Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a health care profession focused on treating the nervous and musculoskeletal systems by improving the biomechanics of the spinal column by relieving restricted motion and providing a fluid moving column. Gentle spinal manipulation is the primary technique used by our doctors in order to restore proper motion and relieve pain from the hypo mobile (restricted) joint motion and muscle spasm, which commonly is found in combination with restricted motion. This technique prevents degeneration of the spine and enables your nervous system to properly deliver information to the rest of your body via nerve impulses. This optimizes function and allows your body to properly recover from the many stresses endured from daily living.


 

  • Lower Back Pain This can stem from a number of conditions. Form long sustained postural loading to increased activity to deconditioning of the lumbar spine. Chiropractic therapy is the gold standard for treating and relieving low back pain.
    • Disc Herniation A painful condition that occurs when the disc between your vertebrae begins to break down either due to injury or improper biomechanics. This breakdown can cause the middle portion of the disc (nucleus) to protrude and irritate the nerve root creating an extremely painful situation in your back and legs. Your doctor at Bauman Chiropractic has extensive training in the treatment and management of disc herniations to help alleviate your pain and return your disc back to its original natural place.
      • Sciatica A condition which is caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve, a major nerve that supplies the leg and thigh with motor and sensory innervation. This condition can seem debilitating as it characteristically causes pain, numbness, and/or tingling in the legs. Often the sciatic pain is precipitated by lower back and sacro-iliac joints which aren't moving properly causing irritation to the nerves exiting the spine and supplying the leg and thigh.
        • Neck & Arm Pain We have all experienced a "kink in the neck" or stiffness after reading, sleeping or working at a desk job for a long period of time but do you think that this pain or stiffness is normal? Long sustained postures can increase the likelihood of more serious injury to occur as the discs and ligaments associated with the cervical spine conform to the new posture that you are keeping them in. This makes these tissues weaker and less able to respond to forces placed on them when you do an activity. Although the activity may seem trivial to you, it is damaging to the tissues that have been under stress for an extended period of time. Chiropractic manipulation helps to restore proper motion to the cervical spine. Postural correction, rehabilitation, and ergonomic advice will provide long-lasting benefits to alleviate pain and discomfort.
          • Motor Vehicle Collision Injuries A rear-end collision can wreak havoc on not only your car but also on your body. The abnormal "S" shaped curve which occurs with rear end motor vehicle accidents places a tremendous amount of stress and strain on the muscles, ligaments, and joints of the cervical spine which creates neck pain.
            • On the Job Injuries Also known as workman's comp injuries are injuries sustained while on the job. They comprise of a host of injuries and conditions. We specialize in workplace wellness and offer an assortment of options to get you out of pain and feeling better so that you can better live and perform in your occupation.
              • Extremity Injuries Injuries to your arms and legs can have a direct negative affect on your spinal health. We search for the root cause of spinal pain by assessing and treating injuries to the extremities. As specialists in the musculoskeletal system, we are heavily trained in the treatment and management of extremity injuries.
                • Headaches This pain can be caused from a multitude of conditions ranging from restricted motion in the cervical spine to poor diet to high blood pressure just to name a few. We determine the cause of the headaches and offer the appropriate therapy whether it is spinal manipulation, diet and exercise advice, massage therapy, or a referral to the appropriate provider if necessary.
