Unfortunately, chronic back pain is one of the most common problems Americans deal with. In fact, this pain can be so debilitating that it can cause professionals to miss a significant amount of work or to not be able to do their jobs anymore. Of course, if you are experiencing pain in the lower left side of your body, back pain isn’t the only issue you could be dealing with.
Are you suffering from pain, stiffness or other issues with your lower back, hips, legs, ankles or feet? If you said “yes” then you’ve come to the right place because the expert team of physical and occupational therapists at Total Health Center in Battle Creek, MI, are ready to help you get back on your feet and feeling pain-free again.
There are a variety of ways in which to reduce pain, swelling and other common complaints, no matter where the symptoms might originate. In fact, one of the benefits of turning to an osteopath is that we provide alternative therapies to help improve your musculoskeletal system without having to undergo invasive procedures or having to take medications, which can often leave you dealing with some unpleasant and lingering side effects.
Instead, we focus on improving how your musculoskeletal system functions as a whole. After all, even if just one vertebra in the spine is misaligned it can affect other areas of the body. During spinal manipulation, controlled force is applied to certain areas and the body will be placed in different positions in order to properly adjust and realign the spine so that everything functions properly. There are several benefits to getting manipulative therapy including:
- Increased blood flow
- Faster healing
- Reduced pain and inflammation
- Improved range-of-motion and flexibility
- Enhanced joint function
Along with spinal manipulation, we also provide our patients with physical therapy and rehabilitation, ergonomic and functional training, electrical stimulation, ultrasound therapy and even cupping to provide relief for everything from a muscular strain within the hips, legs or feet to overuse injuries, sprains and sciatica.
If you are dealing with pain and discomfort in the hips, legs, ankles or feet, then it’s time to find out how our osteopaths could help. Call our office today at (269) 968-0888 to schedule a consultation.
