Pain Management at the Back Pain Institute
If you’re looking for an Odessa Chiropractor, chances are that you probably have already heard or experienced the healing benefits of using chiropractic care for pain management and other types of chronic pain relief.
If you’re new to chiropractic, it’s important to note that one of the most appealing aspects of this type of treatment modality is that it focuses on prescription free pain relief. Chiropractic care promotes the achievement of health and well-being through more natural methods than those typically used in traditional health care. Considering the problems that often arise as a result of medications that have undesirable side effects and surgeries that can be expensive and cumbersome, a natural approach to healing is much more sustainable and easier on the body over the long-term.
There are many conditions that can be successfully treated with chiropractic care. At Back Pain Institute of West Texas, we treat patients for a wide variety of illnesses that re-occur often because the underlying cause has not been properly identified. This is another way in which chiropractic care sets itself apart from traditional medicine. Instead of just treating presenting symptoms, which is a temporary solution, we look for the underlying cause of the problem. This means that we consider all of the factors that may be contributing to or worsening your pain or injury. We consider not just physical aspects, but also emotional, mental and lifestyle factors as well. In this way, we can create a treatment plan that addresses the “whole person” and comprehensively works to alleviate pain and foster long-term health maintenance. Although back pain is the most widely cited ailment among chiropractic patients, other common recurring or chronic conditions that we work with include:
Arthritis pain is often caused by inflammation in the joints. Chiropractic spinal manipulation works to realign vertebrae that have become imbalanced, causing joints to become weak or damaged. When the spinal health is improved, joints become less susceptible to painful inflammation.
Fibromyalgia causes a variety of aches and pains such as migraines, back pain, depression, mood swings, fatigue and numbness or pain in the extremities. In addition to manual spinal manipulation, chiropractors often make use of other treatment modalities that can help to more effectively address generalized symptoms such as those found with fibromyalgia. Other holistic methods may include treatments such as massage therapy, nutritional counseling and physical therapy, which when used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, can greatly expedite the healing process.
