See below for the many types of services we offer at Chiropractic Care of Lexington!
Do you have dull, achy, sharp, toothache-like, pins and needles, burning, numbness, tingling or an electric shock sensation that begins in your low back/pelvis and travels down one or both legs? These are symptoms of sciatica caused by nerve compression and are treated on a regular basis in our office.
After a few sets of tennis, or an exercise session at the gym, your arm or shoulder suddenly feels stiff. Perhaps a twinge occurs with a specific movement. Maybe you woke up one morning with your head in an odd position. Perhaps the simple task of brushing your hair caused the pain. Does this sound like you? This type of pain is more common than you think.
Does sitting at your computer cause pain in your neck and upper back by the end of the day? Have you ever finished some type of physical activity or just awoken in the morning and just did not feel comfortable in your neck? These are all typical symptoms of neck problems that are caused by misalignments of the spinal segments in the neck and upper back.
The Chiropractic Adjustment or manipulation is performed exclusively by a Doctor of Chiropractic. The gentle thrust is delivered by hand, with an activator tool or Thompson Drop Table. This is performed to correct vertebral subluxation or a misaligned vertebral joint.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is used to realign the components of the spine in order to relieve pressure on a pinched nerve causing chronic pain. This therapy increases circulation to the damaged disc, allowing it to begin the natural healing process. This may relieve disc pressure and also reduce compression of the nearby spinal nerve roots.
