Patients visit our chiropractic office for any number of reasons, but one of the most common patient issues is for pain relief, particularly for the back. It is a fact that pain of all types – even those nagging headaches and joint discomfort – can resonate from problems in the spinal region.
For this reason, our patients find the chiropractic services we provide is a great, natural solution for pain relief, even if you are seeing a doctor or if your doctor hasn’t been able to ease your pain. A recent survey conducted by Consumer Reports found that 58% of all people who receive chiropractic care for pain assert that they experience “a lot” of relief from their treatments and 46% also found physical therapy was rated among the most helpful treatments by those surveyed. So, just how does chiropractic care work such wonders? Here are a few of the ways we chiropractors can relieve pain:
Multifaceted approach to wellness. As chiropractors we do not prescribe medications. Instead, we advise patients on diet and nutrition, as well as exercise and fitness, in order to promote a well-balanced approach to the treatment of pain and other health conditions. For example, a we can tell you which vitamins and supplements will best support the recovery of your specific cause of pain.
Vertebral alignment. This is the standard treatment you will receive any time you go in for a session. Many types of pain are caused by misaligned vertebrae, as well as swelling caused by illness and injury. When our chiropractor aligns your spinal column, it frees up the space in between your discs, allowing nerves the ability to communicate with the nervous system more effectively so that they stop sending pain signals.
Deep tissue massage. We offer deep tissue massage. This treatment can greatly relieve pain caused by stress, muscle tension, and inflexibility.
As you can see, at Scotchtown Chiropractics and Physical Therapy we do much more than bend, twist, and pop your back into place. Our chiropractic care encompasses a variety of treatment techniques, and can effectively treat pain of any type – even pain having nothing to do with the back.
