Everybody who is in pain wants to get out of pain, right? Well we know that getting you out of pain as fast as possible is not just a want – its a NEED.
The problem with pain in the spine is that it can lead to rapid weakness in supporting muscles, especially when nerves are involved such as in cases of "pinched nerves", sciatica, disc herniations, and radiculopathy (nerve irritation or damage). And when the back pain stops, research has shown that the supporting muscles do not just return back to normal. They can remain weak. This weakness can trigger a cycle of recurrent pain. Another major concern it that pain has been shown to quickly change movement control at all levels in the nervous system. Retraining normal movement becomes a concern to help a full recovery of pain episodes.
That's why we are so concerned about breaking pain cycles. The faster we help pain relief, the faster we can help restore normal function, supportive muscle control, and true functional health.
When it comes to pain relief, there are many naturally effective pain relief options. As your Tacoma chiropractor, we have you covered. We focus on matching the proper diagnosis of your condition to the proper pain relief therapy. We help a range of pain relief for spine conditions like disc herniation, scoliosis, lumbar sprain, cervical sprain, whiplash, sciatica, and scoliosis. And we also help with full body pain relief related to muscle and joint problems like TMJ, shoulder pain, rotator cuff strains, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, hip DJD (osteoarthritis), knee sprains and knee DJD (osteoarthritis), and foot pain and plantar fasciitis.
We also use natural therapies like spinal manipulation, manual therapy, cold laser (low level laser), Active Release, KinesioTape, traction, massage therapy, trigger point release, and a range of other natural approaches. We have a high success rate in managing pain without drugs or surgery.
Recent studies have shown act people with back pain usually get trapped in the cycle of recurrent pain. That means the real problem is not the pain you have today, but the pattern of pain relapses and remissions into the future.
The other problem is that pain, and back pain in particular, reduces activity. Pain can be a common contributor to disability and reduces quality of life.
Our focus is to bring you fast pain relief so that your life returns to the meaningful activities at are important to you and those around you.
