Here at Advanced Chiropractic Center, we believe that everyone deserves to live as comfortably as possible, and that means alleviating pain. While many people know that chiropractic treatment can effectively relieve acute pain from an injury, fewer are aware that a chiropractor can also help manage or alleviate their chronic pain. In this article, we’ll go over some of the reasons why we encourage people to consider visiting a chiropractor for help with chronic pain.
- Accurate Assessment- One reason that we at Advanced Chiropractic encourage those with chronic pain to see us for treatment is that we can accurately assess the underlying cause. With over 25 years of experience, our team is highly familiar with how to identify and diagnose various neuromusculoskeletal conditions that can lead to chronic pain. Once we know the source of the problem, we will create a customized treatment plan to target your specific needs.
- Support for Your Other Treatments- In some medical circles, chiropractors have a bad reputation due to a belief that they don’t support traditional medical treatments. Our goal at Advanced Chiropractic is always to promote the best outcomes for you, the patient, and to accomplish that, we take a comprehensive look at your various treatments in order to best alleviate pain and maintain or restore function. If you’re worried that we’ll tell you not to trust your doctor, fear no more. Our aim is to work together with other medical providers as a team to get you the best care and results possible!
- Proven Results- The last reason to consider chiropractic treatments for your chronic pain that we’ll cover here is that they have documented evidence for their effectiveness. In one 2012 study, chronic pain patients were split into three groups, with one receiving only pain medication, one receiving an exercise regimen, and one receiving chiropractic care. When the results were tallied, 32 percent of the chiropractic group had become pain-free, compared to only 30 percent for the exercise and just 19 percent for the medication group.
