Conditions Treated

The caring staff at Total Alignment Center in Stafford Township, NJ, is proud to offer a wide range of treatments for several well-known conditions. The following are some of the primary conditions we treat at our practice:

Common Conditions

TMJ

A painful condition of the jaw that can be problematic enough on its own. It also happens to trigger other health complications, such as chronic pain, headaches, and ear pain, among other things.

Disc Degeneration

Affecting nearly three million people each year in the U.S., disc degeneration has no cure. However, some treatments can help reduce pain and discomfort associated with the condition without resorting to surgeries that only offer marginal odds of success.

Sciatica

Also called lumbar radiculopathy, sciatica refers to pain, numbness, and weakness related to the sciatic nerve. The pain often radiates along the sciatic nerve and can leave extremities, such as the toes, feeling numb or weak.

Sinus Pressure

This condition feels like a heavy, uncomfortable weight around your forehead, cheeks, and eyes, often caused by the buildup of mucus or inflammation in the sinus cavities.

Sinus Infection

Also known as sinusitis, this occurs when your sinus cavities become inflamed, swollen, and filled with fluid, causing pain and making it difficult to breathe through your nose.

Sinus Pain

This is discomfort or throbbing pain in the areas around your nose, eyes, and forehead, typically resulting from sinus pressure or infection.

Earache

A sharp, dull, or burning pain in the ear that can be caused by a variety of conditions, including infections, changes in pressure, and ear trauma.

Ear Infection

An infection occurs when germs invade parts of the ear and can affect the outer, middle, or inner ear, often causing pain, fluid buildup, and sometimes difficulty hearing.

Swimmer's Ear

An infection in the outer ear canal, often caused by water that remains in your ear after swimming, creating a moist environment that aids bacterial growth.

Vertigo

A sensation of spinning or dizziness, often related to problems with the inner ear or vestibular system, affecting your balance.

Clogged Ear

This feeling occurs when the ear canal gets blocked by fluid, wax, or changes in pressure, leading to muffled hearing and discomfort.

Migraines

Severe, throbbing headaches often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound, sometimes preceded by warning signs known as aura.

Headaches

A broad term for any pain in the head, ranging from sharp, throbbing, dull, or aching pain, which can be caused by stress, tension, environmental factors, or other health issues.

Lock Jaw

A condition where the jaw muscles spasm and lead to a temporary lockup of the jaw, making it difficult to open or close the mouth fully, often associated with TMJ disorders.

Jaw Pain

Discomfort or pain in the jaw, which can be caused by a variety of issues, including TMJ disorders, arthritis, dental problems, or injury to the jaw area.

Neck Pain

This common discomfort can result from poor posture, prolonged use of computers or smartphones, or sleeping in an awkward position, leading to aching or sharp pain in the neck area.

Stiff Neck

Characterized by difficulty moving the neck and discomfort when trying to turn the head, often resulting from muscle strain or underlying neck issues.

Torticollis

A condition where the neck muscles contract, causing the head to twist to one side. It can be congenital or develop due to environmental factors, leading to an abnormal, often painful neck position.

Neck Spasm

Sudden, involuntary muscle contractions in the neck that cause sharp pain and restrict movement, often triggered by stress or muscle overuse.

Whiplash

A neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like during a car accident. It can result in pain, stiffness, headaches, and dizziness.

Shoulder Pain

A broad symptom that can arise from various issues, including overuse injuries, dislocations, or degenerative diseases, causing discomfort and limiting range of motion.

Rotator Cuff

A group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder. Injuries here can cause a dull ache deep in the shoulder, which might worsen when you’re resting or using the arm.

Shoulder Discomfort

General unease or mild pain in the shoulder that may not stem from a specific injury, often related to overuse or strain.

Frozen Shoulder

Also known as adhesive capsulitis, this condition is characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, making it difficult to move the shoulder.

Tennis Elbow & Golfer’s Elbow

These are forms of tendonitis that cause pain on the outside (tennis elbow) or inside (golfer’s elbow) of the elbow, often due to repetitive wrist and arm motions.

Elbow Pain

This can occur from a variety of activities that might strain the joint, leading to discomfort or aching in the elbow region.

Sharp Pain in Arm

Sudden, intense pain that might result from injury, nerve damage, or other acute conditions, affecting any part of the arm.

Torn Bicep

This injury involves the tearing of the bicep muscle fibers, leading to severe pain, weakness, and sometimes a noticeable bulge in the arm.

Arm & Forearm Pain

General discomfort or aching in the arms and forearms, which can arise from overuse, injury, or conditions affecting the muscles and nerves.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A condition caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist, leading to numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand.

Pins and Needles (Paresthesia)

An abnormal sensation of tingling or pricking, often felt in the hands or feet, usually transient but can be chronic in certain neurological conditions.

Upper, Mid, & Lower Back Pain

Discomfort or pain that can occur in any part of the back due to a variety of reasons, including strain, injury, or underlying conditions, often affecting posture and mobility.

Sharp Lower Back & Lumbar Pain

Sharp Lower Back & Lumbar Pain: Intense, stabbing pain in the lower part of the back, which can be due to issues like herniated discs, sciatica, or muscle spasms.

Lower Spine Ache

A dull, continuous pain centered around the lower spine, potentially stemming from overuse, spinal degeneration, or other spinal conditions.

Hip Pain

Discomfort around the hip joint that can result from conditions such as arthritis, hip fractures, or tendonitis, affecting mobility and comfort.

Sacroiliitis & Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Inflammation of one or both of the sacroiliac joints, causing pain in the buttocks or lower back, and can extend down one or both legs.

Bursitis Hip

Inflammation of the bursae (fluid-filled sacs) in the hip, leading to joint pain and tenderness.

Hip Pain When Walking

Discomfort or pain in the hip area that becomes apparent or worsens with walking, often indicating joint wear, inflammation, or alignment issues.

Hip Joint Pain

A deep, aching pain in or around the hip joint, potentially signaling arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other joint conditions.

Knee Pain

This discomfort can occur for a myriad of reasons, including overuse, knee trauma, or degenerative conditions, leading to difficulty in walking, bending, and performing daily activities.

ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL Injuries

These injuries involve the ligaments around the knee, crucial for stability and movement. Tears or sprains can happen due to sudden movements or impacts, causing pain, swelling, and a feeling of instability in the knee.

Torn Meniscus

The meniscus acts as a cushion for your knee joint. A tear in this cartilage can cause pain, swelling, and limited motion in the knee, often requiring medical intervention for healing.

Calf Pain

Discomfort or soreness in the calf muscles can result from overuse, injury, or conditions like deep vein thrombosis, leading to pain and difficulty in leg movements.

Leg Pain

This can range from a dull ache to sharp stabs of pain, affecting any part of the leg. Causes vary widely, from muscle fatigue and cramps to more serious conditions such as blood clots or peripheral artery disease.

Ankle Pain

Often results from injuries like sprains or fractures but can also be caused by arthritis or gout, leading to discomfort and hindering mobility.

Foot Pain

This can be due to a variety of factors, including bunions, heel spurs, or plantar fasciitis, affecting the ability to walk comfortably and perform daily activities.

Hammer Toe

A deformity where the toe is bent at the middle joint, causing pain and discomfort, often exacerbated by tight footwear.

Plantar Fasciitis

Involves inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot, causing stabbing heel pain, especially in the morning.

Twisted Ankle

Commonly occurs when the ankle rolls, twists, or turns awkwardly, stretching or tearing ligaments and resulting in swelling, pain, and limited range of motion.

Morton’s Neuroma

A painful condition affecting the ball of the foot, usually between the third and fourth toes, caused by the thickening of tissue around one of the nerves leading to the toes.

Sprained Ankle

Involves the stretching or tearing of ligaments in the ankle, leading to pain, swelling, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected ankle.

Neuropathy

Refers to general damage or dysfunction of one or more nerves, resulting in numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness, usually in the hands and feet.

Peripheral Neuropathy

A specific type of neuropathy affecting the peripheral nerves, causing widespread numbness, weakness, and pain, typically in the hands and feet.

Raynaud's Disease

A condition that causes some areas of your body — such as your fingers and toes — to feel numb and cold in response to cold temperatures or stress.

Pregnancy

A natural condition that involves the growth of a fetus inside the woman’s uterus for about nine months, often accompanied by changes in the body, mood swings, and cravings.

Swollen Legs

Commonly experienced during pregnancy due to the increased pressure from the growing uterus on blood flow, leading to fluid accumulation and swelling in the legs.
