Chiropractic care and ear infections: not a combination most people are familiar with. But chiropractic care for ear infections is an alternative to antibiotics. Most doctors agree that we are overusing antibiotics. Chiropractic care is a safe natural alternative to this common problem, especially in children. When a spine is adjusted properly, the ear is allowed to drain and the body can build up their own antibodies and recover faster.
Migraines are chronic, severe headaches that last over four hours. Migraine victims can have crippling pain and often, but not always, experience sensitivity to light, known as photophobia, and/or sound, or phonophobia. So what is the best remedy for migraine headaches? While the exact cause of migraine headaches is not yet completely clear, there is scientific evidence that chiropractic adjustment for migraines often results in greatly reduced pain. In fact, a study in 2000 showed that some patients experienced 90 percent relief of their pain after just two months of chiropractic spinal adjustments.

A pinched nerve happens when a nerve becomes compressed, often when a vertebra has rotated out of position, putting pressure on the spinal nerve. Even a small amount of pressure can change the amount of function from the brain to the body causing movement limitation, pain and weakness. A pinched nerve can be caused by sleeping in an awkward position, sitting in one position for some length of time, a sudden twisting of the body or some form of accident.
Simply put, sciatica is an irritation of the sciatic nerve. This nerve is the largest nerve in the body and is partially responsible for movement and sensation from the lower back to the toes. This nerve originates in the very low back, travels through the pelvis, and extends down the back of each leg. Since the sciatic nerve is so long and moves through several major structures, there are many opportunities for it to become squeezed or damaged.
While chiropractic treatment is great for short-term pain, its benefits are not limited to just acute conditions. Chiropractic care from Dr. Haines at Absolute Health Chiropractic is also helpful for long-term problems like scoliosis.
If you are experiencing pain due to frequent participation in athletic activity, we suggest that you don’t push through the pain. It’s paramount that you stop what you are doing and pay attention to your body. Ask yourself a few questions. What am I feeling? Where does it hurt? Is this a repetitive pain that I feel? If it’s been a constant pain, then you may need an alignment. It is important to make an appointment, and once you do, Dr. Haines will perform a thorough evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
As a form of complementary medicine, chiropractic strives to create a state of total wellness for the patient.

This is why Dr. Haines takes a comprehensive approach to his patients’ well-being. Through stress reduction, nutritional counseling and a focus on wellness, Dr. Haines provides total care for an excellent quality of life.

I actually went into Dr. Haines office for a massage, and then decided to get a routine adjustment. I already had a chiropractor in town, but I thought since I was in the office I’d get adjusted. I told him I suffered from vertigo and dizzy spells, he then took an xray and adjusted me. I couldn’t believe it! This is the single best thing that I have ever done for my vertigo!
