Kirby Chiropractic Center, Providing Quality Spinal Dysfunction Care
If you are suffering from back pain or discomfort, our team at Kirby Chiropractic Center is here to help. Your back may be in pain, but that is not the only area we focus our attention on. We view you as a whole person with a problem that stems from something being not quite with your back. And in some cases, your issue may have nothing to do with back pain. That is why our experienced chiropractor will work with you to find the treatment that is right for you. After a thorough examination, we can get to the source of your discomfort and help you get on your way to living pain-free.
The Problem with Traditional Medicine
Traditional medicines like medication and surgery can help with spinal dysfunction pain, but can also cause issues themselves. Practitioners often prescribe opioid medications that help with pain relief but are not capable of actually solving the cause of the pain. Invasive back surgery can potentially lead to a patient being in worse condition than before the operation. It may leave the patient with new maladies like a limp or balance problem.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care works to remove the spinal dysfunction problem, instead of just treating its symptoms. Since the spinal column encloses and protects the nerves comprising the central nervous system, any impingement resulting from the misalignment will cause pain. And the pain may involve other parts of the body, in addition to the back. Depending on where the misalignment is, the pain may be felt in the shoulders, neck, back or legs, or a combination of all. Spinal dysfunction can be treated with proper chiropractic care.
A common condition to occur after an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is caused by forces violently whipping the head back and forth. The reason why trauma from whiplash is so painful is because the soft tissue around the neck gets the most impact. Since this is a musculoskeletal malady, our chiropractor will examine the entire spine looking for other restricted joint movements or any other musculoskeletal issues like muscle spasms, ligament injuries, or intervertebral disc injuries. We will perform a series of spinal adjustments to relieve pressure on the spine which may require a series of visits depending on the severity of your injury.
He will also prescribe massage therapy to break up any adhesions and restore healing circulation of blood flow to heal the area. We will also prescribe corrective exercises which serve several purposes. They relieve pain, reduce swelling, fight inflammation, and speed up tissue healing. Exercise can help to alleviate your spinal dysfunction with the right treatment program.
No matter what the source of your back pain or musculoskeletal discomfort is, our chiropractic manipulation, massage, and exercise will work together to allow the body to heal itself properly. You do not need to use harmful drugs or receive invasive surgery to correct your spinal dysfunction.
