Kneecap Troubles

If the kneecap is misaligned, there is abnormal wear-&-tear underneath it, which can contribute to arthritis of the knee. It's easy to correct with ACTIVATOR Chiropractic, and special exercises help the correction to hold.

Neck Pain and Tension

Neck pain and tension can be a difficult cycle to break. My Chiropractic approach is to adjust misalignments, release fixations, and share home care advice: ergonomics, posture (including sleep), etc., tools patients can use on their own to get relief.

Headaches may be related to problems in the neck or in the cranial bones. Gentle, precise corrections of misalignments or fixations in the neck or occiput often bring relief. The cranial rhythms should also be checked.

Keys to Healthy Sitting

Keys to healthy sitting include:
---both feet flat on the floor,
---knees slightly lower than the level of the hips,
---back resting comfortably against your chair,
---keep your head in line with center of gravity of your body 
      (avoid head-forward postures).
One of the most important features of whatever chair you use is that you can change the height of the seat.

Unless your feet are addressed, a treatment plan for your pelvic or low back pain may not be successful.
