Symptoms Alignment Health & Rehab center Can Help Address
Neck pain can be very uncomfortable and can even cause stiffness of the neck due to a lack of range of motion. A cervical adjustment is performed manually or with an instrument to ease the discomfort, loosen up neck joints and increase range of motion of the cervical.
Headaches and Migraines
Most headaches and migraines are common symptoms of a misalignment in the cervical spine. Any vertebrae that is out of alignment, can create pressure and can cause headache and migraines. A cervical adjustment will correct the misalignment, increase range of motion of the neck and help eliminate the headache and migraines. After an adjustment, many patients experience relief from headaches and migraines.

Low back pain/Sciatic Nerve pain
Chiropractic has been repeatedly shown to be the most effective treatment for low back pain. In fact, major studies have shown that chiropractic care is more effective, cheaper and has better long-term outcomes than any other treatment. This makes sense because chiropractic care is the only method of treatment that serves to re-establish normal vertebral motion and position in the spine. All other treatments, such as muscle relaxants, pain killers and bed rest, only serve to decrease the symptoms of the problem and do not correct the problem itself.
