While many people think of arthritis as a
condition that only affects older people, some
forms of arthritis affect children still in
diapers, while thousands of people are stricken
in the prime of their lives. Arthritis actually
consists of more than 100 different conditions.
These can range from tendonitis or bursitis to
crippling conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.
There are more 100 joints connecting the body's
206 bones. Between the bones is a joint cavity,
which gives the bones room to move. The joint
space between two bones is enclosed by a capsule
that's flexible, yet strong enough to protect
the joint against dislocation. The inner lining
of this capsule, the synovium, produces a thick
fluid that lubricates and nourishes the joint.
In many forms of arthritis, the synovium becomes
inflamed and thickened, producing extra fluid
which contains inflammatory cells. The inflamed
synovium and fluid can damage the cartilage and
Chiropractic has long given arthritis pain relief. As arthritis
progresses, pain and loss of mobility tend to
Chiropractic works against
arthritis to improve mobility and decrease
pain. Arthritis treatment helps to increase the
range of motion in the affected joint and allows
for more natural movement. The more the joint
is allowed to move, the more healing of the
joint is promoted.
If you or your loved ones are suffering from arthritis or any other
type of joint pain, we can help. Our treatments
can provide immediate relief without the use of
drugs or surgery. Please contact our office

If you or your loved ones are
injured in an automobile accident, regardless of
who is at fault, you automatically have coverage
to get your injuries treated by a medical
professional of your choosing.
While some people think their
injuries are not that severe after automobile
accidents, injury may not become apparent until
months or even years after the incident.
Chiropractors are trained to identify injuries
that may not show any immediate symptoms. Even
if you are just sore, you should get checked out
immediately because you may experience serious
health problems many months down the road.
Remember, nothing is more important than your
health, especially when you start to lose it.
You need a doctor who
specializes in the treatment for whiplash and
other auto accident injuries. Usually hospitals
and MDs will check vital signs, make sure there
are no life-threatening conditions and release
the patient with pain relief medication. Pills
do not correct the damage to soft tissues and
other systems that can lead to future pain.
There are special chiropractic treatments for
such conditions. If you are still having
problems, you should see a chiropractor.
Possible Symptoms After Auto Accidents:
- Neck pain and/or stiffness
- Muscle stiffness
- Lower back pain and/or stiffness
- Numbness and tingling
- Pain between the shoulder blades
- Shoulder pain
- Knee Pain
- Pain in the arms or legs,
feet and hands
- Pain in the jaw or face
- Trouble sleeping
- Ringing in the ears
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty swallowing

from any of these symptoms, please contact

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve,
which runs from the forearm into the hand,
becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The
carpal tunnel - a narrow, rigid passageway of
ligament and bones at the base of the hand
houses the median nerve and tendons. Sometimes,
thickening from irritated tendons or other
swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the
median nerve to be compressed. The result may be
pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and
wrist, radiating up the arm. Although painful
sensations may indicate other conditions, carpal
tunnel syndrome is the most common and widely
known of the entrapment neuropathies in which
the body's peripheral nerves are compressed or
Symptoms usually start gradually, with frequent
burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the
palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the
thumb and the index and middle fingers. Some
carpal tunnel sufferers say their fingers feel
useless and swollen, even though little or no
swelling is apparent. The symptoms often first
appear in one or both hands during the night,
since many people sleep with flexed wrists. A
person with carpal tunnel syndrome may wake up
feeling the need to "shake out" the hand or
wrist. As symptoms worsen, people might feel
tingling during the day.
Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to
form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform
other manual tasks. In chronic and/or untreated
cases, the muscles at the base of the thumb may
waste away. Some people are unable to tell
between hot and cold by touch.
Carpal tunnel treatment should be as
conservative and as noninvasive as possible.
For many people suffering from carpal tunnel,
pain relief has been achieved without the use of
drugs or surgery. Surgery has mixed outcomes
and should be viewed only as a last resort after
all conservative methods have failed.
Chiropractors treat many patients suffering from
carpal tunnel syndrome with great success. If
you suffer from carpal tunnel or a similar
condition, we can help. Please contact our
office to schedule an appointment
Fibromyalgia is a widespread musculoskeletal
pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is
still unknown. Fibromyalgia means pain in the
muscles, ligaments, and tendons – the soft
fibrous tissues in the body.
Most patients with Fibromyalgia say that they
ache all over. Their muscles may feel like they
have been pulled or overworked. Sometimes the
muscles twitch and at other times they burn.
More women than men are afflicted with
Fibromyalgia, and it shows up in people of all
ages. Fibromyalgia sufferers often describe
their aches and pains as being similar to how
they feel when they have an extreme case of the
flu. Every muscle in their body hurt and they
felt completely exhausted.
Chiropractic care has proven to be an excellent
fibromyalgia treatment. Fibromyalgia sufferers
find that alignments of the spine significantly
reduce pain all over their bodies. If you suffer
from any of these symptoms, don’t wait any
longer. We can help you back to health and
decrease your level of pain with as little as
just one adjustment. Contact our office today to
schedule an appointment.
Many people consider headaches to be a pretty
minor condition that doesn’t necessarily need
the attention of a healthcare professional. Most
people are inclined to take some sort of pain
killer and call it a day. What they don’t
understand is that, while the pain killer may
take care of the pain, it does nothing to
address the actual cause of the headaches.
Headaches can be an indication of other more
serious health problems and should not be taken
Chiropractors have been
extremely successful in detecting and treating
the cause of headache pain for patients. By
concentrating on the cause of the headaches,
chiropractic treatment is a much more effective
and healthy alternative to drug treatments.
Chiropractic care has proven to be at least as
effective if not more effective as pain killers
in the treatment of chronic headaches.
Living with headaches can
seriously diminish your quality of life and may
be an indication of larger health problems.
Headaches can be treated very effectively
through chiropractic care. If you or someone you
know suffers from persistent headaches, please

Low Back Pain
Lower back pain treatment is probably one of
the most common reasons that people seek out
chiropractic care. There are a vast number of
things that can cause lower back pain. In some
cases, pain may start in another part of the
body but the nervous system actually reveals the
pain in your back.
There is almost no person who is
immune from having some sort of lower back pain
at some point in their life. Most often we see
people who can trace their lower back pain to
auto or work injuries, poor lifting habits, poor
conditioning, poor ergonomics or poor posture.
In some cases, a onetime injury to the lower
back may not lead to long term damage and can be
cleared up with just a few treatments. It is the
long term behaviors and unattended injuries that
tend to require more attention and possibly
longer treatment regimens.
Norris Chiropractic Health and Wellness
Center has successfully treated hundreds of
lower back pain cases. We take the time to
understand the source of your lower back pain
and treat the cause, not the symptom. If you're
suffering from lower back pain, find out how you
can benefit from chiropractic care. Our natural,
drug free treatments provide effective lower
back pain relief and also improve general health
throughout the body. Please contact our office

Neck pain comes in many different forms.
Sometimes it can be minor enough that it is
barely noticeable. You think that you might have
just “slept wrong” on it. Other times the pain
is so bad that it is completely debilitating and
you feel you can hardly move.
In some cases, mild neck pain will take care of
itself. For example, if you are in the habit of
holding the phone against your shoulder with
your head, when you finish a conversation, you
will probably have pain in your neck.
Eventually, the pain will go away if you don’t
do it continually throughout the day. Persistent
neckpain, on the other hand, merits a closer
look as it could be an indication of a larger
problem. Tissue damage from an old injury,
whiplash and even disease can start in the form
of persistent low-grade neck pain.
Chiropractors are specially trained to
understand the anatomy of the neck, how it
works, what upsets it and how to get it back to
normal in the most expedient and noninvasive way
possible. Chiropractic care is the most
effective treatment for neck pain available
today. Chiropractors get to the cause of the
problem and fix it naturally without the use of
drugs or surgery.
With the vast array of conditions that can lead
to neck pain, it is imperative that the exact
cause of the problem be identified in order for
us to provide the correct treatment for you. We
offer all of the most recent technology and
treatment techniques in order to get you back to
health and living a pain free life. Please

The importance of chiropractic
care for athletes has grown exponentially in
recent years. More and more, athletic
departments and sports organizations have
realized the benefit of chiropractic care for
their athletes’ injuries.
Chiropractic care is an
excellent addition to any sports care treatment
program. Using spinal and extremity adjustments,
physical therapy, exercise programs and dietary
and nutritional counseling; athletes can
experience increased performance and reduced
risk of injury. Chiropractic care can help to
improve range of motion, flexibility, balance,
coordination, joint proprioception, body
symmetry and agility which are all critical to
peak athletic performance.
Chiropractic care is not only
exceptional in the treatment of acute and
chronic injuries but is equally successful in
preventing future injuries when regular care is
received. Chiropractic care concentrates on the
cause of the injury rather than only the
symptoms. Pain relief by itself is insufficient
with regard to managing sports injuries. Not
only do chiropractic treatments help the athlete
to recover from injuries much more quickly than
other methods of care, they also help to
minimize the risk of future injuries. Not only
do we treat all types of sports injuries, we can
also help you to minimize the risk of getting
one. If you or a loved one suffer from any kind
of sports related injury, please schedule an
Subluxations are probably the most common
conditions treated by Chiropractors.
Subluxations happen when vertebrae get out
of alignment which can lead to a number of
different health problems if left untreated.
The vertebrae protect your spinal chord
which is the main transmitter of messages
from your brain to the rest of your body.
Subluxations can disrupt the flow of those
messages by obstructing the nerves’ ability
to effectively transmit messages. When the
brain is not permitted to communicate
effectively with the rest of the body, it
can lead to less than optimal organ function
which, in turn, can lead to an overall less
Subluxations can be caused by a number of
different things that you do on a regular
basis and may not even be aware that they
are harmful to your body. Poor posture or
ergonomics, poor diet and drug or alcohol
use can all contribute to less than optimal
spinal health. Subluxations can also be
caused by physical injury including auto,
work or sports related injuries.
Symptoms of subluxations come in many
different forms including, neck or back
pain, headaches, back spasms, joint pain,
numbness in the arms or legs, fatigue or a
general feeling of poor health. Even if you
are not suffering from any of these
symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean that
you wouldn’t benefit from a chiropractic
consultation. Many patients we see describe
an immediate sense of “feeling better” when
they didn’t think there was anything wrong
with them to begin with.
If you have any of these symptoms, or even
if you don’t, we would encourage you to come
in and see us. Please contact our office
today for more information.
The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) connect
your lower jaw to your skull. There are two
matching joints, one on each side of your head,
located just in front of your ears. The
abbreviation "TMJ" literally refers to the joint
but is often used to refer to any disorders or
symptoms of this region. Such problems include
popping sounds in the jaw, inability to fully
open the mouth, jaw pain, headaches, earaches,
toothaches, and various other types of facial
symptoms are caused by the effects of physical
and emotional stress on the structures around
the joint. These structures include the muscles
of the jaw, face, and neck; the teeth; the
cartilage disc at the joint; and nearby
ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves.
daily stress can lead you to clench and grind
your teeth, both during the day and at night
while you sleep. Clenching means you tightly
clamp your top and bottom teeth together,
especially the back teeth. The stressful force
of clenching causes pressure on the muscles,
tissues, and other structures around your jaw.
Poor posture can
also be an important factor. Holding the head
forward while looking at a computer all day
strains the muscles of the face and neck.
that might aggravate TMJ symptoms are inability
to relax, poor diet, and lack of sleep. All of
these stresses can result in contracted muscles
and pinched nerves in your jaw, head, and neck;
also known as “trigger points.” Trigger points
can refer pain to other areas, causing a
headache, earache, or toothache. Other possible
causes of TMJ-related symptoms include
arthritis, fractures, dislocations, and
structural problems present since birth. Some
symptoms of TMJ Disorder include headache,
earache or facial pain.
If you or anyone
you know suffers from TMJ or any type of facial
or neck pain, we can likely relieve your
symptoms naturally, without the use of drugs or
surgery. Please contact our office today for
