There are days when you don’t understand why you have to deal with so much pain, even though you have already had back surgery, on medication, or have undergone an extensive series of physical therapy. What can you do?  There are three common types of treatment for chronic spinal pain; for short-term AND long-term relief. These include acupuncture, anti-inflammatory drugs, and chiropractic treatment.

Data was published following three unique studies in which patients were divided into the three different groups.  Only the patients who received chiropractic manipulation reached a level of statistically significant improvement, supporting that chiropractic treatment offered the best short-term (within 30 days) and long-term (after two years) benefits for those with chronic back or neck pain.

If you are suffering from pain and have lost, or are starting to lose, the ability to function normally, find a doctor of chiropractic who will help you achieve long-term chiropractic wellness! Following an intensive phase of chiropractic treatment in which the pain and disability levels decrease, it is important to follow up with regular chiropractic service.

Your experience with chiropractic care will vary, of course, based on your unique case history, health status, age, and inherited family strengths and weaknesses. However, there are several benefits of regular chiropractic care that many people can experience regardless of any existing conditions they may have:

  • Improves your overall health, asthma, blood pressure.
  • Reduces pain in your back, neck, and limbs, and headaches
  • Improves mental clarity
  • Reduces arthritis and joint pain
  • Promotes a healthy pregnancy
  • Restores mobility and range of motion
  • Improves how your body functions, such as bowels regularity
  • Relieves tension produced by stress
  • Can prevent invasive surgery and pain medications

It is important to continue chiropractic treatment for periodic spinal checkups, at least on a monthly basis. Although subluxations may occasionally occur just from the daily stress of life, they are more easily released. Your vertebrae will move more easily, your muscles are balanced and your discs, tendons, and ligaments will be stronger than before.
