Chiropractic Treatment and Pain Management
If you require chiropractic treatment, you will be able to access this service easily and quickly at Premier Pain & Spine. Chiropractic treatment has been found to be useful in alleviating many different health-related problems. It is noninvasive, natural, and gentle, and focused on opening up the body’s natural healing channels, allowing internal mechanisms to communicate and work towards alleviating pain, reducing inflammation, and allowing the curative process to begin.
Chiropractic, which focuses on making sure that the body is in balance and properly functioning, may be used to treat a long list of ailments and conditions. Before a chiropractor begins to treat you, they will:
• Take a full medical history
• Review your diet
• Evaluate environmental issues
• Consider workplace conditions
• Weigh lifestyle choices
• Discuss your habits
• Perform a full medical examination
• Possibly order imaging services
Your chiropractor, taking a holistic approach, will consider information related to all of the factors above in relationship to your symptoms in order to determine the possible causes of your injury or condition. Once casual factors have been determined and a diagnosis made, treatment may begin.
Pain in the lower back can be difficult to pinpoint and the cause can often be tough to diagnose. The complex system of nerves that radiate down the vertebrae and throughout the body can send mixed messages to the patient.
As an example, a patient may be suffering with sciatica and believe that the source of the pain is along the inflamed nerve channel when it is really in the lower back. Or another patient may be suffering with pain in the lower back but they have no idea why. It may be as simple as how they are sitting, the position in which they sleep or a lack of support in an often used chair and/or their mattress.
Conditions treated through chiropractic include:
• Back problems, including herniated discs
• Chronic headaches, including migraines
• Joint disorders
• Muscle problems
• Situations causing sciatica
• Sports injuries
• Stress fractures
How Chiropractic Works
Because chiropractic treatment is both noninvasive and it works by activating the body’s ability to heal itself, it is entirely safe. Through gentle manipulation, chiropractic techniques relieve pressure on muscles and joints, increase blood flow and stimulate communication between the mind and the injured area. This results in thorough and quick healing for many.
Along with getting fast, natural relief from pain, sufferers see steady progress towards total healing. How quickly this occurs depends partly on the type and severity of the injury. Plus, some patients can benefit from combining chiropractic treatment with other therapies.
Physical therapy can often help someone undergoing chiropractic treatments heal even more quickly. Expert supervision and the utilization of numerous rehab methods also provides for more thorough healing, as the injured area is strengthened and made more flexible. Having these services under the same roof makes coordination between the chiropractic and rehab services seamless, saving patients time in the process.
