At Caring Touch Pain Relief Center, our chiropractic care team believes that simply treating the symptoms of pain is a shortsighted approach to back pain and neck pain relief. While medication can help minimize pain symptoms, once drugs wear off, pain will return. Consequently, our patients are left struggling with chronic back and neck pain. Many fear they will become dependent on medication to manage their pain or worry that risky, invasive surgery is the only alternative. Thanks to chiropractic care and functional medicine, our chiropractors help patients find an alternative path towards pain relief and wellness.
Many cases of back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and other chronic pain conditions can be traced directly to a spinal misalignment. When the spine is misaligned, a slipped or herniated disc may compress nearby nerves, triggering a radiating pain sensation. For example, if a herniated disc in the lumbar spine compresses the sciatic nerve, individuals may experience a radiating pain sensation in the lower back, buttocks and legs. Identifying the underlying cause for pain, such as a herniated or compressed disc, is essential to effective pain relief.
As part of our approach to pain relief, our chiropractor will conduct a detailed, full-body health assessment, including diagnostic tests, to identify the precise location of any spinal subluxations. Once the location of spinal misalignment is identified, our chiropractor will create a custom treatment program to restore proper alignment to the spine and safely manage a patient’s pain. Chiropractic adjustments are a gentle, effective way to relieve pain that support natural healing and whole body health.
Functional medicine is an effective pain relief alternative to drugs and surgery. Functional medicine, like chiropractic care, addresses the root causes for disease, pain and poor health. Using a systems-oriented approach, our chiropractors engage closely with patients to understand their histories and how genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors are affecting pain and chronic disease. We focus on patient-centered care that integrates the best medical practices, including alternative therapies focused on diet, exercise, and nutrition. We consistently find that this whole body approach to pain management delivers the best results for our patients.
If you are suffering from chronic neck or back pain, natural healing and drug-free pain relief is possible. Functional medicine integrates chiropractic care with the best holistic therapies to support your body’s health from the inside out. You do not need to settle for a life compromised by pain. It is possible to safely manage pain without the need for medication and once again enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle.
