Diversified chiropractic manipulation for common conditions and sports-related injuries
Dr. Tyler Page is not your typical chiropractor. Through a variety of highly-specialized, non-invasive techniques, Dr. Page can treat just about any condition related to the spine. Diversified chiropractic manipulation is a technique used by a doctor of chiropractic to locate joint dysfunction within the spinal column and extremities. It is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractors but differs from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of the spine and joint dysfunction. Like many chiropractic and osteopathic manipulative techniques, diversified is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. Another benefit of diversified adjusting is that it focuses on the areas of the spine that are highly-restricted. These typically are areas where the patient does NOT feel pain. By manipulating these hypo-mobile areas, you will get greater, longer-lasting relief than with the typical chiropractic adjustment. Most chiropractors do not adjust these highly-restricted areas of the spine because they are simply harder to adjust than the painful (hyper-mobile) areas of the spine.

- Back/neck injuries - Commonly described as local pain in an area, pains in the neck or lower back include tightness, soreness, stiffness and, while it can vary throughout the day, is typically pretty constant in nature. These types of injuries can develop over time or may be quick onset, as in the result of injuries. Each treatment is uniquely tailored to the specific needs of each injury and involves addressing all aspects of the injury, including muscles, joints, discs, and nerves.
- Sciatica - Sciatica is often misconstrued as an injury in the tailbone area but is actually felt as an electrical, stabbing pain that travels down the leg and can travel into the gluteal region and all the way down to the lower extremities. This injury can come from multiple causes, from the spine or surrounding musculature. It can be tricky to treat, but our office has a large toolbox and has all of the equipment and tools necessary to treat the various causes of sciatica.
- Numbness/tingling - Known as “neuropathy,” this is an issue like a compression or a choking of the peripheral nerves, causing numbness or tingling in the upper or lower extremities. Treatment first includes a detailed examination to accurately determine the cause and confirm it is neuropathy. Treatment can include soft tissue treatment to chiropractic manipulation of the spine and extremities.
- Bulging or herniated discs - Injury to soft tissue between the vertebrae of the spine, this can vary in the level of severity. This is a common injury in the workplace as well as on the athletic fields, in both active and sedentary populations. Although disc injuries range in their severity, our office has a great track record of successful resolution of this injury using conservative (non-surgical) treatments. This can include mechanical traction and flexion-distraction, which addresses the disc injury itself.
- Whiplash/auto accidents - This is a traumatic injury that involves whipping the head back and forth or side to side and usually includes a delayed onset of symptoms that progress in the days following an accident. It requires multiple steps of care, including an initial treatment of the soft tissue and acute injury and a resolution of symptoms. Depending on severity, there are different treatment options for this type of injury. If you have been involved in a car accident, our office does accept personal injury cases.
