Acute pain can put your entire life on hold until the source of the pain finally resolves itself -- and in the case of chronic conditions, that day may never come. If you're sick and tired and enduring a reduced quality of life, it's time you turned to our Roanoke chiropractor, Dr. Rhodes. Performance Healthcare can provide a number of safe, drug-free techniques for pain management and pain relief in Roanoke, from spinal adjustments to scar tissue treatment.
Pain can be both a clear and present force in your life and an elusive problem to solve. That's because even the sharpest, clearest pain in any given part of the body may actually be referred along nerve pathways from an injury or structural issue somewhere else. Sciatica is a prime example -- a pinched sciatic nerve root near the lumbar spine firing pain signals through the largest nerve in the leg to produce intense leg pain. Spinal misalignments, herniated discs and pinched nerves can easily cause this type of pain. Strained muscles and connective tissues typically produce localized pain, but they also tug on sensitive membranes that refer pain signals elsewhere. (This is the case with many tension headaches.) Scenarios that can lead to acute or chronic pain include:
Traumatic injuries that damage muscles and connective tissue, push spinal joints out of alignment and allow discs to press against nerve tissue
Degenerative spinal diseases such as bulging discs, spinal stenosis, arthritis of the spinal joints and spondylolisthesis
Chronic pain disorders such as fibromyalgia that cause painful muscle knots
Accumulations of scar tissue called adhesions that "glue" soft tissues together and make motion painful
Whatever the source of your pain may be, our chiropractor in Roanoke can identify it and guide you toward the right course of treatment. Even the most painful conditions can often be resolved or controlled through non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical means. Our Roanoke pain management and relief methods include:
Chiropractic adjustment - Chiropractic adjustment can take stress off of spinal joints to restore pain-free motion while also permitting normal musculoskeletal balance and nerve function.
Massage therapy - Massage therapy can release chronic muscle knots and soothe injured soft tissues.
Graston Technique - Our chiropractor in Roanoke VA uses the Graston Technique to free tissues trapped by adhesions.
Spinal decompression - This non-surgical technique corrects disc problems and relieves pinched nerves.
SpiderTech tape - SpiderTech kinesiology tape stimulates tissues to reduce pain signals.
FootLevers orthotics - These custom orthotics can correct imbalances that cause foot pain or pain in other weight-bearing joints.
Nutritional counseling - We can recommend nutritional supplements and dietary choices that convey natural anti-inflammatory benefits and speed healing of painful injuries.
