At Turquoise Trail Therapeutics, we’ve helped and educated numerous patients and have seen the benefits of chiropractic care and therapeutic massage firsthand. Using our holistic approach to your wellness, you receive safe, non-invasive, natural treatments that effectively heal the body. 

Our Santa Fe chiropractic clinic works with those of all ages, abilities, and pain severities. We understand how the body works and how it is meant to support you.

Whether your goal is to run a marathon, climb a mountain, hike a trail, ski that double black diamond, or sit comfortably at your desk while you work, our solutions are here to help. 

Let’s get your quality of life back with safe, comprehensive chiropractic care. 

Common Conditions Treated at Turquoise Trail Therapeutic 

back pain

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain and Low Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons our patients visit us. The spine is made up of intricate vertebrae that start in the neck (called the cervical spine) and run through the back to the pelvis. There is a delicate balance between mobility and stability of the spine, which is the foundation upon which we are built. Since we use our backs continuously this balance is at risk of being disrupted. 

Because the spine supports almost every movement we make, it’s important to visit a chiropractor when it becomes damaged, painful, or otherwise distressed. We have proven techniques that help heal the spine and find balance. 

Back pain may be caused by: 

  • Disc herniations
  • Back sprains and strains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Sciatica 
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolysis
Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain

Neck pain is becoming a significant problem with many patients due to the overuse of devices. Posture plays a big role in neck safety and health so learning how to best sit while working or on your device will help keep neck pain and loss of motion at bay. 


Our team has experience helping patients with the following types of neck pain:

  • Whiplash
  • Pulled muscles
  • Neck pain due to poor posture
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Joint sprains
  • Degenerative disc disease


If you suffer from neck pain, our chiropractic services will find the cause and give you working solutions. We’ll also provide you with preventative care so your neck stays strong and you can maintain its health. Using in-office treatments, take-home exercises, and stretches, we’ll find a protocol you feel comfortable with. 

Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain

When our shoulders lose mobility, completing even insignificant tasks can be unbearable or impossible. Everything from turning your head to sneezing can be affected, making everyday activities like driving your car difficult and unsafe. In many cases, an untreated shoulder injury will spread to your neck and back. 


The shoulder joint is the most dynamic joint in the human body. Due to its vast range of motion, it can also be very unstable and vulnerable to injury. 

Here are some conditions we’ve treated:

  • Rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Shoulder arthritis
  • Bicep tendinitis
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder instability


Shoulder pain can present as either a sharp, stabbing pain or as a deep, dull ache. Repetitive use with poor biomechanics and instability causes wear and tear on the connective tissue of the shoulder. Weightlifting, tennis, swimming, and even mousing on the computer can irritate the muscle, tendon, ligaments, and bursa in the shoulder joint. If these faulty movement patterns go on unchecked, arthritis will begin to form inside the joint itself.

We’ll determine the root of your symptoms and take a unique approach to get you fast, effective results.

ankle pain

Chiropractic Care for Ankle Pain

Many of our active patients seek our guidance through ankle pain. Ankle pain is a common sports injury due to repetitive use, overuse, and chronic injury. 

The ankle joint allows us to walk and move our feet in a variety of ways. Sometimes the muscles around the ankle become imbalanced or weak, predisposing us to injury. Previous ankle sprains can also compromise the integrity of the ligaments around the ankle making it unstable. 

There are many conditions that can cause ankle pain. Your sports chiropractor at Turquoise Trail Therapeutics has successfully treated some of the more common ankle injuries listed below:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Shin splints
  • Peroneal tendonitis
  • Posterior Tibialis Tendonitis
  • Ankle instability
  • Cuboid syndrome 
  • Osteoarthritis
Chiropractic Care for Elbow Pain

Chiropractic Care for Elbow Pain

Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are common terms used to describe a specific type of tendinitis that affects the outer aspect of the elbow. The most common cause of this tendonitis is repetitive movements that occur at both the wrist and elbow. 

Some causes include:

  • Any racquet sport (tennis, badminton, pickleball, squash, racquetball)
  • Excessive mousing on a computer
  • Screwdriver
  • Weightlifting
  • Mountain biking


The muscles that extend the wrist (cock the wrist backward), form one mass of tendinous tissue that attaches at the elbow. This tissue is very thick and dense, without good circulation. Therefore, when a minor injury occurs it’s hard to heal without some intervention. The expert sports chiropractor at Turquoise Trail Therapeutics routinely sees patients with tennis elbow and golfers elbow, helping those patients get out of pain fast.

Chiropractic Care for Wrist and Hand Pain

Chiropractic Care for Wrist and Hand Pain

We ask a lot of our wrist and hand throughout the day. The active and athletic person uses their hand in a variety of ways, whether it be typing, scrolling, driving, paddling, gripping, twisting, or swinging. Wrist pain and hand pain can be the result of trauma or repetitive use. Our sports chiropractor has successfully treated patients with various types of wrist and hand pain. 

Some examples are:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Arthritis
  • Fractured, sprained, or dislocated fingers
  • Tendinitis
  • Trigger fingers


There are many options for treating wrist and hand pain. At T3, we believe in taking a more conservative approach. In many cases, the solution is simple, non-invasive, and will always address the root cause of the condition.

Chiropractic Care for Headaches

Chiropractic Care for Headaches

Headaches are no fun and can be quite debilitating. Our Santa Fe chiropractors have successfully helped hundreds of people get relief from their headaches. Car accidents, poor posture, childhood trauma, and muscle tension can all be contributing factors to headaches. These biomechanical stressors overload the muscles and joints in the neck creating imbalance and pain.

During a patient’s initial exam your chiropractor will perform a posture analysis and feel for muscular tightness and asymmetry in ranges of motion.

Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain

Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain 

The knee joint is a hinge joint that is crucial in our locomotion and athletics and carries a lot of weight. When sore or injured, it can hamper our movement. The knee is a weight-bearing joint and has high demand placed upon each step. Fortunately, knee pain is often caused by muscular imbalances in the muscles around the knee and is easily treatable with non-invasive techniques.  

Our Santa Fe sports chiropractor will provide a thorough assessment of your knee. We have helped hundreds of patients with knee pain conditions such as:

  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Meniscus tears
  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease
  • Knee ligament injuries
  • Knee tendinitis
  • Knee bursitis
Chiropractic Care for Hip Pain

Chiropractic Care for Hip Pain

The hip joint is the largest joint in the human body. Structurally it is considered a ball and socket joint and is designed to withstand significant weight-bearing loads over our lifetimes. As you can imagine, with so much demand and repetitive use the structures of the hip can develop issues. 

Some of the hip-related conditions we successfully treat at Turquoise Trail Therapeutics include:

  • Hip muscle strains

My care under Dr. Casey at Turquoise Trail Therapeutics has put me on the road to recovery from debilitating hip pain. With just a few visits Dr. Casey gave me a plan of care that included adjustments, myofascial release and exercises to take home to improve hip and core strength. It was amazing!

-K. Thompson // Santa Fe, NM

Dr. Casey is incredible! 

I had been having debilitating back pain and numbness/tingling in my left leg for 5 weeks before I saw Dr. Casey. He was my last hope. I had seen other chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and an assortment of other specialists. From the start Dr. Casey was different. He spent a full 40 minutes with me to make sure he understood the problems I was having. It was clear he cared and wanted to take a thoughtful and personalized approach to my treatment and care. His treatment plan is exactly what I needed, within four session my back pain and the numbness/tingling in my leg are gone. I highly recommend Dr. Casey, I won’t be going anywhere else.
