Helping Your Back and Neck Pain Naturally
Do you regularly wake up with a crick in your neck that leaves you feeling stiff and unable to turn your head all day? Or perhaps you have a low back ache that started during your pregnancy and never went away. What about lasting neck and back pain from an auto accident that happened years ago? These are all common complains that people deal with every day. But, just because they happen does not mean you should go without relief!
There are a multitude of different causes for back and neck pain, some of which can leave you with aches and discomfort for months or even years. Pain medication can only go so far toward helping your body, and surgery isn’t always an option. If you’re looking for neck and/or back pain treatment that actually seeks to get to the root cause of your pain, rather than simply masking the symptoms, chiropractic treatments and physical therapy may be the help you’ve been looking for. At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa in Peoria, our services are individualized based on your body, health history, and injury to provide better healing care.
How Our Care Differs
For those who have experienced ongoing or regular flare ups of back and neck pain, it can feel like you have tried every remedy your doctor can think of. Pain medication only masks the pain for atime; it doesn’t do much to help your body heal. Surgery can help, but it isn’t always an option, and when it is, it can be both expensive and involve a long recovery process. Chiropractic treatments, especially when combined with physical therapy, seek to provide pain relief and help your injuries heal without invasive procedures. The Senara Health care services focus on spine and joint alignment as well as central nervous system health. This allows us to get to the root cause of your back pain and provide individualized treatments for pain relief and the healing your body needs.
Physical Therapy & Chiropractic Techniques
Chiropractic is not a one-method-fits-all sort of treatment, and neither is physical therapy; it’s why they work so well together. Physical therapy as an umbrella of treatments is actually a combination of different techniques and therapies that can easily be customized to provide individualized treatment. Some of the different techniques include:
- Chiropractic adjustments and alignment
- Massage therapy
- Decompression therapy
- Nutrition counseling and supplements
When you visit Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, your first physical therapy appointment will include a consultation so we can work with you to get to the root cause of your neck or back pain. We will review your medical history with you, perform a few tests, and use all the information we learn to develop a treatment plan for your needs. Our care plan typically includes three phases. Your doctor will start with relief care, because we know how vital pain relief can be toward your overall healing. However, pain relief care isn’t a cure-all, so phase two is corrective care. This is step during which we work to heal the cause of your pain. Finally, phase three is wellness care. It does not take much to get the body out of alignment, which may lead to discomfort or pain. Wellness care usually involves targeted strengthening exercises for you to do at home, as well as other care to ensure your body stays on the path toward good health.
Healing Neck and Back Pain
Physical therapy is not limited to major injuries and ongoing pain. Our techniques focus on spinal and nerve care, so physical therapy can be just as useful against minor sports injuries as it can help healing after an auto accident. Even something as seemingly small as poor posture can cause pain that radiates through your back and into your limbs. With physical therapy sessions combined with chiropractic care, we can ease your spine and joints back into proper alignment, soothe aching muscles, and help your body build up strength for ongoing well-being.
No matter what the cause of your back or neck pain, physical therapy and chiropractic care can offer healing, not just pain relief. At Senara, our goal is to help provide that relief naturally, with non-invasive techniques. Because of this, it means we can help with a wide range of different back injury causes, including:
- Sports and fitness injuries
- Poor posture issues
- Auto and personal injuries
- Pregnancy aches and pain
- Stress-induced discomfort
- Arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other
- Muscle or ligament strains
- Bulging discs, sciatica
This is, by no means, a comprehensive list of all the neck and back pain causes that we can help. At Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa, our focus for every treatment is your individual needs.
