Conditions Treated At Your Chiropractor Staff
At the near Dayton OH, our Dayton chiropractor, Dr. Briggs, has experience working with people from all walks of life: infants to seniors, athletes to expecting moms, and anyone in between. Our patients have a variety of acute and chronic conditions that respond well to the holistic techniques.
Disc Bulge or Disc Herniation
When a gel-filled spinal disc is compressed in a forceful or unusual way (either repeatedly or in one sudden incident), it may protrude out of place (disc bulge) or rupture in its outer layer and leak out its inner fluid (disc herniation). We also treat degenerative disc disease or gradual progressive damage to a disc due to chronic strain.
Sciatica—compression of the sciatic nerve in your low back—often occurs after a disc herniation or bulge. This and other spinal nerves can become compressed by muscle spasms, narrowed joint spaces, bony spurs, or tumors. Sciatica leads to buttocks and leg pain, as well as weakness, numbness, and tingling in the affected leg.
Back Pain and Neck Pain
Back pain and neck pain are among the leading causes of disability. They are often caused by joint misalignments, osteoarthritis, stenosis, fibromyalgia, tech neck, whiplash, and other conditions.
A personal injury may occur on the sports field, in the gym, in an auto accident, at work, or simply while you're out and about in the community. It may occur due to overuse, poor training, poor ergonomics, or because of an acute incident such as a fall or collision. In addition to the above conditions, a personal injury may also include muscle strains and tears, ligament sprains, tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tech neck, and others.
Common Chiropractic Treatments for Common Conditions
There's no one-size-fits-all treatment plan for our patients with their specific health conditions, particularly because so many individual factors go into the type and presentation of their condition. We frequently customize the following services to help manage the above conditions:
- Chiropractic manipulations: adjustments are used to realign joints, heal injured tissues, and trigger whole body pain relief
- Acoustic compression therapy (aka Piezo wave therapy): pressurized sound waves stimulate cellular healing within connective tissues
- Corrective exercises: we teach exercises to increase tissue healing, core stability, muscle strength, flexibility, and overall aerobic endurance
- Nutritional and lifestyle counseling: improve your daily choices outside the office: better posture, better sleep, better stress management, better nutrition, and so on
