Pain Relief Q & A

What Exactly Is Pain Relief?

When used in the context of chiropractic care, pain relief refers to natural and non-invasive procedures that alleviate pain. Manual adjustments, including spinal and extremity adjustments, are some of the most well-known pain relief treatments that chiropractors offer, but they’re hardly the only ones. Any procedure that a chiropractor performs to alleviate a patient’s chronic or acute pain is considered a pain relief procedure.

Who Should Go to a Chiropractor for Pain Relief Treatment?

Anyone who has pain may want to see a chiropractor. Since chiropractors offer a number of different procedures, they’re able to treat a wide variety of pains. They can help relieve both temporary pain and long-term pain in the neck, shoulders, back, arms, legs and other areas of the body.

Additionally, because chiropractors specialize in non-invasive and natural procedures, they’re often able to help patients who have underlying medical conditions that may prohibit doctors from using other pain relief treatments. For example, a patient may not be able to take a certain pain relief medication, but they might be able to have a chiropractic adjustment that provides pain relief.

How Long Do Chiropractic Pain Relief Treatments Take?

Chiropractic pain relief treatments are usually performed right in chiropractors’ offices as outpatient procedures. Most procedures take just part of a day, often less than an hour, and patients are typically free to return to their office, school, or home immediately after their treatment.

What Should Patients Who Have Pain Look for in a Chiropractor?

When selecting a chiropractor, patients should look for a licensed chiropractor who specializes in pain relief. Additionally, patients might want to find a chiropractor who has an office near them. Patients who have pain often need ongoing treatment, and going to a conveniently located chiropractor makes it easy to get to appointments. Recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors can help people find a highly qualified chiropractor in a patient’s neighborhood.
