Some of the most commonly treated conditions which benefit from chiropractic care are:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Sciatica (leg pain)
- Shoulder/arm/hand pain
- Disc problems
- Prenatal back discomfort
Certain spinal conditions such as osteoporosis, advanced arthritis, and/or disc problems, may require specialized chiropractic techniques. These include:
- Activator Technique
- Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique
- Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
These methods of adjustment do not produce the same "popping" or "cracking" that is associated with other spinal manipulation techniques. Apprehensive patients, and those patients who would rather not hear or feel the effects of spinal manipulation, can also benefit from non-force or low-force adjustments.
Dr. Dollinger determines which techniques and procedures would be most beneficial for each patient following an initial examination. In some, but not all cases, x-rays are necessary to fully evaluate and properly treat your condition.
If we do not feel that we can successfully treat your condition, we will gladly recommend a consultation with another health care specialist.
