Chiropractic Treatments In Southeast FL
Have you considered seeing a chiropractor? If your spinal joints don't maintain necessary movement then discs and nerves can get pinched, herniated, or bulged, and in some cases nerves can die. Lack of movement in the spine can even cause the growth of osteophytes on vertebrae. Osteophytes are boney spurs that grow as a response to decreased movement and can eventually cause the bones to fuse together. With chiropractic adjustments, you can give your body the best possible opportunity to prevent this or give your body the best chance to return to a healthy state.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about chiropractic care at Carswell Chiropractic & Athletic Performance Center, our experienced chiropractic team in Southeast FL is here to help.
What Can Our Southeast FL Chiropractor Treat?
Back & Neck Pain: Neck and back pain are both common conditions that many individuals experience. In fact, around 85% of people will experience this type of pain. This pain, when not caused by an accident, is caused by prolonged sitting, leaning forward while sitting, improper lifting, improper biomechanical movements, weak core muscles, and muscle tightness. If untreated neck and back pain has been shown to trigger other conditions such as arm pain, numbness in the arms, hands, or fingers, leg pain, sciatica, lower extremity numbness, and tingling as well as weakness. We use physical therapy, spinal manipulation, rehabilitation exercises, and more in order to help relieve the pressure on your neck and back and get you feeling your best.
Neuropathy: Neuropathy can be described as weakness, numbness, and pain from nerve damage. It's usually felt in the hands and feet.
It is described as damage to the nerves caused by nutritional or vitamin imbalances, alcoholism, and exposure to toxins. There are many physical therapies that help ease neuropathy pain. We specialize in treating the cause not only the symptom. This is why we combine nutrition counseling alongside our physical therapies to get you back on your feet.
TMJ: Temporomandibular joint syndrome can cause unnecessary pain where the jawbone is connected to the skull. This pain in the jaw can cause difficulty chewing. TMJ is caused by injury or misalignment of the teeth or jaw, teeth grinding or clenching, poor posture, stress, arthritis, and even chewing gum. We use multiple types of treatment to reduce inflammation caused by TMJ syndrome including laser therapy, soft-tissue management, and joint manipulation.
Knee Pain: There are many causes of knee pain, especially as an athlete. Injuries to the joints connecting the knees are common both in and outside the field. Other causes of pain in the knee can include surgeries, tendonitis, ACL, and knee cartilage injuries, among others. Knees are an important part of our movement and flexibility, that's why we take your treatment seriously. We use multiple physical therapies as well as laser treatments to help you prevent further injuries and help you get your mobility back.
Ankle & Foot Pain: Walking is part of our everyday life, making it easy to accept pain in our ankles and feet. However, just as there are many causes of foot pain, such as footwear, physical activities, age, weight, or overall health, there are also many solutions and treatments. We want to get you walking without pain. That's why we focus on not only treating the pain with physical and laser therapies but also on preventing future pain with exercises.
Shoulder Pain: Many athletes can suffer from shoulder pain due to overuse, repetitive motion, injury, or upper back or neck misalignments. Suffering from shoulder pain can affect an athlete's career as it causes pain and a decrease in range of motion. We work with athletes to keep them in peak performance. Having strong shoulders is important, which is why we use physical therapies alongside laser therapy & supplement counseling to give you a full treatment.
Hip Pain: Problems with muscles, ligaments, and tendons can create pain in the hips. The hips are susceptible to joint compression, tightness, and structural issues. This can lead to issues with mobility and flexibility. There are many things that can cause hip pain, including IT Band Syndrome, Bursitis, and Sprains. Knowing what causes hip pain is the first step in prevention. We combine education of the body alongside chiropractic techniques in order to aid and prevent hip pain.
Golfer's Elbow: Golfer's elbow is typically caused by damage to the muscles and tendons that control the wrist and fingers. The damage happens due to excess or repeated stress, especially forceful wrist and finger motions. The bad golfing form can worsen this. Though we have a focus on golfers, we're also familiar with tennis elbow, its causes, and how to relieve the pain. For both, we combine our knowledge of biomechanics, chiropractic care, manual therapies, and rehab exercises in order to help you prevent pain related to your sport.
Wrist Pain: Wrist injuries are among the most unfamiliar and commonly missed orthopedic injuries. Wrist pain can manifest as something weak up to searing pain. Wrist pain can be caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, and Radial Tunnel Syndrome among others. Wrist pain can typically be reduced through non-invasive, drug-free, and surgery-free options. At Carswell CAPC we use rehabilitation and manual therapies to diminish and prevent wrist pain.
Sciatica: Sciatica is one of the most common reasons why people look for chiropractic care. Around 40% of people experience sciatica pain. Sciatica is an inflammation of herniated disk on the spine. Sciatica pain affects the back, hip, and outer side of the leg. Cause of this type of pain is caused by the compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often owing to degeneration of an intervertebral disk. There are many causes of sciatica, including poor posture, disc disease, weight changes, as well as improper lifting habits. We help you prevent and lessen sciatica pain with a combination of massage and laser therapy, rehab exercises, and spinal manipulation.
