Chronic pain can be debilitating, but luckily, chiropractic care can help. Chronic pain is defined as pain that does not respond to normal treatment. If you've tried painkillers and other types of pain treatment without success, it's time to try a more natural, holistic approach to treating your pain. At Optimal Health Chiropractic and Massage Clinic in Edmonds, our chiropractor believes in finding the root cause of your pain, rather than simply putting a band-aid on the problem.
Finding The Cause
Traditional Western medicine attempts to cover up the symptoms, rather than find and fix the root cause of the problem. Chiropractic care takes a different approach. The first thing our chiropractor will do during your first appointment is talk to you about your symptoms, and begin to work to find the root cause of the pain. That way, we can resolve the cause of the pain over time, rather than simply treating the pain, only to have it return or worsen later. We look at our patients as whole people, not simply a collection of symptoms that need to be treated. Our goal is to help your body function more effectively in everyday life.
Long Term Chiropractic Care
It's important to note that chiropractic care is not a one time, quick fix type of treatment. While some patients do report an improvement in their symptoms after the first visit, it may take time and a variety of different chiropractic care techniques to resolve your pain. Our chiropractor will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help to restore your body to its natural, pain-free state. It's likely that our chiropractor will also give you lifestyle changes to implement in order to help your pain, such as nutrition changes, sleep changes, or exercises/ stretches to perform at home between appointments. If you experience an increase in pain at any time, give our office a call so that we can change your treatment plan.
