Drug-Free Pain Management for Neurological Disorders

2

Neuropathy is one of the most common health problems associated with neurological disorders. Neuropathy is a collection of disorders that occur when the peripheral nerves are damaged. This means that the nervous system does not work properly and it is unable to correctly send or receive messages between the brain and the rest of the body. Peripheral neuropathy may be damage to a single nerve or several nerves and is often triggered by disease or trauma to one part of the body. Symptoms of neurological dysfunction include unexplained tingling and burning sensations, extreme sensitivity to touch, lack of coordination, and unexplained muscle weakness.

A misalignment in the musculoskeletal system can negatively affect the body and may be an underlying cause for neurological disorders. Since bones do not protect the peripheral nervous system, it is at risk for damage following an accident injury. At Back to Health Family Chiropractic, helping the body truly heal begins by addressing the underlying health problem, rather than relying on medication to “cover up” the concern. If we believe a musculoskeletal disorder is triggering your neurological problem, chiropractic adjustments may be an effective treatment solution. Our goal is to promote internal healing whenever possible and accelerate a patient’s path back to wellness. Even in the case of chronic conditions, such as MS, chiropractic adjustments can still make a significant difference for our patients’ overall well-being.

If you are suffering from unexplained phantom pains, erectile dysfunction, digestive disorders or insomnia, a neurological disorder may be underlying this condition. Our Fort Worth Chiropractor, Dr. Michlin is trained to help identify potential neurological problems, as well as musculoskeletal problems, and work together to create a complementary treatment program. By focusing on the triggers for your pain, we are able to use alternative therapies rather than relying on medication. Chiropractic adjustments, especially the ATLAS orthogonal adjustment technique, are effective treatment solutions for neurological pain.

Whole body wellness care is also beneficial. For example, we offer health coaching, focusing on the four pillars of health and wellness to get our patients Back To Health 4 Life!
