We live in a beautiful state here in Anchorage, Alaska that spoils us with an abundance of activities to do in the summer months, winter months and everything in between. When you are pushing your body as hard as many of us do here in Alaska, you will often find the need for restorative treatment through chiropractic care and massage therapy. At Parliament Chiropractic, we strongly believe that these physical discomforts should not hinder you from doing the activities you love and enjoy. Our goal is to never limit you from doing the activities that you love, but rather focus on a plan to return you to them as quickly as possible.

Common Conditions Treated

Parliament Chiropractic will treat various types of injuries and recognize the causes and unique circumstances causing the injuries to get to the root of the problem. Certain types of injuries such as vehicle accidents often time involve symptoms that surface weeks or even months after the fact. Injuries in the work environment involve us looking at the patients work environment and address things such as workstation setup, correct ergonomics, and proper work techniques appropriate for your work industry. In sports related injuries we focus our attention to biomechanical and muscle imbalances to formulate a plan that works for you. Treating your whole body and ensuring optimal recovery and health is what we strive for, and what chiropractic care is all about.

While Chiropractors can treat hundreds of very specific conditions, the ones listed below are the most common conditions where patients seek relief using chiropractic treatment.

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the body undergoes various physiological changes as well as hormonal changes designed to prepare the body for the development of the baby. These changes, along with the development and growth of the baby, can cause a misaligned spine or joints from a protruding abdomen, increased back curve, pelvic changes, and adaptations to your posture to support the extra weight of the baby. Parliament Chiropractic can help ease the stress your body will undergo during your pregnancy. We will help ensure that you maintain a healthy pregnancy and help you adjust to the different changes your body is undergoing without the need of prescription pain relievers and other medicines. Other benefits we can provide you during this time include:

  • Pelvic balance and alignment
  • Controlling symptoms of nausea
  • Reducing the time of labor and delivery
  • Relieving back, neck or joint pain
  • Prevent a potential cesarean delivery
  • Maintaining a healthier pregnancy1
Pain

Sometimes there is no obvious cause to a pain symptom, and you may be living with something that you feel is a normal part of your everyday life. Have our professionals take a look and diagnose you, we can get to the root of the problem to help set your body right and return you to your way of life – pain free.

Age

Aging is a natural process, but as you begin to reach the later years in life, many physical issues could arise. Parliament Chiropractic understand this and has the knowledge and expertise to help you adjust and guide you to simple, but helpful new lifestyle changes to eliminate any problems preventing you from living life to the fullest. The chiropractic benefits we can provide you at Parliament Chiropractic include:

  • Easing pain

…And if you are Healthy

Remember, health is a journey, not a destination. Have you ever had a personal trainer tell you that since now you are in shape it is time to stop exercising? No. That’s because it is better for you to continue the healthy habit. Just like eating right, taking vitamins and exercising, chiropractic care is a healthy habit that is worth keeping for the long term.

At Parliament Chiropractic, you always have a friend invested in your health who cares about your well-being. Whether you are in pain or not, you owe it to yourself to get a checkup and ensure that you can keep running at 110% for years to come.
