Chiropractic adjustments are an important part of our pain management solution. Many patients have one or more subluxations in their spine. These misalignments continually irritate the nervous system, creating blockages and compression that triggers back pain, neck pain and headaches. For example, a car accident injury such as whiplash may cause a misalignment of the cervical spine. As long as the neck remains out of alignment, patients will continually struggle with neck pain and/or headaches. Regular adjustments help maintain proper alignment, manage a patient’s pain without the need for medication.
Adjustments, manual therapy and massage are also effective for treating chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia. While we cannot cure these conditions, Apollo Health doctors can create a pain management plan that will reduce or eliminate the need for medication. Manual therapy, including myofascial release, targets muscle tissue deep within the body. This helps reduce swelling and inflammation that triggers chronic pain. Many of our patients who suffer from constant aches and pains report a significant improvement after just one treatment. Regular treatments can significantly improve overall health and enhance mobility.
Our whole body approach to care not only manages chronic pain, but can also reduce the risk for future injury and illness. By restoring balance to the body, Apollo Health doctors will help support your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Our approach to managing pain helps patients feel their best each and every day.
Those who suffer from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, radiating arm/leg pain, or any number of pain conditions are all possible candidates for spinal decompression therapy and should be evaluated.
