At Shadowood Chiropractic Center, we understand the frustrations associated with chronic pain. Many of our patients struggle to perform daily tasks, such as walking up and down stairs, sitting for extend periods, or even turning the body from side to side. If chronic pain has made you a prisoner in your own body, our chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella is here to help.
Drug-free pain management techniques are an effective alternative to traditional pain relief, which relies on medication to numb chronic pain. Unfortunately, when medication wears off, pain will return. Consequently, many patients are worried that they will become dependent on medication. Given the number of dangerous side effects associated with long-term pain medication use, our chiropractor shares this concern. That’s why we are excited to offer patients an effective alternative to tradition pain relief.
Chiropractic adjustments are an effective technique for managing pain associated with conditions like chronic back and neck pain, sciatica, recurring headaches, and fibromyalgia. Chiropractic care works because it addresses the underlying cause for pain. In many patients, a misalignment of the musculoskeletal system is causing pain. When the spine is out of alignment, a herniated disk may compress nearby nerves. This nerve compression triggers chronic pain, which increases the risk for injury and illness. In short, a misaligned spine can wreak havoc on the body.
By restoring proper alignment to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care supports whole body health. Our treatments are effective for a number of pain conditions, including chronic back pain, neck pain, and sciatica pain. If a herniated disc in the lower back compresses the sciatic nerve, patients will experience chronic pain. A herniated or slipped disc in other parts of the spine can also trigger pain. Recurring headaches, for example, may be due to a misalignment of the cervical spine that places pressure on the rectus capitis posterior minor (RCPM) muscle. If this pressure causes the RCPM can spasm, headaches will occur.
By treating the addressing the cause for pain, chiropractic adjustments provide natural back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain relief, while also support internal healing. In addition to chiropractic care, our chiropractor may recommend other holistic care treatments, such as physiotherapy or massage therapy. Our goal is to support the natural healing process through holistic care.
Regular adjustments are also important for chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia. While chiropractic care cannot “cure” fibromyalgia, maintaining proper spinal alignment can help alleviate many of the chronic pain symptoms. We also recommend physiotherapy to help bring a full range of movement and flexibility back to the body. These exercises support the body’s natural movements while reducing the risk for future injury. Being active helps the body stay in optimal physical condition, despite the challenges associated with fibromyalgia.
