Pain Management at True Health Chiropractic & Massage
Pain is more than just a symptom of a health problem or injury -- it's a potentially debilitating challenge in its own right, especially when that pain is chronic and unremitting in nature. If you're struggling to work, sleep or just make it from one day to the next because of pain, you need solutions to the root cause of your symptoms, not just medications that dull the agony temporarily. Here at True Health Chiropractic & Massage, we can provide safe, drug-free pain management services to help you enjoy life again.
The Many Faces of Pain
Pain can assume many forms and stem from many different triggers, not all them located in the same spot as the pain itself -- which makes understanding your discomfort even harder. Sometimes the initiating event is clear enough. An auto accident injury or injury in the workplace, for example, can do acute damage to your spinal column or extremities, forcing joints out of their normal position, pinching nerves and pulling muscles. But the pain caused by such injuries may wear out its welcome by lingering long after you thought your injury had healed. Internal scarring can "glue" muscles into place, preventing full healing and restricting motion painfully. Misalignments left over from the injury may continue to press against nerve roots, sending pain signals to various points along those nerve pathways (a problem known as referred pain).
You don't even have to hurt yourself to experience chronic pain. Age-related problems such as bulging discs (the result of water loss inside the disc), osteoarthritis of the facet joints connecting the vertebrae, reduced space within the spinal canal (stenosis) or the slippage of one vertebra over another (spondylolisthesis) can all cause musculoskeletal and neurological pain. Changes in your spinal alignment and posture can cause muscular aches and pains. Poor nerve function can even contribute to systemic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia.
Treatment Methods Offered by Our Bloomington Chiropractor
Our Bloomington chiropractor, Dr. Justin Hillman, can spare you from a lifetime of dependence on heavy painkillers by stopping your pain at the source, which not only makes you feel better but also helps improve your physical function. Chiropractic care (through manual techniques or our Pulstar adjusting tool) can bring your joints back in line so they can work properly again. Spinal decompression can put a stop to nerve impingement, spinal joint strain and referred pain by repositioning bulging/herniated discs.
Our holistic approach to pain management allows us to bring other safe, effective techniques to bear on your symptoms as well. Massage therapy, for instance, can loosen painfully tight muscles, help break up internal scarring and enhance the healing of injured tissues.
