Conditions Treated by our Westchester Chiropractor
When you have Joga Chiropractic Center on your side, you have a potent ally in the fight against a wide range of health challenges. Our chiropractor in Westchester CA, Dr. Viktorija Joga, can prescribe multiple healing modalities to address conditions such as:
Upper or lower back pain may be caused by everything from muscle strain and disc problems to chronic misalignment or even pregnancy. We can ease your pain through core training sessions (to strengthen your back muscles), chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy and more.
From the posture-related pain of "tech neck" to the acute agony of whiplash, neck pain can involve discs, vertebrae, muscles, connective tissues and/or cervical nerve roots. Our gentle, precise chiropractic techniques can restore proper cervical alignment. Massage can soothe injured or tense neck muscles.
Shoulder or Knee Pain
Shoulder and knee joints can take a lot of punishment, suffering from tendinitis, bursitis and other problems as a result. We can correct your musculoskeletal balance and prescribe rehabilitative exercises and physiotherapy to restore normal joint function.
A herniated disc can protrude onto nearby nerves, causing pain and other neurological symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments can help guide the disc back into a more normal configuration, while our core training programs can help strengthen the muscles that support a more disc-healthy posture.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Over time, discs naturally lose some of their hydration, causing them to flatten out in a way that stresses the spinal joints. Our chiropractic techniques can help lessen the pressure on degenerated discs, minimizing the effects on your spinal column and comfort.
Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the bony "canal" that houses your spinal cord, creating nerve compression and neurological dysfunction. Our chiropractor in Westchester can adjust the spine to optimize the amount of available space within the spinal canal.
A pinched nerve will pass abnormal nerve signals, producing pain, "pins and needles" sensations, lack of motor control and other problems. Chiropractic treatment can shift errant spinal structures back into their proper place -- away from your sensitive nerve tissue.
Sciatica occurs when sciatic nerve roots are impinged by herniated discs or other spinal abnormalities. It causes lower back pain as well as tingling, numbness, pain or weakness in the legs. Our chiropractor in Westchester can administer careful adjustments to release the compressed sciatic nerve roots, eliminating your symptoms without drugs.
Personal injuries can cover everything from slip-and-fall incidents to workplace mishaps that leave you with back pain, neck pain or extremity pain. We can prescribe a comprehensive course of core training, therapeutic massage, and chiropractic treatment to help you recuperate more quickly and fully.
Auto accident injuries can create a perfect storm of acute health problems, from whiplash and sciatica to shoulder damage and seat belt injuries. Untreated auto injuries can promote internal scarring (adhesions) that leave you in constant pain. We can prescribe a holistic auto accident treatment that includes massage therapy, chiropractic adjustment, Graston Technique (to break up scar tissue), and core training to restore your physical function.
Arthritis and Other Joint Pain Conditions
Joint pain conditions such as arthritis or old, nagging injuries can leave you suffering from chronic inflammation and stiffness. Our chiropractic techniques can help optimize the position of joint components. Massage can relieve inflammatory pain, while core training can help maintain a straighter posture, thus minimizing abnormal joint stress.
Fibromyalgia is believed to be the result of neurotransmitter imbalances that greatly amplify the body's responses to pain signals. This syndrome can cause painful muscle knots, headaches, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome and many other problems. We can treat your discomfort through such treatments as massage therapy to break up muscle knots, chiropractic adjustments to normalize nerve function (and treat spinal stenosis, a common issue in fibromyalgia sufferers).
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is an inflammation of the space containing the median nerve. This problem pinches the nerve that serves your thumb and first three fingers. We can prescribe chiropractic adjustments to the wrist bones, massage therapy, lifestyle changes, and other non-surgical solutions for this condition.
Poor workplace ergonomics can put your posture at risk, resulting in painful conditions such as tech neck. Our chiropractor in Westchester can identify the specific reasons for your distress can prescribe tech neck treatment, core training, massage, and suggestions for changing your everyday work habits and environment.
