Chronic Pain Relief Treatments in Naperville, Illinois
Chronic Pain Naperville IL – Cronic Pain Patients are on the the rise and Synergy Institute in Naperville is here to help. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), in 2016, 50 million Americans (over 20 percent of the population) suffered from chronic pain. It’s reported to be the number one reason why people seek medical help and results in a high percentage of Americans’ medical bills and debt. It is said to be responsible over 635 billions dollars in the U.S. annually, but it’s not just the United States that are dealing with this issue.
According to an article in The Global Burden of Disease, a study showed that chronic pain is the No. 1 cause of disability and disease burden globally. With Chronic Pain on the rise Synergy Institute Acupuncture & Chiropractic has brought on the most advanced, natural treatments for chronic pain.
There are two categories of pain that are based on how long one has been suffering from pain, chronic pain or acute pain. Acute pain is pain that arises suddenly and will last from seconds to a couple of months. Acute pain typically is created by an injury or new arising condition. Examples of acute conditions or injuries like ankle sprains, torn ligament after a trauma, whiplash following a car accident, contusions, cuts, or broken bones.
Chronic pain is defined as a pain or symptom that has been ongoing for longer than 3 months. An acute pain can turn into chronic pain if it persists past a three month time period. A person can also have multiple chronic issues at once.
Other than diabetes, most of the chronic conditions written above all can be treated and managed with chiropractic care. Chiropractic care using chiropractic adjustments helps to increase function to the joints in the spine that are stuck, misaligned, or both. Finding and removing these misalignments can help keep a condition from becoming a chronic issue if treatment is started early, can help manage pain by decreasing the severity and frequency of the symptoms, and in some cases, get rid of a chronic problem all together.
We have 2 specialized therapies in addition to chiropractic care that are specifically designed to help those who suffer from a majority of the chronic conditions listed above. These therapies are:
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy can help to alleviate pressure causing degeneration to the discs. Our spinal decompression unit not only pulls the spine straight down, but has the ability to pull to the side. This allows us to open up the spinal joint and disc on the either side that is creating the most pressure. This is an option not available on other spinal decompression units.
K Laser Therapy, is a source oflight energy that helps the body repair/regenerate/rebuild naturally, enhancing the functionality of the body’s cells. Imagine your body as a battery, daily stressors and chronic conditions, such as degenerative disc disease, slowly drain your body of its energy to function and heal at its best. That’s where laser technology comes in! Laser therapy is like re-energizing your internal battery. To function optimally the energy needs to be restored.
At Synergy Institute Acupuncture & Chiropractic we utilize several adjusting techniques and these specialized therapy treatments to help you get the best, most comfortable results possible. We take spinal x-rays to make sure you don’t have any underlying conditions that will stop us from working on you, but also to establish a baseline as to where you are at the beginning of care. Later, we can do follow up x-rays to show you how much has improved.
