Chronic pain is frustrating, depressing and debilitating, and it hinders the daily activities of its sufferers. A reduction of or relief from chronic pain is one of the main reasons why people go to chiropractors. Chiropractors can also identify the pain’s ancillary issues. For example, people with constant back pain may compensate by walking with a limp that may lead to hip and knee problems.
The office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic is proficient at diagnosing and treating all chiropractic issues, as well as providing the treatment needed to maintain excellent overall health. We take as much time as you need to address your every concern and clearly explain your options in care.
The treatment plan a chiropractor draws up for you will factor in why (if known) and when the pain started, as well as the degree of your pain. He (or she) will also take into account any issues that might be contributing to your pain, such as your occupation, extracurricular activities, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. He will also talk to you about the scope of your expectations for your rehabilitation and recovery.
A chiropractor’s job includes being his patients’ cheerleader and foundation of hope and encouragement. He knows that many chronic pain victims have been living with it for quite a while. He serves as your healthcare provider as well as your support system, which enables him to make a world of difference in your progress.
Chiropractors know the dangers when chronic pain sufferers rely on narcotic pain medications. Besides impeding a patient’s recovery, opioids pose the risk of addiction, which comes with a whole new list of troubles. The National Institute on Drug Abuse says that almost 50,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2020. Chiropractors do everything within their power to help their patients avoid being part of that horrifying statistic.
