Caron Chiropractic is committed to helping you overcome pain, not solely by treating symptoms, but also by identifying and treating the origin of your pain. Chiropractic care is largely built on the idea of getting to the roots of the issues that affect our patients and allowing that treatment to alleviate the pain experienced in the body. Getting to the root cause of the problem helps prevent future pain and flair ups as well as allowing you to no long feel like you need over the counter medications.
This is the main reason we discourage the long-term use of over the counter medications. Many of them are very effective at reducing pain in the short term, and they are appealing to many people for that reason. But once those medications wear off, the pain is likely to return because the problem of origin has not been addressed. If we look more closely at a classic source of pain, it may be easier to understand the limited helpfulness of medications and the greater importance of chiropractic care to treat the underlying sources of pain.
Underlying Cause Of Your Pain
Back pain is experienced by a huge number of people. An injury to the spine—perhaps one caused by misalignment—can be extremely painful. They can be debilitating and disruptive to even the most basic functions in life. The pain that is felt in such cases is often centered in the muscles that support the spine. Back spasms and sciatic pain are frequent outgrowths of the original injury, and both can be excruciatingly painful. Many over the counter medications can provide immediate and short-term pain relief, but that pain relief is the result of a disruption of pain signals, not the result of treating the source of the pain.
Effective Chiropractic Treatment For Pain Relief
In other words, when the pain reliever wears off, the pain is likely to return. Caron Chiropractic, however, can reduce the pain you are experiencing by effectively treating the underlying injury. If your pain is being caused by misalignment of your spine, our chiropractic providers can work with you to get your spine back in proper alignment. That is an important step toward resolving the issue. Therapeutic massage in combination with chiropractic adjustment relieves the stress that the muscles supporting your spine have been under.
The processes associated with chiropractic and massage also cause the body to release endorphins, which are natural pain relievers produced by our bodies. Caron Chiropractic relieves pain by treating the origins of it. Call us at (651) 255-9999 to schedule an appointment.
