Beating Chronic Pain: How Chiropractic Care May Be Able to Help You
Our approach to managing chronic pain involves addressing your health rather than just addressing the symptoms. This is the key to understanding pain: whether you suffer from back pain, neck pain, headaches or migraines, the pain itself is just a symptom that is alerting you to a deeper problem.
An exam and investigation into your health history helps Dr. Garcia better understand your problem. Very often, lasting pain is caused by a spinal misalignment where out-of-place vertebrae are pinching nerves. Because the nervous system delivers messages to and from the brain out to the rest of your body, pinched nerves cannot deliver their messages to direct and control the proper function of your body. When this happens, people start to notice decreased function, health problems and pain. Severe stress, soft tissue injuries, poor nutrition and being overweight can also cause lasting pain and aggravate headaches and migraines, fibromyalgia and other painful, chronic conditions.
After evaluating your exam and case history, Dr. Garcia will discuss a care plan with you, tailored directly to helping you heal from within. One major aspect of care includes very precise, gentle chiropractic spinal adjustments to realign vertebrae so that pinched nerves can be released and restored to normal function. This has helped many patients alleviate severe pain.
Depending on your condition, Dr. Garcia may also recommend other care to accelerate your body's healing process. A comprehensive detoxification and nutrition plan not only helps relieve many painful symptoms, but it can help people with weight loss and overall good health. We also provide a very wide range of state-of-the-art techniques such as oxygen therapy, Advanced Therapeutic Movements (to stimulate neurological repair and increase range of motion), disc decompression, cold laser therapy, cryotherapy, Rebuilder Neurological Therapy and many other techniques. The care recommended are tailored directly to the needs of each patient.
