If you suffer from headaches, migraines, multiple sclerosis or an accident injury, chronic pain can stop you from living your life. Simple tasks, such as walking up the stairs or even sitting for extended periods of time, can become incredibly painful. Many medical professionals turn to prescription medications or recommend invasive surgery to address these conditions and provide pain management. At Back to Health Family Chiropractic, we believe that natural, non-invasive and drug-free therapies are the most effective way to manage pain, and most importantly, to get ride of pain at its source. Our patient-proven strategies have made a difference for thousands. Here’s how our Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin can help you.
Have you sustained an accident in Fort Worth? An untreated car accident injury can lead to years of pain thanks to whiplash injuries. Whiplash causes a misalignment to the cervical spine. Depending on the type of misalignment, this may result in chronic headaches and migraines, neck pain, and may even be a contributing factor for fibromyalgia or multiple sclerosis. If you suffer from whiplash pain symptoms like chronic headaches, a diagnostic appointment with our chiropractor can help determine if this pain is due to an underlying and untreated injury. Rather than “covering up” headache pain with medication, Dr. Michlin removes this pain by addressing the root cause.
Dr. Michlin provides cutting-edge chiropractic care, including the Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments. This adjustment technique focuses on the atlas vertebra, the top vertebra in the spine. Think of the atlas vertebra as the first link in the spine’s “chain” of vertebras. Keeping this link aligned ensures that the rest of the chain falls into place. Regular adjustments are an important part of a comprehensive pain management strategy. Atlas Orthogonal adjustments have been featured on the Montel Williams Show, Doctors and many news broadcasts for providing life-changing pain management.
Atlas Orthogonal adjustments are also an effective strategy for managing multiple sclerosis pain and neurological symptoms. New research suggests that MS lesions in a patient’s brain may be directly connected with the presence of inreased intracranial pressure caused by a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inside the skull. A traumatic injury to the cervical spine, such as a Fort Worth personal injury or whiplash injury may be responsible for this fluid build-up. Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic adjustments may stop or reduce the build-up of CSF. By reducing fluid build-up, our chiropractor can help stop damage to the brain’s nerve fibers and effectively manage existing pain.
At Back to Health Family Chiropractic, our goal is to help each patient live his or her best possible life. While we cannot claim to cure chronic health conditions like fibromyalgia or MS, through spinal adjustments we can often manage the pain and symptoms by removing the cause of irritation to the nervous system. Adjustments are an effective alternative to traditional prescription medications. This is important because the long-term use of pain medication can lead to dependency and may even cause additional health problems.
If you suffer from chronic pain, our message is simple: there is a natural pain management option! Pain from a personal injury can be naturally managed and alleviated without the need for constant medication.
