We take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to our patients. Below are examples of the different chiropractic services we offer and conditions we treat in our Lawrenceville and Yardley offices

Chiropractic Care

Back pain is the number-one problem facing the workforce in the United States today. To illustrate just how big a problem low back pain is, consider these facts.

  • Low back pain is the second most common cause of missed work days.                           services3_2_1.jpg
  • Low back pain is the leading cause of disability between the ages of 19 and 45. 
  • Low back pain is the leading impairment in occupational injuries.
  • Eight out of 10 people will have a problem with back pain at some time during their lives.

YOU CAN, IN All PROBABILITY, END YOUR BACK PAIN NOW IF YOU MAKE THE EFFORT! The overwhelming majority of people, whether suffering from chronic or acute back pain, have insufficient strength in the major muscle groups of their backs.

The doctors at Complete Health of Lawrenceville have extensive training and experience in health science, sports injury management, and exercise science. They will be able to assess your individual back condition and offer you a personalized program to end the dysfunction and pain.

Rehabilitation Exercises


When muscles, tendons, or ligaments of the spine are damaged through work injuries, car accidents, overexertion, repetitive motion, or simply weakened by inactivity, your overall health is affected.

services4_2_1.jpg

An important step towards complete rehabilitation is restoring proper spinal function through chiropractic adjustments.

Without some form of rehabilitation, recovery from an injury or a long-standing spinal problem can take longer to achieve. Overlooking the importance of improved range of motion and muscle strengthening can result in a relapse, with your original health problem returning again and again. Chiropractic rehabilitation involves the restoration of proper joint function of the spine or extremities, and the strengthening of supporting muscles and soft tissue. This will usually involve specific spinal adjustments, combined with a program of stretching, resistance training, and exercises to improve muscle tone. Some patients receive a set of simple exercises they can do at home. Other types of injuries will require the use of specialized equipment to isolate and strengthen specific areas of the spine.

Ask your doctor for ways you can speed the healing process and strengthen the supporting soft tissue of your spine through appropriate rehabilitation.

Whiplash Treatment


Whiplash is the common name given to the injury where there is a hyperextention (increased backward motion) and hyperflexion (increased forward motion) of the cervical (neck) spine. More simply put, the head is dramatically thrust forward and backward. Car accidents and falls can cause whiplash injuries.

services1_1.jpgWhen bones of the spine lose their normal position or motion, sensitive nerves and blood vessels to the head can be affected. When spinal nerves and related tissues are stretched or irritated they can produce throbbing headaches. Aspirin and medications may cover up these warning signs, but do not correct the underlying structural cause. Many people find relief and correction with chiropractic care. When the head is suddenly jerked back and forth beyond its normal limits, the muscles and ligaments supporting the spine and head can be overstretched or tom. The soft, pulpy discs between spinal bones can bulge, tear or rupture. Vertebrae can be forced out of their normal position, reducing range of motion. The spinal cord and nerve roots in the neck can get stretched and irritated. The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissues can result in headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulder, arms and hands, reduced ability to turn and bend, and even low back problems. As the body attempts to adapt, symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months later.

Symptoms of whiplash include headaches; visual disturbance; stiffness of the neck; restriction of movement; and shoulder, neck, or arm pain. These symptoms may or may not be felt immediately. It is estimated that most whiplash injuries are not felt for several hours, days, and in some cases even months or years following the accident.

Even if you are not in pain following a whiplash incident, it is important to receive prompt attention to your injury, as the structural balance of your neck and spine is important to your health. We can assist in your recovery by correctly adjusting your neck and/or spine so it has the chance to heal properly. In addition, we can recommend physical therapy, stretching and strengthening exercises, and natural anti-inflammatories to put you back on the road to good health.

Disc Problems


Discs are the cartilage pads that separate, cushion and help connect the vertebrae that make up your spinal column. They serve as shock absorbers between each of the vertebrae and are constantly subjected to the pull of gravity and the torque from everyday movement. Disc problems can be the result of genetics, the normal "wear and tear" of aging, and injury.

services6_1_1.jpg
Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily. This is how many disc problems begin.  Because of the way each disc is attached to the vertebra above and below it, a disc cannot "slip" as commonly thought. However, trauma or injury to the spine can cause discs to bulge, herniate, or worse, rupture. This can be quite painful, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots, interfering with their function. The chiropractic approach to disc problems is to help restore better motion and position to the spinal joint. Besides reducing disc bulging, better spinal function helps reduce inflammation and begin the slow process of healing the surrounding soft tissue.

While results cannot be guaranteed, many patients have avoided surgery or a dependency on pain pills by choosing conservative chiropractic care.

This common back problem is one we see frequently. We effectively treat this malady by realigning the vertebrae and returning the spine to its normal range of motion, thereby reducing the pressure on the discs and spinal joints. We also incorporate physical therapy as well as strengthening exercises for the abdominal and back muscles. Core stabilization is essential for the prevention of subsequent disc problems.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

CTS has become one of the most widespread occupational health problems we face today. It affects millions of people a year, and with our growing reliance on computers there seems to be no end in sight. The syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve just above the wrist. Pressure on this nerve can be caused by an injury or sustained use from common activities like typing, chopping, hammering, or pushing. Symptoms of CTS range from wrist pain, numbness, tingling, burning, weakness or loss of grip strength, and loss of sleep due to discomfort. There are a number of different ways to treat this condition. In most cases, a chiropractic adjustment to the affected area is an extremely effective solution. In some cases, a misalignment in either the back or neck can cause this condition, and chiropractic manipulation of the neck and/or spine can also serve as an effective treatment option. These treatments, along with physical therapy, stretching, and strengthening exercises, can in most cases effectively alleviate and eventually eliminate the symptoms associated with CTS.

Headaches

Headaches are common in our fast-paced, pressure-filled world. There are many causes of headaches, including physical trauma, emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies, or chemical toxins. In addition, if your neck and/or back are out of alignment, this can affect nerves, muscles, and even blood flow to your head. Too often, we turn to over-the-counter medications to relieve our discomfort. Unfortunately, these only mask the underlying sources of pain. After your initial chiropractic examination, we can determine if chiropractic health care is the best alternative for treating your chronic headaches. A combination of chiropractic adjustments and nutritional and lifestyle changes can dramatically reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches. It is important to know that if you've suffered from chronic headaches for years, improvement can take time. But a visit to our offices is a great place to start. Every headache has a cause, and if we are unable to identify the cause, we will refer you to other specialists who may be able to help.

Joint Dysfunction

Joint dysfunction is the condition most often treated at our offices, and we are specially trained to treat joint disorders. Joint or articular problems are caused by osteoarthitis (degenerative joint disease), subluxations, sprains, intervertebral disc problems, and various abnormal changes in the curve of the spine. Joints that are aligned improperly or are impaired will begin to degenerate rapidly if not attended to promptly and properly. Adjustment procedures, physical therapy, and rehabilitation exercises are very effective in treating joint disorders. As with all conditions we treat, we will be happy to refer you to another health-care provider if you are not a candidate for chiropractic.

Neurological Conditions
EMG Service

Neurological conditions such as headaches, neuritis (inflammation of any part of a nerve, other than the nerve root), and radiculitis (inflammation of a nerve root as it exits the spine) are the most commonly treated neurological cases in the chiropractic profession. Radiculitis is a common source of shoulder, arm and hand pain. With neuritis, patients sometimes experience sensations called paresthesias (feelings of tingling, hot spots, cold spots, crawling sensations, stinging, and burning). Loss of equilibrium/vertigo is also a condition sometimes treated by our office. Because neurological problems can be extremely serious and even life-threatening, these situations often call for a referral or co-management with other health-care professionals. 

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the cartilage and bones of joints caused by "wear-and-tear" processes. It is often associated with degenerative changes in the disc and results in friction between adjacent vertebrae. The friction causes a strain as well as a loss of motion in the facets (gliding joints) of the spine. If these joints are exposed to continued trauma such as strenuous exercise, weakened muscles, and the inevitable factors of aging and heredity, the results can be severe low-back and/or leg pain. While chiropractic cannot halt the process of osteoarthritis, we can improve the quality of life while living with the disease. If you're suffering from osteoarthritis, your spine is usually less flexible; therefore, it becomes more vulnerable to injury. Under our care, your treatment may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and stretching and strengthening exercises. We can also recommend natural, drug-free ways to control your pain and discomfort.

Kennedy Spinal Decompression Therapy (KDT)

Constant suffering from back or neck pain isn't something you have to live with.  Now there's a highly effective, proactive and pain-free treatment that can eliminate the pain associated with degenerative joint disease and bulging/herniated discs.  Spinal Decompression Therapy is the leading non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments such as medication and surgical procedures.


Nutritional Supplements

We recommend Metagenics brand supplements.  Please visit our nutritional supplements website for additional information and to register with us!

Orthotics

Complimentary consultations are available for spinal pelvic stabilizers (orthotics). Ask one of our doctors for more information.

Physical Therapy

The goals of physical therapy are to restore or achieve optimal movement and function and to relieve pain. Our physical therapist, Bryan Haig, MSPT, is specially trained to improve movement and function, relieve pain, and expand your movement potential. Through evaluation and individualized treatment programs, Bryan can help both treat existing problems and provide preventive health care for people with a variety of needs.



Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is available at both of our offices.  All of our therapists are either nationally or state certified and each has a minimum of five years of experience.  The doctors use massage therapy to warm up and stretch the muscles before an adjustment.  Your massage may include deep muscle work, trigger point therapy, stretching, and other modalities as needed.  Our therapists adapt their massage work to your particular injury/need.  We also offer pre-natal massage.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio® Taping is an innovative approach to treating nerves, muscles and organs. This method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. In some cases, patients are able to participate in his/her normal physical activities while they heal. The tape can be worn for a few days and will stay in place after a workout or a shower. You have probably seen this tape on professional and Olympic athletes.
