Head, Neck and Arm problems

 

Arthritis

lumbar arth

Think of this like rust on a piece of metal machinery.  It causes the joint not to move well.  The key to keeping this from getting worse is to keep it moving.  You can do this by staying active.  Walking is a great way to do this.  Stretching can also help.  Chiropractic Adjustments are a great way to maintain mobility of an arthritic joint.  If exercise and stretches alone are not helping or you need some guidance on what kind of stretches to do give us a call.

Neck and shoulder pain

Headaches

Most headaches come from either a blood flow problem in the brain or problems in the neck causing headache pain due to muscle spasm.  Unfortunately you can have both.   Most of the time the medications you get from your medical doctor treat the headaches that come from a blood flow problem in the brain.  We treat the headaches that come from problems in your neck.  If you are having headaches at the back of your head with neck pain then most likely it is a problem in your neck giving you headaches.   If you are unsure give us a call.  Let us at least tell you why you are in pain.   Then you can decide what you want to do from there.
