Pain Management

Yorkville Pain Management


Pain management is one of the key benefits to receiving chiropractic care. Chronic pain may gradually develop over time. One day, it may be too painful to walk up and down stairs, sit for extended periods, or even bend over to pick something up off the ground. For other patients, neck or back pain can occur suddenly as the result of a car accident injury or workplace injury. No matter the cause, our Yorkville chiropractor can provide real pain relief– without medication or surgery.

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.

During your first visit, our chiropractor will take a full medical history and evaluate your pain symptoms and possible causes. For many patients, a combination of conditions may be triggering pain. For example, an untreated whiplash injury may be triggering neck pain and headaches. Sore and stiff neck muscles may be exacerbating this pain, causing further discomfort. Our integrated approach to treatment will address symptoms along with the underlying cause for a comprehensive look at a pain management solution.

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.

For other patients, a chronic health condition like fibromyalgia may be triggering pain. While chiropractic care cannot “cure” fibromyalgia, we can help alleviate many of the symptoms by minimizing pain caused by trigger points. For example, regular adjustments help support proper spinal alignment, which may minimize the occurrence of headaches, back pain and overall tenderness. 


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.

Don't let chronic pain prevent you from leading an active life. Allow our chiropractor to create a pain management plan that works best for you.
