Chiropractic Care For Chronic Pain Sufferers

In today’s daily living, it would be actually unusual if you didn’t have some kind of pain. Household chores, raising children, work, lack of exercise and even underlying health condition can all contribute to chronic pain. The thing is that, either most people shrug it off thinking it’s just normal to feel sore because they're tired or rely too much on painkillers to get by.

Two Types Of Pain
While it may seem that the pain is the same for every person suffering from it, there are actually two types of it.
  •  Intractable Pain
This term was coined way back in World War II to describe the pain soldiers are going through. This pain is on the severe end of the spectrum where people who suffer from it would describe their life as a living hell due to the constant agony. Morphine or surgery is usually the treatment given to those with intractable pain.  
  • Chronic Pain
This type of pain is usually what patients these days complain about. Patients would describe it as if they have had a pain in certain part of their body for years which doesn’t go away with the usual pain management techniques. This is where a chiropractor can help. Chiropractic care is known for addressing chronic pain symptoms, like inflammation and muscle tension, by using non-surgical treatments such as spinal manipulation.

How Chiropractic Care Helps
Even if you have already consulted your primary health care provider, seeing a chiropractor here in Singapore would also benefit you. Because they may see something that your doctor have missed since chronic pain is usually due to musculoskeletal issues which chiropractors specializes in.

A chiropractic doctor will conduct physical examination in order to arrive with an accurate diagnosis of your pain. Once a chiropractor knows what your pain condition is, he will develop an individualized treatment plan that he’ll explain and suggest to you.
