Durham Pain Management Services: Natural Relief with Chiropractic Care
Customized Back and Neck Pain Management Solutions
If you are new to chiropractic care, it is natural to wonder if these treatments can truly help manage your pain. We are confident that our patient-proven adjustment techniques can make a difference for your health! This is because our treatments address the underlying triggers for your pain, rather than relying on medication to “mask” pain symptoms. Prescription painkillers and other drugs interfere with the brain’s ability to process pain signals. Once these drugs wear off, however, back and neck pain will return. Chiropractic care is different. Spinal adjustments restore proper alignment to the musculoskeletal system, relieving pressure on nerves and providing long-term back and neck pain relief.
Dr. Leidich creates customized Durham pain management plans that are tailored to each patient’s back and neck pain relief needs. We start by diagnosing the precise cause for your pain. For many patients, their pain is triggered by a spinal misalignment. For example, a whiplash car accident injury can cause a misalignment of the cervical spine. If a disc slips out of position, it may place pressure on nearby nerves, causing a pinched nerve. This nerve then triggers pain. Whiplash injuries can cause recurring headaches, migraines and neck pain. Chronic low back pain can also be triggered by an accident injury. Poor posture can exacerbate low back pain, compressing the lumbar spine and triggering ongoing health problems.
If you suffer from fibromyalgia or other chronic pain conditions, regular chiropractic adjustments can also help manage your pain. While chiropractic care cannot “cure” fibromyalgia, regular adjustments do help to minimize symptoms associated with this pain condition. Patients with fibromyalgia experience widespread pain and tenderness at specific points along the body. By maintaining proper spinal alignment, adjustments reduce interference between the brain and the body, which may help to reduce the intensity of pain symptoms.
