Neck Pain/Stiffness/Arm pain
Neck pain and neck stiffness can result from tension and/or muscle strain, and commonly affects regions near the neck, including the shoulder, jaw, head and upper arms. The term "stiff" neck is often used to describe the pain that results when moving your neck, especially from side-to-side. Dr. Allison and staff effectively work to relieve your pain by freeing trapped nerves and easing stiff joints.
Carpal Tunnel can cause pain, as well as tingling and numbness in your hand, and stems from the buildup of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including incorrectly typing on a computer keyboard, as well as pregnancy. Allison Family Chiropractic's nerve release techniques help to erase the pain, while making sure it doesn't come back.
Arthritis can cause symptoms of inflammation, pain, and stiffness. There are over 100 different types of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Dr. Allison will design a specific action plan to address your pain.
Migraines are no ordinary headaches, and are often described as a vice-like squeezing within the head. People affected by migraines might also experience sensitivity to both noise and sound, as well as blurry vision and nausea. A simple chiropractic adjustment can do wonders for migraine sufferers by assuring the headaches are less painful and less frequent.
Scoliosis is defined by an abnormal curve with the spine, and can affect a wide range of ages, from young children to older adults. Scoliosis can lead to an unbalanced posture as well as back pain, and is known to get worse unless the condition is treated.
Low Back Pain
Low back pain affects millions of people each year and can be brought on by something as simple as getting out of bed. Lower back pain becomes more common as the discs separating the vertebrae lose fluid and flexibility, which decreases the cushioning separating the vertebrae. Dr. Allison's unique combination of chiropractic care and Progressive Rehab helps to restore lost flexibility and strength.
Disc Degeneration can cause a wide-variety of pain throughout the body, and often gets worse with movements such as bending over, reaching up, or twisting. The discs separate your vertebrae by acting as soft, compressible, "shock" absorbers within the spine, and can flare up in a number of widespread ways. An affected disc in the neck area may result in neck or arm pain, while an affected disc in the lower back may result in pain in the back or down your leg. A synergistic, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy effectively relieves the pain, and is available at Allison Family Chiropractic. The procedure is so pain-free that some patients have even fallen asleep during treatment.
Pain in the legs can interfere with many basic activities like running, walking and even sitting. Causes of leg pain can range from issues with the leg itself to those in the back and spine or even in the nerves! Let Dr. Allison find the cause of your pain and get you back to living!
A bulging or ruptured disc can irritate the sciatic nerve and cause pain, tingling, or numbness through the extensions of the nerve throughout the lower back and lower body. Some patients compare the pain to that of a burning sensation. A quick and easy spinal adjustment at Allison Family Chiropractic could potentially unlock your stiffened spine and joints, freeing you from pain.
Characterized by widespread bouts of muscular pain throughout the body, fibromyalgia can leave patients feeling stiff with tender points of pain, and can easily disturb sleep, increasing levels of fatigue and frustration. Dr. Allison can track down the pain and help the body get rid of it fast!
Balance and Vertigo
A balance disorder can cause an individual to feel unsteady, or dizzy. Vertigo is a related symptom in which the individual has the perceived sensation of spinning. Dr. Allison's blend of chiropractic and physical rehabilitation helps to rebalance the body, and make sure it stays on-track.
Muscle Tension is a tensing-up of the muscles often brought on by periods of stress, tension, or exercise, and can cause flare-ups of back and body pain. Dr. Allison eases the pain by helping the body ease itself back into place, eliminating pain and discomfort.
