Non-Medicated Pain Relief through Chiropractic Care

dr-lynelle-mcsweeney-reno-back-painIt’s pretty common in today’s world to reach for over-the-counter pain relievers when you’re feeling out of sorts with a headache, an aching back, sore joints, or some other physical ailment. And while these medications may seem benign, they can present their own issues, including liver damage, gastrointestinal bleeding, and more. So how about an alternative? Here’s when non-medicated pain relief through chiropractic care may be a better option.

Defining Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a drug-free therapy that addresses the spine and joints. Pain and limited mobility can be alleviated by bringing the spine into proper alignment. And while that’s primarily managed through spinal manipulation, there are many other treatments involved in chiropractic care. Here at Dr. Lynelle McSweeney’s office in Reno, she treats men, women and children of all ages with a mix of therapies, including:

  • Myofacial release
  • Massage therapy
  • Heat therapy
  • Electrical muscular stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Postural and exercise education
  • Ergonomic counseling

But Does it Work?

Yes! Spinal manipulation is one of the therapies recommended by the American College of Physicians for low back pain, as an alternative to OTC pain relievers.

If you’ve been taking medication regularly to manage headaches, back pain, neck pain, or other joint issues, consider reaching out to Dr. Lynelle McSweeney. She’ll assess you to determine whether you’ll benefit from chiropractic care – and it’s pretty likely that you will.
