Holistic Pain Management in Edison
Dr. Lagana uses a holistic approach to pain management. As a result, your symptoms decrease and your overall wellness improves. Our pain management treatment options include services such as:
Chiropractic Adjustments – Our chiropractor in Edison evaluates the position of your spine and joints to determine if chiropractic adjustments are beneficial for your condition. Most painful conditions such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, headaches, migraines, runner’s knee and tennis elbow respond very well to gentle adjustments. Dr. Lagana positions the vertebrae of your spine to reduce nerve pain and pressure. He also gently adjusts your shoulders, elbows and other joints to improve your range of motion and decrease pain.
Massage Therapy – This helpful approach reduces muscle tension and improves muscular imbalances. Our massage therapist concentrates on painful areas to increase blood flow and healing to the site. As a result, inflammation decreases and so does your pain.
Acupuncture – Tiny needles inserted just beneath the skin’s surface help to improve energy flow and healing toward your painful areas. Acupuncture is also an effective way to restore your mobility.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression – If you are struggling with back pain due to an auto accident injury, sciatica, scoliosis, overuse or a slip and fall, Dr. Lagana may use spinal decompression therapy. This technique works to lengthen your spine and improve the space between the vertebrae. Also beneficial for herniated discs, spinal decompression therapy helps discs return to their natural position.
Physical Therapy – To manage your pain, our health team will show you exercises to improve your strength and flexibility. This restore muscular control and your range of motion while decreasing your pain.
