Why suffer from chronic or persistent pain when chiropractic care can help?
If you have been dealing with severe neck and back pain, or pain that won’t go away, then chances are good that you’ve tried a variety of simple, at-home measures to help keep your symptoms under control; however, sometimes these conservative treatment options just aren’t enough to ward off pain and discomfort. If neck or back pain is getting to you, our Federal Way, WA, chiropractors, Dr. Andrew Winger and Dr. Frank Rossi, can provide you with the relief and care you’ve been looking for.
You might be surprised to learn that neck and back pain are fairly common complaints, with as much as 85 percent of Americans suffering from one of these symptoms at some point during their lifetime. If your symptoms are enough to affect your physical and mental wellbeing or even your daily activities then it’s time to get these symptoms under control.
Causes of Neck Pain
Injuries, whiplash, degenerative disorders and sprains and strains can all lead to neck stiffness, limited range of motion and pain.
Causes of Back Pain
Sometimes it can be challenging to pinpoint the exact cause of back pain, as there are many factors that can lead to this problem. Everything from strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and being overweight to health problems such as osteoporosis and arthritis can lead to back discomfort, so it’s important to have back pain assessed by a chiropractic doctor if pain is severe or doesn’t go away.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
First and foremost, it’s important for our Federal Way chiropractic specialists to diagnose the source of the pain. We will perform a thorough physical exam, walk through your medical history and determine whether or not imaging tests need to be conducted. Once we have determined the cause, we can then create an effective treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Chiropractic treatment is a great option for many people who are having trouble managing their pain with other methods but don’t want to undergo surgery. Chiropractic care offers a variety of different techniques to improve how the body functions as a whole to reduce pain, swelling and other issues.
Common chiropractic techniques include:
- Manual therapy (also referred to as manual manipulation or manipulative therapy)
- Therapeutic massage
- Trigger point therapy
We may recommend one or several chiropractic therapies to help tackle your neck and back pain. The goal of chiropractic care is to reduce symptoms while improving function, range-of-motion and flexibility.
