3 Ways Chiropractic Treatment Helps with Back Pain
Most people experience back pain at least once in their life, if not frequently or even chronically. Regardless of whether your back pain is a constant (but “bearable”) ache or completely debilitating, there are things you can do to prevent, ...
- Auto Accidents
Auto Accident Injuries. Almost a third of all claimants in car crashes opt for chiropractic treatment. Why? Because motor vehicle accidents most commonly result in sprains and strains to the muscles and ligaments of the spine and other soft tissue injuries – precisely the kind of issues that chiropractors excel at treating.
It goes far beyond this though. If you find yourself suffering from difficulty sleeping, fatigue, headaches, irritability, low back pain, memory loss, muscle stiffness, neck pain, numbness, spasms, tingling, or trouble concentrating after an accident, make sure you see a chiropractor as soon as possible.
- Back Pain
Back Pain. Somewhere between 70-85% of people will suffer from some form of back pain in their lives. If you find yourself in this majority, there are a number of different treatments we can use to help, including x-rays, intersegmental traction, electric STIM therapy, chiropractic manipulative therapy, ultrasound, massage therapy, kinesio taping, hydromassage, and more.
Headaches. You might not think that a headache is worth seeing a chiropractor about, but if you suffer severe or chronic headache pain, it is definitely something to consider. According to some recent studies, long-term chiropractic care for headaches is more effective than simply using drugs. Why? Because most headaches involve a habitual, muscular, or spinal component.
- Neck Pain
Neck Pain. Do you carry a purse or backpack? How about looking down at your cell phone? Or holding it between your neck and shoulder? Is slumping one of your bad habits?
When people think about neck pain, they tend to believe that it is caused by some type of accident. This can and does happen, but more often than not, neck pain is simply the result of our own bad habits. Regardless of how your neck pain came about, we can help make it go away – and suggest techniques to keep it from coming back.
- Performance Care
Performance Care. What does performance care mean? Simply put: being able to live your life to the fullest. It does not matter if you are a stay-at-home mom or a professional athlete – all of us do things that wear our bodies down and lead to problems. Often, instead of dealing with these problems, we simply learn to live with them.
Sciatica. When your sciatic nerve becomes irritated or compressed, bad things can follow, such as muscular weakness, numbness, pins and needles, severe pain, and tingling. You may even have trouble moving or controlling your leg. What causes sciatica? Essentially, spinal problems. At USA Health & Therapy, we have a host of treatment options available to help you alleviate the pressure on your sciatic nerve to relieve pain and other symptoms.
- Shoulder Pain
Shoulder Pain. Fractures. Tendinitis. Bursitis. Arthritis. Impingement. Frozen shoulder syndrome. There are all kinds of shoulder pain that chiropractic treatment can help you to overcome. To determine how best to treat your shoulder issue, Dr. Singer will conduct a thorough exam on your first visit and may even order x-rays.
- Sports Injuries
Sports Injuries. Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, working out or playing a sport puts your body through a lot of stress and strain and can easily result in injury. Chiropractors treat not only sports injuries, such as muscle, ligament, and bone sprains, strains, and tears, but also various types of major and minor aches and pains that can keep you sidelined. Many people involved in athletic pursuits make chiropractic care a regular part of their routine to stay “tuned up and turned on.
Also known as subluxation or “an adjustment,” this is what pops into most people’s heads when they imagine chiropractic care. In short, it is where a chiropractor uses arm thrusts to get your spine aligned properly. Doing this can relieve pain and inflammation and help damaged tissues to regenerate.
- Electric Stim Therapy
With this type of treatment, electrodes are placed on your skin so they can send tiny pulses of electricity that cause your muscles to contract. Doing this helps reduce muscle pain and spasms by increasing blood supply and making your muscles stronger.
The name pretty much says it all with this one. Instead of being massaged by a person, with hydromassage all you need is warm water and water pressure. Clients who come in for this type of treatment find it to be fast and convenient. Typical sessions are just 10-15 minutes, and you can even watch videos or listen to music while it is done.
- Intersegmental Traction
Here, a special “traction table” is used to stretch and elongate your muscles and spinal joints in an effort to reduce spasms, increase your range of motions, and help your muscles to relax.
- Kinesio Taping
Literally, a specific type of tape is applied over and around the affected muscles in a particular pattern or formation that is designed to lift the skin to prevent injury, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, improve performance, and promote healing and circulation.
- Massage/Sports Massage
Our licensed massage therapist is trained in how to administer three different types of massages: therapeutic, chiropractic, and sports. Most people are familiar with therapeutic massage, where someone manually manipulates your muscles and other soft tissues.
Chiropractic ultrasound involves using high-frequency sound waves to penetrate deep into the tissues. Doing this has a number of benefits, including decreasing pain, swelling, and nerve irritation, improving your range of motion, speeding up your metabolism, and enhancing your body’s healing ability.
Though x-rays are typically not a part of the treatment we do here, if Dr. Singer notices a “red flag,” he may order them to make sure you are not suffering from bone disease, a fracture, a herniated disc, or some other serious issue. If you have recent x-rays, please bring them to your appointment.

" Have been adjusted by over 50 chiros in my life and Dr Craig is right up there with the best. His method of relaxing each client (hydro-jet-bed then massage) before the adjustment really helps. There is also a physical therapist with his own therapy room to help get your range of motion back like he did for me. VERY REASONABLE pricing and VERY flexible hours SO PLEASE be nice and try to avoid his lunch hour so he and his staff can eat because the poor guy refuses to say no. "- Bill Clark
