Chiropractic as an alternative to opioids for many people who are suffering. This is great news for people concerned with addiction, which is becoming a very big problem these days.

Chiropractic Is My Drug of Choice
Chiropractors adjust or manipulate spinal and other joints to decrease pain and restore normal motion, so if you have neck pain, lower back pain, headaches, etc., we've got you covered. Chiropractic is relatively painless for most patients, but don't wait until you are so inflamed that any treatment or motion hurts.
In addition to chiropractic care, my drugs of choice are an exercise program, good healthy fruits and veggies, whole grains, and all kinds of unprocessed foods. One of my keys to a healthy lifestyle is eating meat sparingly and drinking plenty of water.

Frozen shoulders can be a detrimental pain for the athlete or even the non-athlete. It can greatly interfere with everyday life and normal activities. What is frozen shoulder? Also know as adhesive capsulitis, it is a condition that is generally characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder, can take months to heal. Don't despair, over time with treatment you will get better. Frozen shoulder is often the result of a lack of activity. For example, people who have had a stroke or masectomy may experience limited motion in their arm over a period of time that leads to frozen shoulder.
What Can Be Done About Frozen Shoulder?
Massage helps, light exercise with small range of motion of the glenohumeral joint, ultrasounds, and cold laser therapy are all helpful but still take time.

Do you have shoulder pain? Are you sure it's from a shoulder injury because neck injuries commonly cause shoulder pain. Everyday someone in our clinic complains of shoulder pain but really the pain is in the space between the shoulder blade and the spine, caused by a neck injury. This is what we would call interscapular pain.
Why Does My Shoulder Hurt from a Neck Injury?
Our muscles get tight around the injury as a defense mechanism. Our bodies are telling us not to use an injured muscle by tightening the surrounding muscles. This makes them so that they are uncomfortable to utilize. In the case of certain neck injuries, the delicate area is so close to the shoulder it can deceive you into thinking that you hurt your shoulder and not your neck. This type of pain starts with stiffness and malalignment in the neck and upper back, and the associated muscles.
See what chiropractic treatment can do for your interscapular shoulder pain. You may be surprised at how effective it can be. Our Roseville chiropractors can help you get back on track.
Sciatica is an irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back and sacral nerve roots. Typically pain goes down the back of the thigh and the leg/calf and into the feet.
Sciatica is a "pinched nerve" and can be caused by a disc bulge, tight piriformis muscle, etc. Chiropractic treatment is a good first line of treatment. Exercise, stretching and therapies such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, cold laser or traction are also helpful.
Sciatica is often confused with a sacroiliac sprain strain. Just below where the lower back stops is the sacrum and pelvic, they are connected at the sacroiliac joints. If a sprain occurs at this joint, pain, swelling and radiating pain occurs into the buttocks and thigh but usually doesn't go past the knee.
If you have pain at or near the dimples just above the buttock, you probably have a sacroiliac sprain.
Our Roseville chiropractors can help you reduce your pain and get you back on track for life. Some times you can have sciatica and a sacroiliac sprain at the same time.
Scoliosis is a side curve of the spine. Normally when you look at the spine from the back it appears relatively straight. If the spine has a significant side curve, usually over 12 degrees, it is considered scoliosis.
A recent study with scoliosis and chiropractic demonstrated a 10-17 degree reduction in spinal curvatures in patients with scoliosis curves ranging from 38-50 degrees. This is a significant reduction in a curvature that can result is respiratory and internal compression. This study also demonstrated a 7 percent increase in respiratory function.
Bracing, although sometimes necessary, results in muscle weakness as well as a lot of difficulty with normal activities of daily living, especially school. Results from bracing vary greatly. Bracing is though to be successful if the curve does not progress or decreases by 5 percent. This condition most often affects young girls 8-16 years old, although boys are often affected. After bracing, surgery may be still be necessary.
If your child has been diagnosed with a scoliosis or you as an adult have scoliosis try a few visits to a chiropractor and see if that is part of your solution. May sure that exercise and stretching is also used.
