Pain is a leading reason people seek medical care. For most patients, the standard treatment for musculoskeletal pain is rest and elevation if there's an injury. When discomfort doesn't go away with basic care, general practitioners may prescribe NSAIDs and a referral to physical therapy. There is another option. Whether you are at Lincoln Park or La Grange, Boyce Chiropractic offers pain relief without a prescription.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Before starting treatment, they will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, and talk to you about the appropriate action. A chiropractor is a licensed medical professional that can reduce discomfort through direct spinal manipulation, manual manipulation, and mobilization. These techniques are safe and can provide you with immediate relief for neck, back, and other types of acute and chronic pain.
Many chiropractors offer supportive treatments such as hot and cold therapy or electrotherapy to decrease discomfort and reduce swelling before or after manipulation depending on your symptoms and pain level. Most patients don't experience discomfort after an adjustment (spinal manipulation) and if you do, it should resolve within 24 hours of your appointment. If not, contact us for more information.
What Can a Chiropractor Treat?
There are many benefits to seeing a chiropractor for treatment other than the relief of common muscular discomfort. Thousands of people a year seek care for chronic headaches, sciatica, and conditions that cause pinched nerves, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety, stress, fibromyalgia symptoms, and bowel issues. Along with in-office spinal manipulation and heat techniques, your practitioner may also offer exercises you can do at home to improve posture. Proper posture and regular exercise benefit your health, improve sleep, and reduce discomfort from a number of illnesses and conditions.
