An acute injury is the result of an impact or traumatic event that occurs in one specific area of the body, such as a muscle, bone, or joint. We treat acute injuries through chiropractic care, laser therapy, massage therapy and rehabilitation.
Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the name of a group of behaviors found in many children and adults. People who have ADHD have trouble paying attention in school, at home, or in the workplace. Children may be much more active and/or impulsive than what is usual for their age. These behaviors contribute to significant problems in relationships, learning and behavior. Exercises including vision therapy, vestibular/balance therapy and timing exercises have shown impressive results with ADHD. After a detailed examination, a “patient-specific” rehabilitation protocol is given to each patient based upon their specific findings yielding great results.
Chronic pain can occur in nearly any part of the body and is identified as pain that lasts at least 12 weeks. The pain may feel sharp or dull, causing a burning or aching sensation in the affected areas. It may be steady or intermittent, coming and going without any apparent reason.
Concussion or mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when there is sudden trauma to the head or neck, which causes the brain to shift and twist inside the skull. This results in damage to the brain, which may also cause inflammation and immune responses. If gone unchecked, it can lead to prolonged symptoms.
A headache is a painful sensation in the head that can range in intensity. There are a variety of causes of headaches that aren’t due to underlying disease.
Migraines are a recurring type of headache. They cause throbbing or pulsing pain that can range in intensity from moderate to severe. The pain often resonates on one side of your head. You may also experience other symptoms, such as nausea, weakness and sensitivity to light and sound.
Movement disorders are clinical syndromes with either an excess of movement or a shortage of voluntary and involuntary movements, unrelated to weakness or spasticity
The pain and loss of function that some experience with neuropathy is so significant that their quality of life is dramatically reduced. It is not uncommon for some to:
- Entirely lose feeling in their feet and hands
- Frequently fall because of loss of sensation
- Suffer debilitating pain that limits their enjoyment of life
If left untreated, neuropathy can develop into a serious disorder and lead to permanent nerve damage.
