Millions of Americans experience back pain at some point in their lives. For some, the pain goes away after an expanse of time. For others, the pain is so severe or chronic that they must seek out of services of a Woodburn chiropractor for pain management.
Here at Northwood Health Center, we offer pain management services for individuals suffering from back pain.
Back Pain Treatment With Our Chiropractor In Woodburn
Our chiropractor in Woodburn treats back pain with chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, massage therapy and rehabilitative exercises. These treatments and procedures are designed to reduce pain and reliance on prescription and OTC pain medications, promote healing, and improve range of motion.
Pain management starts with an initial visit to our Woodburn chiropractic care clinic. During the initial visit our chiropractor in Woodburn will perform a complete physical examination and take a medical history. We’ll need to know when the pain started, how long the pain lasts and its severity on a scale from 1 to 10. If you suspect your back pain was caused by an injury, we’ll need to know how your back was injured or what you were doing at the time of the injury.
Woodburn chiropractic care with our chiropractor typically starts with a series of chiropractic adjustments. The goal of these adjustments is to realign the spine into its proper position and reduce pain caused by overstressed muscles and ligaments and pinched and compressed nerves and discs.
In addition to Woodburn chiropractic care treatments, we may recommend massage therapy with one of our licensed medical technicians or traditional Chinese medical treatments with our acupuncturist. Massage therapy helps break up scar tissue and promotes complete healing of the muscles and ligaments. It also increases circulation and helps removes excess toxins from the muscles.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical treatment that helps alleviate body and back pain and improves range of motion. It is based on the theory that everyone has “chi”; an energy that flows around and within them. When the chi becomes disrupted, it causes illnesses and pain. The very thin needles used during an acupuncture session release blocked chi and restore the body’s natural harmonic balance. When acupuncture is combined with Woodburn chiropractic care, our patients notice a dramatic increase in the effectiveness of their spinal adjustments.
