  • Osteoarthritis

    This is a term that refers to the overall wearing down of cartilage between the different joints of your body. Many times the joints most affected are major joints such as knees, hips, back and neck. This condition can cause widespread, debilitating pain to the affected areas of the body, and they can cause other parts of the body to wear down due to overcompensation. While painkillers may provide some relief, chiropractic care could be the solution to your problems.

  • Whiplash

    This is a common injury for people that have been involved in car accidents. When a vehicle is impacted in a crash, it causes the vehicle to shift back, forth and side to side rather violently. This has the same effect on your neck and could cause you serious pain long after the accident is over. Whiplash can cause a variety of issues. From soft tissue damage of the muscles in the neck to serious spinal damage, we know how to treat whiplash in the Collinsville Illinois area.

  • Disc Problems

    Intervertebral discs are a common cause of spinal problems and back pain. The discs are located between the vertebrae in the spine. The discs are made of a jelly like substance and cartilage, and they serve a wide variety of purposes such as allowing unimpeded movement of the spine, helping reduce the effects of impacts and much more. Trauma to the spine can cause the discs to herniate, bulge, dislodge or rupture. However, direct injury may not be the only cause. Old age as one of the most common chiropractic conditions can also cause the disc to degenerate.
