Pain Management Achieved Through Lindenhurst Chiropractic Care
Chronic back pain, sciatica, or an unhealed accident injury can stop you from living an active life. Traditional medical treatments for pain management rely on medication to cover up pain symptoms. This provides only fleeting relief, and can lead to a cycle of prescription painkiller dependency. At Natural Care Chiropractic, Dr. Mark Freund provides integrated pain management solutions that are all natural and drug-free. By combining chiropractic care with physical therapy and acupuncture, Dr. Freund manages pain symptoms by directly addressing their underlying cause.
Integrated Pain Management for Back Pain, Neck Pain and Headaches
The first step to managing chronic pain is to identify the underlying cause. For example, many patients with chronic back or neck pain may be suffering from a herniated disc in their spine. Patients who struggle with chronic headaches may have an untreated whiplash injury. Identifying the underlying cause allows Dr. Freund to create a customized treatment plan specifically targeting a patient’s unique pain management needs.
Chiropractic adjustments are an important part of our pain management solution. Many patients have one or more subluxations in their spine. These misalignments continually irritate the nervous system, creating blockages and compression that triggers back pain, neck pain and headaches. For example, a car accident injury such as whiplash may cause a misalignment of the cervical spine. As long as the neck remains out of alignment, patients will continually struggle with neck pain and headaches. Regular adjustments help maintain proper alignment, manage a patient’s pain without the need for medication.
Adjustments, manual therapy and acupuncture are also effective for treating chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia. While we cannot cure these conditions, Dr. Freund can create a Lindenhurst pain management plan that will reduce or eliminate the need for medication. Manual therapy, including myofascial release, targets muscle tissue deep within the body. This helps reduce swelling and inflammation that triggers chronic pain. Many of our patients who suffer from constant aches and pains report a significant improvement after just one treatment. Regular treatments can significantly improve overall health and enhance mobility.
Dr. Freund may also recommend acupuncture treatments as one of the most effective treatments currently available for back pain. We find that this evidenced-based treatment naturally complements spinal adjustments and manual therapy. The insertion of thin, sterile needles into pressure points throughout the body helps stimulate the nervous system and support a naturally balanced body. As an added benefit, patients enjoy improved digestion, heightened mental concentration / focus, and a better night’s sleep.
Our whole body approach to care not only manages chronic pain, but can also reduce the risk for future injury and illness. By restoring balance to the body, our chiropractor supports your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Our integrated approach to managing pain helps patients feel their best each and every day.
