Chiropractic for Pain, Injuries and Accidents

Many people come to see us for relief from pain or symptoms. Some common examples include:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck pain
  • Mid back pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Low energy
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Tingling / numbness
  • Digestive problems
  • Sinus, allergies and asthma

Sometimes pain and symptoms appear after and event, injury or accident. In this case, it’s important to get checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible – not only to help alleviate your discomfort, but to deal with the problem before it becomes a much bigger health issue.

Sometimes pain and symptoms feel like they’ve just appeared out of the blue. But pain and symptoms don’t just appear out of thin air.

Pain and symptoms are simply a body signal that there is something in your body not working right.

They can often build up over time, unnoticed. If you use the analogy of the ‘last straw that broke the camel’s back’, the problem can often build up unnoticed over time, years or even decades, until the last straw when symptoms can really show their ugly head in a big way!

A symptom may be just the tip of an iceberg, with a much bigger problem lying underneath the surface.

A symptom is therefore just a symptom. It is not the cause. It is your body’s signal to you that something is wrong, like a fire alarm going off, telling you there is a fire. To deal with the problem we must put out the fire not just turn off the alarm.
