Here at DuPage Health & Wellness, we are committed to helping you lower your pain and improving your overall health and wellness. One of the ways we help fascinate wellness is through chiropractic care, which is a non-invasive set of treatment options that is designed to improve joint function, reduce inflammation and decrease recovery times.
Chiropractic care treats soft tissue injuries. The soft tissues in the body include the muscles, ligaments, tendons and connecting tissues. The spinal or chiropractic adjustment is the most common chiropractic treatment, and there are several different types of techniques that chiropractors can choose from when deciding the best way to adjust a patient, including the diversified, Flexion Distraction, Thompson and Gonstead techniques. All of these techniques involve using a short, swift thrust to reposition the joint. The differences in techniques depends on the amount of force used, the position of the individual receiving treatment and whether or not a specially designed chiropractic table was used to aid the adjustment.
Chiropractic care offers several benefits for individuals suffering from a myriad of acute and chronic conditions. There are no side-effects associated with the treatments, and they do not interfere with medications or conventional medical treatment.
Chiropractic Adjustments and care in Glen Ellyn can help lower the symptoms associated with many chronic and acute injuries and conditions so that you can feel better faster.
Back and Neck Pain
Severe back and neck pain are the primary reasons individuals visit chiropractors, and here at DuPage Health & Wellness, we understand the strong desire to find treatment options that do not involve copious amounts of potentially addictive pain medications or surgery. Chiropractic adjustments can help heal bulging and herniated discs, whiplash, headaches and sciatica. They can also reduce the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
Sports injuries can occur suddenly or over a period of weeks and months. Chiropractic care is effective at reducing inflammation and increasing the rate at which the body heals itself. Common sports injuries treated with chiropractic care include sprains and strains, tennis elbow, runner's knee, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome and back pain.
Our Glen Ellyn chiropractor can help reduce your pain and restore your range of motion and flexibility with chiropractic adjustments so that you can reduce your reliance on OTC and prescription pain medications and potentially eliminate your need for surgery.
