Treatment Options to help Manage Your Pain:
Non-Invasive Non Drug:
Available at Zionsville Chiropractic and Rehabilitation:
This is the main service we offer here at Zionsville Chiropractic and Rehabilitation (ZCRC). Chiropractic care works by restoring optimal joint and soft tissue function by way of chiropractic adjustments and myofascial release techniques.
Another main service offered by the chiropractic physicians at ZCRC. Rehabilitation is used in Indianapolis pain management to strengthen muscles that have become weak due to injury, accident, overuse, or repetitive use.
Our chiropractors have extensive post graduate education in rehabilitation and are board certified in physical therapy.
Other services offered at ZCRC include nutrition guidance, nutritional supplementation, lifestyle modification, and exercise therapy.
Over the Counter Drugs (OTC’s): Completely safe if used properly and in moderation.
- Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)
Prescription Drugs: Can be dangerous and addictive if misused.
- Oxycodone (Percocet)
- Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
Invasive Indianapolis Pain Management:
- Injections (needle placed into the back or neck and medication is injected with a syringe to “block” the pain.)
- Surgery – Should be last resort as sometimes the risks outweigh the benefits (spinal fusion, laminectomy, discectomy, disc replacement)
Your options for managing your pain vary from non-invasive non drug (chiropractic) to very invasive (surgeries).
You should always start with the least invasive option and completely exhaust your treatment options before moving onto surgery as surgery has the most amount of risk involved (anesthesia, pain getting worse, loss of joint function, loss of normal movement).
However, there are times when surgery gets pushed to the top of your treatment options. If you’re experiencing any of the following please seek medical attention right away:
- inability to control bowl or bladder
- extreme weakness in the upper or lower extremity
