If you’re new to chiropractic care, there are a number of reasons to visit a chiropractor and so many ways they can help you, no matter where you feel pain in your body. From extreme neck and back pain, to shoulder and knee pain, sciatic nerve massages and more, there are a lot of ways our Littleton chiropractic office can help ease your pain without surgery or pain medicines.
Our Littleton chiropractic office treats patients in nearly every capacity. No matter where you feel pain, our chiropractic and medical team treat your whole body and work to see where the root of the problem is. See below for all the different reasons you can and should seek chiropractic care.
Chiropractor Treatment For Neck
One of the most common reasons to see a chiropractor near you is neck pain. Did you know your head weighs an average of 12 pounds? Because your neck is in charge of holding all that weight and is used in almost every function of your life and well as providing a wide range of motion, your neck is especially susceptible to being injured.
Our chiropractors do a full medical exam and history on all of our new patients, then create an effective treatment plan for your neck pain moving forward. Sometimes that means regular chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy (which can be done in our office), and other non-surgical treatments like cervical traction.
Our Littleton chiropractors do a thorough exam of every patient, because each patient is different and we treat them as such. We want our chiropractic treatment to be effective for all of our patients by helping reduce pain and getting them back to their regular activities.

Lower Back Pain Chiropractic
Lower back pain is another top reason people seek a chiropractor doctor. According to this Harvard article, “An estimated 85% of people experience back pain severe enough to see a doctor at some point in their life.”
Another study suggests that people who received six weeks of chiropractic treatment for lower back pain:
- reported less pain intensity
- experienced less disability and more improvement in function
- reported higher satisfaction with their treatment
- needed less pain medicine.
Our Littleton chiropractors have more than 20 years experience treating low back pain, and we believe in getting you back to good health without recommending surgery or prescribing pain medications. Many times an exercise and stretch regime with a physical therapist combined with regular chiropractic adjustments will help alleviate pain almost immediately, and sometimes lifestyle modifications are exactly what you need to alleviate lower back pain. Sometimes that can mean changing your work-from-home office setup, exercising more, or possibly losing some weight to help alleviate the back pain.
Chiropractor For Sciatica
Sciatic pain is another common reason to seek chiropractic care. Chiropractic for sciatica is one of the most effective ways to treat sciatic pain, and it’s non-invasive and done in our Littleton office.
The most common symptom of sciatica is pain, followed by other symptoms including inflammation, burning sensations, shooting pain, weakness, and sometimes numbness that radiates down your legs. Sciatic nerve pain can last for weeks, and many times our patient’s come to us as a last resort, when chiropractic care for sciatica should be at the top of your list.
Decompression of spine or spinal decompression is a common treatment for sciatica, and one that we do in our office, along with sciatic nerve massages, chiropractic adjustments and stretches, and more. Because Ultimate Health Medical Clinic offers all of these chiropractic services in our Littleton office, patients are able to come in for one visit and get a number of chiropractic treatments done in the same visit, making it incredibly effective and convenient.

Knee Pain Chiropractic
You may not think of seeking chiropractic care for knee pain or kneecap pain, but it’s incredibly effective. Chronic knee pain is one of those pains people automatically associate with getting older or arthritis.They think it’s just a new way of life they must adjust to, but knee pain treatment with a chiropractor can help alleviate pain, stabilize the kneecap, and can help you start feeling good again.
Speaking of chiropractors, did you know your spine could be the main reason you are suffering knee pain when running or knee pain when bending? Your spine plays such a large role in your central nervous system, so it’s actually quite common.
A chiropractor can help adjust any spinal misalignments, which may have been putting extra weight on one side versus the other, therefore creating knee pain. Seeing a doctor for knee pain can help by mobilizing the joints, increasing or testing your range of motion, and reducing inflammation.
Physical therapy, trigger point massages, and targeted stretches or exercises can also help strengthen and stabilize your knee. Hip pain and hip joint issues can also be another common cause for knee pain.
By seeing our Littleton chiropractor, we treat the whole body and the root of the pain, not just the symptoms.

If you feel your knees have started to stiffen or become inflamed, it could be the beginning of arthritis, and our team can help. Call our Littleton chiropractor office to help with nagging knee pain, whether it’s from an injury, or a more subtle pain that came out of nowhere.
Shoulder Pain Relief
If your shoulder has become stiff or doesn’t move quite like it used to, that’s a sign you need to see a chiropractor for shoulder pain relief, especially if the pain is constant. Shoulder pain can present in a number of different ways and injuries, but the most common is front shoulder pain, like a torn or strained rotator cuff.
A few common shoulder injuries include impingement, tendor tears, bursitis, tendonitis, or a broken bone like a broken collarbone from a fall. Many doctors will be quick to recommend shoulder surgery, but our chiropractic team can treat a number of shoulder pain issues in our office, without medication or surgery.
Ultimate Health works to make sure surgery and medications are your last resorts. Instead we try to restore your shoulder by increasing your range of motion or working on your shoulder instability with targeted exercises you can do both in our office and as part of your home treatment plan. A combination of chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy will usually make a significant impact and reduce your shoulder pain.
Whiplash Injury Treatment in Littleton
Did you know whiplash injury isn’t always apparent immediately following an auto accident, and you can suffer whiplash at speeds as low as 5 MPH? Seeking chiropractic care after a car accident is highly recommended, even if you don’t think you’ve been injured. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to your health.
Symptoms of whiplash include pain, decreased range of motion or stiffness, headaches, tenderness and tingling sensations, to name a few. Hidden trauma to your lumbar spine or lower back are common in auto accidents, even if you are sitting at a stoplight and get rear-ended at a low speed. We always recommend seeking a doctor after an auto accident, just to be on the safe side.

Littleton Chiropractic Massage
Getting regular massages can do wonders for your overall health and mood. We have three chiropractic massage therapists in our Littleton office with varying hours throughout the week. Chiropractic massages are known to ease tension, improve your circulation, reduce stress, and alleviate pain throughout the body. Part of seeing a lower back pain doctor is getting regular massages to target the areas of pain and stiffness. We offer four types of chiropractic massage, including deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, trigger point massage, and sports massage.
