Whether you need help with a chronic pain condition, an acute injury, a systemic disorder, or even a safe weight loss strategy, you can very likely find what you seek here at Premier Family Chiropractic. Our Brentwood chiropractor, Dr. Quinn W. Uzelmann, makes use of multiple healing modalities such as chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, and weight loss strategies to help you attain a higher level of comfort, strength, flexibility, neurological function and overall wellness, regardless of what health conditions you may currently be contending with. Here are a few of the basic categories of conditions we successfully treat.
Injuries can strike you when playing sports, working, or simply performing ordinary household tasks. Many injuries to joints are what we call repetitive motion injuries or overuse injuries. Accumulated stress on the joint’s soft tissues leads to swelling, pain, and damage. Tennis elbow (and its close cousin, golfer’s elbow), carpal tunnel syndrome, and runner’s knee are just a few common examples.
Many chronic injuries are a byproduct of postural imbalances and spinal misalignments that throw the person’s weight slightly off-kilter, causing excessive strain on one side and relative muscle weakness on the other. We can diagnose the underlying cause of the injury and then prescribe adjustments, massage and physiotherapy to heal the injury and discourage it from reoccurring.
Chronic Pain Conditions
Our natural techniques can help relieve chronic pain symptoms caused by a variety of conditions. Herniated spinal discs that impinge nerves can cause or worsen many chronic pain issues. These include sciatica (a collection of symptoms such as back pain, neck pain and leg pain), neck pain, backaches, and headaches. Our Brentwood chiropractor can perform adjustments to take the pressure off of sensitive nerves, relieving pain. Excess weight can put painful stress on weight-bearing joints, in which case our weight loss and nutritional programs can help. Sufferers from chronic muscle knots may find our massage therapy service especially helpful for managing their pain.
Joint pain is only one troublesome effect of excess weight. Obesity has been linked to such serious ailments as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, and even some forms of cancer. Our Brentwood chiropractor offers a range of high-quality nutritional supplements as well as periodic wellness evaluations and lifestyle counseling to help you eat better and lose weight. By helping your conquer obesity, we help you conquer all the complications this problem can create.
Since your nervous system sends instructions to every other system in your body, faulty nerve signaling can produce a variety of systemic health issues, including reproductive problems to asthma and allergies. By keeping your spine aligned, we can optimize your nerve function to help resolve or prevent these conditions.
