We help clients to feel better by offering pain management solutions. The question about how to best control and manage pain is one that has become increasingly discussed. As more news articles, stories and documentaries are being presented about the danger of opioid addictions and how easy it is to become addicted, more and more people are looking for alternative options to prevent and manage their pain.
As a chiropractor, we believe this is incredibly important because our focus is on helping the body to be healthy, rather than simply reducing symptoms, pain being one of them. With that in mind, the patient should be aware that our approach is a natural one. We do not prescribe medication for patients to take but instead, offer natural treatments that can help them to feel better.
Keeping regular appointments is important
An important aspect of managing pain is visiting our office regularly enough to have ongoing treatment. We have found that we were able to prevent severe back, shoulder and neck pain, for example, by seeing patients on a regular basis. Some patients may need to visit our office weekly but this is entirely worth it to prevent severe pain and the need to take prescription pain medication.
Our belief is that it is better to stay ahead of the pain so very often, patients will visit us for these regular appointments before they experience any discomfort at all. This, of course, is once the pain has gotten out-of-control. By coming regularly, it may be possible to not experience any discomfort at all but simply to stay on top of or ahead of it.
In our office, we are focused on improving the health of the musculoskeletal system and all areas of the body that are impacted by it. Since the spine is the body's superhighway with nerves running through it, virtually all areas of the body can be impacted by the spine being out of alignment. If just one vertebra is out of the correct position or one nerve is pinched, it can cause discomfort and a variety of health problems. By adjusting the spine and bringing it back into alignment, we can treat many of these conditions and also prevent pain.
For pain management, we may recommend a variety of complementary solutions as well. For example, some patients may benefit from decompression to create room in between the vertebrae after suffering from a herniated disc.
Another complementary treatment is physical therapy and massage. Both are ways to reduce tension and discomfort. Additionally, physical therapy can strengthen the body to prevent the issue that initially led to the pain.
Chiropractic care can also complement what is being done by other physicians. We regularly work in tandem with them to ensure that our patients receive comprehensive care.
