Here at Lifetime Health and Wellness, we live up to our name by providing care for a wide range of health challenges. Our chiropractor in Broomfield and Westminster can help you with:
Back pain can stem from a number of potential causes and conditions. Upper back pain is often associated with twisted injuries (such as the violent twisting motions in an automobile impact), while lower back pain may be caused by strained muscles. A bulging, herniated or "slipped" disc can also occur at any point along the spine, pinching nerve tissue and causing pain. Degenerative spinal conditions such as osteoarthritis can plague the vertebral joints. Chiropractic care, spinal decompression, massage therapy, therapeutic taping methods, and cold laser therapy can help combat these conditions.
Neck pain often occurs due to cervical spinal issues such as degenerative disc disease, herniated discs and spinal misalignment. The soft tissues of the neck can also be strained by abnormal postural or ergonomic influences, as seen in conditions such as "text neck." An acute injury such as whiplash can cause vertebral, soft tissue and nerve pain simultaneously. We can relieve neck pain through a combination of spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapies, spinal decompression and acupuncture.
Most headaches are caused by tension in the neck muscles, which irritates membranes near the skull. Cervical spinal adjustments and massage therapy can relieve this stress while also correcting imbalances that may contribute to it. Chiropractic care is also highly effective against migraines, reducing both their severity and their frequency. Our chiropractor in Broomfield and Westminster can even administer cranial adjustments to ease the disorienting symptoms of concussions.
Pain in the hip and/or leg may be caused by degenerative arthritis, an acute injury, muscular strain caused by a musculoskeletal imbalance, or even referred signals from a problem elsewhere. It's also a hallmark symptom of sciatica, an impingement of the sciatic nerve roots. Spinal decompression and chiropractic adjustment can relieve sciatica and strain-related symptoms. Cold laser therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture can soothe soft tissue pain and promote healing.
If you're experiencing shoulder pain, you may have sustained an injury to your rotator cuff, the set of muscles and other tissues that articulate the joint. Bursitis, an irritation of the fluid-filled bursae in the shoulder, can also cause shoulder pain, as can "frozen shoulder" (following a long period of non-use) or even neck problems. We can evaluate your shoulder symptoms and administer extremity adjustments, acupuncture, massage and other forms of corrective therapy to restore pain-free function.
Automobile accident injuries can affect the entire body. The strong forces transmitted to the musculoskeletal system can lead to whiplash injuries, upper back pain, lower back pain, sciatica, herniated discs and torn muscles all at the same time. Even if you don't feel symptoms right away, you may have lurking injuries that need to be found and addressed. We can diagnose your injuries and prescribe a holistic rehabilitation and pain relief plan to help you get your body back up to speed.
Personal injuries can happen either in the home or in the workplace. In addition to the acute injuries that can be sustained in a slip and fall incident or heavy lifting mishap, you may develop chronic overuse injuries that cause cumulative damage to joints and tissues. Whatever the nature of your personal or work injury, we can provide chiropractic care, soft tissue rehabilitation, and valuable lifestyle advice for establishing a healthier home or workplace routine.
Sports injuries can involve high-impact jolts that cause acute damage, or they can occur slowly due to repetitive strain. Tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, runner's knee, carpal tunnel syndrome, and plantar fasciitis are all common overuse injuries in the sporting world. Not only can we create an individualized rehabilitation plan to help you feel better and heal faster; we can also administer kinesio taping, periodic "maintenance" adjustments, and massage sessions on an as-needed basis to help you stay in top shape.
Plantar fasciitis a chronic inflammation of the band of connective tissue that supports the arch of your foot. This painful condition, which actually feels worse after you've rested your feet overnight, can be related to poor footwear support, long hours of standing or walking, and abnormal weight distribution. We can literally get you back on your feet through a combination of chiropractic adjustments, massage, cold laser therapy and other supportive techniques.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a wrist inflammation that pinches the median nerve, producing pain and other neurological symptoms in the wrist, forearm, and first three fingers of the hand. Our extremity adjustments and soft tissue techniques could help you avoid surgery.
