Drug-free pain relief for back and neck pain is possible here at Dr. Chad Schleiger's Elkhorn Chiropractic office. Our chiropractor offers pain management as well as chiropractic care and nutrition services so that you can reduce your pain and lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
Managing Neck and Back Pain
Millions of individuals suffer from chronic neck and back pain, and as a result, they take pain medications to numb the pain. Unfortunately, medications do not treat the source of the pain. Our chiropractor strives to not only reduce your pain through holistic methods, but to prompt your body into healing itself. This is accomplished through the use of chiropractic adjustments as well as other treatments.
The adjustments realign the spine into its proper position, which reduces pain by taking the stress and pressure off of the surrounding ligaments and muscles and decompressing and relieving pinched nerves.
The Importance of Stretching
To maintain joint flexibility, improve posture and to prevent injuries, everyone should stretch on a daily basis. However, it’s important to stretch correctly. Between three to five minutes of mild to moderate activity should be performed prior to stretching to reduce the chances of pulling a muscle. Each pose should be held for between 10 seconds and one minute.
Getting Regular Exercise
It is also important to get regular exercise. Exercising on a regular basis can help you control your weight or lose weight and maintain your muscles mass and endurance. It also improves heart and lung health and increases energy.
For individuals who have chronic neck and back pain, participating in regular cardio and weight lifting exercise routines can reduce pain. When the muscles are strong, they are better able to support the skeletal system, which reduces wear and tear on the neck and back.
Are you ready to take your life back, control your pain and start leading an active, healthy lifestyle?
