Chances are, you’ve heard of acupuncture – but do you know how it works? Well-known for its strategic use of needles to reduce pain, acupuncture is an ancient Chinese pain treatment that heals many conditions like neck pain, headaches and back pain. One of our physicians will insert several sterile, disposable needles into your skin. The procedure itself is incredibly relaxing and involves little to no pain. Afterward, it is likely that you’ll notice that your pain is less severe. Overall, this treatment is a great and safe option for anyone facing chronic pain since it can be done in many places on the body.
Also called chiropractic manipulative therapy, chiropractic care focuses on improving the movement of your joints. In some cases, chronic pain is caused by a misalignment of the spine. In theory, chiropractic care will realign the spine, which indirectly relieves your pain. A chiropractor will apply brief, intense pressure on the joints to restore motion and minimize pain. You should consider chiropractic care if you are dealing with joint pain, headaches, fibromyalgia or carpal tunnel syndrome.
While physical therapy shares some similarities with chiropractic care, this pain relief method relies more on exercises. Rather than focusing on realigning the spine, physical therapy works to build muscle strength to release tension that worsens your pain. The exercises may consist of mild aerobic workouts and stretches that target the location of your pain. Physical therapy is often helpful for injuries.
Of course, the above options might not be the ideal treatments for every individual. Sometimes, pain relief is a matter of trial and error and may involve testing out treatments until you find one that works best for you. If you would like to try another pain relief method, schedule an appointment at Motus Integrative Health to see what is available. Our physicians are certified to provide alternative chronic pain treatments like cupping, dry needling, active release techniques and more. These options also work well when used in conjunction with other treatment methods, so it’s important to discuss your treatment options with one of our physicians.
The best way to choose a pain treatment is to get a physical evaluation with one of our physicians. For noninvasive pain relief, medical testing and more, call Motus Integrative Health today to schedule an appointment at our Crown Point or Schererville office.
