Neck and Back Pain Treatment
Neck and back pain can have many causes. Our diagnostic services, including an on-site X-ray machine, can help us determine the true cause of your neck and back pain, so we can create a treatment plan that is right for you. Using spinal adjustment, lifestyle advice, stretches and exercises, and physiotherapy techniques we can treat your pain at its source, rather than masking the pain.
Headaches and Migraines
Headaches and migraines are a common symptom of whiplash, stress and head injuries. In the case of whiplash, stretches and exercises can help reduce inflammation, improve range of mobility and restore the muscles and ligaments to proper functionality.
For patients who experience tension headaches as a result of stress, massage therapy can reduce muscle tension and improve circulation, reducing pain in the head, scalp, and neck. For patients with head injuries, spinal adjustments can help the body to heal, thus reducing symptoms.
Carpal tunnel is a condition that occurs because of nerve damage, often caused by compression and inflammation in the wrists and arms. We use chiropractic adjustments in the arms, wrists, and spine to reduce pressure on the nerves and reverse the damage.
Sciatica causes pain in the lower back, as well as numbness and tingling in the leg. Sciatica is often a symptom of a broader condition like a subluxation or herniated disc. To reduce pain and discomfort from sciatica, we first must treat the underlying condition. Using spinal adjustments, stretches, and exercises, we help patients manage their pain.
Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Auto accidents cause a range of musculoskeletal problems, from whiplash to herniated disc. Patients who are involved in auto accidents are encouraged to contact us for an appointment, even if they show no symptoms of injury. Since some injuries can take days or weeks to manifest (delayed onset), seeing the chiropractor right away can help diagnose conditions in their early stages. At The Spine Clinic in Salem OR, we help patients recover and heal properly from auto accidents.
Spinal adjustment is the cornerstone of chiropractic care. At the Spine Clinic in Salem OR, we offer a range of spinal adjustment techniques, from manual adjusting to instrument adjusting. The type of adjustment we use depends on the preferences of the patient as well as his or her personal diagnosis. Spinal adjustments help realign the vertebrae and reduce pressure on the spinal cord, thus helping to speed the healing process and improve the functionality of the central nervous system.
Physiotherapy is the practice of identifying the source of a patient's pain, then treating the pain by curing the original cause. Often the actual problem in the body is far from the site of the pain. Some of the common physiotherapy techniques include:
Ultrasound. Ultrasound stimulates soft tissues to improve circulation, promote healing and reduce pain.
Galvanic muscle stimulation. Galvanic muscle stimulation is a form of electrotherapy that helps reduce pain and heal wounds.
Massage. Massage promotes good blood flow and helps loosen tense or damaged muscles.
We have an on-site x-ray and partner with several Salem MRI facilities if more comprehensive diagnostic studies are needed.
