At Four Points Family Chiropractic in Austin, Dr. Ross Coccimiglio, Dr. Tom Neblett, Dr. Mary Elder, and our team offer various chronic pain treatments. Let's take a look at some of the treatment modalities that we use to help our patients.
Chiropractic adjustments are a form of manual therapy that can help relieve pain and enhance movement. This natural alternative to medications and surgery works directly on the body's nerves and joints, providing immediate results.
Spinal manipulation is a pain management chiropractor's technique to correct spinal misalignments. The adjustment can be performed manually or with an activator adjusting instrument that sends low-force impulses directly onto the spine. Chiropractic adjustments have proven beneficial for patients suffering from various health conditions such as neck pain, headaches, joint pain, and sciatica.
Massage is a non-invasive therapy that can help alleviate pain. Depending on the massage you receive, it may also improve circulation and prevent swelling near a surgery site. Among the chronic pain treatments, massage has been shown to alleviate stress, anxiety, sleep problems, and other health concerns while increasing relaxation and well-being.
The initial technique employed in massage is known as effleurage or sliding strokes. This involves the hands passing over a client's body rhythmically and continuously with varying tempo and pressure. Massage can be invaluable to chiropractic treatment, helping realign the spine and relax muscles. Fortunately, the team at Four Points Family Chiropractic in Austin, TX, includes a highly experienced massage therapist whose techniques complement chronic pain treatments.
Acupuncture is an effective and often safe treatment that can help alleviate various symptoms. It is an Eastern medicine therapy that utilizes sterile needles to stimulate specific points in the body with needles.
Before your acupuncture session begins, you'll be asked to lie down or sit on a padded table as an acupuncturist strategically inserts several hair-thin needles around your body. Most people experience mild sensations, such as getting blood drawn. The needles can cause involuntary muscle twitching or a "fluttery" sensation at or near the needling site.
Chiropractic treatment is a holistic approach that treats the individual and often provides lasting relief from chronic pain. Specifically, chiropractic care emphasizes a wellness lifestyle as a vital element to ensure your body operates optimally. This lifestyle should include proper posture, regular exercise, and nutritious eating. Maintaining good posture can reduce or eliminate chronic back and neck pain by correcting an incorrect sitting position. It may also help lower the risk of heart disease, obesity, and other health issues.
