Chiropractic Care for Health and Wellness

man with back painChiropractic care is a necessary tool for health and wellness for many individuals. It is most often used to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain and associated symptoms of the arms and legs, which are known as neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Many individuals choose chiropractic care because it’s a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.

For many people, the majority of pain in the back and neck is associated with bodily mechanical dysfunction rather than arthritis or disc disease. However, patients with arthritis or disc disease may be more susceptible to bodily mechanical stress which can make them more likely to have inflammation and pain. Relieving these stresses through chiropractic care promotes healing and pain relief without a lot of different medications.

Dr. Gary F. Pirnat, Chiropractor at PIH Health Physicians Medical Group says, “Chiropractic care is a great alternative form of medicine that allows me to truly help people with many different conditions – especially in the back and neck. Often I can teach them how to eliminate or minimize symptoms which improves overall health. It’s a great feeling to see a patient’s quality of life improve.”

If you’re tired from trying different medications to help alleviate pain, maybe it’s time to see how chiropractic care can help you. Many insurance plans often cover chiropractic care. However, if you don’t have chiropractic coverage or you’ve exhausted your chiropractic benefits, PIH Health Chiropractic accepts cash payments.
