One of the most common reasons that people book a chiropractic care appointment is because they are experiencing some kind of chronic pain.
Whether this pain is constant, has persisted for 6 months or longer, or has suddenly flared up as the result of an injury or accident, chiropractic care can help. Our Advanced Spine and Posture chiropractors of Henderson, NV specialize in providing relief from pain, irrespective of the cause.
Types of pain that we frequently treat are back pain (lower, middle, or upper), neck pain (front, sides, and base of the neck), shoulder pain (front and back), migraines and headaches, feet, ankle, and knee pain, and hand, wrist, and finger pain.
Pain that occurs in these areas is usually the product of imbalances and damage to the neuromusculoskeletal system. The neuromusculoskeletal system comprises the nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems. Pain occurs in these areas because of strains, sprains, misalignment, impact, inflammation, degeneration (for example, from arthritis), and accidents. Pain can emerge during specific activities (like bending, walking, standing, or during a specific repeated motion like a golf swing), or simply persist chronically irrespective of the activity.
There are many kinds of pain sensations, but the ones we see most often are sharp, shooting pains, aching or dull pain, pain that feels hot or cold (burning or freezing), numbness, tingling, throbbing, “electric shock” pain, and cramping or stiffness-induced pain.
Accidents, for example car accidents and motorcycle collisions, are a common reason for persistent or acute pain. Many people don’t realize that pain from an accident or injury doesn’t always occur immediately—it can arise months or even years after the initial incident. This is particularly common in the case of what seem like “minor” strains and sprains, which later turn into full back spasms and muscle weakness or loss of control. An injury that is not treated or given sufficient time to recover can often magnify in severity; inflammation building slowly over time.
At Advanced Spine and Posture of Henderson, NV, our entire team is committed to helping you find pain relief. Upon your initial visit, you will receive a complete assessment from a chiropractor, often in collaboration with another of the wellness experts in our office (physical therapist, physician’s assistant, etc.). Your first appointment will help us to determine where your pain is occurring, as well as the best modality we have available to treat it.
Utilizing an advanced digital analysis, a complete visual and postural assessment, and a series of targeted x-rays, we investigate the symptoms of pain that you describe to us. It’s important to provide our team with a complete wellness history, which often reveals the triggering incident of the pain.
In addition to treating the cause of your pain, our Henderson, NV team is also dedicated to alleviating the conditions that contribute to discomfort. Specifically, this often includes postural concerns, which often are the root cause for lower, middle, and upper back pain, as well as pain in the neck, shoulders, hips, and head.
