Lincoln Family Chiropractic Care Relieves Back Pain, and Neck Pain

Are you suffering from headaches or neck pain after an auto accident?

Has a personal injury left you unable to enjoy life due to chronic back pain? At Southwest Chiropractic Center PC in Lincoln, our chiropractor, Dr. Teresa Larson, and our wellness team are dedicated to helping you safely heal using non-invasive chiropractic adjustments. We also offer complementary care including physical therapy and acupuncture to speed internal healing and relieve pain.

Chiropractic care is a natural healing technique that is patient-proven to relieve back pain, neck pain and headache, and restore a full range of movement to your body. Traditional medical care covers up pain symptoms using prescription medication. While prescription painkillers can temporarily relieve pain, these medications cannot correct the underlying condition that is causing the pain in the first place. For example, many of our patients suffer from neck pain due to whiplash from an auto injury. This pain is a symptom that the cervical spine is misaligned and that soft tissues have been injured. Only spinal adjustments can restore your neck's natural alignment and relieve pain.

Lincoln Chiropractor Corrects Subluxations, Restores Spinal Alignment

Many causes of chronic pain are due to subluxations in the spine. A subluxation is a condition in which one or more of the vertebrae in your spine are not in their proper position. This can be caused by natural wear and tear, an accident injury from lifting heavy objects, or an auto injury such as whiplash. A subluxation impairs the ability of nerves in your body to function and properly send messages. This impaired ability results in chronic pain and compromises the functions of internal organs. While medication cannot correct a subluxation, our chiropractor Dr. Larson can, using spinal adjustments.

During your first diagnostic appointment, Dr. Larson will evaluate your musculoskeletal system for subluxation. Symptoms of subluxation include localized pain, tenderness, swelling and difficulty moving. Your body may also be compensating for a subluxation by adopting a different pattern of movement, which can lead to additional problems. It is also possible to have a subluxation and not feel any direct pain symptoms. Instead, you may suffer from digestive problems, low-grade illnesses and general compromised health.

Once Dr. Larson has located the subluxation, she will use chiropractic care to restore alignment and correct this condition. Our chiropractor will design a treatment program specifically tailored for your body's injury recovery and wellness needs. The core of this treatment program is spinal adjustments, which improve alignment. Correct alignment is essential to restoring a full range of motion and flexibility to your body and relieving pressure on nearby nerves. When pressure is relieved, nerve functions are no longer compromised and the body can naturally heal itself.

Depending on your injury, our chiropractor may also recommend complementary therapies including acupuncture and physical therapy to speed internal healing. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing art that naturally relieves neck and back pain by using thin needles to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissues. Physical therapy exercises restore a full range of movement, flexibility and coordination to your body following an accident injury. These exercises can also correct patterns of motion that may be causing pain as your body compensates for subluxation injuries.

If you struggle with pain, there are safe, natural alternatives to invasive surgery and a lifetime of dependency on prescription painkillers. From our gentle chiropractic adjustments to physical therapy and acupuncture, our Lincoln family chiropractic center is committed to helping you get your life back!
