// Hands On Chiropractic and Massage
Chiropractic healthcare focuses on the relationship between the body’s main structures - the bones, the muscles and the nerves - and the patient’s health.
Health can be improved and maintained through chiropractic adjustments. Most patients seek chiropractic care for back pain, neck pain and joint problems. However, many patients choose a chiropractor as their primary care doctor, because they prefer treatment plans that do not rely on drugs or surgery.
Chiropractic healthcare has gained popularity due to its effectiveness. The various techniques used helps relieve pain, improve functionality and restore motion. When people think of the pain and discomfort that can be relieved by chiropractic, many tend to think of back and neck problems. However, chiropractic care can be used to treat so much more.
Here are some of the more common injuries Dr. Hacmac and his staff treat:
Low Back or Leg Pain
Upper Back or Arm Pain
Concussion Diagnosis and Referral
Joint, Knee and Hip Injuries
Arm or Leg Pain
Rotator Cuff Injury
Shoulder Injuries and Pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Widespread Chronic Pain
Arthritis treatment: Arthritis can affect anyone at any age. Arthritis can be caused by several factors such as autoimmune disease, injury, car accidents, infection or general wear and tear due to aging. Chiropractic care has proven to be an effective treatment in providing pain relief which often leads to regaining mobility in affected areas.
Back pain treatment: Problems with your spine may not only limit movement but can also be very painful along the spine or into the arms or legs. Using chiropractic treatments and techniques we can help ease and eliminate a variety of back problems. During this treatment, we will use our hands or specialized tools to adjust and apply pressure around the spine and the vertebrae.
Chronic neck pain treatment: Neck pain treatment can vary depending on the cause. In most cases, we use cervical adjustments with our hands or specialized tools to adjust and put pressure around the spine, thus reducing the pain that is often a result of pinched nerves and/or muscle spasms.
Headache relief: Headaches often start due to stressed neck and back muscles. Sometimes the start due to irritated cervical spine nerves or from altered blood supply to the tissues of the scalp. We treat this problem with our hands-on or light-force adjustments of the neck and back vertebrae and muscles. By realigning the skeleton, we can decrease or eliminate the pain levels of these headaches.
Joint pain treatment: This sort of pain is often caused due to excess bodyweight, incorrect posture, car accidents or previous injuries. While painkillers may offer short-term relief, they don’t address the root cause of the pain and will lose potency after several doses. Treatment for such problems will involve a combination of hands-on adjustments, light-force adjustments, massage therapy, and muscular stretching.
Organ systems treatment: Dysfunction, Dis-ease or Disease processes can be positively impacted through direct chiropractic treatments to the spine. It is based on the principle that a problem in the nervous system affects all the other parts of the body, causing a variety of conditions and injuries. The nerves of the body which relay messages to and from the organs and tissues of the body mostly pass through the spinal column and between spinal vertebrae. Misalignments and boney degeneration in the spine can and does directly impact those messages, potentially creating a poor connection between the body and the brain, thereby seriously affecting the health and function of the affected tissues. Chiropractic helps correct misalignment of vertebrae and allows the nerves to send signals to and from the brain more efficiently. Chiropractic adjustments to the spine can restore normal alignment, reduce interference in the nervous system and enhance the innate power to heal and thrive.
Sprains and strains treatment: Chiropractic treatment is proven to be very effective for sprains and strains. As they heal, we treat joint alignment conditions and may recommend specific exercises to help restore injured muscles and ligaments to their normal health, thereby promoting normal joint function.
Whiplash injury treatment: This commonly occurs because of a motor vehicle collision. Pain can occur anywhere around the neck, arms, back, chest and head depending on the injured tissues. The injuries associated with whiplash and other auto accident injuries can lead to disruption of normal daily activities and sometimes disability. The aim of chiropractic care in treating whiplash injuries is to promote proper healing in the boney and soft tissues of the spine, correct spinal misalignments and improve muscle strength.
