Most people will use their opioids/pain medication, or go to the medical doctor for shots. If after a few days the pain does not go away, then what do you do?
The first step is taking an x-ray to find the root of the problem. If your medical doctor will not give you one, then go to your chiropractor. We are fortunate enough to have an x-ray facility in our office.
Only your chiropractor can look for spinal misalignments, disc problems, nerve conditions that your medical doctor will not see. And can be the cause of your pain.
Using this x-ray and your examination a chiropractor will explain a treatment plan to help correct the problem in your spine and remove your pain.
This can be done through chiropractic adjustments, stretching, modalities, and exercise. Treatments are used to create more motion to reduce the pain.
Patients are emailed and guided through home exercises. These allow people to feel better and happier.
Then a post x-ray is performed to show the improvement of the spine, and show the cause of the pain has been fixed.
Lastly, patients are encouraged to keep up with their exercise habits. This will keep their spine healthy, and life pain-free.
