There are many reasons to see a Chiropractor. It can be simply for a ‘wellness check’ and see how your spine and nerve system are functioning, to acute back and neck pain.

Typical reasons include: low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, arm and leg stiffness and pain, or simply because you want to ensure your health is optimized.

Whatever your reason is, we are here to support you and ensure you will be as healthy as you wish to be.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative Disc Disease occurs when the soft disc material between the spinal vertebrae breaks down and ‘wears out.’ It’s a permanent condition that can result in leg pain, numbness, chronic burning into the arms or legs, and, unfortunately more.

Chiropractic, Massage, and Physiotherapy can all help to alleviate the symptoms and attempt to restore function in the spine.

For degenerative disc disease, an ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of cure.

You’ve no doubt heard the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”

We know that keeping your body healthy is critical – no one ever complained of being too healthy!
