At Pain Relief Partners, chiropractic care is just one of many non-invasive medical procedures offered to provide solutions for a wide array of medical issues including acute and chronic pain. For those seeking chiropractic adjustment in Vancouver, Washington, our clinic offers this as an effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain and much more. The efficacy of chiropractic care has been well known for over a century, with numerous studies proving the practice effective in treating back pain, sciatica, neck pain, dizziness, and even high blood pressure. It’s an ancient art and science, with manipulations performed by Hippocrates dating back to the 4th Century B.C.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Drug-free and non-surgical, chiropractic care is particularly useful for chronic pain management. Residents of Vancouver, Washington and the surrounding areas can count on our clinic to provide this and other non-invasive treatments to help them achieve optimal wellness. At Pain Relief Partners, Dr. Tom Kessinger uses a variety of treatment modalities to treat pain associated with the spine. Two tools he commonly uses during a treatment session are arthrostim and the percussor. Arthrostim is like a “little jack hammer” that is able to mobilize the joints without straining the joint or causing the patient discomfort. Many patients have degenerative disc disease, stenosis, or arthritis in their back and neck, and aggressive, quick adjustments can be painful or harmful to their spine. The arthrostim is used to gently adjust the joints and provide patients with relief and increased mobility. Many of our patients enjoy the treatment and the great response that the treatment brings without the “cracking” associated with a traditional manual adjustment. The percussor is a deep tissue myofascial release instrument that is able to release muscle spasms, deep tissue tightness, and muscle strains. Many of our patients report this is their favorite part of treatment that they receive while in our office because it is relaxing and helps with built up tension in their bodies. We have helped thousands of patients in our office find relief with these treatments. Because dysfunction in the spine can alter the function of the nervous system and create pain and illness, chiropractic care has a wide range of applications to address many conditions and a wide range of different life stages. The medical professionals at Pain Relief Partners embrace an integrated approach to healthcare, offering non-invasive medical treatments that address the root cause of pain and medical concerns. Chiropractic care is done in conjunction with other treatment modalities such as trigger point injections, nerve blocks for neuropathy or sciatic pain, joint injections, and the above mentioned arthrostim and percussion to form a customized treatment plan for each patient in order to accomplish the best results.
