Conditions Treated by Our Chiropractor in Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula Area

Have you always regarded chiropractic care as strictly a "neck and back" pain relief option? If so, you'll be amazed to discover the wide range of conditions we can treat here at Maritime Chiropractic. Take a look at some of the most common conditions treated by our chiropractor in Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula area, Dr. Duppenthaler.conditions treated by our chiropractor in gig harbor

Back pain

Back pain may be caused by chronic spinal misalignment, degenerative issues such as bulging discs or arthritis, and acute injuries that strain muscles and herniate discs. We can provide natural back pain relief through chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine, spinal decompression to bring discs back into position, and laser therapy to soothe and rehabilitate injured back muscles.

Neck pain

Many of the same issues that can afflict the back can occur in the cervical spinal column and muscles of the neck. Our non-surgical techniques can relieve pinched nerves, joint pain, and neck stiffness.

Headaches and migraines

 Headaches and migraines can both be set off my muscle tension in the neck, although migraines can also be triggered by a variety of other environmental and biochemical issues. Chiropractic care can undo the neck tension that causes most chronic headaches. Chiropractic adjustments are also capable of reducing migraine pain and frequency.


The pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness of neuropathy may be related to nerve impingement, nerve damage or even toxins. Once we've isolated the cause of your neuropathy, we may prescribe spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, nutritional/lifestyle changes or laser therapy (which can help accelerate nerve repair).


Sciatica occurs when the nerve roots connecting the leg's sciatic nerve to the spine become pinched, usually by a herniated disc or other nearby abnormality. We can relieve your nagging low back pain and leg symptoms without drugs or surgery.

Auto injuries and whiplash

Auto injuries can afflict you with everything from soft tissue strains and sprains to pinched nerves and vertebral misalignment. You may also experience whiplash in the neck due to the sharp "whipping" of your head on impact. We can come up with a personalized holistic healing and pain relief program that addresses all of these injuries.

Work injuries

Work injuries may be sudden and acute, as in a herniated disc or pulled back muscle, or subtle and chronic, as in repetitive motion strains and "text neck" from incorrect head/neck posture. Our Injury Recovery Evaluation can start you back on the path to healing.

Extremity conditions

In addition to spinal corrections, we can adjust extremities and prescribe all-natural treatment for plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, carpal tunnel syndrome and more.

Dr. John is the best Chiropractor I have been to in a LONG time. I've seen more improvement in 2 months than I did in years at another place. My back thanks me
