Chiropractic Care For Pain Management

Many patients seek our Oakleigh chiropractic care for help with chronic pain. Our goal is to help alleviate symptoms of chronic conditions, enabling patients to achieve better quality of life. Many of our patients suffer from musculoskeletal conditions, fibromyalgia, arthritis, or chronic pain following injuries sustained in a car accident or while playing sports.

Chronic pain can be a very frustrating condition. Patients living with chronic pain often become discouraged when conventional pain management treatments such as medication don't work. Sometimes, medical professionals dismiss their pain as emotional or psychological, particularly when a specific physical cause cannot be pinpointed. Chronic pain syndromes like fibromyalgia have historically been ignored by some medical professionals. Meanwhile, pain in whiplash patients extending far from the original injury site has been met with skepticism.

Today, it is known that pain syndromes and trauma can negatively impact the central nervous system, causing long-term issues through a process called central sensitization. According to scientific research, ongoing pain can make the nervous system overly sensitized to pain signals, resulting in widespread chronic pain.

Oakleigh chiropractor Dr Liveriadis can help patients overcome this nervous system dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments will correct subluxations underlying your chronic pain. The treatments we offer have been shown to reduce symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia and other pain syndromes. Treating chronic pain requires a multi-modality treatment approach including such techniques as chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy. In addition to these chiropractic approaches, exercise therapy is another method proven to relieve the pain caused by fibromyalgia, arthritis, and musculoskeletal disorders.

At North Road Chiropractic, we provide pain management treatments for patients in Oakleigh, East Bentleigh, Mt. Waverley, and Clayton. If you are living with a chronic pain condition and are interested in learning more about ways chiropractic care can improve your health, call us today.
