When it comes to the spine, a wide variety of treatment options are offered by both medical and alternative medicine practitioners. Most of these doctors focus on pain and symptom relief (secondary conditions), and they do an excellent job at this. First, doctors often start with medication or herbal/homeopathic remedies which can quench their patient’s symptom effectively. If medications doesn’t work, then courses of physical therapy may be used to strengthen muscular weakness, address spasm, or increase mobility.
If the symptoms persist, injections may be used to calm the site of pain. And when all of these options have been exhausted, more invasive procedures like surgery come into the picture. All of these treatment programs are effective given the appropriate time and place, and they all address the goal of symptomatic relief.
Our goal at Precision Chiropractic is, however, a bit different: we aim to restore the structural integrity of your spine, to identify and fix the underlying problem (the primary condition) that has caused the symptom or symptoms in the first place. Dr. Selle has built excellent relationships with the best health care providers throughout the community. If during the consultation he finds that Precision Chiropractic isn’t right for you, we will make sure to find the best practitioner to help resolve your specific condition.
