Chiropractic & Wellness Care at Pinto Chiropractic in Greenwood Village
Pain originates in the nervous or musculoskeletal system. Neck pain, back pain, shooting pains in the legs and chronically stiff and sore joints are almost always due to nerve compression caused by improperly aligned spinal vertebrae. When vertebrae move out of correct positioning within the spine and impinge on sensitive nerve endings, pain can affect any part of your body.
Your chiropractor in Greenwood Village, Dr. Glenn Pinto, offers effective and direct approaches to pain resulting from involvement in a car crash, work injuries, sports injuries or personal injuries. The best chiropractic treatment for relieving pain associated with musculoskeletal or nervous system dysfunction is a spinal adjustment. By gently manipulating vertebrae so they return to their proper positions, Dr. Pinto removes compression on nerves, alleviates inflammation and restores normal functioning to your nervous system. In addition, an adjustment dramatically improves blood flow to all areas of the spine so that absorption of cytokines (chemicals producing inflammation) promote the healing process.

Car Crash Injuries–Whiplash
Cervical acceleration-deceleration disorder (CAD) or whiplash, is a severe injury to the neck and upper back usually caused by slow-speed auto accidents. Whiplash happens when a spinal ligament called the anterior longitudinal ligament is violently stretched as the head whips forward and immediately backward at the moment of impact. Unless whiplash treatment is initiated immediately after an auto accident from a trained auto injury doctor, soft tissues damaged by excessive g-forces will continue to deteriorate and cause chronic pain, headaches, chest pain is mistaken for a heart attack and even psychological issues due to the stress of coping with daily pain.
Most spine and back trauma associated with car crash injuries prevent the body from functioning optimally as a whole unit. Your Greenwood village chiropractor Dr. Pinto recommends undergoing adjustments to reposition misaligned spinal vertebrae, a condition frequently responsible for overall poor health following involvement in an auto accident. In addition, Dr. Pinto will diagnose and treat whiplash or other crash-related spine conditions using principles of chiropractic medicine after obtaining a medical history, performing a physical examination and ordering laboratory tests, if necessary.
Chronic Pain Relief
Pain management provided by your chiropractor in Greenwood Village is designed to relieve chronic neck pain and back pain while also improving your quality of life. Chiropractic pain management differs from simply taking medications to relieve pain because of its multidisciplinary approach to pain attributed to fibromyalgia, neuropathy, migraines, sciatica and other disorders causing chronic pain. Managing your pain with a variety of chiropractic techniques helps you achieve pain relief holistically instead of relying on prescription medications known to cause unpleasant side effects.
Neck and back pain are commonly attributed to one or more of the following conditions:
- Herniated disc (upper cervical, middle and lower back)
- Muscle/ligament sprain/strain
- Compressed spinal nerves
- Degenerative disc disease
- Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
- Spinal stenosis
Chiropractors are not just “spine and joint” doctors. They also treat health problems such as stress, insomnia, weight gain, digestive disorders, chronic fatigue, migraines and even memory loss. In addition to earning their chiropractic degree, chiropractors also complete extensive education programs regarding musculoskeletal physiology, nutrition, pathology, human anatomy, and diseases/disorders. Dr. Pinto is sincerely concerned about your health and develops personalized treatment programs for each patient to precisely addresses your unique health needs.
Many health issues affecting women can be attributed to hormonal fluctuations, premenstrual syndrome, stress, lack of sleep and pregnancy. Nerve compression due to spinal subluxation (misaligned spine) will interfere with normal functioning of a woman’s endocrine system. Glands producing hormones and neurotransmitters regulating sleep, energy, mood and general well-being are negatively impacted by widespread inflammation of the nervous system.
Pregnancy and lower back pain (particularly sciatica) affect nearly all pregnant women. Biomechanical and physiological problems caused by weight gain, hormone release and increased pressure on the pelvic bones and muscles are responsible for back pain in late-stage pregnancy. Adjustments are perfectly safe for pregnant women to undergo regularly during their pregnancy and can relieve back pain by eliminating intradiscal pressure within the spine. Adjustments can also help women experience a more comfortable and healthier pregnancy.
