What is Numbness and Tingling

If you are experiencing numbness or tingling, you need to take it seriously, because it is your body telling you that something is wrong!

These indicators to a HealthSource Physician allow them to find the source of the issue and resolve it BEFORE it turns into a serious, lifestyle-altering condition!

Most tingling happens in the head, eyes, fingers, hands and feet; the extremities where the source of the pain is radiating down to the farthest reaches.

HealthSource Physicians use Chiropractic adjustments, in conjunction with therapy, progressive rehab, exercise, stretching, and nutrition to find the source, relieve the issue and pain, and keep it from coming back.

Call your HealthSource Physician today to schedule your wellness screening and put a stop to your numbness and tingling today before it turns into something serious!

Before you consider surgery for that nagging shoulder injury

Before you consider surgical options to your shoulder pain, come visit with your HealthSource Physician. If we find you need surgery for your shoulder injury, we’ll be the first to tell you, but so many times, you have a Locked-Up Shoulder, and that equals debilitating pain!

At HealthSource, we use what we call Progressive Rehab, an approach that can correct so many problems when traditional methods fail.

We start with muscle release to unwind shoulder knots, restore power, unlock stiff joints and free trapped nerves.

We then combine with Chiropractic adjustments to unlock he bones and joints in the back, neck, and shoulders.

Next, we implement advance stretching techniques to get you more limber and loose so you heal faster and stay that way longer even without us.

We mix in soothing therapies to squelch the hurt, calm injured, aching tissues and reduce painful swelling fast.

Finally, we re-tool, rebalance and rehab the weak areas so they don’t fall right back into the same painful bad habits of movement.

Here is one testimonial from Bob Conway, a HealthSource Patient – “If I laid on my arm, my shoulder would lock in that position. I could hardly get my wallet out of my back pocket and couldn’t play catch with my kids. I thought I needed surgery. After the first treatment, I was throwing at 70%. After 3 treatments, I am now PAIN FREE!”

So it’s time for YOU to get out of pain from simple activities like swinging a golf club, throwing a ball, or even shaking hands! Call HealthSource today to schedule your shoulder pain evaluation and get back to your active life!

What is Ankle PAIN

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome  refers to a passageway in the wrist through which nerves and the flexor muscles of the hands and fingers pass. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome  can cause pain, as well as tingling and numbness in your hand, and stems from the buildup of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including incorrectly typing on a computer keyboard, as well as pregnancy.

Many times, medical doctors will immediately jump to evasive non-surgical solutions. At HealthSource, we prefer to treat the issue with non-evasive nerve release techniques and therapies before ever considering surgical alternatives.

Please call your HealthSource Physician today to talk about Carpal Tunnel treatment and prevention, especially if you are just starting to experience symptoms and pain in your hands and fingers.

Whats a Herniated Disc

A Herniated Disc is where the gel-like inner substance of the disc breaks through the rubbery outer structure of the intervertebral disc. Most herniated discs occur in the lumbar region of the spine because that part carries most of your weight. As we age, we are more at risk for herniated discs because each year, the elasticity and water content of the disc reduces. Herniated discs can also occur from incorrect lifting or a twisting movement. Bulging Discs are more susceptible to becoming herniated if not treated.

A herniated disc can cause a wide-variety of pain throughout the body. While many traditional medical doctors will jump quickly to evasive surgical procedures, at HealthSource, we look for non-evasive treatments like chiropractic care and spinal decompression therapy before ever recommending surgical alternatives.

Contact your HealthSource Physician today to have a vertebrae screening and look at potential treatments and therapies that can relieve the pain you are experiencing. We look forward to helping you return to an active, healthy lifestyle!

Does Scoliosis have you down, Maybe we can help

scoliosisScoliosis is defined by an abnormal curve with the spine, and can affect a wide range of ages, from young children to older adults. This condition can lead to an unbalanced posture as well as back pain, and is known for pain to get worse unless the condition is treated.

From the side, the spine forms 3 curves at the neck, midback, and lowback. When you look at the spine from the back, it should form a straight line; if it curves, instead, it is called scoliosis.

According to the National Scoliosis Foundation: “Chiropractic care has been instrumental in the treatment of scoliosis for several years. Chiropractic care will continue to be recognized as a valid treatment .”

If you already have been diagnosed with Scoliosis as a child or an adult, your HealthSource Physician may be able to help you lead a more active lifestyle through chiropractic care, progressive rehab, and wellness.

If you have a child that has never been screened for Scoliosis, it is one of the services that your HealthSource physician offers to the community. The best time to catch scoliosis is before it begins to impact your child’s life!

So schedule a visit today to your HealthSource Physician to schedule your Scoliosis screening for the entire family!

What is Sciatica

Do you know What Sciatica is? This condition is very painful

SciaticaThe Sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body. It begins at the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebra and the first few segments of the sacrum. It runs vertically downward into the back of the thigh, behind the knee and then goes into the calf muscles and the feet.

Sciatica is a symptom of spinal disorder and creates pain that travels down through the nerve and may be related to MANY areas of pain that you are experiencing.

Many times a bulging or ruptured disc can irritate the sciatic nerve and cause pain, tingling, or numbness through the extensions of the nerve throughout the lower back and lower body.

A visit to your HealthSource Physician will help determine a proper treatment plan to reduce or obliterate the pain that you are experiencing. From a simple adjustment to spinal decompression, we have helped thousands of patients around the country escape the pain from Sciatica.
