Developing pain from an accident, medical treatment or even lifting an object without the proper form complicates your ability to enjoy your lifestyle and activities. Pain interferes with your focus and complicates your ability to move comfortably. At Simmons Specific Chiropractic, we recognize the challenges associated with chronic or consistent pain and offer solutions to assist with recovery and healing.
Types of Pain a Chiropractor Treats
A chiropractor offers a variety of alternative and non-invasive treatment for pain relief. At our clinic, we recognize the problems associated with regular pain. That is why we treat a variety of problems that may interfere with your lifestyle.
Common types of pain a chiropractor addresses include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Sports injuries, like tennis elbow or pain in your knees
- Sprains and strains
- Headaches and migraines
- Injuries from auto accidents
- Sciatic nerve pain
- General pain without obvious causes
A chiropractic professional recognizes the underlying causes of your pain and provides realistic solutions to improve your mobility, flexibility and situation. We evaluate your situation before providing any treatment or care based on your goals and plans.
How Chiropractic Care Works
The way chiropractic care works for pain relief ultimately depends on the underlying cause of your discomfort. At our clinic, we use appropriate diagnostic tools to determine the severity of your injuries or the underlying cause of your pain. When the pain stems from an auto accident, sports injury or a personal injury in any type of accident, we may use an x-ray to check for problems like cracked and broken bones.
After identifying the cause of your pain, we provide a realistic treatment plan to address the problem. We may use chiropractic adjustments or realignments to improve the function of your back and spine. We also use decompression therapy to reduce pressure along specific points in your back that may contribute to your pain.
Since back pain and neck pain may also stem from injuries to the muscles, we use massage therapy to help reduce tension and alleviate pain from pulled or strained muscles. Our team also works on improving your posture to reduce the discomfort you feel from poor posture.
Treatments We Offer
Our treatments ultimately depend on your specific needs and goals. Generally, we use adjustments, realignments and decompression therapy to improve the function of your spine. We also use massage therapy to alleviate pain in the muscles and recommend certain stretches or exercises to help your body heal after an accident.
We may recommend lifestyle changes or dietary changes to encourage your body’s healing processes; however, the specific details of any treatment plan depend on your needs. We develop a personalized plan for each individual after identifying the reasons for his or her discomfort.
Pain relief starts with identifying the cause and focusing on a long-term treatment plan. At our clinic, we focus on natural treatment strategies to help your body heal and recover. To learn more about our treatment plans, contact us today.
