, disc bulge, joint fixation, muscular tightness, improper posture, other pathological causes.
Reduced range of motion, headaches, trigger points, anterior head carriage and forward rolled shoulders, characteristic referral pattern, possible neurological deficits if there is nerve involvement or traumatic event, focal weakness, stress management complaints, constitutional signs indicative of a pathological origin.
Pain control, normalize range of motion (ROM), balance weak / tight musculature, spinal decompression/ traction, joint mobilization, manipulation, nutritional recommendations, exercise prescription and avoidance of major pain provoking factors including coping methods with relaxation and self regulation techniques. Referral for medical management implemented if non-musculoskeletal (MSK) pathologies identified.
Joint dysfunction, spinal misalignment, scoliosis, leg length difference, inactivity, overweight, pregnancy, degenerative or age related changes,trauma, sleep deprivation, spinal overload, nerve root compression, lumbar herniation/ disc bulge, repetitive tasks, improper ergonomics, and other pathologies.
Reduced lumbar range of motion, difficulty sitting/standing/sleeping, morning stiffness, “catching” pain, segmental lumbar restrictions, muscular tenderness, sciatica, neurological deficits perhaps with numbness, pins and needles down one or both legs, constitutional signs indicative of pathological origins.
Pain control, normalize range of motion by mobilization, chiropractic manipulation where indicated, core stabilization exercises, and flexibility application, lumbar spinal traction and decompression, customized lumbar support/back brace, custom-made foot orthotics for shock absorption, strategic improvements and patient specific objectives. Referral for medical management implemented if non-MSK pathologies identified.
Degenerative or age related changes, jumper’s knee, runner’s knee, improper patella/knee tracking, patellar dislocation, meniscal damage, ligament damage and laxity, structural variance (“bow legged” or “nocked knees”), biomechanical dysfunction, repetitive occupational tasks, referred pain from multiple regions, and other pathologies.
Joint pain, swelling, redness, morning stiffness, tight lateral musculature, leg cramping, hypersensitive region over the knee cap, “crepitus” within joint, sharp pain, give way weakness, instability, loss of muscle tone.
Pain control, ultrasound therapy, soft tissue release, mobilization, proprioception training, weight loss management, endurance and muscle fiber re-organization, customized knee brace if indicated, custom-made foot orthotics as required, coping strategies and patient specific goals. Referral for medical management implemented if non-MSK pathologies identified.
Trauma, fracture, repetitive injuries, congenital abnormalities, leg length difference, low back pain, knee or hip arthritis, overweight, lossof foot arch, rigid foot arch, foot and ankle arthritis, acute or chronic venous disease, pregnancy, foot/ leg swelling and other pathologies.
Hypermobility, lack of ankle flexibility, morning tenderness, limping, numbness, discoloration, edema, redness, leg cramping, diabetic ulcers, foot deformity, and bunions.
Pain control, ultrasound therapy, muscle relaxation, joint mobilization and chiropractic manipulation as needed, custom made orthotics as required, orthopedic shoes, compression hosiery if indicated, Referral for medical management implemented if non-MSK pathologies identified.
