Some experts estimate that up to 70% of the stability of the cervical spine arises from these deep neck muscles, particularly those in front of the spine.

In addition to spinal manipulation, doctors of chiropractic often use other conservative therapies to reduce pain and improve function in patients with neck pain. When it comes to neck conditions involving herniated disks, radiating arm pain (“radiculopathy”), strains, facet syndromes or sprains, and myofascial pain, cervical traction is one such option.

Unable to walk as a new mom until.. Dr. Heidi!

The day before I went into labor my lower back, for no real apparent reason, started to hurt. I have had minor low back issues in the past and have gone to 4-5 different chiropractors over the last 10 years pretty sporadically. When this back pain appeared I was a little more concerned since I… Read more “Unable to walk as a new mom until.. Dr. Heidi!”

Prevent Back Pain

I had persistent lower back pain that would seem to ‘turn off and turn on’ randomly. During certain periods of ‘pain on’, I could not sit for more than 5 minutes without pain. It was impossible to exercise or enjoy any activities. I took a lot of aspirin and went to a chiropractor about 4… Read more “Prevent Back Pain”

Insightful Life Changing Help

Prior to coming to see Dr. Heidi, about a month ago, I had gone through two surgeries. The first was approximately 4 years ago and was an SI joint fusion on the left side.

Really, really BAD headaches!

Headaches! Really, really BAD headaches! That is the first thing that brought me to my chiropractors’ office. Not mild headaches…I’m talking nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to sound. I used to wake up in the morning, about once a month or every 3 to 5 weeks, sometimes more often and these headaches were so bad that… Read more “Really, really BAD headaches!”
