Has back pain, headaches and migraines, neck pain or another chronic pain condition compromised your quality of life? If you are struggling with chronic pain, our chiropractor Dr. Jennifer Turnbull Bonde provides chiropractic adjustments as a natural pain relief alternative to prescription painkillers and surgery. Chiropractic adjustments target the root cause for a patient’s pain, delivering long lasting pain relief without the need for medication. Together with our complementary therapies, including nutrition counseling, we provide enhanced wellness care that can make a real difference in your quality of life.
Drug-Free Pain Management and Natural Pain Relief
If you suffer from chronic back pain, neck pain, or headaches and migraines, you deserve immediate, effective pain relief that lasts. While medication can help numb pain symptoms, this relief is temporary. Drugs work by affecting the brain’s ability to process pain signals; once these drugs wear off, pain will return. Our chiropractor Dr. Bonde follows a different approach to treatment. Rather than simply treating symptoms, Dr. Bonde targets the root cause for pain, which is typically a spinal misalignment.
An accident injury, personal injury, or sports injury can affect the spine’s natural alignment. When the vertebrae are no longer properly aligned, they may compress nearby nerves. Depending on the location of this compression, a spinal misalignment may trigger recurring pain in the lumbar spine (lower back), the cervical spine (the neck), or headaches and migraines. Dr. Bonde uses advanced diagnostic tools to identify the precise location of a spinal subluxation. Once this location is identified, Dr. Bonde creates a custom treatment program to restore proper alignment to the spine and relieve nerve compression. Hands-on chiropractic adjustments are very effective for relieving a patient’s back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines.
At Birmingham Wellness Center, we follow a holistic approach to wellness care and pain management. In addition to chiropractic care, we offer complementary therapies, such as massage therapy and nutrition counseling, to support a healthy immune system and boost overall wellness. Massage therapy, for example, targets tension trapped deep within the body’s connective tissues. This muscular tension can restrict the body’s natural range of motion and mobility. Myofascial release is one of the most effective forms of therapeutic massage for releasing this muscular tension, which provides enhanced pain relief for our patients. Applied kinesiology (AK), joint manipulation, and reflexology are also effective treatments for relieving pain associated with sports injuries and injured tissue.
In addition to chiropractic care in Birmingham, patients with chronic pain may also benefit from nutritional counseling. Dietary changes can help reduce internal inflammation, which is associated with increased pain. Our Paleo Diet program, for example, helps to protect our patients’ health and boost the immune system. Implementing dietary changes such as Paleo can also help reduce triggers for headaches and migraines.
At Birmingham Wellness Center, we strongly believe that effective pain management starts with a holistic approach to pain relief. To learn more about the benefits of chiropractic care and the Paleo diet in Birmingham, schedule an appointment by calling (248) 645-6070.
