If you are in pain due to an accident or a chronic condition, our chiropractor, Dr. Ricks, can help. We provide treatment for several different conditions at Advantage Spine and Disc in Boise. We will create a treatment plan to reduce your pain and encourage the healing process.
Whiplash is a common injury caused by car accidents, physical assaults, and sports injuries. It occurs when your head and neck are forced in one direction and then another quickly, similar to the way a whip cracks. This condition causes neck pain, back pain, stiffness, tenderness in the back and shoulders, and several other symptoms. Our chiropractor can use spinal manipulation to realign your spine, which addresses the injury directly and provide pain relief.
The discs in your spine are soft and have a jelly-like center. They are encased in a tougher, rubbery exterior. When the soft center inside of the disc pushes through a crack, it causes a condition called a herniated disc. Our chiropractor can use spinal decompression to treat this condition. This method will relieve the pain and other symptoms associated with this condition.
Scoliosis occurs when there is a sideways curvature in your spine. This condition can cause pain, and in severe cases, difficulty standing up straight. Our chiropractor can use spinal adjustments to treat the curvature without the need for surgery.
Chronic Headaches or Migraines
If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, a chiropractor can help. Regular chiropractic care can reduce the frequency of your headaches or migraines and reduce the severity when you get one.
If you have back pain due to a sprain or strain, our chiropractor can help. We can use spinal manipulation, heat and cold therapies, and ultrasound therapy to treat the pain.
There are several causes of shoulder pain such as dislocations, frozen shoulder, and rotator cuff injuries. The pain and inflammation that is associated with these injuries can be treated by a chiropractor. We will use several treatment methods to relieve your shoulder pain.
Sciatica is a term that relates to pain and other symptoms that radiate along the sciatic nerve. Sciatica may be felt as a sharp shooting pain from your hip, down your buttocks, then down the back of one of your legs. Many people with this condition compare it to an electrical shock. Our chiropractor can use spinal manipulation to reduce the pressure on the sciatic nerve, which can improve the condition.
