Harbor Chiropractic’s affordable care can help restore and maintain proper joint, muscle and nerve functions. Our experienced chiropractors treat spine and extremity issues that restrict range of motion, reduce strength, slow reflexes and decrease performance. Not only can chiropractic treatments improve your quality of life but help you live with more mobility and less pain. With each patient, we base our recommendation of care on a thorough health history, exam, any imaging results, and our years of expertise in dealing with issues involving joints and soft tissues.
Headaches can be correlated with dysfunction within the neck and upper back. Scientific studies have found that regularly seeing a chiropractor was effective in treating migraines in as many as 75% of subjects. Chiropractic treatments help relieve pressure on the neuromusculoskeletal system, restoring optimal function to the rest of the body and providing pain relief. When your spine is not properly adjusted, the nerves running from your spinal cord out to the body can be affected and negatively impact your health in many ways.
Chiropractic care uses both traction and manipulative techniques to increase the range of motion in every point of the body. Our chiropractors are trained to not only adjust the spine but also the joints and legs in your arms, should you have issues. By stimulating the nervous system and reducing pressure within the joint space, most patients will experience pain relief, an increase in mobility and improved joint health.
Chiropractic treatment employs traction maneuvers and manipulative techniques to decrease pressure on the spine, aiding in the reduction of sciatica pain. Sciatica, which can radiate down the back of the leg or into the groin region, affects more than 3 million people in the U.S. each year. Chiropractic adjustments and spinal rehabilitative care are possible options for treating pain and symptoms associated with these nerve issues.
There are many hormonal and physical changes you’ll experience during pregnancy, and some may have an impact on your posture and comfort. Weight gain can create spinal misalignment and/or postural distortions, affecting nerves, muscles and joint mobility, and a misaligned pelvis can restrict the amount of space available for your developing baby. Regular visits to a chiropractor during your pregnancy can address these issues – and treatments can be beneficial for your little one. Evidence also shows chiropractic care during pregnancy may help reduce the length of labor and delivery.
Our team is trained in the Webster Technique which is a specific chiropractic analysis & adjustment that reduces nervous system stress, balances pelvic bones, muscles & ligaments, and optimizes the mother’s pelvic function in pregnancy and birth.
Running, jumping, falls and accidents are all part of childhood, and can cause spinal misalignments. Many people assume children and infants don’t need chiropractic care because there are no obvious symptoms. However, gently and effectively adjusting a child’s spine is one of the best choices you can make. Parents have reported improvements with their child’s health, such as better sleep, behavior and attitude, help with constipation/bed wetting and improved immune system function.
As we age, the breakdown of our joints may lead to inflammation, pain stiffness and deformity. Joint changes affect nearly all older people. Muscles may become rigid with age and lose tone even with regular exercise. Chiropractic treatments can help with bone and muscle conditions in older people by working to delay the progression of arthritis and other degenerative changes within joint spaces. We utilize different techniques that can help people with osteopenia/osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and joint issues.
