Patient Questions

The quick answer is it depends. If they can identify the underlying cause of scoliosis, perhaps it can be treated. A thorough exam must be completed. Many times these conditions can be treated, but they may not always resolve 100%. It's best to seek help from an experienced chiropractor if you think you have scoliosis that is causing you problems.

Soreness after a chiropractic adjustment is not uncommon--especially if it has been a long time since your last adjustment, or after your first adjustment. Your chiropractor would hopefully know your situation better than I do, so it would be best to ask your chiropractor. Most of the time, it is okay to exercise after an adjustment, and usually encouraged to strengthen the core muscles that stabilize your spine.

This seems like a quick straight-forward question, but there are many things to consider. A good chiropractor will determine the source of the problem, whether it's a pinched nerve, mechanical low back pain, sciatica, or anything else that may be causing the problem. A great chiropractor will take a thorough history, do a complete exam (perhaps including x-rays or lab work) to determine the underlying cause of your problem (for example, hormone imbalance can amplify your pain--or kidney problems can cause low back pain). Chiropractic care can give temporary relief to symptoms, but if you want lasting relief, you MUST address the CAUSE. This typically cannot be done in a single visit, but usually takes time. I hope this helps.

Vertigo and neck pain can be related. It is important to seek help from a qualified healthcare provider who can identify the underlying cause of both vertigo and neck pain. There may be other serious causes of those symptoms, too that need to be ruled out. A good physical examination and perhaps imaging would be helpful in identifying the underlying cause of your symptoms.

A competent health care provider will take a good history, perform a thorough examination and make appropriate recommendations. What could cause nerve pain? Muscle pinching on a nerve, a disc herniation in your spine, nutrient deficiency, or other systemic problems. Determining the cause will help guide the treatment. Seek out health from a qualified healthcare professional, like a chiropractor or better yet, a functional diagnostic medicine practitioner.

There could be many causes of upper back pain. These causes could include musculoskeletal problems, spine joint problems, muscle problems and things like that. There could also be problems that involve your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, or stomach. Hormones and nutritional imbalances can cause these types of pains or amplify the pain that you are experiencing. Sometimes medications can cause musculoskeletal problems as well like muscle aches or pains. Numbness and tingling are typically associated with nerves, so you may be pinching a nerve as well. It is important for you to get this checked out by a healthcare professional, and I would recommend

If something doesn't feel right, something probably isn't right. It could be a lot of different things. It could be a hip or a foot problem, inflammation, or some other disease process. It's best to have it worked up by a healthcare professional that will take a great history, do a thorough examination including x-rays and lab work, and make the appropriate recommendations.
