Conditions Treated at Our Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, DE
Here at our Diamon State Chiropractic in Newark, DE we specialize in the treatment of a host of conditions associated with back and neck pain. Some of our most common treatment modalities include spinal decompression treatments to relieve pain. One of the most common treatments offered in our practice is spinal manipulation. We treat patients who have been injured in automobile accidents, those who have been injured on the job, and also people who have been injured in and around their homes.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries we see in our practice. Generally, those persons who have been in an automobile accident complain about neck pain and stiffness. This type of injury is caused by the neck being projected forward and then abruptly being pulled back due to the force of impact. Whiplash is not something that occurs at the time of an accident. Often times it takes about 24 hours or longer for symptoms to manifest. Some of the other symptoms associated with whiplash include shoulder pain, dizziness, numbness, and headaches. People who suffer from whiplash also have trouble sleeping, which causes them to become fatigued and can cause irritability. One of the ways we treat whiplash is through spinal adjustments. We also use ultrasound therapy, as well as ice and heat packs to help alleviate the pain along with electronic muscle treatments.
The origin of sciatica is often associated with spinal stenosis, bone spurs, herniated disc, and pregnancy. The most common symptom associated with sciatica is numbness and tingling which start in the lumbar region of the back and then radiates into the legs. Sometimes people who experience sciatica complain that they have tingling and numbness in their toes as well. Our chiropractor treats sciatica using ultrasound, TENS unit application, spinal manipulation, and ice cold therapy.
Spinal stenosis can be quite painful and it occurs due to the space around your spine narrowing. When this happens pressure is placed on the nerves of the spine. The condition is pervasive in the neck and lower back region. Some people never experience any symptoms related to spinal stenosis however, there are others who experience muscle weakness, muscle pain, tingling, and numbness. If not treated, the symptoms related to spinal stenosis will continue to get worse with time. The origin of spinal stenosis is a byproduct of osteoarthritis. Our chiropractor treats spinal stenosis with adjustments, hot and cold therapies and some patients are referred to a massage therapist for treatment.
