Neck Pain Chiropractor

Neck Pain Chiropractor

Everyone knows that chiropractors are great at helping relieve neck pain. In my office, people refer to me as the Neck Pain Chiropractor and I love that! There are great chiropractors all over Chicago, but if you are looking to correct your neck pain once and for all, this is your place.

We take motion study X-rays to accurately diagnose why you are having neck pain. Not only is it important to see the alignment and structure of your neck, we also need to see how/if your spine is moving the way that it should. Any areas of restriction or subluxation will interfere with how your neck is working and feeling. Not only does this lead to pain and stiffness, it can affect the function of organs and tissues. For example, neck subluxations can lead to headaches, allergies, TMJ issues, sinus problems and even thyroid troubles.

What You Should Do

If you are experiencing neck pain, and have not yet been to a neck pain chiropractor, then that should be your first step. Studies show that when you see a chiropractor first, the chances of you needing costly medications or surgeries are much lower compared to if you see a medical doctor first. Time is critical when dealing with neck pain. The sooner you are able to get it checked out, the sooner you will be able to start feeling better and get the problem corrected. Personally, I find that those who wait years and years and years to get their pain checked out end up spending more time, energy and money to get it fixed.

In conclusion, neck pain can be very debilitating. It can affect all of your daily activities , from exercise, work, playing with your kids and even simple things like getting dressed or sleeping. It doesn’t have to be this way, let us help you!

Chiropractors help many people with knee pain

I love sharing success stories, here is one about a knee. A practice member who I’ve known for a while came in one day and was very stressed and concerned. After we got to talking she told me her knee was really bothering her and it was preventing her from working out. Working out is her life, she is in amazing shape and trains at least 4-5 days a week with intensity. She said she was at her wits end with her knee and was getting ready to see an orthopedic surgeon. I took a look at her knee and was able to diagnose what was going on. Continue reading

Back Pain and Chiropractic

Back Pain and Chiropractic

Most people who come to our office do so because they are experiencing back pain or neck pain that has started to interfere with their life in a negative way.

Back pain comes in many different forms: Sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, pulled muscles, sprained muscles, or even a back that is “locked” or “out”. Whatever the case may be, it is important to realize the pain you are experiencing is not the problem. Pain is just the body’s alarm system being activated to tell us there is a problem and you better pay attention or it will get worse. When we are in pain, our natural reaction is to want the pain to go away as quickly as possible because it is so uncomfortable.

I am here to tell you the “quick-fix” is not the right fix. Yes, taking pills may get you out of pain, but has the underlying problem been fixed? Remember, the pain is not the problem! If your check engine light goes on in your car, do you merely cover up the light with a piece of tape and keep driving on, or do you have a professional get under the hood to find the problem and fix it?
Chiropractors are the mechanics for your body. We figure out what is causing your back or neck pain and then we get in there and make the changes necessary to fix your problem.
