Whether you are suffering with back pain, neck pain, joint pain, or migraines, our team of pain relief specialists can help you find relief.
Irrespective of whether the pain is chronic (lasting 6 months or more) or acute (began or appears suddenly), chiropractic care can help. The expert chiropractors of Advanced Spine & Posture in Grand Rapids, MI have successfully treated thousands of cases of pain, including (but not limited to) pain from injuries or accidents, pain resulting from poor posture or poor workplace ergonomics, pain related to degeneration, or pain originating from congenital conditions.
The most common sites of pain (and what we specialize in treating) are:
- Back pain (lower, middle, or upper)
- Neck pain (front, side, and base of the neck)
- Shoulder pain (front of the shoulders, back of the shoulders, pain upon movement)
- Migraines and headaches
- Feet, ankle, and knee pain
- Hand, wrist, and finger pain
When pain occurs in these locations of the body, it is usually because of damage to the neuromusculoskeletal system, which is preventing the body from balancing and healing itself.
The neuromusculoskeletal system is made up of the nervous system, the muscular system, and the skeletal system. Strains, sprains, misalignment, impact, inflammation, and degeneration all contribute to pain in these systems, which can manifest in many forms and during a wide variety of activities. It’s common to feel pain consistently in a specific area, or to feel it only during a certain movement or in a specific position, like bending, walking, standing, or during a repeated motion (like a tennis swing).
There is a wide variety of pain sensations, but below are some of the most common that we treat:
- Sharp, shooting pain
- Aching pain
- Dull pain
- Pain that feels hot or cold (burning or freezing)
- “Electric shock” pain
- Throbbing pain
- Cramping or cramp-like pain
- Stiffness which induces pain (or vice versa)
Traffic accidents (cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, scooters, etc.) are a common cause of pain that persists chronically. If you’ve ever been in an auto accident or some other form of collision or impact situation, chronic pain you’re experiencing now could very well be related. Pain from an accident or injury doesn’t always happen right away, in fact, it can take months or even years after an accident for pain to appear. An injury that does not receive immediate treatment or sufficient rest and healing time often worsens over time, with inflammation and misalignment slowly increasing.
