|Chiropractic Care and Chronic Pain
Chiropractic care is an essential component of a broad-based approach to the treatment of chronic musculoskeletal pain. Medication alone is never an effective solution to chronic pain as it does not address the root causes of the problem. On the other hand, if biomechanical issues are part of the overall cause, chiropractic care is able to provide a great deal of benefit.
Chronic musculoskeletal pain often has its origins in spinal misalignments. These restrictions in spinal joint mobility may be due to long-term postural inefficiencies or to an old injury - a fall, a motor vehicle accident, or a bending-and-lifting back spasm that took a long time to heal. If spinal misalignments persist, other structures begin to compensate. Sacroiliac joints and ligaments get tight. Hip joints lose some mobility. Knee and ankle motion are compromised, and eventually chronic back pain, hip pain, and/or knee pain develops.
Chiropractic care addresses the cause of these many problems by analyzing, identifying, and correcting spinal alignments. As the biomechanical function of your spine improves, so does the mobility of all other weight-bearing joint such as your hips, knees, and ankles. As a direct result, chronic pain begins to reduce and resolve.

Just 3 sessions with Dr. Goss accomplished what 5 weeks of physical therapy couldn't--finally a treatment that worked for my neck pain! I've been doing so much better. I've continued to see her for maintenance and the occasional urgently needed adjustment. I've been able to get appointments that work with my schedule and have been able to get in the same day when I need to. I've also been amazed by how quickly I am seen when I'm there for treatment--the longest wait I ever had there was 5 minutes to be seen (and that only happened once in the 2 years I've been going there). Usually, I am seen immediately. I highly recommend Complete Chiropractic of Union!
