Chiropractic Care for Chronic Pain
Makefield Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Newtown, PA provides chiropractic care for various conditions, including leg pain, lower back pain, disc pain, and a wide range of others. If you are suffering from chronic pain, we have different treatment options available that are non-invasive and don't involve invasive procedures or prescriptions.
Types of Chronic Pain
Patients suffering from chronic pain is usually caused by:
- A Herniated Disc: The vertebrae in your spine are separated by discs, which are cushions made of a soft, jelly-like center within a tougher, rubbery exterior. When the soft center pushes out through a crack in the tough external cover, this is called a ruptured or herniated disc. It may push on a nearby nerve resulting in tingling, numbness, leg pain, lower back pain, or other forms of pain.
- Sciatica: This is a pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, the body's longest nerve, and runs down one or both legs. It may be caused by a bone spur or herniated disc which presses down on the sciatic nerve.
Different Therapies for Chronic Pain
Once your pain has been diagnosed and the root cause found, our chiropractor will provide an effective treatment option, including:
This therapy can be used alongside chiropractic care to provide relief faster. It works through photobiomodulation, producing a light beam that triggers increased cellular energy production, leading to improved circulation and decreased inflammation. When used alongside chiropractic adjustments and compressions, it has been shown to be very effective in pain reduction and a more effective treatment devoid of side effects.
This motorized traction treatment gently stretches the spine to change its position and take pressure off the spinal discs, letting fluid move freely around them to promote healing by improving circulation and reducing pain.
This treatment aims to help treat people with limited functional mobility without the use of a surgical procedure. Besides pain, other problems that can be treated with physical therapy include fractures, stroke complications, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal cord injuries, arthritis, and sports injuries.
