NOW ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS.
Dr. Craig Koshlap has been in practice for 17 years, so offers a lot of experience with a wide variety of conditions:
Headaches: 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. They can be dull and annoying, or just plain debilitating. When the nerves in the upper part of the neck and base of the skull become irritated, a person can suffer from headaches. These nerves can become irritated due to misalignments of the spine from poor posture, stress (which tightens muscles), or through injuries/repetitive motions. Research shows that chiropractic care can reduce this nerve pressure and be an effective way in relieving headaches.
Neck Pain: Neck pain can occur when nerves of the cervical spine become irritated or the muscles tighten up. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore the proper position of the vertebrae, thereby reducing the nerve interference. Neck pain is one of the major symptoms that drives people to seek chiropractic care at our office. Adjusting the spine with the gentle Activator Adjusting Instrument is a safe and effective way to reduce neck pain.
Shoulder Pain: Many people suffer from shoulder pain each day, whether it be from arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, a rotator cuff issue, and/or an impingement. Sometimes you can pinpoint a specific injury, other times it may be from just sleeping on that side too much. At Ridgeview Chiropractic, we have been fortunate to successfully treat a variety of shoulder conditions with gentle chiropractic and a variety of therapies. So whether you just tweaked it at the gym yesterday, or suffer from chronic shoulder problems, call Ridgeview Chiropractic for an appointment.
Low back Pain: 80% of Americans will suffer from low back pain at some time in their lives. As many of you know, this can be debilitating and can cause missed time at work, loss of sleep, problems getting along with others, and even ruined vacations. This is probably the most common symptom that we see here at Ridgeview Chiropractic, and we have had a lot of success with it. Many scientific research papers demonstrate that chiropractic care as a safe and effective way to relieve low back pain. Chiropractic can also help upper back, mid back and rib pain.
Sciatica: This is the condition where the nerves of the low back become irritated and pain/numbness/tingling radiates down one of the legs. Usually this is caused by one of three things: 1) a disc problem- bulging and protruding discs can put pressure directly on the nerve root 2) a misaligned vertebra- causes inflammation which irritates the sciatic nerve 3) Piriformis syndrome- pressure on the sciatic nerve from tightening of the muscle across the back of the pelvis/hip. Dr. K has had success in dealing with all 3 causes of sciatica with gentle and specific Activator adjustments.
Scoliosis: Have your kids been checked for scoliosis recently? At Ridgeview Chiropractic, we can help identify any potential problems as your child’s spine grows. Early detection and intervention is the key! Chiropractic care can help relieve the pain associated with scoliosis, and in some cases, make corrections of the curvature. Dr. K has had clinical success in reducing scoliosis in kids with gentle Activator adjustments, as well as additional therapies and exercises.
Pregnancy Discomfort: Being pregnant can create a whole new set of symptoms that you may not normally have. Back pain, sciatica, pain in the abdomen, groin and legs are all common as your body goes through additional weight gain and added pressure from the growing baby. Many expectant mothers choose chiropractic as a safe and effective way to reduce pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy. Dr. K cares for many women in his practice at all stages of pregnancy. The Activator Technique is perfect for delivering a gentle and specific adjustment to the expectant mother to help her during this amazing life change.
TMJ Dysfunction: TMJ problems can be caused by injuries and accidents, clenching or grinding your teeth, or even by poor posture. This can cause a misalignment of the joint of the jaw or muscular adhesions. The Activator Adjusting Instrument is a gentle way to treat many jaw problems including the pain, clicking and restricted range of motion of TMJ Dysfunction.
Auto Accident Injuries: Chiropractic care can help in the recovery of whiplash and other soft tissue injuries from motor vehicle accidents. Working in a personal injury clinic in Florida for 2 years, Dr. K has a lot of experience dealing with these types of injuries. At Ridgeview Chiropractic, we help a lot of patients recover from accident injuries through gentle chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage.
Sports Injuries: Every sport is equipped with its own set of potential injuries and long term wear and tear on the body. Baseball-shoulder and neck, Football and soccer- knees, hips and back, Basketball- ankles and feet, Gymnastics-low back and wrists, Weight Lifting- shoulders, low backs and wrists. Golf-back, shoulders and elbows. The list goes on. As kids start specializing in sports at earlier ages and start playing the same sport year round, the risk of repetitive injury increases. Ridgeview Chiropractic can help with these sports injuries, whether it be spine or extremities. We also care for those who are trying to enhance their athletic performance, including many long distance runners as they train for future races.
