Chiropractic Care Treats Sources of Back Pain and Neck Pain to Improve Spinal Health
Millions of people live with back and neck pain every day -- often masking the symptoms with pain medications and anti-inflammatory drugs. However, these treatments do nothing to address to underlying injuries and health conditions that cause chronic pain. Here at Chiropractic Natural Care Center, we believe in treating symptoms using a whole-body approach. If neck and back pain bring you into our office, we want you to leave in greater control of your musculoskeletal health than before.
When patients report having back pain or neck pain, we usually conduct a thorough examination to determine the source of the symptoms. We then create a customized chiropractic care plan designed to alleviate pain, correct the problem and prevent the pain from returning again in the future. Our chiropractic care involves hands-on adjustments of the spine or neck to promote healthy alignment of the vertebrae and discs. With time, these adjustments can alleviate pressure on the nerve pathways in the spine that can cause headaches, pain, numbness and tingling.
Our Lauderhill chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle changes that could improve painful symptoms. For example, if a posture screening and analysis shows that your natural posture is placing strain on your back or neck, we may recommend postural changes. We also offer nutritional counseling for overweight or obese patients who are having chronic pain connected to carrying excess body weight. By developing a more active lifestyle and improved eating habits, our patients often find that the pain that once affected the spine, neck and shoulders subsides once a healthy body weight is attained.
Alternative Methods of Healing Include Massage Therapy and Acupuncture
In addition to using chiropractic adjustments to treat back and neck pain, our office also uses supplementary therapies to alleviate uncomfortable symptoms and also amplify the benefits of chiropractic treatments. Massage therapy, for example, is not only for day spas and luxury treatments, but in fact can be a useful tool for relieving neck and back pain.
Toxins can build in the muscles, which can make them tense and stiff. Massage therapy can release those toxins and tension, resulting in less pain. Furthermore, muscles that are relaxed following a massage therapy session provide less resistance to chiropractic adjustments, making treatments even more effective.
In addition to massage, we also offer acupuncture as a means of coping with neck and back pain. Acupuncture works by using very small needles to stimulate pressure points throughout the body. Those pressure points trigger reactions within the nervous system that can result in significant pain relief.
