    What to Expect from Your First Chiropractic Exam

    Last updated 1 year ago

    When the muscles and bones in your body aren’t in proper alignment they can affect your nervous system and cause pain to radiate throughout your body. A chiropractor can help you find relief from this pain by gently restoring your body’s natural spinal alignment. Read on to learn how your chiropractor can begin to alleviate your pain during your first appointment.

    Provide background information about your pain
    When you first check in at the office, you will be asked to fill out a series of forms about your medical history and your back injury. This information will help your chiropractor identify what kind of spinal damage is causing your pain. Common questions you will be asked relate to the location of your back pain, the events surrounding your injury, and the types of movement that make your pain worse.

    Take specific orthopedic tests
    Your chiropractor will begin by administering a series of general tests to determine blood pressure, heart rate, and reflexes. After obtaining this information, he or she will perform orthopaedic tests to judge your range of motion in the damaged area and the strength of your back muscles. If your chiropractor still needs more information to determine the most appropriate treatment plan, they will administer an X-ray exam or an MRI scan.

    Begin treatment plan
    Once your chiropractor has determined the source of your back pain, he or she will be able to create a unique healing plan for your spinal condition. Your chiropractor will most likely combine a series of adjustments that properly align your spinal joints with eastern medicine techniques such as massage or acupuncture. These adjustments restore normal joint function, while massage and acupuncture can help alleviate pain and improve soft tissue healing in your body.    

    At the Pain & Wellness Center in Peabody, Massachusetts our pain management team works closely with each patient to create a customized treatment plan. Our “integrative pain therapy” combines the most technologically advanced medical treatments with the healing power of Eastern medicine. Take the first step toward your pain management by calling (781) 780-3616.

    A Look at How Spinal Stimulation Works

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Some patients who suffer from chronic back pain don’t find the relief they need from traditional spine therapy techniques or back surgery. When these other treatment methods fail, the pain from their injuries will return and compromise the quality of their lives. Spinal stimulation therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can effectively help some patients manage pain.

    In this video, Dr. Joe Ordia, M.D. of the Pain & Wellness Center in Peabody explains how pain signals are transmitted from the site of your injury to your brain. Because your spinal cord plays a primary role in this process the spinal cord stimulator can help you alleviate pain by blocking the transmission of pain signals to your brain. Not only can this technique be used to alleviate pain from sudden injury, but it can also be used alleviate symptoms of diabetic neuropathy or pain stemming from chronic arthritis.  

    To learn if spinal stimulation is the best way to treat your pain call Pain & Wellness Center at (781) 780-3616.
