Why Chiropractic Care Should Be Part of Your Chronic Pain Management Plan
Are you one of the 50 million Americans that suffer from chronic pain?
Having pain that does not go away no matter what you try can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Chronic pain that persists can restrict daily activities at work and with family and can lead to frustration, anxiety, depression, and even social isolation.
Fortunately, chiropractic care is a great option for anyone suffering from chronic pain.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about 20 percent of adults in America suffer from pain that lasts three months or longer. Chronic pain is a leading cause of disability and a common reason for seeking medical care.
Dr. Llaird Likens is a trusted chiropractor who has been helping patients with chronic pain for nearly 18 years.
“Dr Likens has been my savior for a few years now. Whenever my hips and lower back get out
of wack a quick adjustment and I’m like new again,” said Amanda, a long time patient of Dr. Likens.
Chronic pain can worsen when it’s not treated properly. Traditional medicine methods can sometimes mask the pain with medication or use surgery that permanently alters the body.
Instead, chiropractic care can release pressure, tension and pain with regular treatments and keep the pain away naturally. Regular treatments keep the tension and pain from building back up in a non-invasive, medication-free way.
Keeping the pain away is important, but there is more to Dr. Likens’ approach.
“He’s also very informational and truly wants to help solve the problem. I’ve been taught how to try and prevent the problems from reoccurring as often,” said Amanda.
Helping patients understand what is happening with their bodies and how it is affecting their health is a primary focus for Dr. Likens. He is genuinely concerned for the patient’s overall wellness and recovery. Treatment is not just about coming in for an adjustment and leaving. Educating and including the patient in on the treatment and recovery plan is vital. Not only does it put the patient more at ease, it can also help reduce future problems, pain and injuries.
Since every patient is different, Dr. Likens ensure that they receive personalized attention and consideration to address their unique situation and needs.
“I would definitely recommend his services to anyone who’s looking for relief,” Amanda said.
