    Chiropractic Treatment:  Taking A Natural Systemic Approach To Healing

    Chiropractic is so much more than a medical field specialty.  It is an overall way of looking at the human body. It’s based on the idea that the body is both self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.  How do you get your body back to working at a better level?  One way is chiropractic treatment.  

    Chiropractic treatment involves the manual manipulation of joints, particularly in the neck and spine, with the aim of properly aligning them. When joints are properly aligned they move more fluidly, which means that a patient will have better flexibility while also having less joint pain. Whether a patient goes in for chiropractic treatment due to an injury, or they suffer from a chronic condition such as arthritis, a good deal of benefit can be had through simple joint manipulation and alignment.

    A Chiropractor Can Help Relieve Pain

    There are many different causes of pain from illness to injury.  Over time, pain becomes something that we deal with, but often in the worst way possible. Most people, if they want headache relief for example, reach for the aspirin, ibuprofen, or other over the counter pain reliever.  In some cases, someone reaches for prescription painkillers.  Both over the counter pain medication and prescription painkillers have cumulative side effects including liver damage and compromised immune systems.   

    What a lot of people don't know is that something like a subluxation can cause your body to experience pain.  For example, if you have a pinched sciatic nerve, you could find yourself in a lot of pain.  Sciatica is pain that is often very severe in nature, that is caused by nerve compression often as a result of a bulging disc(s) in a patient's back. While many patients resort to surgical intervention for dealing with Sciatica, Chiropractic treatment is usually a much better option. Through simple joint manipulation, a Chiropractor can usually relieve pressure on the nerves that are causing the issue, thus alleviating a patient's pain. 

    Chiropractic Treatment Can Help With Neck And Back Injuries

    While Sciatica is the most well-known type of back pain that a chiropractor can treat, it is not the only type of back pain that we treat. One of the main health benefits of going to a chiropractor is that they will help to improve your posture by manipulating and adjusting the vertebrate in your neck and back so that they align properly. Many people have no idea that reason that their back or neck hurts all the time is a result of poor posture and muscular imbalance. This is another example of a situation when chiropractic treatment can actually cure a patient instead of just treating their symptoms.

    One common cause of neck and back pain is if you've been injured in an auto accident.  If someone rear ends your car or truck, while your air bag and seat belt can save  your life, it won't help to keep you immobile.  If you watch videos of a simulated rear-end collision,  you can see the sobering effect that such a collision can have on your back and neck. 

    Chiropractic treatment is so much more than you might think.  A chiropractor can help you with physical rehab, weight loss, and so much more.  It all begins with a call to your chiropractor in Gilbert.

  • Pain is a survival mechanism that is still wired into us. But pain should never rule our lives. So whether your pain is due to an injury, an illness, or both, then maybe it's time to do more than medicate it. Maybe it's time to schedule an appointment for a pain management consultation. Our 360° approach to wellness helps you reduce, or in some cases, eliminate your dependence on aspirin, acetaminophen, or other pain relievers.

    Manage Your Pain With Your Chiropractic Care & More

    Most people automatically think that the only areas that a chiropractor can help with are your back and neck. While a chiropractor can help with pain management in those areas, they can also help you with other areas to improve your health and well being. What's more, at Pivonka Health & Wellness, our chiropractors often collaborate with primary care physicians, pain specialists, and even surgeons to help patients overcome their challenges with pain.  In many cases, patients find pain relief in our clinic because of our integrated approach to feeling better. Our clinic is staffed with chiropractors, pain management experts, physical rehabilitation providers, and even nutritional counselors that work in conjunction to get you feeling better fast.

    A key thing to note here is that if a chiropractor can help you to the point that you no longer need pain medication or at the very least, require less, then your overall health will improve significantly.  Regardless of whether your pain is caused by illness or an injury, pain is essentially inflammation in your body. When you injure yourself, your body automatically stimulates pain receptors.  Most people reach for a prescription or over the counter remedy for a way to alleviate the symptoms without treating the cause of their pain, but what a lot of people don't know is that even using over the counter pain medication can have a negative impact on your body if you use it too much.  The same can't be said for employing chiropractor for pain management.  

    Relieving Chronic Pain: Chiropractic Can Help.

    A chiropractor is more than just someone who puts you on a rolfing machine to help with disc decompression. Chiropractic can help with ailments such as pinched nerves or sciatica for example. A chiropractor can help patients suffering from arthritis and they can even help with headache relief as well. The important thing to note about why you should try chiropractic treatment for pain management is the fact that we are going to treat you based on the holistic, or whole body approach. 

    We find out what's causing your pain, what your pain level is, and what other actions are you taking to manage your pain. We determine if your pain is due to an injury or an illness, and whether the pain is is musculoskeletal or whether it is more related to nerve inflammation or damage.

    There are several musculoskeletal disorders that can be the root cause of any pain you might be experiencing. According to healthline.com: " Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are conditions that can affect your muscles, bones, and joints. MSDs include: tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), fibromyalgia, bone fractures, and more. MSDs are common and your risk of developing them increases with age. The severity of MSDs can vary. In some cases, they cause pain and discomfort that interferes with everyday activities. Early diagnosis and treatment may help ease symptoms and improve long-term outlook.
