Anchorage, AK chiropractor

Dr. O’Mead is a chiropractor in Anchorage, AK practicing at Effective Chiropractic PC.

His principle and philosophy in helping people overcome head, neck, back, and joint pain is to treat the true cause of the pain. Most of the time, discomfort in someone’s neck or back is caused by a small (or sometimes a relatively large) misalignment of the vertebrae that make up the spine. When a vertebrae is misaligned (or subluxated) the nerve above or below it is usually pressed, causing mild to sometimes intense pain.

A subluxation refers to the presence of an incomplete or partial dislocation of a joint.

A chiropractic adjustment.

Historically, the detection of spinal misalignments (subluxations) by the chiropractic profession has relied on detection by hand or by X-ray findings. One or all of the following 4 physical signs and/or symptoms usually accompany subluxation:

  • Pain and tenderness
  • Asymmetry/misalignment
  • Range of motion abnormality or difficulty
  • Tissue/tone changes

Many say that Dr. O’Mead is gifted in that he is able to detect those small misalignments and help you find relief, in some cases, nearly immediately. If you are in the Anchorage area, you will want to schedule an appointment with him right away if you are experiencing any pain that includes headaches, pain in your neck, back or knees, and if you suffer from muscle pain. His chiropractic expertise can help you feel better fast. Some say that he can help you feel better than you even knew you could feel.

The other side to this is that even if you feel well at the moment, getting regular adjustments can keep you from falling into periods of pain and may make it less likely that you will have back or neck trouble in the future. It’s a lot like the old saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It is best to see Dr. O’Mead before the discomfort starts or even when you think it has gone away on its own. He is trained to help you feel better and live a life as free of pain as possible. His contact information is below.
