Conditions Treated With Our Lancaster Chiropractor
Staff at Allied Physical Medicine
You're a part of the team here at Team Wellness! We want to know about your lifestyle, symptoms, personal and family history and your particular goals. All of this helps us treat and manage your condition more effectively. Our Lancaster chiropractor staff—led by Dr. Marc Cubeiro, Dr. Shaver, and Dr. Val—has experience diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions, some of which are listed below.
Sciatica is a syndrome involving compression of the sciatic nerve (one of two in your lumbar spine). When compressed and irritated, it can cause severe pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the buttocks and leg. One of the ways we treat sciatica at our clinic is through spinal decompression, which can reduce pressure on the injured nerve root, allowing it to start the healing process fully.
Headaches and Migraines
Tension headaches tend to cause a tight band-like sensation around the head. Migraines are considered "severe" throbbing headaches (thought to be related to the nervous system and circulatory system function) and are generally accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity. Chiropractic care may reduce headache frequency and intensity by addressing poor posture, stress, and other contributing factors.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition causing widespread pain and fatigue. Chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue mobilizations ease pain and muscle tension, improve mood, and relieve stress.
Neck Pain and Back Pain
Neck pain and back pain lasting longer than 3 months is considered chronic, and is often caused by osteoarthritis (joint inflammation, usually due to cumulative stress), degenerative disc disease (wear and tear damage to the disc), disc herniation (a rupture in the disc), and disc bulge (a disc protrudes out of alignment), stenosis (narrowing of bony passageways within the spine), and even scoliosis (abnormal C-shaped or S-shaped curving of the spine).
Joint mobilizations and spinal adjustments can trigger whole body healing and relieve pain by stimulating the production of natural painkillers in the body. Other services that help with back pain include postural re-training and ergonomics training (so you move more efficiently throughout the day), as well as corrective exercises to improve core stability and maintain your improved alignment.
Our chiropractors also utilize additional treatments such as cold laser therapy to decrease inflammation and pain related to the above and other acute and chronic conditions, including those caused by sports injury, personal injury, work injury, and auto accident injury. This may include conditions such as plantar fasciitis, muscle strains, tendonitis, ligament sprains, tech neck, and more.
