At Twisted Spine and Joint Center, our chiropractic care team is proud to provide cutting-edge care to help patients naturally manage pain, heal faster after an injury, and support whole body health. Our core service, chiropractic care, offers a number of health benefits for patients of all ages. Complementary therapies, including spinal decompression therapy and corrective exercises, enhance the benefits of our Plano chiropractic services and help our patients live active, pain-free lives.
If you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, migraines or other chronic pain, chiropractic care is an effective way to manage this pain without the need for medication. When the spine is out of alignment, a slipped or herniated disc may place pressure on nearby nerves, triggering pain. As long as this mechanical misalignment persists, so will a patient’s pain.
While medication can provide temporary relief, medication is not a permanent pain management solution. Prescription painkillers work by numbing the brain’s ability to perceive pain; consequently, when medication wears off, pain will return. Our chiropractic team utilizes the latest correction and adjustment techniques to provide long-lasting pain relief without the need for medication. These “state-of-the-art” techniques help restore proper alignment to the musculoskeletal system, which relieves pressure on the nerves.
Our Plano chiropractic services are also helpful for injury rehabilitation. For example, repetitive motion injuries such as golfer’s elbow may be triggered by a misalignment in the spine. Even a subtle misalignment can affect an individual’s swing, which in turn stresses the tendons in the elbow and triggers pain. In addition to physiotherapy treatments, chiropractic care is important for treatment. Restoring alignment to the musculoskeletal system, together with corrective care exercises, helps to correct the improper motion that was triggering a patient’s pain. Chiropractic care may help to speed the injury rehabilitation process and prevent future injuries.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, some patients may also benefit from spinal decompression therapy. This treatment is especially effective for lower back pain, which can be triggered by lumbar spine compression. Spinal decompression therapy is a cutting-edge technique gently “decompresses” the vertebrae in the spine, creating space for proper alignment. Decompression therapy enhances the benefits of chiropractic adjustments, and is especially effective for relieving pain associated with a herniated disc.
If you are new to our Plano chiropractic services, you may be wondering if chiropractic care is the right choice for your pain management and injury rehabilitation needs. Our chiropractor, Dr. Bryan Stanton, is happy to answer any questions that you may have about our different treatments during an initial diagnostic appointment. During this appointment he will also evaluate your pain or injury and determine whether spinal subluxations are the cause for this pain. We find that combining chiropractic care with complementary therapies, including spinal decompression therapy and corrective exercises, offer the greatest health benefits for our patients.
