One of the main causes of pain and disease in the human body can be traced to improper alignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column. This is called a subluxation. Through carefully applied pressure, massage, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints, pressure and irritation on the nerves is relieved and joint mobility is restored, allowing your body to return to its natural state of balance, called homeostasis. Put another way, when the bones in your spine are allowed to go back to their proper positions, the nerve energy can resume its normal flow and your body's natural healing processes can function properly.

In general, proper chiropractic treatment of your body's lumbar, or lower back, region, involves very little risk and the rewards can be significant.

Chiropractic or osteopathic manipulations can be especially helpful in relieving pain for facet joint injuries, osteoarthritis, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction, because such conditions respond well to mobilization. Moreover, scores of patients with chronic headaches, sinus problems, high blood pressure, ear infections, leg pain, arthritis, and many other illnesses have reported significant relief after chiropractic therapy.

Increasingly over the past few decades, the medical community has come to accept and recognize chiropractic care as a valid form of treatment for a variety of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, and as a conservative treatment option for patients with lower back pain. Moreover, many medical doctors recognize a chiropractic diagnosis and accept it as the first line of treatment for functional disorders of the entire musculoskeletal system.

Studies by leading medical journals in recent years have confirmed the benefits of chiropractic care:

1. A 1993 report by the Ontario Ministry of Health concluded that chiropractic care was the most effective treatment for lower back pain. The agency also recommended that chiropractic care be fully integrated in the Canadian government's health care system.

2. In 1994, the federal Agency for Health Care Policy and Research published its Clinical Practice Guidelines, which asserted that spinal manipulation was effective in reducing pain and speeding recovery among patients with acute low back symptoms without radiculopathy.

3. A 1996 New England Journal of Medicine study of outcomes and costs for acute low back pain found that patients treated by chiropractors were significantly more satisfied than those who saw primary care, orthopedic or managed care practitioners.

4. A 1996 study in the journal Spine echoed that study and found that patients who sought chiropractic care were more likely to feel that treatment was helpful, more likely to be satisfied with their care, and less likely to seek care from another provider for the same condition, compared to those who sought care from medical doctors.

5. In 2001, the Center for Clinical Health Policy Research at Duke University concluded in a study that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for cervicogenic headaches, or those that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.

Back Pain

Chronic or intermittent back pain can be draining and make your life miserable. Dr.Titian can help relieve your pain whether it is caused by a misalignment of the spine or is a result of an injury. From low back pain to radiating pain along your entire spine, we will find a treatment that works for you.

Whiplash and Neck Pain

Whiplash often occurs as a result of a car accident, but what many people do not know is that it can also be caused by countless other situations, as mild as they may seem when they happen. Whiplash can even be caused by an inadequate sleeping position. Many people dismiss the pain thinking that the soreness will go away on its own, which only makes the injury worse. Dr. Titian will be able to determine whether treatment for whiplash is needed.

Sports Injuries

Sports injuries aren't always as simple as a sprained ankle, stretched ligament or broken bone. They often require attentive chiropractic care to mend properly without leaving long-term damage and pain. If you have been injured while practicing your favorite sport and are in pain despite having been treated for the initial diagnosis, Dr. Titian may be able to help.

Headaches and Migraines

Occasional headaches are common and most people take a few aspirin and forget about them. If, however, you find yourself suffering from headaches or migraines frequently, you may have a more serious, underlying condition that can be evaluated and treated by Dr. Titian. Conditions such as whiplash and misaligned spines can often cause chronic or frequent headaches and migraines, so getting a professional opinion is strongly recommended.

Arthritic Pain

If you are living with chronic arthritic pain, you may have been told that your only option for relief is to manage your pain by taking pain killers as needed. You may be surprised to learn that Dr. Titian can in many cases bring you blessed relief from arthritic pain without prescribing costly medication.
