Too many people suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is caused by a traumatic accident, aging, moving furniture, or playing sports. This pain persists beyond the expected healing time. It is best to seek chiropractic treatment to gain full joint function.
At Hanes Total Healthcare Center in Chillicothe, OH, our dedicated chiropractic care professionals do more than treat chronic pain. They create a comprehensive treatment plan that optimizes a patient's level of wellness. The suggestive lifestyle changes rely on an innovative approach to alternative medical care.
What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a treatment performed by a licensed chiropractor. They have studied how joints are manipulated to realign a patient's spine and reduce pain and discomfort.
Before treating chronic pain, your chiropractor must locate the source of the injury. Then, a physical exam will determine how to treat your pain. Chiropractic care helps alleviate pain throughout the body.
How Chiropractic Care Manages Chronic Pain
Typically, a chiropractor will treat knee, back, and shoulder pain with alternative care that does not include prescription medicine or surgery. A chiropractor will review your medical history and examine the injured region to diagnose joint pain.
All the information gathered will confirm the diagnosis and determine the severity of the pain. The treatment plan may include a series of chiropractic adjustments (spinal manipulation) that realign the injured joint and decrease a patient's chronic pain and muscle inflammation. Over time, you may experience an increase in the joint's range of motion.
The shoulder is the most complex joint in the human body. The slightest extension can cause immediate discomfort and pain. Usually, the injury will limit the joint's range of motion. Sometimes, shoulder injuries heal independently with time and rest, but chronic pain could develop later in life.
Most chiropractors will implement soft tissue massage therapy that untightens muscles and relieves spasms in the connecting tissues. Also, you need to begin a workout program that reduces the risk of chronic pain from remaining in your shoulder joint. In addition, specific exercises will help restore stability in the joints.
