Conditions We Treat
Back pain is one of the most common and debilitating complaints that will affect almost every American at some point in their life. Back pain can originate from your joints, muscles, disc and nerves. Barfield Chiropractic has a proven track record for determining the exact underlying cause of patients’ back pain and effectively correcting the underlying condition to help them get their lives back.
We now live in a technology-based society where our posture must be perpetually hunched forward more than ever before. These postural distortions slowly put extreme amounts of stress on our neck and shoulders, causing neck pain which is now referred to as “tech-neck.” Without proper intervention, this forward head posture will lead to height reduction, abnormal breathing, neck pain and spinal degeneration.
Your sciatic nerves are the largest nerves in your body; they originate in your lower lumbar spine and travel through the buttocks and all the way down your legs. Approximately 40% of Americans will experience sciatica in their life from damaged joints and muscles in the lower back. Let Barfield Chiropractic determine and treat the cause of your sciatica and help you get your life back.
Pain in your shoulder and your shoulder blades can come from damage to your shoulder joints or the muscles surrounding the shoulder. An irritated nerve root in your neck can radiate pain into your shoulders. Barfield Chiropractic has an expert understanding of how your shoulders and spine work together; let us determine the cause of your shoulder pain and what we can do to alleviate it.
Discs are the gel-like cushions in between the bones of your spine that can become damaged and bulge outside of their normal radius. MRI studies have revealed that nearly half of all Americans have some degree of at least one bulging disc. Restoring the proper motion to the surrounding joints with specific treatments to manually heal your disc can retract your bulging disc without the need for a dangerous surgery, which too often does not provide relief at all.
Your knees are among your most complicated joints and are highly susceptible to injuries. Knee pain can be the result of a direct injury to your knee, repetitive overuse of your knees, or radiating pain from your lower back. Left untreated, these knee problems can lead to degenerative arthritis and other disorders. Let us determine the cause of your knee pain and recommend the appropriate treatment for your condition.
Whiplash is an injury to your neck caused by an abrupt jerking motion, which is often the result of a car accident. Even a small fender bender can cause significant injuries to the joints, muscles, discs and nerves in your neck and back. Symptoms following a whiplash injury are usually delayed, as it can take weeks or months for neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches and back pain to appear.
There are several types of headaches and tension headaches are considered to be the most common. Experts believe the underlying cause of tension headaches is a problem in the muscles and joints of your neck impacting the nerves and blood vessels in your head, effectively causing the headache. Barfield Chiropractic has great success at determining if the underlying cause of your headache is a problem in your neck and recommending how to fix it.
Most of us have experienced an injury of some kind while playing sports, which may have happened all at once or developed over time from overuse. Injuries to your joints and muscles will prevent you from moving correctly and alter your coordination. Underlying injuries will lead to degenerative damage, loss of strength, severe pain and further injuries. Let us help you play at your best.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is pain, numbness or weakness in the hand from a swollen median nerve in the wrist. This inflammation can originate from pressure in your wrist, elbow, shoulder or neck. The surgery commonly prescribed elsewhere for carpal tunnel involves permanently slicing the transverse ligament to allow for continued swelling. At Barfield Chiropractic, we can often correct the pressure causing the inflammation.
Scoliosis is the unnatural sideways curvature of the spine that is found in approximately 1 in 30 Americans. The cause of each case is not always known, but it is usually due to a congenital problem, severe degeneration or some type of trauma. Barfield Chiropractic can intervene with specific treatments to reverse your scoliosis without painful bracing or a traumatic surgery.
BACK PAIN DURING PREGNANCY
During pregnancy, hormones are released that relax the ligaments of the pelvis, which can cause the joints in the lumbar spine to become unstable. The rapid changes in posture combined with this new instability often lead to joint misalignment, muscle tension and back pain. Barfield Chiropractic has a long track record of helping women during and after their pregnancy term with safe and effective back pain treatment.
Nerves are communication wires that extend from your brain and spinal cord to all parts of your body. Your nerves are susceptible to being pinched as they travel through the narrow openings in between the bones of your spine. If spinal bones stop moving correctly the nerve openings further narrow, causing pressure on the nerve roots. Barfield Chiropractic specializes in relieving back pain from pinched nerves.
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ) is jaw pain caused by a problem in the joint connection of your jaw to your skull. The joint malfunction will also lead to muscle strain, headaches, a misaligned bite and degenerative changes in your jaw. Barfield Chiropractic has expert training in the treatment of TMJ and receives regular referrals from local dentists.
A chronic lack of proper movement in your joints will lead to wear and tear degeneration. Discs are mostly water and have no direct blood supply, therefore discs completely rely on movement of your individual spinal bones to provide nourishment and rehydration. Barfield Chiropractic can fix the underlying problem and stop the cause of your degeneration, which can prevent permanent damage.
When a body part can no longer move through its normal range of motion, it can interfere with many aspects of your lifestyle. Limited movement can be caused by injuries, degenerative changes, damaged joints and overactive muscles. Successful restoration for any lost range of motion involves addressing both the underlying joint and muscle conditions. We use this process to help you in getting your life back.
