  • Auto Accidents & Whiplash Injuries

    Auto AccidentCar accidents, blows to the back in sports, and on-the-job injuries can easily leave you with a whiplash injury. While symptoms are often felt immediately, pain may be delayed for days, months, or, in rare cases, even years. In fact, many people wake up with neck pain without being aware of ever having a head or neck injury. The most common symptom of whiplash (affecting 62% to 92% of those injured) is neck pain, and it usually begins between two hours and two days after the accident. This is often the result of tightened muscles that react to either muscle tears or excessive movement of joints from ligament damage. The muscles tighten in an effort to splint up and support the head, limiting the excessive movement. While muscle relaxants and pain killers can relieve some of the discomfort of these muscle spasms, these medications will only cover up symptoms, failing to address the cause of the problem.

    An estimated 66% to 70% of those suffering from whiplash complain of headaches. The pain may be on one side or both, on- again/-off again or constant, in one location or more diffuse. These headaches, like neck pain, are often the result of tightened, tensed muscles trying to keep the head stable and, like tension headaches, they are often felt behind the eyes. Shoulder pain, often described as pain radiating down the back of the neck into the shoulder blade area, also may be the result of tensed muscles.
    Muscle tears often are described as burning, prickling or tingling pain. More severe disc damage may cause sharp pain with certain movements which are relieved by holding your hand over your head. So if you suspect you have a whiplash injury, and/or have been involved in an automobile accident, or if you are having neck pain for some other reason our office is ready to help you with all of the paperwork, including helping you to get a claim number established and billing the insurance carrier. We’ll help guide you through the red tape, so that you can focus on receiving the care you need and deserve.

     

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    Carpal Tunnell SyndromeThis syndrome is caused by pressure placed on the median nerve that passes through the small bones of the wrist as it enters the hand. The reason for the pressure on the nerve can vary, but it is commonly due to repetitive strain. Repetitive strain disorders, or RSD, have become an increasing problem in today’s society. With more people spending increasing hours at computer keyboards and "mousing," we have seen an increase in carpal tunnel syndrome and similar conditions. People suffering from carpal tunnel and related syndromes describe their symptoms as: pain, numbness, tingling, and sometimes loss of grip strength.

    A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurologic testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. The key to successful treatment is removing the inflammation surrounding the median nerve and correcting the underlying biomechanical causes including poor posture, poor ergonomic environment at work, and improper technique while exercising. Spinal manipulation, soft tissue manipulation, physiotherapy, therapeutic exercise, and modifications of the home, work, and health club routines are very effective in resolving the condition and its related symptoms. However, if after examination the doctor concludes that your case cannot be helped with conservative care, a prompt referral will be made.

     

  • Children

    If you’ve ever watched a toddler master the art of walking…. there are lots oftumbles and falls. Older children are also at risk of spinal trauma. ChildrenSports activities, poor posture ("slouching"), heavy backpacks and working at an improperly sized desk all take a toll.

    How often chiropractors have encountered parents who appreciate the importance of regular checkups for their child’s teeth, hearing, eyes and ears, but draw a blank when it comes to a spinal checkup. In fact, a spinal checkup could be one of the most important checkups your child will ever have. Your child’s spine is his/her lifeline because running through it is the spinal cord, containing billions of nerve fibers that send messages and energy from the brain to every part of their body. Spinal problems can start earlier than you might think — much earlier. In fact, the birthing process itself has been shown to wreak havoc on a baby’s spine.

    It’s no wonder that many youngsters develop a spinal condition called vertebral subluxation. This condition occurs when spinal movement is restricted or bones (vertebrae) are out of alignment. Vertebral subluxation is linked with a myriad of childhood ailments, such as colic, asthma, ear infection, and attention deficit disorders. As children grow older, untreated vertebral subluxations may also spark headaches, back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Dr. Levine works to correct these subluxations before the onset of symptoms — and to prevent new ones from forming. This is accomplished with extremely gentle, modified adjusting techniques to alleviate spinal problems in pediatric patients.

     

  • Chronic Fatique

    Chronic FatiqueOur office provides safe and effective treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome, and the other varied health problems often associated with chronic fatigue. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as Myalgic Encephlomyelitis, Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, and various other names, is a syndrome (or group of syndromes) of unknown and possibly multiple etiologies, affecting the central nervous system and possibly the immune system as well as other organs.

    CFS occurs more often, but not exclusively, in women, for unknown reasons.
    Patients with this diagnosis may report muscle weakness, hypersensitivity, orthostatic intolerance, digestive disturbances, depression, immune system weakness, and cardiac and respiratory problems. Whether you choose to use chiropractic care exclusively, or in conjunction with conventional medicine, the doctor will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan in order to solve your particular set of problems. Treatments include spinal manipulation, physiotherapy and lifestyle evaluation.

     

  • Disc injuries: bulging & herniated discs (aka “slipped” disc)

    Disc InjuriesMany people turn to chiropractic care for safe, effective treatment of disc injuries. This is sometimes referred to as a "slipped" disc", but discs don’t actually slip out of place. Discs can, however, bulge or herniate, causing pain at the site of injury, and/or numbness, pain, tingling, and weakness to radiate down the arms or legs. The pain and other symptoms are caused by the disc putting pressure on the spinal nerves, which leads to inflammation, pain and impaired function. Pinched nerves can cause your symptoms to travel away from the spine, along the course of the affected nerve.
    The nerves of the neck travel down the shoulder and extend into the arm, hand, and fingers. This why so many neck problems cause symptoms into the arm and hand. The nerves of the low back join to form the sciatic nerve, which travels down the leg into the foot.

    This is why a "pinched nerve" of the low back with symptoms radiating down the leg is often called "sciatica". Discs can be injured by an acute trauma, or can be injured slowly over time by poor posture, lifting incorrectly, and loss of normal spinal function (joint restrictions, misalignments, subluxations). Whatever the cause, disc injuries usually respond very well to chiropractic care. Before treatment begins, a thorough examination including orthopedic and neurological testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. Spinal manipulation is effective in restoring normal position and function to the joints, as well as to the surrounding muscles and nerves.

    This usually leads to a decrease in pain and faster recovery. Part of your treatment may also include some of the following: electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, moist heat therapy and therapeutic exercises. If you are experiencing the symptoms of disc injury or "pinched nerve", we recommend that you schedule an appointment as quickly as possible.

  • Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia (FM or FMS) is a chronic syndrome ( constellation of signs and symptoms) characterized by diffuse muscle, joint or bone pain accompanied by fatigue and wide range of other symptoms. It is not contagious, and recent studies suggest that people with fibromyalgia may be genetically predisposed. It affects more females than males, with a ratio of 9:1 by ACR (American College of Rheumatology) criteria.

    Fibromyalgia is seen in 3% to 6% of the general population, and is most commonly diagnosed in individuals between the ages of 20 and 50, though onset can occur in childhood. For proper diagnosis and treatment, a wide variety of factors need to be considered including "head-to-toe" joint and muscle function, dietary, and lifestyle issues.

    A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurological testing, as well as other specialized tests, will help to determine the exact causes of your symptoms and your individualized treatment plan. Very often, a comprehensive treatment program addressing all of these issues leads to significant improvement. Joint and soft tissue manipulation is often very helpful in relieving the aches and pains of fibromyalgia and related conditions.

    Part of your treatment may include, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and massage. Although researchers are still a long way from finding a "cure" for fibromyalgia, chiropractic care is usually very successful in the effective management of the symptoms associated with this condition.

  • Gastrointestinal (GI) Problems

    Gastrointestinal (GI) ProblemsOur office provides safe and effective treatment for a variety of GI conditions including, but not limited to:

    • Indigestion, bloating, heartburn
    • Gastro-esophageal reflux disease, or "G.E.R.D."
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    Whether you choose to use chiropractic care exclusively, or in conjunction with conventional medicine, the doctor will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan in order to solve your particular problem. Treatment includes spinal manipulation, physiotherapy, therapeutic exercises and dietary changes. In the event a second opinion is necessary, a prompt referral will be made.

  • Elbow Pain and Tennis & Golfer’s Elbow
    Elbow Pain and Tennis & Golfer's ElbowMost elbow injuries are due to overuse or repetitive strain. In "tennis elbow" (not always caused by playing tennis) there is an overuse/overstrain of the muscles and ligaments that attach at the lateral part (outside) of the elbow. In "golfers’ elbow" (not always caused by playing golf), the pain is in the muscles and ligaments on the medial part (inside) of the elbow. A thorough examination including orthopedic testing will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.

    Once a diagnosis has been reached, reducing the level of pain and inflammation around the elbow is of initial concern. Care consisting of spinal manipulation, ice, ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation may be used to accomplish this goal. Specific therapeutic exercises will be also be given to rehabilitate the injured, weakened tissues and overly tight muscles.

    Often a specialized brace will be given to prevent recurrent injury to the elbow during the healing process. Not always thought of as a "chiropractic" condition by patients, chiropractic’s conservative approach to elbow pain is often very effective, avoiding more invasive, risky treatment options. If it is determined that your condition requires a second opinion, a prompt referral will be made.

  • Headaches & Migranes

    Headaches & Migranes More than 15 million Americans suffer from persistent recurring headaches with no obvious cause. Pain pills only temporarily relieve headache symptoms, never addressing the cause. Numerous studies have found that chiropractic care helps a variety of headaches. Tension headaches are one of the most common types of headaches. Recent studies show that many of these originate in the neck where the cervical vertebrae are located.

    A medical doctor doing research at Syracuse University said, "We’ve been able to put together a scientific explanation for how neck structure causes headaches… It’s true what chiropractors have been saying for years… They were right about headaches. "A recently published controlled study concluded, spinal manipulation has a significant positive effect in cases of cervicogenic (originating from the neck) headache." They found that chiropractic care reduced the number of headache hours by an impressive 69% and reduced the intensity of the remaining headaches. Migraine headaches, perhaps the most severe headaches, also respond to chiropractic care.

    In one study, 74.7% of migraine patients were greatly improved under chiropractic care, and the success rate was maintained two years after the care ended. Then there was the Parker study, funded by the Australian government that found chiropractic care effective for migraine headaches. A follow-up study of the initial trial concluded, "The trial clearly established that chiropractic was an effective treatment for migraine." Chiropractic care is not just for backaches. If you suffer with headaches, call our office to discuss your treatment options.

  • Hip Pain

    Hip PainThe hip joint is made up of the large bone of the upper leg, called the "femur," and the pelvic bone, or "ilium." Hip pain can develop for a variety of reasons. The most common causes of hip pain include musclular imbalance, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), bursitis, arthritis, and nerve irritation.

    A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurological testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.

    Treatment options include joint manipulation, physiotherapeutic procedures such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound and therapeutic exercises to rehabilitate the affected muscles. If it is determined that your condition requires a second opinion, a prompt referral will be made.

  • Knee Pain

    Knee PainA detailed examination of the knee, including orthopedic testing, will help to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms. In some cases, X-ray or MRI studies would be obtained to help arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Whether your knee pain is chronic or acute, or as the result of a sprain/strain injury, many knee conditions respond very well to the conservative treatment of chiropractic care. Pain and swelling in the knee can be reduced with the aid of physiotherapy.

    In addition, strengthening and stretching key muscles around the knee can speed healing, create better joint stability and prevent re-injury. If it is determined that your condition requires a second opinion, an appropriate referral will be made.

  • Low Back Pain

    Low Back PainSooner or later, an amazing 8 of every 10 people will suffer with some low back pain in their lifetime. So many people have found relief from back pain through chiropractic care that chiropractors often are thought of as back doctors. Of course, they do specialize in care of the spine, but spinal problems can cause not only back pain but all sorts of health problems throughout your body. Still, chiropractic care is indeed effective for back pain.

    In fact, The US Agency for Health Care Policy and Research recently appointed a panel of medical experts who reviewed some 3,900 studies on care for acute low back pain. The panel rejected bed rest, surgery (except rare cases), injections into the back, and all oral prescription drugs (such as antidepressants or steroids).
    In contrast, they found that spinal manipulation, which usually is performed by a chiropractor, "can be helpful for patients with acute low back problems."

    There are fewer studies on long-term chronic back pain than short-term acute back pain. Still, a recent study in the respected medical journal, Spine found chiropractic care beneficial for ongoing chronic back pain. The traditional approach for patients with chronic back pain has been back pain school to teach patients how to cope and live with the pain. Chiropractic care was compared to back pain school in this study, and the chiropractic group did significantly better.
    The researchers concluded, "spinal manipulation is clinically useful in chronic pain patients who have been suffering for seven weeks or more." Part of your treatment may also include some combination of the following: ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, most heat therapy, cryotherapy and therapeutic exercises.

    So many scientific and government studies have proven the effectiveness of chiropractic care for back pain that in 1993, the government of Ontario, in a 216-page study of all available evidence, found chiropractic care of low back pain superior to medical management in terms of safety, evidence of effectiveness, evidence of cost, and patient satisfaction.

    If you or anyone you know wants to get the safest, most effective and safest care for low back pain, contact our office today.

  • Low Back Pain with Leg Symptoms (Sciatica & Disc Injuries)

    Many people turn to chiropractic care for safe, effective treatment of low back pain with leg pain, numbness, and tingling. This is sometimes called "sciatica" or a "pinched nerve". Common causes include "trigger points" in various muscles, and pinched nerves from stiff and restricted joints.

    In cases of a pinched nerve, you will feel tingling, numbness, and possibly even weakness due to pressure and inflammation on a nerve from bulging discs, misaligned vertebrae or bone spurs along the spine. Pressure on these "pinched nerves" can cause your symptoms to travel away from the spine, along the course of the nerve. The nerves of the low back join to form the sciatic nerve, which travels down the leg into the foot. This is why a "pinched nerve" of the low back with symptoms radiating down the leg is often called "sciatica." A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurological testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.

    Manipulation (adjustment) of the spinal joints is very effective in restoring normal function to the joints, as well as to the surrounding muscles and nerves. This usually leads to a decrease in pain and faster recovery. Part of your treatment may also include some combination of the following: electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot/cold therapy, myofascial release and therapeutic exercises in order to get the best results. If you are experiencing the symptoms of "pinched nerve" described above, we recommend that you schedule an appointment as quickly as possible. In the event that your condition requires a second opinion, an appropriate referral would be made promptly.

  • Neck Pain with Arm Symptoms (Numbness, Tingling, Pain)

    neck painMany people turn to chiropractic care for safe, effective treatment of neck pain with arm pain, numbness, and tingling. Common causes include "trigger points" in various muscles, and pinched nerves from stiff and restricted joints. Generally with a pinched nerve, you will feel tingling, numbness, and possibly even weakness due to pressure and inflammation on a nerve from bulging discs, misaligned vertebrae or bone spurs along the spine.

    Pressure on these "pinched nerves" can cause your symptoms to travel away from the spine, along the course of the nerve. The nerves of the neck travel down the shoulder and extend into the arm, hand, and fingers. This is why so many neck problems cause symptoms to radiate into the arm and hand. Performing a thorough examination, in our office including orthopedic and neurological testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.

In the event that your condition requires a second opinion, an appropriate referral would be made promptly.

  • Mid Back Pain

    Mid BackMid back pain is often described as dull, sharp, burning pain with a frequency that is either intermittent or constant. Some common causes include: scoliosis, poor posture, repetitive movements, misaligned vertebrae and/or ribs, and strained muscles. A thorough examination will differentiate between these causes, and appropriate treatment will be rendered.

    Mid back pain often responds well to chiropractic care consisting of spinal manipulation, physiotherapy and postural recommendations. In many cases, muscular imbalances can be found in the mid back, and a therapeutic exercise program that targets the appropriate muscles is given to assist in relieving symptoms and preventing re-injury.

  • Muscular Pain

    There are many types of muscular pain. Sometimes muscular pain is the direct result of injury to the muscle, as in the case of a muscle pull, tear, or rupture. Other times, the muscular attachment to the bone (called the "tendon") becomes strained in a specific injury, or as the result of repetitive strain. Examples of repetitive strain to the muscle or tendon include prolonged and/or poor sitting postures, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Most people don’t realize that by the time they actually feel muscular pain, the surrounding joints and nerves have also become affected. This is why chiropractic care is so effective in treating muscular pain: because it is comprehensive care that addresses not only the muscles, but also the joints and their related spinal nerves.

    After a thorough examination, the doctor will determine the exact muscles, joints, and nerves involved, as well as any underlying causes you may not be aware of. Depending on the specific findings of your exam, some combination of the following treatments may be recommended to decrease your pain and speed healing: spinal manipulation, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, hot and cold therapy and therapeutic exercises in order to get the best results. In the event that your condition requires a second opinion, an appropriate referral would be made promptly.

  • Scoliosis

    ScScoliosis is a abnormal side to side curvature of the spine.Scoliotic curves greater than 10° affect 2-3% of the population. The prevalence of curves less than 20° is about equal in males and females. Curves greater than 20° affect about 1 in 2500 people. Curves convex to the right are more common than those to the left, and single or ‘C’ curves are slightly more common than double or ‘S’ curve patterns. Males are more likely to have infantile or juvenile scoliosis, but there is a high female predominance of adolescent scoliosis. Young females are seven times more likely than young males to develop a significant, progressive curvature.
    Females are nine times more likely to require treatment than males as they tend to have larger, more progressive curves.When the spine suffers this kind of twisted curvature, a great deal of stress and abnormal function occurs in the body. The ability of the nervous system to coordinate and control all structures and organs of the body is affected. Worst of all, even the slightest scoliosis tends to progress with time.

    Leaving any scoliosis untreated always results in early degeneration of the spinal joints and progressively declining health. Many people have found that chiropractic is very successful in stopping the increase of spinal curvature which is seen as scoliosis progresses. Chiropractic care in some cases helps reduce the abnormal curvature and return the spine to be as straight as possible.Once the scoliotic curve is reduced, then specific spinal adjustments and exercises help support the strength of the spine. If you or anyone you know has scoliosis we recommend you contact our office for an appointment.

  • Shoulder Pain & Rotator Cuff Injuries

    Sholder PainOver the past several years, "impingement syndrome" and "rotator cuff syndrome" have become more common phrases replacing the previous terms of bursitis, tendonitis and supraspinatus syndrome.
    All of these terms describe essentially the same phenomena, overuse injuries and irritation of the rotator cuff. While other, more serious injuries occur, rotator cuff irritation is the most common cause of shoulder pain seen in athletes and non-athletes alike. This can be due to any combination of factors including poor posture, poor ergonomic this way environment at work, improper lifting, improper warm-up and stretching techniques for various sports.

    Many people complain of shoulder pain radiating to the side of the arm, where the deltoid muscle inserts into the long bone of the arm called the humerus. This occurs due to referred pain. Pain, soreness and restricted movement when raising the arm are common complaints.
    A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurological testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. Manipulation (adjustment) of the spinal and joint mobilization is very effective in restoring normal function as well as to the surrounding muscles and nerves. This usually leads to a decrease in pain and quicker recovery.
    Part of your treatment may also include some of the following: ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, hot/cold therapy and therapeutic exercises in order to get the best results. In the event that your condition requires a second opinion, an appropriate referral would be made promptly.

  • TMJ

    TMJThe temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint where the jaw hinges to the skull just in front of the ear. This joint is held together by a complex system of muscles, tendons, and ligaments which help it move up to 2000 times a day, making it the most active joint in the body. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include clicking or popping in the jaw, headaches, earaches, neck pain and sensitive teeth.The causes for TMJ disorder are many, including dental problems, whiplash injury to the neck, grinding, clenching teeth and injury to the jaw. Daily stress can lead you to clench and grind your teeth, both during the day and at night while you sleep. Clenching means you tightly clamp your top and bottom teeth together, especially the back teeth. The stressful force of clenching causes pressure on the muscles tissues and other structures around your jaw.
    Many people who clench also grind their teeth. Grinding is when you slide your teeth over each other, generally in a sideways, back-and-forth movement. This action may wear down your teeth and be noisy enough at night to bother sleeping partners.Poor posture can also be an important factor. For example, holding the head forward while looking at a computer all day strains the muscles of the face and neck. Other factors that might aggravate TMJ symptoms are inability to relax, poor diet and lack of sleep.The prolonged contraction of the jaw and neck muscles can produce vertebral misalignments in the cervical spine.

    When the spine is misaligned, it can irritate nerves causing irritability, anxiety, headaches, pain or numbness in the arms and hands and backaches.Manipulation to the spine as well as soft tissue mobilization of the jaw bone usually leads to a decrease in pain and quicker recovery. Part of your treatment may also include some of the following: ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, hot and cold therapy and therapeutic exercises in order to get the best results. In the event that your condition requires a second opinion, an appropriate referral would be made promptly.

  • Work-Related Injuries

    Work RelatedWorkers’ Compensation Insurance covers chiropractic care with good reason. Some 13 separate studies in various states have repeatedly found that chiropractic care gets better results, getting people back to work much sooner and at far lower cost than medical care for the same type of on-the-job back injuries. Chiropractic care for work related back injuries provides quick relief and lasting benefit, usually leading to fewer chronic cases.

    That is great for any person hurt at work and reason enough to have their employer and or insurance company choose chiropractic care for work-related job injuries. Our office is ready to help you with all of the paperwork, including obtaining an authorization from your employer or insurance company and directly billing the insurance carrier. We’ll help guide you through the red tape, so that you can focus on getting better.
