How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Chiropractic care differs greatly from mainstream medicine. Mainstream medicine often addresses pain issues with prescription pain killers. Although this can be beneficial for short amounts of time, this is not a realistic solution for ongoing pain issues. Prescription painkillers often have addictive properties as well as harsh side effects.
Chiropractic care seeks to help the body heal from pain naturally. Pain is very often a result of inflammation or irritation of the nervous system. Finding ways to reduce inflammation and calm the nervous system can be very beneficial in pain relief.
A chiropractor will often start a treatment plan with a spinal adjustment. This can have a positive effect on the alignment of the spine, nervous response in the body, and inflammation. In addition to this, our chiropractor uses other types of therapy as well. Let’s look at a few of these therapies.
Hot/cold therapy can help the body reset pain signals and help relax overworked, or strained muscles. Moist heat pads are one-way heat therapy can be used to relieve pain in the back as well as other areas of the body. Heat pads are used to relax the muscles which can have an immediate pain-relieving result.
Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing. During an acupuncture session, very thin needles are inserted into the skin at certain trigger points. When these trigger points are activated, they help to calm the nervous system and redirect pain signals.
Massage therapy is a wonderful, all-natural therapy that can help to relieve pain caused by tension in the soft tissues. Not only does massage therapy help to relieve pain, but many patients also report that massage therapy is a great way to relieve stress as well. Stress can play a huge role in the body’s pain reaction and can also contribute to inflammation.
