GOT PAIN? Feel the Healing Power!

handsky284x423.jpgMany people know that chiropractors are able to help with back pain and neck pain.  Because Dr. Lawrence Teixeira has been trained in Active Release Technique (ART), Graston, and corrective exercises and is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, he is able to address many conditions that some people are not aware of.  He is able to evaluate the biomechanics of how you move.  For example, low back pain could be caused by tight muscles in the legs or an old injury to the foot.  Dr. Teixeira addresses the cause of the problem by freeing entrapped nerves (by bone or scar tissue), increasing range of motion, and decreasing muscle spasm.

Whether it is knee pain, hip pain, or shoulder pain,  Dr. Teixeira can resolve it by looking at it from a new perspective- finding the cause.  Dr. Teixeira will radically change your idea of what a chiropractor can do for you!

Achilles tendinitis

Inflamed Achilles tendon (connects muscle to bone), the thickest tendon extending from calf to heel

Adhesive capsulitis

Pain, loss of motion, inflammation, and adhesions or scar tissue of the shoulder capsule (also known as frozen shoulder or FS)

Ankle injury

Ankle sprains, strains, tarsal tunnel, and more

Arthritis

Inflamed and degenerated joints; most common form is osteoarthritis, or “wear and tear” arthritis, from the natural aging process of the human body

Back pain or injury

Herniated or bulging disks, sprains, strains, pinched nerves, spinal misalignment, muscle imbalances, and more

Bicipital tendinitis

Inflamed bicep tendon (connects muscle to bone) that can cause shoulder pain

Bunions

Chronic foot pain from a bump on the big toe

Bursitis

Inflamed fluid sacs where muscle and tendons interact with bones, most commonly affecting elbows, knees, hips, and shoulder

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Numbness, tingling, or pain in the hand, wrist, or arm caused by a compressed joint/ nerve in the wrist

Chondromalacia

Damage to kneecap cartilage which is commonly a result of long standing muscle imbalances that results in inflammation and pain (also known as Runner’s knee)

Compartment syndrome

Compressed nerves and blood vessels within an enclosed space, leading to muscle and nerve damage and most commonly affecting the forearm or lower leg

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis

Wrist and thumb pain commonly caused by repetitive overuse; results in scar tissue formation

Depuytren’s contracture

Finger curling as a result of thickening tissue in the palm and fingers

Foot pain or injury

Caused by disease, trauma, improper foot mechanics, nerve injury, or more

Frozen shoulder

Pain, loss of motion, inflammation, and adhesions or scar tissue of the shoulder capsule (also called adhesive capsulitis)

Gait imbalance

Uneven patterns of movement while running or walking

Golfer’s elbow

Inflamed inner elbow or medial epicondylitis (similar to tennis elbow — which involves the outer elbow instead)

Golf injury

Golfer’s and tennis elbow, De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, knee and shoulder pain, and more

Hammer toe

Second, third, or fourth toe deformity where toes are bent at the middle joint

Hand injury

Carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, ligament damage, nerve compression, and more

Headache

Tension headaches, stress headaches, migraines, and more

Hip injury or pain

Arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and more

Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome

Thigh injury and subsequent knee pain; commonly a result of muscle imbalances associated with repetitive activities like running, cycling, and weight lifting

Impingement syndrome

Common shoulder condition where weak shoulder or rotator cuff and scapular muscles affect shoulder joint movement; causes inflamed or irritated rotator cuff tendons (impingement syndrome is a rotator cuff syndrome also known as swimmer’s shoulder or thrower’s shoulder); Femoroacetabular impingement affects the hip joint (known as FAI)

Joint dysfunction

Arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, muscle imbalances, and other dysfunctions that alter proper joint movement

Joint hypomobility

Joint does not move enough; the most common joint dysfunction treated by a chiropractor

Join hypermobility

Joint moves too much; commonly treated with rehabilitation, or in severe cases, with prolotherapy

Knee pain or injury

Arthritis, knee ligament tears or sprains, knee cartilage (meniscus) pain, swollen or painful kneecaps resulting in scar tissue, iliotibial band syndrome, muscle weakness, and more

Leg injury

Shin splints, muscle strains and sprains, compartment syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, runner’s knee, joint and nerve problems, and more

Lower back pain

Sciatica, spinal injury, ligament sprains, joint pain, herniated or slipped disc, and more

Muscle imbalance

Can cause shoulder pain, lower back pain, neck pain, and more

Muscle strain

Damage or tearing of the muscle and sometimes its attached tendon; commonly occurs where muscle and tendon meet (also called pulled muscle)

Muscle pain or weakness

Caused by injury, overuse, tension, or disease

Myofascitis

Inflammation of a muscle and its fascial tissue (thin tissue that covers all muscles like plastic cling wrap)

Neck pain

Muscle strain or tension, neck or spinal injury, whiplash resulting from a car accident, and more

Nerve entrapment syndromes

Syndromes with a pinched nerve or compressed nerve (carpal tunnel syndrome is one type of nerve entrapment syndrome)

Performance care

Increasing efficiency of body function and performance by eliminating muscle imbalances, muscle strength issues, faulty biomechanics, nutritional deficiencies, and more (also called performance enhancement)

Plantar fascitiis

Inflammation of the fascia (connective tissue) on the bottom of the foot, and most commonly associated with heel pain due to running or chronic tightness from the foot all the way to the hip region

Post surgical conditions

For example: neck, back, shoulder, arm, knee, hip, leg, and foot pain occurring post surgery as a result of scar tissue, weakness or long standing irritation in any muscle, tendon, ligament, or joint from a previous trauma

Pulled muscle

Damage to the muscle and sometimes its attached tendon; commonly occurs where muscle and tendon meet (also called muscle strain).

Repetitive strain injury

Carpal tunnel syndrome, De Quervain’s syndrome, tendinitis, low back pain, and any other type of repetitive stress injury

Rib pain

Caused by injury, inflammation, stress, or disease

Rotator cuff syndromes

Shoulder muscle damage caused by repetitive motion, overuse, underuse (weak rotator cuff muscles), or trauma (impingement syndrome, or swimmer’s shoulder, is one type of rotator cuff syndrome)

Running injuries

Achilles tendinitis, runner’s knee, iliotibial band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and more

Runner’s knee

Damage to kneecap cartilage that results in inflammation and pain (also known as chondromalacia patella)

Scar tissue

Fibrous tissue that replaces normal tissue after an injury and often results in the muscle or tendon shortening (leading to muscle weakness); over time, scar tissue can limit movement and cause pain

Sciatica

Common form of low back pain and leg pain, caused by compression of the sciatic nerve or sciatic nerve root (the longest and widest nerve in the body, extending from the lower back, through the buttock, and into the thigh and hip)

Shin splints

Painful shin condition often caused by running (also known as anterior or medial tibial stress syndrome)

Bursitis, tendonitis, rotator cuff syndromes, frozen shoulder, and more

Sports injuries

Running injury, cycling injury, golfing injury, tennis injury, swimming injury, soccer injury, basketball injury, football injury, baseball injury, and more

Swimmer’s shoulder

Weak shoulder or scapular muscles caused by inflamed or irritated rotator cuff tendons (swimmer’s shoulder is a rotator cuff syndrome and is similar to what occurs in baseball with thrower’s shoulder)

Tendinitis

Inflammation of the tendons (connects muscle to bone), common types being Achilles tendinitis or tennis elbow

Tennis elbow

Inflammation of the elbow tendons brought on by repetitive motions of the wrist or forearm; causes worsening outer elbow pain and a weak grasp (similar to golfer’s elbow — which involves the inner elbow instead)

Thoracic outlet syndrome

A combination of shoulder pain, neck pain, numb or tingling fingers, and a weak grasp; commonly caused by poor posture resulting in tight pectoral or neck muscles
