Dr. James Monk of Monk Chiropractic Clinic in Chickasha, OK offers pain treatments no matter what your age. Some of the conditions we treat include carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, sciatica, headaches, low back pain, degenerative disc disease, and neck pain.
When it comes to pain treatments, chiropractors look to find the root cause of the symptoms. Chiropractic is a holistic approach that doesn't use medication to get rid of the pain but corrects what is causing it. The belief that the body can heal itself is part of Dr. Monk's approach to whole body health care.
Chiropractic adjustments help to correct misalignment in the back and neck. When the spine is out of alignment, nerves can be pinched and can cause pain in a variety of locations. The misaligned vertebrae in the neck can cause headaches and by getting the alignment corrected, the headaches can be greatly reduced or completely resolved. The impulses traveling from the brain need to get through without interruption and the whole body functions better when everything is lined up.
This ancient Chinese therapy has been used to treat pain for thousands of years. Today, you don't need to receive acupuncture with small needles, it can also be done with a laser or with magnets. When energy flows through your body unobstructed, you can heal more easily.
Pain Neutralization Therapy(PNT)
This is a therapy that provides pain relief by gentle pressure to soft tissue trigger points. For many chronic pain sufferers, it is the miracle that ends their pain. Dr. Monk has been a practitioner for more than 20 years.
Cold laser therapy
Cold laser therapy is applied using a handheld device directly to the injured area. It promotes healing at a cellular level by getting the natural endorphins to help the body to heal itself. It also helps reduce inflammation, which helps with pain relief.
Therapeutic exercise, especially stretching, can be used to target specific areas to help continue the healing process at home. Exercise helps with pain relief as well by encouraging increased circulation and mobility.
