Many people think chiropractic was designed to help with low back pain. That’s not true, but most low back pain responds wonderfully to chiropractic adjustments. Misaligned spines and subluxations are the cause of low back pain, and the Chiropractors at Seland Chiropractic are Experts at fixing low back pain!
The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.
The Chiropractors at Seland Chiropractic are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of neck and shoulder pain. Thorough examination of the cervical spine often reveals degenerated and misaligned spinal bones that can be subluxated and putting damaging pressure on delicate nerves. These subluxations can cause neck, upper back and shoulder pain in most patients.
Headaches are a common complaint in our computer-oriented world. Poor posture often occurs when sitting at the computer, and this puts excessive stress on the spine and supporting structures of your body. Stress on the spine causes subluxations in the spine, often leading to migraines and headaches. We use thorough tests, custom exercises and proven techniques to correct your subluxations and relieve your headaches and migraines naturally, so you can enjoy your life again.

Even a “minor” crash can result in serious injuries like ligament sprains. This can lead to chronic pain and disability if not treated properly. In fact, research shows that early treatment is the best way to prevent long-term symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments are effective because they help restore the healthy, normal function of your nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery.
Neuropathy is a medical condition caused by damaged nerve cells and often associated with autoimmune diseases, infections, diabetes, tumors, or hereditary conditions. Peripheral neuropathy currently affects over 20 million people in the United States with symptoms ranging from tingling or burning pain and nausea to muscle spasms, difficulty moving your arms or legs, or atrophy.
Knee pain is increasingly becoming a more common problem in society. It is a complaint we see frequently. The most common complaint associated with knee pain is considered the normal “wear and tear.” Another ailment that affects the knee is osteoarthritis. The symptoms and progression of osteoarthritis and knee pain can be reduced through our individualized approach to chiropractic care.
Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down one or both legs. It is described as dull, achy, sharp, like “pins and needles” or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity from mild to severe, and frequency may range from occasional to constant. The onset is generally gradual and not necessarily associated with a previous event.
Sciatica is also known as radiating or referred pain, neuropathy, or neuralgia.
