Our Wheat Ridge Chiropractor Can Treat These Conditions

The cause of many musculoskeletal conditions of the body begin with the spine. If the spine is misaligned (a condition called a subluxation), the vertebrae cause pressure and stress on the intervertebral discs and the nerves traveling from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. Many problems are caused by subluxations. Fortunately, symptoms that result from subluxation respond very well to a combination of chiropractic care with Dr. Al Simeone, along with soft tissue therapy and therapeutic exercise:


In spite of the mystery that still covers the root cause of this neurological overstimulation, chiropractic care can correct overstimulation of the nervous system. Chiropractic is proven to be a calming and balancing treatment for ADHD patients here in Wheat Ridge, without the side effects of pharmaceuticals.

Things like cat or dog dander, dust, grass pollen etc. Many of our patients have enjoyed natural, lasting relief from allergies by improving nervous system function through chiropractic care.

Poor ergonomics, posture problems and injuries can pinch nerves in the upper part of the spine that are responsible for movement and sensation in the arms. Most arm pain responds positively to chiropractic care.

Dr. Simeone can help your digestive system function and feel better.

Tech Neck

As more people (including children) are spending more and more time with their heads looking down over their phones & tablets, more and more people are suffering from tech neck. Tech neck caused by poor posture can cause neck & upper back pain, stiffness and headaches. This can be corrected with chiropractic treatment and changing ergonomics at home and in the workplace.

Disc Injury

The intervertebral discs sit between each of your vertebrae acting as a spacer for nerves with an important shock-absorbing function. Intervertebral discs allow your nerves to travel from your spinal cord to other areas of your body. Not only do disc injuries hurt, they interrupt vital signals that are sent from these nerves throughout the body causing more dysfunction. Regardless of the cause of your disc injury, Dr. Simeone offers Gonstead chiropractic care which is the gold standard for treating intervertebral disc injuries, to help patients get relief.
