Back pain. Neck pain. Hip pain. Knee pain. Migraine. Fibromyalgia. Muscle pain. Osteoarthritis. Dozens of other sources of pain. Chiropractors are specialists in restoring normal structure and function to the body to relieve pain. Your chiropractor works with your doctor and other healthcare providers to give you relief from pain that lasts. What is it about a chiropractor’s care that is so effective in treating pain?
The Greek words from which our language derived the term chiropractic originally meant “done by hand.” Chiropractors move your spine with their hands to put your body back into alignment. The treatments we have come to expect from a chiropractic practice generally falls into three general categories:
- Spinal manipulation. Chiropractors have dozens of methods of spinal manipulation they use to realign the spine and reduce pain.
- Spinal immobilization. When the physical structure of the spine makes it too fragile to be manipulated, or when trauma to the spine is too recent, chiropractors use other techniques to keep random motion from causing greater injury.
- Complementary healing techniques. Chiropractors are experts in individualized therapies. Among hundreds of alternative treatments, they employ heat, cold, acupressure, acupuncture, and many other modalities to accelerate healing. Your chiropractor can teach you new ways of sitting, standing, walking, lifting, and exercising that accelerate your recovery and prevent further injuries.
How Do We Know Chiropractic Pain Treatment Really Works?
Chiropractors don’t work alone. They collaborate with other physicians who demand evidence that their techniques work. If you were to make a quick search at PubMed, the online National Library of Medicine, you would find links to at least 1,235 published scientific studies of the use of chiropractic just to treat low back pain. Clinical trials have shown that people living with low back pain have less pain for a shorter time when they get both chiropractic and conventional medical care. And if you expand your search to the use of chiropractic technique in treating other kinds of pain, PubMed will give you links to 1,718 more studies of successful therapy for arthritis, fibromyalgia, whiplash, sports injuries, and a lot more.
The beauty of chiropractic care is that it is non-surgical and non-pharmacological. There are no addictive drugs you have to take to enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care. You don’t have to rely just on steroids or immunosuppressant drugs. Your own body provides the healing you need once it returns to normal alignment.
