Back pain – nearly everyone suffers from it at one point in their life. For those with chronic or acute back pain, spinal manipulation treatment from a chiropractor, can be a viable treatment option. Acute low-back pain is one of the most common types of back pain in the U.S. A 2017 study released by the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that people with acute low-back pain can successfully find relief through manual spinal manipulation by a chiropractor.
While back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic therapy, people visit chiropractors for a variety of other treatments and symptoms. The top 10 reasons to see a chiropractor are:
1. Back pain
2. Neck pain
3. Pain & Tingling
6. Poor Sleep Quality
8. Injuries due to auto accidents
9. Effort to reduce painkiller
10. Strengthen Immune System
In addition to, or separately from, chiropractic therapy, people can also seek treatment from a physical therapist to find relief for pain from an injury or chronic health issue. The top 10 reasons to see a physical therapist include:
1. Reduce or eliminate pain
2. Avoid surgery
3. Improve mobility
4. Recover from a stroke
5. Recover from or prevent a sports injury

However, once a patient has exhausted treatment from either or both a chiropractor or physical therapist, and is still experiencing pain and discomfort that disrupts everyday life and impacts well being, what are their options?
Acute Pain Therapies provides unique services for pain, which are typically only available in hospitals. We focus on effective means of controlling pain including nerve blocks, ketamine infusions, and nerve cryotherapy, rather than prescribing addictive medications. These solutions are designed to help a patient overcome the most severe periods of pain and focus on their own self-directed recovery. We focus on making our patients feel as comfortable as possible during and after their treatments.
Acute Pain Therapies offers pain management for the following.
● Nerve entrapment
