At Vrana Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Goddard, we treat many conditions that may affect your daily life. Often, pain signifies an underlying issue that needs to be addressed, which is why we work to treat the reason for your pain instead of temporarily alleviating the symptoms. Nobody should live in pain or discomfort, and here are some of the most common conditions we treat.
Back pain ranges from acute to chronic, and from minor to debilitating. Since your back is connected to your spinal system, pain concentrated in this region of your body often signifies a more important underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Since there are many causes of back pain, our first job is to identify the origin.
Sometimes back pain is caused by muscle strain or sprain, typically acquired due to overuse or injury. Poor posture, a sedentary lifestyle, and obesity can also cause pain. Most often, these conditions cause misalignment in your spine, which affects your entire body. Therefore, when we treat your back pain, we improve your overall health.
Like back pain, neck pain typically signifies an underlying issue. It can be caused by muscle strains, worn joints, injuries, diseases, and nerve compression. Sometimes it is caused by repetitive motions or stress, as well as poor posture. Although the pain is in your neck, it may be related to your back instead. Spinal stenosis and herniated discs can cause neck pain, which is why it's important that we employ our whole-body approach when creating your treatment plan.
Shoulder injuries occur after a car accident, sports injury, or repetitive strain from activities like weightlifting or typing on a computer. They range from rotator cuff tears to dislocations and fractures. If left untreated, they can cause pain, stiffness, and limited movement.
Whiplash is a neck injury sustained after a sudden and forceful back-and-forth movement, typically during a car accident or other traumatic event. Symptoms include muscle pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, headaches, and dizziness.
