Our Chiropractor in Columbus Treats a Wide Range of Conditions
Dr. David Johnson has been a chiropractor in Columbus, GA for years and considers it his honor to offer chiropractic care services to his community. He believes that anyone can benefit from consulting with a chiropractor, for both injury prevention pain management.
He treats a number of conditions, including:
Back Pain & Neck Pain
70-80% of us will have back pain at least once, due to things like poor posture, heavy lifting, repetitive movement, or an underlying health condition. In addition to providing manual techniques to relieve your pain, our chiropractor in Columbus can teach you safer ways to move in order to reduce spinal strain.
The sciatic nerves leave your spinal column in your low back. If something pinches one of these nerves (like a vertebral disc or bone spur), problems like leg pain, numbness, and weakness can develop. Adjustments, stretches, and corrective exercises can reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve and relieve your symptoms.
Headaches & Migraines
Migraines and headaches are often brought on by misalignments within the spine, neck, and shoulders. Chiropractic care can correct these misalignments and reduce tension in your head, jaw, and neck.
Herniated & Bulging Discs
The gel-like discs sandwiched between your vertebrae can sometimes bulge out of place or rupture and leak (herniate), impinging nearby nerves, blood vessels, or muscles. Chiropractic care can heal your injured disc and restore its normal alignment.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
You have an anatomical "tunnel" in your wrist through which tendons, nerves, and blood vessels pass. If this tunnel narrows due to inflammation or injury, pain, numbness, and weakness in the hand can develop. This and other arm injuries (including golfer's elbow and tennis elbow) benefit greatly from the natural healing that chiropractic care offers.
This chronic condition causes widespread pain and fatigue. By "resetting" the nervous system through spinal adjustments, a chiropractor can reduce the transmission and strength of pain signals, improve a person's sleep, and promote greater well-being.
Whether you suffer from runner's knee, osteoarthritis, a ligament sprain, or a meniscal tear, our chiropractor can relieve the pain, clicking, buckling, and other debilitating symptoms in your knee.
A tendon connects muscle to bone. If it becomes injured, symptoms including pain, swelling, and instability can develop. Controlling inflammation and reducing the risk of scarring is key for managing the early stages of tendonitis, while looking "upstream" and "downstream" from the injured area can identify underlying factors that may be contributing to the tendonitis in the first place.
Foot Pain & Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis occurs when the thick band (arch) under your foot becomes inflamed. Other causes of heel and foot pain that respond positively to chiropractic care include stress fractures, arthritis, and nerve impingement.
