Carpal Tunnel Syndrome  Waupaca, WI

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

CTS is a problem of the median nerve which runs from the forearm into the hand. When there is excessive pressure in the wrist, it causes swelling of the median nerve. This small area called the carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel at the wrist made up of bones, soft tissues, nerves, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. When the median nerve which runs through this tunnel gets compressed it causes pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the hand and wrist which radiates into the forearm. The carpal tunnel is the most common area that gets compressed in both the hands and feet.

CTS should be diagnosed and treated early. During your consultation, you will receive a standard physical examination of the hands, arms, shoulders and neck to help determine if your symptoms are related to daily activities or to an underlying disorder. Our highly skilled chiropractor will also utilize other orthopedic tests to try to produce the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Laboratory tests and x-rays can reveal diabetes, arthritis, fractures, and other common causes of wrist and hand pain.

Degenerative Disc Disease  Waupaca, WI

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is when natural changes in the discs of your spine cause pain. The discs between vertebrae act as shock absorbers for your spine, and as you age, they begin to lose flexibility. While this is a normal part of aging, it should not cause pain. If you experience pain due to this, it is classified as degenerative disc disease.

Each disc is composed of a sturdy outer wall and a soft, gel-like inner core. When we are born, these discs are primarily composed of water, but as age advances, the discs lose some of this water content and begin to get thinner. As you might imagine, this means each disc doesn’t absorb the shocks of everyday life as well.

headaches migraines  Waupaca, WI

Headaches/ Migraines

There are many types of headaches with a multitude of causes. Many patients have found relief or significant reduction of their symptoms through chiropractic treatment, which focuses on structural issues that can contribute to the formation of headaches.

When the spine loses normal motion, nerves in the neck and blood vessels to the head can be affected. When spinal nerves and the muscles of the neck are irritated, they can cause intense headaches.

Medication can give good short term relief, but it does not correct the mechanical issues that could be leading to headaches. Chiropractic treatment that includes gentle adjustments, exercise and other modalities, addresses both the muscles and the joints to help restore relaxation and normal function. This natural treatment style can offer a longer term solution than medication alone.

Pinched Nerve  Waupaca, WI

Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve can happen in a variety of places throughout the body with some of the most common being the lower spine, wrists, neck, and legs. A pinched nerve occurs when the muscles or tendons around the nerve are inflamed, putting pressure on the nerve and either causing pain or even numbness throughout the extremities related or attached to this affected nerve.
Your pinched nerve may be caused by different physical conditions such as carpal tunnel or a herniated disc. Though pinched nerves can be painful, the majority of patients find that their pinched nerve(s) goes away on its own.

If the pinched nerve does not resolve itself and you have persistent pain that lasts for more than a few days, you should seek medical attention by scheduling an appointment at Koch Chiropractic & Holistic Pain Solutions with our chiropractor. This is especially true if you’ve tried at-home treatments but feel like your pain is worsening as time progresses. With pinched nerves, it’s important to seek medical attention in order to identify the underlying cause of the pinched nerve to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

tmj  Waupaca, WI


TMJ is an abbreviation for the temporomandibular joint which connects the mandibular, or your lower jaw, to the temporal bones of the skull. The TMJ is one of the more unique joints within your body as it allows you to move your jaw forward, backward, and side to side so that you can chew, talk, sing, yawn, and more. This joint can be found just in front of your ears on both sides of your head.

Any problem with the muscles, ligaments, discs, bones, or the joint itself are known as temporomandibular disorders or TMD and refers to the actual disorder, where the jaw joint is misaligned and causing problems such as pain, inflammation, and inability to move or operate the jaw. However, these problems or conditions are often incorrectly called by the joint name of TMJ instead.

Vertigo  Waupaca, WI


Vertigo is the feeling that you are moving when you’re not. This sensation can be triggered by movements such as turning your head too quickly or looking down from a great distance, but it is ultimately caused by problems in the inner ear, brain, or brainstem. There are two different forms of vertigo with each stemming from various medical issues: peripheral vertigo and central vertigo.

Peripheral vertigo results in a problem with your inner ear and thus your balance, while central vertigo occurs when your brain or brainstem are suffering from a disease originating from your central nervous system (CNS). Peripheral vertigo is typically more severe, and central vertigo is more gradual in its onset. Regardless of the type of dizziness you are experiencing, more than likely, your quality of life is suffering because of it.

Whiplash  Waupaca, WI


Whiplash is an injury that occurs when the head and neck are whipped from back to front. Whiplash is a common result of rear-end collisions, but can also happen from other types of trauma, sports injuries and abuse.

At first, the injury may seem minor, but over time the symptoms can increase if left untreated. The most common symptoms of whiplash are decreased range of motion in the neck, headaches, blurred vision or dizziness, and pain in the neck, arms, shoulders and upper back. The injured person may have difficulty finding a comfortable position to sleep or may have trouble sitting for a long period of time.

Because whiplash injuries impact the spine, nerves and muscles in the neck, chiropractic treatment is an excellent choice for relief of the symptoms that are present after this type of injury. 

Chiropractors have extensive training in the evaluation and treatment of traumatic spinal injuries. Chiropractic treatments are not only gentle and safe, but many patients experience significant relief and avoid long-term problems through chiropractic care after a whiplash injury.
