Things We Treat at Our Office
The doctors at Park bench Chiropractic have the training and experience to treat a variety of problems, including these problems listed below.
Back PainThere is a wealth of scientific research detailing the success that chiropractic enjoys in the treatment of low back pain. Not only that, but numerous studies have documented that chiropractic is an optimal first-line treatment of low back pain, is cost-effective, and is safe.
People with low back pain that does not resolve on it's own without treatment are nearly always candidates for chiropractic care.
The non-invasive, drug-free treatment you will receive at our office is good for people who cannot take NSAID's due to history of stroke or heart attack (or current risk of those cardiovascular problems), or those who do not want to be on painkillers of muscle relaxers. Drugs are not a good way to be a productive employee or to drive safely to work and back.
Neck PainNeck pain has long been treated by chiropractors. The cervical spine (the neck bones) are very mobile compared to the other parts of your spine, and this is so your head and all the sensory organs it houses can interact with the environment. This makes it easier for your neck to become injured and for nerve pressure to cause problems due to inflammation or disc injury.
With this extra movement comes additional strain on the stabilizing structures of your cervical spine and this predisposes your neck to instability. That lack of stability and proper alignment causes muscle pain and tightness.
The nerves that come off of the spinal cord in the neck provide sensory and motor control to the head, shoulders, arms and hands, and when those nerves are pinched or have inflammation around them this can lead to pain, tingling, weakness, numbess, and other problems.
HeadacheChiropractic adjustments have been proven effective for treating certain types of headaches.
By adjusting the cervical spine a chiropractor can free up mobilize neck bones and cause tightened muscles to relax. Slight pressure on nerves (roughly the weight of a dime) can cause muscles to tighten and contract, and as the pressure increases symptoms turn to things like neck pain or headaches.
Not only can fixations and muscle tightness in the neck cause these symptoms, but poor posture, tight muscles and headache can lead to neck problems, making this type of problem into a cycle or pain and dysfunction. Dr. Romano and Dr. Schooley are trained to find out the cause of your headaches and correct it or refer to someone else who can when it falls outside the scope of chiropractic.
