Controlling Chronic Pain Through Chiropractic Care in Tacoma

As much as you may dislike the pain of an acute injury or illness, at least you have the comfort of knowing that as you recover the discomfort will pass. Chronic pain in Tacoma, however, offers no such promise. Fortunately, there are ways you can keep this long-term pain under control without becoming reliant on painkillers -- thanks the team at Proctor Chiropractic.

A chronic condition has no clear-cut cure or resolution. Such conditions can present themselves as recurring flare-ups, or they may create constant symptoms for months or years at a stretch. If you suffer a sports injury that does not heal correctly, for example, you may continue to experience pain due to scar tissue buildup, nerve damage or other issues. Other chronic conditions that cause pain include osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis (a narrowing the spinal canal that can cause back pain or refer symptoms to other parts of the body), and fibromyalgia, a condition that causes chronic muscle pain, insomnia, fatigue and headaches. We focus on controlling the pain through regular sessions of chiropractic adjustment, massage (which is especially helpful for relaxing the knots caused by fibromyalgia), nutritional recommendations to ease inflammation, and a variety of other techniques.

Fighting Back with a Wellness Plan

In addition to addressing your pain directly through targeted treatments, our Tacoma chiropractor can also devise a customized wellness program to help you maintain a higher degree of overall well-being. In many cases this can help delay or minimize future flare-ups. Exercises to keep your lumbar area strong and flexible, for instance, can reduce the intensity and frequency of back pain or sciatica attacks.

Wellness care also helps you avoid picking up new conditions that may cause acute or chronic pain. If you want an all-natural way to get the upper hand over your pain, contact us for an initial consultation.
