Whiplash

accident-2Whiplash occurs when the neck and head are thrown forward and back or side to side in a violent manner. If a spine has been whipped out of its normal balanced alignment, the first sign of an injury will usually be soreness and stiffness of the neck and/or back muscles. Although these are usually the first signs, you can have whiplash without even realizing it. Symptoms such as aches and pain, headaches, numbness, nervousness, irritability, and depression may not be experienced until months or years after the accident.

TMJ

Temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint where the jaw hinges to the skull just in front of the ear. This joint is held together by a complex system of muscles, tendons, and ligaments which help it move up to 2000 times a day, making it the most active joint in the body. Symptoms of TMJ disorder include clicking or popping in the jaw, headaches, earaches, neck pain, and sensitive teeth.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal structural curving of the bones of the spine. How the bones of the spine line up, one on top of each other, is not straight up and down as it was designed to be. If seen on an x-ray, the bones stack in a kind of side to side wave.

Slipped Discs

Slipped disc (there's really no such thing!) refers to a condition where the pad of tissue between two spinal bones is shifted out of normal position. Discs are important and useful when healthy. The discs allow the spine to support body movement and keep the spinal bones from grinding together when our backs move. The discs also assist the spinal bones to properly protect the spinal cord which carries thousands of nerves through it.

Vertebral discs are layered between stacked spinal bones. The outsides of the discs are made of an elastic mesh like tissue that is fused to the spinal bones. Inside the elastic webbing is a gel-like hydraulic system that is 88% water and helps react to compression.

Sciatica (leg pain)

Sciatica is the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in your body. It runs from your spinal cord all the way down the legs into the toes.

Normally, Sciatica affects only one side of the body. Pain often radiates down the buttock or leg and can range from a tingling sensation to a burning, shooting pain that makes standing almost impossible.

A common cause of Sciatica is the misalignment of the spinal bones in the low back or pelvis. Bed rest and epidural injections have shown to be significantly unsuccessful with Sciatica, in some cases interfering with healing. Chiropractic has been shown to help Sciatica by realigning the spinal bones through gentle manipulation.
