Our Sarasota Chiropractor Treats Acute and Chronic Conditions at Lakeshore Chiropractic
If you live near Sarasota FL, let our team at Lakeshore Chiropractic be your home for drug-free and holistic healing from a variety of health conditions. Our chiropractor, Dr. Ryan James Vanlandschoot, has advanced certification and training in several chiropractic techniques that have been shown to help manage, heal, and prevent acute and chronic conditions affecting the spine and beyond.
Back Pain and Neck Pain
Back pain and neck pain are so common because the leading risk factors—excessive sitting, poor posture, poor ergonomics, overweight/obesity—are also common. Whether your back or neck pain is caused by arthritis, degenerative disc disease, vertebral joint misalignments, spinal stenosis, whiplash (common in auto accidents), muscle strains, or something else, our Sarasota chiropractor can use a variety of techniques to restore spinal health and improve the function of your central nervous system for improved overall well-being (not to mention natural pain relief).
Sciatica is a syndrome caused by compression of the sciatic nerve in the lower back (usually by a disc, misaligned joint space, or bony cyst). Symptoms include shooting leg pain and numbness. Through specific adjustment techniques, our chiropractor can alleviate pressure on the nerve and help it heal.
Sports Injury and Work Injury
Common types of injuries we see affecting athletes of all ages and people in the workforce include muscle strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, ligament sprains, tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis.
Our chiropractor won't just help you heal from these sidelining injuries. He'll show you what's contributing to them (poor posture, poor body mechanics, insufficient nutrition/hydration/rest, etc.) and prescribe exercises to improve your strength, endurance, and mobility for better performance. He can also use modalities like athletic taping and cryotherapy to alleviate pain and facilitate faster tissue healing.
Headaches and Migraines
Tension headaches leave people with a feeling of a tight band around the head. Migraine headaches can be much more severe and occur with vision changes, nausea, and other symptoms. Both types of headaches can be improved through chiropractic adjustments and other techniques. See Vanlandschoot if you'd like to see your headaches become less frequent and severe.
