Upper back pain Sitting at a desk, or working from a computer is the norm nowadays.  And the normal position of rounded sh oulders and forward head posture contributes to upper back pain.  Lasting relief depends on finding a doctor who can help you identify the underlying problem with your upper back, and not just chase the symptoms, like pain.

Middle back pain  Middle back pain tends to be an annoying discomfort.  And also a secondary issue.  Meaning it is most definitely a problem, but it might not necessarily be the main problem.  Instead, the core issue may exist in the neck, or upper back, or down in the hips or low-back.

Lower back pain This is one of the top reasons for disability and visiting the doctor.  Unfortunately, most treatments involve NSAIDS and opioid painkillers that do little to correct the underlying problem.  Instead, they mostly act like band aids by covering up the pain temporarily.  Why go the short-term pain relief route, when chiropractic care has been shown to be more effective in numerous studies for low back pain relief?  Dr. Matt Pennetti provides drug-free, life-enhancing low-back pain relief in the Centennial, CO area.

Neck Pain Your neck is the most vulnerable part of the spine and protects some extremely valuable parts of your brain stem and spinal cord.  If there is a core problem in the neck, or shift in the spine, it may contribute to sharp or dull neck pain.

Whiplash Whiplash is common in someone who was involved in a car accident.  Typically, when they were involved in a rear-end motor vehicle collision (MVA).  This injury occurs when the neck hyperextends due to the skull suddenly jerking backward and forwards.  The discomfort caused by the accident may last for weeks, or even months.

-Headaches Headaches are a common problem that many people living near the Denver Tech Center deal with.  Most reach for Advil, Aspirin, or Tylenol to treat the pain.  Unfortunately, this just covers up the symptoms like masking tape over a warning light.  Eventually, the headache will return because the problem wasn’t corrected.  Dr. Matt Pennetti has been helping people solve headaches naturally for almost a decade.

-Cluster Headaches AKA the “Suicide Headaches”.  Cluster heads, or those suffering with cluster headaches, are familiar with the sharp, stabbing pain behind one eye, along with the tears and frustration that follow.  Dr. Matt Pennetti became a Neuro-Structural Chiropractor in Centennial due to suffering with cluster headaches when he was younger.  Because of the astonishing success he had with his cluster headaches, as a result of receiving chiropractic care, Dr. Matt decided to help others do the same thing.

-Migraines This is not just a normal headache.  Migraines are debilitating pain that can ruin a day, weekend, or entire week.  They may or may not present with a visual aura.  Followed by an excruciating headache that typically forces the migraine sufferer into a dark, quiet room.  Most migraine sufferers rely on medications like, Triptans and opioids.  Unfortunately, these pills do little to correct the underlying issues that contribute to the migraines.  As someone who’s overcome debilitating pain from headaches, Dr. Matt Pennetti has been able to help hundreds of migraine sufferers solve their pain.

-Sciatica Pain that starts in the low-back, or buttox, and shoots down the back of the leg, past the knee, is referred to as sciatica.  This pain can flare up out of nowhere and grab the victim mid-step, or while sleeping.  Sciatica can be caused by irritation to the lumbar nerve roots, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasm, lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, or pregnancy.  Most try to stretch out the sharp pain, or take some sort of pain relieving medication.  This may help for a short period of time, but the sciatica comes back because the underlying problem hasn’t been corrected.  In order to achieve lasting relief, it’s important to address the underlying issues to the sciatica.  Dr. Matt focuses on correcting the underlying issues that are contributing to your sciatica, using a natural approach that achieves lasting relief.

Pregnancy As baby develops, the mother’s body will be forced to change and adapt.  Because of this, she may begin to experience a host of abnormal symptoms, such as hip pain or hip tightness, pubic symphysis pain, or back pain.  Many times this can be made worse by pre-existing problems in the spine.  Once these problems are corrected, they allow the future mom to be more comfortable throughout her pregnancy.

Postpartum Once a healthy baby has been delivered, the real work begins for mom.  We see a dramatic decrease in support for mothers once pregnancy is over.  Unfortunately, moms are usually dealing with little sleep, imbalanced hormones, pelvic pain, and hip pain, along with low energy and mood swings.  The nervous system plays a role in every symptom mentioned previously.  To ensure the nervous system isn’t irritated and causing problems for a postpartum mother, it’s important to make sure the spine, which protects the nervous system, is in a good and healthy position.  By doing so, many moms notice a dramatic improvement to their postpartum life.

Breech Baby About 3-5% of pregnancies result in a breech baby.  This means, instead of the baby being head down, he/she is either bottom down, or feet down.  If the baby is not head down, the likelihood of complications during delivery goes up.  Fortunately, there is a protocol known as Webster’s Technique, that is great at helping this problem by releasing the Round Ligament, and ensuring the sacrum is in a normal position.  Because of addressing these two common factors, the baby then has more room and may feel more comfortable to go head down.  Many moms wait until 36-37 weeks before seeking Webster’s Technique.  This may work, but often makes it hard on the provider to have enough time to get lasting change.  We encourage moms to take action earlier, if there is a chance that baby is breech.

Pregnancy Hip Pain Hip pain is common for a pregnant mom, especially during the third trimester. As the mother’s body prepares for birth, by releasing hormones that cause her body to stretch and relax, pain and soreness often ensue.  And typically the discomfort is stronger on the side where the baby lies on the uterus.  A well-trained chiropractor for hip pain during pregnancy can help to alleviate some of the discomfort by ensuring the mom’s pelvis and associated ligaments/muscles are in an ideal position, instead of creating more pressure and stress. Dr. Matt Pennetti and his wife Dr. Lauren Pennetti specialize in pregnancy chiropractic care, and postpartum chiropractic care.

Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) This is a group of symptoms that cause discomfort in the pelvic region.  Typically, this problem begins during pregnancy when the pelvis becomes uneven or stiff.  It’s also known as pelvic girdle pain, or pubic symphysis pain. For pregnant moms dealing with this pain, Dr. Matt Pennetti and Dr. Lauren Pennetti correct core problems that may be located in the pelvic area to help the pregnancy be more comfortable, with less pain.

Round Ligament Pain During Pregnancy This is sharp pain often felt in the lower abdomen, or groin.  It may be felt on one or both sides.  This is common pain, but one that can be improved by a specific technique.  Webster’s Technique is an approach applied by Dr. Matt Pennetti and Dr. Lauren Pennetti to help alleviate round ligament tightness.  This allows for more comfort and less irritation in the pelvic region.

Disc Injury A disc injury, known as a bulging disc, herniated disc, or slipped disc is due to the jelly-like substance at the center of a disc, being forced out. Once the substance is pushed out, it can apply pressure to nerves, causing intense pain, numbness and tingling.  Fortunately, Centennial Chiropractor, Dr. Pennetti provides a successful, non-surgical chiropractic treatment option that may provide healing and pain relief, whether you have a bulging protrusion or a fully herniated disc.

-Osteoarthritis Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more of your joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.  In our Greenwood Village chiropractic office, Dr. Matt Pennetti has helped hundreds of people overcome debilitating pain caused by osteoarthritis using natural chiropractic relief techniques.

Elbow Pain The elbow is a hinge joint that is very prone to injury from overuse and trauma. This joint is commonly affected in athletes such as, tennis players and golfers.  This explains the reason for the terms tennis elbow, or golfer’s elbow, even if your injury has nothing to do with these sports.  Centennial chiropractor, Dr. Matt Pennetti has found that most elbow pain is not the result of an actual elbow problem.  The core reason for the pain is actually located above or below the elbow.  As a result of this discovery, our Centennial chiropractic office provides a safe, natural, and effective way to help those suffering with elbow pain get back to normal activity quickly.

Fatigue – This is a constant, lingering tiredness that tends to be limiting.  Some cases can be so severe to be labeled chronic fatigue. There are a number of reasons for fatigue, allergies, depression, anxiety, etc.  After working with hundreds of people dealing with fatigue, Centennial chiropractor, Dr. Matt Pennetti has developed an all-inclusive strategy to help naturally reduce some of the main causes of fatigue.  By following the protocol, the person can expect more energy and capacity to get things done throughout the day.ADHD Formerly called ADD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a condition that leads to impulsivity and inattentiveness.  Ritalin, which is a stimulant, is commonly used to treat the issue.  However, it comes with a host of side-effects, including nervousness, psychosis, increased blood pressure, and sleep problems.  Fortunately, there are alternatives.  And Dr. Matt Pennetti has been helping kids and adults deal with ADHD for years in Centennial, CO through chiropractic care.  It’s a natural remedy that includes no medications.

Insomnia A sleep disorder where a person has trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep.  Acute insomnia may last 1 night for a couple weeks.  Chronic insomnia is sleep loss for at least 3-days per week, for 3-months or more.  Sedatives like Ambien are commonly prescribed for sleep disorders.  However, these medications carry side effects like sleep walking, sleep driving, and even sleep shopping.  It’s important to note that sleep aids do not provide deep, restful sleep.  They only provide a pseudo sleep, known as sedation.  Fortunately, Centennial chiropractor, Dr. Matt Pennetti has helped hundreds of people overcome sleep loss through chiropractic, and other natural relief treatments and protocols.

Snoring Snoring is the sound when air blows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing the tissues to vibrate.  This may indicate a serious health condition, such as sleep apnea.  One possible contributing factor that isn’t discussed often is the loss of a proper cervical curve, or text neck.  As the curve in the neck begins to disappear, the tissues along the throat begin to impede on the airway.  Dr. Matt Pennetti has spent years helping hundreds of people solve symptoms and problems that stem from a loss of cervical curve.

Degenerative Disc Disease This occurs when the normal shape of the vertebrae and discs begin to warp and change, ultimately putting pressure on the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves in your spine.  This is abnormal wear and tear that occurs over years.  Fortunately, Greenwood Village chiropractor, Dr. Matt Pennetti has spent years helping hundreds of people solve the pain and discomfort from degenerative disc disease.  He does this through specific, gentle, and natural Neuro-Structural Chiropractic care.

Auto Accident Injury Car accidents can be terrifying and often leave the victim with significant pain.  It may be a whiplash injury, sprain/strain, numbness and tingling, neck pain, or low-back pain.  Depending on the severity of the collision, the pain may last a few days, to a few months.  Taking action immediately following the auto accident is important.  Instead of opting for addictive and harmful medications like opioid medications, Dr. Matt Pennetti helps victims of a car crash heal naturally through gentle, and specific chiropractic care.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by a few different mechanisms.  It can be due to pressure in the carpal tunnel itself, it can be due to impingement in the elbow, shoulder, or even the neck, or what’s referred to as the cervical spine.  After helping hundreds of people overcome carpal tunnel syndrome, Centennial chiropractor, Dr. Matt Pennetti understands the value of getting to the source, or underlying issue in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  Dr. Matt Pennetti is able to uncover core problems that may be contributing to carpal tunnel through specific and instrument based chiropractic care.Frozen Shoulder Also known as adhesive capsulitis causes stiffness in the shoulder joint.  This makes it hard for someone to lift their arm over their head. Symptoms may begin gradually and become worse.  Treatment may include muscle relaxers or NSAID’s.  But these medications never get to the real reason for the shoulder pain.  Fortunately, Dr. Matt Pennetti specializes in natural relief for the frozen shoulder symptoms.

Shoulder Pain Shoulder pain may be due to a frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tear, sprain/strain, AC joint separation, trapezius muscle that is tight, or loss of the normal cervical curve.  Fortunately, Dr. Matt Pennetti has spent years helping people overcome shoulder pain through natural chiropractic care, without the need for medications or surgery.
