Can a Chiropractor Really Help?

Have you been dealing with persistent back and neck pain? Maybe you have been going to doctors for years to deal with the situation. You have been prescribed painkillers to deal with your discomfort, but you don’t want to take opioids. You have considered surgery, but you may think it too risky and there is no guarantee it will work.  There is another option that people who suffer chronic pain like you are turning – chiropractors.  You may ask “Can a chiropractor really help with my neck and back pain?” The answer to your question is yes; chiropractors offer effective treatment for back, neck, and other types of pain.  Let’s see how Epic Healthcare and Physical Medicine can help you.

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Effective?

Various studies have shown that chiropractic treatment is effective and clinically beneficial for both acute and chronic low-back and neck conditions. Epic Healthcare and Physical Medicine will thoroughly examine you and may use imaging, so we are sure of what your condition entails. Once we have determined the cause of your pain, and how extensive it is, we will determine the best treatment. One of our chiropractors will make one or more adjustments that involve manipulating the spine through a swift and controlled motion.  These adjustments are incredibly useful for acute back or neck pain and can be very effective for chronic back or neck pain as well.

Other conditions that may benefit from effective chiropractic treatment are:

  • Chronic headaches.
  • Disc herniations.
  • Ruptured discs.
  • Arm and leg pain.
  • Rib pain.

Despite what your pain issue may be, each condition is unique and may need individual treatment options. At Epic Healthcare and Physical Medicine, we are committed to treating the individual. When you arrive for the first time, we will take the time to investigate your pain and then develop a treatment plan that fits your issues.

Using a Chiropractor is Safe?

Licensed and certified chiropractors who hold a doctor of chiropractic degree offer safe and effective chiropractic treatment. In terms of modern medicine, chiropractors are a safe alternative to more invasive methods. There are no surgical incisions with chiropractic adjustments. There is no risk of complications from anesthesia with a chiropractor, and there is no risk of contracting a staph infection.

Chiropractors do not prescribe addictive opioids to mask pain, but rather deal with the source of the pain. There is no chance you will become dependant on pills with chiropractic treatments. There are no lengthy hospital stays, and you feel the benefits of the treatments right away.  In other words, seeing a chiropractor for pain is in many ways safer than standard medicine.  In fact, chiropractic medicine can be used to shorten recovery time from injuries to degenerative disc disease. It is one of the most effective forms of physical therapy that exists.

How Often Should You Go To a Chiropractor?

The amount you should visit a chiropractor really depends upon what is being treated and the severity of the condition. If you are suffering from a serious injury, you may need to see the chiropractor two to three times a week at first, when the injury is in its worst condition. As your health improves, the number of visits may be cut back to once or twice per week; until your injury has completely healed. Chronic, painful problems may require you to see the chiropractor on a continuous, indeterminate basis.

Patients may see the chiropractor more often when the pain flares up, and less often when the pain is less intense. With certain conditions, you will see the chiropractor on a regular basis to prevent pain, maintain health, avoid injuries and improve your quality of life. Preventative adjustments may happen less frequently than other types of care. If your purpose is to visit the chiropractor for prevention only, you may alter the frequency you see the chiropractor.

It’s important to remember that everyone responds differently to chiropractic care. For some, effective chiropractic treatment provides relief in only a few visits while others may need additional adjustments. This is largely determined by the injury and the body’s willingness to return back to a state of normalcy. It also depends on your natural posture and habits.
