|Chiropractic Care and Chronic Pain
Chiropractic care is an essential component of a broad-based approach to the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain. Medication alone is never an effective solution to chronic pain as it does not address the root causes of the problem. On the other hand, if biomechanical issues are part of the overall cause, chiropractic care is able to provide a great deal of benefit.
Chronic musculoskeletal pain often has its origins in spinal misalignments. These restrictions in spinal joint mobility may be due to long-term postural inefficiencies or to an old injury - a fall, a motor vehicle accident, or a bending-and-lifting back spasm that took a long time to heal. If spinal misalignments persist, other structures begin to compensate. Sacroiliac joints and ligaments get tight. Hip joints lose some mobility. Knee and ankle motion are compromised, and eventually chronic back pain, hip pain, and/or knee pain develops.
Chiropractic care addresses the cause of these many problems by analyzing, identifying, and correcting spinal alignments. As the biomechanical function of your spine improves, so does the mobility of all other weight-bearing joint such as your hips, knees, and ankles. As a direct result, chronic pain begins to reduce and resolve.
