Chiropractic is a healing science
Chronic pain is one of the least tangible and least understood parts of modern medicine; for every person who finds lasting pain relief with a given treatment, there are others with the same diagnosis who will not. This is because every body is different and thus, every body is attempting to heal itself differently. Then we add in the treatments of modern medicine: drugs, surgery, or physical therapy; and we make lifestyle adjustments including diet, exercise. But this traditional method for treating pain simply does not work for everyone! Many people are left frustrated at the waste of money, time and energy they have spent on treatments that have done little to nothing for improving their pain. Alternative medicine exists because of the people who seek alternatives- the people who are willing to try something different because they know that tradition hasn't worked for them.
Chiropractic for chronic pain
The reason that chiropractic and other alternative forms of medicine are so successful at mitigating chronic pain is that they optimize the body's ability to heal itself naturally. It begins with the theory: chiropractic believes that wellness depends upon the optimal functioning of the nervous system. Accordingly, dysfunction in the structures, systems and muscles of the body is also responsible for pain. By identifying and correcting irregularities in your musculoskeletal being, we can take the first step toward scaling back the pain.
Treating your pain as a unique case with chiropractic
Because no two people's pain are the same, there is accordingly no panacea for pain that will work for everyone. We treat each case as individual, beginning with a medical examination that takes into account medical history, physical condition and profile of pain; as well as an examination of your musculoskeletal form to determine the root cause of your pain. From here, we set a course for treatment that utilizes a multitude of modalities to focus on correcting the root of your pain, as well as optimizing the function of your body to prevent injury from recurring.
