Are you suffering from chronic pain in your back or neck and cannot get relief? Being in constant pain puts tremendous stress on an individual and can have negative impacts in all facets of life. Minimizing or eliminating your pain via the proper pain relief treatments is the first step toward getting your life back.
A growing number of people are seeking alternative treatment methods for dealing with their chronic pain because conventional therapies are not helping them. Chiropractic care can often provide pain relief when traditional treatments have failed.
Chiropractic Approach to Pain Relief
Chiropractic is a type of health care that focuses on treating the bodily structure and spine that affects the entire body as a whole. The goal is to offer pain relief and improved function through various types of manipulations. Although spinal manipulation is a main focus of chiropractic care, other treatments are part of this system as well.
Spinal manipulation refers to therapeutic spinal movements, as well as the application of pressure along the spine and its vertebrae. When the chiropractic professional places pressure there, he or she is moving the joint beyond its usual range of motion. This can be quite effective in pain relief treatments.
Types of Pain
Pain management focuses upon two general types of pain: chronic pain and intractable pain. Intractable pain means that the patient is in severe, constant pain that consumes their life. It is typically treated with powerful pain relievers rather than chiropractic care.
Chronic pain refers to pain that is ongoing and persisting beyond an expected duration without responding to traditional pain relief methods. Chiropractic experts are able to effectively treat chronic pain using non-surgical methods like spinal manipulation to relieve symptoms of pain like muscle tension and inflammation.
