Managing Your Pain

How can you handle these back and neck pains during the cold? Family Chiropractic Care will help diagnose the reason you are having back, neck, or any other discomfort. The cold weather can cause flare-ups and such.  By thoroughly examining you, we can determine the diagnosis and go for a treatment that will fit your needs.

Our treatment methods will help ease the pain you are in by using our effective chiropractic methods. Whether your pain is worse from the cold weather or not, we will help relieve your pain in two different ways: Chiropractic care and massage therapy.

With Chiropractic care, we can utilize different exercises and advanced spinal correction treatments to help relieve your pain. Again, each patient will have their own unique treatment plan made for their particular circumstances. We will also offer advice on your lifestyle and nutritional choices.

You might have to rethink your personal nutritional intake. By having healthier, balanced meals, your chances of eliminating your back injury or pain can be detrimental for most patients. We can also offer our patients with spinal and postural screenings. You wouldn’t think it was possible but your posture can also affect the pain levels of your back, so think about taking advantage of some of these screenings, if you are having back or neck pain.

Another form of treatment we offer for back pain is massage therapy. By staying active and having our massage therapists working those muscles, the healing process can begin to help alleviate the pain and tightness the coldness brings on. We have 5 massage therapists working for us on-site, so take advantage of them when the pain becomes unbearable during those winter months.
