Severe headaches and migraines can affect anyone at any age.  There are three classifications of headaches - cluster, migraine, and tension. According to the American Chiropractic Association, a Duke University study found that chiropractic treatment is highly effective in the relief of tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck, which are the most common type of headaches in the U.S.

Neck and Upper Back

Your neck - also referred to as the cervical spine - is a delicate accumulation of vertebrae, nerves and muscles that work to support your head.  Neck pain is a common complain and is often the result of poor posture, whiplash, osteoarthritis and even stress. If you are experiencing neck pain that won't seem to go away, Dr. Zoe Segree may be your solution.

Shoulder Pain

Many times the shoulder pain is due to a pinch nerve in the neck that runs down from your neck into your shoulder and may travel all the way down to your fingers.  That numbness and tingling sensation is called radicular pain.  Dr. Zoe will examine your spine to find out where the nerve is being irritated, and with gentle and specific treatments, your pain may be managed or even resolved.

Low Back and Hip Pain

You are not alone - Did you know that the leading cause of disability around the world is lower back pain.  In the U.S. alone, an estimated 31 million people are suffering with some type of back pain.  The vast majority of those suffering from back pain is caused by mechanical discrepancies in the spine.  Chiropractors do not actually target pain itself so much as we attempt to treat the underlying conditions responsible for pain.  Many patients who see Dr. Zoe for back pain can achieve relief with simple spinal adjustments and lifestyle changes.

Mid Back Pain

Poor posture and repeated pressure on the spine can lead to mid back pain.  The muscles and ligaments in your back have to work hard to keep you balanced when you slouch.  Mid back pain can also be caused by a pinch or irritated nerve causing that very painful sometimes debilitating stabbing pain in your shoulder blades.  Can chiropractic care help this, yes. The only way to know if you are a candidate for chiropractic treatments is by consulting with a chiropractor for a complete clinical assessment. 

Children & Chiropractic

It does not matter how big or small a spine is, it plays one of the most important roles within the body.  It is never too early to bring your child to the chiropractor.  The birthing process is hard on mama and baby.   By the time they are born, many have minor spinal subluxations that can make them uncomfortable and cause their heads to favor one side.  A very gentle adjustment can correct these issues, helping to reduce irritability and discomfort and a better sleep for all. Having your child examined by a chiropractor will help set the foundation for a lifetime of optimal wellness.
