Conditions We Treat

Joint Pain - Central Cape Chiropractic -  Cape Cod, MA
Common symptoms include joint pain, joint tenderness, swelling, warmth over the affected joint and limited range of motion.

Bursitis is the Inflammation of the fluid-filled sac (bursa) that lies between a tendon and skin, or between a tendon and bone. This condition may be acute or chronic. Bursae are fluid-filled cavities near joints where tendons or muscles pass over bony projections. They assist movement and reduce friction between moving parts. Bursitis can be caused by chronic overuse, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, gout or infection. Sometimes the cause cannot be determined. Bursitis commonly occurs in the shoulder, knee, elbow and hip. Other areas that may be affected include the Achilles tendon and the foot.
Joint Pain
Common symptoms include joint swelling, limited movement, morning stiffness, grating of the joint with motion, joint pain in rainy weather—often relieved by rest and worse after exercise or weight bearing—and gradual or subtle onset of deep aching joint pain. Be aware that there also may be no symptoms for this condition.

Joint disease is one of the oldest and most common types of arthritis. It is characterized by the breakdown of the joint's cartilage. Cartilage is the part of the joint that cushions the ends of bones. Cartilage breakdown causes bones to rub against each other, causing pain and loss of movement. Most commonly affecting middle-aged and older people, osteoarthritis can range from very mild to very severe. It affects hands and weight-bearing joints such as knees, hips, feet and the back.

Back pain - Central Cape Chiropractic - Cape Cod, MA
Common symptoms include tenderness, pain, stiffness, pain that radiates into the buttocks or legs, difficulty standing erect, weakness, leg fatigue while walking and discomfort while sitting.

The majority of back pain patients have not experienced any trauma, accidents or major injuries prior to the onset of their problem. The cause of most back pain is the cumulative effect of improper sitting posture, poor work habits, incorrect lifting, lack of proper exercise and other lifestyle-related factors. All of these factors cause stress and imbalances on the spine and eventually pain. This is why people often injure their back by just bending over to pick up a piece of paper. The spine was already compromised and just the simple act of bending was enough to set off the problem. When this occurs, the surrounding back muscles go into spasm to protect the stressed or injured tissues of the back.
In the US, lower back pain is one of the most common conditions and one of the leading causes of physician visits. In fact, at least four out of five adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Thirty-one million Americans have lower back pain at any given time. One half of all working Americans admit to having back symptoms each year. One third of all Americans over age 18 had a back problem in the past five years severe enough for them to seek professional help.

Chiropractic care works on correcting misaligned or out of place vertebrae and can remove the pressure placed on the nerve endings that line the surface of the joint and course through the space between the joints, reducing pain and improving flexibility and function.
Common symptoms of sciatica include weakness of the knee or foot, sensation changes on the back of the calf or the sole of the foot, numbness, tingling, pain from the back to the calf, difficulty walking, inability to move feet or foot and the inability to bend the knee.

Sciatica is defined as pain that radiates from the lower back into the buttocks and down the back of one or both legs, caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerves, the largest nerves of the body. It usually begins as an acute pain in the lower back and then radiates down the back of either or both legs. There are five pairs of nerves that exit the spine in the lower back. These nerves make up what we know as the sciatic nerves. If the vertebrae or bones in the lower back are misaligned or out of place or the disc between the vertebrae are swollen, bulged or herniated, the result is pressure on those nearby nerves. This can cause tremendous pain and normal daily activities become almost impossible.

Spinal Injury - Central Cape Chiropractic - Cape Cod, MA
A subluxation is when one or more vertebrae lose their normal position. They interfere with the nerves they were meant to protect. This interference can cause pressure or irritation on the spinal cord and/or on the nerve roots as they pass out of the spinal column. This misalignment of the vertebrae and pinching of the nerves is called a subluxation and is the most common aspect of what doctors call the vertebral subluxation complex.

Common signs of subluxation are headaches, pain at the base of the skull, pain or numbness of the face, stiffness or loss of normal movement of the neck, neck pain, shoulder, arm and hand problems including pain, numbness and loss of strength. It causes nerve related problems involving eyes, ears, nose and throat. Other results include tension between the shoulders, mid-back pain, pain wrapping around rib cage, problems affecting the heart, lungs, stomach, gall bladder and other digestive organs.
Common symptoms of tension headaches include dull pain, pressure-like generalized pain, worse pain in the scalp, temples or back of the neck. These headaches feel like a tight band or vise on the head. They can either occur as an isolated incident, occur constantly or daily, and are worsened or triggered by stress, fatigue, noise or glares. They can result in sleep disturbances.
