3. Improves Your Posture
If you have poor posture from slouching or hunching over or from spending too much time staring at your cell phone or other digital devices, our chiropractor in Santa Clara can help you. Manual and/or instrument and KST chiropractic adjustments along with biophysics can help improve your posture and reduces headaches, neck pain and lower back pain (including upper back pain).
4. Reduces Back Pain
Back pain is the leading cause of discomfort our Chiropractor sees. Back pain can be caused by a herniated disc, pinched nerve or strain and sprain. If your back pain is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, you may also feel leg pain and have difficulty walking. Chiropractic adjustments, biophysics and motion palpation can help reduce your back pain and heal the underlying cause.
5. May Help Prevent the Need for Surgery
Have you been told that you need surgery for your back, shoulder, knee or wrist pain? If you have, you may want to consider seeing a chiropractor first. Chiropractic care can help reduce inflammation and pain while helping your body heal the injury. In many cases, the work our Chiropractor does is so effective that the patient no longer qualifies for surgery.
6. Get Better Sleep
Receiving regular chiropractic care can help you sleep better. Patients from our Santa Clara office have experienced this. Many patients who receive regular care from a chiropractor in addition to other treatments experience better sleep. This is due to the lower levels of pain, improved mood and overall health benefits, and when you get better sleep, you are more awake and productive during the day.
7. Improve Your Alertness
If you have trouble with mental fog or less than desirable levels of alertness, try chiropractic treatments from our chiropractor in Santa Clara. Conservative chiropractic treatments help keep your spine aligned and your central nervous system functioning properly, which means you may notice improved mental clarity and an improvement in your mood after just a few sessions.

9. Improved Immune System Function
Your central nervous system controls every process in your body, including your immune system. Patients who receive regular see a chiropractor regularly report fewer illnesses, like colds and the flu. You may even notice a reduction in your indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms. In our office, one patient said, “My family used to say to me, ‘When aren’t you sick?’. Since I’ve been getting chiropractic care, I rarely get sick”.
10. No Dangerous Side-Effects
Chiropractic care does not contain any side effects, and the treatments do not interfere with other treatments you may be receiving from your family doctor. That means that you can still see your regular doctor for conventional medical treatment while receiving chiropractic care for your musculoskeletal injuries.
11. Get Recommendations for Better Ergonomics

13. Chiropractic Care from Our Santa Clara Chiropractor Treats the Causes of Your Symptoms
Pain medications and anti-inflammatories do not treat the causes of your pain. Instead, they mask your pain so that you can get through your day. Chiropractic care from our Santa Clara chiropractor, on the other hand, treats the causes of your pain in order to provide you with long-lasting relief. Once your injuries are healed, we offer maintenance care that can help prevent future injuries and improve your overall health.
