Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic - Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are experiencing chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, sciatica, shoulder pain, wrist pain or another chronic pain condition, you deserve immediate relief from this pain. That’s exactly what you’ll get with chiropractic care from Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is a conservative treatment approach for pain relief and injury rehabilitation. Our Nashua chiropractors follow a three-step approach to chiropractic treatment: relief care, corrective care, and wellness care. Relief care is the first step in your journey back to pain free living.
Nashua NH Chiropractic Care for Back & Neck Pain Relief
The goal of relief care is to provide immediate, long-lasting pain relief that’s effective without the need for medication or invasive surgery. We focus on managing your symptoms so you can return to living an active life without the constant, daily struggle of chronic pain. Relief care is tailored to each individual patient’s needs. That means you may need daily visits or twice-weekly visits. It truly depends on your pain levels and unique needs.
Our chiropractic care is an effective pain relief technique because it targets the root cause for symptoms, rather than just ‘covering up’ pain for our Nashua, Hollis, Brookline, and Pepperell, NH patients. If you have previously been relying on prescription painkillers or over-the-counter medication to manage your pain, then you know exactly how frustrating it can be to only have symptoms temporarily ‘covered up’ by drugs. Pain management medications work by numbing the brain’s ability to perceive pain while increasing endorphin or serotonin levels in the brain, which are associated with feelings of pleasure. The result: your pain disappears and you feel better than ever – until the medication wears off, that is. Once a pain pill wears off, it can seem like your pain symptoms come crashing back worse than they have ever been.
Chiropractic care is different. This treatment technique directly targets on the underlying mechanical misalignment that is responsible for your pain. For example, sciatica sufferers may experience radiating pain in the low back, buttocks and legs. This pain is often due to the compression of the sciatic nerve by a herniated or slipped disc in the lower spine. As long as this compression persists, so too will your pain. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, non-invasive treatment technique that can relieve lumbar spine compression by restoring correct alignment to the spine.
While most patients experience pain relief after just one or two adjustments, for maximum relief benefits we recommend a series of chiropractic adjustments. During the relief care phase of treatment, you may receive multiple chiropractic adjustments from our chiropractor that are designed to bring correct alignment back to the spine. Complementary treatment techniques, like spinal decompression therapy, are also effective for relieving compression and pain. At Main Street Wellness & Chiropractic, our chiropractors perform spinal decompression treatment with the DRX9000 spinal decompression machine for cutting-edge pain relief.
