Chronic pain and fatigue are two of the most common symptoms that our Edison chiropractic care team treats. Chronic pain and fatigue, along with frequent low-grade illness and allergies, are symptoms of a spinal misalignment. A misalignment, also known as a spinal subluxation, can affect patients at any age. While chronic pain is one of the most frequently reported symptoms, general fatigue, illness and allergies are also signs of a subluxation. In fact, many patients come to us and say they no longer feel like themselves, but are not sure what the precise problem is. For many of these patients, an untreated spinal misalignment is the problem.
At BackSmart, our Edison chiropractic care treatment plans follows a whole body approach to pain management and injury rehabilitation. This means that we not only provide relief for you pain symptoms, but also correct the underlying subluxation triggering this pain. For example, lower back pain and leg pain may be symptomatic of a misalignment in the lumbar spine. A herniated or slipped disc may be compressing the sciatic nerve, triggering radiating pain sensations in the lower back, buttock and legs. As long as a subluxation persists in the lumbar spine, pain will continue.
Our integrated approach to treatment uses chiropractic to restore proper alignment to the spine. By correcting the underlying problem, we support whole body health and help eliminate chronic pain. At the same time, complementary therapies like acupuncture, massage treatments
and cold laser therapy can also manage pain symptoms. We find that by integrating complementary therapies, we are best able to relieve our patients’ pain symptoms and support whole body health.
Maintaining proper spinal alignment is also important for managing symptoms like fatigue and illness. In addition to causing pain, subluxations interfere with the central nervous system’s ability to properly send and receive messages between the body’s organs, immune system and brain. These communication problems are manifest as fatigue and illness. Correcting subluxations removes barriers to proper communication. With regular adjustments, our patients report feeling energized throughout the day, sleeping better at night, and focusing better on work.
Fatigue and illness may also by symptomatic of nutritional imbalances. If you eat primarily processed foods high in sugar, sodium and fat, your body is missing out on the vital nutrients it needs to truly thrive. Our nutrition counseling services can help you reset your diet and safely lose weight. Patients also benefit from improved respiratory function, reduced joint pain, and increased energy.
