Back and neck pain affects thousands of people across the United States every day. It can be cause by a variety of conditions, from degenerative disc disease to injuries resulting from a car accident. Traditional medical care for this kind of pain is often limited to surgical repair or frequent use of pain medications, which both can be undesirable for many patients due to cost or risk.
However, physical therapy and chiropractic care offer a natural, affordable, and simple solution for pain management. There are many forms of therapy that chiropractic care offers, and our patients report a significant reduction or elimination of pain when using one or a combination of the below therapies.
1. Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments are designed to correct subluxations or misalignments of the cervical and lumbar vertebrae in the spine. When the vertebrae in the spine are subluxated, it can put pressure on the spinal cord, nerves and surrounding tissues causing inflammation and severe discomfort. A quick adjustment by a chiropractor can bring the vertebrae back to their correct positions, thereby reducing discomfort and activating the body's natural healing mechanisms.
2. Deep Tissue Massage
Many people consider massage a luxury, but the truth is that it can be exceptionally effective at relieving pain, especially when combined with chiropractic adjustments. Deep tissue massage targets the muscles deep inside the body that are inflamed or have developed spasms, and works to release them.
3. Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is used to correct poor posture, heal injuries from accidents, and alleviate the painful side effects of conditions related to aging. Our experienced physical therapist will guide you through exercises designed to treat your pain and allow you to enjoy greater mobility and flexibility.
4. Ultrasound Therapy
Ultrasound therapy involves the use of low heat sound waves that penetrate deep into the tissues of the body, including the bones and cartilage of painful joints. Ultrasound therapy is completely painless, affordable, and an excellent complement to other chiropractic pain management methods.
5. DRS Protocol
The DRS Protocol offered at Pain Care Associates is designed to treat back pain, specifically herniated and compressed discs. Using spinal decompression, adjustments, and exercises, DRS Protocol is a safe way to bring about spinal alignment, and in turn a drastic reduction in back pain.
