Another blog post from Ann Arbor chiropractor, Mike Tannenbaum, D.C.: Chronic Pain, What To Do About It
Chronic pain. Just about everyday at my Ann Arbor chiropractic office I see new patients with chronic pain. Chronic pain is relatively common. As a matter of fact, approximately 30 percent of adults in the U.S. have experienced chronic pain. Chronic pain is more prevalent then diabetes, cancer and heart disease combined.
In our society chronic pain is often controlled by drugs or surgery. Imagine if you could control/manage chronic pain with out drugs or surgery. Well, for many types of chronic pain conditions you can control the pain by having chiropractic care and of course, chiropractic care doesn't use drugs or surgery. Chiropractic works to improve the health of your muscles, ligaments, joints and other parts of your anatomy. Chronic pain conditions that chiropractic can help with include neck pain, back pain, degenerative disk disease, herniated discs, poor posture leading to pain, sciatica, spondolesthesis, spinal arthritis, headaches and whiplash.
When patients come to my Ann Arbor chiropractic office with a chronic pain condition I perform a physical exam on the patient including tests to diagnose the patient's condition and then set up a treatment plan for the patient that likely includes spinal manipulation, manual therapies and therapeutic exercises.
Study after study has shown that chiropractic care is a very effective in treatment for a variety of chronic pain conditions. So, if you have chronic pain give chiropractic a try!
