Our practice has served people of all ages and many health conditions secondary to using NUCCA and functional neurology. These include:

Auto-Accident Care & Whiplash

STATE OF THE ART CARE FOR WHIPLASH AND AUTO-INJURIES

Auto-accidents are one of the most common ways that people injure their spine. One of the big problems with accident injuries is that you may not feel pain immediately after the accident, and it can prevent you from getting appropriate care.

Research has shown that whiplash associated pain may present itself weeks or months after an accident has occurred. It always kills me to see someone who seems like they developed whiplash symptoms out of nowhere only to find that they had been in a car accident 2 months earlier. Sometimes this develops into a chronic pain problem which can cost thousands of dollars over the course of someone’s lifetime.

 

Did You Know?

A recent Florida law passed makes it so that a patient has just 14 days after the accident to be evaluated by a doctor in order to have any treatment covered by Personal Injury Protection. This is built in regardless of whether you are at fault or not.

That’s one of the reasons we advise all of our patients and anyone involved in a car accident to get their spine checked for soft tissue injuries to the spine even in the absence of pain.

Migraines and other headache disorders

Natural Solutions for Chronic or Daily Migraines

Headache disorders are the most common neurological disorders in the world. While most people will experience a bad headahce at some point in their life, there are millions of people that experience a debilitating headache disorder on a regular basis.

Fortunately, there are effective and drug-free methods that can significantly reduce headache frequency for even the most challenging headache patients.

Treatments we have found effective for chronic headaches and migraines include:

  • Upper cervical chiropractic using NUCCA technique

  • Non-invasive trigeminal nerve stimulation

  • Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (Gammacore)

  • Metabolic testing and treatment

Dizziness

NATURAL SOLUTIONS FOR VERTIGO AND BALANCE DISORDERS

Very few thing can affect someone’s quality of life more than balance disorders. Having vertigo or a loss of balance can make you feel woozy, nauseated, fatigued, and sick. While these effects can be bad enough, perhaps the worst problem associated with balance disorders is the simple fear and apprehension with doing things that should be normal life activities.

Common Vestibular Disorders

There are many different disorders that can make you feel dizzy or off balance. Here are some of the most common causes:

  • Concussion and whiplash

  • Meniere’s disease

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

  • Cervicogenic vertigo

  • Migraine associated vertigo

While there are medications that can help with nausea and vomiting, medications are usually not effective in restoring balance. Most people with balance disorders may go through a regiment of physical therapy called vestibular rehabilitation.

Gentle, Effective Care for Jaw Pain and TMJ Disorder

Natural Solutions for TMJ Pain

TMJ or TMD stands for temporomandibular joint(TMJ) dysfunction(TMD). It  is a blanket term to describe pain or popping of the jaw and it’s associated structures. It is frequently associated with headaches, migraines, ear pain, and neck pain. In some cases, the pain become so severe that it can feel stabbing or electric as in the case with Trigeminal Neuralgia.

When evaluating TMJ pain, it’s important to identify all possible sources including:

  • Abnormal motion of the jaw

  • TMJ disc irritation

  • Dental abnormalities

  • Abnormal jaw muscle tone

Common treatments for TMJ pain include anti-inflammitory medications for pain control, Neurontin for reducing nerve activity, manual manipulation of the jaw, maxilofacial surgery,  and dental correction through braces and mouth guards.

Gentle Innovative Procedure Gets Results Fast

Seeing a TMJD specialist can be expensive and time consuming. Treatments for TMJ pain is not covered by most insurance and can lead to out of pocket costs exceeding $5,000 or more!

Before spending several thousand dollars on a mouth reconstruction, you may be able to see if you TMJ case is a candidate for the NUCCA procedure. Dr. Chung and his team have been able to get noticeable changes in TMJ/jaw pain within weeks with a success rate of over 85%!

At Keystone Chiropractic, our goal is to establish a structural correction to the upper cervical spine. The upper cervical spine is intimately connected to key structures help the jaw function.

When the atlas displacement complex is present, it can affect the nervous system at a critical area called the Trigeminal Nucleus. These nerves are responsible for the muscles that move the jaw and the nerves that sense pain in the head and neck.

By correcting the atlas shift, the nerves can function normally again and regain normal feeling and function in the jaw. It is because of this relationship of the atlas to the jaw that Dr. Chung works closely with experts in the field of Neuromuscular Dentistry in the care of some of the most advanced cases of TMD.

If you or someone you know is struggling with problems from TMD, Keystone may be able to help. 

POST-CONCUSSION SYNDROME CARE

Brain health has become an important conversation with greater awareness of the long term effects that brain injury has on people's lives. Most people will recover from a concussion without any problems. However, roughly 10% of concussed patients will experience lingering symptoms lasting for greater than 1 month. These symptoms include:

  • Dizziness

  • Headache

  • Brain fog

  • Poor concentration

  • Neck pain

Pinched Nerves

Can Herniated Discs be Helped?

Disc herniations are one of the most common ailments to afflict the spine. A disc is a part of the spine that acts as a shock absorber for the spine. Injuries, traumas, overuse, and disease can create situations where the material that makes the disc becomes torn, and the inner, gel-like fluid can push into the spine and pinch the nerves.

When the nerves are pinched, it can create symptoms of intense pain along the spine, or in the extremities. These include things like sciatica, shoulder pain, arm pain, back pain, and neck pain.

Although it is commonly attributed to many different conditions, the biggest problem is that 40% of people can have disc herniations and have NO SYMPTOMS. In essence, many people who have pain from a disc herniation have had the herniation for months and years, but never experienced the pain. Their bodies were ticking time bombs, and then a small movement, a cough, a laugh, or picking up a box sent the pain off in a bad way.

Here’s some good news. Most people think that disc herniations are a life sentence, and that it’s unsafe to be treated by a chiropractor. Nothing could be further from the truth.

At Keystone Chiropractic, we focus on correcting the structural problems that led to the disc breaking down. While many other doctors will focus on removing the pain, we have seen changes in numerous MRIs where the disc can actually reabsorb and heal!

It is important to seek care soon after pinching a nerve to prevent any long-term pressure that that causes chronic pain and permanent nerve damage. If you or someone you know is struggling with problems from a bad disc and pinched nerve, Keystone may be able to help

Secondary Conditions

Common Secondary Conditions – Cause and Types

Once a structural shift is present and disrupting the spinal nerves and spinal cord, it can create many different secondary conditions or symptoms. The reason these are called secondary conditions is because they are a result of the primary structural shift, or the underlying cause. The location of the structural shift and where the nerves are being disrupted will give us an idea about your secondary conditions. Some of these include:

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Arm Pain (Upper & Lower)

  • Asymmetry (Ex: low Shoulder)

  • Blood Pressure (High and Low)

  • Bone Spurs

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Cervical Myelopathy

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

  • Degenerative Joint Disease

  • Digestive Conditions

  • Disc Herniation/Pinched Nerves

  • Dizziness

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Tinnitis

  • Migraine Headaches

  • Muscle Spasm

  • Low Back Pain

  • Mid-Back Pain

  • Muscular Imbalance

  • Neck Pain

  • Nerve Impingement Syndrome (Pinched Nerve)

  • Posture-Related Issues (Including Poor Appearance)

  • Shoulder Pain

  • Spinal Canal Stenosis

  • Strength-Related Issues (Decreased Grip Strength)

  • Tendinitis

  • Tennis Elbow
