We can help people of all ages here in our Chiropractic office

Chiropractic can help just about anyone, regardless of their age.

Low Back Pain

Here at our Newark Chiropractic office we like seeing back pain patients because we are confident that we can help them. Low back pain is a common complaint not only among our patients, but at medical offices as well. After the common cold, low back pain is the most common reason for work days missed.

What is so interesting about such a common problem is that according to a New York Time in-depth report, 85% medical examinations reveal low back pain of an unknown origin. 85%! That means that for 85% of low back pain in the world, your medical doctor has no explanation as to why it is happening. Do you who does know? Your local chiropractor!

Misalignments in the lumbar spine, the sacroiliac joints, and of the sacrum can cause local and radiating pain. Chiropractors are the only physicians available who can diagnose and treat these misalignments. So, we like treating low back patients because from our training and experience we are confident that we can help.

Neck Pain & Headaches

“I enjoy treating neck pain and headaches (since they usually present together). This is in part to my own personal experience when I was a child. When I was 12 years old, I was playing football with kids several years older than me. Long story short, I got tackled hard. When I say hard, I mean it was an ESPN highlight clip on hardest hits of the century,” states Dr. Wilkins.

“I started having constant mild neck pain from then on. Two years later, I was having moderate amounts of neck pain and also more headaches than ever before. I had been to several medical doctors and physical therapists. Basically, they said I experienced a whiplash type injury which I understood. What I didn’t understand why they didn’t have anything to help me.”

“By the time I was a senior in high school, I had constant neck pain, headaches, and bouts of anxiety and depression. Before I was to leave for college to play basketball, I was no longer able to turn my head to the left. My parents suggested I go to their chiropractor. I can’t tell you the amount of relief I felt upon being adjusted. My neck pain went away as did my headaches. This began my journey into chiropractic and treating people in pain just like I was. So, if you have neck pain or headaches, anxiety or depression, I know exactly how you feel and will do everything I can to get you better,” adds Dr. Wilkins.
