Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the median nerve, the nerve running through the carpal tunnel, or center of the wrist, is damaged. It is common amongst those who frequently work with their hands such as office workers, hairdressers, painters, musicians, and cashiers. Symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling, and swelling in the wrist and hands.
The human spine is comprised of a total of 23 sponge-like discs, which act as shock absorbers between the vertebra, or bones that make up the spine. A herniated disc occurs when this spongy material bulges or protrudes between the vertebras.
A pinched nerve is simply another way to say a damaged nerve. A pinched nerve can occur in a person’s neck, back, and arms, as well as many other places in the body.
The sciatic nerve runs from the base of your spine down the length of your leg. Sciatica is a term used to describe the symptoms that occur when the sciatic nerve is irritated, pinched, or damaged. Symptoms of sciatica commonly include numbness, weakness or a tingling sensation in the calves, thighs, buttocks, and lower back.
Arthritis is an inflammatory joint disorder and is one of the most common disabilities in the United States. Symptoms include loss of motion, fatigue, weight loss, disturbed sleep patterns, and pain and tenderness in muscles.

Each exercise regime is specially tailored to the unique body type and condition of our patients.

To do so, we begin by performing stretches and exercises that relieve pain, followed by a exercises that are geared towards improving functionality and prevent pain and strain relapses.
We use a proprietary and patented tape to reduce swelling and treat muscular disorders. To do so, Shoreline Chiropractic Clinic will tape over and around one's muscles to provide support and prevent over-contraction. This method will allow the patient to have a full range of motion-thusly, allowing them to participate in physical activities with assistance. The Kinesio taping method also serves to provide facilitation of lymph flow throughout the day. http://www.kinesiotape.ca/
