Pain Management in Maple Grove, MN
Pain management is one of the biggest concerns we address at Maple Grove Family Chiropractic. People come to our chiropractors, Dr. Blomdahl and Dr. Zaker, with a variety of medical issues. No two people have the same pain problems or health goals. That’s why we take an individualized, holistic approach to healthcare. We look for the root cause of your pain and develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
What’s Causing Your Pain?
In some cases, such as a sports injury, it’s clear what caused the discomfort you are experiencing. Other times the pain may have crept up on you without an obvious cause. That’s why personalized chiropractic treatments are preferable to simply taking a painkiller since a pill only masks the symptoms. A chiropractor can track down the root cause and help you heal while receiving long-lasting pain relief. Here are a few of the most common causes of pain in different areas of the body:
Headaches are often caused by muscle tension, chronic stress, nutritional deficiencies, and migraines.
Neck pain can be caused by poor posture, weak upper back muscles, whiplash, and pinched nerves.
Back pain can result from work-related injuries, muscle imbalances, pinched nerves, herniated discs, or sleeping on an unsupportive mattress.
Sciatica is due to the sciatic nerve being pinched, compressed, or irritated.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a repetitive stress injury, often from the workplace or playing sports.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Chiropractors can use strategic pressure and adjustments to realign your spine and major joints. These adjustments reduce the pressure on your nerves and stress on the muscles. We may also use other techniques like massage therapy. Massages increase blood flow, unlock knotted muscles, and release natural painkillers such as endorphins.
Alongside these direct pain-relieving treatments, chiropractors are also concerned with your wellness as a whole. We may suggest adjusting your nutrition to improve your healing process. We may also suggest exercises to strengthen your body so you’re less likely to get re-injured. Chiropractors can also help you troubleshoot your home and office environment to improve your posture when you’re sitting at a desk or doing household tasks.
Finally, we may suggest ways to get a good night’s sleep. This could be through sleep-promoting products, aromatherapy, or other methods. A lot of healing of the mind and body is done at night, making sleep a critical piece of the wellness puzzle.
