Why You Should Not Overlook Chiropractic Care for Relieving Pain

Why You Should Not Overlook Chiropractic Care for Relieving Pain

Are you in pain more often than not? More than 20% of adults experience chronic pain. This can make everyday tasks like tying your shoes, eating, and sleeping painful. 

Don’t put off getting professional help. If your pain goes untreated, it can result in more serious health conditions like nerve irritation, tissue degradation, and even cardiovascular problems. 

You don’t have to live in pain anymore – you can undergo chiropractic care with Yvonne Hernandez, DC at Texas Wellness Clinic, located in Richmond, Texas. We’re here to help you be comfortable and happy for many years to come.

What causes back pain?

You use your back for almost every movement, and it undergoes much wear-and-tear as you age. Back pain is one of the most common reasons a patient comes into our office for chiropractic care. It’s one of the most common disabilities and the reason many people opt out of work.

Back pain may be caused by:

Although back pain is common and can happen at any age, persistent back pain is a sign of an underlying problem. Seeking chiropractic care is the best way to diagnose and improve back and other types of pain.

What you should know about chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is focused on your body’s structure, specifically the spine. Dr. Hernandez focuses on manipulating your body’s alignment to get rid of pain and improve overall function. 

Dr. Hernandez believes that you need a proper alignment of your spine and other musculoskeletal tissues to feel your best. One of the most common types of care she uses involves spinal manipulation. This treatment allows your spine to heal itself without undergoing surgery or taking medication.

Some other treatments Dr. Hernandez may suggest include:

Everyone’s body is different. The best way to see what treatment is right for you is by meeting with Dr. Hernandez. During your consultation, she reviews your health history and designs a custom chiropractic program to best suit your needs.

Reasons to choose a chiropractor

A chiropractor can help the pain; seeing a chiropractor is in your best interest. Here’s why:

  1. Early diagnosis

Sometimes you don’t experience pain until a long time after the problem has started. Chiropractic care can pinpoint the pain before it has even taken place in your body. 

Even if you don’t experience pain, that doesn’t mean your body is in tiptop shape. In fact, chiropractic care isn’t just for people in pain and is equally as important to start as a preventative measure. The best way to take action for your health is by scheduling regular sessions with your chiropractor to obtain optimal health and well-being.

  1. Full-body treatment

Chiropractors don’t just treat your back; they also work on helping your entire body function. Other health conditions chiropractors improve include headaches, neck pain, joint injuries, and more. Chiropractors are experts in musculoskeletal problems and can effectively treat a variety of them, while also informing you on how to improve lifestyle factors.

  1. Drug-free treatment

Many patients prefer to go the drug-free way to avoid dependence or negative side effects. Chiropractors work to address the source of pain, which is more beneficial than just reducing pain. 

  1. Alternative to surgery

No one wants to undergo surgery. Some patients may have been told that a herniated disc can only be improved by surgery. But with a good chiropractor, surgeries can often be avoided, and the pain can be improved with corrective, noninvasive treatments.

Texas Wellness Clinic has a team of chiropractors and doctors to best address your pain. No matter how severe your pain is, we have a treatment option for you. Call 361-298-3362 to schedule your free consultation or book online.
