Natural Pain Relief for Neck Pain and Back Pain
Chiropractic care is an important part of a comprehensive pain management strategy. Many of our patients are surprised to learn that an undiagnosed spinal misalignment may be contributing to their chronic back or neck pain. For example, a car accident injury like whiplash can cause a misalignment of the atlas vertebra. Once this vertebra is out of alignment, it may place pressure on nearby nerves, which in turn triggers chronic pain. Patients may also suffer from increased headaches or migraines. While medication can provide temporary relief, drugs can only mask pain. They cannot correct the underlying mechanical misalignment that is causing the pain in the first place. Restoring alignment to the spine is the first step towards effective, drug-free pain management.
If your back pain is due to a herniated disc, spinal decompression therapy may also help. We offer the DRX9000 lumbar decompression machine. Decompression therapy uses gentle mechanical traction to restore space to compressed vertebra. This space allows a herniated disc to return to its proper position, relieving pressure on nearby nerves and alleviating pain. Decompression therapy can also provide pain relief for neck pain due to whiplash injuries.
Regular chiropractic adjustments help restore proper alignment to the spine, which naturally provides pain relief for neck pain and back pain. We use the Impulse iQ® Adjusting Instrument, which provides precise, computer-aided chiropractic adjustments that are gentle and safe for patients of all ages. These adjustments also support whole body health. When the spine is out of alignment, the entire body is at risk for injury and illness. In addition to chronic pain, many of our patients suffer from fatigue and low-grade illnesses, which further aggravates their pain and diminishes overall health. A strong spine provides a strong foundation for a healthy body.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our patients may also benefit from physical therapy for back pain relief. Physical therapy treatments from our Nashua chiropractors help restore strength and improve range of motion. When it is painful to move, many of our patients are initially afraid to exercise for fear of causing further damage. Our physical therapy exercises are a safe way to restore movement to the body without risking further injury. Dr. Parnell and Dr. Sullivan work closely to develop a treatment program that integrates physical therapy for back pain relief with chiropractic care for a complete pain management plan.
