Chronic Pain Care at Lake Worth Chiropractic and Wellness
Chronic pain is a persistent, ongoing pain that continues beyond what is recognized as an average healing period. Chronic pain can affect anyone, regardless of their health or age. Regardless of the cause of your chronic pain, our chiropractor at Lake Worth Chiropractic and Wellness is here to help you find relief. Our chiropractic care offers non-invasive treatment methods to reduce pain and help you achieve better movement throughout daily life.
Causes of Chronic Pain
Low back pain is the most common type of chronic pain experienced, as noted in an NCBI.NIM.NIH.gov report. This report reveals that a decade earlier, the U.S. had estimated that approximately 100 million individuals were impacted by chronic pain with an estimated cost of medical expenses and lost production with an upwards range of more than $600 billion. And with the arrival of the aging baby-boomer population, the number of those challenged with chronic pain (and its debilitating effects) is only expected to rise proportionately.
Other kinds of chronic pain can occur in the form of headaches. Headaches can be caused by several factors, such as environmental or nutritional triggers. While medication offers a short-term solution to alleviate symptoms, chiropractic care can help ensure long-term sustainable pain relief by treating the condition at its source.
How Does Our Chiropractor Treat Chronic Pain?
Dr. Jack J. Cacic and our staff will first diagnose the source of your chronic pain. Your initial visit will typically include a consultation with our doctor, a thorough exam, and additional tests like x-rays if needed.
Our team at Lake Worth Chiropractic & Wellness will create a treatment plan that begins with simple body alignment treatments that help to naturally relieve tension & stress by rebalancing the musculoskeletal system. Spinal alignments often treat pain in areas that appear to have no connection to one’s spinal column.
In addition, our chiropractor can treat chronic pain with other non-invasive treatments to relieve muscle tension and inflammation throughout the body, including:
- Massage therapy – This treatment promotes healing through the promotion of blood flow and the reduction of inflammation
- Physical therapy – This ensures that a patient’s movement returns to proper functionality through several treatment sessions.
