Injuries and Pain
Trauma and pain often occurs as a result of automobile accidents, work related injuries, sports injuries, and common day to day accidents. Patients present many distinctive injuries and situations at our clinic, and we are equipped to manage your care. Our doctors have experience and specialized certifications to assess, treat, and refer as necessary through your recovery.
Chiropractic care consists of effective treatments for trauma, injury and pain management. Our Doctors have extensive expertise and are highly skilled in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain, headaches, and much more. We care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments, and joints. These painful conditions often involve or impact the nervous system, which then can cause referred pain and dysfunction to other areas of the body. Our doctors use specific procedures, techniques, and collaborate with other specialists to meet the unique needs of each patient to treat injuries and alleviate pain.
