At some point everyone will experience some sort of back pain. The ranges can be a slight twinge in your back that is uncomfortable and frustrating to pain that can be completely debilitating.
Chiropractic care serves as a preventative treatment to impending back pain or as a relief to whatever degree of pain that you are currently experiencing.
Dr. Sheehan's goal is to be an outstanding source of relief to Back pain and to provide his patient's with a pain free way of life.
If you are experiencing migraines and symptoms associated such as nausea, vomiting, light and noise intolerance depression and irritation, you may have a structural issue that needs chiropractic care.
What moves the spine out of line? Repetitive stress, trauma, developmental issues. All of these can put pressure or irritate your nerves causing tightness in the upper cervical spine that may lead to migraines or headaches.
Seeing a chiropractor will help to align the spinal column, relieving the tightness that is pushing on irritated and compressed nerves, and help to relieve the extreme symptoms of headaches and migraines that can leave you down and out.
Whether you are dealing with pain in the lower back that radiates down to your leg and into the foot or if you are experiencing pain in standing for long periods of time with weakness tingling and numbing into your leg, the root cause may be due to a misalignment.
Do you feel a pinched feeling in your back that sends tingling sensations down your leg when you bend over to pick up that piece of paper? That is Sciatica.
Sciatica is common when there are subluxations or misalignments and nerve impingement. This may be due to poor posture, repetitive use, accidents, pregnancy or trauma. Dr Sheehan is experienced and trained in identifying the source of sciatica, creating a treatment plan with the patient and helping to restore the body's natural alignment.
Scoliosis starts when there is a curve or minor bend in the spine. After the spine curves more than 10 degrees it is diagnosed as scoliosis. There can be serious health consequences experienced with extreme cases of scoliosis.
Once issues are identified through Chiropractic examinations, Dr. Sheehan, who is trained in scoliosis will complete an assessment and discuss a treatment plan to slow down and stop the progression of scoliosis. Through specific spinal adjustments, Dr. Sheehan will take a noninvasive approach.
