An Introduction to Musculoskeletal Medicine

Understanding your body to understand your pain

No matter how far science has come, we are still only at the precipice of our understanding of pain. Even with a proper diagnosis, the best known treatment may not work for everyone. What’s worse is that many people will never get a proper diagnosis before starting on a, “magic bullet,” treatment plan that they found on the internet. Because pain is often intangible, a vacuum has opened in which a host of unqualified “health writers” and less-than-ethical doctors will offer you anything to drive business.

We believe that anyone already suffering from chronic pain should not suffer further by wasting time, energy and money on treatments that promise everything and deliver nothing. At OFW Chiropractic, we believe that understanding the musculoskeletal form of a human is the best way to understand and treat that human’s chronically recurring pain.

There is no magic pill for pain

Physical “pain” is exceedingly difficult to diagnose and even harder to treat effectively. Every single case should be treated as wholly unique; for example, two people with the same diagnosis may need completely different treatment plans. At our office, we begin with a comprehensive medical exam that takes into account your medical history and profile of pain; and a complete musculoskeletal examination to determine whether structural or muscular dysfunction is causing your pain.

Why chiropractic works for treating pain where other treatments fail

If we determine that you are a good candidate for chiropractic, we move forward with a multi-dimensional treatment plan that incorporates multiple modalities of chiropractic therapy, diet, exercise and lifestyle adjustments to effect serious improvements on your pain symptoms. In comparison to other, more aggressive therapies, chiropractic is a low-risk, high-reward form of treatment that will help you overcome pain. If you are interested in starting the conversation about getting rid of your pain, give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
