Following an automobile accident, whiplash is the most common injury. After being struck by another object from the rear or the side, the neck will thrash back and forth quickly and violently. When this occurs, the muscles in the neck will become hyperextended and may be strained or torn. This kind of soft tissue injury will lead to stiffness and soreness in the neck and/or upper back. The quick snapping movements that occur during whiplash will also likely lead to structural damage. These misalignments can also create associated herniate or bulging discs. In severe case, a disc may rupture or cause nerve damage.
Chiropractic is proven to help both soft tissue and structural injuries caused by whiplash. There are specific, low force manual adjustments that we perform at Basler Chiropractic Center in Providence for those that suffer from whiplash and other injuries due to a car accident. It’s very important to make sure that pressure is removed off the nerves and motion is restored. Call us today to begin your healing and put this accident behind you.
Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage in the joints gets wore down. The likelihood of developing osteoarthritis increases if you have suffered an injury in joints like the hips, knees, wrist, hands, ankles, feet, neck or back. This condition can be very painful and make daily life a struggle. It also can have an effect on the rest of your body. This happens due to compensation. If a person has pain in one knee, then they are going to put extra weight on the opposite knee. This not only effects the knee you are putting more weight on but it also effects your ankles, feet, hips, pelvis and low back. Pain killers can provide relief until it wears off and it is time to take another pill. Chiropractic can help the pain by taking pressure off nerves and joints due to compensation. Chiropractic adjustments also help restore proper movement in joints in the affected and unaffected areas. This is important because at Basler Chiropractic Center we are concerned with treating your entire body.
The condition joint dysfunction can be described as joints that become stiff and full movement is restricted. There are many difference causes of this condition including, but not limited to, muscle imbalance, injury, or poor posture. Compensation is a common cause of addition pain, just like with arthritis. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is the most commonly treated joint dysfunction. The sacroiliac joint is where the sacrum (tailbone) joins with the pelvis. The joint dysfunction can create pain in the low back and limit movement.
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is often misdiagnosed for sciatica or a herniated disc. Call Basler Chiropractic Center today to be properly diagnosed. At Basler Chiropractic Center we will perform a thorough exam and specific adjustments to restore movement and give you relief.
Neck and Back Pain
It is common to experience neck or back discomfort at some point in the day. Poor posture, a life of micro traumas, toxins and much more will create subluxations within the spinal. These subluxations will lead to pain because of the compressed nerves and discs. If these aches and pains are left untreated, muscle spasms and increasing pain may occur. If left untreated for a long enough period of time, nerves can eventually die which may lead to more serious consequences. At Basler Chiropractic Center, we are here to rid your body of these subluxations and relieve you pain.
Headaches are considered to be a normal way of life for people today in Providence. What people don’t know is that more than three headaches a year is not normal. There are many factors that can lead to headaches, such as loud noises, stress or hunger, but it may not be the underlying cause. The most common cause behind headaches is muscular tension in the neck and shoulders. These tight muscles can cause stress on the surrounding vertebrae which can lead to pain and headaches. Studies have found that 85% of all headaches can be traced back to the neck. A headache that originates from the neck is known as a cervicogenic headache. A person that experiences cervicogenic headaches is likely to feel throbbing, aching pain at the base of the head. The pain usually radiates into the forehead and temples with pain behind the eyes. A combination of massage and chiropractic adjustments can relieve the muscular tightness and restore structure to the neck. Regular chiropractic care can relieve and prevent headaches.

One of the most common conditions suffered by middle age to elderly citizens in Providence is known as sciatica. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs through the sacrum (tailbone) and down the back of the legs. Sciatica can be caused by a misalignment or due to a muscular problem. If a person has a disc issue or experiences muscles spasms in the low back, their pain may be worse due to the increased pressure. Many people believe that their hip(s) may be the cause of this pain because of where the pain originates. The pain in the glute region is the sacroiliac joint, where the sacrum meets the pelvis. Those suffering from sciatica experience shooting, sharp, burning pains down the back of their leg. It is not very common to experience this pain in both legs simultaneously. At Basler Chiropractic Center, we will properly treat this problem without surgery. We will also resolve the issue rather than mask the pain with medication.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This combination of physical stress creates stress along with wear and tear. All nerves start in the spine, including the nerves that run into your fingertips. Chiropractic adjustments and proper posture can help relieve the stress and pressure on your nerves and joints.
