Conditions Treated by Our Navarre Chiropractor
A chiropractor is not only a highly trained expert in spinal health, but so much more. Dr. Llaird Likens is proud to be a well-respected chiropractor in Navarre, FL, and would be honored to see you at our chiropractic center. We're here to help you and your loved ones heal from a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions.
Back Pain and Neck Pain
Most people will have back pain or neck pain at least once in their lives and conservative interventions like chiropractic care are considered the first line of treatment for a range of related conditions including disc herniation, disc bulge, degenerative disc disease, spinal muscle strains, spinal stenosis, text neck, and sciatica. Chiropractic adjustments and other interventions help realign spinal anatomy while also decreasing pain.
Chiropractic care is also effective in preventing recurring back pain and neck pain by helping a person resolve underlying postural imbalances and movement patterns that increase spinal strain.
Scoliosis is when the spine deviates from side to side rather than being in a straight column. The are many degrees of variation and complication with this condition. Chiropractic has been a proven resource to improve the function of the spine and decrease the rate of degeneration and complications in those who have scoliosis. Dr. Likens has years of experience in treating and improving scoliosis.
Even a minor fender bender at speeds of less than 10 miles per hour can lead to whiplash and other acute health conditions. When the sudden acceleration/deceleration forces of a car crash strain and damage nerves, joints, muscles, and other tissues in the shoulder, spine, hips, and legs, our chiropractor can help you out ASAP by reducing inflammation, restoring musculoskeletal alignment, and accelerating tissue healing.
Arm and leg conditions treated by our Navarre chiropractor include rotator cuff tears, golfer's elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, runner's knee, shin splints, ankle sprains, and plantar fasciitis. Our team can even manage extremity conditions related to referred pain from the spine, including cervical radiculopathy and lumbar sciatica.
Headaches and Migraines
Headaches caused by poor posture, stress, and neck tension can make you feel like there's a tight band wrapped around your head. Migraines are also headaches, but usually far more severe and can occur with additional issues like nausea and sensitivity to light or sound. Chiropractic care techniques, including adjustments, massage, and acupuncture can reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of both types of headaches.
Our VA chiropractor also uses techniques to heal other chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, and even unresolved mental wellness conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which tend to have a deep body/mind relationship.
