Chiropractic Adjustments
One of the most common and well know therapeutic procedures performed by doctors of chiropractic is spinal manipulation (sometimes referred to as a “chiropractic adjustment”). The objective of a spinal adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted with movement due to a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be simply be caused by a single traumatic event, like improperly lifting a heavy object or through repetitive stresses, like sitting in an awkward position with poor posture for an extended period of time. Either way, injured tissues will undergo a physical and chemical changes that cause inflammation, pain and diminished function for an individual. Chiropractic adjustments of the affect joint and tissues will restore mobility, thus alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.

Auto Accidents
If you have been involved in a auto accident it is important to act quickly. Waiting for treatment for whiplash hurts your health and puts your benefits at risk. Too often people don’t seek treatment following a car accident because they don’t feel hurt. By far, the most common injury in a auto accident is a whiplash injury. Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, either backward, forward, or sideways, that results in the damage to the supporting muscles, ligaments and other connective tissues in the neck and upper back. The professionals at Heresco Chiropractic will work with you to find the exact cause of your issues, and help you through using regular chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and spinal corrective rehabilitative exercises to get you feeling like yourself again.

Back Pain
The majority of the back pain is a fact of life for most Americans. In fact research shows that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. It is also the second most common reason for visits to a doctor’s office. A recent global survey of health conditions identified back pain as the single most disabling condition worldwide. Needless to say, back pain is problematic for most people.

Spinal health is an important factor in preventing pack pain, as well as maintaining overall health and well-being. How back pain is treated has come a long way. It was once believed that taking pain medication plus some rest and relaxation were the best course of treatment of low back pain, but current research supports first trying drug-free, conservative options for pain management while remaining as active as possible during the recovery time.

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.

Chiropractors practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.

Custom Orthotics

“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” – Abraham Lincoln.

Now in this instance, Abraham Lincoln is referring to standing strong with your personal morals and ethics; but here at Heresco Chiropractic, we believe that if you are standing firm that your feet should be well supported. Making a change in how your feet are supported can positively affect even the most basic of movements like walking. Your feet literally hold up the entirety of your body and are the foundation of having a healthy spine. Custom orthotics are a prescribed medical device that you wear inside your shoes to correct biomechanical foot issues. They also can help with a variety of foot/ankle/knee/hip pain caused by medical conditions. Ask your chiropractor today if custom orthotics would benefit your health today!
