Chiropractic Q & A
What causes chronic pain?
You can develop chronic pain when an acute injury doesn’t heal the right way. Scar tissue can form in or around the affected joint, leading to inflammation.
You might also have chronic pain if you have an underlying condition that affects your joints, such as osteoarthritis.
The medical experts at East Coast Injury Clinic will determine the cause of your chronic pain and come up with a customized treatment plan.
How does chiropractic care provide pain relief?
Chiropractic care doesn’t focus on treating or alleviating the symptoms of your injury or condition. Instead, it focuses on addressing the cause of chronic pain to provide ongoing relief.
The chiropractic team at East Coast Injury Clinic performs spinal adjustments and other forms of chiropractic care to promote healing and reduce pain. Spinal adjustments realign your spine, relieves the affected nerves, and makes healing easier for damaged discs or tissues.
What can I expect from chiropractic care?
When you come to East Coast Injury Clinic for chiropractic care, you might have manual adjustments done with the use of traction. These adjustments help ensure that your joints are properly aligned.
You shouldn’t experience any pain from these adjustments, although it’s common to have some soreness afterward.
Which kinds of chiropractic care are available?
Depending on the results of your evaluation, your East Coast Injury Clinic chiropractor might recommend including other types of treatment, such as electrical stimulation or ultrasound therapy. These other therapies can be used alone or along with adjustments for improved results.
What is electrical stimulation?
Electrical stimulation involves the use of electrical currents to ease inflammation in your affected muscles. Your chiropractor at East Coast Injury Clinic might recommend this form of treatment in addition to having spinal adjustments done.
What is ultrasound therapy?
Ultrasound therapy involves using sound waves to relieve pain and stiffness in your joints and muscles. Your chiropractor might use this treatment along with chiropractic adjustments as part of your treatment plan.
Ultrasound therapy helps ease back pain and pain in other joints. It also promotes healthy blood flow, which might help your body heal.
