Pain Management Q & A

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain goes on and on and doesn’t resolve within a certain time frame. It usually doesn’t respond to traditional pain management techniques, including medications. As a chiropractor, Dr. Lobacz can treat chronic pain without medication, but with physical adjustments and lifestyle guidance.

What types of pain can chiropractic care treat?

Much of chiropractic care centers around the spine and in managing your back pain. However, chiropractic has other applications as well, including:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Shoulder and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash

What chiropractic techniques are used for pain management?

Dr. Lobacz uses spinal manipulation and adjustments to help realign the spine and open up channels in your nervous system. This promotes your body’s own self-healing mechanisms. He also employs other manual therapies, postural and exercise education, ergonomic training, nutritional guidance, and lifestyle consultation to help you reduce the causes of pain in your body. Dr. Lobacz’s ultimate goal is to help you live the healthiest, most comfortable life possible.

What are the benefits of using chiropractic care for pain management?

Because chiropractic care relies on non-drug therapies, you don’t have the risk of addiction or side effects that come with many pain medications. Chiropractic helps your body heal itself and relies on natural therapies. It gets at the source of your pain, rather than simply treating your symptoms. Instead of covering up your symptoms, chiropractic helps promote healing at a deep, cellular level.

Long-term chiropractic care also prevents pain from recurring. Dr. Lobacz can set up a treatment plan that keeps you feeling good and functioning optimally for the long term.

What is spinal manipulation?

Spinal manipulation usually refers to the therapeutic movement of the spine. Dr. Lobacz applies quick, strong pressure on a joint between two vertebrae in the spine. The exact level of force and location of the adjustments depends on your symptoms and the cause of your pain.The adjustments relieve pressure on nerves to reduce pain. It can also help improve the way you hold your body, reducing muscle tension and imbalances that contribute to pain.
