Pain Management: Definition and Treatments Involved
Updated: Dec 8, 2022
Often times when patients sustain an injury and are in pain, the first form of treatment they receive is prescribed medication. Medication doesn’t help the body heal; it masks the pain and avoids the underlying issues going on with the body. At Natural Care Chiropractic, Dr. Gopaul identifies the source of the pain and develops a customized plan to begin the patients healing process. For those suffering from pain in their back, shoulders, or neck, spinal adjustments that realign the spine help to reduce pain and begin the healing process.
There are a variety of solutions to treat patients suffering from back pain and are included but not limited to acupuncture, manual therapy, and adjustments. The goal of treating injuries with chiropractic care is to reduce swelling and inflammation in injured areas to provide pain relief without the harmful toxins from medicine and the potential of painkiller addiction.
On top of being a great form of treatment for injuries and the whole body, chiropractic care also helps to prevent future injuries from occurring. When Dr. Gopaul restores balance in the body, the body’s natural ability to heal itself is increased to create a healthier foundation to function.
