Pain Management Clinic San Antonio Chiropractic

If you struggle to manage your pain, we at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness offer natural, ongoing relief that genuinely improves your health.

pain_management_san_antonio.jpg Pain may assume acute or chronic forms. A short-term problem will produce acute pain until the structural problem that produces the pain is corrected. For example, neck pain, shoulder pain or back pain from a car accident may benefit from chiropractic adjustment, massage and physiotherapy. These techniques relieve nerve pressure from misaligned vertebrae, boost circulation to torn muscles, and help damaged tissues rebuild themselves quickly and correctly, thus ending the pain.

Chronic pain typically occurs for more than six months at a time. An incurable condition such as fibromyalgia, for example, may result in constant, chronic pain of varying intensity and location. This particular illness tends to cause trigger points in the form of muscle knots, and these trigger points then refer pain signals to a variety of tender points throughout the body, causing everything from joint pain and muscle pain to headaches and migraines. 

Arthritis is another form of chronic pain that afflicts millions of individuals. This disease takes form of painful joint inflammation and some people who must continuously work in non-ergonomic conditions may suffer from repetitive motion disorders that cause chronic neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, or soft tissue inflammation such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

People suffering from chronic pain must find a way to manage it. Many turn to painkillers as the answer, but these drugs often come with their own set of undesirable or even dangerous side effects. Since these medications dull pain but do nothing to improve the underlying health issue, chronic pain may increase, requiring greater drug dosages to compensate. That's why our pain management clinic offers natural, drug-free methods that not only help you control your pain but also address the problem lurking at the base of it.

Relief for Back/Neck Pain, Headaches, and Migraines

Chiropractic adjustment can prove highly effective in relieving practically any kind of musculoskeletal pain, either permanently or through an ongoing pain management program. Our chiropractor, Dr. Phillips, can screen you for spinal or postural misalignments, pinpoint the precise issues that need correcting, and then apply careful adjustments with just the right amount of force to restore your body to its proper alignment. 

Such corrections can help relieve back pain, neck pain, muscle strain and joint pain caused by nerve impingement or longstanding health problems. We can also apply therapeutic massage as needed to break up painful muscle tension caused by fibromyalgia and many other myofascial conditions from head to toe. Both of these techniques can also help reduce the frequency of chronic headaches and migraines. We can even enhance your pain management plan with lifestyle counseling, exercise and physiotherapy to make your body less prone to future pain.
