Chiropractic care is a healthcare system that addresses the deeper, underlying causes of pain and injury rather than just masking the overlying symptoms with medications. So when we say pain management, we really mean lasting, long-term pain relief, and especially pain and injury prevention. Our experienced, highly-skilled team of chiropractors in Groton accomplishes this by helping patients achieve optimal spinal and musculoskeletal health, and by promoting good health habits and practices overall. Our Advanced Back and Neck Care Center is the place to come if you are seeking relief from conditions like back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, sciatica, car accident injuries, sports injuries, fibromyalgia and many more.
How Our Chiropractors in Groton Help You Heal
Your nervous system is like the information superhighway for your entire body. If the road (your spinal cord) is clear, then critical messages between your brain and your body can travel without interruption to direct essential healing and health directives to keep you in good health. Unfortunately, any number of situations and conditions can cause communication interruptions for the nerves that travel out from the spinal cord, between your vertebrae and out to the rest of your body. Long-term poor posture habits, car accident injuries, sports injuries and other situations can bump the vertebrae out of place, causing pressure on discs and nerves. These vertebral misalignments (“subluxations”) hurt and prevent your brain from communicating effectively to the areas where the nerves are pinched. This is where our chiropractors in Groton can help.
When subluxations cause neck pain, back pain, sciatica, headaches and migraines, and aggravate fibromyalgia and other chronic pain disorders, chiropractic care is extremely helpful. Our chiropractors apply gentle, precise, hands-on forces to realign vertebrae into their correct position, which immediately releases pinched nerves and brings pain relief. In many cases, this is only the beginning. Long-lasting pain management, particularly for long-term healing of sports injuries, car accident injuries and chronic conditions like fibromyalgia, we also recommend combining chiropractic care with complementary therapies like massage therapy, therapeutic exercise and physiotherapy, acupuncture, nutrition and lifestyle counseling. Combining these therapies addresses the whole body’s needs for accelerated healing and relief as well as preventing future pain and injury.
For example, if you fell and injured your back, our chiropractors in Groton will fully examine you and listen to your concerns, then apply spinal adjustments to bring misaligned vertebrae back into correct posture. At the same time, you may also have pulled muscles or strained tendons, which can also cause weakness and referred pain. Massage and physiotherapy can help accelerate soft tissue healing, while therapeutic exercises can restore strength and range of motion to injured areas. Good nutrition and weight loss counseling can fuel your body’s good health and relieve systemic stress from excess weight and toxins to round out your healing!
