Chiropractic Care for Chronic Pain
At Texas Injury Clinic, we provide chiropractic care to those who struggle with chronic pain, helping them achieve optimal and lasting physical health. Our doctors offer chiropractic services as part of work injury treatment, treatment for a sports injury, or treatment for an accident-related injury. Chiropractic therapy can be used to treat chronic pain in the neck and back, chronic headaches, sciatica, and other conditions.
Before administering chiropractic care for chronic pain at our Fort Worth, TX clinic, our doctors will first perform a thorough physical evaluation to diagnose the underlying cause of the problem. This will allow us to provide you with a customized chiropractic treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and yields the best possible results in your particular case.
If you are dealing with chronic pain due to an injury and are looking for relief, we encourage you to schedule your initial consultation at Texas Injury Clinic today.
What Is Chronic Pain?
Chiropractic care is intended to manage chronic pain, as opposed to intractable pain. Intractable pain refers to constant, severe pain that is best treated with potent medications and surgery. Chronic pain is persistent and does not generally respond to conventional methods of pain management. Pain is considered chronic if it lasts for three months or longer. Often, chronic pain is reported in the back, joints, or head, but cannot be attributed to a specific location beyond that.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help to Treat Chronic Pain?
Chiropractic care is one of the most misunderstood of all forms of medicine, especially in terms of its purpose. The overarching purpose of chiropractic care is to empower the body to heal itself. At the heart of chiropractic treatment are spinal adjustments. The manipulation of the spine allows the spine to move once more without restriction while restoring proper alignment to vertebrae so that they are positioned appropriately in the spinal column. This in turn reduces irritation of the nerves, which is responsible for inflammation, muscle tension, and other symptoms associated with chronic pain.
Patients emerge from treatment with greater mobility and range in joints and muscles that were previously restricted due to trauma or injury. Chiropractic care provides a natural form of restoring order to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, treating pain through non-surgical means that likely could not adequately be treated through surgery.
Chiropractic care for chronic pain is safe, effective, and conservative. We proceed from thorough diagnostic testing to ensure that we are treating the underlying cause of your pain, and not simply the symptoms. We strive to make sure that your chronic pain is treated at the source so that you can return to a fully healthy, pain-free lifestyle once again.
