Chiropractic Care for Pain
Pain affects different people in unique ways but to each person pain limits their ability to enjoy life to its fullest. At our chiropractic and acupuncture office, Dr. Oskardmay applies spinal and other joint mobilization to regions of subluxation to reduce pain and enhance performance. Chiropractic care has a long-standing history of helping people reduce body aches naturally and Dr. Oskardmay enjoys providing this service to Triangle patients. Pain stemming from nerve interference or posture problems affects countless individuals and Dr. Oskardmay offers unique and effective solutions.
Some people strive to reduce pain using drugs and other medicines. These oral and injectable agents largely hide pain’s effects without getting to its source. Some pain medications have serious side effects ranging from constipation to stupor. Chiropractic care does not have these negative side-effects and Dr. Oskardmay strives to use the chiropractic adjustment and massage to soothe a frequent cause of pain- nerve root irritation and muscle inflammation.
Others ignore the pain and `work through it` which diminishes their life enjoyment and even their ability to function fully at least while they are in pain. Pain in all of its manifestations is a signal that something in the body needs attention. Ignoring it or covering it up with pain medications does not serve pain’s deeper goal- to get the person to pay attention to the cause of the problem. Through careful examination leading to accurate diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Lisa can help you understand what causes pain and how to reduce it. A helpful health coach, she will also counsel you in exercises and other activities you can take home to prevent recurrence.
The chiropractic adjustment and muscle massage work to soothe body aches and pains as they restore normal vertebral position and reduce nerve impingement. Spinal nerves, originating from the spinal cord surrounded by bony vertebral segments, travel to all body regions. These nerves carry pain and other sensory information, as well as movement instructions from the brain. Misalignment of the bony spine segments causes nerve impingement, spinal instability, and muscle spasm. Pain and muscle imbalance result. Problems ranging from neck and back pain to fibromyalgia and headaches respond well to gentle chiropractic care. In our office, Dr. Oskardmay offers hands-on spinal mobilization methods as well as Activator Adjustment Technique. Ask her if you have any questions about these procedures and let her know of any treatment preferences you may have.
Pain medications and drugs do not fix problems caused by pinched nerves and vertebral subluxations, but the chiropractic adjustment does. Dr. Oskardmay uses gentle effective mobilization procedures to repair nerve transmission problems stemming from spine irritation and muscle spasm. Additionally, she applies muscle massage and other physical therapy techniques to reduce detrimental muscle spasm and posture imbalance. For treatment to be effective, you may need to return for several follow up visits at the start. Many people go on to use chiropractic maintenance therapy over the years to maintain their spinal health. The choice is yours and chiropractic care can help you reduce pain naturally.
