Using Chiropractic Care As A Supportive Therapy For Snellville Cancer Patients

Dec 11, 2015

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on treating ailments, disorders, and diseases that affect the:

  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Nervous System.

The primary role of our Chiropractors is to provide holistic solutions that relieve pain and stiffness connected to your muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments.

For cancer patients in Snellville who have had to endure surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy, Chiropractic treatment offers a variety of adjustments that relieve tension and restricted vessels that have built up as a result of these forms of cancer treatment.

Chiropractic Care and Cancer

Most types of treatments dedicated to fighting cancer tend to create significant stress for your musculoskeletal system. Because of this, some patients experience: peripheral neuropathy, back aches, back pain, headaches, muscle tension, nausea, and extreme fatigue.

With the use of Chiropractic care, patients are able to reduce the amount of stress that’s placed on their body and throughout their internal systems, as well as increase/improve their:

  • Flexibility
  • Mobility
  • Core strength
  • Balance.

as well as their overall wellbeing.

Why Cancer Patients Choose To See A Chiropractor

One of the primary reasons why Snellville cancer patients use Chiropractic Treatment is because of how well it helps relieve and control pain, tension throughout the body, and painful headaches.

Treating Each Cancer Patient

Consult with your oncologist to see if Chiropractic Care is appropriate for you. If so, our doctors will work with them and the rest of your established care team to develop a treatment plan that compliments their recommendations.

Depending on the unique characteristics of your condition, your Chiropractor may offer non-invasive manual techniques that help correct joint, bone, and muscle problems, as well as help restore your nerve function.

One of the more common therapeutic procedures doctors perform is Chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulation.

The process of spinal manipulation requires the manual application of a controlled, gentle force to your spin and other areas of your body that have become restricted or misaligned.

Other techniques that help restore mobility and correct alignment include:

  • Heat
  • Ice
  • Traction
  • Electrical stimulation of the muscles
  • Stretching
  • Manual, hands-on adjustments.

X-rays and other forms of technology are used to monitor and keep track of your progress.
