If you have chronic pain, you may not be aware that chiropractic care is a treatment option. No one treatment is right for everyone, but there are advantages to choosing a chiropractor to help manage your pain. Chronic pain management is one of our specialties at Tucson Chiropractic in Tucson.
Chiropractic Care Gives Strong Relief
Studies have shown that chiropractic care is actually more effective than medications for some types of pain. One study found, "Manual-thrust manipulation provides greater short-term reductions in self-reported disability and pain compared with usual medical care. 94% of the manual-thrust manipulation group achieved greater than 30% reduction in pain compared with 69% of usual medical care."
Treats the Problem Not the Symptoms
This is perhaps the most valuable benefit of seeing a chiropractor. They treat the underlying problem instead of simply masking it with medications. This leads to greater mobility and function and can reduce your chances of needing surgery by as much as 40%.
It Can Be Used with Other Treatments
There is no reason why you can't use chiropractic treatment alongside conventional therapies like medication. When you are in pain, any treatment that helps is worth considering. Chiropractic care can make a wonderful addition to your current pain management regimen, resulting in greater pain relief and increased quality of life.
It's Low Risk
Conventional treatments like medication or surgery carry serious risks to your health. Chiropractic care is very low risk, with the most common side effect being temporary soreness.
It Treats Many Painful Conditions
Chiropractic care can do more than treat back or neck pain. It can offer effective treatment for many conditions, including:
- Cancer pain
- Headaches or migraines
- Menstrual disorders
At Tuscon Chiropractic Spine and Injury Center, we are glad to offer top-level care that can relieve many types of pain. Whether you choose chiropractic care alone or as a complementary therapy, there's no good reason not to see what it can do for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
