Littleton Chiropractic Clinic Treats Highlands Ranch and Englewood Patient Pain
Chiropractic care is based on the belief that the body is an amazing machine with the equally amazing ability to heal itself naturally – provided all its parts are in working order. One major part that needs to be aligned properly is the backbone. County Line Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Massage, under the direction of chiropractor Dr. Craig Lewis, has been successfully treating the Littleton, Highlands Ranch and Englewood communities for years, offering chiropractic care backed by extensive experience, a knowledgeable staff and a gentle, healing touch.
Our Chiropractor Provides Care for Personal Injury Pain, Bulging Disks, Subluxation and Related Conditions
A back-healing program ensures the spine is in proper alignment for optimum function, mobility and ease of movement for the rest of the body. The spine is more than a series of vertebrae, it is an entire system made up of bones, muscles and nerves that affect every area of the body. If the spine is misaligned or otherwise suffering from an injury or recurring condition, such as poor posture, a number of different problems can result.
Pain is one of the most common reasons people seek out our chiropractor, yet pain is not always initially evident. Whiplash or other forms of personal injury can cause immediate damage while the pain can take weeks or even years to surface, even if the body is suffering internally for all that time.
Subluxation, which occurs when one of the vertebrae moves out of position, can lead to pain, as can a herniated or bulging disk. Sciatica is another common cause of pain, brought about by a pinched sciatic nerve that runs through the leg. Even if no pain is involved, a misaligned spine, if left untreated, can further degenerate and lead to even greater health issues.
Treatment programs can not only successfully alleviate the pain but they can also get to the root of the problem to treat the cause behind the pain. Dr. Lewis begins each program with a thorough examination and evaluation of each patient to ensure he employs the most effective techniques tailored to each individual situation. One of the most common techniques he uses at our Littleton and Highlands Ranch area clinic is an adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation. A spinal manipulation moves a joint to the fullest range of motion for which it was designed, which is beyond its typical use, to help restore it to the proper position.
The initial adjustment can be followed by subsequent visits to our chiropractor for minor adjustments or a physical therapy program that helps strengthen the affected area and restore it to its full range of motion. Physical therapy generally consists of a series of stretching, bending and gentle corrective exercises patients can do at home and in our Littleton and Highlands Ranch area clinic. By complementing spinal care with therapeutic exercises, we help patients recover faster and to a greater extent.
