Many people experience chronic pain in some form. Chronic pain is pain that persists and doesn’t go away in a normal amount of time. Chronic pain also typically doesn’t respond to regular pain management such as prescription painkillers. Also with the amount of people today trying to reduce their medicine intake, chiropractic care is a great solution for pain management.
Chiropractic care can help treat chronic pain. Chiropractors use spinal manipulation and other techniques to treat chronic pain that can be caused from misalignment or muscle tension.
Often times it is hard to pinpoint the cause of chronic pain but a chiropractic assessment can help find the origin of the pain. A lot of the time chronic pain is caused by conditions such as arthritis or osteoarthritis or spinal issues. Chiropractors are trained to pinpoint where the pain is coming from and develop the correct treatment plan for that patient.
Chronic pain can also appear in the form of a headache or migraine. Headaches can be caused by stress, lack of nutrition or hydration, environmental factors, or spinal issues. Chiropractors assess your symptoms and run tests to help find the underlying cause of headaches or migraines and help reduce frequency or get rid of them all together. Dr. Chris specializes in treating patients with migraines.
It’s important for you to know what is causing your pain so that you can correctly address it.
Dr. Chris will ask questions and get to know you and your pain symptoms. He will then proceed with further tests if he deems necessary. The next step is developing a treatment plan and starting your chiropractic care. This may include spinal manipulation, therapies or exercises for you to do.

Supplements can help with pain and inflammation. At Olive Branch Chiropractic we suggest Standard Process supplements because of their purity and potency. Dr. Chris can help you figure out what supplements would help with your specific chronic pain and how best to take those.
Custom orthotic inserts can also help with chronic pain. If your feet aren’t being properly supported then it could cause alignment issues in your legs, hips and spine which could cause pain and inflammation. We sell Foot Levelers custom orthotics and also do custom fittings to ensure you are getting exactly what you need.
