Non-Surgical Solutions for Long Lasting Pain Relief

If you are living with chronic pain, you likely have attempted to find relief through medication. While medicine can block the pain messages from the nerves to the brain, it is just allowing you a temporary reprieve.

The pain will return because the underlying cause of the pain has not been treated. In order to find true relief from chronic pain, the cause must be addressed, and that is where chiropractic care and non-surgical solutions come in.

How can chiropractic care assist in relieving pain?

The body is a complex system of interconnected networks of ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves and bones. When it is working and performing well, everything is in its place and the entire body has equilibrium and balance. When any of these components become damaged, shift, tear or break, the delicate interplay of the musculoskeletal system is thrown off and pain and inflammation can often result.

A chiropractor, through a thorough examination, can determine what parts of the body need adjustment and through manual or technological means restore the elements of your body to a proper position. This can be done with manual chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, or through other technological means.

Chiropractic care can target the following sources of pain by correcting misalignment:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Migraines
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Disc and other spinal issues
  • Once the chiropractor has put your body back into alignment, the inflammation and pressure on the nerves is alleviated, so the pain abates as well.

    How can regenerative therapies address pain?

    There are two main ways that doctors can use the healing factors within your own body to assist in sending messages to damaged tissues and cells: cell therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections.

    When tissues are damaged as a result of injury or simply the wear and tear of daily life as we age, they can cause pain as a result of the body’s response to the pressure in the affected areas – inflammation. Unless the tissues themselves begin to heal or are repaired, the inflammation will continue to cause pain by placing undue pressure on the nerves.

    Cell therapy and PRP injections both use healing factors such as cytokines to promote cellular growth in damaged tissues. By harnessing the power of intercellular communication, the injections provide a catalyst for the body to begin or continue the healing process for the areas of injury or tissue damage. Once the cells begin to renew themselves, the damage begins to disappear, as does the pain and accompanying inflammation.

    If you are searching for solutions for your chronic pain that don’t involve invasive surgery or simply managing the pain with medication, chiropractic care and regenerative medicine might be right for your situation.
