Medical Treatment and Results

Research has also shown chiropractic to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches.

Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care is generally considered a safe, effective treatment for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from moving furniture or getting tackled. Acute back pain, which is more common than chronic pain, lasts no more than six weeks and typically gets better on its own.

SI Joint and Knee Injections

Cortisone injections can be used on soft tissues and joints. The injections contain a powerful anti-inflammatory medication that can offer fast-acting relief for inflamed joints and tendons around the knees. The injections should only be administered by a professional, such as Dr. Willis, and the patient will only feel very minimal discomfort.

TPI Certified

At ProHealth Integrated Medical, we are TPI-certified. This means that we have been certified by the Titleist Performance Institute – the world’s leading authority in fitness, junior development, biomechanics, and coaching.

All treatment is based on an accurate diagnosis of your back pain. The chiropractor should be well informed regarding your medical history, including ongoing medical conditions, current medications, traumatic/surgical history, and lifestyle factors.

ProHealth offers chiropractic service, and chiropractor care as part of an approach to normalizing misaligned structures and posture of the human body. The spine is an extremely delicate part of our body which can be susceptible to damage as a result of trauma and/or aging. Pain is your bodies’ way of warning you of trouble. Continuous or recurring back, neck, or headache pain and stiffness aren’t normal and really should be looked at and treated.
