Chiropractic Care for Pain
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive approach that targets the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractic treatments can help treat and even cure many ailments. When you choose chiropractic care, you are choosing an alternative, non-surgical, drug-free option to treat your pain and restore your wellbeing. Chiropractic care is natural and treatments are covered by most insurances.

Chiropractors believe that the spine plays a major role in the overall health of someone’s body. If the spine is out of place, then the rest of the body will be too. The different parts of the body work with each other, and when one part is not functioning properly, then it is very likely that another will not function right either. It is this approach that we take when treating patients. We want to make sure that your whole body works in harmony with itself, and so that’s why we use a number of techniques to treat patients. Each patient’s body is unique, and so each treatment plan will be, too.

As described above, chiropractic care can treat many common ailments. We treat the cause of a problem, rather than the symptoms. So if you find us working on your neck to treat headaches, don’t be surprised. Some of the ailments we treat are listed below:

At Live Healthy Pain Centers, we use variety of approaches to treat whatever has brought you into our clinic.
Manual Adjustment – This is the most common technique we use at Live Healthy Pain Centers. Manual Adjustments are used for spinal manipulation, when we put the spine back into alignment. When the spine is out of place, it affects the entire body. Realigning it can improve problems elsewhere in the body as well. But this can be used on more than just the spine. Manual Adjustments are performed during most chiropractic treatments at Live Healthy Pain Centers.
Activator – This is a hand-held, spring loaded device that is used in more than half of chiropractic clinics around the world. It delivers a quick, localized force to an area, and is frequently used to help treat neck, shoulder, and back pain. It is also used to relieve tension in joints with the goal of improving motion in them. We also utilize this tool in our practice.
Massage – Massage is a helpful partner to chiropractic care as it relaxes the body so that it can then be aligned properly. The art of massage is a treatment approach that has been around for thousands of years and in most major cultures. It is an integral aspect of restoring and repairing the body when it has pain or has been injured. We offer massage at our Apple Valley location, so if you are interested in this form of pain treatment call today at 952-431-5330 for an appointment and start feeling better today!
Electronic Stimulation – This is used to stimulate muscle contractions, which increases blood flow to an area, and, with some types of stimulation, reduces swelling. It also alleviates pain and, when coupled with manual adjustments, can help heal the source of pain.
