Body Aches & Pains

Let’s face it!  No matter how active or inactive you are physically, body aches and pains are a part of life.  Most body pains are simply a result of improper body balance.  Technology these days is playing a major role in getting our bodies out of balance particularly in the underlying bony structures and throwing off the natural curves in our spines.  Sitting at desks all day, studying, driving, texting, etc are major contributors to throwing our bodies “out of whack”. This leads to improper excessive loading on our joints and discs as well as chronic, excessive tension in our muscles.

At Discover Health and Wellness DTC our goal is to re-balance the the body in order to take the chronic tension and pressure off of our joints, muscles, and most importantly our nervous system.  At Discover Health & Wellness DTC we address the source of our patients’ ailments and not just simply treat the symptoms

Growing Pains

There Are Ways Chiropractic Care Can Help With Your Child’s Growing Pains.

Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve pain and swelling caused by growing pains. Routine chiropractic care provides children with a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications, which are often prescribed to help them manage their pain and swelling.

Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by growing pains.

To see if chiropractic care is right for your child, the chiropractors at Discover Health & Wellness will perform a consultation, examination and if necessary, we will use diagnostic imaging such as an x-ray. Based on the findings of our chiropractic exam and consultation, we will develop a plan that is best for your child.

Leg & Foot Pain

Legs are generally abused from standing or sitting for long periods of time. It is important to stretch, massage, and incorporate joint movement to get pain relief. The knee is a complex joint influenced by muscles from above and below the joint. Knee instability is often compensated for by increased muscle tension in the leg muscles and shortening of the iliotibial tract (large connective tissue structure on the outside of the leg).
Your feet serve as a strong base to your body when you’re standing and walking. There are times, however, when your feet and body may benefit from extra support by wearing custom foot orthotics. As part of the assessment, a chiropractor’s evaluation may include observation, gait analysis, functional analysis and neurological and orthopedic testing among others. This will help the chiropractor determine if custom orthotics are appropriate for a patient. In some cases, off-the-shelf orthotics may be best suited to meet the needs and goals of the patient.

Shoulder & Arm Pain

The cause of many instances of shoulder or arm pain is obvious. You do something to injure the arm or shoulder and immediately feel pain, such as in an auto accident. You might have broken a bone or dislocated your shoulder. The resulting pain might range from an annoying ache to an acute pain that makes it hard for you to use the injured arm.  Whiplash injuries, common in auto accidents, can also cause shoulder and arm pain.

Shoulder and arm pain might be referred from some other region of the body, as when someone suffering a heart attack feels pain in the left shoulder and down the left arm. The pain might also be referred from nerves associated with the joints in the upper spine or “trigger points” in the back, which are particularly responsive to chiropractic spinal adjustments designed to treat such problems.
