Pain Management Q&A

What is chiropractic pain management?

Chiropractic pain management is noninvasive spine care to relieve acute or chronic pain. At Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center, Dr. Rardin offers restorative care for the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. 

The majority of back and neck pain and, in fact, many other types of pain starts in the spine. So, pain won’t truly resolve long-term until imbalances and misalignments within the spine are gone. 

Chiropractic pain management uses hands-on spinal correction methods, such as the Diversified and the Logan basic techniques, to discover and correct spinal imbalances. 

In this way, chiropractic care provides remarkably effective pain relief. 

What are the benefits of chiropractic pain management?

Chiropractic pain management offers rapid relief and helps you stay healthy long-term. It is:

  • 100% noninvasive
  • Drug-free
  • Gentle and painless
  • Quick and easy

But the advantages don’t stop there — chiropractic care gives you multiple ways to feel better faster. Dr. Rardin performs chiropractic adjustments alongside other personalized pain management. He prescribes customized exercises to restore and improve your strength and flexibility while reducing your risk of injury. 

Dr. Rardin also provides lifestyle advice to help you optimize your health, avoid pitfalls, and live without pain. 

How often do I need chiropractic care for pain management?

Pain management generally has three phases, including: 

Relief care

Patients who come in with injuries or chronic pain often need relief care two or three times a week for 4-12 weeks. 

This period of treatment focuses on easing intense pain and getting you back to feeling better as soon as possible.

Corrective care

The corrective phase of treatment generally involves appointments 4-8 times a month for 6-24 months. 

The goal of the corrective phase of pain management is to correct spine health and structure problems that are the root causes of pain. It gets you back to 100% health.

Wellness care

Wellness care starts once you’re at optimal health again and your pain is completely gone. It aims to keep your spine healthy and correctly aligned, which helps you avoid future problems. 

In general, wellness care involves short visits one to four times per month.
