How We Can Help
At Heiser Chiropractic, you can always rest assured that the techniques we use are meant for long lasting relief. Unlike prescription pain medications and other conventional treatments, our techniques are focused on treating your pain and symptoms directly at their source, rather than masking them temporarily. We will educate you about the cause of disease as well as the treatment necessary to restore health through proper spinal function. We believe educated patients provide a strong foundation for a successful doctor/patient relationship. The atmosphere is then optimum for your healing to occur. Ultimately, our goal is to help you find relief that is long lasting and to improve your total health and wellness so you don’t have to worry about symptoms returning in the future.
Back Pain – Back pain may be related to an acute injury, degenerative changes in the spinal column, or a chronic misalignment that stresses the major muscle groups. Dr. Heiser’s gentle chiropractic adjustments can address the underlying cause of that pain.
Neck Pain – Neck pain is caused by whiplash (a common, if agonizing, auto accident injury) as well as bulging or herniated cervical discs, joint subluxation, a thickening of the spinal canal called cervical spinal stenosis, an off-balance head that places undue strain on the neck, or even postural problems such as “text neck.” The gentle, precise techniques used by Dr. Heiser can correct cervical spinal issues safely and non-invasively, while acupuncture helps relieve soft tissue pain.
Chronic Pain Conditions – Fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions can be managed without the need for pain medications. Chiropractic adjustments help by correcting the joint position, allowing for a greater pain-free range of motion.
Sciatica and Cervical Radiculopathy – Sciatica occurs when herniated discs or other lumbar problems pinch the sciatic nerve, causing back pain as well as leg tingling, weakness, numbness, and pain. Cervical radiculopathy is similar in nature, only it involves the cervical spine and effects the arms and hands. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain due to pinched nerves.
Systemic Disorders – Your various organ systems receive their instructions from the brain, via the nervous system, which means that nerve dysfunction can produce system disorders. Dr. Heiser can reduce nerve impingement so your body can operate normally. By improving communication between the brain and the body, chiropractic adjustment and acupuncture can even help control hypertension.
Headaches and Migraines – Chiropractic adjustments to the cervical spine can relieve imbalance-related muscle tension that triggers headaches. Chiropractic treatment has also been shown to reduce migraine frequency and severity in medical studies.
Pediatric Complaints – Children with spinal alignments may be more prone to common childhood ailments because their nervous systems aren’t functioning as efficiently as they should be. Dr. Heiser’s gentle technique allows for safe, painless adjustments that can reduce your child’s struggles with earaches, allergies, asthma, colic, bedwetting and other pediatric complaints.
