Chiropractic Treatments and Pain Management
When patients visit our San Antonio office seeking chiropractic treatments for pain management, Dr. Phillips explains that pain management is a complex journey. Pain is the body’s way of telling you something isn’t right and needs attention, immediately. Transient pain associated with an occasional headache, or sore muscles from an intense workout, often benefits from a couple of days rest and an over-the-counter pain reliever.
When it comes to controlling pain associated with migraines, chronic diseases and traumatic injury, a comprehensive program historically trumps a single treatment plan. Injuries may involve bones, ligaments, muscles and nerves. Chronic conditions impact multiple parts of the body. A whole-body approach is the best path to faster recovery, allowing you to get back to enjoying a pain-free life.
Alternative therapies combined with advanced technology make it possible to customize a treatment plan designed for each patient, which relieves pain quicker and helps you heal faster. Before you embark on a new pain management program, it’s important to identify the source of your pain and find a doctor who understands how to effectively treat the source. Otherwise, you’ll just be masking the pain.

Chiropractic Treatments and Complementary Services
Dr. Phillips’ goal is to help patients utilize all available resources to returning your body to a healthy state that reduces or eliminates pain. We offer routine adjustments (subluxation) and the following pain management treatments for our patients:
Massage sessions support a healthy lifestyle, reduce physical and emotional stress, and help the body heal after trauma.
Deep Tissue Massage: Targets deep layers of muscle and fascia with steady finger pressure and slow, firm strokes. This treatment improves blood circulation throughout the body, reducing inflammation and tension that cause pain. Treatments also support healthy serotonin levels, which help elevate your mood.
Swedish Massage: Is an excellent treatment for people with joint disorders such as osteoarthritis. The therapist uses multiple techniques that target muscles, soft tissues, ligaments and nerves throughout the body. Along with a dramatic reduction in pain, Swedish Massage benefits include:
- Lymph system support that improves nutrition distribution throughout the body and waste removal.
- Enables restorative sleep, which allows your body to heal faster.
- Flushes out toxins in the muscles.
- Improves flexibility and tissue elasticity.
- Promotes relaxation and mood elevation.
Using advanced technology Dr. Phillips helps our San Antonio patients overcome pain associated with disc issues like herniated, bulging or ruptured discs. Spinal decompression involves placing the patient on a traction table and administering a series of gentle stretches alternated with periods of relaxation. This treatment pulls the spine back into healthy alignment, relieving pressure on impinged nerves and stress on the spinal column.+
