2021 is the year we build on that momentum and focus on living. But if you suffer from chronic pain or pain from an injury, it may be more difficult to live the life you want.
At Back2Health, it’s our commitment to get you back to living the life you’ve been dreaming about. Today we’re going to share the top 5 ways to better manage or heal from physical pain in 2021.
1. See your Chiropractor
When you see your chiropractor, spinal adjustments will be used to align your physical body. With optimum alignment, your nervous system can more effectively send messages to your body. These messages can be as “basic” as your brain telling your knees to bend as you walk or to recognize that you have an injury and sending instructions to your other body’s systems to heal it.
A chiropractor knows the “pathways” your nervous system takes to communicate to each area of the body. Chiropractic adjustments can clear blockages in these paths so the nervous system functions more effectively, speeding your healing time, and getting you back to a normal, pain-free life.
2. Treat aches and pains with Trigenics
Trigenics works by combining three components to the injured site:
- Resistance exercise
- Muscle nerve-sensor stimulation
- Bio-feedback breathing
Patients are active participants during treatment, voluntarily moving and breathing through the Trigenics applications that allows for less tension and improved function. Often, this deep tissue treatment allows for instantaneous results.
Patients can experience relief after one appointment and with continued sessions can see noticeable recovery of chronic ailments, including: frozen shoulder, sprains and strains, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and IT band syndrome. Trigenics is also widely used among athletes to achieve accelerated muscle growth and improvements in performance.
Trigenics is becoming more widely known and used in 2021, helping patients achieve pain-free living and enhanced body performance.
3. Try Class IV Laser Therapy
When your pain originates from deep in your tissues, a massage or chiropractic adjustment might not quite reach the location of the pain. Laser therapy can access this area with the use of focused light (a laser) at very specific wavelengths. The light energy penetrates the superficial layers of your skin to interact with the injured or inflamed deep tissues of your body, activating the cells of your body to accelerate your rate of healing.
Back2Health uses Class IV Laser Therapy, which employs high-intensity, focused energy to accelerate healing from sprains/strains, arthritic joint pain, or post-surgical recovery and rehabilitation, to name a few conditions. Delivered by a medical doctor in our clinic, you can feel confident that this form of therapy will provide you with a safe and effective method for pain relief in joints, bones and muscles.
When we access the deep areas of tissue inflammation and injury to give your healing a boost of energy, you’ll be on your way to a normal, pain-free life.
4. Experience Craniosacral Therapy
When Craniosacral methods are used, blockages preventing the normal flow within the central nervous system can be normalized and enhance the body’s ability to heal. Patients may experience better mobility, more ease and relaxation, or higher energy states, caused by enhanced function of the brain and spinal cord, which can thereby improve the function of all other systems in the body.
Dr. Christian Guenette will usually use Craniosacral Therapy as an integral part of his holistic approach to the healing of chronic pain conditions. Be sure to ask about this effective technique at your next appointment.
5. Treat yourself to Acupuncture
The needles used to tap into energy meridians in the tissues are very thin - only about two hair widths - and so insertion causes little discomfort. Between five and 20 needles are used in a typical treatment. Acupuncture is often used to treat nausea, dental pain, addictions, headaches, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, along with a host of other ailments. Acupuncture can also be used for 'energy balancing.' Although this is the more mysterious characteristic of acupuncture, it often contributes to some of the most amazing results that are achieved when other forms of treatment are ineffective. Be sure to ask about the incredible effects this can have on the body next time you are in the clinic.
Acupuncture, when coupled with other therapies, is another great way you can treat pain in 2021. Consider using acupuncture at Back2Health so you can get back to completing everyday tasks and live a pain-free life.
