Shoulder, neck, back, and joint pain can be extremely disruptive to your lifestyle. If you’re suffering from regular discomfort, you may find it difficult to focus at work, get around comfortably, and fall asleep at night. If you’re afraid of a diagnosis that requires surgery or drugs, you may have avoided seeking treatment for your pain. Fortunately, there are many other courses of treatment available to effectively treat pain long-term. HealthStar Clinic can help you explore these options.
Injections use a combination of steroids and a numbing agent can help treat back or neck pain that’s caused by inflammation or nerve damage. Spinal stenosis, where the spine is narrowed, may be treated with these injections, as well. Injections deliver medication directly to the part of the body where you’re experiencing pain, which can make them more effective than drugs that impact the entire body.
At HealthStar Clinic, we use a number of therapeutic modalities that help our patients recover from injury and restore their wellness.
Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic adjustments apply controlled force to spinal joints to improve motion and relieve back pain.
Ultrasound therapy: Patients suffering from osteoarthritis and other forms of chronic pain benefit from this modality as it reduces inflammation in the body and promotes healing.
Massage therapy: Using targeted therapy and the latest technology, the chiropractors at HealthStar Clinic use instrumentation to relieve chronic pain as well as help regain proper alignment. When combined with treatment and stretching, this therapy offers pain relief without the need for drugs or surgery.
Dry Needling: Also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, this treatment works to decrease muscle tension in a similar way to acupuncture.
Vibration Therapy: Increases flexibility and decreases muscle soreness by stimulating blood flow throughout the entire body. It can also produce the effect of building strength in patients as well as reducing cortisol levels – your body’s “stress” chemical.
Interferential Electrotherapy: Using a low frequency, interferential current therapy can relieve chronic pain by relaxing muscles, stimulating tissue recovery, as well as stimulating the nerves.
Disc Therapy: Increases range of motion in the joints, and fights the effects that gravity plays on the spine. Many patients suffering from the pain of herniated and bulging discs have found relief with HealthStar Clinic’s disc therapy treatment program.
