Pain Management Q & A
How can a chiropractor help with pain management?
Chronic neck and back pain or chronic headaches can negatively impact your quality of life. Chiropractic care may be able to offer natural pain relief from debilitating symptoms. Dr. Bell takes a whole-person approach to diagnose and treating your pain so he can recommend a comprehensive treatment plan.
Dr. Bell is certified and trained in a number of pain management techniques, including nutritional pain management. He focuses on getting to the root cause of your symptoms so you can get long-term relief, not just a temporary fix.
Many times, chronic back, neck, and headache pain is the result of an underlying spinal problem. Chiropractic care is an effective method of correcting spinal conditions that lead to chronic pain. Under the care of a skilled, caring chiropractor like Dr. Bell, you can reduce daily pain, increase mobility, and improve your quality of life without becoming dependent on prescription medications.

- Sciatica (nerve compression in the lower spine)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Spondylosis (a form of arthritis in the spine)
- Spondylolisthesis (forward slippage of vertebrae)
- Kyphosis (a humplike rounded back)
Whiplash from a previous auto accident or a sports injury that continues to cause pain even years later may benefit from chiropractic care.
What chiropractic treatments help manage pain long term?
