Why is Chiropractic Care an Effective Alternative to Pain Management?
Chiropractic care is an effective alternative to pain management because it targets the underlying source of the pain so you can experience true pain relief that lasts. In most conventional settings, pain medication would be prescribed, which would cover up the outward symptom, which is the pain.
While you may experience some level of relief, the problem that is causing the pain is never addressed, and may even begin to get worse as you continue to use the affected limb or joint. Not to mention, many pain medications have dangerous side effects and can create a chemical dependency that follows you long into the future. By focusing on the cause, the pain won’t have any reason to exist.
How Does A Chiropractic Adjustment Work?
When you have a chiropractic adjustment, the doctor will manually manipulate your joints and vertebrae to bring your body back into alignment, reduce pain, and improve your range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can be performed using short lever thrusts with the hands and arms, or with a specialized tool. The cracking sound you hear is gas and pressure being released from the joints.
These adjustments are non-surgical procedures that generally take less than 30 minutes, and there is rarely any downtime associated with the treatments. You can drop in during the workday or after work and continue on with your normal routine once the adjustment is over. As with most bodywork, your first appointment may take longer as we get to know you and your condition, but once we’re familiar, it’s a smooth process.
