Those who face any type of chronic pain are always looking for a mix of tools in their toolbox to live a life filled with less pain and more relief. While medications and surgical options may be necessary, many patients look to incorporate any types of natural pain relief as well. Chiropractic care falls into a natural pain relief category and is an important component of treating certain conditions and injuries through hands-on manipulation.
Here we highlight some of the top reasons to put more natural options into your treatment plan.
Fewer pills: Patients who seek a variety of ways to ease their chronic pain can often reduce their reliance on medication, particularly opioid pain relievers. Chiropractic care can create a better path toward better days that are healthier.
Help for osteoarthritis symptoms: Pain from osteoarthritis, which is the most common type of arthritis when joint cartilage begins to break down, can be reduced by hands-on manipulation. Chiropractic adjustments can change how bones align and may curb how much the bones rub together and prompt pain related to the condition.
Easing tension: Continuous headaches, particularly tension headaches, can be treated by a chiropractor. Tension headaches are a type of headache that can be mild to moderate pain that is felt around the top of your head and can feel like a tightness as well. Triggers can be stress, poor posture or lack of sleep. Our doctor can use spinal manipulation to help realign your spine and joints in your neck. This can lead to inflammation reduction and prompt better circulation.
Stand tall: Spinal manipulation may also lead to better posture, particularly if it is caused by too much sitting. Treatment can help you stand taller while also relieving neck and back pain.
Get back in the game: Pain can definitely hamper an athlete’s performance. Chiropractic care can help boost joint mobility, reduce pain and alleviate tissue restrictions. A healthier body and less pain can help any athlete be better.
Happy and healthy: A better mental attitude and feeling satisfied are linked to feeling good physically. When pain is part of your life, it can really inhibit your ability to embrace every day and do everything that you want to do. Our treatments may be just what you need for better physical and mental health.
