See a chiropractor, take care of yourself now and youíll be happier and healthier in the long run!

Headaches: Most headaches are stress-related, as evidenced by the fact that they come and go. Stress irritates the nervous system, resulting in tension in the muscles of the neck and shoulders. The blood to the brain can be reduced, causing lack of oxygen to the brain. Chiropractic care corrects the problem by relieving the pressure on the nerves, which then gets rid of the headaches. Medication, such as aspirin, only masks the pain instead of handling the actual cause of it.

Fatigue: Fatigue usually comes from nervous exhaustion and improper nutrition. When the nervous system is irritated, you become tense and have trouble getting complete rest. Chiropractic removes the tension from the nervous system, allowing you to be more at ease, to rest better, and to absorb nutrients more efficiently.

Neck, Shoulder, Back Pain or Tension: Back pain is caused by the build-up of tension in the spine and muscles. Chiropractic uses gentle, effective techniques to relax the build-up of tension and relieves the pressure from your spine and nervous system.

Sleep Disorders: People who do not sleep well are tense and cannot easily relax. This is caused by a build-up of tension in the body through irritation to the nervous system. Chiropractic relieves the tension in the spine. Reducing the pressure on the nervous system allows you to be less tense, more relaxed, and therefore you would sleep better.

Irritability/Mood Swings: A person who is irritable or moody can be this way due to tension that has built up in the muscles and spine, irritating the nervous system. Chiropractic gets rid of the tension in your body, allowing you to be more at ease with yourself and others.

Digestive Trouble: Digestive problems are known to be related to tension and stress. A nervous stomach is caused by an irritated nervous system. Irritated nerves connected with the colon can result in digestive malfunction. One of the top ten manifestations that can result from a car accident can be digestive trouble due to damage to the spine and nervous system.

Allergies/Sinus Problems: A person becomes overly sensitive to their surrounding environment when their nervous system is hypersensitive from stress. This can be brought on by falls, poor posture, accidents, tension, stress, or lack of exercise. If we examined you and found irritation to the nerves that go to your sinus and we were able to correct that, you would function normally.
