Tackling Pain with Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
My oldest daughter has had nine knee surgeries and an organ donor transplant. My youngest daughter suffers from debilitating migraines. Neither of them ever imagined the pain they would have to deal with and most certainly, didn’t ask for it. But that’s how life works sometimes, doesn’t it? We are tested, challenged, and pushed to unimaginable limits. Sometimes, we can get through such circumstances with rest and the love and support of our family and friends. Other times, we need outside help. If you are being challenged right now with pain, and rest isn’t enough to reduce it, I would encourage you to see your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic.
Dealing with Pain
Just like a mother who knows … and I mean really knows … when her child is struggling with pain, your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic will know this about you as well. They understand pain. They get it. And they can help you find some relief. If you are struggling with any of the following, come on in!
- Ear Infections
- Joint pain (knee, elbow, ankle, shoulder, hip)
- Back or neck pain
The Conservative Approach
One of the more challenging aspects of treating pain is when a patient is unable to pinpoint a specific reason for it. Sure, it’s easy to diagnose if there has been an obvious injury to the body, but many pain issues develop slowly, over time. And although its presence is definitely known, the causes of pain can still be very vague or elusive. This is where chiropractic care shines! Here are a few of the many benefits of taking this approach.
- Source of pain - Chiropractic care identifies and treats the actual source of your pain, so your pain is tackled head-on, from Day 1 and isn’t just masked by medications … which leads me to …
- Less risk - Chiropractic care is drug-free, and although painkillers are often considered as being part of a conservative approach (in that they are non-invasive), that doesn’t mean they are free from problems. How many times have you bounced from one medication to the next because the side effects were doing a number on you?
- Positive results - Chiropractic care is synonymous with pain relief and improved overall wellness. In fact, studies have shown that patients who receive regular chiropractic adjustments often find immediate relief, long-lasting results, and better health.
Pain can definitely be challenging, but if it is addressed early with chiropractic care, your body can begin the process of healing itself and the risk of further damage may be reduced. So head on in to The Joint Chiropractic today. With more than 400 locations nationwide, no appointment or referral needed, and convenient weekend hours, relief is right around the corner. It’s time to accept that challenge and tackle you pain head-on!
