Our “whole person” approach
Dr. Smerglia has a “whole person” approach to chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.
Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Smerglia will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient’s individual needs. With therapy, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
What conditions do we treat?
Whether you suffer from neck and back pain, migraines or sciatica, Dr. Kyle will accurately diagnose you and put you on a treatment plan that will work best for you and your schedule. Below are just a few of the conditions we can treat.
- Neck & Back Pain
- Migraines & Headaches
- Pinched Nerves
- Joint Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
Chiropractic Care for Neck & Back Pain
Most neck and back pain is caused by a combination of factors, including injury, poor posture, chiropractic subluxations, stress, and in some instances, disc problems. Major studies have shown that chiropractic care is more effective, cheaper, and has better long-term outcomes than any other treatment.
Chiropractic care is the only method of treatment that serves to re-establish normal vertebral motion and position in the spine; it can target:
- Neck pain
- Upper back pain
- Lower back pain
Chiropractic Care for Headaches
An effective treatment plan starts with a thorough assessment and may include manual spinal adjustments to relieve pressure that starts in the neck or affects nerves causing headaches. The chiropractor may also advise you on ergonomics, posture, relaxation techniques, and helpful exercises.
Chiropractic care offers pain relief without the side effects of medications for:
- Tension Headaches
- Cluster Headaches
Chiropractic Care for Pinched Nerves
The discomfort associated with pinched nerves can manifest in several as radiating or stabbing pain, pain in the arms, numbness, tingling, burning sensations and even muscle weakness.
Chiropractic care for this painful condition includes re-aligning the spine to relieve pressure and inflammation. There are many stress factors that can cause a pinched nerve, and chiropractors specialize in reducing that stress to treat pinched nerves as well as prevent them from occurring.
Chiropractic Care for Scoliosis
Many adults with scoliosis find that drug-free, non-invasive chiropractic therapy helps them breathe easier and feel better by decreasing the pressure on their nervous system and strengthening their body’s core.
The chiropractor can also recommend sleeping positions that can minimize pain, strengthening exercises to support joints, and ways to stay active without increasing the symptoms.
Chiropractic Care for Joint Pain & Extremities
Chiropractic care can be an extremely effective treatment for the following types of joint issues regardless of the cause, including repetitive use conditions like Tennis/Golfers Elbow and Carpal Tunnel.
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Wrist pain
Solutions for joint problems may include the application of heat and ice packs, gentle manipulation by the chiropractor to restore mobility, and gentle stretching and strengthening exercises that the patient can perform at home.
Chiropractic Care for Sciatica
Sciatica pain is the most common problem addressed at Smerglia Chiropractic. It’s so prevalent because almost anything – like sitting, bending, lifting and twisting – can trigger sciatic nerve pain that radiates all the way down the leg.
Your chiropractor will work with you to find the best treatment path, including:
- Spinal adjustments
- Cold therapy
- Cox Flexion Distraction
- Ultrasound treatment
- Rapid-release technology
Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia
More and more patients with fibromyalgia have been turning to chiropractic care to treat the neck pain, back pain, and leg cramps that often come with fibromyalgia.
There is currently no cure for this condition characterized by pain and stiffness all over the body. However, spinal manipulation performed by a chiropractor can effectively relieve the symptoms by decreasing pain and fatigue and improving the quality of sleep. Cupping is another technique used at Smerglia Chiropractic to treat fibromyalgia.
Chiropractic Care for Plantar Fasciitis
Chiropractors can assist with common foot problems like plantar fasciitis, which affects the connective tissue that runs from the Achilles tendon to the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis can lead to other chiropractic issues, like hip problems, and negatively impact muscles and connective tissue. This is why the chiropractor will evaluate the patient’s walking motion and spinal health as part of the therapeutic plan.
Chiropractic care may include Rapid Release Technology (RRT) which delivers high vibrations that can loosen up tight fascia, as well as guidance on helpful stretching exercises.
Care for Every Stage of Life
Recognized as a top chiropractor in Cuyahoga Falls, Dr. Kyle Smerglia and Smerglia Chiropractic have helped thousands of patients improve their quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care.
During pregnancy, a woman’s center of gravity shifts forward to the front of her pelvis. This additional weight in front, puts stress on the joints of the pelvis, lower back, and the fragile facet joints of the spine, as the baby grows. Any pre-existing problems in a woman’s spine tend to be exacerbated as the spine and pelvis become overtaxed, often leading to pain and difficulty performing normal daily activities.
Studies have found that about half of all expectant mothers develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies. This is especially true during the third trimester when the baby’s body gains the most weight.
Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the pain and discomfort frequently experienced in pregnancy. It is one safe and effective way to help the spine and pelvis cope with the rapid increase in physical stress by restoring a state of balance. In fact, most women have found that chiropractic care helped them avoid the use of pain medications during their pregnancy, and studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments help to reduce time in labor.
Dr. Smerglia is knowledgeable not only is chiropractic adjustments for adults but pediatric patients as well. One of the main types of chiropractic care for children is treating back and neck pain or other issues related to the spine. Chiropractors can check children as young as newborns for problems, especially those related to the health of their spine.
Chiropractors may also be able to help with other childhood conditions, such as:
- Chronic ear infections
- Difficulty nursing
