Conditions Treated by Our Chiropractor
Our chiropractor offers natural healing for your injuries at New Life Chiropractic, serving Long Branch, NJ, and the surrounding area. We're also available to help you manage your chronic pain. The conditions below are the reason you may want to visit us.
Scoliosis occurs when you have irregular curvature in your back. It's often found in elementary-aged kids and adolescents. However, if you never received a diagnosis as a kid, you still have it. This irregular curvature can cause pain and discomfort.
Neck Sprains and Strains
You could develop neck issues if you suffer from a rear-end collision, constantly look down at your phone, or participate in hobbies requiring you to look down for long periods. For instance, getting hit from behind while driving can stress the soft tissue and cause a neck sprain, more commonly called whiplash. This injury may also happen if you play an aggressive sport.
For people who stare down at a phone for prolonged periods, it can stress the soft tissue in the neck. This particular injury is a repetitive stress injury known as strain.
Back Strains, Sprains, and Other Pain
Whether you have a job that requires you to lift items or sit for prolonged periods, you could be at risk of sprain or strain. These injuries can not only cause you pain, but they limit your ability to move.
Herniated and Bulging Discs
Some of our patients may experience a bulging or herniated disc. A herniated disc may occur when you move your back in a usual way that stresses an already vulnerable disc. A tear in the disc causes the contents to seep out, placing pressure on the nearby soft tissue and nerves.
A bulging disc doesn't come from an injury. Instead, you develop this when your discs change with age. The gel-like contents will push on the weakened shell of the disc, causing it to protrude. This protrusion is less likely to cause any symptoms than a herniated disc.
