Natural Pain Relief

Natural Pain Relief at Birmingham Wellness Center

When you're in pain, you know you want relief -- but not just any kind of relief. Some options such as drugs present serious risks and shortcomings, from the danger of addiction to the fact that they can only mute your symptoms temporarily. On the other end of the scale, you may hesitate to schedule major surgery just to alleviate pain. Fortunately, Birmingham Wellness Center in Birmingham MI can offer you a drug-free, surgery-free path to pain relief through our conservative healing techniques.

Pain and the Musculoskeletal System

A wide range of musculoskeletal issues can cause or contribute to acute or chronic pain. A sports injury, auto accident injury, or workplace injury can do acute damage to the body in the wink of an eye. Impacts on the musculoskeletal system can dislocate joints, throw your spinal alignment off-center, and tear muscle, tendons, or connective tissues. These painful problems can be accompanied by additional neurological discomfort due to pinched nerves. A herniated disc or dislocated spinal structure can press on the spinal cord or its nerve roots, referring pain, tingling, numbness, and other symptoms throughout the arms or legs (as in sciatica).

Both local and referred pain may also feature in chronic conditions. Chronic pain can seem especially brutal because the underlying cause never seems to resolve itself. Old injuries cause abnormal scar tissue to form around muscles, making it hard for them to move without pain. Long-Untreated spinal misalignment places muscle groups under constant painful stress. Bulging discs and other degenerative conditions cause chronic neck, back, and extremity pain. Some syndrome such as fibromyalgia causes everything from muscle spasms and headaches to painful issues such as IBS.

Our Birmingham Chiropractor Can Treat Many Painful Conditions

Our Birmingham chiropractor, Dr. Jennifer Turnbull Bonde, can help you conquer your acute or chronic pain by treating its source. In many cases, a spinal evaluation will reveal alignment problems or nerve impingement that can be corrected through chiropractic adjustments. Massage therapy techniques such as myofascial release can help release scar tissue and chronic tightness while encouraging damaged tissues to heal. We even offer dietary suggestions and nutritional counseling to reduce inflammatory pain. Turn to us for safe, non-invasive treatment to manage your:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache and migraine pain
  • Fibromyalgia symptoms
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
