Spinal Correction

Our experts here at Luke Chiropractic and Sports Injury know just how much pain a misaligned spine can cause. Your spine is the hub of your nervous system. It attaches your brain to the rest of your body and is attached to the over 90,000 miles in your body. Having your spine even slightly misaligned can have a domino effect that causes a variety of negative effects on your health.

Signs of a Poorly Aligned Spine

There are numerous signs that your spine is misaligned, but it is also possible to need a spinal correction without experiencing any symptoms. Signs of a misaligned spine include, but are not limited to:

  • Low energy, tiredness, or fatigue
  • Poor posture
  • Sore/stiff neck or back
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Joint pain
  • Uneven leg length (you’ll notice that your shoes wear out at different rates.)
  • Muscle spasms in the back
  • Headaches
  • Numbness, tingling, or altered sensations

If you are experiencing any combination of these symptoms, it is highly recommended that you get a certified chiropractor to give you an adjustment.


There are many things that can cause spine misalignment, some of which are preventable, and some that regular chiropractic care can mitigate the risk of. These common causes include injuries caused by sports (which is one of our specialties), aging, poor sleeping habits, poor ergonomics (including shoe choice), weight, and lack of exercise.

Spinal Correction Treatments

Here at Luke Chiropractic and Sports Injury, our expert chiropractors offer a variety of spinal correction procedures to help you achieve and maintain a healthy spine. In addition to regular chiropractic care, we specialize in back injury treatment, neck injury treatment, lower back pain treatment, sports injury treatment, and knee injury treatment--correcting these other parts of the body will also have a positive effect on the spine. More specifically, we offer spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression therapy is a painless and non-surgical treatment to relieve neck pain, back pain, pinched nerve, herniated disc, bulging disc, numbness, disc injuries, sciatica, and tingling. Spinal Decompression Therapy gently stretches the spine apart so that the misaligned vertebrae can naturally move back into place. Additionally, we can also potentially supplement any of our treatment offerings with cold laser therapy, which helps accelerate healing at the cellular level and subsequently lowers inflammation.

If you do not seek treatment, a misaligned spine will typically not realign on its own, but you don’t have to live in pain and discomfort. If you live in the Honolulu, HI area, please give us a call at 808-591-2400 to schedule your appointment today.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "May says, Dr. Luke is the Best Chiropractor Doctor, I have gone to in all my life. Before seeing Dr. Luke, I used to receive massages and I took Advil daily. I had symptoms of lower back pain, headaches, and pain in my abdomen. Dr. Luke and his style of Chiropractic relieved my headaches and lower back pain; Chiropractic has made me feel much better since I started adjustments with Dr. Luke. Event the pain in my abdomen is gone. I never thought another Chiropractor would be beneficial but I found out that Dr. Luke is the Best that there is. He does make a huge difference and would recommend Dr. Luke to everyone. Thank You, Dr. Luke!"

  • "I am a professional landscaper constantly using my back and body my work is very physical. With severe back pain especially in my lower back area. I would tell anyone the importance of proper alignment, which leads to a good physical body. Your body needs correction and you must take the steps to correct your problem. Whoever hesitates to correct the body's misalignment will lead to malfunctioning and a crippled body. Dr. Luke adjusted my body to have correct alignment. I'm back to work and good to go. Mahalo, Dr. Luke!"

  • "Awesome!!! Helped both my husband and I. First it was my husband- his shoulder would lock up and was stiff and painful. 1st treatment with Cold Therapy/adjustments his shoulder unlocked!!! no more pain or stiffness.
    Then recently I injured my knee, I was on pain medicine and told by my doctor I would need surgery to fix this. I ended up in Dr. Luke's office and have already felt tremendous relief. I mustered up the courage and one day got my back and neck adjusted as well. OMG!!! I am truly enjoying my smooth turning neck and less lower back stiffness due to the adjustments, Don’t be scared just do it !!! And feel great.
    Both my husband n I continue our visits with Dr. Luke . We enjoy the easy going atmosphere . Dr.Luke will teach you how to care for your specific condition . Come and check it out !!! You will be amazed and most happy that you did.."
