Frequently Asked Questions

It’s best to warm up your muscles with gentle exercise, like walking, for about 10-15 minutes. Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during and after exercise or playing sports. Also, it’s important to cool down after activity.

No matter how you tear your Achilles tendon, you will feel pain. If the tear is minor, you may have trouble flexing your foot, pointing your toe, or putting weight on your foot. For the most part, partial tears can heal on their own with rest and bracing or taping.

Shin splints are tiny tears and inflammation in the muscles around the shin bones. They’re often seen in runners who train too hard too fast, without ramping up their fitness levels. Also, shin splints are common if you have flat feet or wear shoes without arch support.

The most common sports-related overuse injuries vary depending on the season. In the spring we see running injuries from track and field. This includes shin splints, patellar tendinitis and achilles tendinitis. With baseball and softball, we see more shoulder overuse injuries. Some include biceps tendinitis and rotator cuff tendinitis. In the fall we see running injuries with cross-country athletes. Moreover, a lot of football quarterbacks get shoulder-related problems.

Chiropractors take X-rays to reveal the internal structure and alignment of the spine. We are also concerned about underlying disease processes and disorders of the spine. These include spinal deterioration, arthritis of the spine and abnormal development. Others include bone spurs, disc disorders, tumors and spinal curvature. X-rays provide a blueprint for correcting the spine back into alignment.

 

A big toe seems like a little thing, until injury occurs. A sprain to the ligaments that connect the big toe the foot is a big deal for an athlete. Turf toe happens when the big toe gets bent too far up or down. This often occurs when an athlete jams his toe or repeatedly pushes off a hard surface.

 

Chiropractic treatment is a safe, drug-free, non-invasive therapy that can treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Despite the excellent safety record, it is not free of potential adverse effects. Yet, the risks associated with chiropractic are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment. But some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching. This is comparable to how you feel after some forms of exercise. Minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation often fades within 24 hours.

Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure. It involves refined skills developed during intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractic physician uses their hands or an instrument to manipulate the joints. Often times manipulation to the spine restores or enhances joint function.

The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.
