Auto and Work Injuries often are more severe type injuries and require immediate attention. Chiropractors are Primary Care Physicians and can see you immediately after an injury. You do not need to see a medical doctor first. We do the work to bill your auto or work comp insurance and you do not need to worry about paying out of pocket. Auto and Work injuries can cause long lasting problems so you need to get checked out right away.
Often people think that when they have Osteoarthritis that they can’t be adjusted by a Chiropractor. It is actually the exact opposite! Chiropractic Adjustments are the best thing for Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis causes stiff and sore joints that are immobile. Chiropractic helps treat Osteoarthritis by mobilizing these stiff joints and decreasing inflammation. Adjustments can actually help slow down further arthritic development by maintaining adequate mobility in the joints.
Soft Tissue Sports Injuries
So many people hurt a shoulder or pull a hamstring and think immediately to go see an Orthopedic Doctor or a Physical Therapist. What they don’t realize is that a Chiropractor is a Primary Care Physician and we are trained to treat all areas of the body, not just the spine! Graston Technique and Electrical Muscle Stimulation are Dr. Neneman’s favorite treatments to use to treat soft tissue injuries. So whether you hurt your shoulder playing football or lifting up your young son or daughter, either way, Dr. Neneman can help!
As a child develops in utero throughout the pregnancy a lot of changes are taking place within a woman’s body. Hormonal changes cause the pelvic ligaments to start relaxing and stretching to prepare the body for delivery. This loosening of the ligaments causes a lot of pelvic instability which can ultimately lead to lower back and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Getting regular adjustments throughout your pregnancy can help you feel a lot better and actually make the delivery process easier when your spine and pelvis have proper mobility and function. Maternity Chiropractic care is completely safe for mom and the baby! Dr. Neneman has many maternity patients.
Kids are very hard on their bodies jumping, running, and diving everyday. Even newborn babies need adjusted as 40-weeks curled up in the womb combined with the delivery process are very stressful to the spine. Parents do your kids a favor now and get them adjusted regularly so they have less problems later as adults. You may think that there is no reason to take your children to the chiropractor because they don’t have any pain. Do you take your children to the dentist even when they don’t have cavities? Yes! Because you want to prevent them from getting cavities. So why not take your children to the Chiropractor to prevent spinal problems they may end up having in their 30s? Children have joint fixations even though they don’t have pain! Those joint fixations need to be adjusted now. Dr. Neneman treats many babies and kids of all ages.
Chiropractic produces great results when it comes to neck pain. The technology we have now is causing an ever increasing amount of neck problems due to poor posture. Not only can Dr. Neneman give you advice on your posture, but he can treat your neck issues with Chiropractic. Take care of your neck now so that you may maintain proper mobility in it as you age.
Lower Back Pain
According to the American Chiropractic Association, half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year. Back pain is one of the most common two reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper respiratory infections. There have been studies done that have shown patients with lower back problems got better relief with Chiropractic than they did with medication and physical therapy.
Many times headaches are actually a byproduct of neck dysfunction. Restricted spinal joints in the neck along with tight muscles can create a lot of tension up into the head causing headaches. Chiropractic adjustments along with physiotherapies can help reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches and even in some patients completely resolve them. Migraine sufferers can also see positive results with Chiropractic.
