Welcome to Total Wellness Center: Your Aurora Chiropractor
Chiropractic care is about aligning the body and relaxing the mind. As you get the body back into a place of balance and harmony, the tension held in the muscles is released. Chiropractic care increases blood flow, promotes healing and reduces stress you may not even realize you are carrying. Most patients find they have increased energy levels and an improved mood when they come for regular chiropractic care. For patients with a specific injury or issue that is bothering them, chiropractic care is a natural way to alleviate pain, stiffness and discomfort without medications or invasive procedures.

Conditions We Treat
Your Aurora chiropractic team deals with many issues every day. From severe injuries to diseases and common “wear-and-tear” issues, we see a lot of problems that can be corrected without pain medications or surgery. Here are just a few of the top conditions we treat regularly with chiropractic treatment plans.
Sciatica – Lower back pain that radiates through your hips, thighs, upper legs and torso, caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. Chiropractic care can help ease the pressure by treating the problems most often caused by bone spurs or herniated discs. Special stretching regimens can also help alleviate the pressure on the nerve that is causing the pain.
Back Pain — Causes of back pain include poor ergonomics, injuries, muscle strain and bulging discs. For some people, reducing or eliminating back pain is as easy as changing the kind of chair or desk they’re using at work. For others, more significant treatments like surgery may become necessary. However, thanks to chiropractic back pain treatment, many people can recover from back pain and realign their spines without painful surgeries or excessive time off work.
Neck Pain – Whether you have whiplash from a car accident injury , “text neck” or “computer neck” from poor posture, your muscle strain will improve with chiropractic help. We will get the neck aligned, loosen the surrounding muscles that are inflamed and then give you stretches or corrective exercises to help heal faster. Neck Pain Treatment is a safe and effective method when done with Chiropractic Care
Hip Pain – Arthritis, sprains, tendinitis, bursitis and sprains can all cause hip pain that may need a range of services to improve. Most of the time an adjustment to the spine will help align the hips to reduce pressure and improve the joint’s range of motion.
Leg Pain – From injuries to overuse, there are a lot of reasons you may experience strains, cramping, joint pain, muscle pain or reduced mobility. Chiropractic care will start by making sure your misaligned spine isn’t causing additional problems (which is often the case). Then will work to find the underlying cause, including the common ones like poor circulation, Achilles tendinitis, bursitis, herniated disc, hamstring pull, spinal stenosis or sciatica.
Shoulder Pain – Athletic injury, car accidents, falls and aging can all lead to a hurting or locked shoulder. The stiffness and pain may be caused by inflammation in the joint, tears in the muscles or other issues that need to heal correctly.
Headaches and Migraines – Severe headaches can be debilitating. Pinched nerves, inflamed neck muscles and other injuries can all cause headaches. Headaches can also be caused by stress or muscle tension. Chiropractic care makes sure the muscles are relaxed and helps heal headaches that are directly caused by injury or indirectly caused by strain.
Women’s Health Concerns – We can help with common women’s health concerns, like infertility, fatigue, premenstrual syndrome, pregnancy pains, hormonal imbalances, gastrointestinal issues and more. Working on relief from uncomfortable symptoms without medications or surgery will often lead to a better result with fewer side effects.
Sports Injuries – From the young athlete to the older and more seasoned athlete, sports injuries are common because of the stress put on our bodies. Overuse, collisions, impact, sprains, strains and dislocation are just a few of the many injuries that can be caused by a sport. As your Aurora chiropractor, we can help with problems like rotator cuff injuries, ankle sprains, lower back sprains, elbow tendonitis and more.
Auto Accident Injuries – We offer recovery and auto accident rehabilitation services after your car accident. Even the smallest “fender bender” can cause whiplash—leading to headaches, neck pain, reduced mobility, migraines and more. Immediate treatment is important for stopping injury symptoms before the cause secondary issues.
Chiropractic Services We Offer
Here at Aurora Chiropractic, we want to offer the services you most need for natural healing and whole body wellness. You may benefit from one or more of our services. We will select the ideal serves that best fit your needs as a patient.
Chiropractic Adjustments – Gently adjusting your spine and joints into place can have a major impact on how your body can function. Your chiropractor may also use the Activator Technique to help make adjustments with an instrument designed for low-force muscle manipulation.
Massage Therapy – Deep tissue massage can help relax tense muscles, increase blood flow and reduce irritation. Massage can be used to help your chiropractic adjustments last longer and can reduce pain without medications. We also use massage therapy to improve range of motion, relieve muscle spasms and improve overall mood by reducing feelings of stress.
Corrective Exercises – In order to build on the treatments you receive and strengthen your body to protect it against further injury, we design special exercise regimens for many of our patients. Stretches and strengthening exercises can improve your mental clarity and health through stronger muscles, increased mobility, improved balance and more.
