"Before meeting with Dr. Nate Miller I was experiencing pain nearly every day of my life in my upper neck which caused me head aches frequently. I was not sure what is was related to, but after regular visits with my new chiropractor Dr. Nate Miller, I am now living in much less pain. Thank You."

What is Chiropractic Care
In general, chiropractic care is a medical field that focuses primarily on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The most common pain that chiropractors help with are back pain, neck pain, sciatica and headaches. Chiropractors can treat several injuries especially sports injuries. There are several chiropractic clinics that have physical therapy and massage therapy for those individuals needing multiple treatments. One might say that these three things go hand in hand.
Chiropractors, or DCs, are people that use hands on treatment instead of medicines and drugs. The treatment includes an exam, X-rays, diagnosis and treatment. The most common therapeutic procedure performed by a chiropractor is an adjustment, or spinal manipulation. This is all the "back popping" that other people may refer to.
Adjustments help to restore the patient's joint mobility that has been caused by a tissue injury. Tissue injuries can occur in several ways such as improperly lifting any heavy object and repetitive stresses (sitting in a poor position that hurts the spine). Tissue injuries can cause severe pain and inflammation to the body. In some cases, a patient has limited range of motion due to the injury.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
There are many people in America that feel like chiropractic care is a hoax. Some people may wonder how a simple back and neck adjustment can cure an injury. It's simple. There are several benefits of chiropractic care, including the following:
- helps the body de stress and relax
- reduces chance of injury
- reduces soreness and pain, as well as muscle spasms and recovery time
- increases an athletes training effectiveness
- increases circulation and flexibility
- increases delivery of nutrients and oxygen
When a chiropractor sees a patient for the first time, they take a more holistic approach to the treatment plan. Chiropractors believe that when he or she finds the cause of the pain, it will provide significant long term benefits.
There are 24 discs in the spine. They must have movement in order to gain nutrition. In time, if there is not much movement, the spine will degenerate and cause pain. One's range of motion will decrease, and some people may go to his or her family physician when there is pain. Pain medication is usually given, but this is just like a band-aid. The pills cover up the pain temporarily, but if someone wants the pain gone long term then he or she should go see a chiropractor.
Numbness of the limbs
Numbness and tingling down the arms and legs, also known as paresthesia, can also include symptoms such as pain, burning, pricking, or creeping along the skin. These symptoms generally indicate a malfunction of sensory nerves.
How IUCCA Upper Cervical Care Relates to Numbness and Tingling in Arms, Legs
The purpose of IUCCA upper cervical care is to correct cervical spine mechanics that are irritating spinal cord tracts and nerve roots that extend down the arms as well as down the spinal cord to the legs. While many sufferers of numbness, tingling, and pain in their arms and legs recall specific traumas such as head injuries, auto accidents or falls, which could have injured their spines, some do not. An upper cervical examination utilizing Laser-aligned Radiography and Digital Infrared Imaging is necessary in each individual's case to assess whether an upper cervical injury is present and whether benefit from upper cervical care can be achieved.

Dizziness is a common description for many different feelings. Vertigo/dizziness is a complaint that has been documented as a finding after car crashes much scientific literature. One source stated that 15% of car crash victims will experience vertiginous symptoms and 4% will have associated tinnitis (ringing in the ears). This is especially true in the case of rear impact collisions. The feeling of dizziness may be very familiar to you, yet difficult to describe.
Vertigo is a medical term to describe the feeling of spinning, whirling, or motion either of yourself or your surroundings. This is the same feeling you might have after getting off a merry-go-round or spinning in place. Several diseases of the balance organs of the inner ear can cause vertigo, or it may be a symptom of a tumor or stroke. It may also be a result of an injury.
Dizziness may be just mildly annoying or caused by something possibly life threatening. Often after an auto accident injury people experience this as a symptom of the injury sustained.
When you might feel dizziness:
- Fainting or near fainting such as "at the sight of blood" or with emotional upset
- Fainting or near fainting from standing up too quickly or standing still too long
- Weakness during a flu, cold, or other illness
- Seasickness or motion sickness
- Queasiness, nausea, or vomiting
- Confused thinking
- Fatigue, tiredness, or daytime sleepiness
- Clumsy hands or stumbling walking
Joints are stabilized by thick bands of tissue called ligaments which surround them. These ligaments allow the joint to move only in specific directions. Some joints move in multiple planes; therefore, they need more than one group of ligaments to hold the joint in proper alignment. The ligaments are anchored to bone on each side of the joint. If a ligament is stretched or torn, the injury is called a sprain.
The cause of many instances of shoulder or arm pain is obvious. You do something to injure the arm or shoulder and immediately feel pain, such as in an auto accident. You may have broken a bone or dislocated your shoulder. Perhaps you strained tendons or ligaments by carrying too much weight for too long, by lifting something that was too heavy, overreaching or overexerting your arm-as when playing sports when you’re out of shape-or by keeping your arm in an awkward position or even by sleeping on the shoulder. The resulting pain may range from an annoying ache to an acute pain that makes it hard for you to use the injured arm.
There are other, less-obvious causes of shoulder or arm pain. Each is distinguished by where it is felt, whether it comes on suddenly or over time, when it is at its worst, if the pain extends to other joints in your body, and if other symptoms such as swelling, numbness, tingling, fever, fatigue, and insomnia accompany the pain. The causes of shoulder and arm pain include tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, and gout. Such pain may also result from a reaction to medications such as penicillin, anti-anxiety drugs, and oral contraceptives. Whiplash injuries, common in auto accidents, can also cause shoulder and arm pain.
Shoulder and arm pain may be referred from some other region of the body, as when someone suffering a heart attack feels pain in the left shoulder and down the left arm. The pain may also be referred from nerves associated with the joints in the upper spine or “trigger points” in the back, which are particularly responsive to chiropractic spinal adjustments designed to treat such problems.
Legs are generally abused from standing or sitting for long periods of time. It is important to stretch, massage, and incorporate joint movement to get pain relief. The knee is a complex joint influenced by muscles from above and below the joint. Knee instability is often compensated for by increased muscle tension in the leg muscles and shortening of the iliotibial tract (large connective tissue structure on the outside of the leg). Car accident injuries that damage these parts of the leg require special attention.
