Sitting Too Much
- Weight Gain
- Back Pain
- Bad Posture
As any Bay Area resident will tell you, the majority of our day revolves around sitting. Whether it’s the long commute to and from work, spending the entire day at work on a computer, staring at our cell phones, or watching our favorite T.V show at home, the sedentary lifestyle we lead is detrimental to our health. These activities share a common theme and can lead to muscular imbalance in the body.
At ProActive Chiropractic, we effectively use movement based screening to identify where the imbalance is so that we can accurately treat and reverse dysfunctional patterns to get you moving better and faster throughout your day. In addition to movement screen tests, rehab stretches and exercises are given to help strengthen weak muscles that are critical for joint stability and relax tight muscles necessary for appropriate functionality.
It’s an exciting time in our patient's’ life when they decide to prepare to have a child. It’s no secret that pregnancy is very laborious and demanding on the body. The last thing expecting mothers want to worry about are chronic aches and pains that follow them throughout their entire pregnancy experience.
That is why the ProActive Chiropractic team is here to ease your worries by carefully diagnosing and treating the underlying issue. Utilizing gentle chiropractic adjustments and supportive Kinesio Taping methods, our doctors are happily able to offer women a healthy pain free pregnancy.
Almost everyone experiences a headache at some point, and it only takes one to realize how awful they are. Headaches can present with a variety of symptoms, usually involving a decrease in energy, difficulty focusing or concentrating, as well as sensitivity to sound and light, just to name a few.
Headaches can stem from a number of causes: fixations in the neck, tightness in the neck and shoulder muscles, dehydration, chemical reactions, among others.
If you experience frequent headaches, chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy can often help to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
Our doctors will perform a thorough exam to find the cause of your headache then develop an appropriate treatment to eliminate the symptoms.
Degenerative Disc Disease
In Degenerative Disc Disease, the discs between the vertebrae (the bones that make up your spine) shrink and get thinner over time. The discs serve as a shock absorbers in our spines and spacers between the vertebrae holding plenty of space for the nerves to exit the spine without interference. The disc is subject to degeneration over time as a result of constant repetitive stress.
Degenerative changes can be accelerated by trauma, poor posture, and the stress of repetitive motions. Discs do not receive nutrients through a blood supply like the rest of our body. Instead, they receive nutrients through movement which pulls water and nutrients into the discs allowing them to stay healthy.
Although nothing can restore thickness of the discs, chiropractic care can improve the movement of your joints and muscles leading to less wear and tear on the discs.
After going through a thorough history and examination, our doctors decide if further imaging is necessary to evaluate the area of complaint.
In many cases, the symptoms of Degenerative Disk Disease can be reduced or eliminated with conservative care.
Degenerative Joint Disease
Degenerative Joint Disease, also known as Osteoarthritis, is a progressive disorder that affects the cartilage surrounding the area of bone that moves inside the joint. Currently affecting over 27 million Americans over the age of 25, the degeneration is typically seen in weight bearing joints such as the knee or hip however, it may also occur in other joints in the hands and neck.Many patients suffering from this disorder express pain, stiffness, and loss of flexibility, especially in the morning.

Rehab stretches and exercises are also prescribed in order to help strengthen weak muscles that are critical for joint stability and lengthen tight muscles necessary for proper motion.
Our hands on approach will increase your flexibility, help circulate blood flow and nutrients to the area, and decrease your pain efficiently to get you back doing the things you love.
