Today's advanced chiropractic techniques can help with an abundance of physical maladies. Check our chiropractor symptoms search below and contact Skaggs Chiropractic, Joplin, MO.
Arm & Shoulder Pain: Arms and shoulder pain may be caused by a variety of issues including Bursitis, Tendinitis, Rotary Cuff Tears, and Degenerative Arthritis. Call Skaggs Chiropractic for an exam to determine the cause of your discomfort and a treatment plan to resolve it.
Auto Injury Accidents: Pain from an auto accident may not show up until weeks following. By then, the damage may have increased. Don't wait. Make an appointment as soon as possible after an auto accident.
Back Pain in Children: Heavy backpacks are the cause of more and more back pain in children. If your child is displaying signs of discomfort, make sure their backpacks are no heavier than 5 to 10% of their body weight.
Carpal Tunnel: Surgery is often prescribed for those suffering from this problem, but it may not be in the wrist. The median nerve connects to the spinal cord where the issue may originate. Allow us to exam your carpal tunnel issue before submitting to an invasive surgical procedure.
Disc Problems: Many cases of back and lower back pain are caused by disc problems. The chiropractic restoration to the normal position of the vertebrae provides non-surgical relief for many patients.
Headaches: Repeated headaches are not normal. Yet Americans take 29 billion aspirin each year. If you suffer from headaches, especially migraines, a chiropractic adjustment may be the solution.
Lower Back Pain: Far too often people mask lower back pain with medication. We use a holistic approach to resolving lower back pain for the long-term. Contact us for a spinal exam today.
Low Level Laser Therapy: Our low level laser therapy can reduce pain, promote the healing of tissue and reduce acute inflammation. We are pleased to offer LLLT as part of our wide-ranging services.
Neck Pain: Neck pain is an indication of an underlying problem. At Skaggs Chiropractic, we identify that underlying issue and resolve it with a treatment plan designed for the specific individual.
Pinched Nerve: Although not a clinical term, a pinched nerve can cause pain in the back, neck, head, and even the arms, hands, legs, and feet. It can be caused by poor posture, trauma, sports injuries or even stress. A visit to Skaggs Chiropractic, Joplin, MO can provide relief.
Sciatica: This is a tingling or numbness that runs from the back through the lower leg or legs. The term comes from the sciatic nerve that is in the back of the legs. It can sometimes make it difficult to walk.
Sciatica and Leg Pain: Your sciatic nerve runs down the back of your legs. It can sometimes cause tingling or numbing. If you experience this or other leg pain, it could very well be spine-related.
Scoliosis: Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. This is a condition that often starts in childhood and manifests itself with pain later in life. Have children checked for early detection and treatment. Long-term chiropractic care can help resolve the issues surrounding scoliosis in adults.
Spinal Surgery: Back pain can be so uncomfortable, patients are willing to undergo invasive surgeries with lengthy recovery times. Adjustments from a chiropractor may be an affective alternative.
