Chiropractors treat more than back pain… A great video from BC Chiropractic, as part of their Let’s Talk Back series.
It’s true! Chiropractors like Dr. Burdell treat so much more than back pain. Because the spine is core to your nervous system, spinal problems can cause disturbance or disruption in any system of your body. Our wellness approach looks for the underlying causes, (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time.) This is why we have our patients complete Wellness Screening and a stress survey before we begin treatment. The information they provide plus a consultation at our office will determine the best course of action to get your body balanced and healthy.
If your life is disrupted by pain- in the back, neck, head, or limbs, chiropractic care can help you feel like yourself again. Injuries to the spine can happen at any stage of life and the reasons vary from traumatic injury, like a car crashes, to overuse in the workplace, or even chronic illness. Don’t live with the pain.

Signs can include inattentiveness, moodiness and difficulty getting along with others.
The study can be found in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology.

Here is a testimony from one of our patients who had experienced chronic shoulder pain before visiting our clinic:
“I had a torn ligament in my shoulder that previous doctors had passed over as a sprain. Consequently I went 3 years without relief, my shoulder pain would often cause me to hunch over and I even had lumps of scar tissue in the shoulder. Dr. Burdell used a combination of therapies which include a percussor to break up the scar tissue, a laser to aid healing, and manual adjustment to aid range of motion. The pain is now gone and the lumps with it.” Sue M.
