From Chiropractic to Physical Rehab: Natural Pain Relief Alternatives You Can Trust

Written By Gulf Coast Injury Center on September 18, 2018

When someone suffering from painful symptoms, what’s one of the first things they are offered? Painkillers.

However, in addition to being highly addictive, painkillers may only succeed in “masking” the pain.

Therefore, effective treatments are often delayed and full recovery isn’t achieved. This leads to ongoing side effects and the possibility of life-long complications. 

But if you want to take charge of your health and find natural solutions, that’s where chiropractic care can help. 

Why Choose Natural Pain Relief Alternatives? 

Every day, over 100 people die in the U.S. due to opioid use. 

Natural alternatives to pain can put a stop to this. 

They can help those whose pain isn’t getting better with opioids, those who are addicted to opioids, and those who want a natural, alternative approach to their pain. 

Natural Pain Relief Is Available at Your Local Chiropractic Clinic

Chiropractors are able to provide a plethora of different techniques that are far more natural than medication. These include: 

1. Chiropractic Care

This works to realign your musculoskeletal structure and help your body naturally heal itself. Your chiropractor will use their hands to apply gentle pressure to the target areas. This works to provide pain relief and remobilize joints, hence why it can be used to treat headaches, repetitive strain, tissue injuries, and more. 

2. Spinal Decompression 

Spinal decompression uses a traction and relaxation technique that’s designed to reduce any pressure on your spine. This also encourages an influx of all the essential nutrients, oxygen, and water your spine needs to heal itself. It’s used to treat problems with spinal discs, sciatica, stenosis, and can help you recover from surgery. 

3. Massage Therapy

Using various massage techniques, including sports massage and Swedish massage, this type of therapy helps boost blood circulation, eradicate pain, and lower your blood pressure. It’s also a great way to relax and does wonders for your well-being. 

4. Physical Rehab 

This tends to be recommended when you have an illness or injury that’s stopping you from doing day-to-day things. It targets bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles to reduce pain and improve your mobility.
