Pain Relief Q & A

What are the most common causes of musculoskeletal pain?

Musculoskeletal pain is among the most common of medical complaints in the U.S. and worldwide, with back and neck pain being especially common. Pain can be caused by different factors, and some of the most common types of pain include:

  • traumatic injury, including auto accidents and slip-and-fall accidents
  • work-related accidents and injuries, including repetitive use injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome or pain from poor work habits or poor ergonomic design
  • lifestyle issues like being overweight or obese, being sedentary or practicing poor posture
  • chronic diseases and conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • herniated discs or other spine-related diseases or issues, including scoliosis, sciatica, and cervical radiculopathy
  • circulation issues that interfere with the normal flow of blood or the brain
  • nerve impingements and entrapments

Seeing a chiropractor at the first sign of pain is essential, so it can be evaluated, and treatment can begin as soon as possible before a relatively minor issue develops into a serious medical condition.

How can chiropractic care provide pain relief?

Chiropractors help relieve pain in several ways. First, chiropractic adjustments can be used to realign the bones and discs in the spine. The spine provides a pathway for nerves traveling from the brain to the rest of the body. When this pathway is disrupted, signals cannot get through, and widespread pain and dysfunction can occur. Second, adjustments, massage, and physical therapy can all be used to promote better circulation and lymphatic drainage to promote optimal healing and remove toxins and wastes that can build up in tissues, causing pain and other symptoms. Chiropractic care also helps to promote better flexibility and strength, relieving stiffness and improving pain-free range of motion.

Can chiropractors provide pain relief for areas other than the spine?

Yes, chiropractors are skilled in helping patients manage and relieve pain throughout the body, providing holistic, patient-centered care for optimal results and long-term relief.
