Aches and pains

The chiropractic doctor takes action in every aspect of the neuromusculoskeletal system to treat and relieve a wide range of health related issues.

Chiropractors work in collaboration with medical doctors, medical specialists, physiotherapists, massage therapists, ergotherapists, osteopaths and kinesiologists. Sometimes people need a variety of approaches to heal and return to normal activities again.

The vertebral subluxation complex, a fundamental concept in chiropractic, indicates that spinal misalignment and spinal joint dysfunction can cause a variety of ill effects on the body.

If the spinal column’s vertebrae and joints suffer a trauma, they can become a source of interference in the transmission of the nerve impulse which runs through the nerves and sends messages to and from the brain. A breach in the path taken by the nerve impulse will disturb the organism and consequently lead to various health problems.

Chiropractic is particularly effective when it comes to relieving pain caused by joint or muscular problems. Using chiropractic manoeuvres and adjustments to correct vertebral subluxations, chiropractors contribute in restoring vertebrae mobility which can be the reason for nerve interferences and muscular pain.

Awesome doctor! Had headaches before I started, and now no more! Very friendly and helpful! My husband is also benefiting from his practice. Super recommend!     Alice X.

I used to have chronic back and neck pains. I was unable to sleep properly nor stand or sit for more than 20 minutes. I was using 8 pain killers per day on a regular basis. Now after the chiropractic adjustments by Dr Butz I can sleep a full night, can stand or sit for extended periods of time and no longer need painkillers. Even my posture is better and I feel like I grew an inch!     Ken, 55 

Since her second chiropractic adjustment with Dr. Butz, my daughter Faith's concentration level improved so much and she also goes to the bathroom almost every day. Her teacher at school has also seen a great improvement in her work.    Shari C.

In short, this chiropractor truly works for you. He implies a public health approach that seems to holistically fix an issue at the root. He educates his patients. I find this to be imperative in patient relation. Involving your patients in the treatment is rarely found, and Dr. Butz goes out of his way to help you.     Lucas D.

I was having pain in my neck and shoulders. I also had pain, numbness and tingling in my arms. After 5 months of physio, nothing's changed. In December 2013, I turned to chiropractic. Now, I have no more numbness and tingling in my arms and almost no more pain in my neck in shoulders. I would recommend chiropractic to everyone because it works!     Kathy, 33
