Chronic pain affects nearly 50 million adults in the United States. Disability results in at least $80 billion in lost wages every year. Common chronic pain complaints include headaches, migraines, lower back pain, arthritis pain, and neck pain.
If you are struggling with chronic pain, chiropractic care can help significantly with pain management. Our chiropractors provide a wide array of treatment modalities to restore the body’s alignment, improve function, and help the body heal itself. We treat many conditions that affect the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Our team at Woodbury Family Chiropractic is specially trained to provide treatment to manage your pain without drugs or invasive measures such as surgery.
When you visit us for help with pain management, we will start by conducting a comprehensive examination and medical evaluation. From there, we will create a customized treatment plan to provide pain relief and support the healing process. Some of our all-natural methods for pain management include:
- Spinal manipulation and realignment: This treatment reduces pressure on your central nervous system, aids in pain management, and stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities.
- Soft tissue therapy: One of our chiropractors will work to relax and treat your tight and sore muscles. For example, we may use manual release therapy by stretching your muscles while applying pressure. We could incorporate trigger point therapy by applying pressure on the tensest area of the muscle.
- Exercise therapy: We may recommend simple exercises that can be done at home to help with your chronic pain.
- Massage therapy: We use massage therapy as a complement to our chiropractic care to relieve musculoskeletal pain and relax your muscles.
The results of chiropractic care when it comes to pain are often quick and long-lasting. According to a 2018 study by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), after six weeks of chiropractic treatments, 750 active-duty military personnel who complained of chronic back pain reported less pain intensity, more improvement in their ability to function, and less reliance on pain medication.
