Pain Management in Tacoma

Pain Management in Tacoma WA


Has chronic back pain or neck pain made your daily life nearly impossible to live? If you are dealing with chronic pain due to a medical health condition or an accident injury, it is natural to feel frustrated and overwhelmed. Traditional medical solutions, such as prescription painkillers, are limited in their effectiveness. Surgery can be risky, and, in the case of back surgery, may even do more harm than good. You deserve a long-term pain management solution that will not only relieve your pain, but also help you return to an active lifestyle. This is why it is so important to visit our chiropractor at Proctor Chiropractic following a car accident injury, workplace injury or sports injury. Our non-invasive, drug-free approach to pain management will help relieve your pain and get you back to health!

Pain Relief for Neck Pain & Back Pain for Tacoma Chiropractic Patients

The first step to effective neck and back pain management is to identify the underlying trigger for your health problems. For example, after a car accident injury, many patients experience neck pain, headaches and migraines due to a whiplash injury. If you are experiencing chronic back and neck pain, it is like caused by a spinal misalignment. Our chiropractor uses advanced diagnostic technology to precisely identify the location of this spinal misalignment. Once this location has been identified, chiropractic adjustments are a gentle, non-invasive treatment technique that will bring alignment back to the spine and relieve your pain.

A misaligned spine compresses nearby nerves and muscles, causing pain. As long as this misalignment persists, nerve compression will continue and you will experience pain. This is why medication is limited in its effectiveness. Prescription painkillers provide temporary relief for pain by masking the pain symptoms. These medications numb the brain’s ability to sense and process pain, while the underlying injury remains. Consequently, as soon as the medication wears off, the pain returns. Medication is a temporary treatment, not a long-term solution. Additionally, long-term use of prescription painkillers can lead to even greater problems than chronic pain. If you are suffering from chronic pain, you deserve a permanent solution that will address your pain without any detrimental health effects.

Our chiropractor has been using non-invasive chiropractic adjustments as a successful pain management technique for thousands of patients. We also offer massage therapy as a natural complement to chiropractic adjustments. Massage therapy releases tension that is trapped within the muscles, allowing them to relax and return to normal movement patterns.

Chronic back pain and neck pain will not simply “go away” over time. In fact, without effective treatment, this pain may worsen. Chiropractic care and massage therapy treat the underlying spinal misalignments that are responsible for your neck and back pain, rather than masking the symptoms with medication.
