How Chiropractic Care Can Help Manage Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can be debilitating. Chiropractic care can help.

More Americans are affected by pain than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined. It’s the top reason Americans seek medical help, and it’s the leading cause of disability.

While in many cases pain symptoms are temporary, chronic pain can be difficult to cure because it can often have no identifiable cause. If you have chronic pain, the health care professionals at Wolmed Work and Auto Injury Experts may be able to help alleviate it with chiropractic care.

Traditional pain management

For years, doctors have treated chronic pain sufferers with opioids. The problem with this is that patients who take opioids can build up a resistance to the medications, thus leading to the need for stronger drugs. This cycle can lead to dependence on drugs.

Nonpharmaceutical methods can require injections, implanted devices or surgical procedures,

Physical Medicine and Chiropractic principles and pain relief

Physical Medicine and Chiropractic adjustments are about restoring your body’s natural balance. When joint alignment is compromised, your body loses efficiency. It’s already constantly at work, repairing damage and trying to relieve the pain you feel.

When your alignment is off, your nerves can get irritated, and your blood flow can get compromised. Your circulatory system provides the raw materials necessary for your body’s maintenance, so when your tissues aren’t well-supplied with blood, your body’s ability to heal can be inhibited.

Pain management with MD care and chiropractic care for your Work Injury or Car Wreck Injury

Improving your body’s blood flow is only part of the benefit of chiropractic care. The pain relief chiropractic adjustments can provide often stems from the release of impinged nerves. While releasing nerves isn’t the express purpose of chiropractic care, it’s a common side effect. Chronic pain often originates with dysfunction of the nerves.

So while chiropractic care isn’t necessarily targeted toward fixing the various origins of your pain, treatment can give your body the best chance to function well and heal itself. As part of a pain management program, chiropractic care can reduce your reliance on pain medication. The American College of Physicians now recommends spinal manipulation as part of an effective treatment plan for lower back pain.
