Pain Management

Natural Pain Management for Lakewood Ranch, Fruitville, Bradenton, and Sarasota

Pain not only commands your attention to a health problem, but it can also be a problem in and of itself. Whether you're suffering from acute pain in the immediate aftermath of an injury or you've been plagued by nagging chronic pain for years, you may think your options are limited to risking major surgery, taking powerful painkillers or just "living with it." But here at Lakewood Ranch Chiropractic, our chiropractors believe that living should be an enjoyable experience -- and that's why we offer a variety of safe, effective, non-invasive pain management solutions for Lakewood Ranch, Fruitville, Bradenton and Sarasota residents.

Our Lakewood Ranch Chiropractors can treat common conditions such as:

  • Back pain (including lower back pain) - Back pain may be related to a degenerative condition of the spine, work injury, auto accident injury, pinched nerve or chronic muscular strain. Chiropractic adjustment to correct the spine's alignment can relieve stresses and pressures that cause thoracic or lower back pain.

  • Neck Pain - Neck pain can be attributable to violent injuries such as whiplash, or it may be the result of posture-related muscular and neurological strain. Upper cervical adjustments, massage, corrective exercises and ergonomic/lifestyle changes can help you enjoy a pain-free neck once again.

  • Headache & Migraine - A tension headache can occur when a muscle called the RCPM muscle spasms. Upper spinal adjustments and soothing massage can relieve strain on this muscle. Chiropractic adjustment that normalizes nerve function, coupled with nutritional and lifestyle counseling, can also help reduce migraine issues.

  • Scoliosis - Scoliosis can cause back pain and other complications if it's allowed to progress. Our spinal screenings can catch it early so we can recommend bracing or other treatments.

  • Sciatica - If you have leg pain, tingling, and numbness due to sciatica, our chiropractor can administer spinal decompression therapy to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated disc.

  • TMJ - TMJ pain in the jaw can sometimes be related to a pinched cervical nerve that affects muscle function. We can isolate the underlying cause of your TMJ and treat it without drugs or surgery. 

  • Fibromyalgia - Fibromyalgia is characterized by muscle knots that cause multiple tender points on the body. Massage therapy techniques are particularly helpful for releasing these knots.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - An inflamed carpal tunnel in the wrist can be soothed via corrective exercises and advanced massage techniques. We can also treat similar symptoms caused by pinched-nerve disorders such as thoracic outlet syndrome.

  • Arthritis - Arthritis pain and inflammation can respond nicely to a personalized program of chiropractic care, massage therapy and exercise to keep the joints limber.
