Yorkville Pain Management
Natural Pain Management for Neck and Back Pain
At Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, we follow a whole body approach to pain management. Rather than using medication to “cover up” symptoms, we address the underlying cause and pain triggers. We also recognize that there is no single “solution” to pain. Effectively managing pain requires an integrated approach that combines the best therapies for each patient’s unique needs.
If your pain is caused by a spinal misalignment, chiropractic adjustments can help. For example, patients suffering from sciatica pain may have a herniated disc in the lower spine. If this disc pinches or compresses the sciatic nerve, this can trigger radiating pain in the legs, buttocks and lower back. The most effective approach is to address the spinal misalignment. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore proper alignment and relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve.
As a full-service family practice, our wellness center offers comprehensive treatments, including physical therapy and massage therapy. We frequently integrate these treatments with chiropractic adjustments for enhanced back and neck pain relief. For example, massage therapy can help restore movement to the body without aggravating existing injuries. When tension is trapped within the muscles and connective tissues, the muscles will further contract, causing additional stiffness and pain. By releasing tension trapped deep within the muscles, massage therapy helps to lengthen the muscles and restore flexibility. Deep tissue massage is very effective for managing back pain, shoulder pain and more.
