Introduction to Pain Management with a Chiropractor

Nearly everyone will benefit from chiropractic care. If you’ve never had treatment from our MD chiropractor, there is much our team can offer. A pain-free life can be expected along with good overall health, wellness, and vitality.

The main reason most individuals approach chiropractor care is to have relief from discomfort. One benefit of total body treatments is the results can be permanent. We work to correct the underlying cause of the problem. Whether you need one adjustment or several treatments, our goal is for you to be free of pain. Pain will no longer interfere with your life.

Your individualized program is tailored to your symptoms and yours alone. We’ll use nothing less than state of the art adjustment techniques in addition to the latest chiropractor tools and devices, potentially including physical therapy and nutritional recommendations. The goal is always to get to the root cause of a problem, and not simply cover up the symptoms. Working with the spine is core to what we do, and the concentration on this component of the musculoskeletal system is one thing that sets this proven treatment apart from other approaches. We work hard to be the best chiropractor in Rockville MD, and our reviews and long list of satisfied patients prove  we are the best choice in and around 20850.

A second benefit is that our treatments provide a natural approach to pain relief. When you choose treatments from our highly skilled professionals, you will not have to rely on addictive medication that can cause side effects. Adjustments and treatments can also be an excellent alternative to surgery. It does not involve many of the potential risks associated with surgery, and there is no long recovery period. You will be able to resume your daily activities after your treatments.

Pain can come from many different places. Though it can most often be divided into two different sources, neuropathic pain and nociceptive pain. The treatment that you receive is based in a large part on what sort of pain you are experiencing. In simple terms, nociceptive pain is a the sort of discomfort felt from a broken bone or a cut. It envolves tissue damage and peripheral nerve signals that are transfered from the spinal cord to the brain. Nueropathic pain is far more ambigious and as a result can be chronic or spontanious. This sort of pain is usually caused by a disease or damage to the nervous system and can mean that often there is no obvious source for the pain.

You can further break down nociceptive pain into somatic or radicular. If you have experienced pain in your legs, arms, or back it is most likely nociceptive pain. Radicular pain is often associated with radiculopath or numbness, tingling, loss of reaflexes, or weakness in the distribution of the effected nerve. This sort of pain is usually caused by a disc herniation or tennis elbow and can be treated with several tradition medical procedures.

Neuropathic pain can be very difficult to treat as the symptoms and cause of the pain can be quite varied from client to client. It requires careful diagnosis and usually needs several different chiropractic treatments in order to relieve the pain. Most doctors will provide medications for this treatment but often times people are wary of taking so many meds, especially with the current rise in opiod issues. Neuropathic pain is generally caused by fibromyalgia, interstitial cystits, irritable bowel syndrome, and even reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

Not all pain can easily fit into the two usual categories but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be treated with chiropractic procedures. If you suffer from headaches, facial pain, joint pain, or anything beyond be sure to contact our office. We have been practicing for over 30 years and have seen it all.

There is nothing more valuable than your health. If you are not eating properly, do not exercise, or suffer from chronic pain, it affects your quality of life.

You should feel good and enjoy good health. We can determine the cause of your health problems, and choose the treatment plan that is right for you. Avoid unnecessary surgical procedures, potentially dangerous diet pills or painkillers, and take the natural approach to a healthy lifestyle instead.

After you have your first treatment, you will know why so many people today choose this form of alternative medicine that has existed for centuries. There are no complications, no recovery periods afterward, and everyone in your family can benefit.  You can start to feel relief after your very first visit to our chiropractic treatment facility in Montgomery County, Maryland.
