Conditions Treated

Common Musculoskeletal Conditions Treated

layoutChiropractic has provided effective relief to millions of individuals suffering from back and neck ailments. Chiropractic has also provided relief from many other musculoskeletal complaints ranging from knee and ankle problems to carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. In fact, musculoskeletal pain or discomfort in any area of the spine or extremity is a candidate for safe, natural, noninvasive chiropractic care. 

Common musculoskeletal conditions treated:

  • low back pain and stiffness
  • neck and upper back pain and stiffness
  • mid back pain and stiffness
  • headaches and migraines
  • leg pain, weakness, numbness and tingling
  • arm pain, weakness, numbness and tingling
  • extremity joint pain and dysfunction
  • carpal tunnel syndrome

Common Injuries Treated

layoutChiropractors commonly treat all types of injuries and recognize the unique findings associated with each. For example, it's important to understand that auto injuries often involve a delayed onset of symptoms which commonly surface weeks and even months post-accident. In work injuries, chiropractors routinely look beyond the actual injury and address such things as work station setup, ergonomically correct equipment, and proper work techniques. For sports injuries, chiropractors often check for biomechanical and muscle imbalances as a routine part of the treatment plan. Treating the whole person and optimizing health is what chiropractic is all about.

Common injuries treated:

  • automobile accident and whiplash injuries
  • on-the-job and lifting injuries
  • sports/athletic injuries
  • slip and fall injuries
  • chronic injuries

Non-Musculoskeletal Conditions Treated

layoutIn addition to musculoskeletal problems, chiropractic treatments have also been shown to benefit many individuals suffering from "medical" ailments such as chronic ear infections in children, menstrual pain and irregularities in women, and arthritis in the elderly. Although chiropractic care is not a specific form of treatment for such conditions, research has shown that many "medical" conditions can be caused or aggravated by irritation to spinal nerve roots which share an intimate relationship with the spinal structures. By restoring proper nerve functioning by normalizing spinal structure and function, we believe some individuals suffering from these "medical" ailments can obtain partial and in some cases, full relief.

Non-musculoskeletal conditions which studies have shown benefit from chiropractic:

  • asthma
  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • dizziness and dysequilibrium
  • dysmenorrhea
  • infantile colic
  • low energy levels
  • otitis media (ear infection)
  • ulcers

Testimonial

  • "Dr. Quinn is knowledgeable, highly skilled, personable chiropractor. His treatments surpass those of other chiropractors I have seen over my lifetime. Currently, I am receiving treatment due to whiplash that occurred when my car was rear-ended at a red light.

    My treatment includes weekly re-evaluation, chiropractic manipulation, therapeutic massage, and intersegmental traction. Dr Quinn also recommended my need for a podiatrist. The podiatrist found several treatable problems. Now my health keeps improving, but without his informed doctor's wisdom I would not have known the extent of help available to me. I am most grateful for Dr. John Quinn's excellent care and highly recommend him and his staff."
