What is Chiropractic Care?


Chiropractic Services and Treatments

Living in Orlando allows us to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle year round. However, from time to time we all suffer from discomfort or pain due to being active. When this occurs, Dr. Mark of Ashley Chiropractic in Orlando can help get you back up and running and back to your normal physical routine.

Some of the conditions Dr. Mark can help with include:

Auto Injuries

It’s rare to come out of an auto accident completely unscathed. Even minor accidents can cause injuries to the back and neck. Unfortunately, many of these injuries do not manifest themselves immediately due to the shock of the event.

Headaches & Neck pain

Unusual headaches can be the sign of irritated nerves in the neck. Misaligned vertebrae can also cause headaches. Not surprisingly, our modern lifestyles and habits including the prolonged use of computers, can result in damage to the neck, shoulders and upper back resulting in headaches. A chiropractor can not only treat you but also provide guidance to prevent this problem from recurring.

Low & Mid Back Pain

Low and mid back pain is not always so obvious. While we often associate this with sharp stabbing pain that causes a person to freeze up and not be able to move without extreme discomfort, low and mid back pain can also include:

    • Persistent stiffness
    • Consistent aching
    • Sharp yet momentary pain
    • Numbness
    • Tingling

Back pain can also include pains in the tailbone, hips, buttocks and thighs. If you’re experiencing any kind of back pain it is best to consult Dr. Mark at his Orlando chiropractor office before the condition worsens. This is especially true if the pain worsens when you bend.

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are injuries that occur during athletic activity. While the headline grabbing injuries are quite extreme, such as compound fractures on the playing field, and require surgery, the typical sports injury is from either over using a joint or suddenly using a joint, resulting in a sprain.

Typical sports injuries include:

    • Sprains
    • Strains
    • Contusions
    • Pulled muscles
    • Dislocated joints
    • Inflamed joints
    • Head injuries
    • Spinal injuries

Dr. Mark can help with all of these. Not only will they treat the immediate symptoms of pain, discomfort and loss of mobility, but they can recommend a course of physical rehabilitation to rebuild and restore functionality.  Contact our Orlando chiropractor office today for a sports injury consultation!

Work Injuries

While some workplace injuries require emergency room medical attention, many require the attention of chiropractor instead. These include:

  • Back injuries – sprains, strains, disc problems, shooting pains
  • Neck injuries – sprains, strains, loss of motion
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tendonitis
  • Shoulder problems – torn rotator cuff
  • Numbness, pain or tingling in the limbs

Dr. Mark can help with workplace injuries and ensure that recovery is quick so that you can get back on the job.  Call or visit our Orlando chiropractor office today for your work related injuries!

Next Steps

If you or someone you know is suffering from any of these, consult Dr. Mark to learn if chiropractic treatment would be effective in reducing or eliminating pain and discomfort. The benefits of chiropractic treatment are often greater than other forms of medical treatment such as painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs or even surgery.
