Back pain

Most people associate chiropractic care with back pain, and while it is a major area of concentration, it certainly isn’t the only one at Align Wellness Center. There are many, many reasons why people develop back pain, and that can lead to discomfort felt almost anywhere else in the body. When you visit us, we’ll diagnose the real cause of your back pain, and then develop a program of treatment which aims at reducing or eliminating that pain altogether. Gentle spinal manipulation will often bring about positive results, as will massage therapy and some therapeutic exercises we will alert you to.

Neck pain

Some neck pains are chronic in nature, meaning they persist for weeks at a time, while others are intermittent and tend to be manifested as twinges, throbbing, or sharp, stabbing pains. The vertebrae of the neck are right at the top of the spinal column, and if that portion of the spine is misaligned in some way, it can cause undue pressure to be exerted on the nerves in that area. This will cause the pain and discomfort you might be feeling in your neck, and it probably won’t go away until the pressure on those nerves is actually relieved by your chiropractor.


One of the most effective forms of treatment you can receive after a traumatic auto accident is chiropractic care. Very often, during an event like an auto collision, a great deal of violent pressure is exerted on your spine in one sudden impact, and it’s very possible that some kind of misalignment or injury will occur to your spinal column. This is exactly what chiropractic care treats, and it’s why that form of treatment is so successful. It may take several sessions to relieve the pain and discomfort you experience after a whiplash event, but ultimately chiropractic care will be your best bet.


Many headaches, both the ordinary ones and migraines, are brought about by enlarged and throbbing blood vessels in the area of the head. Chiropractic care can actually relieve this throbbing and get things back to normal by stretching and adjusting some of your body’s joints, tissues, and bones. In some cases, it might also be helpful to administer massage therapy or acupuncture to treat very specific causes of headaches. Whatever needs your body might have, they can be identified through a sound diagnosis, and then treatment can be administered by a highly skilled practitioner at our Wellness Center.
