Pain Management can help relieve back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain which stop you from living an active life. At Physicians Plus, our Joliet pain management can help you relieve aches and injuries naturally through chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments address the underlying cause for injuries, while also improving the communication of the nervous system. Regular adjustments promote proper alignment and are an important part of any long-term pain management program.
Many of our patients suffer sciatica and back injuries due to a herniated disc. Joliet pain management physicians at Physicians Plus get you on your feet in no time. A slip and fall or an accident injury may all cause a disc to slip out of alignment. When a disc is out of alignment, it may compress nearby nerves. This pressure on the nerve prevents the nervous system from properly sending and receiving messages from the brain. Instead, patients experience chronic pain symptoms. For example, if a herniated disc compresses the sciatic nerves, patients may experience a radiating pain sensation or numbness along the legs, buttock and lower back.
At Physicians Plus, Joliet chiropractors provide natural pain management by addressing the underlying cause for you pain, such as a herniated disc. We believe in a whole body approach to pain management. Our integrated treatment approach combines chiropractic adjustments with corrective exercises and lifestyle advice. This comprehensive approach brings balance and health back to the body.
Joliet patients choose our Chicago practice because of our success providing pain management for injuries. Our team can address pain caused by a spinal misalignment as well as a soft tissue injury. When the body is injured, it will naturally compensate by shifting weight and pressure away from the injury. Unfortunately, this can strain other muscles and further worsen a misalignment. This is why chiropractic care and corrective exercises are so important for long-term pain management. By achieving and maintaining proper alignment, spinal adjustments provide the body with a strong, healthy foundation.
We also help patients with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia. This painful condition is characterized by tenderness and pain at points throughout the body. Many patients also struggle with headaches, exhaustion and insomnia. While we cannot "cure" fibromyalgia, regular adjustments can help manage factors that contribute to this pain. Many of our patients are able to manage their fibromyalgia pain through our natural treatments, and no longer depend upon medication.
Our Joliet wellness team understands that each patient experiences pain differently. That's why we tailor every treatment to meet the individual needs of each patient. During your first diagnostic visit, our chiropractor will discuss you injuries and long-term wellness goals. We will then create a custom plan designed to help naturally manage your pain. Depending on your injury, your long-term pain management needs may change over time. We work closely with each patient to monitor their overall well being and provide targeted, effective relief.
Our practice works closely with insurance companies, attorneys, medical professionals, and workers' compensation claims. We are committed to helping you receive the care you deserve and your body needs. If you are struggling with chronic back or neck pain, effective pain management is just a phone call away.
