Manage Your Chronic Pain
Chronic and acute pain can knock you off your feet. Back pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, sciatica, headaches and migraines can prevent you from working, going to school, taking care of you family and doing those things you love. Fortunately, your chiropractor in Scottsdale can relieve your pain and get you back in the action again through safe and effective pain management services.
Pain can be acute, meaning the pain comes on quickly and intensely. Chronic pain, usually associated with a long-term illness or injury, can last for weeks, months or even years. The Institute of Medicine says more than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, affecting more people than heart disease, diabetes and cancer combined.
What Our Scottsdale Chiropractor Can Do For You
To reduce pain, healthcare professionals must accurately diagnose and assess the source of pain then determine a course of treatment that works well for the patient. Most approaches to pain management include a proper balance of rest and physical activity, hot and cold compresses, non-prescription medication and sometimes prescription painkillers or even surgery.
While these approaches may be effective, they are not always the best choice for some patients. Bed rest prevents busy people from accomplishing their goals. Prescription pain relievers are not always appropriate for treating chronic pain because they cloud thinking, may cause serious side effects and can even be addictive. Surgery may require an expensive hospital stay and poses a risk for complications. Furthermore, surgery is not always effective for relieving certain types of pain, including fibromyalgia or migraines.
Each year, millions of people turn to chiropractic care for the relief of acute or chronic pain.
