Chronic Pain Can Be Treated At Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center, PLLC
Dealing with pain every day from chronic disorders, such as arthritis, can take the joy out of life. You probably even asked yourself if chiropractic care can help. At Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center, PLLC, we're committed to improving the quality of life of patients using non-invasive treatments. Our Livonia chiropractor, Dr. Schneider, takes an integrative approach that provides greater levels of relief and prevents pain from coming back.
What is Chronic Pain?
Pain affecting the body for over three months is considered chronic. Persistent pain can happen because of poor posture, a misaligned spine, car accident, nervous system interference, or a sports or work injury. It may seem like nothing at first, but months later the pain is still there or is worse than before.
Symptoms to Look For
The pain may be mild, moderate, severe or disabling, come and go, or nag you continuously. You might have trouble walking, sitting, or bending. The pain may ease with rest or intensify with activities. Numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation is possible if a nerve is irritated or pinched. While medications offer some relief they do not get rid of the underlying problem.
Common Chronic Pain Conditions
Ongoing pain may affect the neck, back, shoulder, arm, hand, hip, leg, or knee joint. It can happen due to aging or if the pain signals remain active after an injury heals. Nevertheless, chiropractic care may work for headaches, migraines, and these other conditions that trigger long-term pain:
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Inflammation disorders like osteoarthritis
Chronic Pain Management by Our Livonia Chiropractor
First, Dr. Schneider will try to diagnose the pain by doing a physical exam and a full x-ray of your spine. Once we identify the root cause of your pain, we can tailor a treatment plan that offers optimum relief.
Spinal adjustment is a key way to effectively manage neck and back pain, sciatica, and disc pain caused by misaligned joints or pressure on the nerve and discs. Dr. Schneider uses gentle force to manipulate and mobilize the spinal structures into alignment. Adjustments remove nerve interference caused by a pinched nerve, ruptured disc, or inflamed soft tissue. The techniques also work well for arthritis and fibromyalgia as they help reduce inflammation and the brain's sensitivity to pain.
Additionally, we may recommend massage therapy, gentle exercises, and regular adjustments to help maintain the results, strengthen the body, and boost immunity.
