Hip Pain  Mission Viejo, CA

Hip Pain

Here at Teitelbaum Chiropractic, we specialize in helping others find out what is causing their hip pain and correcting it so that they feel like themselves again, or even better than before! Our hips are such an important part of our body. They ensure that we stand up straight, control the entire bottom half of us, and allow us to walk, run, kick, and play.

In many cases, hip pain is simply caused by osteoarthritis, though it can also be a result of an injury.

If you come into our office, our friendly and qualified staff will assist you in relieving your pain by getting to the root of the issue. Instead of covering up the problem, we want to ensure that the pain goes away and stays away.

We will put together a treatment plan to make sure that this happens. Depending on the severity of your condition, we may treat you by adjusting your hips though we also do exercise therapy, stretching, massage, and other solutions.

In a recent study, 60% of chiropractic patients had their symptoms improve so much that they no longer required surgery. That is our goal. If you do have osteoporosis, you will still benefit from chiropractic care to relieve your hip pain.

The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds.

tmj  Mission Viejo, CA

TMJ/Jaw issues

TMJ is an abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint which connects the mandibular, or your lower jaw, to the temporal bones of the skull. The TMJ is one of the more unique joints within your body as it allows you to move your jaw forward, backward, and side to side so that you can chew, talk, sing, yawn, and more. This joint can be found just in front of your ears on both sides of your head.

Any problem with the muscles, ligaments, discs, bones, or the joint itself are known as temporomandibular disorders or TMD and refers to the actual disorder, where the jaw joint is misaligned and causing problems such as pain, inflammation, and inability to move or operate the jaw. However, these problems or conditions are often incorrectly called by the joint name of TMJ instead.

Whiplash  Mission Viejo, CA

Whiplash

According to the American Chiropractic Association, one of the most common causes of neck pain is whiplash resulting from a car accident. A sudden forced movement of the head or neck in any direction and the resulting “rebound” in the opposite direction is known as whiplash. The sudden “whipping” motion injures the surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck and head. Muscles react by tightening and contracting, creating muscle fatigue, which can result in pain and stiffness. Severe whiplash can also be associated with injury to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots.

Pregnancy Support

Here at Teitelbaum Chiropractic, we specialize in both prenatal and postnatal care. We are proud to serve patients in Mission Viejo, CA and the surrounding communities.

Many people assume that pregnant women should not see a chiropractor. The truth is actually the opposite. Chiropractors work with the body’s natural ability to adapt and function the way that is was designed to, which is vital for the normal physiological function of both the mother and the baby during pregnancy and birth.

During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes, including developmental and hormonal changes. Many of your ligaments may shift, and any women experience lower back pain as a result. Our job is to assist you with this and make your pregnancy experience enjoyable and pain free.

Chiropractic care can also reduce restrictions and interferences which can then increase the chance of getting pregnant. If you are trying to get pregnant, chiropractic care is a wonderful solution.

Our entire staff will always go above and beyond each and every time that we see you. We create a stress-free environment so you can enjoy coming in. We are always available to answer any of your questions. We also always create a safe environment for you and your baby.

If you have any questions regarding prenatal and postnatal care, contact us today at (949) 215-4500.
