Frequently Asked Questions
Of all the conditions we handle in our office, the following are by far the most common. Luckily, we specialize in treating such conditions with the type of chiropractic care that provides much sought-after relief to our patients. Below you will find some information on the most treated conditions:
How many adults suffer with chronic pain?
It is estimated that chronic pain affects 47 percent of U.S. adults. A study from Gallup-Healthway's shows that 31 percent of U.S. adults have some sort of painful neck or back condition. If you suffer from any of the conditions listed below, or any other type of chronic pain, there is no need to suffer any longer in silence. Let us treat the source of your pain conveniently in our office.
Can adjustments help neck pain?
Many of our everyday activities can contribute to neck pain. Anything from poor posture to the slightest injury or stress can cause that all too familiar ache at the top of your spine or base of your head. Often, simple adjustments to your neck's vertebrae can help ease or even eliminate this irritating pain in your neck.
What can I do for lower back pain?
The part of our body that allows us to have such capacity for mobility is also the part that is most susceptible to injury and pain. Treatment can seem elusive as recurrence is common. A chiropractic treatment involves simply readjusting the lower lumbar vertebrae and pelvis, which helps give you back your normal position of your bones and joints.
What causes my headaches?
Almost everyone has experienced a headache at some point. But severe tension or sinus headaches, or chronic migraines are not only excruciating, they can rob you of your quality of life. Depending on the type of headache the patient has, the chiropractic approach is to manipulate the upper two cervical vertebrae, as well as make other pinpointed adjustments to the spine. We also employ Trigger Point Therapy to work on the knotted muscles (trigger points) that may affect your headaches.
Can you manipulate a whiplash injury?
Whiplash is injury to the neck, caused by an abrupt jerking motion of the head. In most cases, injuries are too soft tissues such as disks and ligaments. Our treatment utilizes a combination of spinal manipulation and soft tissue rehabilitation.
What is sciatica?
Sciatica is a common type of pain affecting the large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. It usually affects only one side of the lower body, but the pain can range from a mere irritation to severely debilitating.
To have all your questions answered, call Beach Boulevard Chiropractic Massage Rehab for a consultation.
For the last 4 months, I've been seeing Dr. Winkler for an injury on my knee that I sustained over 3 years ago. I was unable to climb stairs, which is a real problem for me since my office is on the second floor. I'd hold onto the stair rails and pull myself up. After just 4 months of rehab with Dr. Winkler, I have no problem with the stairs! The entire office is professional, friendly and has a relaxed atmosphere that will take away any concerns! His staff, Samantha in particular, is gracious and concerned about all the patients who come through the door! I highly recommend Beach Boulevard Chiropractic!!
