Neck Pain and Headaches
Chronic neck pain and headaches are two of the most commonly treated conditions that chiropractic helps with. There are many studies showing that Chiropractic adjustments help alleviate neck pain and headaches quickly with low associated costs.
Chronic back pain is one of the biggest problems Americans face today. Back pain actually affects eight out of ten people at some point in their lives. Even though back pain is common, it is not all the same. Many different conditions can cause back pain and cause different areas of the back to hurt. These include sprained ligaments, strained muscles, trigger points, arthritis, ruptured disks, inflamed joins, sport injuries, and many more.
