Pain Relief Q & A

by Dr. Lawrence Clayman

How Do Chiropractors Provide Pain Relief for Patients?

A chiropractor is able to provide pain relief effectively without using traditional methods. These traditional methods include pain medication and surgery. Chiropractic practice follows that pain can be treated using spinal manipulation. Through spinal adjustments, muscle tension and inflammation can be reduced, which can help reduce pain in those areas. For example, if you are suffering from migraine headaches caused by tension in your neck, you can seek chiropractic care to relieve the tension from your muscles. This will decrease the frequency or degree of migraines you are suffering from, and therefore you are in less pain. Chiropractic care gets to the spinal base of your pain.

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment and How Does This Help With Pain Relief?

During your first chiropractic adjustment, you may be a bit nervous or tense. That’s normal, but you can prepare in advance and know what to expect to ease your fears. A chiropractic adjustment at the Roxbury Spine and Wellness Clinic involves hands-on physical manipulation of your spine. You might hear clicking sounds as your bones pop, similar to the experience of popping your knuckles. The reason for a chiropractic adjustment is to correct your spinal alignment. An out-of-line spine will lead to pain, nerve irritation, and decreased joint mobility. Once you have a spinal adjustment these issues will be on route to being resolved. Keep in mind that every patient experiences varying results with chiropractic adjustments. You may feel 100 percent better after your first adjustment, or it may take you a few spinal realignments to get comfortable with the process.

Why Should I Go to a Chiropractor Instead of Getting Back Surgery for Back Pain?

If you are experiencing back pain, you want to see a medical professional. Your pain can be the result of any number of conditions or illnesses. At the same time, you want to keep an open mind with the diagnosis and treatment. While one doctor may say that back surgery and a lifetime of painkillers is in your future, a chiropractor might not feel exactly the same way. By getting a second, or even third, opinion about your back pain you can make a smarter decision about what to do next. Furthermore, your chiropractor will provide you with pain management solutions that are safe and effective.
