Pain Relief - As an alternative to drugs, more and more people are turning to
chiropractic care for pain relief. Studies show that chiropractic care is beneficial, and
even preferred for both neck and back pain.
The Annals of Internal Medicine has published several studies that show that
chiropractic manipulation is more effective in treating neck pain than the use of over-
the-counter and prescription medicines. Chiropractic patients experienced a 75%
reduction in pain vs. a 38% pain reduction for patients who took pain medications.
The American College of Physicians low back pain guideline suggests spinal manipulation along with heat, massage, soft tissue therapy, acupuncture and other modalities to treat back pain. In addition to spinal manipulation, Fisher Chiropractic uses
posture and biomechanical re-education, soft tissue techniques (such as IATSM, ART, cupping and fascia movement tape) as well as cold laser and electrical stimulation to help relieve pain and help you feel better in your everyday life.
