The Role of Chiropractic Care and Chronic Pain

Chiropractors are your partners in health throughout your entire lifetime. They will work with you to get to the root cause of your pain and provide a customized care plan that will help reach your short and long term goals. Some of the ways chiropractic care can empower you to overcome pain include: 

Chiropractic Adjustment for Chronic Pain 

Your chiropractor will use a gentle thrusting technique to restore movement to the spine and the restricted joints that may be causing pain. This will realign the vertebrae, stimulate the nervous system, stretch soft tissues, and reduce inflammation, muscle tension, and pain.

Education About Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is often caused by heightened sensitivity in the brain, not an actual injury. By educating patients on the reasons behind their pain, chiropractors can lessen a patient’s fear and apprehension as they begin to understand that the pain is just a sensation, and not something that’s actually harming their bodies.

Exercise for Chronic Pain

Exercise is proven to decrease inflammation, increase mobility, mobilize nervous tissue, and reduce pain sensitivity by up to 60%. But misalignments in your body can often make exercise difficult. Your chiropractor will find and adjust any misalignments in your musculoskeletal system to keep you moving pain free.

Manual Therapy for Chronic Pain

Chiropractors are board certified, musculoskeletal experts with specialty training and skills. Based on your needs, services may include:

Working Together to Help You Overcome Chronic Pain
