Sources of Pain


  • Hip Pain: The hips are considered the foundation of your spine. The hip joints affect the nerves exiting the spine.
  • Shoulder Pain: Many shoulder problems originate in the nerves that branch from the spinal cord and exit through the neck. These nerves can cause radiating pain accompanied by weakness, numbness or tingling in the wrists or hands.
  • Jaw Alignment: Stress, teeth grinding and spinal problems can cause pain and discomfort of the jaw. Chiropractic can restore proper control of involved muscles and ligaments, reducing pain, stiffness, and clicking associated with jaw pain.
