Herniated/Slipped Disc

A herniated disc occurs when a rubbery cushion in between the vertebrae has a tear, and the contents begin to push through the tear. When the contents spill out, it has the potential to irritate the soft tissue and nerves around the spine. In some cases, the herniated disc will cause numbness, tingling or weakness in your arm or leg. Age plays a role in developing this condition and so does certain repetitive motions. Lifting a great deal of weight places a great deal of strain on the lower back, which could cause a herniated disc. A herniated disc is oftentimes referred to as a slipped disc.

Bulging Disc

When the outer portion of the disc weakens, the internal pressure of the disc stretches it, which causes swelling. In many cases, you might not have any symptoms. Others experience pain, discomfort or numbness or weakness in your arm or leg, specifically if the bulge compresses or irritates a nerve. You might develop a bulging disc as a result of age since the external portion of the disc will change with age. It's also possible a bulging disc arises as a result of an injury. Lifting a heavy option, especially improperly, could lead to a bulging disc. 

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease describes the changes that occur to discs in between the vertebrae. These changes tend to worsen over time. People who have degenerative disc disease may not have symptoms at all while others may experience pain or discomfort. In some cases, the pain is severe enough to interfere with daily activities. 


Sciatica describes pain that runs along the sciatic nerve. You might have tingling or numbness that starts in your lower back and extends down each leg and possibly even to your toes. In a majority of cases, you'll have sciatica on only one side of your body. Sciatica stems from pregnancy, herniated discs, spinal stenosis or bone spurs, just to name a few causes.  

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis refers to narrowing of the space around your spine. This condition can place pressure on the nerves in the spine. Most commonly, it affects the lower back and neck. While some people don't have any symptoms of spinal stenosis, others have numbness, tingling, muscle weakness or pain. These symptoms may worsen over time. Spinal stenosis typically occurs as a result of wear and tear from osteoarthritis.  


Whiplash is an injury to the neck caused by the neck being abruptly and rapidly propelled forward and then backward. The joints, cervical muscles, discs, ligaments, nerves, and discs may be affected. Symptoms may take 24 hours or longer to arise. Those who have whiplash may have headaches, neck pain, stiffness, pain in the shoulder, numbness or dizziness. It's possible you'll become irritable, experience sleep disturbances or suffer from fatigue. It's possible you'll have difficulty remember or concentrating.

Personal Injuries

You could develop muscle or skeletal problems as a result of a fall, sports-related injury or another personal injury. Injuries after a car accident could cause a wide range of problems that our chiropractor can treat. If you overwork the muscles, you could injure the soft tissue.

  • "I came to this office a year ago with debilitating hip problems. I was so missed up it took about 6 months to get it to hold. After my first appointment, I no longer was needing pain medication. The most amazing part about this office is that Dr. Dave and Dr. Mike really take the time to know what was happening in my body. They recommend much needed supplements that helped in me get my life back. I could not function before I started coming here and will always be grateful for their knowledge and expertise in their field. THANK YOU GATEWAY.

  • "Our Infant, Merrick, was placed with ear infection, congestion, and cough. Antibiotics were not helping and made things worse. He began vomiting. We were all exhausted & frustrated. We couldn't find anything that worked! We brought him to Gateway Chiropractic in Loveland. With steady treatments his ear infection and other symptoms went away. He is healthy and now growing without ear infection complications. This was a blessing for our baby and our family! We are so grateful!"
    C. Muth - Loveland, CO
  • "After a thorough and thoughtful review of the x-rays of my back and hips, Dr. Hughes adjusted me from my head to my knees. Yep, my knees! I was able to kneel down on the floor with my kids for the first time in years with no stiffness or achy knees. During the adjustment I felt unhurried and relaxed. I left with more range of motion in my neck, shoulders... & knees. Thank you! I recommend Dr. Hughes as a qualified and caring chiropractor!"
    Richard T. - Loveland, CO
  • "The staff is amazing. The practitioners were more than happy to try and treat my severe neck pain and limited range of motion. I could hardly move my head and upper back 2 weeks ago. After a series of x-rays to I.D. the problem, some other quantitative testing, both chiropractors were able to treat my PROBLEM in addition to diminishing my SYMPTOMS. After 2 weeks, I have full range, hardly any pain, slept better and more energy. I would HIGHLY recommend beginning ANY un-wellness at this clinic prior to MD approach to medication. THANKS FOR MAKING ME BETTER!"

  • "Drs' Mike and David are competent, concerned, and caring chiropractors. I am impressed with the tables they use to administer adjustments. The dropping mechanism makes the adjustment so focused and exact. I feel less pain and have more flexibility and range of motion now than before I began my treatments."
    Diane L. - Berthoud, CO
  • "I have severe arthritis. The pain getting worse & I thought I might need to have a hip replacement. Even after the first adjustment my hip felt better and I could finally sleep all night without waking in pain. Now I have almost no pain most nights and I am walking without limping. I am now doing yoga and Zumba, two activities I ahd stayed away from because my hip pain just wouldn't allow it! I had never gone to a Chiropractor before, now I don't think I will ever stop!"
