MIGRAINES OR HEADACHES
Very often migraines and other types of headaches can be caused by problems in the upper part of the spine. Dysfunction in the neck can irritate the nerves that go from the neck into the head, and if left unchecked can lead to headaches. We have seen patients get their lives back as their headaches begin to get better.
Our approach is very different than most healthcare providers. Finding out WHY you are in pain is our primary focus rather than just trying to relieve chronic neck pain. Often times, medications such as painkillers/muscle relaxers will get rid of pain, but it doesn’t address the cause of it. We have found that with a lot of patients there is dysfunction in the upper part of the spine and the spinal bones are moving incorrectly. By correcting this with chiropractic care, our patients can see great results.
Shoulder pain is often caused by one of 2 things: 1. The nerves going from the neck into the shoulder are being affected by spinal dysfunction, or 2. The shoulder is misaligned and not moving properly, creating inflammation and pain. We will check for both and improve the function of the spine and shoulder, which very often will get the shoulder doing better without needing to resort to drugs and/or surgery. We also have great success alleviating elbow and wrist issues.
BACK AND LEG PAIN
Back pain is in the top three leading causes of missed days of work in the U.S. While there are many approaches to solving this issue, we believe we offer the least invasive, effective, approach to ridding our patients of their back pain and keeping it gone. We often find that dysfunction in the lower part of the spine can lead to low back and leg pain. We work to restore normal function in your body so that your body can heal.
KNEE, ANKLE, AND FOOT PAIN
We see many people that have been suffering from leg problems for a long time. And often, these problems exist because of dysfunction in the lower back, pelvis, knees and feet. By adjusting these areas and restoring normal function, often times pain in these areas will begin to get better. We have extensive training on adjusting the knees, ankles and feet.
Sinus Problems and Asthma
Time and time again patients, who often came in for other conditions like back or neck pain, will tell us how much better they are able to breathe and how much better their sinus problems are. The nerves in the neck directly control areas of the lungs and sinuses, so when there is distortion in the upper part of the neck, it can immensely impact these areas. We also often see asthmatic children able to get back to a normal childhood thanks to chiropractic care.
A very overlooked aspect of pregnancy is chiropractic. Here at Foothills Chiropractic we see a lot of expectant mothers. The reason is that the stress of pregnancy on the body, especially the spine, is tremendous. And that stress can cause different aches and pains during pregnancy. Getting chiropractic care during pregnancy helps to reduce pain as well as can help make the birthing process easier. Chiropractic should be a part of every pregnancy.
Neurodevelopmental disorders in children
As of today, the CDC says 1 in 59 children have Autism. Another 1 in 8 are diagnosed with anxiety. On top of that, another 43% are diagnosed with some sort of chronic health condition. If you feel like those numbers are high, it’s because they are. These numbers continue increasing at an alarming rate, regardless of the number of new treatments or medicines we have available. Many parents come to us at their wits end, knowing that their child can live beyond whatever label has been put on them. They come to us knowing that what they’ve been told concerning their family’s health is only half the story, that they there is a missing puzzle piece, and they are almost on the brink of finding it. They come to us for hope.
Our goal in working with neurodevelopmental disorders and mental health is not to change the child or the individual, but to allow their body and nervous system to adapt to stress and express health. The type of children we help are often labeled/diagnosed with autism, ADHD, OCD, chronic digestive and immune issues, anxiety, depression, behavioral issues such as ODD, sensory processing disorders, and learning delays. Our office is designed to feel like home, with these patients in mind.
Here are some of the other conditions that we see in our office:
- Digestive problems
- Menstrual issues
- Poor Immune function
- Mental fogginess
- Poor sleep
- Bed Wetting
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Athletic Performance
- Adrenal Function
