Conditions Treated

Wexford Chiropractic Centre helps to relieve pain and discomfort from the following issues:

Back Pain

Causes of low back pain can vary from a bulging disc putting pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots to irritated facet joints which prevent normal gliding. One of the most common causes is the vertebral subluxation which irritate nerves. The chiropractic approach is to help restore a more normal motion and position of spinal bones which can be causing nerve irritation. Find out if yours is a chiropractic case and enjoy the positive results that millions of patients have discovered without the use of drugs or surgery.

Neck Pain

It is amazing remembering how long I was in pain and walked with a cane and now I no longer need the cane.”
-B.L.

A complete case history and thorough examination can uncover the underlying cause of neck pain. Medications only cover up the problem and usually don’t get to the underlying cause. Dr. Vactor uses specific gentle low force techniques, structure and function is restored and the nervous system can function optimally. Call Dr. Vactor for a consultation if you are suffering from neck pain.

Headaches

A frequently overlooked cause of headaches is the malposition of spinal bones in the neck and upper back. These bones can affect sensitive nerve and blood vessels which can produce headaches.

Many people find relief and correction with specialized techniques. Dr. Vactor has treated many patients that suffer with chronic headaches. It appears that chiropractors have been right all along. It’s not in your head! In fact, a team of doctors at Syracuse University have established that it is all in your neck with scientific anatomical proof. They have pinpointed changed structures in the neck as the cause of the pain for many chronic headaches. “It’s true and chiropractors have been saying it for years,” Toronto physician Peter Ridthbart concedes.

I used to have a headache every day, along with lower back pain. I suffered from both for more than 10 years. I had been taking medicine for my headaches everyday. Chiropractic care works. Dr. Vactor has changed my life. I feel free from all medicine. But you must commit to wanting to get better and sticking with the treatments. I tell others whenever I can how much Dr. Vactor has helped me and my son Russ. There is hope and help that isn’t in a bottle of medicine!”

Stress Management

Stress can harm the body. The major detrimental effect is a glandular imbalance, which causes an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system. This is the system that primarily controls the organs and glands. Stress that is prolonged ultimately causes harm to the body. Chiropractic care, along with proper nutritional support, can reduce the harmful effects of stress so that you feel good again naturally.

Weight Management

Achieve your desired body weight through balance. Experts are now calling the fattening of America a national epidemic. Despite dramatically reducing the fat in our national diet over the last 15 years, Americans continue to put on weight. In 1991, one third of the population was found to be obese, a 32% increase in 10 years. While intake of saturated fats and cholesterol were decreasing, the weight of America’s young adults increased by 10 pounds.

It has been discovered that a balanced ratio of macronutrients (i.e. proteins, carbohydrates, and fats) in our diets, along with proper calorie intake and exercise are keys to permanent weight loss and optimum health. Find out more by calling (724) 935-1610.

Auto Accidents

Injuries to the neck caused by the sudden movement of the head — backwards, forward or sideways — are referred to as “whiplash.” The resulting instability of the spine and soft tissue can result in headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, pain in the shoulder, arms and hands, along with a reduced ability to turn and bend. These symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months. Specific chiropractic adjustments help to reduce pain and increase spinal function, motion and position of spinal bones. Consult Dr. Vactor before enduring a constant pain or having to depend on addictive pain medications.

I was in a car accident and my neck and back were in very bad shape. I also had head tremors. My neck and back have improved a great deal. I feel so much better. As for the tremors, they have improved a lot also. My nephew and his wife are chiropractors and they made a comment on my tremors. I must have a very good chiropractor, for they hardly notice my tremors anymore.”

Sports Injuries

Many sports related injuries involve the spine. Spinal injuries can reduce strength, slow reflexes, decrease endurance and performance. Chiropractic is becoming increasingly popular with professional and Olympic athletes because they demand results. Chiropractic helps relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve joint movement, so your body can perform at an optimum level. Sports injuries to children are often ignored. Regular checkups will help avoid many problems later in life.

Trigger Point Myotherapy

At times, muscles can become very painful and sore. Properly applied pressure to specific points help to greatly reduce the pain and help increase mobility. It will also help to calm your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. Along with chiropractic adjustments, trigger point myotheraphy can reduce pain so you feel your best and increase your flexibility.

Menopause

It is normal and natural. There is a common misconception that the change begins a time of inevitable and prolonged discomfort and declining quality of life. The reality is that menopause only marks the end of child bearing years. Supporting the body in its ability to manage a smooth hormonal transition and replenishing its energy reserves is important to a continuously active lifestyle.

In harmony with that goal, there are specific vitamin, mineral and special nutritional factors that can be taken. Dr. Vactor can develop a program for you so you can look and feel your best naturally. Dr. Vactor is here to help, so please don’t hesitate to call.

PMS

Women’s hormones are powerful regulators of mind, body and emotions. Many women find this especially true during the premenstrual days. Is your productivity and feeling of well-being affected during your premenstrual days? You are not alone. It is reported up to 1/2 of all American women between 20 and 50 years of age are affected by premenstrual hormone flux. Through proper nutritional support, Dr. Vactor can help you really feel relaxed, peaceful and productive again naturally.
