It may feel like a quick and easy fix to reach for the nearest pain medication to ease chronic or acute pain. While pain medications have their place in helping relieve some aches and pains, they are only touching the surface of your pain, not the root cause.
Chiropractic care is a pain management option that gets to the root cause of pain, uses no medication, and is safe for individuals of all ages to receive. Chiropractic techniques are built on the foundation of anatomical alignment and safety. Individuals who experience pain, whether on a consistent basis or from a one-off occurrence of injury, will benefit significantly from chiropractic care.
Some common conditions that can be treated with chiropractic care are:
- Herniated Discs
- Work injuries, including strains or sprains from lifting heavy objects
- Back pain
- Car accident injuries
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Pinched nerve
Many chronic and acute pain conditions are derived from inflammation in the injured area and misalignment with the body. A chiropractor will utilize body manipulation to help ease inflammation, bring the body back into proper alignment, and alleviate pinched nerves.
