Chiropractic and Chronic Pain

According to the NIH, chronic pain affects an estimated 8% of all Americans. Often with long-term  implications.

This solution is worked through X-rays, MRI’s and frequent lab work. A trip to the family physician usually results in a prescription for a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory to ease any pain.

Depending on the level of severity, other treatment may include complex orthopedic surgery, electrical implants or medication pumps. These can be invasive and include the risk of further compromising a person’s quality of life.

By contrast, chiropractic care is much safer and often more efficient than the medical model.  Chiropractic has a unique focus on spinal adjustments and the treatment of the adjacent tissues.

The term “subluxation” is unique to the chiropractic profession and involves the repositioning of the bone or joint into its proper place. Such a procedure not only restores proper range of motion but can also reduce swelling and inflammation to ease any pain.

According to the NIH, chiropractic has been shown to be the most effective treatment available for neck and low back injuries when compared to other modalities.

Chiropractic care is an effective strategy in today’s health care and is generally covered by most insurance plans.

In addition to using chiropractic, other forms of complementary medicine such as massage and acupuncture have also been shown to be very effective.
